How to treat dry hair? You can't miss these products!
I generally have very dry hair. I hate seeing the ends of my hair and see that it looks like a used toothbrush. So over the years I have been trying products and tips for my hair to always look its best. So, first of all I start the night before with coconut oil. We already knew that coconut oil is a super product that you can use as lip balm, makeup remover, face cream, cuticle conditioner... But it's also good for hair. If you want to show off a spectacular mane you should incorporate it into your care routine, because its a hydration and nutrition pump, which fights frizz and other problems. Coconut oil is known for its moisturizing and nourishing properties, and also provides shine and softness, without leaving the hair oily. On the other hand, it also protects the hair fiber by preventing hair breakage and giving it strength. PANTENE - Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner Bundle

Hair Routine for Sleek Shine
I have the most over processed hair, after nearly 10 years of modeling, dying my hair every few months, and over styling my hair has really been through it. Even tho my hair is damaged it doesn’t stop me from attempting to make it look healthy. I have quite fine pin straight hair, it’s very dense in some places and sparse in others like around my hairline. I have a few products that really help me to make my hair look it’s best. For me I feel my hair looks it’s best when it shines and appears damage free without looking greasy o heavy. This is a great routine for someone with my kind of hair, for someone who needs to restore life and youth to their hair. 1. Once I’m in the shower I apply the Kérastase Resistance Shampoo to the palms of my hands and begin massaging it in at the roots and working my way down to the ends of the hair. Massaging the shampoo improves circulation in the scalp to stimulate growth and really helps thoroughly clean the hair. This shampoo is a strengthening product for brittle, damaged hair, with split ends; so it’s perfect for my hair. It’s cleansing without being too harsh. I then completely rinse the shampoo from my head with warm water. 2. I next apply the Kérastase Resistance Conditioner which is the match to the shampoo starting from the ends of my hair and working up to the crown, but don’t apply the conditioner to the roots or it will weigh the hair down. I let the conditioner sit in my hair for 3-5 min for maximum penetration before brushing with my favorite Tangle Teaser wet hair brush and then rinsing. This conditioner leaves my hair feeling lustrous and moisturized. The conditioner helps with strengthening the hair so it doesn’t break and improves the appearance of shine. 3. This is a step I personally take after I’ve towel dried my hair, while the pores on my scalp are still open from the warm shower. I use the Hers Minoxidil topical solution on the patchy parts of my hairline where hair has slowed or stopped growing due to multiple burns from hot tools over my many years modeling. Minoxidil is a proven and safe solution to stimulate hair regrowth. I’ve been using it for months now and I really see improvements and new growth. Kinda amazing! I have to use this day and night on my hairline for best results. 4. I always let my hair air dry about 50% before I go in with the Kérastase Genesis Defense Thermique fortifying blow dry fluid. This hair serum provides anti-breakage protection and tames frizz without weighing the hair down. I don’t normally blow dry my hair but if I did I know this will provide protection and just gives my hair the boost of moisture it needs especially on the ends. I spray this from the mid lengths of the hair to the ends and brush it through. 5. Once my hair is completely air dried I finish my routine with a simple hair oil like the OGX Renewing Extra Penetrating oil. I apply a dime sized amount to the palms of my hands and run it through the lengths of my hair focusing on the ends and avoiding the roots. This really helps lock in the moisture from the other products and leaves my hair with an expensive looking shine. It tames my fly aways and completely eliminates any frizz I have at my ends. Just use it sparingly if you have thin hair because you run the risk of weighing the hair down. 6. This is an extra step that I do once in a while but is completely necessary to maintain healthy liking hair if you’re hair is super damaged like mine. I use the Olaplex No 3 hair perfector before shampooing on damp towel dried hair and leave it in for 15 to 30 min before hopping in the the shower and continuing with my normal hair routine, which means if you chose to do this step you use this hair product like a mask before shampooing. This is a hair stylist staple because it really works! It repairs and strengthens the hair and you can see a difference in a single use!
OLAPLEX & OGX ✨
We all would like to have perfect hair, but in most cases there is always something that fails us; In my case, my split ends open very easily, my hair gets dirty right away and sometimes I need volume and shine. In this post I will tell you about some products that have helped me to recover my hair. OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil I started using this products when I colored my hair and didn't want it to look damaged. I went from a completely natural virgin hair to a bleached one but with the use of this product I managed to keep it beautiful. Olaplex 3 repair damaged and broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. The Bonding Oil it’s a highly-concentrated, weightless reparative styling oil. Dramatically increases shine, softness, and color vibrancy. N°7 minimizes flyaways and frizz, while providing UV/heat protection of up to 450°F/232°C. Can be used daily on wet and dry hair, or before styling with heat, applied just a few drops restores hair appearance and texture. Both products is for all hair types, especially for those using heat tools daily. Occasionally I use, ogx - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Extra Penetrating Hair Oil I think we have all heard about the properties of argan oil... In the description of this products says that it’s USDA Certified Organic Moroccan Argan Oil, Virgin, Unfiltered, 100% Pure, Cold Pressed. vitamin E and antioxidants renewing your hair's cell structure, sealing in shine and creating softness. A blend of Moroccan argan oil which instantly penetrates the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening. The difference between these two oils is huge. OXG feels heavy and sticky, while Olaplex feels light, it doesn't leave your hair clingy. I don't think OGX it's bad, I just don't like wearing it with straight hair and I'm going outside. 🤷🏻♀️
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.

Frizzy Hair vs. Argan Oil
Frizzy hair has been my nemesis since I got a perm 1 year ago 😫. I have naturally thin straight hair that has never been color-treated before. However, I wanted to change things up and got a perm. This ruined my hair! It made it so dry and frizzy. Recently it has gotten better since I chopped off all the perm parts but I feel like my hair is not the same anymore. So I gave ogx - Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil a try. I usually let my hair air dry to prevent further damage to it. After washing my hair, I squeeze the smallest amount of this product on my palm and rub it into my hair when it is fairly dry. I see immediate results. You can't really tell from the pictures, but it definitely gets rid of a lot of the frizz. The reason why I use such a small amount is because I have such thin hair. With so little hair, if I use too much, it'll make my scalp look so greasy after a while. I speak from experience! So for all my peeps out there, if you have nice full thick hair, you have no worries. But for my thin hair peeps, use only a bit! I promise a little goes a long way. This product is worth the buy and is such a cheap fix! ✅

Best cream and conditioner for bleached hair
Best cream and conditioner for bleached hair I have coarse hair because I bleached my hair three times to get it blonde. It is a very long and damaging process. Blenching makes my hair dry, fizzy and easy to breakage. The process also hurt my scalp. Bleaching raises my hair’s cuticle and allow Hydrogen peroxide and ammonia penetrate, rapidly and continuously reduce the moisture from my strands. After I blench my hair, I have to use a lot of hair care product to keep my hair hydrated and nourished. I recommend using Pantene’s INTENSE SMOOTHENING LEAVE ON CRÈME. This product can smooth hair and bring moisture to the hair, leaving hair hydrated and smooth. This treatment helps me to plump the hair with moisture, make my hair more elastic. The texture is very thick and even a little bit greasy if applying too much. After using it, my hair immediately becomes smooth. It increases shine and manageability to my hair. I use this almost every day to prevent my hair away from environmental damage, including air-condition and UV rays. I also recommend OGX Extra Strength Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner. This is a little bit expensive conditioner, costs around 15 dollars. The product has a strong smell of coconut oil. The texture is very thick and creamy with a decent smell. It makes my hair soft and nourished. I only need to use a little to coverage and smooth hair. I have tried many different conditioners that are often very dry. this one gives me a great result to manage my hair. Although blenching my hair raises it's cutlet and makes strands tangle easily, this conditioner seal in moisture and add shine to my coarse hair. I highly recommend these two products to people who have damaged and bleached hair.
This hair mask saves my thick hair!😱
Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask My friend highly recommended this hair mask- Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask and I decided to give it a try. I have med/thick hair that's naturally straight. Claims: ✅ It's good for all hair types- straight, wavy, curly, coiled and even tightly coiled. ✅ It's an intensive weekly treatment to restore essential hydration and enhance hair’s resilience and strength. ✅ Its key benefits include restoring moisture, creating vibrancy and preventing future damage. ✅ It's free of silicones, DEA, and artificial dyes. It is cruelty-free, color-safe, and safe for use on chemically-treated, relaxed, and keratin-treated hair. My thoughts: Overall I think the product does what it claims. It smells heavenly and makes me feel so relaxed. I usually leave it on for at least 15 minutes just because I enjoy the smell so much that I don't want it to go away. I haven't tried the other popular method (putting on a plastic shower cap) though. So far I'm happy with the result as I noticed and continue to notice how soft and smooth and healthy my hair is because of using this product. The moment I rinse off the hair mask, I can immediately see the difference. People kept asking me what I use on my hair, and it’s this mask that makes the difference. However there's downside too. The jar only has 10-15 uses. I have thick hair and I also use it quite often, 2-3 times a week, so it doesn’t last as long. The product is also a bit pricey.
