Another tip is to always use a heat protectant! My favorite is Bumble and bumble Bb. Heat Shield Thermal Protection Mist 4.2 oz/ 125 mL 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I have been trying to let my hair naturally dry more often rather than adding heat all of the time. When i do blow dry my hair I use the Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer . I have the Holiday edition one which is navy blue and copper coloured. It has different settings and i try to blow dry my ends with the cool setting. It leaves my hair smooth and the dry time is less using this blow dryer vs any other blow dryer I have owned.

i take an ice cube and run it over my hair after a blowout

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I use hair masks to keep my hair smooth! I just bought the amika Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask for the first time. Whenever using any hair mask I keep it in for as long as possible and use a plastic swim cap! I look silly but it works 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I like to let my hair air dry for a while before heat styling.

Hi! For Keeping hair healthy from all the bleaching and color treatments K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  is a great hair treatment. I 've been using it for over a year and it has been a great  💕

Grandma always said to brush one's hair before bed, for 100 strokes. It can stimulate growth, impart shine and is a quite soothing ritual.

Keeping your body hydrated also helps your hair health. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Stopped shampooing the ends of my hair and instead I only massage the shampoo on my scalp. I allow the shampoo to just naturally travel to my ends when I rinse. This has drastically improved my ends from breaking and allowing my hair to grow.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I always rinse my hair in cold water, it keeps the color a lot longer.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I bought Sephora’s SEPHORA COLLECTION Scalp Massager to help grow my hair out. I use it during my hair wash routine- it does such a nice job of working in my shampoo. Not to mention how good it feels on your scalp!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

If you color your hair, consider getting it done professionally.  I had done my own for years, and this past year lost a lot of hair at the places where I needed color the most, around my face.  I'm thankful it's growing back, but stunned that it happened in the first place.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

As someone who’s dealing with hair loss from medications, I highly suggest using a hair oil like Fable & Mane HoliRoots™ Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil 3.4 oz/ 100 mL  used with a scalp massager (my favorite is the Ouai scalp massager) and leaving it on for as long as you can, and making sure you’re massaging your scalp thoroughly.

The Dyson hairdryer is too expensive for me to recommend without reservation, but my hairdresser says it’s the best she’s used, and I can definitely tell a difference when she uses it on my hair. Dyson Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer

Continuing with my pattern with Pattern, I love a hot oil treatment prior to washing with PATTERN by Tracee Ellis Ross Jojoba Oil Hair Serum Self-Heating Packs .  I don't have a microwave, so these packs make a hot oil treatment so easy to do.  Plus, love watching the little indicator change.

Drybar Southern Belle Volume-Boosting Mousse 6.5 oz  I love how this keeps my hair from falling flat halfway through the day. I put it on wet then blow dry and good for the rest of the day

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Olaplex Haircare dramatically changed my hair after being bleached. I love their Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil to apply before heat and maintain frizz!! 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I found my hair recovered after some color processing damage nicely with Olaplex No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Hair Treatment 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Learn about hair science so you can be leery of hair myths, understand ingredients and apply your knowledge.   A helpful book for me was "don't go shopping for haircare products without me" by Paula Begoun.  Lorraine Massey's "curly girl" book was also good.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Massage your scalp daily. It helps your hair grow! This has helped my hair so much!
