A LOT of you have been asking what I do to keep my hair glossy, silky and long, so I’ve decided to let you in on my secrets to healthy and strong hair! All the advice I’ve given is from my personal experience.
GET YOUR HAIR NICE AND DIRTY
This is such a simple tip, but I live by it. Washing your hair too often is really damaging, so sometimes it’s best to let your natural oils condition your hair. I normally leave my hair dirty for about 3-4 days before washing it. The key to not looking completely grubby and greasy? Dry Shampoo! Spritz your hair morning and night to keep it fresh and hold out as long as you can on washing your hair. I swear my hair is 10 times softer when I wait a couple of days to wash it!
OGX SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
I’m obsessed with these cruelty-free luxury OGX products because I visibly saw a difference in my hair when I switched to their products. The coconut milk conditioner is how I maintain the hydration in my hair. The ends of my hair are pretty damaged and dry, but the conditioner really helps with that. I use the argan oil shampoo for ultimate silky and smoothness. When I leave my hair to dry naturally, it looks so healthy and bouncy (I have natural waves). When I left my hair to dry before these products, I looked like a crazy barbarian. I picked these up from Priceline.
BRUSH YOUR HAIR TWICE A DAY
Well duh … this tip seems obvious?! But a lot of people just do not brush their hair and it’s really damaging. Keeping your hair tangle free helps with breakage and makes your hair a lot stronger. I am a religious hair-brusher.
PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM HEAT
It’s really bad because I always forget to do this, but you should definitely invest in a heat protector spray if you’re always straightening/curling your hair like me. The one I use is the GHD Heat Protect Spray.
HEllO HAIR HYDRATION MASK
So I’ve been following @ohhellohair on Instagram for a while and have always wanted to try their products. I’m not normally one to use a hair mask (mainly because I can’t be bothered) but Hello Hair is seriously worth it. I’ve also received really good feedback from friends that have used it as well. After using the hair mask twice, my hair is SERIOUSLY hydrated. The hair mask really compliments my shampoo and conditioner, leaving my hair extra silky and shiny. The one I have is the botanic edition, and it smells amazing. You really notice the difference after you’ve washed, dried and styled your hair. Hello Hair are also vegan and cruelty-free!
TRICHOVEDIC HAIR WISDOM GLOSSING SERUM
Ahhhh yes. This is one of my favourite products and is the ULTIMATE glossy hair secret. I originally stole it from my mum and was blown away at how crazy shiny my hair was! After straightening my hair, I run the serum through my hair, focusing on my dry ends. You can get Trichovedic at most salons and hair care shops.
Coconut Oil will always be my go-to product for hair and skin. Sometimes I put it through my dry ends and let it soak for 30 minutes before washing it out.
