I have been using K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Mini Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL  for the last month and it has really brought out my curls and helped keep my dyed hair from being damaged.

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

One of the most basic but really important practices I've been trying to be consistent with is getting regular hair cuts. I try not to let my dead ends get too crazy by making sure they are trimmed frequently.

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

On wash day, I apply a few drops of Virtue Healing Oil 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  after my leave-in conditioner! It adds a noticeable shine to my hair.

 

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

I apply my hair products like skincare products - from thinnest to thickest.

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

Use a comb with wide teeth to brush thru wet hair.  You won't have as many snarls.

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

I love using a round brush with a hair dryer to curl my hair. It's so easy and I don't risk burning myself like I do with the curling iron. For a really easy look, I'll dry my hair and use the brush to curl my ends under so my hair looks very neat.

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

It also gives my hair lots of volume!

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

I cannot believe the difference a few better products have made in the texture, shine, and just over all look of my locks. I have recently started using Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Conditioner  repair&restore shampoo & conditioner (samples) my hair is really loving everything about both shampoo&conditioner. I also love and will keep purchasing Wonder Crown pre-cleanse Mizani Wonder Crown Scalp Clarifying Foaming Pre-Cleanse 6.8 oz/ 200mL # as I myself in just a few uses love to the way it preps for wash and believe it helps recieve the best results using a higher end shampoo/conditioner. I have always had dry/brittle hair and feel like these 3 products have started me on my way to pretty 😍 soft 😘 💕 hair I can be proud of. I have damage due to trichotillomania which has left permanent balding but have come such a long way that I no longer see my hair as shameful... I am happy to have finally found products that help in the restoration and will buy different formulas as my journey changes. For extra hydration I've used overnight hydration treatment "dream routine" by Amika .. the smell is great and my hair feels fabulous in the morning with no need to rinse amika Dream Routine Overnight Hydrating Hair Mask 3.3 oz / 100 mL 

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

For the first time in my life I had bleached my hair to get that chocolate color and my hair felt rough af! It was then I tried Olaplex and it is a savior. My hair is smooth and it doesn’t feel weird when I touch it. I had black smooth hair before this and bleaching just made it feel stringy. 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!

For flyaways and stray hairs  in updos or sleek styles, I use a clear brow gel like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Strong Hold Clear Brow Gel Clear and it keeps everything in place!

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

I keep the ends of my hair trimmed regularly. Keeps my hair looking nice. I actually have my husband trim my hair at home.

Instead of blowdrying, I either let my hair airdry or I use a microfiber towel or a regular tshirt to wrap my hair in!

My favorite dry shampoo is amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo or the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo and I don’t have to wash my hair for a few more days!
