Hair {on the} Brain / New Hair Regimen

As you might have guessed, this blog is all about....hurr!
Before this year, I had all but given up on my hair. I didn't see my hair ever growing beyond a certain length and I chalked it down to genetics. At least up until my sister (who used to commiserate with me over our shared hair woes) cut her hair a year ago and it grew back longer than mine, which rules out genetics.

All My Natural Frizzy Hair (No Make-Up...yayy for self esteem...not quite, but still) Glory :-)

So it all came down to hair - care. I realized I haven't really been putting much time or money or effort. This all changed when I saw this blog by Megan. She had absolutely gorgeous hair and she totally inspired me to put a little more effort in.

This is my new treatment/conditioning system, I add some natural oils to the Miadi treatments above and use do a 15 minute treat before deep conditioning for an hour.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ORS Replenishing Conditioner, it's the one thing that didn't make this whole hair process flop. The moisturizing lotion was all water and no oil/moisturizing properties at all. Same goes for the Motions Nourishing leave in conditioner This was hard to spray on and again it was water, I'd rather get a creamier leave in conditioner that makes you feel like you've actually used some product on your hair. (Update: The Motions Nourish Leave-in is actually GREAT as a detangler, it worked wonders, my hair which usually breaks quite a lot as I de-tangle, barely broke)

I tried to do the whole avoid heat and air-dry instead...with these products it was a little difficult {read frizzy} but I'm not stressing out about it too much because it was my 1st time. What I will change next time is probably to stay off of shampoo for a while and "conditioner-wash" because my hair is really dry.

Anyway, I'll keep you guys posted.
