My Hair Care Routine from Start to Finish

—  found in  Beauty  —

This is by far the most requested blog and video I get asked to do - my hair-care routine. In the past I've talked about how to avoid the frizzieswhy stress is destroying your hair and how often you should wash your hair. In the Natural Hair Care Challenge I go into great depth about how to do a hair detox, hair nutrition, lifestyle habits and so much more. But in this video and post today, it's all about my hair-care routine from start to finish!

Before we get to it, please know that healthy hair is not the result of a magic pill or styling product.

Healthy hair is the result of good nutrition and healthy lifestyle habits. As I talk about in my video below, I used to have unhealthy, dry, thinning hair when I had hormonal imbalance. Now my hair is thick, healthy and shiny. I tell you this not to brag, but because I want you to know that you too, can have healthy hair.

If you have hormonal imbalance, thyroid disorderadrenal fatigue or take medication that has thinning hair as a side effect, then it's best to talk to a natural health-care practitioner like a Certified Nutritionist or Naturopathic Doctor who can help you get to the root cause of your hair issues.

Okay let's talk about my haircare routine and I will provide all the links to products below!

This is what I use to wash and condition my hair 

The main ingredient in both my shampoo and conditioner is aloe, which is why it is so soothing and doesn't harm or dry out your hair because there are no harsh detergents or damaging chemicals. This product is a great choice if you're wanting to lower your toxic load while avoiding synthetic fragrance and synethic sulfates. This is the first natural shampoo I've ever used that gets my hair really clean and doesn't leave any buildup. 

This is what I use for dry shampoo

The longer you let the dry shampoo sit in your hair, the more effective it is. Not only is it an excellent de-greaser but it provides amazing volume too! It can be applied at any time, but even more so before bed, so it has time to absorb.

In the winter, to avoid the frizzies I use my Smooth Like Butta on the ends of my hair. I slather it all over my body after a shower and then once my hair is dry, I put it on the ends. I use this instead of serum because it's multi-purpose and works just as well!

As for my styling tools:

This is my hair dryer.

This is my flat iron.

I can't find a link for my curling wand. I actually bought it off my hairstylist and it's the IONX Professional, but I LOVE it!

Disclaimer: I'm not a hair styling guru or hairstylist (obviously) so I am simply sharing my hair-care routine (because you've asked). My focus as a holistic nutritionist is healthy hair from the inside out, which I teach you in my Natural Hair Care Challenge that starts every single Sunday! Plus, it's totally free!

When I was young in my 20s I never had birth control pills. After married at the age 24..I still had alot, and thick hair. Never took pills. Doctor showed me a BC pills and I knew immediately I refuse to take it. I am a natural and just use my concept. I hate dangerous BC because It can cause miscarriages and other side effects. After having fifth kids my hair began thinning and had small spot bald at the age 39. Wish I should take skin hair nails supplements at the age 25 is very important to prevent aging in the future. You have gorgeous natural hair!

What are your thoughts on the use of heat protectants prior to using heat tools (flat iron, etc)? Do you use them? I know they are generally very chemical-y, but heat tools also aren't good for hair health..

Do you condition your hair from root to ends or from half way down to the ends? If you have thin hair is it recommended to put conditioner from roots or will that make hair limp?

The thought of going gray makes me cringe. What would you suggest for a natural hair dye?

I really like your dry shampoo. I've been using it for a couple of years now. It's effective and makes my hair smell awesome! I've taken to adding a few drops of peppermint oil to it and the chocolate mint smell is good enough to eat! Thanks for the recipe. ๐Ÿ˜€

Hi, Do you have worldwide shipping? I would like to order the shampoo, the dry shampoo and the deodorant.
