What helps my hair from breakage and frizz in the morning is using a sateen pillow case #kitsch. Everyone should use them! 

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

Best hair care tip, Use Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil when your hair is damp. It is a huge game changer. It has made my hair so soft.

 

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

I have very curly hair and I always used to be so focused on making it "straight" like all of my other friends. Recently I have been embracing and enhancing my natural curls. When I decided to make the switch to "natural" My hair was completely dead and frizzy.  So here are my tips on how to revive and show off curls.

 

1) brush hair from the bottom up

    - I always used to rake my hair from the top down; resulting in major split ends. Now I use a wide toothed comb and start de-tangling from the ends to the roots.

 

2) HYDRATE

    - in the past I would use conditioner and that would be enough for me. Now whenever I'm home and have time (ex. when I'm doing homework) I'll rinse my hair and apply a generous amount of either Briogeo Curl Charisma™ Rice Amino + Shea Curl Defining Conditioner 8 oz/ 237 mL or one of their hydrating hair masks. I'll clip it in a Drybar Hold Me Hair Clips and put a shower cap on to let it saturate. When I'm ready I will get into the shower and shampoo +condition my hair with the briogio banana super foods set. when I get out of the shower I will towel dry my hair 60% and then put in oleplex #8. to go to bed.

 

3) tame the frizz

   - my mom actually told me about this trick. So if I'm ever out and I notice that I have a lot of frizz I will take some hand lotion or moisturizer and put it on my hair. I know it sounds wacky but it works to tame stubborn flyaways. Putting lotion on hair is so much better than water; this sounds contradictory but putting water on hair will just make it frizzier.  

 

4) LOVE YOUR HAIR

   - no matter what anybody says, you have to remember that your hair is beautiful! your hair makes you unique and special. never let anybody pressure you into straightening  your hair. heat can damage curly hair (trust me, I know) and ruin curls. Love yourself and your hair ALWAYS, no matter how hard and annoying it can be. Its worth it.

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

My hairdresser gave me an 'e' for effort on my blow drying technique 🤣. I think I'll make use of sectioning clips next time like Briogeo Grip & Clip Sectioning Hair Clips so that way I can go section to section vs side to side when I blow dry.  I can focus more on getting tension instead and not drying out the hair so quickly.

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

get your hair regularly trimmed. Hair trimming aids the hair with its growth.

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

Apply a semi permanent clear gloss to seal your cuticle and add shine.

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

Shea Butter will help to lock in moisture and help to repair hair damage.

@SephoraBIC @Investing in a good blow dryer like Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer I love the different settings on it. 

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

@SportyGirly125 that dryer looks amazing 

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

@CynthieLu @I actually won one so that was so cool. 

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

For the first time in over 30years I am proud of my hair and the products I have been using. I have a condition that left me with a permanent bald spot on top of my head that I spent most of my energy on keeping it from anyone I knew. No professional cuts or stylea since the age of 12. The passed few weeks I have felt more free than it ever. Sick of my messy buns I became known for I took a scissors and just cut it all off like a bob. I've used scalp cleansers and instead of messy bun 2 little twists held by Bobbi pins allows my hair and scalp to breath and hair is looking great   today  I ordered ##Mizani crown scalp cleanse. I can't believe just letting the hair rest instead of up in  my ugly bun has not only given me a great deal of confidence but is growing slowly .... but it's growing. I was told NEVER as I damaged the area beyond repair. Im sorry for such a long entry but I am elated to be be able to share about  my hair in a positive light. #silkscrunchies #clear scalp #mentalhealthawarne44 Bobb? ??

Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium Hold 10 oz/ 330 mL is amazing for keeping blowouts looking great

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

My most important 'tip' for protecting my hair and finally getting it to grow longer than shoulder length is to use a satin scrunchie to put my hair up in a loose bun before bed. Using a (homemade) satin scrunchie consistently is key.

My tip for the summer: I always apply leave in conditioner to my hair before going in the water (pool or ocean). It helps keeping my hair soft and also detangling it when I get off the water. 
Another summer tip to keep hair looking great: don’t skip the deep cleanse shampoo once a week (or every 2 washes) to get rid of build up from the pool or the salt. 

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

A tip from my hairdresser: sleeping with wet hair tied up can lead to unpleasant scalp issues. If you must sleep with wet hair, she says, leave it loose.

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

i dont blow dry my hair but wait for it to dry naturally 

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

It doesn't hurt to invest in a nice hairbrush!  The Drybar Full Pint Medium Round Brush looks super nice.

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

As someone who has heavily highlighted her brown hair to blond for many years; I have found several products at Sephora that have literally saved my hair and even allowed it to grow much longer then it previously had for years. The entire line of shampoo conditioner and blonde shampoo are all wonderful but the saving grace for my thin fine hair that leaves it so soft and has saved my ends especially, has been the perfect combination of restorative oils that provide strength and softness without weighing my hair down or making it greasy. You will not believe your hair after just a few days of using these products. Olaplex is my Holy Grail now! #olaplexbondingoi

Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme 3.3 oz/ 100 mL 

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

As someone who has combination of straight and wavy hair, color treated hair, and thin silky hair, I have struggled with products weighing my hair down. I have always just thought my hair would look too flat. There are definitely a lot of products available that help with the volume however one tip that has drastically changed my hair care is only shampooing the roots of my hair and letting the shampoo rinse down the rest of my hair and also only putting conditions at the tips of my hair. 

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

The best thing to ever happen to my hair routine is the dyson airwrap complete. The round brush attachment is a game charger for a quick blow out look that doesn’t get frizzy. I legitimately do not travel anywhere without my dyson. It is truely one of the best things to ever happen to me.

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

Hello! My best hair care tip would be to use a scalp massager when shampooing your hair. You can use any scalp massager I got mine off of Amazon.They help with dandruff, hair growth, hair thickness, blood circulation, and so much more 🙂 I’ve put a picture down below in case some of you don't know what it looks like!
