Hair Care Routine
Let me start by saying that I have my own hair issues. Sometimes my hair is flat, lacks volume at the roots, dries to a lackluster wave mess and I have dandruff. So basically, these products help me to fix all of those issues and sort me out. I also have dyed hair, as my natural hair is speckled grey - I’ve had the grey hair of a 50+ year old since I was 15 - so I can’t use anything that would strip out the dye I pay so much for.

I have been washing my hair with this Redken shampoo for about two months and my scalp has been the best it’s been in years. I honestly don’t know what it is about it but it works. My hair is less dry than with the medical shampoo I used to use. This is all I use in the shower as my scalp doesn’t like conditioner.
Before my hair dries, I spray in a leave in conditioner. I am currently using this one up, but don’t really know if any better than any other. I spray it from about my ears down and comb through with either my Tangle Teezer or my fingers, bringing the residue on my hands back up to the top.
The Redken spray is what I use on days I have not washed my hair. when my hair is already dried but not styled to make it a bit softer and Igive a little more moisture to it. I also spray it from about my ears down and comb through with emy Tangle Teezer or my fingers.
On days when I’d really rather my hair dried curly, I’ll put Argania Oil in instead of the leave-in conditioner. It’s a great way t add intensive moisture into my hair. I do have to be careful though, too much and my hair goes really quite greasy. I always run this through my hairs from my ears down with my fingers as I don’t want to get a comb or anything covered in oil.
Whenever I curl or straighten my hair, I try to remember to use a heat protectant. This is still the one I used in high school since I got lazy for a while there and didn’t use them. To be honest I should use it when I blow dry my hair, but I do that about once every couple weeks and I get lazy then because I just want it dry for some reason. I try to let my hair dry naturally when I can, but dry it sometimes if I need to go somewhere or if it’s a cold day, but often half dry it and air dry the rest.
My chosen brush or comb is my Tangle Teezer. I think it’s the flexibility of the teeth on it but its kind to my hair and brushed out curls perfectly. If I straighten my hair, I brush that out too to check I’ve got everywhere straight.
When my hair is getting a little oily but I don’t have time to wash it, I’ll use this Redken dry shampoo. It doesn’t leave a white cast if sprayed sparingly and combed in well. It’s also great for giving volume right at the roots. It’s a great oomph giver. I sometimes get an itchy scalp if I already have dandruff with this, but since I’ve been using the Redken shampoo it’s been fine.
