If you’ve been here for awhile, you are aware of my hair care routine. It went from the basics (drug store shampoo and conditioner) to like, I actually have to have deep thought when I’m shopping for these things. It matters what you put into and onto your body folks.
So this is gonna be a more short and simple post, but one I thought you might find interesting. If you like to learn more about my skin care techniques also, definitely check out my skin care routine– a must read for this summer.
Firstly, I’ll start with my shampoo.
I switch between this shampoo and dandruff shampoo. My scalp is kind of moody when it comes to being dry or oily, so I try to adjust the products accordingly. I like to make sure my shampoos have proteins or vitamins that are good for my hair. Keratin is really good for damaged hair, which bleached hair kind of is. I’m growing my blonde out right now, so my hair will be easier to control during school. I also want my hair to grow back healthy, instead of constantly treating it and burning my roots. But while I still have bleached hair, I want it to get as much moisture and protein it needs to be beautiful. This stuff works really well for me. It’s already almost gone, and I’ll be sad to see it go. It’s on the expensive side, and by expensive I mean, like, maybe $8 or $12 or something. Although it was a great buy, I will still be on the lookout for things that I feel could be better for my hair.
Secondly, my conditioner.
My conditioner is what I really consider to be the most important part of my hair care regimen. It is a MAJOR factor in the smoothness of my hair, and overall softness.
I’ve been using this brand for awhile, and I believe in my last Hair Care Routine I was using a pink bottle. That one worked well for a little bit, but this new one that I use smells even more amazing and works great for my hair type. It has keratin proteins in it, (are you seeing a trend here?) which is exactly what the other conditioner had, but this one also contains a variety of oils. I believe these oils are really what help smooth my hair to make it soft to the touch. I love these little guys so much that I take them with me everywhere. If I’m ever going to need a shower, this conditioner is coming with me.
The question may be on your mind, “why don’t you use the same brand for shampoo and conditioner?” The truth: I honestly hadn’t really thought about doing that. That seems logical. Maybe I’ll try that soon lol.
And last, my serum.
This serum is a sample size that I got in an Ipsy package. When I got this, I wasn’t really into putting products in my hair, but I was hopeful this stuff would work, and was willing to try it out. I am so glad I did. This product is like a miracle detangle potion. Sometimes when my hair was wet, or dry, and I didn’t brush it for let’s say….3 hours, it became a giant mess. Well, this was going on for a while, and it seemed like no matter how much conditioner I used, my hair would always frizz up. I was not down for that. And brushing through my mess of hair would take forever, and was honestly kind of painful. That’s when I remembered this little buddy. It helped me comb through my troubled locks like a dream. I was honestly amazed how well this works. And the oils don’t make your hair look greasy. The pump distrubutes a control amount, so you don’t end up with overly oiled hair. I use this once and my hair is considerably tamable for about 2 weeks or so. I love it. Go buy it. For real.
This is what I’ve been using for my damaged hair. As my natural hair color comes back, this may change up a bit. I’ll let you know.
Thanks for reading. Y’all know I always got the hookup for what keeps me looking good. I hope this helps if you’ve been having problem with frizzy, tangled, or dehydrated hair this season.
