I went into this summer season with lofty hair goals. I want to grow my hair a little bit longer, and I want it to be healthy. My hair journey has been a weird one over the past three years. I mean, three years ago I was pregnant. My hair did AMAZING things during pregnancy. Post-pregnancy it wasn’t terrible. But the further I’ve gotten away from pregnancy, the more trouble I’m having keeping up.
I’m finally, finally! getting to a happy place with my hair and I’m here to share all about it. If I’m honest, I wasn’t sure I’d ever get to a point where I love my hair as much as I do right now. It just goes to show you, with the right hairdresser and the right salon products, your hair can be as beautiful as you need it to be.
My first piece of advice is to find a hairdresser you love – and be open and honest with him/her. I have a regular date with my hair dresser. I started seeing my hairdresser not long after I had my second child. During my last visit, I told her of my plans to go longer, so she trimmed just what needed to be trimmed. No inches off – just enough to keep my hair looking healthy. The above photo was taken in my car, after my hair appointment. I actually had a photo from last year that I showed her and said, “I loved this, and I want my hair to be like that again.” So she did.
Also I have my hairdresser color my hair. We use a semi-permanent (because sometimes it’s 9 or 10 weeks before I see her). While it would be cheaper to color my own hair, I trust her to do a good job and to use a great quality color.
Save on the washing. This summer I’ve been using dry shampoo at least once a week – in between washing it. It gives my hair a break overall, and it just feels less dried out. It also doesn’t get oily when I use a dry shampoo. I’ve been testing out different brands to see which one I absolutely love (I will tell you that I prefer a spray versus the powder that I used to use. The powder just makes my hair look like it’s caked in baby powder.)
And lately I’ve been using Desert Essence hair products. I’m currently using the anti-breakage shampoo and conditioner by Desert Essence and I’m digging the products! I was also sent a smoothing primer and the Smoothing shampoo and Conditioner.
The Desert Essence Anti-Breakage shampoo and conditioner contains Keratin and Pro-Vitamin B5. They also contain Jojoba and Coconut Oils. The products help to minimize breakage and fall. Anyone who has had a baby knows the hair loss after the baby comes can be crazy. I’m STILL dealing with it. And while it’s definitely getting less, I’m hoping the Anti-Breakage line helps.
The Smoothing Primer can be used either after shampoo and conditioner, or in between shampoos as a rinse to help freshen and cleanse your scalp and hair. I’m trying to not wash my hair every day, so this has been a fun little trial.
