Our hair faces a lot of damage even when we don’t even realize it. We know the consequences of blow dying it, curling it and straightening it but what about the damage from the sun, wind and sea? The best way we can protect our hair from all of these dangers it to keep it well conditioned. Here are my tips I have learned over the years that help keep my hair strong, thick and full of life.
My first tip when it comes to any beauty routine is to incorporate coconut oil in any way that you can!
Coconut oil helps promote healthy hair growth by moisturizing, boosting blood circulation and preventing breakage. Plus it’s rich in nutrients and acts as antibacterial which fights off lice and dandruff.
There is nothing quite like the benefits of coconut oil for the hair and that is why I chose the Hask Monoi Coconut Oil system for my hair.
My deep condition routine:
First, know that you can either deep condition your hair before the shower or during. We have options, darlings!
For the deepest conditioning, apply the HASK Monoi Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner to your hair before the shower while it is dry. Use enough of the conditioner to completely saturate your hair from root to tip. Let it sit for at least 15-20 minutes. In the meantime take the opportunity to further pamper yourself! Apply a face mask, whiten your teeth, watch an episode of Parks and Recreations or whatever it is that helps you relax.
Once the time has passed, rinse out the conditioner really well with water, then shampoo! After you rinse with shampoo lightly condition your hair with Hask Monoi Coconut Oil Conditioner.
If you are going to deep condition in the shower then apply after shampooing and leave in for at least five minutes then rinse thoroughly. This is an easier option when you don’t have much time to pamper.
It is important to deep condition your hair at least once a week to avoid breakage and split ends. Plus, it will keep your hair shiny and beautiful.
Once you have successfully rinsed and shampooed your hair, gently pat your hair dry with a towel, once again to prevent breakage. Next, add your favorite products and a coin-size amount of the coconut shine oil. Rub it around in your hands first to ensure equal distribution, then apply starting around ear level and down to the ends. Once it is distributed evenly in this area, brush it all through. This will help take enough of the product to the roots and prevent oiliness. Bonus: it smells delicious!
Throughout the week if your hair starts to look dull or dry add more of the oil to the ends, but be careful, a little goes a long way!
I use regular conditioner when I am going to curl my hair because deep conditioning will weigh curls down and the heat applied will be a waste of time. (Unless your hair is super dry and soaks it all up.)
Beauty Tip: Regular conditioner can be used in place of shaving cream!
The HASK products work for all hair types and are free of: sulfates, paragons, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors.
What I like most about these products is that they are infused with Monoi oil, which re-hydrates and softens the hair, keeping it well nourished.
Not only are these products wonderful for your hair but they’re easy on the budget too! They are extremely affordable and available at Ulta!
