Let’s talk Hair Breakage!

If you’re like me, then you are obsessed with haircare and keeping your hair in healthy condition.

I have been working on strengthening my hair and bringing it back from the dead and damaged side for years now. You can check out my haircare routine HERE.

For the longest time I would bleach and damage my hair and it started to really show in my late twenties when it started looking fried and felt like straw. I was so self-conscious about it, so I knew I needed a change in my hair routine.

For the last 5 years, I have been focusing on healthy hair growth and changing up my routine and hairstyles to help promote long healthy hair.

Since changing the way I style my hair in certain situations, I have noticed a huge reduction in spilt ends.

Believe it or not, the way to style your hair for certain activities is VERY important!ย 

By styling your hair the “right way” for a certain activity, you can significantly decrease the amount of damage and breakage you cause to your hair.

So let’s get into all the helpful tips on how you should be styling your hair for activities.

YouTube Tuesday: My Haircare Routine

Hey guys! So I know this isn’t Tuesday (don’t worry you’re not going crazy lol). I meant to post this yesterday but my husband and I were driving back from our little road trip to South Florida, which took 12.5 hours!! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ That’s a long time to sit in the car. Talk about boring! But we will hopefully have some exciting news to share with you soon!! So needless to say, I know this post is a day late, but I figured better late than never.

This weeks YouTube Tuesday video is all about haircare. I’ve been getting a lot of questions asking about my haircare routine and what I do for hair growth and to maintain my long hair, so I thought I’d create a video for you guys to see all the details and products I use.

My haircare routine is actually quite simple and straightforward, so this is a nice short video that can sum it all up in a couple of minutes. I try not to use too many products on my hair because I find that it weights it down and does more damage than good. My hair motto is, less is more. I find the less products and things I use in my hair the faster my hair grows and the healthier it looks. I will definitely say my hair naturally grows pretty fast, but I have noticed that it grows much faster now that I started doing this hair routine consistently. I also, have been getting less breakage and split ends which is rare for a blonde with highlights lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

So if you’re just curious as to what my haircare routine is, or if you are looking for new ways to enhance your hair health and growth, then make sure to check out the video below! โฌ‡๏ธ

Easy Loose Curls in Under 10 Minutes – Hair Tutorial

Hair tutorial time!

Hey guys so this is officially my very first hair tutorial. I’m so excited to start this venture and start showing you guys how I create all my braided hairstyles. I decided to start with my everyday look so you guys could see how I get my curls that are in most my pictures. I came up with this easy 10 min style after I got fed up with curling my hair last year. It used to take me an hour from blow-dry to finished curls to do my hair, which is crazy! So, I knew there had to be a better, faster way to get those beautiful loose curls. So, without further ado, here is my first hair tutorial (featuring Samuel L. Catson lol)
