I've recently had some questions about my hair / hair care routine. My hair has always been a point of contention for me. It never wants to do what I want it to. I'm sure most of us have that issue! I always feel like I look a mess- so, I would like to thank all of you for your kind comments about my current 'do.
While my hair can be a bit cranky with me, I do have to say it's been the healthiest it's been in years.
* I only wash my hair once a week. The hubs thinks this is weird, but it is healthier for your hair to wash it less. I do use a chamomile flower dry shampoo on my bangs if they start to look a bit shiny.
* I never ever use a brush on my hair. After I wash my hair I use a wide tooth comb and gently comb through. Then I air dry. Except for my bangs - I do blow dry them to keep them straight but, I generally only need to do that once a week. And, after that initial comb through I really don't comb my hair the rest of the week either.
My hair is really funny in that the first couple of days after I wash it it's really wavy and by the end of the week it's straight, the waves just fall out. I have tried curling my hair or trying to get the waviness to stay, but it just won't hold! I guess it's the washing that makes it wavy?
I used to blow dry my hair straight - but I've been doing really well avoiding this as it's not the best thing for your hair and it strips away shine.
* For product, I use Hamadi Ginger Soy wash, but I was in a pinch the last time I needed shampoo and since we just happened to be at Target I bought a bottle of Yes to Carrots - hair wash, that is actually quite nice. For conditioner I use the Hamadi Shea leave-in that I apply to my hair when it is slightly damp, and also use to tame fly-aways and such. It is also super for preventing split ends if you add a little bit each day to the ends of you hair.
What's your hair care routine?
