Healthy Hair Practices and Products!

Hello my beautiful PL's!!! There are so many practices and products to use to get beautiful long healthy hair! The products that are shown below are what work for my hair type! My hair is thick and wavy/curly. Keeping it moisturized is very important, it also prevents the hair from breaking off. With having long hair a lot of times a section may get neglected, so make sure to divide the hair in about 6 sections so the product can really penetrate into the hair and scalp. Make sure to get the dead ends cut off so new healthy hair can grow!! (Very important) There are two routines used by me to practice healthy hair. If you can do this every 2 weeks or even monthly than you can too have beautiful long healthy hair! 

1st Routine
This routine should be done every 3-4 days! 
1. First use a clarifying shampoo (here) if you have product build up!
2. Use a moisturizing shampoo (here) after the clarifying shampoo to put moisture back into the hair and scalp.
3. After hair is completed washed then use a deep conditioner to lock moisture into the hair!! I usually do this out of the shower because I place a shower cap over the hair and wait about 10-15 minutes!! There are several deep conditioners I use but for this routine I like to use the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment (here).
4. Once deep conditioner is rinsed out of the hair I use Cantu curly hair moisturizer (here) and Organix moroccan argan oil (here).
5. Flip your hair over and put argan oil on the ends of your fingers and massage your scalp. I usually do this for about 3-5 minutes. You may ask WHY flip your hair!? This is done so your hair follicles can heat up and really absorb the oils in your scalp. This promotes hair growth and healthy hair.
6. Style as desired. Personally I recommend to let the hair air dry. Try to stay away from HEAT as much as you can! IF you must use heat, spray a heat protector (here) on the hair!!

2nd Routine
This routine should be done every two weeks or monthly!
1. On dry hair apply a hot oil treatment. (Test on arm to make sure it is not too hot) My current favorite at home (here) can be found at your local Walmart or Ulta beauty store. Yes divide hair into 6 sections again! If you have thin hair then you can divide into 4 sections! Cover with shower cap.
(Applying a warm towel or sitting under a dryer is optional!) Let sit on hair for about 30 minutes! (5 minutes like the box says does nothing for my hair)
2. Rinse out hot oil treatment. Apply a hair mask or deep conditioner. Favorite hair masks are Macadamia Deep Repair Masque (here) and Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Treatment (here).
3. Apply an oil to your hair using number 5 method above!
Let hair air dry! Hair will be so soft, shiny, healthy, and manageable!!!

ALL products listed above are below $10 (except the Macadamia hair mask, sorry its just that awesome and soooo worth it!) and works perfect for my hair!!
