What is your har routine like? What shampoo/conditioner/products do you use? Do you use foam or hot rollers and how often do you roll your hair? Do you get a hair cut each month? Thank you xx
Alright, here it is. Sorry this post took me a bit to answer, but I wanted to be as thorough as requested, and I NEVER change my routine so it should give you a pretty accurate detail of my rituals.
First off, I stopped dying my hair 2 years ago, my color today is 100% mine root to tip, and that certainly helps.
I only wash my hair twice a week to keep from stripping natural oils out, after a bit, your hair WILL step in line and stop over producing bad oils from over-washing.
On those in between wash days, if my hair (particularly my bang area) feels oily, i’ll use a dry shampoo spray on the roots, brush it in, and its instantly cured.
When I do wash my hair I use Organix Awapuhi Ginger shampoo and conditioner. I love this shit. So much. It leaves my hair so damn soft, every time… It should be noted that I’m hella generous with the conditioner, and I let it sooooak, don’t wash it out too soon.
After my shower I towel dry my hair till its just damp, then run Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Serum focusing on the ends and working about half way up my hair, just a dime size will do wonders to keeping my ends soft.
Next (again while still slightly damp) I’ll work a dime sized amount of KEVINMURPHY Anti.Gravity Volumizer through my roots, focusing on my bang area.
Then I blowdry my hair, forcing my roots up by my crown and the rest angled down, ON THE COLDEST SETTING. I never ever ever blow-dry using heat.
I usually let my hair settle an hour or two, just to be sure its 100% dry and happy, then I’ll throw in hot rollers, and LET THEM SIT FOR AS LONG AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Wait till they’re cool, then wait some more.
Once I take them out and brush them into the shape they want to go that day, I set it with Paul Mitchell hairspray, which doesn’t clump or feel sticky or turn my hair crispy or solid, it holds shape and keeps A LOT of movement, which is important to me. … I wouldn’t recommend the spray I have pictured though, I’m currently using it due to a boyfriend shopping error and it has an odd smell I’m not fond of. I recommend Paul Mitchell Worked Up Hairspray, its my absolute favorite, and can’t wait to have it back when this runs out.
I use rollers twice a week, correlating with wash days, and style my hair a touch differently each day as my curls fall and relax.
I cut my hair every couple months, I WISH I could trim it more, but I never get around to it.
Hope this helps!!!!!! I’m no beautician, but this works wonders for me, soft healthy hair is an obsession of mine. :)
