Blogmas Day 21: My Hair Care


Today I'm going to share with you my hair care routine. I have medium/long hair...it's currently that awkward length in-between. My hair color is a dark brown and I haven't dyed my hair since I was a junior in high school. My hair is thick and has a course texture that tangles easily. It has a slight wave to it. For my hair I tend to use products that add moisture and that help detangle the bird's nest I have on top of my head on a daily basis.




In the Shower 

In the shower I focus on adding a lot of moisture to my course hair. For shampoo I use L'Oreal Paris EverCreme Intense Shampoo. This stuff is super amazing at adding moisture to brittle, dry hair! Instead of using a normal conditioner I use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. I let this sit in my hair for 3-5 minutes before I wash it out. On certain days I feel like I need a deeper moisturizing treatment and I reach for OGX Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intensive Masque. This stuff works wonders on my hair! I usually use this on my hair on nights when I am taking a bath so I can leave it in my hair for 20 to 30 minutes and then wash it out using cool water. Washing your conditioner out with cool or cold water will leave your hair nice and shiny.


After the Shower

After I get out of the shower I wrap my hair up in a towel for anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes. During this time I will do my Morning or Night Time Skincare Routine depending on when I take my shower. After my hair has been up in a towel for 10 minutes I will take it down. My hair is usually just damp at this point and a mess of knots and tangles. The first thing I use on my tangled hair is Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture and Shine Leave-In Conditioner. I spritz this throughout my hair. I then add It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin. Instead of spraying this directly onto my hair I spray it onto the palms of my hands 5 times. I then work the cream throughout my hair, avoiding the root area. Then using my brush (a knock off of tangle teezer I picked up at TJ Maxx) I brush all the knots and tangles out of my hair. Once my hair is tangle free I apply a small of OGX Hydrating Macadamia Penetrating Oil to just the ends of my hair. Usually I let my hair air dry because I do not like using heat on my hair unless necessary.

For Days Between Washes

I don't wash my hair everyday. Usually I wash it every other day, sometimes every 3 days if my hair can handle a day up in a messy bun and I have nowhere important to be. The dry shampoo I reach for on the days in-between washes is Dove Dry Shampoo. This stuff goes on clear so you don't have to worry about any left over residue. This dry shampoo not only cleans my hair but also adds some volume to my roots.
