Hi my beauties,
In this post I will give you all the little secrets of my hair routine. First of all girls, we must adopt a regular routine and especially very healthy so NATURAL!
1. Let's start with oils, they must be pure, natural and organic!
To moisturize, nourish and repair my hair, I most often use coconut oil, shea butter, argan oil, avocado oil and sweet almond oil. . You can mix them together or use them alone. So I do a bath of oil once a week (twice if my hair is really dry) that I will leave all night and I wash my hair the next day.
To strengthen and grow my hair, I use castor oil that I apply on my scalp and then I massage my skull using the tips of my fingers for better penetration and good blood circulation which will stimulate hair growth.
When I want to make a deep mask, I mix avocado and one or two oils of my choice with my mask that I leave about 1 hour to 2 hours before washing my hair.
I will give you a little recipe that I use for the hair growth, it’s necessary to apply mixes only on your scalp, massage the skull, leave to pose 1 hour max and then wash the hair. To do once a week. In a bottle I put:
- 10ml vegetable oil of mustard
- 30ml vegetable oil of sapote
- 60ml of vegetable oil of castor
- 17 drops of bay saint thomas essential oil
- 70 drops of essential oil of rosemary to cineole
For hair that is soft and shiny, you need blackcurrant oil and fenugreek oil.
2. The washing!
First of all, I wash my hair every 3 or 4 days. For a big wash after a bath of oil, so only once a week I use a shampoo, a conditioner, and a mask of the same range or same brand and adapted to my hair, I don’t mix products that are not the same range (or brand) simply because some components don’t go together! For my part I use the brand Arganicare, Keune curl control. In soft shampoo for me it's the baby mixa with sheaves.
At the next wash I don’t use shampoo but only my mask so to summarize during the week the first wash I use shampoo + after shampoo + mask. At the 2nd wash so 3 or 4 days after I use just a mask.
Once a month I use rassoul that will scour my scalp and remove all the residue of products that stick to my scalp. It's like keeping a healthy scalp.
For my curly hair, concerning the care without rinse I use the products of the brand Activilong the acticurls range of the order I start with the « crème fouettée », the « gel activateur de boucles » and to finish the « serum activateur de boucle ». These products make me crazy curls !!! I then dry my hair diffuser, and for a good volume I use an afro comb.
To maintain my hair and my curls the following days, I moisten my curls with water with a spray and I put some coconut oil on my tips to moisturize them because the tips of the hair it's one of the most fragile parts.
My beauties I hope that this post has pleased you and can help you! after testing many hair routine, this one is the best for me, I hope it will be for you.
