Hair Loves

Love 1: My hair has discovered the love of ACV Rinses. Well, I guess discovered isn’t the right word since I never tried to use them before, but now that I have I can’t get enough of them. I started doing the rinses two weeks ago, and immediately noticed a difference in how my hair dried and felt after my wash. I tried Roux Porosity Control when I was home, but it didn’t have quite the same effect as the rinses do to my hair. I do them once a week, as my final rinse after I deep condition, shampoo, and then use regular conditioner.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Here are a few Benefits of ACV Rinses:

gets rid of minerals, deposits and/or other harmful substances in our water
restores the PH in our hair
allows our hair to retain moisture because it seals our hair cuticles

ACV rinses have definitely become a new part of my regimen.

Love 2: A couple weeks ago I ran out of my usual moisturizer, the name escapes me at the moment. I bounced around using random things I had lying around, but finally decided to invest in something new. I decided to try the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Silk Touch Leave-in Cream. It was light enough that it wouldn’t weigh down my hair, but still able to moisturize it well.

NTM Leave-In

I think I’ve finally found something my hair really agrees with, I just wish the bottle was a little bigger. I feel like it will run out sooner than most other moisturizers.

Love 3: Last but not least, I splurged and ordered Dabur Vatika Coconut Oil.

Dabur Vatika Coconut Oil

My hair loves this stuff. After moisturizing with NTM and sealing with the oil over night, I woke up with hair that was much softer and still moisturized. This was a huge turnaround because I ran out of my regular coconut oil over the Christmas break, and have been sealing with either Jojoba oil, which is way too light for my hair and a mixture of EVOO and Castor oil, which just makes my hair hard and stiff in the morning. This is another thing I will be adding to my staples list. When I have the time (and money), I’ll have to order more and hoard them for later.
