For the love of Healthy Hair
I have been growing my hair out since my senior year of high school - which is coming up on ten years! Oi! Over the years I've learned how to maintain my long hair without having to get inches of dead-ends cut off with each cut. Long hair can be super easy but also super hard if you don't take care of it.
I just recently stopped dying my hair. Not because I think dying is bad for my hair, I just finally learned that I love my natural hair color. My mom always would tell me how much she loves my lighter hair, but I would still dye it anything from brownish-black to strawberry blond. It has only been this year that I finally saw her point, my natural hair color really does suit me best, or at least until I get bored with it. wink wink! So, with that being said, I decided to take the money I usually spend on a dye and invest in good products. I started using Aveda's be curly shampoo and conditioner because I wear my hair lightly curly nearly every day. Also, I only wash my hair about twice a week, so it's much better to leave good quality ingredients on my hair for days in between washings rather than alcohol filled brands that can strip my hair and cause break-aways. (especially during summer months where I am constantly pulling my hair up)
Most days I do a really simple hair style consisting of a good comb through, a hair-tie and sometimes my Tresemme' hair spray, but occasionally, I'll bust out this amazing version of a curling iron, the curling rod. This is perfect for curling long hair! I love it. What are your favorite products? ♥, mK
