In order to keep my hair healthy I only wash, blow dry and straighten it every 4 days. I know several people who blow dry and straighten multiple times per week, but that can be very damaging to hair, so I’ve found that I can keep my hair clean and healthy (and growing!) by only using heat occasionally.
When I do my hair I tend to follow the same process each time.
As you can probably tell from my favorites, I am a total brand loyalist. I used to jump from product to product trying to find the perfect one, but now that I’ve found products I love, I am sticking with them!
I start off my hair ‘ritual’ by doing a pre-shampoo deep condition with coconut oil. I part my hair into four sections and apply coconut oil to my scalp in 1/2-inch pieces and then massage it in. I then apply coconut oil to the ends of my hair and comb it all through. I then pull my hair up into a bun and let it sit for about 30 minutes. (I usually apply a face mask in that time).
When I’m ready to wash my hair I generally do it twice to be sure the oil is completely out of my hair (otherwise it will remain oily). I adore the RUSK Clairfy shampoo! It smells so fresh and it gets my hair really clean.
I condition my hair with RUSK DeepShine conditioner and tend to leave it in for about 5 minutes in the shower. It’s very moisturizing and smells wonderful as well.
When I’m ready to blow dry and straighten, I spray RUSK 12 in 1 into my towel-dried hair, comb it through and let it air dry a bit before I actually start to blow dry it. The 12 in 1 product is a leave-in product that controls frizz, smooths, detangles, moisturizes, strengthens, adds body and acts as a heat protectant.
These products are my go-to items and I’ve repurchased them all several times. I started using the RUSK line about a year ago after I started with my Anti-Curl Kerashine treatments.
What are your favorite hair products? Do you stick to one line or are you always trying new products?
