Your hair has to mirror your inner strength – Don’t let it break

health, Style

Hair snapping because it’s all your fault is the worst mood ever, it’s deflating but the only one to blame is yourself and instead of moping take action and build a healthier routine for your locks!

I remember when I was 15 years old killing for long and beautiful hair. It was red and curly so I ticked the boxes but I was still not satisfied. It was splitting because I wasn’t thinking about how I was washing or brushing my hair. Creating this uneven shape when I would let my hair down. Gross.

All the tablets and coconut oil in the world couldn’t save me. But one tablet did! Cut right to the chase and saved me a lot of time! A month to be exact to which my hair grew 3 inches!

It’s NOW down to the top part of my booty, from just good hair care and no tablets for years. When I left for uni (no tablets but good hair care) it was just in the middle part of my back! Before it grew to just the middle my hair was to my shoulders. I’ve gone through three very big stages with my hair.

So if you feel like my fifteen year old self then hear are some hidden truths no one tells you about or like to tell you in fact.

Washing:

– When using shampoo and conditioner, don’t just wash out the conditioner with the same temperature of water. Let the product sit in the hair for minutes and only apply from the middle down. If you leave on top of your hair it will be greasy the next coming day and you will just need another wash a day later. Regular washes take natural oils out.

– Wash out the conditioner with COLD water. It’s horrible the first few times because your relaxed in lush warm water and then a nasty awakening. But pretty hurt as Beyoncé says!

– Don’t dry with a towel use a top, a cotton top! Because a towel is rough and depending on the way you move the towel on your hair can really affect the ends.

Brushing:

– Brush down and then up, sounds confusing but it’s self explanatory. You brush from the ends of your hair all the way up to the scalp

– Do this to avoid bringing nots down to the bottom and as a result you end up ragging your hair like an impatient fool. Maybe it’s just me but curly hair is hard to comb and brushing down and then up is less time consuming!

Tablets:

So many tablets out there saying they are the best for quick effect, if you read their ingredients most of them have a small amount of biotin. This biotin you have probably heard of before is the holy grail!!! You need to buy pure biotin in order to achieve gorgeous long hair. I bought mine from Holland and Barrette for £15! Click the link to get yours. It’s pricey but the results are instant, unfortunately instant everywhere else too…

P.s quick note to say sorry to my regular followers and growing followers last few months for not posting as much. I’ve been hitting the ground running with University. Excuses I know but a girls got to do what she got to do. I was writing this post in the bath thinking let’s go and get some more biotin because that harsh weather is creeping in and that is the worst for hair breaking when you tie it up in a bobble as much as I do!

So I hope you ladies have found gold in my post today, and thanks for reading everyone. My guy followers this is great for you too in case you want a beard or bolding.

Upside down hair care

Style

I was debating whether to put this image upside down to make my point, but that would be silly. The picture does clearly indicate messy hair, clearly my top tip was well in use, prior to this picture.

My hair has grown beyond belief. It is crazy how much it grew in just a year, from simply hanging my head upside down and giving my scalp a deep massage. It was the only thing I did everyday for a month and my hair grew 3 inches.

I remember buying hair extensions 3 months before, and what a waste that was, £80 down the drain, I never use them unless I need to make my hair look more volumised because my hair just grew so much.

It for sure seems like a myth and maybe for some this was, but patients is a virtue and here are my step by step guides just to give you the absolute lock down on this hair hack.


BIBLE:

– Upside down massage works, rub your head for 1 minute in any Argon oil or coconut oil that will help condition the hair and also feel smooth rather than rough

– To speed things along take biotin tablets. They are amazing!!!! THEY ARE KNOWN FOR MAKING EVERY PART OF YOUR BODY HAIR GROWN LIKE BIG FOOT, whats wrong with a double shave everyday! Only joking, but it did make my arm hairs grow so long!!

– Always keep track, you may not see a difference but if you take picture of your growth and keep an album dedicated to your hair journey in your phone you can see the difference week by week.

– Eat lots of fish! lot’s of organic and fresh fish!
