Ahh, yes. I’ve definitely done this before! Okay so here’s like…an overview of all of your options.
1- take Hair, Skin, and Nail vitamins. That’s exactly what it says on the bottle, and it supports collagen and biotin. Take up to 3 a day. It’s like..$5 a bottle. Not expensive and you can get it at Target or Walmart.
2- Stop using heat on your hair. This is the hardest one for me, since I have curly hair and like straightening it. But if you can keep your hair looking good without heat, that will be one of the best things for your hair. It’s going to look so much healthier.
3. Even though you’re trying to grow it out, keep getting it trimmed. Not a ton, because your hair grows a 1/2 inch a month. Just enough to get the split ends off. Go to your stylist and tell them you want a “baby, micro trim.” They should understand :)
4. Deep condition. Depending on the porosity and texture of your hair, deep condition every to every other week. If you have fine hair, ONLY every other week. If you have thicker, coarser hair, you can get away with deep conditioning more. Just stay away from doing it any more than that, because it WILL weigh your hair down, and that won’t look good.
Hopefully these helped! I’m still in the process of growing mine out as well! You’ll get the most results from doing all 4, but doing even just 1 of them will tremendously help your hair. Good luck! Keep me updated! :)
Not awkward at all :) We all have hair! I need to go get my lip done again soon too!
Okay so- if you have a Sally’s Beauty Supply around, that would be your best bet. I would suggest the GiGi products from there. There is a microwavable wax pot that doesn’t use any strips, and is about $18. Sounds pricey, but you can re-use it till its gone. Worth the money!
What you have to be careful of with any at home waxing, is that you have to make sure to put it on THICK. It’s better too thick, than too thin. It won’t come off it’s its too thin and it HURTS. So just…apply it so that you cant see through it. If it’s a thin enough layer that you can see the hairs you’re waxing, apply more. Follow the instructions, and use all the before and after products they give you to use. They are there for a reason!
So if I were you I’d get:GiGi Strip Free Honee Hair Removal System
Good luck, and let me know if you have any more questions! Glad to help! :)
It doesn’t interest me much, so I don’t post it.But if any of you want to see it, I’d be glad to post some! Just let me know!
Sorry if the posts are a little slow for the next 2 days or so. Got my wisdom teeth out this morning- so I’ll be a bit out of it for a few days! I’ll try to post a few at least though :) Let me know if you have any requests or suggestions!
of course! I’ll get right on it! if anyone else has requests, feel free to fill my inbox! they help me tons!
1-Clarify with a sulfate shampoo (for the last time) before beginning. This will cleanse your hair of any silicones – ingredients in some hair products that are not water soluble
3-Replace your brush with a wide-toothed comb. It is easier to damage curly hair with a brush, whether wet or dry. Untangling hair while dry with any tool is not a good idea; separating the curls dry just causes more frizz. Instead of a brush, switch to a wide-toothed comb, or even better, just use your fingers (when the hair is wet). Using your fingers to untangle curly hair helps to bring out the curls much better than running your hands over your head to prevent frizz. If it is difficult to untangle your hair this way, add more conditioner to your hair when wet or trim any unruly ends.
4-Stop shampooing your hair. Most shampoos contain harsh, drying sulfates that are extremely damaging for curly hair (ammonium laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, etc.). These common detergents found in shampoos make curly hair frizzy and uncooperative. Conditioner can be used sufficiently to clean the hair (see the next step). Also, more gentle shampoos that contain mild cleansers (i.e. cocamidopropyl betaine or coco betaine) can be used occasionally or more often for wavier hair types.
5-Wash your scalp with conditioner (conditioner washing). Begin your routine by wetting your hair in the shower. Distribute conditioner on your entire scalp and massage your scalp with the tips of your fingers (not your fingernails). This rubbing action and the resultant friction will loosen dirt, product residue, and dandruff which can then be rinsed away. (Be sure to avoid silicones in your hair products, see the Warnings.) Thoroughly rinse your scalp afterwards, still massaging with your finger tips as you do so.Depending on how dry your scalp is, you can conditioner wash, once a week, twice a week, or every day, but watch out for hair build-up!
6-Distribute conditioner throughout all of your hair and untangle gently. Use your hands or a wide-toothed comb. Start by untangling bottom sections of your hair and then gradually move upwards. Let the conditioner sit in your hair for five minutes or so for extra moisture. You also may want to part your hair at this point with a comb. It’s recommended that you part your hair to the side to prevent “triangle-shaped” hair.
7-Do the final rinse of your hair with cool or cold water. This will decrease frizz and add shine. Leave some conditioner in your hair, especially in dry sections like the ends. It’s fine to run your fingers through your hair gently, but do not comb your hair after this point.
8-Apply products to your hair. Do this while your hair is soaking wet if you have curlier hair, but wait five minutes or so if you have medium to wavy curly hair. Put product in your hands and rub them together to emulsify. Then, smooth or rake the product into your hair by sections. A common method is to begin with a leave-in cream or conditioner to decrease frizz and then follow with a gel for hold and definition. (Using your normal conditioner as a leave-in is fine too.) However, use whatever type and order of products you like. Next, finger shape the curls byscrunching them (cup your hair in the palms of your hands and scrunch in an upward motion) and/or twisting individual curls around a finger.
9- Gently scrunch your hair with a t-shirt, paper towels, or a micro-fiber towel to remove excess moisture. A generic terrycloth towel will make your hair frizzy. You may wish to finger shape your curls at this time instead. Next, wait five or so minutes so the hair can permanently assume its current shape.
10-Dry your hair. Air drying is the easiest and gentlest way to dry your hair. If you must blow dry your hair use a diffuser to avoid frizz. Only dry your hair partially (about 80 percent dry) and air-dry the rest of the way. Do not touch your hair while it is drying or it will mess up and frizz. Both types of diffusers work well in terms of diffusing and decreasing frizz
Of course! I’m glad I could help!
