life changing hair products!
hi everyone! to preface this post, i have been seriously struggling with my hair for a very long time. as you can see in the photo to the top right, i have awful scalp psoriasis and sudden hair loss/thinning that makes my hair absolutely unbearable. i have had to get used to being in so much pain and discomfort at all times, and finally within the last few months, i have begun the pursuit toward more manageable hair. it is clear from the lack of dandruff or scabbing AND subtle hair regrowth shown in the bottom right photo that i have made an amazing amount of progress. while it’s not perfect, i can include my current hair care routine down below so hopefully someone else can get the same relief! the night before a shower, i will usually apply either the #Lush Cosmetics - H’suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment[products]#[FourStars] which makes my hair SO SOFT or i wet my hair and apply OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector which feels very reparative even though i don’t have awful damage. regardless on which i am using that night, i will cover my hair with a durag and don’t rinse out until my shower in the morning. when in the shower, i first use my #Lush Cosmetics - Soak and Float Shampoo Bar[products]#[FiveStars] which is the one of the only shampoos i’ve found that actually somewhat helps my dandruff and it’s NATURAL. not to mention the bar legitimately lasts forever. after lathering and rinsing with my scalp massager, i then apply Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo and lather and rinse the same way. i then apply my #Lush Cosmetics - Veganese Conditioner[products]#[FourStars] which i leave in for as long as possible or until i’m done doing everything else in the shower. after getting out of the shower i apply Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream and Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Rosarco Milk Leave-in Conditioning Spray which feel, smell and make my hair absolutely amazing. i then blow dry my hair upside down and wait until it’s almost entirely dry before brushing with my Wet brush - Original Detangler . lastly, at the end of each night i apply The Ordinary - Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density focussing around my hairline and spray a bit of an oil mixture that a friend created for me. i then massage my scalp with the scalp massager and every once and a while i’ll apply caster oil focusing on my ends. i know i completely went overboard and this is way more products than any one person needs but i have found my hair has completely transformed within the last few months and it feels amazing! ps. if anyone has any recommendations that help with faster growth please let me know! with all of this progress it has made me realize how slowly my hair is growing (like literally an inch or two in over two years). thank you so much!! 🤍
Hair Care Essentials!
Hi Everyone! So I wanted to make a post on my hair care routine on the days that I do wash my hair because it has helped my hair so much as opposed to my old routine which was the customized shampoo and conditioner that either dried out my hair or my scalp or both. This is such an important time of the year to make sure our hair gets all the right care it needs because the air is so dry. So... let’s begin! First, before I get into the shower I use my Wet brush - Original Detangler to get out all the loose hairs so I don’t have as much of an issue in the shower. Next, in the shower I rinse my hair with just water and then start my shampoo process. I use a few finger globs of the Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo and rub it in with my fingers first. Then before I rinse it out I use the Briogeo - Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager to better massage it in my hair. I love it because it really gets the shampoo into my scalp and the shampoo foams so nicely and feels wonderful in my hair. After the shampoo and massager, I rinse it out and next I use the Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner which is great with everything combined but the one downside is it doesn’t feel like it’s actually conditioning my hair. You really have to brush it with a comb in the shower in order to spread it all through your hair. But hey, it does the job. Rub that in for about a minute and rinse out. When I get out of the shower, I use (second picture) this microfiber hair towel to soak up all the water fast. I couldn’t find it as a product on this site but I got it on amazon for cheap and it does wonders to the drying process of my hair. I would say it’s just as good as the fancier hair towels. Once my hair gets a little dryer but still damp, I part my hair so my scalp is shower in the areas I get dandruff the most and add a few drops of the Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Serum right onto the skin and massage it in with my fingers. Next I spray the dpHUE - Apple Cider Vinegar Leave-in Hair Therapy onto my hair generously and brush it through again with my wet brush. After that’s all said and done, I put my hair into a braid and let it air dry. Right now it’s in the process of drying but later I will add the final look to the post. I’m very excited about this new hair care routine and I think it’s doing wonders to my hair and scalp! ✨

Where are my blonde babes at? 👀💜
Hello, lovelies! As promised... another favorite hair item for my blonde babes! Purple shampoo is a MUST for at home care to keep blondes bright☀️ and happy😊. I always highly suggest and recommend my blondes take home a professional purple shampoo because it isn't going to have wax, which causes buildup and lots of breakage, and it also has a ton of pigment to actually tone the hair! What I LOVE about this shampoo from Matrix Biolage is it has purple 💜AND💙 blue tones in it. Their biolage line is also mostly natural based ingredients! I LOVE the whole Biolage line! Matrix hair care in general is amazing and a top seller in our salon! This purple shampoo will NOT dry out the hair and pairs perfectly with the MATRIX - Biolage Colorlast Conditioner ! You could also alternate it with the regular Colorlast-Color-Protecting-Shampoo for a perfect color protecting routine for your blonde hair! It will also keep it super soft and healthy, especially when paired with a great leave in conditioner such as MATRIX - Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Hair Treatment (see a previous post on my page) You should only use purple shampoo every other wash at the least and also squeeze out as much water as possible before applying the purple shampoo. BE GENEROUS with it! You want it to tone your hair, so don't be shy with it! Keep it in your hair at LEAST 3-5 minutes! Give your hair time to absorb the pigment! Rinse your hair in cool water, or the coolest you can stand. it will help seal in those purple/blue pigments! Also, when you apply your conditioner apply it from midstrands to the ends! Keep a Wet brush - Wet Original Brush in the shower and brush your hair out with the conditioner in it! this will greatly reduce the risk of breakage! Be sure to check out my page to see other hair products! Comment if there is any specific products you're curious about! ￼Instagram: hair.by.chey_ MATRIX - Biolage Colorlast Purple Shampoo 👈 purple shampoo! (I DO NOT OWN THIS PHOTO)
How I keep my long hair healthy!
Some background on my hair: My hair is naturally straight. I naturally have dirty blonde hair and I used to get highlights up until about 5/6 years ago. I now dye my hair to the color seen in the pictures above. I do not dye my hair very often, but damage can occur with dyeing in general, so keeping my hair healthy is important to me! it's a 10 haircare - Leave-In Conditioner Spray Product I use this product almost everytime I wash my hair (I alternate between this and olaplex). This keeps my hair soft, smooth, and moisturized. I love it! OLAPLEX - No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme this product has saved my hair from breakage and has made my hair super strong. You just need to be careful not to use too much because when I do it feels like I didn’t wash all the conditioner out of my hair. This product is amazing!! MOROCCANOIL - Moroccanoil Treatment this oil keeps my hair moisturized and shiny. I have used a lot of hair oils in the past and I’ve always come back to this one! JOSIE MARAN - 100% Pure Argan Oil I don’t wash my hair very often (only about 3 times a week to prevent over stripping). The night before it’s time to wash my hair I put a good amount of this stuff through my hair and sleep with it in. After I wash it out, I really do feel my hair is softer and shinier. Wet brush - Wet Original Brush I have used wet brushes for a while now and I really do think they make a difference. Hair tends to break off the most when it’s wet, so it’s important to be careful. These brushes are great at getting out tangles and making sure the hair stays healthy. Tips: -I try not to use too much heat on my hair, which really does make a difference -I trim my hair about every 4/5 months (only the very ends) to make sure my hair looks nice at the ends -I use silk pillow cases which help prevent breakage -I use hair towel turbans because towels can be stripping and cause breakage -use a hair mask once a week -use a scalp brush in the shower twice a week (helps get dry shampoo out of my roots and exfoliates). Of course everyone’s hair is different and not all products work for every hair type! These are just the products that have helped me reach my hair goals of having healthy, strong, and shiny hair! I hope this was helpful :)
Have Wavy&Thick Hair? These 2 Brushes To Get Healthy Shiny Hair😍😍
I have lots of hair, so it's a pain to brush and dry my hair. I also dyed my hair a couple of times. So I need a nice brush to detangle my matted hair. I love those brushes that can easily reach my scalp. It massages my scalp, which can effectively prevent hair loss. It is also great for blood flow. So brushing your hair well is super important! I want to share two of my favorite brushes. I leave one at home, and take the other one with me when I go out. AVEDA - Wooden Paddle Brush This one looks huge, but honestly it's not hard to use at all. I can brush my hair thoroughly within a few times. My hair is wavy, and I like the frizziness it brings. This brush can reach my scalp easily. My scalp feels comfortable when I use this brush to brush my hair. Wet brush - Detangling Brush This one is tiny. It basically fits into every bag. And it doesn't use up too much space. Although it is small in size, it has a great design! I love using it. It feels so great. I also use it to brush my bands. My hair looks perfect after I brush it. That's all I want to share. Remember to brush your hair every day!
Beachy Waves in 3 Easy Steps 🌊
You know that amazing natural wave your hair gets after a long day at the beach? Well you can recreate the look at home in 3 simple steps, sans the sand ;) ☀️ Step 1. Start with damp hair and gently detangle hair using a wet brush like the Wet brush - Go Green Infused Tea Tree Brush For added detangling, try an affordable yet effective detangler like Suave - Kids Purely Fun Detangler Spray  to add moisture and condition Step 2. Use a wave spray that contains sea salt like sun bum - Texturizing Sea Spray this will help add texture and hold and create that messy beach wave that you're trying to achieve. *Bonus points if it actually smells like coconut and sun tan lotion like this one! 😍 Step. 3 Seal frizz and add shine with a light weight hair oil like Love Perpetua Shine Drops by Evo. This will keep your waves soft instead of crunchy and give your hair a brilliant healthy shine. ✨
Quarantine Glowup: Hair Rehab 🌺
With not having to leave the house everyday, now is the perfect time to give your hair a much-needed break from heat and styling! The first step for getting your hair back to its healthiest state is to use a sulfate-free shampoo that does not strip your hair of its natural oils. Follow up with conditioner like you normally would, and of course give it a blast of cold water at the end to seal the cuticle and help prevent damage. Next, use a microfiber towel to gently wrap your hair on top of your head to dry. I leave it up like this while I do my post-shower skincare. After a few minutes, gently squeeze (don’t rub!!) your hair in the towel and unwrap it. Take a wide toothed comb and gently detangle your hair. This is when I put a small amount of styling spray, my Ouai Wave Spray, throughout my hair and scrunch with my hands! Then I just let it air dry, don’t apply any heat! This should leave your hair soft but with volume and movement. Then before bed, spray dry shampoo at the roots. I really like to use Living Proof’s Dry Shampoo. On dark hair it does appear white, but it soaks in overnight. Putting the dry shampoo in your hair BEFORE it gets dirty really works better than trying to soak up grease that is already there! I have really been trying to go 4-5 days in between my showers, which is SO much longer than usual! A lot of people believe that you can “train” your hair to become less greasy over time if you stretch out the days in between washes, so I am trying this out while I don’t have anywhere to be! Something else that helps your hair to be healthier is to take a boar bristled brush and brush it from the roots of your hair down to the ends, which helps distribute your hair’s natural oils to dryer parts of your hair. Just power through a few weeks of dirty hair and you’ll be on the way to low-maintenance locks in no time!
Wetbrush VS. Tangle Teezer, both $14, Guess Which Wins!👩🦰👩🦳👩
My husband doesn't like TANGLE TEEZER - Compact Styler Detangling Hair Brush. He thinks it feels uncomfortable in his hands. So I bought tWet brush - Teal Swirl Detangler. After using it for a couple of days, I am in love! I gonna compare the 2 drugstore brushes in this review. I have long, thick, wavy hair that tangles easily. The Wet Brush is amazing, and you can even call it "magical."👍👍👍 As it claims, you can use it for both dry and wet hair. It can detangle my matted hair without causing pain. It doesn't cause harm to the hair as well. I can brush my hair thoroughly. The design of the Wet Brush is counterintuitive. Its bristles are softer and more flexible than bristles on standard brushes. The Wet Brush makes quick work of even the biggest knots and really does detangle my hair – wet or dry – quickly and painlessly. But there’s a downside😢😢😢: after several months of use, those magical bristles began to fall out, until the brush simply wasn’t effective anymore. As for Tangle Teezer, which seems to be the Wet Brush’s main competitor, it's a completely different shape than the Wet Brush. It has no handle but is formed to fit comfortably in your hand. The bristles are stiffer than the Wet Brush bristles, and they don’t have the same ball tip. They also alternate between long and short bristles. In my case, TT brush isn't good for wet hair like Wet brush as the latter has a harder comb. It simply does not get through the knots and tangles, certainly not any better than a regular brush. Also, I don't like the way the brush felt in our hand and I much prefer having a handle. So in terms of detangling ability, the Wet Brush wins. But durability is an issue, if you plan to buy a Wet Brush, know that you may need to replace it sooner than you would like. No brush is perfect for everyone. Tangle Teezer might be ideal for other kinds of hair. For us, the Wet Brush is still the best option, but I will be keeping my eyes open for an equally effective but longer-lasting substitute.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Hairbrush😍😍😍
Hi sis, do you know the importance of brushing your hair? If you brush your hair correctly, you can get a natural shine and get out the knots. At the same time, you can stimulate your scalp, thereby increasing blood circulation to your scalp and bringing oxygen and nutrients to the hair stem. So today, I want to share with you how to choose the right brush! I will introduce several different kinds of hairbrushes. I hope this is helpful. Many of you must have this kind of hair brushes. It can quickly detangle your hair without causing a huge pain. It has a flat, wide, and rectangular surface that allows the brush to move the way you want, and it can smooth your hair without breaking the natural pattern of wavy and curly hair. One of my favorites is REVLON - Straight & Smooth Paddle Hair Brush. This is a perfect brush when you are in a rush. The holes on the back allow air to pass through during blow dry, so it can speed up the process. You can try brushes like Wet brush - Black Flex Dry Brush 3. Teasing Brush It can add volume to your hair. It can help you to add texture to ponytails and create a firm base at the roots when clipping in hair extensions. If your hair is fragile, don't use this brush. I recommend REVLON - Moonlight Teasing Brush It has a long and skinny end, so it can part the hair in precise, clean sextions. It can also be used for backcombing your hair. You can find a bunch online or in drugstores. If you are interested in reading more about choosing hairbrushes, leave a comment! 😘
get the samples. gel is worth the hold!
it's another wash day which means new products to try. I've been fairly committed to Act+Acre - Mini Cleanse + Conditioner the last few washes. always remember to 1 shake the product and 2 shampoo twice. a little goes a long way. Emulsify!!!!! after shampooing twice (I used MIELLE - Moisture RX Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner and MIELLE - Honey & Ginger Styling Gel in my last wash which did not pass the water soluble test. this means it is probably causing build up on my hair) I conditioned and detangled with my Wet brush - Wetbrush Shower Flex next I tried my SAMPLES JESSICURL. - Rockin' Ringlets Styling Potion gives great slip. you do need to ratook the sample. after all it is a small amount but the sample packet was enough to fully cover my head. I made sure to to 4 big sections and make sure I got it in there. gives great slip. I then used my #behairful - the professional detangler[products]#[FiveStars] to comb through sections for great definition I used my sample of JESSICURL. - Spiralicious Styling Gel which has a flax seed gel consistency. I was able to get about 3 quarter size amounts out the sample that u used the praying hands method to massage in. I scrunched in the last quarter size amount throughout my hair wet plopped for about 10 to 15 minutes in a shower cap I intended on diffusing but work meetings pulled me away and by the time I picked my the blow dryer, most of my hair formed a cast. but I diffused a bit nonetheless and I've posted pictures of my day 3 hair. any suggestions or recommendations?
