I am still obsessed with beauty products.
I am still on a journey for longer, healthier hair. It just took me some time to figure out some things about myself. 30 came and went, and so did some enlightenment. So here I am, loving me, living life and doing just fine.
I would like to talk about my current regimen. It's not product heavy for a reason. I am over being a product junkie. It's a waste of money, honestly. I am a sticking to something that works for my hair and helps me keep my sanity as I transition. Today though, I will just be covering the shampoo portion.
I have a method to my madness. I alternate between shampoo and co wash creme with one clarifying wash a month. The reason for this is due to my frequent oil treatments whether it be for a scalp massage or keeping my scalp dandruff free. My hair is thick as well, so I use a decent amount of product. All this has to come out and co washing isn't sufficient for total product build up removal. This is what 4 weeks of hair washing looks like for me:
Week 1: clarifying wash with clarifying shampoo
Week 2: Co wash with co wash creme
Week 3:shampoo wash with moisturizing shampoo
Week 4: co wash with co wash creme
Then I repeat. It may seem crazy, but it works for me.
Here are the products I use:
This shampoo is free of parabens, sulfates, and other harsh detergents. It does still remove build up like a dream. I picked mine up from Sally for $6.99.
This is so much more than a conditioner. It gently removes debris from the hair and is gentle on the scalp. It's affordable and easily accessible as it is sold at Dollar General for about $5.50
This shampoo is incredibly moisturizing. It is not all natural, but it cleans without stripping my hair. The price is right as well at $4.99 for a large bottle. It's a good staple item. It is not paraben or sulfate free, but my hair likes it.
I will be back with information my current conditioning regimen.
