Updated Hair routine! Added new Drugstore items
I was looking into Walmart few months back for some affordable shampoos. I picked these up and let me tell you, these products have been a great pick for my 2B curly hair! My hair is silky, smooth and shiny now. I have really oily scalp (Comes from my oily face) and I really need a shampoo that cleanses the oil while keeping my ends frizzfree. These are solving the issue 👍 1. @suave Daily clarifying shampooSuave - Essentials Daily Clarifying Shampoo

At-home DIY hair mask and here is what happened...😱
Since we’re told to have social distance, I cannot go to the barber shop as often as before. So I started to try doing hair mask myself. It’s cheap, easy but very useful as my hair gets healthier, smoother and softer. I do not mix different ingredients, just choose the right conditioner and use in the right way. I prepare shampoo, conditioner, one-off shower cap and olive oil. Here I used PANTENE - 3 Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal Daily Conditioner, it’s cheap but it always does a good job in hydrating hair. I recommend olive oil because it is rich in healthy fats and vitamin E, which could make the hair look shiny and sleek. It may also moisturize hair and improve split ends. Firstly, make the hair slightly wet, then smear the olive oil on hair line. Avoid touch the scalp. Do it slowly to make sure it blends well. Then, wear the shower cap. If you do not have one-off shower cap at home, you can also use plastic wrap. After 30 mins, wash the hair as usual with shampoo. If you still feel oily, you can wash for the second time. Followed with conditioner, leaving it on your hair for 3 to 5 mins, then wash it. You can also skip this step as olive oil has already provided enough nutrition. Then, comb your hair. I love using my lovely Tangle Teezer. It can detangle my frizzy hair easily and there’s no more hair loss. Blow your hair dry. I definitely find my hair moisturized. It looks much shinier. And you can feel the difference by touching your hair. This works for me. I recommend doing hair mask once a week, or your hair might be oily. If you find dandruff problem, olive oil might not be the choice for you.
Wash-out vs. leave-in conditioner, and my choice is...
My hair is fine, flat and easy to get greasy and fuzzy. My hair is always medium in length, which makes it easier for me to manage my hair and create a hairstyle suitable for my fine hair. At the same time, I always focus on hair care. As I concerned, hair conditioner and leave-in conditioner are great treatment for hair care. I use one of them almost every time I wash my hair. Conditioner and leave-in conditioner strengthen my hair roots, smoothe fun and refresh every hair strands. My favorite hair conditioner isPANTENE - 3 Minute Miracle Daily Moisture Renewal Daily Conditioner. Just as its name, this conditioner can create a miracle change in your hair for only 3 minutes. This product helps reduce my hair dryness and repair my hair. It leaves my hair soft and the smell is amazing! It is for daily use. Simply leave on hair for 3 minutes, then rinse and feel the difference. The secret of creating a miracle is its powerful Pro-V formulas. It helps make weak hair healthy and strong against damage. This conditioner is cheap, $4.97, and you can get it from most market. OUAI - OUAI Leave-In Conditioner My favorite leave-in conditioner is from Ouai. This one is more expensive than Pantene, and costs $26 for 140ml. It is a leave in hair mist, infused with amino acid blend, tamarind seed extract, vitamin E and hydrolyzed proteins, to reduce frizz and flyaways for perfectly smooth, silky hair. With these active ingredients, this product functions to attract and retain moisture in your hair, and prepares your hair for styling the next day. I usually apply this before I go to bed. Spray it on the middle to the end of hair. Then gently comb all hair. Wait for a while for all conditioner sinking in. The next you will find your hair smooth and ready for styling. This product’s texture is as light as lotion. It is easy to be absorbed. If you are used to doing all hair care while washing your hair, then you can choose Pantene 3 Minute Miracle hair conditioner. This product is cheap and will amaze you by its effect. If you want to give your hair a long-term deep repairing treatment, you can choose the Ouai leave-in conditioner. By using this, your hair have the whole night to thoroughly absorb all nutrition given by conditioner. What kind of conditioner do you prefer?
😍Dupe alert!!!!!!‼️☑️ I know how many people obsess over @briogeo Scalp revival shampoo which is basically a scalp cleansing scrub shampoo and what if I tell you, you can save 35.53$ for almost the exact same product 😍❤️ I love Briogeo Scalp revival shampoo and it's so cool in deep cleansing the scalp and exfoliating it which helps in healthier hair and promoted hair growth. But it was always a little expensive, 42$ for 8 oz. Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo I found a similar product at Walmart, @equate Scalp care Exfoliating and Detoxifying shampoo, which read the exact same description as Briogeo one and had the same 8 oz size but was only 6.47$. equate - Scalp Care Exfoliating & Detoxifying Shampoo I was a bit skeptical initially. I purchased it just to try it out and compare whether it really works the same way as Briogeo and to my sweet surprise it did! The formula and texture of both is truly identical. The way they both exfoliate a little and lather up is also similar. 🌾Here's a detailed comparison: 🍂Texture : They both have gritty, charcoal infused creamy texture. When rubbed between fingers you can feel the grains that help exfoliate scalp. 🍂Feel and function: They both lather up well and rinse away all the dirt, oil and hair build up. The micro grains wash off with water and don't stick to hair. 🍂Experience after wash: I found Briogeo to be a little more hydrating than Equate one but for my Oily hair and scalp, I liked Equate one better. They both give hair a clean, deep cleansed feel. Both work on dry, flakey scalp as well as Oily one. Because of the peppermint, it feels cooling and soothing on scalp when you apply it. 🍂Ingredients and formulation: Because @equate Scalp care shampoo is designed and formulated to be the dupe of @briogeo's Scalp revival, the formula of briogeo is reverse engineered and altered a little to create @equate Scalp care. They both have similar highlighted Ingredients except a few like: Briogeo has Binchotan charcoal to draw impurities from the scalp whereas Equate has conventional charcoal. Apart from the Charcoal type, both of these have Vegetable-derived micro-exfoliators, a cooling blend of peppermint and spearmint oils, tea tree oil, Coconut oil, Panthenol and Castor oil I know it might seem a bit off-putting to know they have literally copied Briogeo but these days there are plenty of products in the market inspired to be dupes for lesser prices. I don't mind using this scrub as I have seen no major difference in both of their work. They do the same job for different prices. Would you use this dupe??
Three Common Hair Questions Answered!
I've been getting quite a few questions all pertaining to haircare. So I thought I would take the time to dive into a few of the most common that I have been hearing from you guys. Q: How do I enhance my curls and avoid frizz? A: Curly hair is naturally dry, so moisture is the key to making your curls happy. There are a few things you can do to promote healthier and hydrated curls. Use a sulfate-free shampoo or Co-wash like AS I AM - Coconut Cleansing Conditioner to prevent it from stripping natural oils from the hair. Conditioner like SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner specially formulated for curly hair will have extra moisturizing properties. Curls - Blueberry CURL Control Paste Styling gel is excellent for controlling frizz and flyaways. Q: Is there any way I can make my hair grow faster? A: Sadly, no, but not all hope is lost. You may not be able to grow your hair faster, but you can make sure that the hair you have makes it to a longer length. A diet that is rich in Zinc and Biotin keeps the hair healthy enough to meet its full potential. Q: I want to grow my hair longer but my ends get really damaged and eventually split. Do I have to get it cut? A: unfortunately, you have to cut it to grow it. After five weeks of growth with no trim, you will get bigger split ends, and you will have to cut more off in the long run. It may not seem like it, but you end up saving time and length by trimming every 3-4 weeks.

My secrets for medium width hair
Hair width shows the thickness of the strands of the hair. it is very easy to determine hair width. You can take one piece of the hair from a brush and see it under the light. If the hair could be seen easily and looks wide, it is coarse hair. if you cannot see your hair clearly, it is fine hair. between coarse hair and fine hair is medium width hair. the strands of coarse hair are very wide, and it is the strongest hair among all hair types. Fine hair has a very small width, which means it is delicate. Medium hair is not very thick or thin. It is strong and elastic. I have medium width hair. it is the most common hair type and can cover scalp well. It can be controlled easily. The hair type looks thick and is not easily get damaged. To maintain the shine and health of medium width hair, there are few tips. One is limit heat styling. Always use heat styling tool can reduce the moisture of the hair and make hair drier and less manageable. The second tip is to apply a high-quality shampoo that can bring nutrition to the hair. I recommend one good shampoo, Ogx’s Quenching Coconut Curls Shampoo. I like this one because it contains natural ingredients, including coconut oil, honey and citrus oil. It feels really moisturizing after washing. The shampoo gets the hair clean and leaves it soft. It makes my hair to be less tangled and very shiny, bouncy and voluminous. My hair is hydrated and never feel dry after washing, and never feel oily or greasy. I use it with the conditioner. Both work well with each other to make my hair silky soft. Last but not least, when washing the hair, remember do not use very hot water. Using hot water may harm the hair and reduce the moisture of the hair.

To get your unique formula you just need to fill out your hair profile, for example mine is wavy+medium+dry! So the formula I got works best for wavy, medium thick hair ☺️ you can also choose fragrance and color of your shampoo (or go fragrance and dye-free!) and pick your hair concerns, like anti-frizz, shine, soothe scalp, etc. The function of beauty - Custom shampoo + conditioner are also vegan, cruelty-free and focus on ‘clean’ ingredients so your hair can truly thrive.

. 🧖🏽♀️ I was gifted this Deep Cleansing Scalp and Hair Scrub in Vanilla Coconut with Mangosteen Powder from @zionhealth. Sea salt is used as the physical exfoliator. It also contains several other natural ingredients such as coconut oil, argan oil, vitamin E, aloe, almond oil, clay minerals, etc. This product comes in two other scents – Pear Blossom and Green Apple. . First off, the smell is heavenly. It smells like a tropical coconut dessert in a tub. It’s a thick but gentle scrub that really foams up as you scrub your head/scalp. . I initially started using this product once/week as per recommendation but I found it too drying for my scalp as I noticed I was scratching my head a lot. I then transitioned to using it once every two weeks or so and I found this frequency more effective for me. The main change I noticed after using this product is that my scalp did not get as easily oily or “dirty” looking as before, which was helpful since I don’t shampoo my hair everyday. I have barely reached for my dry shampoo. . I naturally shed a lot of hair. With this scrub, I noticed that I would sometimes shed even more hair than usual as I rinse off my conditioner. I guess this makes sense because it is an exfoliator? . In terms of packaging, there seems to be a crucial piece of instruction missing on their packaging label. I have never used a hair scrub before and perhaps it is my naïve self that thought I would use the scrub after my shampoo and conditioner on my first use, like I would with a hair mask. This led to numerous, scary, tangles in my hair. On my second use, I used the scrub between my shampoo and conditioner, which is exactly the way you are supposed to use it (the complete instructions are on their website). So, it would really help if the complete instructions were included on the packaging label. . Overall, I am enjoying this product. Thank you @zionhealth for introducing a hair/scalp scrub into my routine. We all talk about the importance of exfoliating our skin, so our hair/scalp should also receive the same treatment! It makes sense to exfoliate our hair/scalp to scrub off dead cells, allowing for new and healthy hair growth! .
