Hair Care Routine + FoxyBae wand review

A few of my most-asked questions from readers include how do you curl your hair? and how do you keep your hair healthy? Today, I'm going over every little detail of my haircare... including how to keep your hair healthy and make it grow long, and even how many times I shampoo it per week. At the bottom of this post, you'll find a YouTube video showing exactly how I curl my hair!

To preface this post, let's just say that I didn't always have the healthiest hair. In middle school, I colour my hair from dark to blonde and straightened my hair almost every single day before school... I remember it looking almost like straw :/ It wasn't until I stopped straighten my hair, let it dry naturally and seriously started conditioning it that I noticed a huge difference. So if your hair is not super healthy right now - there's hope! Let's start with some Q&A questions...


Q: How often do you shampoo your hair?
A: I wash and condition my hair around 2-3 times per week... it depends on what I have going on, but I definitely don't wash it every day. (FYI I take a bath or use a shower cap on days when I don't wash my hair!) Not shampooing every day is actually really good for your hair - there are a lot of natural oils in your hair that make it healthier and shinier and you strip your hair of these oils every time you shampoo. I typically wash mine at the beginning of the week... once I curl it, I won't have to for a few days. Sometimes I touch up the curls with a curling wand if I need to, but that's it. I also love braiding my hair very often so when you do braids it doesn't see at all if your hair is greesy so that is super cool. I'm obsessed with braids :)


Q: What shampoo and conditioner do you use?
A: I like to switch up my shampoo and conditioner a lot so that my hair doesn't get too used to one product - it does better that way! Right now I'm using Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner . I've used before L'Oreal's  line for a few years and really love their products because they're really gentle and moisturizing.  I'll probably go back to using it once I finish my current products.

Q: Do you recommend taking vitamins for hair growth?
A: I have heard mixed reviews on vitamins - they work for some people, and don't work for others. I'm personally not using vitamins for hair.


Q: Can you recommend some good deep conditioner?
A: I'm a HUGE fan of coconut oil... I apply  once a week and I think coconut is the main reason my hair stays pretty healthy.



Q: What's one hair product you can't live without?
Definitely John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir , Milk Shake whipped cream  , Milk Shake Leave In Conditioner , GK Silver Shampoo  . A little bit goes a long way, so this products will last you a long time. I apply it before blow drying my hair, and sometimes use a small amount on dry hair to tame flyways and condition split ends. It's truly a miracle worker!

Q: Any tips for growing out your hair?
Taking care of your body by eating the right foods is actually the best way to make your hair grow... Make sure you're getting enough protein and vitamins in your diet. I've also heard that brushing your scalp with a wire-bristled brush can help stimulate the hair follicles and promote hair growth. Also - they say you're supposed to get a trim every six weeks, but I totally don't follow that rule. Don't get a trim unless you need one, otherwise you're just preventing your hair from getting longer!

Q: What dry shampoo do you use?
I use Batiste Dry Shampoo - blush and  Cien Dry Shampoo - California and  I use it a lot, especially if I want to get away with not washing my hair another day. 

Q: Do you wear hair extensions?
Yes I have extension but I don't wear it every day just if I want to have big chunky braids then I will use it for the volume and I like it so much.



Q: What heat products do you use to curl your hair?
To curl my hair I use this 3 in 1 curling wand - rose gold set  with the 1" attachment. It really is an amazing curling wand… it's an investment, but definitely worth it.





Q: How do your curl your hair?
Woohoo, final question! I actually filmed a YouTube video and it's much easier to show you guys how I curl my hair, rather than try to type out how to do it. Sorry if I'm awkward on camera, but hopefully this video helps some! The curling wand I use is here . The video how I do makeup and hair is here
