I had a couple of requests to do a post on what I use in my hair, so your wish is my command! My hair care routine is pretty basic, no secret tricks here! The most important thing about hair care and your overall health is good nutrition and adequate water intake. I try to eat well (most of the time) and I only drink water (besides my morning coffee which I drink black). I also take a multivitamin every day and a Biotin supplement. The Biotin supplement has really made a difference in my hair and nails. When I first moved to Chicago I felt like my hair was falling out! But after starting the Biotin, I've found that I'm losing A LOT less hair in the shower and my hair feels healthier. My nails also grow a lot faster now and are much stronger.
Ok, now onto what I use in my hair......
2) Tresemme Anti-Breakage conditioner - LOVE this stuff! Makes my hair so soft and I have noticed a reduction in split ends since I started using it.
3) Moroccan Oil - I can't say enough about this stuff! Smells amazing and cuts down on drying time. Also, a little goes a long way, I use only a nickle-sized amount for my whole head. Makes hair soft and shiny.
4) Got 2B CrazySleek - I alternate this with the Moroccan Oil. It makes my hair very easy to straighten.
5) Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - I use this as a hair mask once a week. I apply it to my whole head, pile my hair up on my head and put a shower cap on to trap the heat in. I usually leave it on for 30-40 minutes and then wash it out. Makes hair very soft.
I should also mention that I only wash my hair every 3 days so that I don't strip it of its natural oil. I also let my hair air dry after I wash it and only heat style it twice a week.
Does anyone have any special tricks or tips for keeping hair soft and shiny?
