Today I want to share with you guys some updates on how I’ve transformed my hair the last few months. I have not always been proud of my hair, it was not until about 2 years ago that I started to really care for my hair and have seen a genuine improvement in my hair health. I have tried so many different shampoos, hair masks, and everything. One thing that I learned is that it’s important to buy quality products.
I found some awesome supplements and products to protect and grow my hair! I am totally committed to keeping my hair strong and healthy and I won’t ever torture my hair with bleach again. I used to color my hair out of a box every 3 weeks, bright blonde, like Gwen Stefani… I have seen my hair grow back in the places that it has fallen out and that alone is validation that I am doing the best thing for my hair right now.
Secret #1: Supplements and Vitamins
Zhou nutrition is my most trusted source for vitamins, and the hairfluence is the highest rated hair growth supplement! It works so good! It targeted nutrient system will help improve hair skin and nails! I noticed after only a few weeks how much more hydrated my skin looked and my nails are super strong, I was able to change from acrylic to dip nails and they last without breaking.
Secret #2: Extensions
I realized that my hair really IS growing back! HairDreams USA extensions has been in my hair for about 6 months. The Hairdreams extensions bond to a few strands of hair and do not pull or damage the hair, they grow out as time goes on, or your stylist can remove them for you in the salon.
Totally proves that hair extensions can help grow you hair and supplements totally help make hair stronger and healthier. My hair care regimen has improved alot now that I am caring for my HairDreams USA hair extensions. You can read all about my hair extensions HERE.
Secret #2: Using The Right Products in the shower
My hair needs to be brushed often, which is actually like 3 times a day LOL. Using products that are approved for hair extensions is also a smart way to go. Suzie at Salon Beaucage in Boston gave me the HairDreams hair care set to use. So I use that every time I wash my hair. My shampoo routine is this. start with dirty hair wash with purple shampoo and a hydrating purple mask like the ones that I have from Kerastase. Theyre so good, not as harsh as the shimmer lights, but it is just as effective. I used shimmer lights back in my Gwen days and my hair was so dry from it. I start the week with that system and I will wear my hair straight for a day. Then curl it the next. I wont wash it again until day 3. That time I was my hair with Kerastase hydrating shampoo and conditioning mask. I will follow the same straight, curl wash routine… So I go back and forth between purple and hydrating… I do not see a reason to use the purple product all the time….
Secret #3: Keeping My Color Alive and Protected
Better than anything I have tried at protecting my hair while styling is the Chi thermal protect system. The iron guard is the perfect step for before blow drying or curling. I spray a generous amount of this all over my hair before it touches heat. I also upgraded my blow dryer to a new Chi, and it has blue light technology. It adds ions during drying and I am seeing an improvement in my hair’s shine using that blow dryer for sure. on days I want extra sign I use the shine booster spray, its a nice light mist. oooo works soooo good! way better than a serum.
Whenever I need volume I put in volumizer Spray from Briogeo and add volume back to my hair by sectioning the top and heating it with a round brush… I can film a tutorial of this for you on IGTV. After I use the volumizing powder on the crown area and style it with my curling wand. I finish by brushing my curls out and spraying with hair spray to hold.
Bonus secret #4:
SPF and avoid pool water! It might seem silly or overboard…. but it doesnt take much to damage delicate hair…. one dip in the pool without rinsing afterwards can do so much damage. Also a day in the sun can strip hair of nutrients and cause damage too. I love hats, visors and I always spray SPF in my hair especially on my part, because ouch those sunburns fricken hurt!!
