HOW TO SLEEP WITH & TREAT SUPER DRY HAIR!

BriAlecia
My natural hair is longer than it has ever been. I have struggled with hair loss over the years but I’ve finally found a system that works for me. Washing & Conditioning: Once a month or each time I take out my protective styles I deep condition my hair with Salon Care cholesterol Cream Conditioner. I take the cream and fully saturate my hair and scalp with the product, cover my hair with a disposable plastic cap and put my heating cap on for 30 mins and wash my hair. Cholesterol is great for adding moisture to dry damaged hair. I use ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo
& ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner
. These products are amazing! They smell great and add much needed moisture to my hair leaving it looking shiny and healthy. Hydration: I add castor oil to my scalp every day and put it on my hands when I am twisting my hair for bed to add moisture and shine to my hair. I apply it from roots to ends of my hair about once a week or when I notice my hair starting to get dry. Castor oil promotes hair growth, repairs split ends, controls hair loss and helps to thicken hair. Sleep: When I am wearing my natural hair I will twist my hair before bed about 2 times during the week. When I twist my hair i wear a head scarf to protect my hair and keep everything in place. In the morning I will untwist my hair, separate the strands and use a wide tooth comb to fluff the roots. On nights after my initial twist out I will put my hair (untwisted) in my Grace Eleyae Satin Lined Cap. This protects my hair from friction when I sleep and helps my Hair retain moisture and shine. I also use a satin pillow case in case my scare or cap slips off while I am sleeping so that my hair is protected for friction damage. I use the one from Organic Olive Oil Root Stimulater. Protective Styles: This has really helped my hair to grow. I don’t keep my natural hair out for extended periods of time. I am also straying away from wigs because they can take moisture from your hair and the friction between the wig and your hair can cause breakage. When I get my hair braided it usually lasts 1-3 months depending on the style. Cornrow styles last about a month and box braids and twist last closet to 3. When my hair is in braids I put castor oil on my scalp every day or when my scalp feels dry. #CherieCreator

PRODUCTS THAT HELPED WITH HAIR LOSS!
Hair loss can be an incredibly painful experience. It’s embarrassing and exhausting trying to hide. Most times whatever I did to hide it caused more damage. It’s so easy not to feel beautiful when you fall outside of the traditional standards of beauty. In my personal experience I felt like no one else I knew was going through the same thing I was and I just wanted my hair to grow like everyone else. I tried so many products and would get my hopes up when I saw some progress only to be devastated again and again. My hair loss is a direct result of stress and would happen around big deadlines or when something big was happening in my life which would create even more stress! I have very dry hair brittle hair, that doesn’t do well when it is out in its natural state and requires a lot of maintenance. 2 products I use in addition using ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner TROPIC ISLE LIVING - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Therapy deep conditioning once a month, keeping my hair in protective styles like braids and wearing satin bonnets to sleep are Women’s Rogaine and Hairfinity vitamins. Rogaine - 5% Minoxidil Foam for Hair Regrowth - this is a clear watery liquid. You are to apply to the area of your scalp that you experiencing hair loss twice a day. It comes with a dropper so it’s easy to be precise about where you are placing the product. I have hair loss along my hairline so I apply the product and then Pat it into my hair to prevent it from dripping. It can get a bit sticky on your hands. This is not a product that works overnight so you have to be patient but it can have amazing results with continued use. #Hairfinity - Healthy Hair Vitamins[products]#[FiveStars] - LOVE THIS PRODUCT! This produces speedy results! Your results are based on how fast your hair grows and they may not be the same for everyone but in 3 weeks to a month of taking these pills I started seeing my bald patches starting to darken and I feel like my hair was growing at a faster rate. I started using this product first so I have seen the results of this on its own and they are amazing! My stress induced hair loss happens at the top of my head and Hairfinity helped my hair regrow in this area pretty quickly but the thin areas around my hairline still needed extra help and that’s why I started using Rogaine. This is something I wouldn’t talk about for a long time but once I realized it happens to more people than I thought I decided started to feel less embarrassed about something that is of my control. #CherieCreator

I Got My Hair To Grow After Years of Hair Loss❤️
For the last 10 years I’ve struggled with Androgenic Alopecia or Female Pattern Baldness. My hair would start to grow and then start thinning and falling out in patches. Hair has always been an emotional subject for me and the I have shed so many tears over the years. I’ve gone to dermatologist and hair specialists to help me treat my hair and find something that would help but nothing did! I would wear wigs to hide my bald spots and sometimes just give up on my hair all together until I started using these products together and wearing protective hair styles. Last year in May my hair began falling out again and I cut the rest off so people couldn’t see the bald spots. In the first picture you can see my hair is completely shaved. The second photo is my hair this year in April! My hair is dry and brittle so I need products that will add moisture to my hair and create a barrier around each strand to protect it from the elements especially in the winter. 💫 ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner The OGX coconut Miracle Oil shampoo and conditioner have really worked miracles for my hair. These products are made specifically for dry damaged hair! Both the shampoo and conditioner are thick and creamy. Both products have coconut oil which is filled with fatty acids and has a ton of benefits for hair and skin: + Helps hair grow longer, thicker and healthier + Helps with Frizz control + Dandruff + Lice + Boosts Shine & Softness + Helps Protect from Sun Damage These products smell amazing and are Sulfate and Paraben free.They make my hair soft and easy to comb through which means less hair down the drain. They add so much shine to my hair and make my scalp feel like it had a tall glass of water. 💫TROPIC ISLE LIVING - Jamaican Black Castor Hair Growth Oil Sunny Isle - The Original Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil I’ve tried so many hair oils but nothing has worked quite as well as Jamaican black Castor Oil. I used either Sunny Isle or Tropic Isle castor oil and they both are amazing! Jamaican Black Castor Oil has many benefits for digestion, skin and hair: + Promotes Hair Growth + Moisturizes Hair + Strengthens Hair + Prevents Hair Breakage + Heals and Prevents Split Ends While it doesn’t smell the best it has really has helped my hair beyond expectation. I would 100% recommend these products to anyone that is experiencing hair breakage, damage, thinning or hair loss. They are pretty inexpensive. Each product is less than $12. I also tie my hair up in either a hair scarf or satin lined bonnet at night to prevent any breakage from friction on my pillow. One of my favorite products to sleep with is Grace Eleyae satin lined caps. They hair a variety of hair care bonnets, hats, headbands, scrunchies and pillow cases so you are protecting your hair all of the time! Products can be found at graceeleyae.com.

UNDER $10! Choose the right natural hair products from durgstore!
I have thick natural hair and as a young girl just out of university, I am always on a budget😰😰. After years of trying out different high end products and getting the same “OK” results, I started looking elsewhere. Below is a list of hair products I use faithfully that are all under $10. aussie - Miracle Moist 3 Minute Miracle with Avocado for Dry Hair RepairThis is a great deep conditioner for days when you can’t do the whole thirty minute deep conditioning routine. You can find Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle for as low as $3. aussie - Miracle Moist ConditionerThis is my favorite hair conditioner. I use this twice a week to condition and detangle my hair. aussie - Miracle Moist Shampoo . If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love the whole Aussie Moist line lol. ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil ShampooThis coconut milk shampoo by OGX is a steal. It smells like a tropical vacation in a bottle. It lathers nicely with only a small amount of product and leaves hair feeling soft and strong. The coconut oils moisturize and nourish your natural hair and the coconut milk and egg white proteins strengthen your relaxed hair. Eden Body Works Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner This has got to be the best deep conditioner under $10. After using this product on my hair the shine and elasticity was out of this world. If you are struggling with dryness and need a moisture boost I strongly suggest adding this deep conditioner to your regimen. Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Cowash Eden BodyWorks is one of my favorite brands and the Coconut Shea Cleansing Cowash is my favorite cowash. It’s one of the only cleansing conditioners that makes my hair and scalp feel squeaky clean. It also has pretty good slip, which makes detangling easy. It comes in a 16 oz jar, and you can typically find it for about $9. Curls Goddess Curls Botanical Gel Looking for a botanical gel to get your curls popping without flakes and crunch? This Goddess Curls Botanical Gel is your answer. This product will cure your wash and go woes, define your curls, and leave you with soft bouncy ringlets for less than $10. Sounds like a steal to me. Price: $8 cantu - Shea Butter for Natural Hair Deep Treatment Masque  I alternate between this and my Shea Moisture deep conditioning masque and it works just as good. I use it as least twice a month for thirty minutes at a time  and it keeps my curls poppin. Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo Trader Joe’s makes a great sulfate-free clarifying shampoo made with quality ingredients like peppermint, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. A 16 oz bottle only costs $3.99. Maui MOISTURE - Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Hair Mask It has a really nice smell, it’s made with quality ingredients, and it can also double as a leave-in. My hair loves aloe vera juice, which is the first ingredient in all Maui Moisture products. The price ranges from $8 – $9, I caught it on sale for only $6.99 Have you ever tried one of them before? Share your ideas with me!

My hair is very dry due to the dyeing and perming recently. It looks always in a mess. I have been recommending Aussie Hair Mask before, but recently I have used a new product which I want to share with you in this post. It is Nounou Hair Mask, and belongs to Davines brand. I was initially attracted to the natural shine effect of Nounou hair mask, which is good for oily hair and itchy dandruff. I have a moderate amount of hair and the scalp area rich in lipid exudation. Deciding to use this product from an Instagram photo. Empty nounou hair mask box was used as a flowerpot, which looks very fresh and beautiful. My first impression is how comfortable when I use this hair mask. Like most hair masks using methods, after washing hair, wring out extra water as much as possible, let hair mask stay 20-30 minutes on your hair. I usually use this time to apply a face mask. This product has 250ml, so it is quite durable. Nounou's line is aimed at hair that is heavily permed, damaged and prone to oiling. For nounou’s product line, there also have nounou shampoo and nounou conditioner. They all have very delicate flavors, not like some cheap frangances. If you are interested in this brand, you can surprisingly find that the packaging of this hair line is very different. Transparent packaging with light yellow liquid and simple white tag on the bottle, all these design make the package so unique! I use this hair mask once a week, and I can mark four half stars for its effectiveness, and full stars for the packaging design! I love it! davines - NOUNOU Hair Mask

My Hack for Hair Loss and Hair Health
My Hack for Hair Loss and Hair Health
Way back in 2016, at the young age of 19, I was challenged with significant hair loss and thinning. Whilst there are many, much more horrible things to be faced with, losing a lot of your hair at a young age is still very much a nightmare, particularly for someone like me, whose hair is important to their identity and how they like to present themselves. I noticed more and more of my scalp becoming visible when my hair was tied up, and my hairline was getting thinner, and on one side even looked like it was receding! I eventually went to see a dermatologist about my concerns. He told me that my hair was indeed falling at an increased rate, but that it was growing back too, just at a much slower rate than I was losing it. He said this was likely due to stress, as I was a busy full-time student, had a part-time job, and a crazy personal life at the time dealing with anxiety. This is just my personal story, but I want to recommend a hair hack for healthier hair (and nails) that I have been using ever since. You’ll have seen a million hair, skin and nails multivitamins marketed across the internet, but the ultimate hack lies in the main, active ingredient, called Biotin. Biotin is a great product that supports your body in strengthening brittle hair and nails, and plays a role in metabolising some amino acids and fatty acids, which are related to the production of protein (found in hair, skin and nails as Keratin 🧬). Any brand of Biotin will have the same effect, but I have included a picture of my latest bottle in this post. I combined this with regular scalp massages using my finger tips, as well as extra care to detangle and gently comb my hair after washing, to prevent unnecessary breakage. ❗️Remember to consult your healthcare provider before taking any supplements on a daily basis, just to make sure that the ingredients are suitable for you and any other medications you may take. When taking Biotin for a number of weeks, you will start to notice improved hair and nail health, as well as a slight increase in the speed of hair and nail growth over time. Products containing Biotin support your body in the biological functions related to hair, skin and nail health, supplementing these functions along with your diet. ❗️This product is not a replacement for a formal diagnosis or medical treatment. Depending on your unique hair loss situation, you may require prescribed medical intervention! This product might not work for you, in other words, but for those who struggle with hair fall due to stress and anxiety, this may do the trick. Let me know your favourite hair hacks for hair loss in the comments 👩🏻

Hair check ✅ * photo was not edited in any way, photo shows how my hair really is 🙃* I have been using the Luseta Charcoal Detox set *was gifted to me* I honestly am scared to put my hair through different products that i am not familiar with but I still gave it a go. My scalp and hair were at its worst, like I was shedding like ALOT, my scalp was so itchy and a bit flakey. It was just nasty, I was at the verge of crying because it has been a whole month with my scalp acting up. So I came across this brand and let me tell you.. PS: I always had straight, thick strands but very fine hair. I don't use curling irons, flat irons or even blowdry my hair ever since. I try to stay away from heat as much as possible ever since I was younger. I let my hair dry naturally and just brush it. But If I have to go to the salon, probably that would be the only time my hair is exposed to tools like that. AFTER 2 WEEKS: I don't have anymore flakes, my hair isn't shedding as much as it was and my scalp feels completely healed from all the scratching and such. A plus to it, my hair is soo shiny and soft! 😍

MOROCCANOIL - Intense Hydrating Mask You can see from the pic that my hair is thicker now, but as summer is coming, may hair is easy to be oily. Some of my friends said I should not use hair mask in summer, but I don't agree. Today I want to recommend this star product, Moroccanoil hydrating hair mask, which is super convenient without steaming ! I chose this hydrating one  which is suitable for all hair types, and I use it about once a week. Even thick and oily hair can use it! How to use: 1.Wash your hair and wait till half dry. (Use a towel to absorb the water and make it no longer drip). Because too much moisture will dilute the hair mask and affect the hair absorption. 2.Take an appropriate amount and gently rub it in the palm of your hand. (Long hair: 2-3 coin size/Short hair: 1 coin size) The tip of the hair should be rubbed especially so that the nourishing essence of the hair mask can be fully penetrated and absorbed. 3. Applu the mask evenly on the ends of hair and then on top of the head. The epidermal tissue is distributed from the top of the hair to the tip of the hair, so hold the hair with your fingers and slowly comb it down. 4.After wiping, let it stand for 10 minutes. Wrap long hair in a towel for fear of rubbing against clothes. If your hair is severely damaged, cover the towel with a extra plastic wrap to create a certain constant temperature environment, which will allow the hair mask to absorb better. 5.Finally, rinse off, and you will feel that there is still a bit of mask left on the hair. The smooth state is the best It's really super soft after washing.Gently combing the knotted areas will not get stuck, and the hair will feel shiny!

If you have greasy hair, you must try it!
If you have greasy hair, you must try it!
My biggest problem with my hair is oily hair. Even more frightening is that I also like to change my hairstyle. The result of this is that my hair type is still oily. If I do not wash my hair for two days, it will become greasy. At the same time, due to frequent perming and dyeing, the hair is fragile. So, I've always wanted to have a product and solve all my troubles. Until I met Masque Intense Regenerant Hair Mask when I went to the barber's shop to do my styling. My previous opinion was that for oily hair like me, a hair mask is an unnecessary product. I just need to use the conditioner after washing my hair. I am very worried that the mask will make my hair oiler. But this product changed my opinion. KERASTASE Masque Intense Regenerant Hair Mask $70/200ML   This hair mask is a well-known product of the brand, and it has magical effect on repairing damaged hair. The core ingredients are abyssine and hyaluronic acid, the former is a powerful healing molecule with anti-allergic properties, which can effectively reduce scalp irritation. The second core component can strengthen the hair and prevent hair from breaking. The difference of this hair mask lies in its texture. Unlike normal slimy hair masks, this product has a cream-like texture and feels very rich in nutrients. But the hair does not feel difficult to absorb. At the same time, its scent is very advanced, it is a fresh floral fragrance, and it can even save perfume after use. It is very convenient to use. After shampooing, apply it on the scalp from head to tail. Rinse after 5 minutes. But one thing that needs to be reminded is that before using the mask, please make sure that the hair is properly wrung, because water is the main barrier to prevent the active ingredients from penetrating the hair fibers correctly.

A Quick Fix for Your Coarse Hair😱😱😱
A Quick Fix for Your Coarse Hair😱😱😱
I have been told many times by my friends that they want my thick hair. However, the problem is, when you have voluminous straight hair, you want it to be extra smooth because any frizz on it is extremely noticeable. I am always keen on smoothing haircare products especially in summer, when my hair suffers a lot from frequent wash, chlorine in the swimming pool and sunlight. Here are the two products I found that really do their work.   aussie - 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Hair Conditioner Deep conditioning had always seemed luxurious and time-consuming until I met this conditioner. The formula contains Australian balm mint extract, which targets at the roughened cuticles of hair. Once a week, I apply one pump of it to my shampooed hair and just leave it for roughly 3 minutes, which I spend finishing the rest of my shower. After I rinse it off, my hair feels detangled and smooth. 3 minutes a week is enough for me: it keeps my hair well conditioned, yet not oily like some other conditioners would make my hair.   Aussie lightweight oil reconstructor I use this oil (a triple blend of Australian Macadamia nut oil, Australian jojoba oil and avocado oil, all are known to naturally hydrate and soften) whenever I want: after washing, during blow-drying, before hanging out... I only use 2~3 drops of the oil each time, warming it up with my palms before applying to the lengths of my hair with fingers. The difference is visible and instant: coarseness is gone, and my hair is left with a soft, shiny finish. Compared with other oils, this one doesn’t only stay on the surface of my hair. It’s quickly absorbed, leaving only its rich indulging scent. This two products —one I use weekly, another daily— have restored the manageability of my hair. If you have coarse hair and want a handy, efficient solution, then I would highly recommend them! If you have questions, tell me below.
