Healthy Hair Care

Happy Hump Dayyyyy! Today we're talking hair care. The worst decision I ever made for my hair was getting extensions senior year of college. Although I only had them for 3 months, it has taken almost 2 years to get my hair back to normal again. They not only ripped out & stripped my hair severely damaging it, they also majorly thinned it out. I was determined to find a way to revive my hair.  Here's how I did it:




I love love love all the products made by Organix. Within the first couple of washes with this brand I could feel the start of an improvement in the way my hair felt. A helpful tip: its good to switch up what you wash your hair because your hair gets used to the products. This minimizes the positives its done for you. I currently am using to their coconut milk line but I've tried several of their different lines and loved them all. (plus their products are safe to use my color treated hair!)





 Most people do (or should) take vitamins to keep their body healthy. Biotin is a vitamin specifically meant for your hair and nails. It strengthens your hair follicles and encourages new growth. After about 4-6 months of taking Biotin every day, I noticed the roots and new growth of my hair was fuller and stronger. 





 I've used both moroccan oil and argan oil on my damp hair before styling it. While I had great results with both, I tend to use this argan oil spray more.  I simply spray it on my damp hair (about 3-4 times in different spots) prior to styling. This adds extra shine and also protects it from heat damage.





 Its good to give your hair a break from constant heat from blow drying, straightening, and curling. Unfortunately for me, I have very curly & frizzy hair. Letting it air dry usually results in an unruly afro (lol). Fekkai summer hair beach waves is the only product i've found that styles my hair in a pretty beach wavy look in a weightless effortless way. I even use it in the summer when at the beach or lounging by the pool so my hair still looks good after a dip in the pool/lake/ocean. 





Coconut oil is great for revitalizing your hair and skin. At least once a month, if not twice, I deep condition my hair naturally with it. At first, since the damage to my hair was so bad, I would wash my hair with shampoo, then instead of using conditioner I would use coconut oil, put a shower cap over my hair and sleep with it in all night. Then in the morning wash it out with a little bit of shampoo (still not putting any conditioner in my hair). Now, I will put the coconut oil in, sit with it wrapped in a shower cap for about 45-60 minutes and then rinse it out with a little bit of shampoo. Your hair will feel silky smooth after this natural deep conditioning treatment. 




Did you know that if you use a regular hair brush after you get out of the shower on your wet hair, you are actually causing damage and breaking your hair? I recently found this out and was shocked. I was never a fan of wide toothed combs so being introduced to the wetbrush was a life savor. The way it is designed is to act like a wide toothed comb in the body of a brush. Its a miracle worker at detangling hair without causing damage. I even take a mini one around with me to the pool and the beach for detangling purposes. 


Hope my hair care tips help you bring your hair back to life!
