Hey guys, welcome back to another post
Today I am finally doing my updated haircare routine, I have been meaning to do this post for so long.
Healthy hair care routine I use it every single day.
So yeah I am just going to try and give you as much information today on ”how I care for my hair” and I hope you enjoyed the post.
Okay, so my healthy hair secret weapon is my wooden brush I am absolutely in love with this thing and I will never ever ever be without it.
When you use a wooden brush it absorbs your hair’s natural oils so when you brush your hair it distributes these oils evenly and conditions your hair.
It also reduces static and breakage and it’s just the perfect tool if you’re trying to grow long healthy hair.
I will never go back to using a plastic or a metal brush again, and they also massage acupressure points on your head which is great for stimulating circulation to the scalp and promoting healthy hair growth.
It’s like every time I use this, I’m getting a scalp massage.
So I have three different wooden brushes I have two by the brand Eurotech,
a large oval brush and a small travel size brush and these are the highest quality brushes I’ve ever come across.
They’re made in Germany, they’re made of maple wood and I bought them at Whole Foods, around four years ago and.
Unfortunately, I cannot find these brushes anywhere, I’ve searched everywhere.
I’ve looked at Whole Foods, I’ve looked online and I just can’t seem to find these brushes anywhere and that makes me sad because I want to recommend a brush that you guys can buy.
So I’m gonna keep my eye out for these and hopefully, I can find a place where you can get them and.
Recently, I bought this wooden brush and it’s by the brand Tek it’s made in Italy and I have been loving this I love the size, I love the shape.
It’s just a great brush so yeah you can look for this brand Tek,
I find that there are really big quality differences with wooden brushes, I have been using a wooden brush for years and years and I used to buy this one from my local health food store.
it’s one that you can find at a lot of different places but every few months, it would just completely break, like this part would just rip out and keep in mind, I have a lot of hair but I still felt like it wasn’t a well-made brush.
So I went through around six of those brushes before I found my Eurotech brushes and I’ve had my Eurotech brush for around four years.
it’s still going strong it looks completely brand new to me and all the bristles are still attached, so yeah I try and look for a company that specializes in making wooden brushes.
I find that the Europeans make the best wooden brushes.
Oiling your hair is one of the best ways that you can condition your hair, it keeps your hair hydrated it keeps it soft, it keeps it shiny.
There are so many oils that you can use for your hair, some of my personal favorites are argan oil, coconut oil, of course, jojoba oil is really good if you have thin hair because it’s light, avocado oil, I mean there are so many different oils.
You can use anything you want, you just want to make sure that it’s unrefined cold-pressed preferably and organic and I also like to add in some essential oils or some neem oil, rosemary essential oil is good for stimulating circulation to the scalp.
It makes her hair so soft and it just really promotes healthy hair growth.
The same with the name, neem is amazing for growing strong healthy hair.
It’s just a beautiful oil, so I kind of like to just mix a few oils and make my hair conditioner.
There are two ways that I own my hair, I will either just coat my hair in the oil of my choice and then just leave it in my hair for a few hours or even overnight, and then just shampoo it out
Or else I will do gradual oiling.
And this is what I’ve been doing lately I think it’s perfect for the wintertime and I just put a little bit of oil through my ends every single day.
Just the smallest amount so my hair doesn’t look greasy and I just keep doing that every single day until I shower.
So it’s kind of like my hair is always being nourished by these oils and also when you’re oiling your hair.
It’s the perfect time to give yourself a scalp massage and a scalp massage promotes healthy hair because it stimulates the circulation to your scalp, it also helps you relax and relieve stress because I mean who doesn’t want a scalp massage.
I love scalp massages and had massages, any other massage I don’t care for but I mean I will have a hand massage and a scalp massage 24/7 and be the happiest girl alive.
so now it’s time to talk about Shampoo and Conditioner you can read the label of your bottle of shampoo and it can make it sound like the most amazing spectacular shampoo.
it’s gonna make your hair grow up healthy, it’s gonna make it shiny, soft, beautiful, how that’s mainly marketing they just want you to buy the shampoo and conditioner.
it’s pretty much just lies what you want to be doing is looking at the back of the bottle and checking out the ingredient list.
I would look for something that doesn’t have things like sulfates, fragrances, just chemicals that are gonna strip your hair and aren’t that good for your health.
my favorite shampoo as you guys know is by a brand called Calia, I’ve done a whole post on them they’re just an amazing company their products work for my hair they’re very gentle.
they’re very natural and I just love Calia so much, so of course, I had to mention them again I’ve been using them for years and I’ll use them for the rest of my life.
I love you, Calia.
I also like to use a shower filter so I could be washing my hair in the best water possible, I tried to only shampoo my hair every 4 to 6 days.
I wash my body every day but I only shampoo and condition every 4 to 6 days and I find that the longer you go without shampooing the more your hair balances out.
Then you don’t have to shampoo as often if that makes any sense and your hair’s oils kind of act as
conditioners so it’s good not to be stripping them out of your hair every single day.
I also highly highly highly recommend doing hair rinses, I have two rinses that I do all the time.
The first rinse is an apple cider vinegar rinse, where I just put a little bit of apple cider vinegar in the bottom of a cup around 2 tablespoons maybe, and then fill the cup up with water and then just dump that over my head after I’m finished shampooing and conditioning, and I just leave that in my hair and, it leaves my hair so soft and shiny and the apple cider vinegar clarifies it, so it just. I always have a good hair day after I do an apple cider vinegar rinse.
The second rinse, I do have a post on and that is the rosemary hair rinse, rosemary is just amazing for growing long healthy hair, basically, I just take some fresh rosemary and simmer it in a pot with some water and then once it cools down just dump it over my head and it leaves my hair so soft and shiny and it smells so amazing.
So yeah hair rinses can make a big difference on your hair and a lot of people swear by the no-poo method where you wash your hair with baking soda and then condition it with apple cider vinegar and I do like doing that to my hair sometimes more as a clarifying treatment but I prefer just using a shampoo and conditioner.
But I thought I would just still mention it because maybe you guys want to check it out or try it out for yourself because it is a cheap way to shampoo and condition your hair and it does make your hair feel nice.
So that’s another option for shampooing and conditioning.
If you have psoriasis, you can refer to this article: psoriasis and hair loss
Now my next tip is probably the hardest tip for a lot of people but that is just cut down on the amount of heat you’re using in your hair and you don’t have to do this forever.
You can just try and limit your use if you use a straightener every day maybe just try and straighten
it only once a week, you just really want to give your hair a break and allow it to become healthy again.
I’ve talked about this before but I used to straighten my hair every single day for high school and it just damaged my hair so much.
My hair looked horrible without styling, I would straighten my hair would become more damaged so then I would have to straighten it, even more, to make it look healthy again.
It would become even more damaged and it was just this vicious cycle for me, so one day I just cut that cycle and I was like I’m just not gonna use heat on my hair anymore.
I’m gonna let my hair grow out and be natural and that’s what I did and now I’m happy with my natural hair I don’t need to style it anymore.
I just let it hair dry, I don’t use any styling tools, I don’t use any styling products so just do a little
challenge with yourself and try to reduce the amount of heat that you use in your hair for a while.
I guarantee you will see a huge improvement with your hair.
Damage proof hairstyles are really important when it comes to growing long healthy hair for me, my favorite protective hairstyle is just putting my hair in a side braid, you guys probably noticed from like 80% of my posts that I always have my hair and a side braid.
My go-to everyday hairstyle is just a side braid with some sort of hat, I just find that it keeps my hair protected prevents it from getting matted and I love braids I think that they look really cute and I always wear protective hairstyles to bed.
If I go to bed with my hair down I will wake up with the worst matted poofy dry hair.
So I have two protective hairstyles that I wear to bed, I will either twist my hair into a bun and then secure it at the front of my head with a big clip.
I love doing this because the next morning I just wake up with the perfect waves in my hair so it’s kind of like a heatless way to style your hair.
Or else I will sleep with my hair in a braid and then secure it with a scrunchie and I like to use the scrunchie because sometimes an elastic will break your hair but a scrunchie is soft and gentle and it won’t cause any breakage.
As most of you guys know I am a firm believer in eating a healthy Whole Foods diet and I also really believe that you are what you eat.
If you eat beautiful nourishing foods, it’ll just shine through and you will look beautiful on the outside so I think that food plays a huge role in having healthy hair.
Eat your Omega-3 Fatty Acids, eat your mineral-rich foods, I love starting my day off with a green drink every day, it gives me those minerals, it’s detoxifying and I just feel like it’s the most beautiful elixir in the world, just eat real food.
A lot of you guys ask what supplements I take for my hair and if I could recommend one supplement for a hair it would probably be MSM powder.
MSM is an organic sulfur compound that benefits our skin, hair, nails, and joints due to its collagen-building properties.
It’s also a wonderful anti-inflammatory and great for detoxifying the body, I will mention that there are huge quality differences in MSM supplements.
Always look for a non-petroleum derived MSM and you can use it both internally and externally.
Another little tip that I still recommend is just going to your local beauty supply store and get some little trimming shears, just little scissors to cut your hair and just go through your hair whenever you’re bored and find that little split ends.
Just to give them a little snip off and it’s gonna make it.
so You don’t have to go to the hairdresser as often, that is my little trick.
Those are my tips to achieving long healthy hair naturally I hope you guys enjoyed the post.
If you did, remember to give it a thumbs up and let me know what do you guys do to keep your hair healthy.
I love you guys and I will see you in my next post
