After bleaching my hair for more than 15 years non stop I had to figure out a way not to go bald & still have semi good hair. Why I use semi is because after my weight loss journey & being vegetarian for nearly 5 years my hair chnage texture & just little by little I’m taking back to its healthy state.
Just a clarification that while I was vegetarian I didn’t have the healthiest diet, if not I know so many people who had a really good protein base diet & their hair is in absolute amazing state however that was not the case with me & my hair.
Long story short I had to take my hair from state of broken & fragile to strong & healthy & also growing because for a while it literally stopped growing.
I have a blog post on the vitamins I take to help with my hair & skin, also I have talked about about my hair care routine previously as well, at the same time that you have to work from your inside out, what you use on you hair makes or break your hair as well.
Most of my hair masks are focused on fragile hair that breaks very easily & needs a lot of nourishment. I will go in details on why I use each & how I use them.
Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3
I’m sure it is not your first time hearing me talk about this. It is my absolute ride or die hair treatment. There is just nothing like it. It transforms my hair like no other hair treatment does. It is for damaged hair & what it does is strengthens , helps with texture, protects the hair & helps with breakage. How I use it is I leave it on either overnight or even during the day for minimum of 6-8 hours . i feel like if I don’t do this I have wasted product because I see the best result when it has been marinating on my hair for few hours. You don’t have to wet your hair, you can apply to dry hair, braid your hair and wash it in 6-8 hours. Use it 1-2 months.
ALTERNA CAVIAR Anti-Aging Restructuring Bond Repair Masque
When I don’t use my overnight mask I use this to give my hair a thick moisture. I don’t wash my hair often so by the time it’s time for wash my hair is very dehydrated. It conditions the hair deeply and reduces breakage. I use it in shower on wet hair & leave it on for 3-5 minutes & you will feel how soft your hair gets. My hair is super shiny after using this mask & also it is more manageable to style since it is really nourished.
SHU UEMURA Essence Absolue Nourishing Taming Overnight Serum
This product is technically not a mask, it is an overnight serum made with red Camelia Oil which protects and nurtures hair. I love using this after the initial wash when my hair is getting dry and frizzy. The only thing I notice is after using this serum I can’t leave my hair straight & either I have to curl or do an updo. My hair is silky smooth after using this. I call this my mid wash hair mask that doesn’t need to be rinsed off.
