Hey guys! I hope you are having a wonderful day so far. In today’s blogpost I want to talk about something I get questions about a lot: my hair, and more specifically, how I manage to keep my hair healthy.
I’ve had long hair for I think most of my life. I recently decided to cut it ‘short’. I just wanted to change things up since so many things in my life were already changing. So yeah, my hair is a bit shorter now.
I’m going to talk about two products I love using right now to keep my hair healthy but I’ll do a few another blogposts soon on:
– my hair care routine
– the products I used to heal my damaged hair
– tips for growing your hair / maintaining healthy hair
When I moved to my new place almost 2 months ago, I suddenly lived a lot closer to university and I was able to go everywhere by riding on my bicycle. When I lived in my old house, I lived in the middle of nowhere so I had to take public transport at all times to get somewhere. This was really nice for my hair because the weather is by far my number one cause of damaged hair (but I’ll talk about that in another blogpost). Now that I have to cycle to school and everywhere else, my hair started to get dry because of the hard wind, rain, (and I don’t even want to think about what snow will do to my hair). So of course I needed a solution for the dryness of my hair before my hair would die again.
I went to Yves Rocher and got a wonderful hair oil for damaged hair. This product is amazing. After one use my hair instantly stopped being dry.
You can use this oil in many different ways. You can use it as a hair mask before taking a shower. Just add a good amount on your scalp and dry/damaged hair (or just the ends), let it sit for at least a couple of hours (I prefer to leave it in all night), and then wash your hair like you normally would. Results will be visible in just a couple of weeks. You can do this one time a week, maybe two.
Another way to use this hair oil is by adding a few drops in my hair after I take a shower. This is what I always do with this oil. I prefer to do this when my hair is still wet, because it’s easier to divide it over my hair. When I apply it on dry hair, I feel like some parts of my hair get a lot of oil and other parts no oil at all.
I brush my hair, put 3 drops in my hand, rub my hands to distribute the oil and then I rub the oil in my hair. Don’t do this on the scalp, add it from the hair that reaches your earlobes until your ends. It leaves my hair super shiny and moisturized.
The last thing that you can do with this oil is add it to a hair mask. Just add a few drips to your hair mask, mix it and put it in your hair like you normally would.
All and all, I am super happy with this hair oil and would recommend it to anyone that struggles with dry or damaged hair. You can get it at Yves Rocher for €7,95.
One last thing I use to keep my hair healthy is castor oil. I got mine at Kruidvat for somewhere around 4 euros. Make sure you get 100% real castor oil, that works the best.
Castor oil is known for hair growth and I use it for my hair line. My hair line is a bit damaged on one side because my hair was too heavy when it was long. I use the castor oil on the night before the day I wash my hair. I massage it into my scalp on the places that can use a little bit of extra help with growing. Castor oil is very thick and very sticky so it’s not amazing to apply it. However, it does help.
If pure castor oil is a bit too much for you, you can try this recipe to make it less thick:
– castor oil (half of the cup/bottle/whatever)
– 100% real olive oil (half of the cup/bottle/whatever you’re going to put the mixture in)
– (optional) a few drops of peppermint essential oil to make the mixture smell nice and peppermint essential oil also promotes hair growth!
That’s it for today’s blogpost! I hope you guys enjoyed it and hope to speak to you again soon!
