I am very low maintenance when it comes to my hair. Somehow it seems to be the question people ask me the most-“How do you get your hair like that“?
I have a few secrets I would like to share with you that have worked for me.
Let me just start with, my hair did not grow like this overnight. I was actually traumatized in the 7th grade with a boy haircut and vowed never to cut my hair short again.
These are some tricks I have learned along the way from trial and error.
- Shampoo the scalp, condition from the ears down. Doing this ensures you don’t have that oily scalp look while the rest of your hair is nice and moisturized.
- Dry shampoo is your best friend. Try to go a few days without washing your hair and use a dry shampoo instead. This will allow for the natural oils to condition your hair longer, leaving healthier hair. Also, you will get some nice volume when you use a good dry shampoo.
- When you wash your hair don’t put your scalp under hot water. It will make more hair fall out.
- Brush your hair. It’s really important especially if you want to keep it long. Tangles are easy to come but hard to go.
- Wear the look a few days. I start day 1 with tight curls, day 2 beach waves, day 3 hair half up, and day 4 messy bun. It ensures less heat damage if you wear the look out longer, especially if you’re using a good dry shampoo.
- You don’t need fancy hair masks. They are nice, but argan oil does the job just as good at a fraction of the cost. Apply the oil from the nape of the neck down to the hair tips.
Hair products I do use religiously…
- Head & Shoulders Volumizing (it has purple on the packaging)
- Bumble & Bumble Hair Oil (it has pink packaging) Sometimes you can find it at TJ Maxx or Marshalls at a fraction of the cost
- Batisse dry Shampoo. I’ve been using it for years, and every time I venture out to try a new dry shampoo I always seem to come back to this brand.
Let me know your favorite dry shampoo! I am always in the market for a good one at a great price.
