3 Tips to Help You Maintain Healthy Hair

Hello, lovelies!

Maintaining healthy, shiny hair can seem like the ultimate challenge. I often find myself wondering: How well am I cleansing? Are my heated styling tools too harsh? Here are tips I use weekly to keep my tresses healthy and strong.

Don’t over-wash your hair 

Unless your hair is very oily, it is best to wash it every other day. Washing hair daily causes dryness and breakage. Over-washing hair strips strands of their natural oils. If you want hair to feel squeaky-clean every day, try using a dry shampoo in-between each wash.

Take care when brushing 

Using a wide-tooth comb when brushing wet hair will prevent breakage. Your hairbrush should contain softer bristles to keep strands soft and even. It is a good idea to brush through hair every morning and night to remove dirt, dust, and dryness.

Condition, condition, condition 

Condition hair regularly to maintain softness. I condition daily. A moisturizing conditioner strengthens hair and prevents dryness. If your hair feels limp or oily from conditioning, reduce your conditioning regime and only apply conditioner to the ends of hair.

3 Creative Ways to Use Dry Shampoo

Hello, lovelies!

Dry shampoo is a staple in my morning routine when there just isn’t enough time to wash my hair. Along with eliminating excess oil in your roots, dry shampoo can be useful for many aspects of your beauty routine!

Add faux highlights to your hair

Dry shampoo is available in a range of colours. While coloured dry shampoo is meant to blend into your hair, a few sprays can give the appearance of highlights in your locks.

Secure bobby pins

Bobby pins are often slippery and don’t stay in place. Spritz each bobby pin with dry shampoo before placing it in your hair for a secure hold.

Boost hair’s volume

Dry shampoo doesn’t just have to be saved for oily strands. Flip your hair upside down, add dry shampoo to your roots then concentrate it into the rest of your hair for extra volume.

REVIEW: John Frieda Volumizing Dry Shampoo

Hello, lovelies!

Dry shampoo is my lifesaver on mornings when I just don’t have time to wash and dry my hair. John Frieda’s Volumizing Dry Shampoo  is one that I’ve used for a long time. Using this dry shampoo is a quick way to remove excess oil from my hair while creating volume.

The Packaging 

I adore how compact and lightweight the aerosol canister is. I can easily transport the product in a purse or overnight bag. Because the product is a spray, the canister contains a nozzle to dispense the shampoo. The canister features teal and black color blocks, with the John Frieda logo displayed on the front.

How to use it? 

Shake well before use. Lift hair in sections then spray the product into hair in short, quick bursts. Use your fingertips to blend the fine powder into your hair.

Why I love it 

My hair is naturally thick. I find that this dry shampoo eliminates excess oil from my hair the best, plus it gives my hair extra volume when I curl it! I also like the small canister size. This size makes it easy to travel with, for touch-ups when I am running errands. Compared to other dry shampoos, John Freida’s does not leave white residue in my hair, nor does it have a talc-like smell.

John Freida’s Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a great product if you want to try a dry shampoo that is easy to use, provides extra volume, and leaves no residue. This dry shampoo can be found in most drugstoresWalmart,  or beauty retailers for $6.72.
