A few weeks ago I did a Q+A specifically talking haircare; what I get done, my hair washing schedule and what products + hot tools I like to use.. to name a few. It’s saved to my ‘Haircare’ highlight in case you missed it!
Today, I thought I’d write out the most FAQ’s so they can live here on the blog for easy reference.
MY HAIR WASHING SCHEDULE:
I only wash my hair once per week. Lucky for me, my hair doesn’t get greasy so I can get away with only one wash. On the days I do wash my hair, I use a non-toxic shampoo & conditioner, followed by a hair mask for extra hydration. I am currently using Dae Shampoo & Condition and have been loving Shu uemura’s Urban Moisture Hydro-Nourishing Treatment Mask (came recommended from my stylish, Kayla).
My hair used to have a lot of breakage and I assumed it was due to pulling it back or using hair ties but Kayla explained to me that my hair likely was just needed more hydration. Once I started implementing this hair mask, it was a game-changer and my hair has grown so much and gotten way stronger (despite continuing to use hair ties).
If at any time I do need a refresh or am working out more that week, I use Ouai’s dry shampoo for a quick fix.
