Okay okay.... so you watched my video (link in bio) and you are still unsure about what you should actually get?!? Well let me help you! These products are really a must for me. There are different brands, some will work for you some won't. But you need at least one of each in my opinion.
1) Shampoo/Cleanser, a sulfate free one preferably, it will cleanse your hair without drying it out. You won't get the harsh squeaky clean feeling.
2) If you dont follow any of my tips... at least deep condition! Lol. It will get your hair moisturized And will help also help with detAngling. It's also one wAy to nourish your hair And mAke it grow healthier.
3) so you are done washing your hair... feels dry? Well a leave-in, will keep your moisture level up, you don't have to rinse it out and will help with styler.
4) A styler is basically a thicker leave in conditioner, that will help your style stay longer, will also moisturize the hair
5) An oil, multi-purpose! You can use it as a pre-poo, shine serum, scalp soother you nAme it! Lol
6) A gel, its optional but, I personally use a gel to lay my edges down (mostly while #transitioning to #NaturalHair), or I add it after my styler for more hold!
There you have it! Any questions? Slide in my DM i'd be happy to help!
"Stop Trimming Your Hair Without a Plan"
We all should know by now that trimming your hair regularly is necessary for healthy hair to grow. But did you know there is a right and wrong way to do it? I’m not talking about the act of trimming itself. I’m referring to how your trims relate to your long-term hair care goals. You shouldn’t aimlessly trim your hair without a specific goal in mind. Before we dig into the different trim schedules you should follow, let’s first refresh our memories with a little Hair Care 101.
The average person’s hair grows half an inch a month. This is a fact that is totally independent of how much or how little you trim your hair. It is a myth that trimming your hair makes it grow faster. Instead, we trim our hair to maintain its health. Our styling choices often cause split ends that slowly climb up the hair shaft.
Trimming proactively stops split ends before they start. However, if you trim your hair too often, not often enough, too little, or too much, you will not see the results that you want. Make your trims more effective by trimming your hair based on your hair care goals.
Goal: Maintain the current length, health, and/or style of your hair
Since your hair grows half an inch every month, you will want to trim your hair half an inch every four to six weeks. This will maintain the current length of your hair and its current hairstyle. If your hair is healthy, trimming it at this rate and this amount will keep any budding split ends at bay and keep your ends always looking healthy and even. You may think that you can forgo trimming your hair since it is healthy, but inevitably, damage from styling will wreak havoc on the health of your hair. Keep your hair trimmed, so it never gets to that point.

Think this fro needs to be tamed soon 😯 I'm getting frustrated trying to style it where I don't look like I'm trapped in the 80s 🎸🎮 (although I appreciate looking like my mom - but maybe mom circa 2000 instead 💃)
(Confession: the frequent reminders to get a haircut & that I look better as a blonde is also wearing me down. So maybe it's time to pull the rip chord 👩🏻✂️👩🏼)
The tools you use in your hair journey are really important. They can literally make or break your journey. If you don't use the right comb or brush your hair will break. I personally comb my hair to much. I try to detangle only on wash day. But I notice that I prefer to comb my hair every morning too. × wide tooth comb: this I my favorite it doesn't break your hair as much as a normal comb will do. It makes detangling so much easier. Especially on wash day with a good conditioner.
×soft brush: I use this brush to create sleek hair styles. It's a perfect brush to make a bun or to lay down your edges. I also use it after air drying my hair. I put my hair in two low buns and make sure that the front is really sleek. This way my hair will be straight the next day and I don't have to use a flat iron.
Ps. Sorry for not posting that much. I've been really busy lately. Will try to post more soon! 😘
