Bad hair days: A thing of the past…

Talk to any woman with straight, wavy or curly hair, and most likely she will tell you that humidity is her worst nightmare.

I remember dreading hazy, hot and humid days a few years ago. Not to say that I jump for joy when I hear the weather man tell me that this is what I can look forward to when I walk out the door in the morning, but now I no longer fear those 3 H’s.

That’s right! I can walk out with my head held high and my hair completely loose because I feel confident in the products that I apply and know that my hair care routine will get me through the day.

Yesterday was one of those days…

I wore my hair similar to the image below and applied a dime-size of the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Reconstructive Finishing Elixir to my hair and I was good to go. This product left my hair feel shiny, soft and bouncy.

Basic Wash-and-Go Hair Essentials…

Whether you have straight hair, curly hair, frizzy hair, manageable hair, or whatever texture you were blessed with, you’ll be happy to hear that these products, and possibly my techniques, can be used on any hair type.

I generally use my fingers to de-tangle, but when I need a little extra help, a wide tooth comb is the way to go.  A duck bill clip is used to hold my hair in place after I apply the hair masque (post-shampoo), which I leave on for about 5-10 minutes in the shower. My final rinse (cool to cold water I might add) is used to wash out the conditioner. Lastly, I wrap my hair in a microfiber towel for less than 5 minutes.
