Happy Hair. Happy You!
I know it sounds cheesy, but it is true. Happy Healthy Hair = A Happy Healthy Girl.
Have you ever had hair struggles? Whether it couldn’t grow, or it was extremely damaged and breaking at the ends? How did it make you feel? Frustrated? Annoyed? Self-conscious?
Well, you are not alone!
I had hair struggles for years and now I can finally say that my hair is back to being healthy. It all started my senior year of college when my hair started falling out. I had very long, thick hair, so I was used to some shedding, but something about this was different. I was constantly pulling hundreds of strands from my hairbrush, my shower drain, and vacuuming them up from my bedroom floor. My hair began to look noticeably thinner, and I, in turn, started to freak out.
I spoke to doctors and was told to take biotin, Vitamin B, and omega fish oils. But, nothing really seemed to work. Eventually, I came to the realization that my hair-loss culprit was stress. It was right around the same time when I found out that my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Lets just say I was eating terribly, sleeping terribly, and bottom line: not taking care of my body.
Fast forward a few years, not only would you think my head of hair was from a completely different person, but you would think I was a completely different person. Like I said earlier, happy hair = happy girl!
Yes, the lifestyle and health changes were a major factor; I was no longer stressed, eating much better, and overall way happier. Along the journey back to healthy hair, I experimented with products the whole time and took note of how they made my hair look and feel.
The following are my current routines and the reason I’ve been getting compliments. People have been remarking that my hair looks shiny, thick, and healthy and, dude: it totally does.
So let’s get to the good stuff because I shouldn’t be the only one with good hair. I want YOU to feel FABULOUS with gorgeous locks too!
I’ve gotta give credit to Head & Shoulders.
I rotate these 4 products and they are my saviors.
This first routine is when my hair is EXTRA dirty (you know, the times I go three days without washing, yup it happens) and I’m looking to transform my hair back into its fresh, shiny self. I use Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner.
They are jampacked with healthy ingredients. The shampoo is super creamy and provides a nice lather that I know is getting my hair clean but it still leaves the strands feeling smooth rather than squeaky. And the conditioner, if you could imagine what flowing hair in heaven feels like, that is how it makes my hair feel. I am always so pleased with how gorgeous and 100% flake-free my hair looks afterwards. Somehow it helps correct the everyday damage without weighing down your hair!
This second routine is for the days I am in a serious rush. We all have those days that we either: woke up late for work, or tried to squeeze in a gym session, right? Well, whenever I am crunched with time I use my Head & Shoulders Green Apple 2 in 1. It is shampoo and condition in a one “wash/rinse” situation. At first I was skeptical but even though you are missing a step you would never know. Frizzy to silky in 1 wash. You save time and your hair still looks and feels flawless! AMAZING!
The third routine is when I want to keep the volume and bounce but get that delicious, refreshing citrus smell; I use my Head & Shoulders Green Apple Conditioner. One sniff of this stuff and you get warm and fuzzies throughout your whole body; immediate happiness. It’s not as thick as the Silky and Smooth so I use this when my hair just needs a breath of fresh air versus serious repair.
And that’s basically it, guys. So if your hair is failing, ask yourself if you are a giant ball of stress; if you are, no need to worry. Find a way to relax and start using these products. It will take time but before you know it, not only will your hair be happier but you will too. Life is about looking fabulous, feeling fabulous and making the most of every moment, every day with fabulous hair! It’s time to LIVE HEAD FIRST.
You can get all these products at Target (and common, who doesn’t love a Target shopping spree. I find they have the best beauty products eva!), and there’s a killer DEAL going on. Woop woop! If you buy 3, you’ll get a $5 Target gift card! This amazing offer is good through 5/16.
