my new hair routine
One of my New Year's goals was to finally get my hair back to a healthy state, to find a routine that actually worked. For years I've had a really dry scalp and my hair would easily get oily. I've sought advice from many many hair dressers--they've recommended everything from taking biotin supplements to sulfate-free shampoos. I've tried so many regimens, so many hair-washing routines, and so many products. It was getting very frustrating.
But honestly, as far as hair-care seems to go, I think a 2013 miracle happened. Never before has a new year's resolution been fulfilled so easily and so quickly. All thanks to two products: Head and Shoulder's Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner, and Lush's Big Shampoo. Now, I guess I'm being optimistic here, since it's only mid-January, but man am I impressed.
I received Lush's Big Shampoo as a Christmas gift, and have been using it for a few weeks now. Honestly, my hair has never felt so shiny and soft after at-home washes. But it's very salt-based and rough, and I was wondering how often I should being using it--every time I wash my hair? Only once a week? Twice a month?
Of course, Head and Shoulders came to the rescue. My first day back at school and I get this lovely box of the new Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner.
Can we pause for a moment and appreciate how amazing they smell? Very fresh, and like something you'd find at a salon. I can't get enough of it.
But after a couple washes--I'm so happy. My hair feels just as clean, smooth and healthy as when I used Big Shampoo. Plus, the Head and Shoulders shampoo and conditioner has a very smooth and gentle texture.
So, I think I've found it. My new regimen. I'll wash my 2-3 times a week, just as my hair dresser recommended. For most of my washes, I'll be using the Head and Shoulders Damage Rescue Products. Once a week, I'll use Big shampoo. My hair is healthy--I'm hoping this new routine works out!
How do you care for your hair?
