New Month, New Haircare Routine

I've been on a crazy journey with my hair. From attempting to dye it Rihanna red, to cutting a Niki-Minaj inspired full-fringe. Not some of my proudest of moments to look back on, put it that way.

For the majority of my life I have constantly straightened my hair day in, day out, which as you can imagine has left it extremely brittle, damaged and caused the loss of my natural curl pattern. Last month I decided enough was enough and that I was going to embrace my curls and start taking better care of my hair. Since doing so I've noticed such a change, my hair is healthier and has given me a whole new look which I love! 

When it comes to skincare and haircare, I truly believe less is more, which is why my haircare routine is pretty minimal as I don't like putting too much product on my hair. I believe I've found the best products for managing curly hair, so I couldn't wait to share them with you!

When in the shower, I only use conditioner. I never use shampoo as I find shampoo causes my hair to become very dry as it totally strips out all the oils. Now, CALLING ALL CURLY HAIRED GALS, If you don't already, you NEED Cantu in your life!

Cantu is a brand formulated especially for those with curly hair. I can hand on heart say that their hydrating cream conditioner is the best conditioner I have ever used and ever will use because it makes my hair so soft, and really moisturises the curls, causing any knots to easily drop out, making it easier to wash. Not only that but it also smells amazing too! 

Once I'm out of the shower, I gently comb through my hair with a wide tooth comb and leave it to part-dry before adding in a generous amount of oil. I do tend to switch up which oil I use, but recently I've been using the Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco by OGX. Since my hair is quite badly damaged from the years of straightening, I always make sure I have plenty of oil in my hair to prevent split ends and breakage. 

If I wash my hair in the morning and plan to go out the same day, once my hair is dry I use the Cantu Next Day Comeback Curl Revitalizer. This is my absolute holy grail haircare product and I can't stress enough how much it helps me tame my curly hair. This spray is literally a miracle spray which eliminates frizz and causes curls to magically reform. This spray was my lifesaver when I was on holiday because we all know that humid, salty air causes havoc for us curly girls. A few sprays of this and my hair was good to go again! Think of it as the curly haircare equivalent to dry shampoo... You NEED this in your life! 
If I was to wash my hair in the evening, then I would let it dry naturally overnight after I apply the oil, and then spray the Cantu Curl Revitalizer in my hair the next day to help style it. 

So that's all I do! Pretty simple! If you want me to do a video showing you all the steps then make sure to let me know, now I have a YouTube channel, haha! 

What are your go-to haircare products?
