Growing up in an atmosphere where my grandmother and mother both not only ran, but owned a beauty shop, I was able to experience the pleasure of trying many different hairstyle trends and fads. This also meant learning how to truly take care of my hair and learning some tricks of the trade when in a bind! I’m excited to partner with Pantene to discuss theNutrient Blends Collection and share some of my tricks and tips on the importance of hair care including some that I learned from my mom and grandma!
I had some great questions asked from some followers and wanted to answer below:
Q: What do you do if you have product build up in your hair?
A: Wash twice! This is why I love the Clarity line. Wash twice using this product and it will get out all the product build up + grease out of your hair.
Q: How often do you wash your hair?
A: I wash 1-2 times a week depending on how active I am!
Q: How often do you use conditioner on your hair?
A: I use once a week – mid hair to my ends! I let the conditioner stay on for 4-5 mins while I wash my body!
Q: I know you mentioned you grew up around a hair salon, what tricks has your Grandma or Mother taught you?
A: See below! I have 6 great tips that are a must to know!
Don’t wash your hair everyday! Washing your hair every day will strip your hair of the oils it needs for nutrition and growth. I personally wash my hair every 3-4 days!
Static in your hair? Go into your laundry room and grab a fabric softener sheet! Rub it all over your head from root to the ends. This will instantly remove any static you have. *It will also make your hair smell amazing.
Is your hair feeling dry and damaged? Not curling or straightening correctly? Use a deep conditioning mask! I highly recommend applying before bed, letting it dry, go to sleep then rinse in the morning. A deep conditioning mask is like water to your skin! It’s a must!
Eat healthier foods for healthier hair! Foods like almond butter, tangerines, Alma berries and spinach are nutrient-rich foods that are sure to help your hair.
Know your hair and which brands work for YOU during EACH season of the year! We often change our skincare and makeup for each season, let’s not forget about our haircare. When you travel, you should also be paying attention to the weather in that area. The atmosphere and weather will have a drastic effect on how your hair reacts.
Apply conditioner correctly. I used to always use it from my roots to my tips. Big no no. That would cause my hair to get super greasy. Apply your conditioner starting from the halfway point of your hair to the ends!
Just like skin, your hair needs TLC too. That’s why it’s important to know what type of shampoo and conditioner work for YOU. As I mentioned above, take the time to check the weather where you currently live or if you’re on the go, the weather at your destination. Each season you will see that your hair will react differently. Whether it’s frizzy, dry or oily! We often forget how much the atmosphere will affect our hair.
I am currently using the “Pure Clean & Clarify” between being super pregnant, chasing around X and working full time from home, dry shampoo has been my best friend which means I need to PURIFY this hair when it’s shampoo day! It helps remove oil and styling build-up for soft, healthy hair, and is free of fragrances (which I LOVE because I don’t personally like an overwhelming smell), silicones, parabens, dye and mineral oil. I personally like to wash twice then I use the conditioner from the hair near my ears down. It cleans and conditions perfectly to start a new week.
This collection features two products:
• Silicone & Fragrance Free Shampoo – Enjoy the rich lather of the fragrance-free, silicone-free shampoo, with a blend of pro vitamin B5 and antioxidants. A clarifying formula removes excess oil and styling build-up, while working to purify hair of free radical impurities, leaving locks clean and ready to condition.
o When to use: for a regular, gentle cleanse on your wash days
• Silicone & Fragrance Free Conditioner – Get the moisture your hair deserves. Enjoy the lightweight nourishment of the fragrance-free, silicone-free conditioner, with a blend of pro vitamin B5 and antioxidants. Soothing lightweight, silicon-free nourishment with absorbable and restoring lipids that replenishes hair with moisture to leave hair radiantly refreshed.
o When to use: for regular moisture boosts on wash days.
