My Hair Care Routine
I previously posted this article in May. However, due to a technical glitch, I had to take it down. Enjoy!
I hope your day is fantastic!
AVEENO® presented me with the opportunity to share my hair care routine on their blog and with my readers. First let me tell you a little bit about my hair. It is very very coarse and tightly coiled. I previously had a relaxer for 17 years. However, the constant chemical process begin to thin out my hair, so two years ago, I decided to grow out my relaxer. I am proud to say that I am now 100% natural. However, I do still get a blow out and press every two weeks. What can I say, I just like my hair straight! But my hair is very thick, shiny, and strong. It is growing very fast and I love it! I always get compliments on how healthy my hair looks! To me this is the best compliment ever. Check out my routine!
1. Every two weeks, I go to Fluer Elysee Salon in Atlanta, GA and get a blow out and press.
2. I apply a small amount of coconut oil to my scalp and massage 3 x per week. I apply the left over oil in my hands to my hair for added sheen. I learned this tip from DE from Beautylogicblog. Since, I have been doing this, my hair is growing faster and always has a nice shine.
3. Every night I pile my hair on top of my head and place a soft cotton headband around the pile. I then lightly wrap my head in a silk scarf. In the morning, I simply run a comb through my hair and go. If I need a little extra curl or body, I take large sections of my hair and use my flat iron to create big curls.
And that is my hair care routine! I think it is pretty simple and low maintenance. My blow out usually lasts two weeks unless I sweat a lot or somehow get it wet. I would love to hear your hair care routine. Please share. I am always looking for new hair care tips!
