Hair, Hair & Some More Hair!

For me personally, my hair is very important. I am so caught up on trying to find ways to make it longer, thicker, healthier and so on. Whenever a new product comes out that claims to "repair" your hair, you can bet I am one of the firsts in line willing to try it out. I mean, which girl doesn't feel this way? With all the different things from products, to heat we put on our hair...I'm sure we can all agree that we all put our hair in misery by damaging it. Here are a few things I do to keep my hair in a healthy, beautiful state.

Firstly I try to use the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque, at least once a week. I have tried many other treatments and always end up reverting back to this one. For some reason, it just seems to work great with my hair. It will reconstruct your dry, brittle, damaged hair, and you will see a huge improvement after only the FIRST use. It combines Macadamia, Argon oil, Tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extract. What I do is, take a shower and shampoo/condition my hair as I normally would. When I get out I brush through my wet hair, and begin applying this in mainly focusing on my ends. I then put my hair into a braid, and leave it in for about 20 minutes (the package suggests to leave it in only for 7 minutes, but I feel that 15-20 gives you that extra boost that all our hair desperately needs). Once my 20 minutes are up, I quickly rinse it out and hello beautiful shiny hair. Keep in mind this is a deep treatment and shouldn't be used more than 2 times a week.

Another one of my go-to hair products is the Paul Mitchell extra-body daily boost root lifter. Have you ever sat there and thought to yourself, why do all these celebrities have the nicest fully volumed hair? Wondering on what it is you have to do to get the same look? Well, you have come to the right spot....Paul Mitchell has the perfect combination to not only give you that extra lift that you're looking for, but also helps to protect your hair from heat styling. I put a few sprays mainly on my roots, and then spray the palms of my hands and run them through the rest of my hair. After I've finished blow drying,  my hair looks shiny, thick and full of body! If you're like me then you most likely don't like that sticky feeling in your hair, rest assured you will not see that with this product.

When I was younger, I for some reason could not decide between blond hair, and my natural brunette hair. Going back and forth between colours truly damaged my hair. The ends of my hair were breaking off, and super dry. I finally decided to take action and die my hair back to my natural dark brown hair colour and made a promise to myself that I wouldn't dye it anymore. Everyone had told me about a supplement called "Biotin". I then started taking it religiously, and let me just say WOW. Biotin does not only benefit your hair, but also your nails and skin, I mean to me its just a win, win, and did I say WIN?! This was certainly not an overnight dramatic change. I actually didn't see much of a difference until about 3 months after. My hair has become thicker & my nails have become much stronger. I take two 5000 mcg per day with lots of water! It is also very affordable so you have nothing to lose. You can purchase this at any of your health food, or vitamin store, Hope this helps.

Also if you can try limiting the heat you use in your hair, I swear your hair would thank you if it could. What I try to do during the week is, after I shower I put my hair in a tight braid and go to sleep. When I wake up the next morning for work, I  undo the braid and run my fingers through it so that I have nice loose-like waves/curls without the extra heat. Also, if you are one who uses the hair straighter to straighten your hair, I suggest you invest in a good blow dryer and begin practising on blow drying, rather than straitening your hair.
