Treating Dry Frizzy Hair

Sep. 28, 2020
Hair can be difficult.
Dry, curly hair in a dry environment can feel like an uphill battle. Frizz and flyaways are inevitable.
This is of my hair two-three days after a wash or a Before picture.

You can see it's frizzy and dry, but still well-loved.
My Dry Hair Routine
I usually only wash my hair two-three times a week, I have dry skin and live in a dry climate so it is practical for me.
After washing my hair, I dry it gently and leave it pretty damp.

A dime-size amount of both these wonder products are massaged through my hair starting at the back ends and moving upward.
Don't apply to your scalp, your hair will be flat and look dirty.
TANGLE TEEZERThe Ultimate Detangler
This is the only brush that I use on wet hair. Fallout and damage are minimal compared to other brushes I have used in the past.
After brushing, I typically braid my hair to ensure that all the product that I used stays on to do its job.
I highly recommend this next brush,
BriogeoVegan Boar Bristle Hair Brush
Every night, my partner brushes my hair out with this brush.
This brush pulls the skin and oils down your hair, away from your scalp which means:
  • Less washing
  • Less product usage
  • Happy hair!
Here is a comparison for the first photo of my hair:

1) It is still damp
2) It really wants to be frizzy.
But it isn't.
What Causes Dry Hair?
1. First and worst is excessive washing.
It strips the scalp, skin, and hair of natural oils which can cause damage to the Acid Mantle which leads to dry hair, irritation, inflammation, acne, and others.
2. Next up is Sun damage.
The best defense is wearing a hat and using sunscreen! Your hair can be burnt by the Sun.
3. Incorrect use of products and/or tools
What does this mean?
  • Curling/straightening your hair obsessively or every day
  • Not using heat protective products.
  • Dyeing, dyeing, and redyeing.
  • Bleaching, just don't do it.
  • Not Conditioning.
How to fix it?
Take a messy bun break regularly or find a dependable updo.
  • Stop using heat on your hair, wait until you have a protectant.
  • Stop dyeing your hair, find something less permanent and damaging that works for you.
  • ONLY let a professional Hair Colorist touch your hair with bleach.
  • Condition your hair. It will thank you.
  • Keep a braid in while you sleep if practical.
3. Diet and Exercise
Not eating what your body needs can cause decreases in health for all areas of your body.
Bodily health shows through things such as our hair, skin, nails, and eyes just like it does with weight, height, and girth.

Post-Partum Hair Loss/Excessive Hair Shedding
Caused by a huge change in hormones after birth, it is normal.
But if you are uncomfortable try:
  • Switch your Conditioner to a lighter weight.
  • Play with new hairstyles, hair wraps, or hats.
  • Getting a new hair cut, talk to your stylist beforehand so they know what you want to avoid.
  • Reach out to other new moms nearby.
  • Schedule and make time for taking care of yourself, extra stress rarely helps.

I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!!

This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
