I get a lot of requests on hair care! I thought I would put pen to paper and let you know my hair care routine. It is actually relatively simple… because hey just like everyone else I am super busy! FYI: I have long hair and do not have extensions. My hair is naturally wavy… fine but a lot of it. Please note this post may contain affiliate links.
Simple Hair Care
First of all, I get my hair trimmed about every 6-8 weeks. I don’t color my hair so that helps prevent a good amount of damage. I usually cut about an inch off every time. When I have short hair I HAVE to go every 4-5 weeks or the length becomes “awkward”…. this is one of the reasons I keep my hair long… less maintenence.
Wash, wash, wash
I wash my hair about 2-3 times per week. If I don’t have events or photos I try to stretch washing my hair to every four days but that usually only happens about once a month. Another big thing is I let my hair air dry most of the time. Unless I am in a major rush I wash my hair in the evenings and let it dry overnight. It can end up a little crazy but it is easily fixable. If you have really crazy hair sleep in a loose braid and that can help keep it in control.
In the mornings I add a little dry shampoo and the blow dry anything the is still wet and round brush the roots on the top of my head. I feel like this really activates the dry shampoo which means my hair stays cleaner longer AND it helps give my hair a little volume. Fun Fact: usually I curl my hair with a straightener.I feel like it last longer so in the long run I use less heat. Also, I only use hairspray on special occasions but I do love this one.
Digging my Dyson
I have used the brush attachment for my Dyson and straightened my hair after sleeping on it and it did really well! So that is a quick option for me I just prefer my hair curled. I also like the dyson curl attachment BUT it requires hair to be damp so I have to have more time when I want to do it that way. That style can give me big bouncy curls that I love!
Back to my hair care routine… once every week to two weeks I like to do a deep condition. I wet my dirty hair a bit and slather on a ton of conditioner or hair mask and wrap in a towel or braid it and let sit for about twenty mins. Then I shower as normal with shampoo and condition.
Below are all of my favorite hair care products. I also love this towel for speeding up drying time. I do use a heat protectant and a frizz control spray all linked below!
