Hair Routine for Sleek Shine
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!

Sephora Best & “Meh”: Hair Products
About my hair: very thick, wavy/curly, & prone to dryness & frizziness Fave: IGK - Good Behavior 4-in-1 Prep Spray This is a recent addition to my collection and came in an Influenster box. It claims to detangle, fight frizz, prevent heat damage, & add shine. spray on damp hair post-wash, comb through, and wrap my hair for about 30 min in a cotton t-shirt. This stuff gives me the sleekest + shiniest blowout with NO additional products. I’ve never had one product do that. Most other blow dry sprays require me to also use a smoothing cream. I have used this as a leave-in for air drying or diffusing & it leaves my hair soft. Has a sweet “salon”-type scent, all hair types can use. This will be a repurchase. $27 Meh: Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Biotin Dry Shampoo This contains tapioca, charcoal, rice powder, witch hazel, & biotin. It’s a powder that is dispensed by turning the nozzle & gently squeezing the bottle. Cool concept because it’s more easily recyclable. While this does soak up excess oils & makes my hair look cleaner on day 3/4/5, I don’t like how heavy it feels and my hair feels...gross. Light rose/perfume scent, all hair types can use. Gifted by brand - wouldn’t repurchase. $24 Fave: Bumble and bumble. - Bb. Curl Reactivator This spray is designed to restore moisture definition for curly/wavy hair the next day & beyond. It contains avocado, jojoba, & coconut oils, and shea & cocoa butters. I’ve played around with this a few times (including dry hair), and found it works best for me when I dampen my hair about 15-20% with water, then spray liberally and scrunch lightly. It does add some moisture and revives my wave/curl pattern. It does leave me a bit frizzy, though. Has a “salon”-type scent. Will repurchase on sale. $28 Meh: OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector This is a bond-restoring treatment to strengthen & improve hair appearance. I’ve only tried this once, but based on others’ reviews I expected to be blown away at 1st use. I applied the cream to damp, towel-dried, unwashed hair & waited about 12 min. My hair didn’t feel or look any different post-wash. Maybe my bar was set too high? Also, I would fly through this product because a full size is only 3.3oz. So far I’m not wowed but will try this again. Mine was a Sephora freebie & I will have to cut the tube open to get 2 uses. Light perfume scent, all hair types can use. $28 All brands are cruelty-free & products are safe for color-treated hair. Briogeo & Olaplex are part of the “clean at Sephora” program since they are sulfate and paraben-free. The Sephora VIB/holiday sale is coming up soon (I think 10/30?), so this would be a great time to try something new or restock on faves. #CheriePartner

My hair savoir - OLAPLEX No 3! Can't live without it!
My hair savoir - OLAPLEX No 3! Can't live without it!
I guess some of you may not know how to test hair porosity. I've searched online and find the method. About hair porosity Hair can be classed as having low, medium (normal), or high porosity One involves dropping a strand of your hair into a glass or bowl of water (no need to pull any hair out, one that’s been shed naturally on your hairbrush is just fine!). If your hair stays floating on top, it has low porosity. If it sinks a bit after several minutes, it has normal porosity. If it sinks immediately, it has high porosity. Products Recommendation I have high porosity hair. My hair is always dry and frizzy. Recently, I used a product that really surprised me  - OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector This cream has nearly 2,000 reviews on Sephora. Its main effect is to repair and strengthen damaged hair. It is suitable for all hair types.  Personal use method Step1 Wet the lower part of the hair and dry it slightly with a towel. Step 2 Apply thick layer of the cream, and tie a bun with a hair scrunchy. Step3 After 1 to 2 hours, wash it off, just like how you wash off your shampoo. I will not apply it to the scalp directly, but this is just my personal choice. My personal feeling After the first use, my hair was softer, butI didn't see the obvious change. After the fifth use (half bottle): my hair is shiny. In the past, even if I got up the next day after blowing dry my hair, I would still have frizzy hair. However, after half bottle was used up, dry and brittle hair didn't bother my anymore. It cost about $28. It is more expensive than normal haircare products, but worth the money. Personally, I am very willing to spend more time and money on hair care products. Recommend it to everyone!

No. 3 Hair Perfector
OLAPLEX-No. 3 Hair Perfector
I just tried OLAPLEX Nº 0 & Nº 3 🤷🏻‍♀️
I just tried OLAPLEX Nº 0 & Nº 3 🤷🏻‍♀️
☁️This 2-part treatment system takes 20+ minutes. You do it on dry hair before you shampoo & condition. First you saturate your hair with Nº 0, wait 10 minutes, don’t rinse, then add Nº 3 & leave on for an additional 10+ minutes. Nº 3 can be used alone, but Nº 0 is meant to be used only as a precursor for Nº 3. I originally bought this for my bf’s heavily damaged hair, but he’s so lazy about using anything😑 So finally we made it happen. My hair isn’t currently damaged from bleach like it used to be, however, because I have a neurological disease, some days I’m in so much pain, tossing & turning in bed all day, I pull my hoodie over my head & use a heating pad on it. Days like this my thick hair becomes a wreck. Swipe for photos. I definitely get a lot of breakage around my hairline, I’m so over it lol, I’ve got silk pillowcases coming in the mail💤💌 I picked a “bad hair day” like this from the other day after my flareup calmed down to try this 2-part treatment system for you guys. I’m aware that no hair treatment can make a strand of hair full length again once it’s snapped short... I was more curious to see what this treatment could do for my bf’s hair. He washes it waaay too much because he thinks it’s dirty due to his job, which gives his hair tons of sun damage. I was mortified when he told me he washes it twice a day! Don’t do this! It strips away your natural oils! His hair is so brittle & dry! OLAPLEX - No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment Kit $28/5.2 of Nº 0 + 1 oz of Nº 3 Everyone seems to be raving about Olaplex products, so I had my hopes set pretty high. This may be an unpopular opinion, but this treatment didn’t impress me much. I have to use sooo much product for my hair & it’s only shoulder length. My hair is extremely thick, I’m no stranger to using extra product, but this was a little ridiculous. I used almost the entire full size Nº 0 & every last drop of the sample size Nº 3. The amount I used on my bf was quite little. His hair is very thin & only like 4-5” long. OLAPLEX - No.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment $28/5.2 oz He thought I was using a lot, because the nozzle dispenses so slowly (which is good I guess because the consistency is like water) but the level only went down about a half inch. Not really any scent. I found it so time consuming to do this step myself. The applicator made me feel like I was in highschool using box dye. I actually transferred it to an empty (& clean) Briogeo spray bottle because I was so frustrated. It dispensed it a lot faster, but still be very careful. I had a cut on finger & it burned really bad, so don’t get it in your eyes! OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector $28/3.3 oz Similar to typical hair conditioner in texture/consistency/scent-easy to apply. THE RESULTS: His hair: still fried This just wouldn’t be feasible for my hair considering I emptied a $28 bottle for 1 use. Hair was soft after nothin special.

How I keep my hair color looking great!
How I keep my hair color looking great!
Hair maintenance is an overall investment, and you should treat it no different than any other thing you invest in. When you leave a salon you have to remember what was started there needs to be finished with proper product and tactics at home. I wrote up some tips of what I do at home to keep my hair color maintained between trips to the salon. 1. Don't wash your hair so often. I know this is hard to hear for many girls. This wasn't easy for me either. I used to wash my hair everyday, and was sucking the life out of it. I generally wash my hair 1-2 days a week, and invested in a great dry shampoo to help assist with any unwanted odor and oil between washes. I use IGK - Direct Flight Multi-Tasking Matcha Dry Shampoo for my dry shampoo. IGK brand has a variety of dry shampoos which I like and that are based off of oil level instead of one size fits all. They range from light all the way to heavy! 2. When washing your hair use the right products! You just went to the salon and spent $200 on your hair color and cut, and now you are washing it with a $5 shampoo full of sulfites and parabens. You might as well have just flushed your money down the toilet. It's blunt but it's true. Sulfites and parabens are used in a lot of beauty products to help get rid unwanted bacteria and dirt. They do this by opening the cuticle in the hair and not only stripping the moisture but the color that goes with it. Now I am not saying to go buy the most expensive shampoo and conditioner on the market, but I am saying buy one that is trusted by your salon and is going to help keep your hair healthy. You'll also find when minimizing your washes that you'll burn through less product so that higher price point shampoo and conditioner will also last longer. For my blondes, I suggest using a purple-based shampoo and conditioner but remember, not every purple based shampoo and conditioner can be used with every wash! Some of them are more intense with the toner and can actually make your hair purple. Find one that works for every wash. Since I just have highlights and baby lights I simply just invest in a purple conditioner. If you are curious what products I use on my hair I use R+Co - DALLAS Biotin Thickening Shampoo andR+Co - Sunset Blvd Blonde Conditioner . Although I mix and match my shampoos and conditioners, they also come as a pair. I also use OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector once a week to help maintain moisture. It seals the cuticles and makes my hair flexible for styling while protecting it! 3. Prime! Use a primer on your hair after washing it. Use one that has a UV protection in it. This helps the hair color stand up to the sun and heat damage. Heat damage causes color to fade so having a barrier there prevents this. I use R+Co - One Prep Spray Not only does it keep my hair color looking fab, it moisturizes, detangles and makes it smell great!
