Healthy Hair

On Saturday, I went to get my hair cut at glynn jones salon in Alexandria, VA. It’s in my neighborhood and was a great salon and experience. I had a junior stylist, Ella, cut my very long and very wavy hair. The first thing she said to me once I got in the chair was how healthy she thought my hair was. I credit this to a couple of choice products I’ve been using pretty religiously lately.

Lush Seanik Solid Shampoo: a round, very blue, solid bar that infuses hair with softness. Ingredients include: Irish moss seaweed,  Japanese nori seaweed, lemon oil, and sea salt, making hair shiny and soft and adding extra volume in the process. I lather it up in my hands then massage into the roots of my hair out to the tips and rinse away.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner: a lovely-smelling, extra potent conditioner that heals hair with “Nutri-oils”. After shampooing with Seanik, I put a dime-sized amount in my hair, working from tips to roots. (Since I have very long, thick hair, I would suggest using smaller amounts if you have shorter hair. You really don’t need much of this!) Rinse away for extra shine. I use both Seanik and the Dove conditioner every day or every time I wash my hair.

Maroccanoil Intense Hydration Mask: a very thick, intensive mask. I put a fairly large amount in my palm and work again from the tips back to the roots, leave it in for about 7 minutes and rinse away. I only do this every other week or when I need extra care. The product is fairly expensive (I think I paid around $35 for the jar at blue mercury), but I definitely think it’s worth it.

Since I haven’t had a haircut in months and haven’t used much else on my hair, I really must give it up to these three products for keeping my hair in such good shape. I’ll definitely be repurchasing all of them when I am out.
