Everything Hair!

  I love listening to requests or questions and one of the most frequently asked question is about how I do my hair and maintain the healthiness. Also, how I did my hair in one of my videos which I put a screenshot of it above! Well, I'm here to tell you my not so secret, secret. First, I'm a convicted hair damage convict, or whatever. I used to dye my hair a lot and do dramatic changes to it. By summer of last year my hair was not having it and was begging me to cut it off, so I did.

 This is important, guys. You have to know when to say enough is enough and just cut your hair off so it can grow healthier. I went from lower back length hair to just below the ear. Such a change is not necessary, you can just cut the damaged part. Then I had to cut out using oils on my hair since it was making it to greasy. And now that it's shoulder length I'm using some new things which are all below, check it out!
  As of late I'm using Pantene Pro-V Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Conditioner. These two are amazing! They smell amazing and the smell lasts me days. My hair is shinier and even straighter. Smooth as ever and strong too. I cannot tell you enough, I'm in love and cannot wait to wash my hair.
  Also, every time I'm about to apply heat onto my hair (which is very, very rare) I make sure I spray some TRESemmé Heat Tamer Spray to protect my hair and prevent as much damage as I can. Prevention is key, guys. Also, I tend to use Dry Spray Shampoo when my hair get a bit oily, so I can go about my day and wash it soon. I'm not a fan of the one I have now but it does help a bit. There are more options out there which you should all check into.
  For brushing my hair I use this brush, which sadly the name has rubbed off but I do remember you get it on Sally's. This brush get rid of all my tangles and really brings a healthy shine to my hair and a nice soft texture. I've been using this brush for years now and I'm very happy. Brushes play a big part on keeping hair healthy so really look into brushes before buying.
 As for heat and styling, I avoid using too many products on my hair. The only heat I apply, which is very rare really, is with my Cortex straightener which I got on sale at Marshall's. This leaves my hair very straight and salon looking. You can also get some nice curls with it if you know how to. But really guys, I avoid adding to much heat to my hair and only leave that for special occasions, and as you can see I've added no blow-dryer into this post because I don't use one. Too much work and heat and I just don't bother.

 Lastly, hair is unique and different for all of us. You have to take some time and work with your hair figuring out what works for you and what doesn't. Understanding that healthy looking hair does not happen my mere luck but there are some factors behind it that we all must do if we want healthy looking hair. I hope this all helped and good luck!
