My most popular post ever was my post about how I grew out my hair so long. If you haven't seen that, you can find it here. In that post, I gave a few simple tips and tricks to get really long hair. I want to do a follow up with the products I use to care for my long hair. I also wanted to give one tip and that is: DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING THAT SAYS YOU CAN GROW YOUR HAIR 3 INCHES IN A WEEK. Seriously your hair grows at one speed and there is no magic oil you can use to make it grow.
In that post I said that I don't really ever wash my hair. Normally it gets washed about once to twice ish a week. I used to go about 3 days until I found the best dry shampoo ever.
I'll admit that I have some really dry skin and that includes my hair. Each time I wash it, I first use the tresemme platinum strength shampoo. This stuff is supposed to repair your hair but even if it doesn't do that, I still think its nice. Plus it has a pump on it so that just makes things about a million times better. Then I use head and shoulders.
I actually do lather, rinse, repeat. If you're someone who washed their hair infrequently or uses a ton of products, I really do suggest doing this. The first wash gets all the product buildup out and the second gets down into your scalp and cleans that and your hair.
I focus my shampoo in my roots and just let it rinse down the length of my hair.
Head and shoulder work really well if you have dry scalp or dandruff problems. It smells not that great but I don't have a problem with that.
My hair is the first thing I wash in the shower so following it with conditioner and, leaving that conditioner on for the rest of the shower helps it really sink in.
I think this makes a difference in the softness of my hair and keep it from breaking so much.
It has a bit of shimmer in it that makes you hair look healthy and shiny in the light without it looking stringy or greasy.
This stuff freaked me out at first because, when I showered, the water was running brown. I was thinking "how am I this dirty?" but in fact it was this tinted dry shampoo coming out haha.
Dry shampoo can make your hair look dull and leave a bit of a white cast in it so using one that;s colored for your hair is great.
