I've been growing my hair for a number of years now, prior to that I was shaving my head once a week. I'm getting older now so it's time to take advantage of my lush hair before it thins and falls out!
Clean with cold water: Cold water preserves natural oils and keeps your hair manageable, gives it a healthy shine and loads it up with extra moisture giving it a smoother and shinier look. Cold water helps close the cuticles. Closed cuticles are smoother cuticles which can give your hair some much needed shine.
Don't clean regularly but rinse: What I mean by this is that I don't use shampoo to wash but I still rinse my hair
The potential benefits of skipping shampoo include:
-healthier hair and scalp that produces a balanced amount of oil.
-more voluminous hair.
-better textured hair and less need for styling products.
-less exposure to potentially irritating chemicals
Don't use / combine too many hair products: I've learned from trial and error, mixing products has caused my hair to stiffen up and get damaged.
Depending on how you style your hair, use one product. Mixing different chemicals/ ingredients
Here are some of my favourite products to use to style my hair:
Johnny B hair spray, light smelling but holds up nicely!
