Hair Care Routine
Good hair, to my mind, is due to three things.
Number 1: Genetics. Unfortunately, we are all given a certain kind of hair texture and hair thickness at birth. Some of us are blessed with thick, shiny, beautiful tresses (think Disney Princess hair) but most of us are not so lucky. But don’t be sad! If you weren’t born with the hair you wish you were, we can always improve our circumstances!! See number 2 and number 3 below! And besides, I bet even Princess Jasmine and Ariel have a bad hair day once in a while!
Number 2: Diet. It’s so important to eat a well balanced diet to maintain healthy hair. We all know this, but it’s easy to fall into the trap of eating fast food or whatever is handy at time. Eating a diet that is full of fresh fruits and vegetables is essential. For healthy skin, hair, and good health in general, diet plays a very important role. You are what you eat you know.
Number 3: Hair Care.
Keep in mind that my hair is naturally very straight so it’s possible that some of these may not work as well for people with different hair textures! I can say though, that since using these products, my hair is much more manageable, softer, and has fewer split ends.
1.) CHI Keratin Mist : $13.99
I spray this product all over my hair, concentrating it at the roots and the ends when after I just washed it and towel dried it. Great for repairing damage, minimizing split ends, and encouraging hair growth.
2.) Biosilk Silk Therapy: various prices
Ok, I know this is really, really expensive, but there are smaller bottles you can buy that are much cheaper if you want to try it out before you make such an expensive purchase. Quite simply, I find this product amazing. It literally changes the quality of my hair to make it silky as well, silk! I have very long hair and all I need is just a dime size amount of it for my hair. This bottle will last you an extremely long time! If you feel like splurging or if you have extremely damaged hair, I really recommend this!
3.) Nexxus Heat PROTEXX Heat Protection : $11.99
This product works best for me if I let my hair towel dry for a couple minutes and then spray it liberally all over. For anyone with color treated hair, especially blonds, please please make sure to use a heat protectant before you use any kind of heat on your hair. Often people will use it when they use a straightener or curling iron but using a hair dryer is just as damaging, especially if you do it every day.
4.) CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray : $13.99
This is a heat protectant to use when your hair is already dry. I use this when I’m going to curl or use some type of heating tool on hair. And I think it smells great too.
Over the break, I’m going to be trying out some homemade remedies soon for both the skin and hair, so I’ll let you know how they go for me!
Hope this helps and happy holidays everyone!
