My Hair

Ever since I was a little kid people have asked about my hair. "Is it naturally that curly?" "Is that your real hair color?" "What products do you use to make it look like that?" "Do you curl it?"
Well, today I'm going to share with you all of my hair secrets...they aren't secrets at all and most of them have been used by women {and probably men too!} for centuries. 


 My hair color is completely natural. When I was really little {1-8} I was actually somewhat 
blonde. Then over the years it got darker...there were some bad times in middle school {who doesn't have those} when I straightened it every day and it looked brown but we are past that and now it is an interesting red/blonde/brown mix. I have no clue what you would actually call my hair color so if y'all have any ideas, let me know. 


 My hair is naturally this curly. When I was little it went through straight phases and middle school was poofy {ugh} but then in high school I finally started accepting my hair. I do use a few things to make sure it looks good everyday {even then it doesn't}. 
First, I take showers at night because I sleep with my hair wet. This really helps it to be really curly come morning. If I shower in the morning or during the day and sleep on dry hair it gets so much more frizz to it. Second, I started using mousse on my hair to keep the frizz down & make the curls form together a little bit better a while back. I love, love, love Nioxin 3D Styling Bodifying Foam. You can buy it at Ulta for about $17 and you can always use one of those coupons on it! To use it, when I get out of the shower, I lightly towel off my hair {there are still water droplets falling out of it} and I squirt {kind of a lot} of mousse in my hand and apply it to all of my hair. Then I pick my hair up from the bottom and scrunch it up until it looks like it would when it's curly. Then you follow step one and go to bed with your hair wet. 


 I don't brush my hair. I used to, all throughout high school. And it looked pretty good. But then I forgot a brush at Camp Texas and ever since then it's looked even better. However, I will say that I brush it once or twice a month to fix my part because it can be unruly #curlyhairprobs. 


 This may seem unseemly but I only wash my hair when it begins to feel oily or greasy...which is very rare. I have really dry hair {not sure why, it has always been this way}. However, when I do wash my hair I don't condition, mainly because it seems like such a hassle to buy {hahaha}. I wash, typically, with Nexxus or TRESemme Flawless Curls. I honestly think not washing your hair will give you your best hair, but that's just me. I find that when I wash it my hair is super frizzy and flat, but the longer I don't wash it the better the volume and the less frizz there is! 


 In other pointers, I do straighten my hair. However, I don't do it every day, or once every week, or even once a month! I typically straighten it two to three times a year and that makes me happy. I use a  KPak Professional ReconstRx Vapor Iron with Vapor Fuel. It is expensive but it is honestly one of the greatest things I have ever purchased. You put this liquid into the iron and it adds nutrients back to your hair as you straighten. No more gunky stuff has to go in before you straighten because the straightener does it for you. I don't have damaged hair and I can vouch for this product 100%. 

If you have any questions about my hair after this, please let me know! Feel free to comment below or email me anytime! I also don't cut my hair for months at a time...this isn't because I am opposed to cutting my hair. It's because I really trust my hair stylist and I kind of am afraid to hand my hair over to someone else {she's the only person that has cut my hair}. So I get it cut when I am home in the winter and in the summer. I would not suggest this but if you do, it's not the end of the world. Hope this helps/answers any questions you may have-xoxo darling, Hayden.
