Healthy, low-maintenance hair is SOO important to me. I am a minimal morning beauty routine kinda girl, and that includes taming my mop.
Ok, so here’s how my hair is: I have very thick, slightly wavy hair. It tends to frizz a little when it’s humid out. I even develop a few curls around my face on those days which is odd lol anyway, it’s taken years for me to finally figure out what the deal is with my hair and how I can style it in the laziest way, yet still have it look good.
- C U T : this is honestly where it all starts. Having your hair cut on a regular basis really keeps it healthy-looking and feeling. It also is key to making it grow faster. After going to many stylists, I finally found one I really like and she suggested thinning it out with sheers after she cuts the length and blow dries it. This make a HUGE difference. I was SO close to chopping it all off and doing a lob before she suggested this. Now, my hair dries faster, has more volume because it’s not so weighted down, and is so much easier to brush through. I also get long layers to add some texture and most recently, I got long curtain bangs. And on that note, if you’re contemplating bang bangs, try these first. I absolutely love them. I think I needed something extra around my face for a while and they look super cute with my hair in a ponytail or bun!
- C O N D I T I O N : probably THE most important thing for keeping your hair healthy! You might try a thousand before you find the one that works for you. I know I did, but you can tell the difference when a conditioner is actually working on you. I use Tresemme Color Revilalize and I’m loving it right now.
- M I N I M A L . H E A T : I rarely curl my hair for a couple of reasons. #1 I’m kinda lazy and it makes my arms hurt haha and #2 I really hate the idea of frying my hair in any sort of way. I’ve found that as long as I brush or comb my hair after washing it and then let it air dry completely before I go to bed, it always looks great on its own without heat products. Another upside to not using heat is that my hair actually grows faster. I swear using heat on it really causes damage that makes it grow slower. So, if I ever do want a little curl, I make sure to not hold the curling wand too long and to always condition really well after.
