how to fake healthy hair while repairing damaged hair


v Before v








It took me quite some time to find the right products for my hair. After spending dozens of dollars on products that just weren't right for me, I finally came across my dream team. I wish I had a better picture of the damage but quite honestly, I was too embarrassed to take any photos. I had mistakingly thought my hair was invincible and pushed it to the edge.

If you were a follower of mine when I started my blog, you know pretty well the steps I've been taking but I felt now is a good time for an update!

My hair now is entirely my own natural hair color and for the most part, very healthy! The ends and bits around my face simply just do not grow as fast as the rest of my hair so I make sure to take extra care of these areas.

First things first:

Do not wash your hair every day. Your hair needs time to replenish the natural oils that you have been stripping for years. In between washes I use dry shampoo liberally on my roots before bed and waking up in the morning.

I use Macadamia oil if my ends ever feel dry in between these periods in which I do not wash.

When I DO wash my hair, I always wash my roots and use the suds to wash the rest of my hair. Never wash multiple times in the shower. This strips your essential oils and generally damages your hair.

After I shower, I wait until my hair is slightly damp and spray 3-5 pumps of the Its-a-10 leave in conditioner in my hands and evenly coat the ends of my hair. I use a wide toothed comb to comb my hair when its damp to prevent it from tearing my hair.

Depending on how my hair feels that day, I may put coconut oil on the damaged ends of my  damp hair.

Taking these steps have really changed my hair for the better. I have definitely learned from experience not to challenge my hair. I hope these steps help you too!


EDIT: I made a mistake understanding what cowashing is, but all has been fixed. :)

  1. It's easy to tell if you have healthy hair. There are signs such as does it have good shine? Is it thick or long?

  2. Baldness is something that happens to a lot of people as they age for men and women. However, getting older isn't the only time that balding can affect people.
