It's taken me a while to actually figure out the whole 'haircare' thing properly but I've finally had enough trial and errors and bad hair days (and I mean bad hair days) that I think I've managed to nail down the four most important things I've learned so far about haircare and healthy hair maintenance:
1.) Your tools matter.
"Just comb your hair," they said. "Use any comb and it will work," they said. They were wrong.
Even if I'm really gentle, whenever I use regular brushes chunks of my hair literally get ripped out as I comb (yep, it's as gross as it sounds). You don't have to be a genius to figure out that that's probably not great for your hair....
I'd recommend: The *Tangle Teezer. I can safely say that this is a brilliant de-tangler if your hair is like mine and gets knotted like a bird's nest really easily. It's extremely light-weight as well so it doesn't pull on my hair excessively and it manages to de-tangle all of my
stubborn as hell knots in a couple of minutes.
2.) Don't touch your hair unnecessarily.
3.) Pay attention to your surroundings.
4.) Sometimes your hair needs some extra lovin' too.
I'd recommend: The *Sachajuan Hair Repair Treatment because it smells like musk (so good) and works wonders for my hair if it's look rough. I use this instead of conditioner and apply it mainly to the ends of my hair, leave it for a few minutes and then rinse and my hair is left feeling silky smooth. This treatment would be especially handy if your hair is wiry or damaged but if your hair is fine then I'd avoid using this near the roots.
