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:)
