How to achieve beautiful hair!

So, pretty much anyone who knows me knows that I love healthy hair. If my hair ever becomes unhealthy; I get it chopped off!

So, on that note; I will tell you my secrets targeted at keeping my hair healthy and feeling great!

It took me a long time to find a great shampoo and conditioner. I use Garnier Fructis. I have tried all kinds of different shampoos and I have found that this one doesn’t stress my hair the way others do. I highly recommend following your gut on your shampoo and conditioner. You know when your hair feels great! Use the shampoo that makes it feel that way all the time. I don’t believe in spending tons of money on your hair care products.

The next step is do *not* wash your hair everyday. Let the natural oils build up. If you have a naturally oily scalp and think; OMG I can’t do without washing my hair! You can use water to rinse your hair just don’t use the shampoo. Also, to freshen your hair, use baby powder.

On your shampoo days find a leave in conditioner that works for you. After you have cleaned and conditioned your hair, before you get out of the shower, take that leave in conditioner and put in your hair. Sometimes I take a little water and help it run thru my strands. This is good to use while you are still in the shower because the hair follicles are still open.

Then when you get out of the shower, don’t twist up your hair. Take the towel and gently wrap it around your hair. Let you hair naturally lay. Your hair is the most vulnerable when it is wet.

I hope this helps you when taking care of your hair everyday! Sometimes it is trial and error when playing with our hair. And if you have hair that is unhealthy, do *not* be afraid to get it cut. It will feel much better if you take care of it!
