Happy Labor Day — hope everyone is enjoying a nice BBQ, sunshine, or at the very least a day off of work! (that’s what I’m enjoying!)
Today I’m bringing you a 2-in-1 Fun Find post and it’s all about hair care. Ladies, we all know that shiny, healthy looking hair is one of our top priorities. Unfortunately most of the time, hair that looks like a Pantene commercial is unachievable. I personally have pretty healthy hair, but as I’ve gotten older it has become a little drier — probably due to the daily wash and blow dry and occasional straighten or curl.
For months now, I’ve been reading hair blogs, pinterest links, etc. about how amazing different oils can be for your hair. So in the last few weeks I’ve purchased Organix Moroccan Argan Oil intensive treatment and coconut oil. People seem to complain about how expensive coconut oil is, but I lucked out an found a little container of De La Cruz Coconut Oil in my local CVS for about $2 and the Organix treatment was only about $6 on sale.
Between the two of these products, my hair has been looking fabulous lately. The coconut oil is really intense! If you don’t have extremely dry hair be careful about over doing it — I had to wash my hair 3 times just to get it all out!
Basically my routine has been put coconut oil in my hair about 20 minutes before a shower (only on the bottom — my scalp isn’t dry) and put it into a clip. Theoretically you should put your hair in a shower cap and heat it up with a blow dryer to open up the follicles, but I’m not that dedicated in the morning.
Then instead of using the Organix product as a “treatment” that you wash out, I use a dime-sized dollop and use it as a heat-protectant after my shower and before I blow dry. I focus on putting this underneath my hair where I get some wicked ringlets and at the ends, then use the little bit left over on my hands and run it through the rest of my hair.
Clearly I am not a pro-blogger, as I haven’t taken before and after pictures of my hair, but just trust me that it looks much shinier and feels great!
I’d love to hear what all of you lovely readers do to keep your hair in tip-top shape, so please share in the comments section!!
