How to Achieve Healthier & Softer Hair

Being on so many different medications really messes with my hair. Whether it’s thinning or dry it still make me upset. I always wish to go back to the time when I used to complain I had too much hair and it was too curly-because now its thinner and wavy. In the past three weeks, I have started to use different products for my hair and I’m seeing really great results.

The first product I absolutely love is  Walgreens’ Hair, Skin, and Nails Formula with Biotin and Keratin. I take two of these vitamins a day in the morning. It contains biotin and keratin which are both really great things for your hair. Keratin is a protein found naturally in your hair that protects against stress or damage. Biotin (also called Vitamin B7)  helps nerves, metabolism, and your digestive system along with many other systems. This vitamin also contains other vitamins like A,C,D,E and many many more. I’ve noticed that my hair is much softer and less dry since starting these.

Disclaimer: Always ask your doctor before starting supplements. I am not a doctor, this is just personally advice that has worked for me. 

The next product was suggested by my hairstylist. Its a deep conditioner called Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe. She suggested that I used the treatment 3 times a week for up to an hour. So what I usually do is shampoo and rinse my hair and then get out of the shower. When I get out I use a quarter size amount and place it all over my hair and comb it through, then let it sit for 1 hour and rinse. It smells so good and makes your hair so soft! If you need a deep conditioning treatment then this is a great one!

I have recently changed my shampoo line to Not Your Mother’s Coco Milk & African Marcula Tree Oil High Moisture shampoo, conditioner and smoothing cream. This stuff smells so good, is reasonable in price and makes your hair feel so much better! Note: when washing your hair, try to leave a day in between for your hair’s natural oil to set in its healthy for your hair! 

Heat and color can damage your hair so much, by creating breakage and dryness. In order to avoid this type of damage-try not to bleach your hair too often. Also, try to not use as much heat on your hair or if you have to: use a heat protectant. My favorite heat protectant is Chi 44 Iron Guard. THIS STUFF SMELLS AMAZING AND REALLY HELPS WITH THE SOFTNESS (literally can smell it in my hair while typing this…awk). Divid your hair into sections and spray before applying to heat. This is a lifechanging product for me. I recently found it at TJ Maxx (lovvveeee that store!) for $11.99 but it usually retails at around $18.00 at Ulta or other beauty stores.

I hope whether you’re healthy or not this gives you some insight on how to take care of your hair!!!
