Rate my hair care routine for my curly/wavy hair

So I have been trying to mess with my hair routine to better define my curls. I have curly/wavy hair, more like beach curls is what my fam said..I am new to hair care so would love some tips on how to better define my curls more. Here’s what I currently use. I was about 2-3 times per week depending if I swam or not. I live in a hot/dry climate and love to swim when I can for exercise REDKEN - Extreme Shampoothis is new to my mix and bought during ultas jumbo sale. So far I notice nothing different to what I used before but it doesn’t seem to make it worse so still deciding. I use a handheld hair scrub I found on amazon to wash my hair and love how it got rid of my dandruff just from using a new tool REDKEN - All Soft Conditioner
I was using this with its shampoo but ran out of the shampoo..loved the two together because I felt my hair getting softer and silkier with each use. May end up going back to this set if I don’t find something better for my hair SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Masque Packette
I use this once a week in the shower and it does make a difference but I think it weighs down my hair too much so looking for recommendations! DevaCurl - WAVE MAKER Touchable Texture Whip
I love to use this product to help define my curls more but wish it wasn’t so expensive so I took out one star. I use about a quarter size in my hair when wet and doesn’t weigh it down ogx - Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
I use this after my hair has dried and so far I really love this stuff! I notice the frizz decreasing and it doesn’t weigh my hair down. I was using Paul Mitchell’s skinny serum but that’s so expensive I found something else to help but at a better price and so far it’s great! Batiste - Tropical Dry Shampoo Coconut & Exotic
love this for days 2-3 on my roots. I can see a big difference and don’t see myself getting a different kind ever! It cleans up my roots and I never see any residue or white powder look after I rub the product in. PANTENE - Pro-V Curl Mousse to Tame Frizz for Soft and Touchable Curls
I have had this mousse for years and a friend with curly hair said to use a mousse to help hold my curls better..once this is empty I need to find something better to hold my curls without the crunchy feeling. I am trying to find better ways to hold my curls and get the curls more near the roots. I didn’t realize till recently that my hair was so curly so I just brushed it before and threw it up till I figured out what my hair was really about. So I’m new to curly hair care and would love tips and affordable recommendations on products! Thanks!!

Say “BYE” to your rough hair!
I have unfortunately been cursed with rough, thick, coarse hair. With my hair, you will only ever see me in a ponytail or a messy bum, because I am unable to deal with it most of the time. And the few times I need to look a little presentable, I need a clear window of at least three hours in my schedule to be able to work my hair into a decent hairstyle. This being said, I have tried a lot of things to fix my hair, and I have settled on the following solutions. For the first one, I have to mention my trusted hair conditioner, the REDKEN - All Soft Conditioner. I purchased this product about three months ago for $27, and I can tell a huge progress in the texture of my hair. Before, as you can see in the images, my hair was frizzy and a coarse mess. But after using this conditioner twice a week for the last three months, I have seen a HUGE positive difference! It smells so good with a coconut flavour, and the conditioner applies smoothly on to the hair. The second product I really love to use when I need to tame my hair is the MOROCCANOIL - Hydrating Styling Cream. I got this at Sephora for $34 about the same time that I got my _ conditioner. It might seem pricy, but the product lasts a while and actually works for my hair type! I started by using this product before styling using heat, but I prefer to use it after every wash as I see that my hair gets smooth and easy to style that way. It smells great too. My hair used to be dull and dry after washes, but since I got this, the frizz is controlled and my hair is sleek and shiny, and it also feels so healthy! Don’t double think about getting this, 10/10 recommend it!

HOLY GRAIL DEFINING CURL CREAM‼️
HOLY GRAIL DEFINING CURL CREAM‼️
cake - The Curl Friend Defining Curl Cream For reference, I have type 3A curls and thin hair strands. So, I was going to wait for a couple of more uses with this product, but I just HAD to make this post after using it for the first time because WOW I’M SUPER IMPRESSED! I headed out to buy my usual aussie - Miracle Curls with Coconut Oil Paraben Free Detangling Milk Treatment , but they ran out of stock, and that’s when I stumbled upon this cake - The Curl Friend Defining Curl Cream . After long due diligence, I decided to buy it because it’s vegan (no harsh chemicals, parabens and/or sulfates) and it also won an allure’s best of beauty award in 2019. The packaging is beautiful, and, when I opened it after washing my hair, I couldn’t help but notice the lovely and amazing smell that was coming out of this. It’s definitely sweet, but not overwhelming at all. Once I tried it, I noticed that the cream felt so smooth, silky, & lightweight (great for thin hair strands). It has avocado oil, soybean oil, and shea butter in it! It seems like this is definitely the perfect combination (for now) for my hair. I’ve shied away from butter mostly because it can be too heavy for my thin strands, but I guess that having it in smaller quantities works great. My hair is so SHINY, DEFINED, and VOLUMINOUS, and smells like CAKE. I mean, look at it! I can definitely say that this is my NUMBER 1 defining cream. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, please let me know how it feels if you try it. I am definitely going to try more cake products in the near future after finding this holy grail.

Basic Hair Tips (Part 2)!
Basic Hair Tips (Part 2)!
Hi everyone, I hope that the first post has helped some of you in your hair care journey! Here are some more tips! DO NOT OVERCLEAN YOUR HAIR. This is another hard reality for many people that have curls or coils. Remember how I previously mentioned that the production of bubbles does not mean that your hair is cleaner & that it’s stripping away your natural oils? Well, you also have to be careful to not over wash your hair because TOO MUCH SHAMPOO in your hair, regardless of whether they have sulfates or not, is BAD & DRIES your hair, which, in turn, causes your scalp to produce UNHEALTHY OIL to compensate for the dryness, making it harder for the hair TO STAY HEALTHY WITHOUT ITS NATURAL OILS & TO RETAIN THE MUCH NEEDED MOISTURE. How often you should wash your hair is IMPORTANT & also varies according to HAIR TYPE, so please take the time to do more in-depth research about this. I wash my hair 2 times a week. There are ways to maintain your hair clean without having to wash it EVERYDAY, it is not necessary. That being said, this is probably one of the MOST IMPORTANT TIPS: MOISTURE IS A CURLS’ BEST FRIEND. Having curls automatically means that we tend to have DRYER hair than people with straight hair. It’s science. The shape of our follicles makes it harder for the sebaceous glands to successfully release sebum to lubricate our hair. The more quenchness your hair has, then the more dry it TENDS to be. That doesn’t take away the beauty, it just means that we have to work extra by adding more moisture and shine to our hair. Be aware that level of extra moisture needed VARIES according to hair type and that even though our hair is dryer. ADDING PURE OILS are NOT the solution, CONDITIONER/MOISTURE IS! USE A PRE-SHAMPOO! I can honestly say that adding this step has made it so much SIMPLER to detangle and cleanse my hair. This helps ease prepare the hair for the actual wash, and that has also helped me reduce the amount of shampoo that I use, which is a bonus.  I’ll be posting a set of products that are great in the near future, so be on the lookout! Hope this helps!

How to avoid greasy hair in summer? My secret is...
How to avoid greasy hair in summer? My secret is...
When it comes to summer, many girls with long hair always have oily hair trouble. As a girl who doesn't want to wash hair every day, in this post I'll share my tips for avoiding oily hair. The first thing I would recommend is a scalp scrub. KÉRASTASE - Energizing Scrub: Purifying Scrub for Oily ScalpI believe some girls may know something about scrubs. Our oily hair may come from two conditions. The first condition is that our scalp is not clean and causes our greasy hair. In different cities and work environments where the air is bad or dust is serious, it can make your scalp dirty, and regular shampoos don't work very well. Therefore, it is very necessary to use scalp scrub once or twice a week. I bought Kerastase scalp scrub from Sephora about $40. It's creamy white texture. Remember to apply a scrub and then use the shampoo. The second one that I would recommend is the Schwarzkopf - Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder 10g. It is not only a good thing to use in my daily life, but also a must for going out. If one day you don't want to wash your hair and it's not particularly oily. Then I highly recommend this one. Just a few seconds and a gentle pat on the scalp can make your hair less greasy. It is about $15, also available on Sephora's website. Finally, I'd like to share my summer hair style, as my hair is longer .I mostly use a headband in the summer, or a ponytail and braid. Sometimes a saucy bun, or a stewardess's hairstyle. This will not only make our hair look less oily, but also allow us to change our styles to suit our clothes.

Alcohol free shampoo?? Its a thing!!!
Alcohol free shampoo?? Its a thing!!!
After reading the ingredients on my cantu shampoo/conditioner, I discovered they had different types of alcohol in them. Why??? Just like in skincare, alcohol isnt a necessary ingredient in your hair care, i did some research and found PACIfICA - Pineapple Curls Curl Defining Shampoo and PACIfICA - Pineapple Curls Curl Defining Conditioner they SAVED MY HAIR!! The shampoo has ZERO alcohol in it and the conditioner only has ONE!! Which is so much less than my old cantu and other curly hair products. They also smell AMAZING!! Theyre made with all ORGANIC AND NATURAL INGREDIENTS! I truly love this brand!!
