The Hair Care Edit

November 1, 2016

Hola! Today I thought I'd share with you my hair care routine. I probably don't take care of my hair as much as I should but I do make it a habit to do these few things:

Color: My colorist is amazing! I don't know the exact details of what she does on me other than its a balayage/ombre fusion and I love it! For more information on my colorist, message me on the blog's Facebook page.

Wash: I'm not very picky with what shampoo/conditioner I use. I used to love the Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Shampoo & Conditioner but I haven't seen it in stores for a while. I do make it a habit to use purple shampoo and conditioner at least once a weak to keep my hair from looking brassy. This makes a huge difference in my hair color! I enjoy using the Clairol Shimmer Lights set. Every once in a while I also use a hair mask for deep repair, like Macadamia Natural Oil's Deep Repair Masque

Detangle: The longer my hair gets, the more tangled it gets too! To help me deal with this tangled mess I use It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product. It is by far the best detangler I have ever used and its also a heat protectant. The downside: it's so expensive! I still haven't found any other leave-in conditioner that works as well for a cheaper price and trust me I've looked. As soon as I find one I'll let you know! 

Style: On most days, after I wash my hair and detangle it, I use Bumble and bumble's Don't Blow It for it to dry without frizz and perfect air-dried texture. After its almost 3/4 of the way dry, I braid it into a french braid to achieve natural curls. Its so easy to do!  On days when I want more structured curls like the ones in the photo above, I use the 1-1 ½ Inch Remington T|Studio Salon Collection Pearl Digital Ceramic Curling Wand. Another full post on how I curl my hair to follow! 

I hope you find these few tips helpful! Let me know if there's anything you think I should add to my routine!
