I have a bit of a love hate relationship with my hair. I like that its super thick but it takes so long to style, it can be difficult to manage and it gets knotty so easily.
To be honest I hate doing anything with hair. I hate curling it, I hate styling it, washing it even bores me but I do try and take care of my hair, especially as I used to bleach it.
I brush my hair twice a day and at night I take a good ten minutes just going through my hair with a wooden brush to distribute the natural oils through my hair and to make sure its knot free.
Once a week I use an oil treatment on my hair. I alternate between coconut oil and argan oil or I mix them both together. I start by sectioning my hair and apply a generous amount to the end of each hair section and use a comb ( a very cheap one I might add) to run it through each strand. Once I’ve covered all my hair I massage my scalp for about 5 minutes to promote hair growth and keep my roots nice and healthy.I leave the oil on for at least an hour before I rinse it off.
I wash my hair 2-3 times a week and I’m currently using this coconut shampoo and conditioner from Holland and Barrats which I like because it contains coconut oil and makes my hair nice and soft and smells lovely.
I try not to use any heat on my hair , I never blow dry it and will only curl it if I’m going on a night out or going somewhere special. Usually I will put a curl cream through it then either put it in plaits or pin curl it.
What’s your hair care routine?
