More nature here
Thank you for the compliment :D
The change that made the most difference in my hair was getting lazy. I stopped styling it with heat for 9 months because Mia’s pregnancy completely drained me to where I never felt like doing my hair.. and combining that with taking good prenatals my hair grew 3 inches in 2012.
Even now I use heat maybe 2 times a month and when I do I make sure to use a salon grade heat protectant. The best one I’ve found is the Sebastian Trilliant.
Before getting pregnant though I was on the track to healthier hair by eating right and finding what products my hair responds best to. Everyone’s hair grade is different, so don’t necessarily expect these exact products to work the same for you, but I go between Paul Mitchell and Sebastian shampoos, conditioners, and styling serums simply because my hair seems to “get used to” products after 2 months. Please please please if you typically buy the cheap stuff off a walmart aisle, stop! It’s terrible quality and ruins hair. Dove shampoo for instance, is only 1 ingredient away from Dove soap. That’s why your hair may be hard to brush and will look dull after a week of using it. Salon grade may be more expensive per oz but you use a lot less per hair wash!
I also only wash my hair every other or every 3 days. If my ends start getting dry in between I put a small amount of almond oil on them. If my roots start getting oily quickly I use some baby powder there.
I’d love to start using baking soda for hair care instead of chemicals sometime soon but I’m kind of scared of the first two weeks when my hair may look like a fuzz ball. hah.
