What woman doesn’t want beautiful, silky, and healthy hair?  A poor diet can have a negative impact on your overall health, including your hair.  Additionally, hair loss, slow growth, lack of moisture, breakage, and dullness can result from poor choices in your hair care regiment.   

Women spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars for top of the line hair care products and high-quality extensions to achieve the flawless look of high profile celebrities.  The downside to keeping up with hair trends is that over-processing can cause dull-unhealthy hair and contributes to hair loss.  Women are always searching for ways to combat the effects of constant heat and styling products by searching for moisture-rich and repairing hair serums.     

My experience with hair care dates back to my childhood.  My mother owned a beauty salon, so I watched the hairstylist care for their clients’ hair.  As I grew older I began to care for my own hair and learned to listen to my hair follicles.  They speak to me when I’m stressed; my diet is poor, or simply when they need more moisture.  I’ve tried in array of hair care products but learned early on to eliminate products that contain alcohol like spritz and holding gel.  I’ve skipped the trip the hair salon as far and I can remember and have even become quite the pro at customizing my own extensions.  I’ve learn what works for me and want to share some of my current favorite products that work for naturalist like myself that wears extensions in protective hair styles. 

Below I've listed my current favorite products.

Anytime you apply products to your natural hair, you should always aim for sulfate & paraben-free products.  Sulfates and parabens do not penetrate the hair follicles and only sit on top of the hair causing dryness.  Sulfates and parabens are also toxic to the body and have even been linked to cancer.  

One 'N Only Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner are perfect dual for naturalist like myself.  It leaves my hair silky smooth and clean.  I can always tell I've hit the mark with a great shampoo and conditioner when my hair feels light and airy after a good wash.  I leave my conditioner in slightly longer than the directions because I have very thick hair (the adjustment is based on your preference).  The great thing about this combo is it works perfect on my Brazilian extensions.  

 

Natural Hair Moisture & Growth

Every opportunity I get to "grease my scalp", I always reach for Nature's Blessing Rosemary Hair Pomade.  This pomade is made with a ton of natural ingredients and lots of good intention.  It keeps my scalp moisturized and helps me to maintain thick and healthy hair growth.  I recommend this prooduct to all of my friends and family and they've noticed te benefits as well.  If you're looking for a product to help you combat itching, flaking/ dandruff while promoting shine and healthy looking hair, try my personal fav!

Caring for your hair extensions

Awesome Remy Hair Care Silk Serum is what I use to maintain my extensions.  A few pumps a day keeps the dryness away!  I love how silky and soft this product leaves my hair feeling and did I mention it smells like heaven.  Even after leaving the gym, I add a few pumps, brush, and my hair is good as new!  The Hawaiian Silky Argan Oil Sleek & Shine Mist is new to my collection and I grade it slightly under the Remy Silk Serum simply because it doesn't have a smell and leaves my floor feeling like a ice rink.  However, I do love that this product adds extra shine to my hair that the Remy Silk missing.  Hence, I find myself using both.  As long as these products aren't used in excess your hair will continue to feel moisturized, light-weight, and last longer.
