Being stuck at home the past three months has truly allowed me the time to focus on some much-needed self-care. I have gone back to taking care of my own nails, skin, and hair. This is something that I did for many years, however, I have as of recently depended on the salon to care for these things. Quarantine for me has meant re-learning the essentials to self-care, especially for my hair.
I am a total mess when it comes to my hair! I am simply never satisfied with it. I change the color, I cut it, I add extensions, cut it again, bleach it, darken it, straighten it… the list just goes on and on. It is truly amazing my hairdresser has stuck around as long as she has. The past few months, however have forced me to STOP messing with my hair. I have not had the option to go to the salon and therefore have gone back to my hair basics. This includes, single process root coverage, cutting my ends, and treating it for major dryness and split ends!
It truly is amazing what a couple months of not wreaking havoc on your hair can do! I have found a great all-natural, ammonia-free semi-permanent hair color that allows me to cover my roots without depositing long-lasting and damaging color onto my hair. I have also discovered my ends can be easily trimmed, as my hair is all one length. Lastly, I have discovered the magic of essential oils for hair repair.
Essential oils are a savior for your hair! They do everything you can possibly think of. They add moisture. Repair the hair strand, soften hair, enhance shine, and repair split ends. I found the BEST oil ampules for those who have dry, damaged, or dull hair. The Rene Furterer Karite Nutri Intense Nourishing Oil Treatment is the perfect weekly hair treatment to revive hair that needs a lot of TLC. These moisture-rich oil ampules truly make a big difference in your hair’s overall health. Used once a week, they will boost shine, repair breakage, and protect your hair from dryness and further damage.
I have been using these ampules for the past three months and can truly say they have made a huge difference in my hair! All you need to so to apply these ampules, is dampen hair from rots to ends. Apply oil from roots to ends. Leave on for a couple hours and wash out. Do this one time per week and your hair will be completely revived! I personally like to leave the oil in for a whole day. I simply apply the oil, braid my hair and forget its there until the end of the day!
Self care is easy when you have the right tools! And this is a definite “right” tool for healthy and shiny hair. For more information watch our youtube channel! Stay happy, stay healthy and stay beautiful!
