Hi babes! I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about my hair lately, so I wanted to write a post about the 5 things I use regularly. Below I’m giving you details on each. Continue scrolling for a fun giveaway!
Shampoo/Conditioner – When I became pregnant last year I did a deep dive into beauty products and ingredients. I switched everything I was using to a “clean” option including my shampoo and conditioner. I’ve now been washing my locks with Rahua for about a year. It’s rich in active antioxidants known to protect and promote hair growth AND has a blend of natural oils that moisturizes, strengthens, and adds shine! YAS please! As far as the cadence in which I wash, I do 3-4 times a week. Also the conditioner is just applied on my tips to keep them soft and healthy. If I apply it on or close to the scalp my hair gets greasy, fast! Since it is a “clean” product, it has a natural smell. I’m here for it but just want to point that out.
Oils – Hair oils are amazing for softer, stronger hair with increased shine and less frizz. I’ve used Moroccanoil, OUAI and Reverie. Another added benefit of hair oils is that they help protect again heat! Apply oil to semi-dry or dry hair. I use a few drops on my tips and work it up my hair about one inch toward my scalp. Make sure you don’t apply oil on or near your scalp – it will get greasy. I typically use an oil 3 times a week to keep my locks looking freshhhhhh.
Straightener – Many of you have asked how I achieve a sleek look. In addition to a great shampoo, conditioner and hair oil, it’s all about your hot tools! I have been using my CROC for about 2 years, and love it! SO worth the investment. I am a huge fan of all of their products! I specifically have this flat iron. The titanium plates lock in moisture and reduce static while the negative ions reduce and close cuticles to increase shine. Sign me up!
Brush – Ok, I finally caved and bought the Mason Pearson Popular brush! Ya, ya, it’s $240 BUT totally worth it! These brushes are designed to strengthen and protect the hair, causing less breakage. Trust me, this holy grail of a product will keep you locks looking SO healthy!!
Silk Pillow – This pillow is such a gem!! Not only does this silk pillowcase help maintain healthy hair, BUT it also is great for your skin, maintaining optimal product absorption and keeps wrinkles away. Oh, and one other added benefit, the signature midnight black color negates light for deeper, more restorative sleep. I’ve had this beauty for over a year and legit can’t sleep without it. I truly believe this has been my secret weapon for maintaining my hair-DO and shine for multiple days. I don’t know if y’all are like me, but I use to wake up with my hair looking cray AF! Well, NO more of that! It saves me SO much time as I’m not re-doing my locks on the daily. My hair looks great every morning thanks to my Discover Night Pillow. It is definitely a splurge worthy item!
