I’m all about my hair. Hair products, hair color, hair extensions, and the overall health of my hair means everything to me. I was raised in a hair salon 20 + years watching, working and learning with the best of the best with my mom a cosmologist of 40+ years. Hair obsessed at a young age. I’m going to share my holy grail hair care products for strong healthy hair.

How do I keep my hair strong and healthy?
Redken is a brand I grew up on. I’ve tried many other brands but I feel redken is unbeatable. Not only is it affordable but it is truly amazing.
Shampoo, conditioner and conditioning mask – My holy grail shampoo, conditioner and conditioning mask is Redken All Soft I bought the entire line. ive been using this since I was little. I just started using the mega and i feel like] their old forumla for the original all soft is best. I’ve tried branching off and tested out different shampoos , conditioners and conditioning masks and treatments nothing compares. All soft leaves my hair silky smooth. Never heavy or greasy. I don’t know what it is about this line but my hair doesn’t look the same if I don’t use it. It’s magic.
Leave in treatment- Pureology 21 Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier this does not leave your hair heavy or greasy. This leave in treatment is a miracle . I discovered this at a salon when I had Balayage done she used it on my hair and I instantly fell in love and bought a bottle. It Repairs dry damaged hair. I couldn’t stop touching my hair
Shine Serum– Lanza Keratin healing oil is one of my top favorites. I love keratin oil my hair is nourished and happy whenever I apply it to my ends. I also use this oil on my hair extensions to help keep them healthy. I always get asked if I get keratin treatments or Brazilian blow outs. It’s just the keratin oil.
Heat protectant-redken iron shape 11 I am horrible when it comes to using a heat protectant I’m not going to lie I forget 70% of the time because I’m in a rush but YOU MUST USE HEAT PROTECTANT! I definitely recommend you do! Heat protectant really protects your hair with your everyday heat damage. Blow dryer, straightener etc it shields your hair from split ends , breakage, and damage.
Hairspray– Redken Control Addict 28 Extra High-Hold Hairspray (anti humidity) – I rarely use hairspray only on special occasions but i love love love this hairspray !!! Redken has endless amounts of BOMB hairsprays I simply love this one because it really does help with humidity it holds your curls or whatever hairstyle you’re trying to hold and LASTS FOR DAYS !!!
Dry shampoo – Batiste is the best and affordable . You can’t go wrong with batiste dry shampoo. when I don’t want to wash my hair because I really want my hair to last me one or 2 more days but it looks greasy I use dry shampoo.
Oil treatment– I love to do oil treatments 2xs for the month. coconut oil is the best and natural oil treatment. I like to mix in rosehip oil and rosemary into my coconut oil. Rosemary helps with hair growth. My hair always hit a certain length and now my natural hair is past my chest. I leave it in over night and wash it out in the morning. I apply an oil treatment to my hair once a week if I’m busy once every 2 weeks. If your looking to grow your hair I would recommend sticking to 1 x per week for maximum results.
Give your hair a break from heat and styling. I know this is hard but sometimes your hair just needs a break and a good oil treatment. On weekends lately I’ve been relaxing with the family at home so that’s when I will do oil treatments let my hair air dry and leave it alone .
Don’t wear your hair up to much it pulls and breaks your hair. UHHH I wish someone told me this sooner. I had so much broken hair and hair loss from this. Don’t wear your hair up to much! If I have to wear my hair up I use silk scrunchies because it’s not as harmful on your hair. But I still watch how much I have my hair up and how tight i have it.
