Hi, you guys! something I have been doing a lot of this summer, is focusing on keeping my hair and skin extra healthy, and giving them a lot more attention than I feel like I did all school year! I have always been someone who washed their hair almost every single day – and using heat on it almost every day as well, and even though I knew that doing this wasn’t super healthy, I didn’t really know any alternatives! So, if you’re in the same boat as I have been in, and you’re washing your hair every day because you just don’t know what else to do – I am here to give you advice, and share my secrets on what I have been doing to my hair!
First of all, I am only washing my hair two times a week. I know that trying to transition to this from doing it everyday seems like such a stretch, but you just have to work your way up to it – which didn’t take me that long! I follow soooo many fashion bloggers on instagram – and in all their pictures their hair is full of volume, so well styled, and shiny! A lot of those ladies too have emphasized that their hair is this healthy and shines like it does because they only wash it two times a week. Even the girls who workout 3+ days a week, like myself, they can make it work!
The biggest key in washing my hair so much less has been finding the right dry shampoo for MY hair. Forever, I was using the same old dry shampoo that left a white cast on my dark hair, really didn’t give it any lift or volume, nor the “refreshed” look I was going for! After doing some research and watching from some beauty bloggers on youtube, I was able to get a better grasp on what dry shampoo might be best for my dark, naturally oily hair! I was so excited about this discovery you guys, once I found one after watching so many videos, I went to target right away because I wanted to try it out for myself! If you have hair like mine – you’ll enjoy the Pantene dry shampoo like I do, for an amazing hair refresh.
I also have started putting dry shampoo especially all around my scalp, before bed! This is supposed to help stop some of the oils from even getting to the top of your head, and then you’ll have to put less there in the morning!
I also recommend styling your hair with heat on the first day with your clean hair, and then try to only do touch ups on it the next couple days – this has really worked for me too! I typically wear my hair curled, but curling it everyday + blowdrying it some days can do a lot of damage and cause breakage and frizziness. My hair has felt so much better this summer, and seriously, it looks so much better, so much more full, and i know its healthier!
Do you have any healthy hair secrets?! I’d love to hear them.
Thanks for being here. love y’all! B
