My entire life I have receive many compliments and questions on my hair, especially within this last year they increased like crazy. Therefore, I finally decided to write all about it and the process & products I use.
I will say, I’ve been blessed with a good head of hair (it’s in my genes) but even so, there are a lot of things you can do to treat it and keep your hair happy and healthy. I’ve decide to share all of my tips that I use on my own hair. Also, products that I’ve been loving to help keep my hair strong, silky, and soft everyday!
First things first, I’ve never dyed my hair once. It’s au natural, haha. To help you understand where I’m coming from for taking my tips and the products I recommend into account, my hair is naturally thick, yet fine, and super straight. I just want to let you know that these products and tips may work out great for you but I can’t guarantee that what these products did for my hair will do the same to yours. Just being honest. Just like any recommendation you may receive from a friend it may not work the exact same for you because their opinion is coming from a different head of hair.
For those of you wondering how often I wash my hair, it varies based on the week and what products I’ve put in my hair. Typically, I would say I wash it every 2-3 days on any given week, so practically every other day. For more on Why I Don’t Wash My Hair Everyday & How You Can Too I wrote a blog post all about it that will be posted this Thursday!
If you didn’t notice at first glance in the picture I have quite long hair, and I have had long hair my whole life. Therefore, in order for me to maintain my long length I get my hair cut at a hair salon I trust three times a year. Each time I go, I usually take off 3-4 inches in length. I know that sounds like crazy and a lot of hair getting chopped off, but that’s what I’m used to (and my friends don’t even notice the length change).
Products I Use: Shower
》Pantene Shampoo: Beautiful Lengths
》Herbal Essences Moisturizing Conditioner – Bonus: it smells like a tropical vacation
》Aussie 3 Minute Miracle – This one is a GAME CHANGER. They weren’t kidding by calling it a miracle. This product is key in helping my hair become nice and silky smooth. I notice an instant difference in the texture of my hair right after I rinse it out.
》Unite 7 Seconds – ANY leave-in conditioner works, I’ve also used and recommend It’s a 10 Leave-In Conditioner. I lightly spray this on the bottom half of my hair once I’ve gently dried my hair with a towel.
Products I Use: During the Day (only when needed of course)
》Tresemme Heat Tamer – I typically will use this for when I decide to straighten or curl my hair on any given day that I haven’t just used a leave-in conditioner that already has heat tamer in it (there’s no need to overdue it).
》Batiste Dry Shampoo – the BEST dry shampoo I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot. I use this on those days when I don’t take a shower(every other day). I personally purchase the Medium Brown Tinted one so the typical white powder doesn’t show in my scalp since I have darker roots.
Overall, I really hope this helped you out, gave you some tips, and new products that you may want to try out on your hair. I would love to hear from you if you use any of my suggestions or pick up these products.
xoxo, Jasmine Grace
