New Year New Hair! Today, I have a slightly different post for y’all about my haircare routine. As a person with wavy/curly hair that never does what I want it to do, I struggle to be able to leave the house without styling my hair. As a lazy person, I usually just throw it up in a half up half down or ponytail. With my internship coming up, I wanted to really dig deep into my haircare, so I wouldn’t be heat damaging my hair.
Today, I’m working with HASK Chia Seed Oil Volumizing Collection, which has a shampoo and conditioner. Hask is great because all of their products are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors. Okay, first note, this shampoo conditioner set smells amazing. Even my older brother thought our shared bathroom smelled good. Weirdly, despite having absolutely huge hair, my volume stays at the bottom giving me the dreaded triangle hair. Usually, on the first day, my roots stay volumized. but it ends there. This collection really helped keep my hair volumized in the roots to the next day. I apply conditioner only to the bottom half of my hair to weigh them down and make sure they are curls and not waves. My roots stayed super soft despite not applying conditioner. Also, the weight of the conditioner is perfect to actually curl up my hair. #bless
After showering, I put the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Spray in. Not only is this much cheaper than the Bumble and Bumble alternative, it doesn’t have the same amount of salt and doesn’t dry your hair out. I then brush my hair out with a wide tooth comb. I, then, use the Aussie Mousse to scrunch my hair gently. I was always scared of mousse because of the hard wet-look mousse people used in early high school with the super straightened bangs. However, this just keeps my hair from getting big and preventing frizz. Additionally, if I ever need additional hold for any hair style, I use a little bit of the Not Your Mother’s Volumizing Hairspray.
If I had told myself a year ago that I would spend this much time or effort on my hair, I would have laughed. Honestly, this takes about 2 minutes and the results are visible! The best part is that all these products are super affordable and I don’t have to choose between a $20 bottle of shampoo or going out to dinner that week when I have to restock on products. All products are under $10 and go on sale often!
What’s your hair routine? How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
