How to take CARE of your HAIR!


Hi Beautiful lovers!
I get bombarded with emails about hair all the time so I decided to do a post on how you can take care of your luscious locks :) Here are 11 ways that can help:

  1.  Wash your hair every other day. Give your hair a day in the middle for your natural oils to soak in and do its duty. I actually love that day in the middle when I don't have to wash hehe.
  2. Brush your hair before you wash. It will be easier to brush out tangles after it's wet (wet hair is very sensitive). When brushing start from the bottom up and take your time being very gentle. In return there's less breakage and fall out. 
  3. Use a shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate and paraben free, there are tons of brands out there that you can chose from. These two chemicals are awful for the health of your hair! The one I love is Organix Coconut Milk. Also please remember to use conditioner after shampooing to ease in styling and control. I have met way too many girls that don't use conditioner and then complain about their hair being dull and unmanageable. 
  4. Keep switching up your part from the front to reduce thinning in just one area. I switch up my part all the time plus it gives my look a little change. Also try not to have your hair tied up tightly, this can cause major damage to your hair follicle which in return causes thinning!
  5. Trim your hair every few months to get rid of split ends, hair looks best right after a trim :)
  6. Air dry your hair as much as possible. Throughout the week, after I shower, I apply a dime size of Healthy Hair by Sexy Hair Argon Oil to control frizz to my hair and let it air-dry. I only take a hair dryer to my hair on weekends or special occasions. When using any heated tools, make sure to spray on a good heat protectant for minimal damage.
  7. Once a month massage and invigorate the scalp with coconut oil (or your fav oil) and spread throughout the hair for maximum shine and thickness. You can also do a deep conditioner or a hair mask.
  8. Try not to dye your hair too much either. If you have grays then just touch those up as needed. I hadn't dyed my hair for 4 years but recently I got Ombre's, which I LOVE! They are so low maintenance and super fun :)  
  9. Juicing and eating healthy is key for gorgeous luscious locks :-) When juicing for hair, make sure to add these ingredients to whatever juice you are making: Cucumbers, carrots, lemons, oranges, and beets. Healthy diet = AMAZING hair!
  10. When pregnant, prenatal vitamins do wonders for your hair! A lot of women stop taking them when the baby is born and will continue breast feeding. This is when the hair-loss kicks in. Make sure to keep taking your vitamins during nursing to prevent these issues. Consult with your doctor to discuss more about these matters.
  11. Stress is detrimental to your hair so please take it easy and remember there are others out there that have it a lot worse. 
Hope these tips come in handy. Have a fabulous hair day!

  4. I guess I would have to see a doctor for my hair loss? I have five kids and the youngest one just turned one, I use to have a head full of hair and now I get scared when it comes to brushing it since I've ended up with a little "rats tail" as I call it. =(
