Okay so let chat about hair care. Do you see a hair stylist often? If you do then your hair is most likely getting washed with products that have uv protection, nutrients and a ton of amino acids that will help keep your hair healthy and shiny.
One thing people don’t realize is that products that you buy from target and maybe even sally’s have a lot of silicon based ingredients in it which can be a good and bad thing. You are coating your hair with products that will coat your hair to make it look healthy and shiny after a wash but really its just a mask over top of your hair that just sits on top and doesn’t deliver any goodness to the hair stand its self.
These are 911 hair purchase aka a one and done. You don’t want you use these products constantly because over time it will strip you hair and cause a lot of product build up which may take a while to transition back to health.
