MY HAIR CARE ROUTINE

March 10, 2013





Bumble & Bumble thickening serum & Spray de Mode hairspraySephora Paddle brush with Ionic Technology | Alterna caviar repair re-texturizing protein cream | Zoe hair strengthener 


Hey Everyone,

So I wanted to do a quick little post about my hair routine, since I've been getting so many emails about what I do for my hair and which products I use. 

1. To keep my hair healthy I normally wash it no more than 2-3 times a week. I find that excessive washing makes my hair really dry, regardless of the products I use. When I do wash my hair, I always make sure to apply shampoo only to the scalp and never to the ends of my hair, which tend to be somewhat dry. I usually just work the shampoo gently down the ends of the hair, making sure not to scrub, which can lead to breakage or knots.

2. Unless I am short for time, I skip blowdrying completely, and just let my hair air dry. Pretty sure, you’ll be surprised how much healthier your hair looks and feels if you skip the blowdryer a few times a week. I know I certainly was, and overtime definitely saw a lot less split ends. I also like to apply Alterna caviar repair re-texturizing protein cream to prevent split ends and keep my hair from getting too dry. Now, I could never say goodbye to my blowdryer forever, but I do like to give it a day off every once in a while.

3. Every morning, I brush my hair for at least 10-15 minutes, using Sephora Paddle brush with Ionic Technology for maximum shine. Combing hair regularly helps to improve circulation and keeps scalp healthy. The importance of brushing hair daily, is something I learned from my mother, who always had the most beautiful, long hair. So, I make sure to follow her advice:)
4. Straight styles are the easiest for me, since my hair is pretty straight to begin with. Usually, I flat iron only the ends to give it a more polished look. I finish with just a bit of BB Spray De Mode hairspray with flexible hold to help the style last all day.





Keep on smiling,
Love,
Annabelle

For hair that is dry/damaged – and desperately in need of love – I perform a regular deep conditioning treatment! A mixture of 4 tablespoons of conditioner and 3 tablespoons of cold pressed virgin Coconut Oil from Merit VCO works wonders for me! My hair feels so much healthier afterwards, and since using it, it’s almost dandruff-free! I simply work it into my hair when damp, towel wrap, and leave to work its magic for around 2 hours, before rinsing. I treat my hair to this ‘healing session’ every other week, although it would be even more beneficial to do so weekly. Depending on the extent of damage, you might even want to skip the conditioner, applying only Coconut Oil.

Since discovering Aloe vera gel and coconut oil I have not looked back. I really recommend giving it a go. I hope you are amazed as I was how easy it is to have good looking hair without spending a fortune.

Cheap Clip in Hair Extensions

Tracey said...

My friends persuaded me to get hair extensions. In about three months, I felt that the roots of my hair hurt. Moreover, my hair got very thin. I decided to get rid of this new look. When hair extensions got finally removed, I noticed that my own hair looked like a total mess; most of it was covered with split ends, looked very sparse and receding. My hair stylist recommended a dietary supplement product called Hairgain formula (90 capsules) by Military Grade Nutritionals. After using it for approximately 4 months, my hair condition significantly improved. My hair started to look healthier, and individual hairs looked much thicker than they did before. I even started considering doing the extensions again. Highly recommended product, guys.

You also want to choose a salon that is in close proximity to you. A long drive or commute just adds more expense and you will probably not go there as often as you would like to. Also, you should make sure that the salon offers all of the services that you want as this will also save you time and money. Would you like to have a waxing service or a spray tan on the same visit as your hair appointment .

These tips are great. I can personally say that allowing the natural oils out of the hair will keep it healthy and smooth. Also I was surprised to find out that actually brushing your hair improves circulation for a healthier glow. I'll be sure to keep these tips in mind next time I'm washing my hair.
