How I keep my hair healthy and shiny.

This is how I keep my hair looking good on a budget.

My hair is dry, wavy, and thick. I have a routine to keep it healthy, and shiny.

  • First the night before I wash my hair, I put Suave leave in conditioner  and I sleep with it in.
  • Then I wash my hair with any Shampoo and Conditioner advertises as being moisturizing. I make sure that I am rubbing the conditioner in my hair very well with friction. I also turn the water off, and I comb my hair with a pick.
  • Then I put a little bit of hair oil in my hair. I always use heat protector when I use the hair dryer or curling iron. 

Sometimes I put olive oil or coconut oil in my hair as well.

I can get away with washing my hair once a week by using dry shampoo. Only wash your hair when it needs it. I only apply heat to my hair once a week as well. I only blow dry it once a week, and rarely curl it. However, the heat protector helps a lot.

My hair grows really fast. I’m not sure if it is how I can for it or if it’s because of my diet (taking vitamin supplements, and eating protein) or a combination of both.

I find the cheap products work well enough for me. Which is good because I’m on a budget.

Hope this helps! =)

These are pictures of my hair. I cut off more than a foot. I know it will grow back fast, and grow back nice and healthy.

I am about to cut a more than a foot off my long pretty hair. I love my hair but it is driving me crazy. It is so long and thick. I am donating it to Pantene lengths. —–> https://pantene.com/en-us/beautiful-lengths.

I’m on vacation, I am going to organize my house, and get rid of all the junk. I am throwing a lot of junk away in my life. It’s a fresh start materialistically, and spiritually. Life is constantly changing and so are we. That is why we can improve for the better. I am going to simplify my life, and find peace. I am shedding things in life that are weighing me down, and ready to better myself. I want to go back to work more organized.

I felt pretty with long hair, but I need to be authentic with myself, I don’t need to hide behind my hair to be pretty. I am letting go of it. What are some things that you need to let go of in your life? What is weighing you down in life, that you need to get rid of? Do you have “junk” that needs to be thrown away?

I need to quit thinking negatively.

There is a study that says clutter makes one depressed. I believe that study. Clutter is stressful, let’s simplify, and get rid of things that are weighing us down.
