You might be thinking, “Why in the world are we talking about fixing hair on this blog?!”
And I feel you. Trust me, I do.
But, here we are. Trying to answer some questions I get on the regular.
Also, you should know I am not qualified to talk about hair fixing or products. My degree is in elementary education. Please don’t tell the authorities.
Q: What do you use to curl your hair?
Q: How often do you wash your hair?
A: I wash my hair about twice a week. Normally on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but that can change if I have a super sweaty work-out. In the winter months I can go longer in between washes. I use Batiste Dry Shampoo in between washes. I still shower every day, but I just don’t get my hair wet on my non-washing days.
Q: After you’ve curled your hair, do you have to curl each day after?
A: If I’m going to fix my hair I do have to at least touch it up. I move a lot when I sleep and I sleep hot. Plus, I live in Texas. It’s hot. It’s humid. I do wear my hair either in a low loose ponytail or a loose side braid at night to get the most out of my washes. With that being said, I don’t wear my hair down every single day. I may put it up in a messy bun, wear a side braid, wear a hat, etc. So, I’m technically not curling it every morning. Using coil hair ties at night and while I’m at home helps a lot.
Q: What do you do with your hair after a hard work-out?
A: If I wear my hair in a mid to low ponytail (no bun) I have the best chance of saving it afterwards. I take my ponytail out as soon as I get in the car and let it begin drying out. After I shower I will blow-dry the rest if needed. Then I add a bit of dry shampoo to help with volume.
Q: What products do you use on your hair?
A: I do not use just a ton of products on my hair. I use cheap shampoo and conditioner (usually Tresemme). After fixing my hair, I put a very small amount of coconut oil on the ends to keep them smooth. I spray Living Proof’s humidity shield all over once it is fixed. Then, I use clear eyebrow gel to lay down the flyaways. Finally, I finish it off with hairspray! The Wet Brush does come in handy in between washes because you can rinse any dry shampoo residue off in a snap! However, I use a paddle brush when blow drying my hair.
I hope that helps answer any questions that you may have about my hair! I do realize that everyone has very different textures, cuts, and styles so this is not for everyone! It is just simply what works best for me!
