My Hair Care Routine & Favorite Products

Hi everybody!

A lot of folks have asked about my hair care routine and my favorite hair care products, so I decided to write a post on this topic.

I have always had long hair, since I was a little girl.  I keep my hair trimmed across the bottom, because I prefer this straight look to fairy tale ends. I also think that keeping your hair hemline even helps your hair look longer and thicker. Of course, there are exceptions~ watch Lord of the Rings! Eowyn and Arwen have beautiful fairy tale ends (not to mention the elves! lol)

I usually wash my hair twice a week, on Tuesday night and again on Saturday night. I use the Condition-Wash-Condition method that I learned from the LHC. All that means is that you condition the length of your hair first to protect it, then shampoo only the top.  Rinse all this out, then condition the length again. I never put conditioner on my roots, because I've found this makes more hair come out when I comb it.  I try to always use cool/cold water on my hair, because I found out from the LHC that hot water can damage hair.

I like to wrap my wet hair in a t-shirt instead of a towel.  I used to have trouble with towel lint causing little tangles in my hair, but no more!  Drying my wet hair with a t-shirt also helps to reduce frizz, and makes my hair easier to comb out.

I comb my hair out using a wide tooth comb that I've had for years.  I never use a brush except on my bangs. I also wash my bangs every morning and blow-dry them (I know some folks on the LHC are against this, but I confess I do it!)

When I'm combing out my wet hair, I like to use Johnson & Johnson's No More Tears detangling spray.  Sometimes I use Frizz Ease products.  They have great detangling spray, smoothing cream, and hair serum.  I only use these on my wet hair.

I wash my hair at night so it can air-dry.

My favorite shampoo and conditioner brand is Herbal Essences.  I like to mix it up and use different versions.  Some of my favorite sets are the "Honey I'm Strong" and the "Touchably Smooth."

Another secret~ we have a water catchment system so I wash my hair in rain water.  I think this makes a big difference! My hair stays healthy and doesn't get dry like it does when I'm traveling and have to use the city water.

Finally, if you want your hair to grow long and strong quickly~ eat a spoonful of peanut butter every day!  This will work wonders!  I like to have a Slim-Fast milkshake for breakfast and supper, and put my spoonful of peanut butter in the blender.  The result is a delicious peanut butter/chocolate milkshake~ not unlike a Reese's Pieces peanut butter cup!

I hope these ideas are a help! If you have any secrets you'd like to share, please do!  Just leave them in a comment below.
