Love Is In The Hair

My Tips for Healthy Hair

So, this topic was requested by many of you and it’s something I’ve been wanting to talk about on my blog for awhile now! I’ve gotten asked quite often how I kept my hair healthy while growing it out. Here are some of my tips and tricks: (PSA: these are just the things that worked for me)

  1. Limit your washings as much as you can (I do every other day usually)
  2. Get a trim every other month
  3. Get a deep conditioning treatment 3–4 times a year
  4. Use an oil on the ends of your after you shower (my favorite is Moroccan oil)
  5. For the first 9–12 months of trying to grow my hair, I used this shampoo and conditioner
  6. Let it air dry as much as possible
  7. Apply heat (style it) once or twice a week: give it a break sometimes!

 

How I Style my Hair

  1. After showering, I apply the oil that I mentioned above on the ends of my damp hair
  2. Once my hair air dries for 45 mins or so, I blow dry it with the same type of dryer I have been using for 14 years now
  3. If I’m curling it, I don’t blow dry it perfectly straight because I like my hair to have a lot of volume
  4. I use this curling iron and typically remove the clamp and use it as a wand
  5. Depending on your part, I curl inward on the side with less hair and outward on the side with more hair
  6. To finish it off, I spray my hair with Moroccan hairspray
  7. When straightening my hair, I section it into two-three layers and leave the top part of my hair not perfectly straight so it doesn’t get flat (my straightener)
  8. I finish by spraying my hair with Oribe (my absolute favorite volume spray ever — it’s the best!)

Thanks for reading and I hope these tips work for you! Always feel free to message me if you have any other questions. If you liked this post, leave a comment and I will write more about beauty tips.
