Hey friends! I wanted to share my best long hair care tips with you all since I’ve received several messages from followers wanting to know if I wear extensions, how often I wash my hair and curl it. So, here I am… giving you all my best long hair care tips!
First off, I don’t have extensions. It’s all my real hair. I’m totally not against extensions and sometimes wish I could wear them. I very well may if I ever choose to cut my hair shoulder length. Which I am very much tempted to every time summer rolls around! Lol.
Secondly, I don’t wash my hair everyday. We all know that hair washing is best every other day. Washing your hair and scalp on a daily basis tends to dry out your strands and scalp, so I wash every other day or so. I don’t use a particular shampoo but I only use the Enjoy brand hair mask in place of a condition every time I wash my hair. I leave this in for as long as I can in the shower and rinse it out. It is super hydrating and helps to reduce breakage, which important since my hair is color treated. So I’m trying to keep it from breaking and minimize the split ends. This is a fairly large bottle just over 33oz, and is pricey at $55. It does last a very long time because all you need is a nickel size amount.
In between washes, I use Scwarzkopf Osis Root Boosting powder. I’ve found this product on Amazon and it comes in a small container for less than $10!! Parting my hair in three different sections over the top of the crown of my head I sprinkle just a tad bit over each crease. Then gently rubbing it in with my hand. And then, wha-la! Root boosted look and no greasy roots! Best on the block if you ask me!
