As far as washing is concerned, I usually wash my hair every three to four days. I used to wash my hair everyday, but it’s a lot of work for me and I’ve heard some say that it’s better to go as many days as possible without washing. My hair holds curl really well so I like to make the curl last as long as possible!
Like I said, I loveee curly hair and I use a curling iron on it often. But I try to make my curls last a few days so that I don’t put toooo much heat on it. We all know that heat damages our hair, causes breakage, split ends and dryness. So I probably curl my hair 2-3x a week, depending on what I am doing or if I’m shooting!
A biggg tip I have for taking care of your hair is to avoid putting it in a tight ponytail all the time! When we ladies put our hair up in a tight pony tail often, it can cause our hair to break from being too tight. It’s not bad to put it up every once and awhile, just don’t do it all the time. It’ll save your hair from breaking and from getting strange bald patches at your hairline!
As far as trimming goes, I recommend that you get your hair trimmed at least every three months! I go in every 2 1/2 – 3 months to cut off all the split ends and dead hair. During that time, I also get my layers redone and sometimes I get it thinned (thick hair probs). Trimming just overall helps stimulate healthy growth and keeps your hair looking healthy and beautiful — versus straggly dead ends!
The last part of my routine is to put your hair in a loose braid or loose bun when you sleep. Also, I’ve heard great things about silk pillowcases, but I’ll need to do some more research on that! I’ve found that when I put my hair in a braid at night, it a) keeps the hair out of my face and b) contains it so it doesn’t break or get pulled on! Always use a scrunchie — they’re so gentle on your hair!
My favourite shampoo from Botanical Luxuriate is Banana shampoo + conditioner. In winter am using green apple hair spray serum from same brand.
