MY HAIR CARE ROUTINE



I always have a lot of people ask me what I do to my hair to make it look so healthy. Aside from drinking lots of water and taking my vitamins, I LOVE products! My sister-in-law is currently in hair school and one of my best friends is a hair dresser, so I always have a great group around me to help with keeping my hair fresh & healthy! If you are looking to grow your hair, here are some tips that I followed and products that I use that I have found did the trick! 



GET IT TRIMMED! 

I know when you are wanting to grow it out, the last thing you want to do is cut any amount of length off. Trust me, you need to! The ends of your hair get dry, dead and very damaged so it tends to break and split. This is NOT what you want, because if the ends keep splitting, then the length is going to stay the same. I get it trimmed every 4-5 months, or just when I feel like it need it. I can tell when I straighten my hair and the ends don't lay, they are puffy and dry, thats how I know its time to go!

MASKING

Whether it's a homemade mask or store bought, I find putting on a weekly hair mask is key! I've tried all the home remedies of eggs, mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar and baking soda. All that it's done is create a huge mess! I know some may be beneficial but I like to stick to Coconut Oil. Honestly, I've been using it for years and it's never failed. The best is to get your bottle or tin, set it in warm water in your sink and let it melt a bit. Once its melted, take some in your hands and cover your head - I usually have a comb that I comb it all through so its even. Once your hair is all oiled up, take some plastic wrap and wrap your head up! You can either let it sit like that for about an hour or if you're in a rush - set the blow dryer on it for about 15 mins. Wash it out with shampoo and conditioner & vola! Your hair will be thanking you later :)

SALON SHAMPOO

Using salon brand shampoo I have found makes my hair stronger and takes to colour a lot easier. From going brunette to blonde and vice versa, I feel like a huge part of it not being damaged is from using a good shampoo. I love Joico, I switch between the Colour Therapy & Colour Violet (also known for Purple Shampoo) Once you switch from a department store brand to this, you'll never go back!

AFTER SHOWER CARE

Once I've washed my hair and towel dried it, I always put a protection and detangling spray.  When your hair is wet it can break really easily - so violently brushing your hair out isn't always a good idea! This L'Oreal Protecting Detangling Care spray works wonders - just spray through your hair and start brushing from bottom to top (thats what I found works the best for me because I have a lot of natural wave when my hair is wet) It's easy and also will protect when you are styling. Once that is done I always add in a small dime size of Argan Oil. I find that it helps my hair to be really soft and shiny! It also helps to protect your colour - which we all worked so hard to get :)



I will post some styling tips in another post, for now, here are the products I've described above! Message or comment if your have any questions or tips of your own!!

  3. I can not believe I found another person who discovered coconut oil for hair care treatment. My wife has been using it for years, and she recently asked me about trying it on my beard. Now I am absolutely addicted to using the oil because it keeps the beard manageable and soft, it also protects it from becoming brittle and breaking.
