My Current Hair Care Routine

 (this is what my hair would look like if I spent more time on it, a good blow-dry and some romantic curls with my still-brand new curling iron)

When it comes to my hair I'm quite low-maintenance, I'm not really experimental when it comes to hairstyles and prefer to have one signature look kinda like Jennifer Aniston or Mila Kunis. Although, when it comes to protecting my hair that's a different story. I've been coloring my hair a couple years now and on top of that I straighten it from time to time and the amount of damage has increased. On bad days my naturally curly/wavy hair is frizzy, life-less, and extremely dry and I've discovered some products along the way to help restore my hair back to life. Here's my current routine: 

When it comes to washing my hair, I only do it every 2-3 days because curly/wavy tends to be extremely dry and it prevents my hair color from fading away too quickly. I recommend using a sulfate-free shampoo for color-treated hair because it helps the color to last longer and the one from Living Proof is specifically designed for damaged hair. Most sulfate-free shampoos don't lather well but this one surprisingly does and I could see a difference in my hair in about a week! It was much stronger and the brassiness from my dark blonde highlights were toned down and looked so much better! The price is a bit steep at $28 but they do have a starter kit for a bit cheaper in case you wanted to try it out.

I already made a post about the Organix Argan Oil Renewing Mask and you can click here to read it but every one who has damaged hair should defiantly look into buying a moisturizing mask to use at least once a week to renew hair. Other ones that I recommend are the Living Proof Restore Mask and the Fredric Fekkai Rapid Results Moisturize Mask which I've had great results with. 

If you're someone like me who tends to straighten their hair often or use a lot of heat on then I defiantly recommend a good heat protection spray. I cringe whenever I see someone flat-iron their hair without heat protection on beforehand! The one I'm using right now is a pretty basic one from CHI called Iron Guard that's sold at Wal-mart for around $13, that I spray into my hair and it soaks it up quickly and doesn't make my hair greasy or weighs it down. You don't need to go all fancy especially if you're using it every day as long as you have something to protect your hair.

Out of my entire hair care routine, this product is probably my favorite. I never used any serums or oils on my hair before but after receiving a sample from Sephora I was hooked! I use 2 or 3 drops of the Ojon Instant Restorative Serum every day and warm it up between my hands before applying it to my ends and I swear my hair looks so much more healthier! It's great for split ends and especially if you have dry hair like me. I've used it on both my curly and straight hair and it looks amazing each time! One bottle lasts for a long time since you can't use too much of it or else it'll look greasy and I've been meaning to try out more products from the Ojon damage reverse line because of my success with this. Also, did I mention the instant shine it gives my hair?

I told you I was low-maintenance haha...I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives to these products but I just haven't found them but almost all these products you can find at either Ulta or Sephora and they typically do deals on them or give coupons so keep an eye out! 

Until next time lovelies,
