Since beginning my Blog & Instagram journey, the #1 question I have gotten is how I was able to grow my hair this long. Well, I am finally going to spill the deets: I am sharing my TOP 3 TIPS ! (& No, they are not wash your hair everyday & trim regularly). At the end of the post, I have a shared a "Shoppable" collage of my most used hair care products!
1. WASH ONCE A WEEK. Yes, you read right. I only wash my hair once a week! When I tell people this they say, Oh I could never do that, my hair is too greasy! Well I was the same way. It will take a month or so for your hair to adjust to the infrequent washes and will be even less greasy than before when you were washing every/every other day. I get by with dry shampoo (Batiste, ONLY) & with various up-dos and hats! I also use HAIR OIL for my ends, to keep them more in tact! The oil that will nourish your hair is far better than any shampoo or conditioner out there! Take the plunge, and wash less (hair). HA!
2. MINIMAL HEAT. When I do wash my hair, I only blowdry tht top half of my head. My hair is naturaly wavy,so if i go completely air dry, the top half would look funky. Drying this portion of my hair takes 5-10 minutes. I hardly everrrrr use a curling iron or straightener (I don't even know where my straightener is). How I get my beach waves/curls: After blow drying top half of hair, I gather al my hairat the top of my head as if I was starting to make a ponytail. Instead of tying it up, I TWIST my hair (all except the last two inches) & wrap into a bun. I use "creaseless" ponytail holders for a seamless effect once I am ready to take my hair down!
3. SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER FIT. Finding the right shampoo and conditioner is hard, becasue everyone's hair is different! For me, even when I find a shampoo/conditioner combo that I love, after a few months I have to switch it up becasue I feel as if my hair gets "used to it" and doesnt work as well! The shampoo & conditioner that I am currently loving is Monat! It has made my hair SOOO strong! It has also made it grow consideany , plus it is very luxurious! I get mine from my girl Amy Oliver! Her Instagram handle is: @27aaoliver !! She helped me with all questions throughout the process of starting my new hair care regimen!
