Healthy Hair Care – PART I
Happy Monday Loves!
I am super excited to return back to blogging about HAIR care and WILL share all the secrets that have worked for us. Before I even start, I am NOT getting paid for this POST and I promise to keep it real.
Arielle has suffered from dry, flaky scalp since birth. Unfortunately after a month, she actually had cradle crap and her hair did NOT grow much the first year. At around 18 months, it finally started to grow and I was super excited. One thing I noticed the first 3 years of growth was slow and it was very fine. I figured she inherited it from me and the texture from her father’s of family. After reading an article written by a friend (SEE HONEYVERA POST HERE), I decided to try an organic herbal based product for the flaky scalp with castor oil.
I have been using Honey Vera scalp tonic for about 4 years consistently. It definitely has helped with the itching and flaking of her scalp and has truly thickened her hair. Mind you, I did not see much results the first month but after my second bottle, I noticed a BIG difference. I decided to give it a try and continued with the product.
I also tried several other brands of hair care products including Pantene, Cantu, VO5 and all the KIDS line you can imagine until I stumbled across the Curly Kids line in my local Dollar General.
I noticed that her curls were more defined with the GEL and vowed to try a new Curly Kids product each month until I found the right combination. I then shared our hair styles and journey via INSTAGRAM, mixed products, tested pretty much every single one until I finally came across the ones that works for her texture. Curly Kids noticed us and that’s how we became a BRAND AMBASSADOR!
NOW TO THE REAL DEAL: June we decided to request a special blend formula as I noticed more flaking due to the Summer heat. I ordered 3 bottles as my friend had tried it before and told me that her daughter’s hair was NOT flaking and growing more than with the regular blend. The SPECIAL BLEND FORMULA has SPECIAL added herbs and oils that stimulates the hair follicles and I was amazed just by the first week of using it. After seeing the results just the first month and using LESS oils on the hair, I decided to continue with it for a few more months.
I NOTICED A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE GROWTH. Within a 6 MONTH period, the HAIR GREW twice as MUCH!
Special BLEND is only available UPON REQUEST by sending a DETAIL message of the SCALP or HAIR ISSUES VIA EMAIL OR DM. It is formulated to meet YOUR NEEDS and even though it COST more it is WORTH EVERY PENNY. I also decided to switch up the moisturizer and use less OILS since the SPECIAL BLEND has OILS which is perfect for her scalp issues.
WASH DAY ROUTINE: Hair is washed 2 times per month. HERE ARE THE PRODUCTS USED:
REGULAR WASH WEEK – Curly Kids Super Detangle Shampoo and Super Detangling Conditioner
DEEP CONDITION WASH WEEK – Curly Kids Super Detangle Shampoo, Deep Conditioner mixed and Honey Vera Castor Coconut Oil. SPECIAL BLEND TONIC is always sprayed directly on the SCALP after every wash day!
DAILY ROUTINE: We found that the Your Curls Conditioned, and Moisture in a Minute works best for styling after wash day. We may add a small amount of Honey Vera Coconut – Castor Oil on wash days when the hair is NOT deep conditioned. MOISTURIZER IS USED 2 times per week when hair is styled. (PART 2 will focus on styling). We only use a small amount of Moisturizing Gel, Coconut Oil for Curls or Moisture in a minute along with Your Mane Moisturizer as needed.
HERE ARE THE 2 MAIN MOISTURIZERS THAT WE USE.
HERE ARE THE 2 GEL BASED PRODUCTS THAT WE USE:
HERE ARE THE 2 OIL BASED PRODUCTS THAT WE USE:
SPECIAL BLEND TONIC is USED DIRECTLY ON THE SCALP AT LEAST 3 TIMES A WEEK EVEN when the hair is styled. We often times use a little with the detangle spray instead of water. Arielle’s hair is SO thick that IT cannot be styled dry.
