Happy Friday loves!
With the sunny days approaching I wanted to share with you my best kept secret. I always get tons of compliments on my hair and so many people think it's all just fake (and proceed to stare at me in disbelief when I tell them it's actually my real hair and I do not wear extensions).
I take my hair care very seriously and I've gotten into the habit of doing a few little things that really have huge impact on how my hair looks and feels.
- Try to wash your hair as little as possible: it may vary for different types of hair but what works for me is once every 5 days. It will take some time for your hair to adjust and you could use dry shampoo in the meantime to extend the life of your blowout but you'll find that your hair will look healthier when it doesn't get stripped out of its natural oils every day. To that end I love using Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner: they provide a gentle cleansing while moisturizing with organ oil and other replenishing nutrients.
- Use a hair mask weekly: on top of my shampoo and conditioner I regularly apply the Intense Hydrating Mask to my hair once I'm done showering. This treatment improves texture, elasticity and shine. I'll leave it on and usually put a face mask on as well and rince both off at the same time after 10 minutes.
- Let your hair air dry: I always use hot tools to style my hair so I do what I can to avoid applying unnecessary heat. I usually wait for my hair to air dry before styling it with my flat iron and curing wand and always apply the Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream beforehand. This not only conditions, hydrates and tames frizzy hair but also provides an extra layer of protection to your hair before the styling.
- Try to chop off at least an inch every other month: this will make them grow faster and stronger and it will keep your haircut looking polished and fresh because all of the hair will be or the same length and your ends will look healthy and shiny.
Moroccanoil has an amazing range of hair products that perfectly adapt to everyone's needs. Not only they are super effective and make your hair feel amazing but they also smell great!
