We all have our “thing.” My hair is mine. It’s my signature and security blanket all rolled up into one. My hair is hip grazing long! For it to be so means it needs to be strong and healthy. Today, I’m sharing my favorite tips when it comes to taking care of my hair.
Use the right shampoo for your hair. My hair is thick, but the strands themselves are actually thin. I just have a lot of hair follicles in my scalp. I almost always use a volumizing shampoo to give my hair the boost it needs. I love the Pantene Sheer Volume collection! My hair is long, so I like to balance it with body. The weight of my hair can weigh my roots down. If your hair is dry or damaged make sure you use nourishing products.
I love the Pantene Pro-V Sheer Volume Collection for my hair. It preps hair for an amplified look inspired by collagen, and is perfect for women who want full-bodied, thick hair. The products reinforce hair’s structure for a full, healthy look that lasts for up to 24 hours. It also helps keep my hair thick from root to tip.
Condition your hair. I use a lot of conditioner. I’m talking almost a palm full worth! I always start at my ends and work my way up. This helps keep my hair in tip-top shape.
Sleep in a loose bun on top of your head. I always sleep with my hair on top of my head. I find this keeps my hair’s body. Sometimes I lay it flat above my head, but I’m too crazy of a sleeper to lay on my back all night long. I know this is totally 90s but always use a scrunchie if you need to use a hairtie. It’s much gentler on your hair. Generally, I don’t use anything to hold it in place unless it’s being a little stubborn.
Use an alcohol-free hairspray. The Pantene Pro-V Airspray Strong Hold Hairspray is lightweight but has great hold. I don’t like using alcohol based hairsprays because it can be drying. Always nourish your hair.
After having Pax, I started having fly aways around my hair line. A quick spritz keeps everything where it should be. If you want to add volume flip your hair upside down and spray. I also like to spray under the roots while my part is laying in the opposite direction. I do this in sections all over my head.
Don’t wash your hair every day. Try to go as long as you can without washing. Use some dry shampoo if you need to. I generally wash my hair every 3 days but have been known to push it to 8. Try not to touch your roots with your hands as much as possible to help keep control oils.
Use a t-shirt to dry your hair instead of a towel. This one might annoy my husband but we can buy new shirts. Cotton shirts are much gentler on your hair than heavy towels.
Air dry your hair. Wait until it’s about 80 percent dry before blowdrying, but if you have coarse, curly hair wait till about almost 50 percent to prevent frizz. Also, you can blow dry it very quickly out of the shower just to get rid of the excess water if you’re in a pinch. Then, let it air dry till it’s 80 percent dry. I generally brush my teeth and do my makeup during this time. If it’s a school morning I make coffee, pack lunches, and load backpacks during this time. Let’s face it – makeup is always a maybe before drop off.
Do you do any of these tips?!
