The How to’s of Healthy Hair


hair products

Several of my friends are currently trying to grow out their hair. I’ve gotten some questions about my hair care routine and how I keep my hair long and healthy.  So I thought I would share the products I am currently using and how they fit into my routine. I’m by no means a hair expert, but this is what works for me!

I wash my hair every three days. I don’t have oily hair at all so I can skip a couple of days and be just fine.  I do use a dry shampoo on those in between days simply to give my hair more volume. I use Clean Freak Dry Shampoo and it does the trick and smells great! On my shampoo days, I use Healthy sexy hair sulfate free shampoo and Healthy sexy hair sulfate free conditioner.  I love these products. They are super moisturizing and free of chemicals that are often found in hair care products.  I haven’t gone 100% granola yet, but I certainly avoid chemicals whenever I can! I leave the conditioner on my hair for about 5 minutes then rinse. If you want to keep your shampoo at a drugstore price point, I really like the Tresemme Naturals Shampoo and Conditioner with Avocado.  It is also very moisturizing and doesn’t contain as many chemicals  Once a week, I use a hair mask.. This strengthens the hair and deeply moisturizes.  I especially love the Carols Daughter Monoi hair mask.  I experience less breakage now that I am using this.  And a container will last you quite a while.  I wash my hair at night and let it dry naturally so this avoids the heat of a blow dryer.  This isn’t actually by choice, but my two year old can’t be trusted for a SECOND. So no more daytime showers for a while!  I also use a leave in conditioner so my hair is easier to comb out.  I am currently using the It’s a 10 leave in conditioner lite.  This is also a heat protectant!  It is super important to use one before you use your straightener, wand, or curling iron.  After I curl my hair on day 1, I just curl a few pieces on day 2 or 3 to touch up so not all of my hair is getting curled every day.  Shiny and healthy hair go together, so I use a shine spray when I want my hair to have that extra sheen.  Redken Shine Flash 02  does the trick!

Our hair and skin are a reflection of whats going on internally, so I take a Biotin supplement and a multivitamin.  I’m currently taking the Plexus X Factor multi vitamin. (Can be purchased through Amy Blue 913-553-7644).

I hope this helps you in your quest for stronger, healthier (and longer if you so choose) hair! Please comment if you have any thoughts or questions.  I would love to hear from you:)
