Since cutting five inches off my hair, (I am acting so dramatic, it’s really not that short) I am trying to make sure it stays as healthy as possible. I was started to get a bunch of split ends which was the reason for cutting in the first place ––I know, not cute.
At my appointment last week, my hair dresser recommended I try and only wash my hair every third day and limit the amount of heat styling. For someone who has curly/frizzy hair and works out five days a week, this task is harder than you would think. Keep scrolling for the products I have been using that are saving my hair!
IN THE SHOWER
SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER: I have actually been wanting to switch to an all natural regimen, but I haven’t found one that I love just yet. If you know of any good natural brands, I am all ears! My absolute favorite is this Kérastase Nutritive Shampoo and Conditioner. I have been using ti for years and it really locks in the moisture without leaving your hair feeling greasy.
OUT OF THE SHOWER
After I get out of the shower I use this towel to dry my hair. My mom actually got it for me because she said it helps with breakage and also, dries your hair faster than a normal towel. After I soak up most of the moisture, I use a wide tooth comb and this blow dry primer and heat protector.
HAIRDRYER: This hairdryer was a game changer for me. My entire life I used inexpensive ones that would constantly break (and were probably breaking my hair, too). I bought this one a few years ago and I will never turn back. My hair texture is pretty frizzy/curly so I blow dry in sections and it takes me about 8 minutes total.
CURLING IRON: I use the T3 Curling Iron with either a 1 inch barrel or wand depending on the look I am going for at the moment. I know it is a little pricey, but honestly it is worth every penny. I can curl my entire head in less than 3 minutes.
NEXT DAY HAIR
My hair tends to have good texture on day 1, so I opt out of using a ton of products because it ends up just weighing it down. However, on Day 2 and 3, it needs a little extra love.
DRY SHAMPOO: This has been a game changer before and after workouts. I have been using the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam and I love it because it doesn’t leave your hair feeling dirty. I have also used the Living Proof Dry Shampoo in the past and love it, too!
BODY BUILDER: I recently starting using the Living Proof Body Builder to give my hair a little extra texture and volume on the next day. I spray it in two sections and then run the brush over for a fresh look.
