We all have favorite hair products, we all have our own hair routines, but then to look in the mirror and see frizzy, damaged or dry hair is really upsetting. There is many different things that can damage or dry out hair, from hair treatments, dying, heating tools etc.. I know for many years i hated my hair, it was dry, damaged, frizzy and anything else you can think of. Now we have to be realistic, it will never be “perfect”, we are human and hair is hair, but after much trial and error i have learned why we get bad results, even after putting many hours and many products into it.
First off, I want to talk hair masks. Let me tell you, natural hair masks are great! Only use natural or organic ingredients such as coconut oil, avocado, olive oil or special hair oils. Even fruit such as bananas are great. Play around with them and have fun seeing what is best for your hair type. Try to do a hair mask once a week or at least every 2 weeks. Now as much as I believe in the power of them, they are not the key to success, they are just a start.
The big change to your hair is the hair products you use, from shampoo and condition and the after wash products. Now just because the shampoo is expensive or the bottle tells you it will “soften your hair or take frizz away” does not mean you can trust it! I have tried many different shampoo and conditioners from all different stores, some expensive and some cheaper. But at the end of the day the price really means nothing. You have to look at the ingredients! Look for shampoos and conditioners that are organic or all natural ingredients, have no sulfates or harsh ingredients and have great natural oils. Most stores (even grocery stores) have a section for natural and organic beauty products. Take a few minutes, read the front and back of bottles and look for the key things mentioned above. Another great thing is most the organic products i have found are non animal tested! Make sure to only buy cruelty free products.
If you’re worried about price, don’t be. Most all the products I buy are not any more expensive than the “known” name products and in the long run it will save you a lot of damage control money.
After you switch, watch and see how your hair changes! Your hair will be able to breath naturally without all the harsh chemicals.
