Hey ladies! I recently chopped my hair off in an effort to get my hair super healthy! My hair was completely fried and uneven due to breakage (caused by over-processing my herrr!). I was getting really sick of clip-in extensions all the time to make it presentable. P.S. I went to Viva Salon here in Las Vegas and saw Vanessa. I’m going back to her soon for ombre!
In addition to cutting my hair, I have an all-new hair routine in place and it’s working wonders so far, so I thought I’d share!
Redken Frizz Dismiss – Redken recently sent me a few items from their Frizz Dismiss line and I was super excited! I use Redken Anti-snap and tone with 9NB (Irish Creme) so I already love Redken.
I’m super impressed with how moisturizing this line is without being greasy. You only need a very small amount of product to get the job done. Not to mention it smells amazing. I highly recommend all three and they’ll last you a long time!
Olaplex #3 – Olaplex is relatively new line that is geared towards professionals. It was recommend to me by a couple friends who love it. It works by strengthening the bonds of the hair. Olaplex #3 is the retail product for consumers. I got mine at Cosmoprof but you can purchase from Amazon.
It’s a lot runnier than I thought it would be. Apply to towel dried hair and comb through. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes before rinsing, shampooing and conditioning the hair. Some people like to put this on their hair overnight and have a lot of success doing that, but the folks at Olaplex don’t recommend it so I’ve just been using this once a week as directed on the bottle. My hair feels like silk after rinsing out.
High Potency Biotin – I picked this Biotin up from Amazon. I chose those one specifically because it a liquid gel capsule, which from what I’ve read – absorbs more easily. It’s also infused with Coconut Oil and I have a love affair with Coconut Oil already so yeah. I’ve been taking this for around 3 weeks so far and I feel like I see an increase in the speed of hair growth. The biggest improvement I’ve seen from it is in my nails. The are much stronger and grow a lot quicker.
Wella LuxeOil Keratin Restore Mask – A hairdresser friend of mine recommended I try this. The first thing I noticed was how AMAZING it smells! I leave this on my hair for about 10 minutes after shampooing, in place of conditioner.
I plan on purchasing the LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir next. My hairdresser friend said if you mix the oil and the mask, it makes an amazing treatment.
Coconut Oil – I do my absolute best to avoid washing my hair everyday which usually amounts to 2-3 times a week. The night before I plan on washing my hair, I put raw coconut oil all over my hair, really focusing on the tips. Then I wrap it up into a little bun and go to bed.
It surprisingly washes out very nicely with no grease left behind and leaves my hair feeling hydrated. Just be sure to write “FOR HAIR” with a big fat marker on the container so nobody uses it to cook with.
