Products I use on a regular
I have fine hair with oily roots but from about under my ears to the ends my hair is pretty damaged from previous bleaching. I use certain products to make my hair come back to life from the damage.
I use Moroccan Oil Treatment Light. I use the light version because the oil penetrates the hair but does not leave my hair oily. The oil on fine hair weighs the hair down and makes it look flat and greasy. No one wants to be walking around looking like they have a grease ball on their head! I love to use this product before I blow dry my hair and after. I alternate between the Moroccan Oil and the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum, Extra Strength Formula. Personally I feel that the Frizz-Ease prevents my hair from frizzing and damage which I love and also does not leave my hair super oily. Then, when I’m feeling lazy and do not want to blow dry my hair, I use Fekkai PrX Reparatives Mending Elixir. This oil helps give my hair some body and does not frizz up as it would if I do not use any product.
To detangle my hair I use It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin Spray which I started using after I bleached my hair because my previous hair stylist recommended it. I never used a detangling spray before this, but it helps my hair a lot. Plus the product contains a bunch of benefits other than detangling. I feel that my hair would have been even more damaged than it is now if I didn’t start using it when I did.
When letting my hair air dry I also apply SheaMoisture Strengthen, Grow & Restore Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner to it. I can literally only put a dime size in my hair because it would make my hair extremely greasy and not pretty. I like to use this product if I’m going to braid my hair after washing it because it holds great.
I like to switch my shampoos up often so that my hair does not get use to one product. Currently I am using Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo, I usually try to go for sulfate free shampoos but they are hard to find for my hair type. I loooovee the TRESemme Botanique Nourish and Replenish Shampoo! It smells like coconut oil and makes your hair super soft and amazing. This shampoo also helps with damaged hair and does not give me dandruff like some other shampoos. I just recently purchased Redken Color Extend Magnetic Sulfate-Free Shampoo to see how the amino-ions affect my hair. I love how it smells but it just dries my hair out a bit more than i would like it to.
My favorite deep conditioner is, Boe Crece Pelo Treatment Jar which means “Hair Growth” in Spanish. I have been using this conditioner since I was about 17 years old and I could never get enough of it! I use it at the beach after I get in the water and just want to lay there sunbathing, I apply it to my hair and just let it sit in until I get home. Your hair will thank you if you use this! The texture is much better after every use and if you leave it in for the 15 minutes it says you will see less hair loss, and it smells amazing. I alternate between this conditioner and Silicon Mix Proteina De Perla Treatment. This deep conditioner has pearl protein in it (hence the name). The application is only for 3 minutes but it leaves your hair feeling silky, soft and feeling so healthy while smelling great. If I am in a rush, I use the TRESemme Botanique Nourish and Replenish Coconut Conditioner which also leaves your hair smelling and feeling good.
These are some of the products I like to use in my hair. Let me know if you guys try these products or recommend any other products!
