Shampoo and conditioner:
As you know, I try to be frugal! If I can get a good product for cheap, I will get it! This does not apply to buying shampoo and conditioner, you really really DO get what you pay for!! I always look for a shampoo/conditioner that is free of: sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors and has some sort of moistening element in it like an oil or something! At least look for something without some of those ingredients because they are all really bad things to be putting on your hair. Lately I've been loving Hask Macadamia Oil Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and it follows all of my little guidelines :) I really love how this combo makes my hair super soft and it smells amazing!! I used their deep conditioner, too, left it on for 30 minutes and my hair felt like heaven!! Something that also helps but is kind of hard to do in a nice warm shower is rinsing my hair in cold water. Basically hot water opens the hair cuticle which is good before you use product and cold water closes the cuticle to keep that moisturizing stuff in there! So if you can handle ending with some chilly water, your hair will LOVE you!
I usually will curl my hair one day and not touch it until I wash my hair again! I know not everyone's hair holds curls very well, so if yours does not, just try to touch it up here and there if you have to! The less heat, the better as I'm sure you already know. I use Sexy Hair Style Sexy Hair 450 Degree Protect Heat Defense for my heat spray and I like that it keeps my hair protected and adds some shine. Plus, a little goes a long way so these bottles last me about a year!
After shower products:
This is almost as important as using good shampoo and conditioner! I absolutely love it's a 10 products! I use the it's a 10 miracle leave in product after I shower and it really makes a world of difference. I always use that an an oil! I've been using the Hask Macadamia Shine Oil Treatment and using these two products after I shower is honestly amazing! I notice when I don't use these (which is very rare) my hair isn't as soft as usual, these products really do make a big difference!!
Vitamins + Water:
I've been taking prenatal vitamins and it not only is good for baby but amazing for hair!! Prenatal's have soooo many essential nutrients that are so good for hair and help promote growth! I also drink TONS of water. Our bodies are 60-80% water so clearly we need it, and it is proven to help hair grow faster and free!!
Those are just a few things that I do and so far it is working!! I also do hair masks once a week with a different deep conditioner, Hask has an awesome deep conditioner and I also switch between this and this one, and even coconut oil is super cheap and amazing! .
