Everyday Hair Care Routine

I bleach my hair once a month which means that I must do everything in my power to keep my hair healthy. I have go-to products that I use on a regular basis.  

Lately, since I have been bleaching more and more hair each time I go to the hair salon, I have noticed my hair is drying out. Which is totally normal since bleach is anything but natural for hair. However, I made sure to discuss at home hair care with my stylist to find the correct products that would give me the best results. I wash my hair every day, so I use a regular shampoo and conditioner to keep my hair from drying out. Aside from that, I use a purple shampoo that I use about once a week to keep my hair from going yellow. Other than that, I use two products to keep my hair strong and soft. I use the Truss Net Mask once or twice a week as a mask to sit on my hair while I shower. I typically will shampoo and condition my hair and then apply the mask. I will let it sit on my hair anywhere between five to ten minutes (which is what the company recommends) and then rinse it out. Once I am out of the shower, before brushing my hair I will apply the Truss Brush Thermo-Activated Keratin using one pump on my ends and then one pump on the rest of my hair. The company does recommend that heat should be used after the product is applied; however, I have used both heat and no heat and I’ve gotten the same result either way. 

Both of those products might be considered on the pricey side depending your budget. For me, I don’t mind spending as much because in order to get good haircare, you need to invest. However, I have used two other products that are cheaper and work well as well. The Paul Mitchell Lavender Mint Conditioning Leave-In Spray is a product that I would apply once I was out of the shower. I would focus the product on my ends and my hair would be easier to brush out. Also, it provided a boost of softness to my hair. The Paul Mitchell Lavender Mint Overnight Moisture Therapy was a product I used because it not only made my hair soft, but it also is meant to help you sleep. The product is meant to be used right before you go to sleep and should envelop you in a cloud of lavender. I would brush my hair out and then apply this all over my head. I would then brush my hair again to make sure it was distributed evenly.  

Hair care varies with each person. Just because these products work well with my hair, does not mean they will with yours. My number one tip would be to talk to your stylist about your hair type and products that will work best for you. If you don’t go to a stylist, then there is a plethora of quizzes online that go in depth about your hair type and what products will be best for you. Also, trial and error can never hurt. I remember when I was first trying to figure out what hair masks worked best for me, I tried so many that I would be at my local supermarket. Typically, I would buy anything by the hair care brand I trusted most.
