This is a topic that has been on my mind a lot recently. Not because I have been blessed with long hair, but beacause I am looking for ways to do my hair, without having to add so many products.
You see, I used to have pin-straight hair. But then, I changed to a cross somewhere in between curly and wavy. Almost like it doesn't know which it wants to be! Because of that, I know have super frizzy hair. In order for me to do anything with it I have to add hair products to keep it tamed.
I'm sure many of y'all know exactly I am talking about! A little of this, more of that.
This is my weak spot. I am a sucker for hair products!
I use all-natural or organic shampoo and conditioner. But, like most people I talk to, I have to change them out every few months. It just doesn't seem to work to well after using it for awhile.
It is just all the "extras".
For me, it is not just the hairsprays, mousse, and oils. I use a flat iron on a daily basis. All this combined, it leaves my hair looking dull and horribly fried.
As much as I like my "bad-for-you" hair stuff, I do try to take care of my hair. Here are some of the things that I do:
Coconut Oil Hair Mask
Just smother your hair in plain ol' coconut oil. I usually do this once a month. I like to do it at night and take it shower in the morning. You don't have to leave it over night, just as long as it is at least 30 minutes.
Some people have asked me if the oil stains my pillow, the answer is nope! Although, this may differ with different people. I think my hair is that dry. If you don't want to take a chance, you can use a shower cap or something.
If you have Shea Butter, you can use it along with the coconut oil. Just a little though (about 1 tablespoon, if you have long thick hair).
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
I don't this as often, because I don't like the smell. It works great! Leaves your hair shiny and smooth!
Use in place of conditioner.
Sometimes, I'll wash my hair, use the vinegar, then wash it again. It seems to help take the smell away. I'm not to fond of walking around smelling like vinegar!
I only do this when my hair gets so bad that I have to stop using my flat iron on it.
This is so simple there is nothing left to say!
What do you use on your hair? What products do you use instead of the "bad-for-you" hair stuff?
Regardless of your hair type, I wanna know!
That is it for today. Wishing you all have a great weekend, full of sunshine!
