After nineteen years on this planet, I have learned a thing or two about my hair. I have wrestled with it, hated it, and loved it. I have had very long hair, a shaved side, and once a practically shaved head.
I'm on the long journey of growing it out again, so I have been paying quite a bit of attention to it, and wanted to write a blog post about all everything I have learned when it comes to hair.
// Washing //
A lot of people wash their hair too much. They wash it like every other day or even every day. I don't know how they do it because as soon as I wash my hair more than twice a week it starts getting oily, frizzy, fragile, and just not pretty.
But of course if I wash it less than once a week it looks just gross. So there's a balance we all have to find in washing our hair, but the products you use can also influence how much you need to wash your hair.
I use a clarifying shampoo that gently removes dirt and oil without stripping my hair. Because I have fine hair and love lots of volume, I generally go for a conditioner that is gentle and nourishing, but that will also help with volume.
For styling, I use just one product. The dry shampoo from Acure Organics is my multi purpose product that's just brilliant. It easily removes excess oil, reviving my hair. It also adds lots of volume and texture, so it's a one stop shop for perfect, effortless styling.
