So anyone who has massively color treated hair knows the importance of maintaining a good hair regimen. I am naturally a dark brunette but as of lately I have become a very light blonde (a la Gwen Stefani or Marilyn Monroe type blonde). So keeping my hair strong, moisturized, and healthy is SUPER important. These are the products I use to keep my hair looking smooth and silky. All products are available at Target, for approximately $4-$7 each.
First the Renpure. It comes in three different fragrances, and all of them are lovely smelling. The “Sweet Pomegranate” is pictured above, but it also comes in a “Rosemary Mint,” and “Lavender.” Renpure’s cleansing conditioner is a product I tried purely out of curiosity, and because I had been reading so many great things about using cleansing conditioners in place of shampoo. Many shampoos contain sulfates which can dry out your hair, this product does not. Also, because of the nature of shampooing (the lathering process), hair can also become dried out. The difference with cleansing conditioners is that it does not lather. This does take a little while to get used to (or at least it did for me). Once you have coated the hair in the cleansing conditioner, let it sit or a few minutes, and then rinse.
Next the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. This comes in a few different options as well, they include, “Strong,” “Moist,” and “Color.” I prefer the “Strong” (photographed above) because I just like the smell a bit better than the other types.
I use this as a conditioner every time I wash my hair. After leaving it in for three minutes you will definitely notice that your hair is much softer, and why the name of the product includes the word “miracle.”
Last, but not least, the coconut oil. I’m sure by now you have heard about all the great uses and benefits of coconut oil, and for hair care it is no less. I use it as a deep conditioning mask once a week (if I’m being really good), or every other week. Basically I just scoop it out into my hands, rub it together to get it to melt a bit, and then rub it into my hair starting at the ends. After I coat my entire head, I wrap my hair into a loose bun on the top of my head and clip it down to secure it. I then cover it with a shower cap and go to sleep. In the morning I wash with the Renpure cleansing conditioner and follow up with the Aussie 3 minute miracle.
*On a side note, I typically will wash/condition my hair no more than three times a week using the above process.
Happy Hair-doing! 🙂 xo
