Can I have healthy and beautiful hair?
As long as I can remember, I've only complained about my hair. Because too thin, because the ends are dry, because the ends are split, because they always flop, because they get tangled and the bane of the last months - they are electrifying. I plant them forever and, dissatisfied with the effect of "drowning" (that's what my Grandma used to say), i.e. long, tangled pods, I cut them off. The shorter the better.
And what did I really do for my hair? For the last year? Two? All my life
Eternal dyeing. Yes, for many years the metamorphosis was my middle name. Once blond, sometimes black, sometimes red. Dyed at home and at the hairdresser, too often and too violently. Straightened with a straightener or twisted with hot rollers, and even perms. Seriously!!!
Nutrition? Nooooo, after the conditioner it "flaps", they are so heavily burdened. So the conditioner only on holidays, and on a daily basis only shampoo, struggling with a comb, brush and dryer. The best one in the shape of a round brush to wind the hair, brew it and boil it. All this to reflect them so that they do not clap and it seems as if I have some more, even for a while. And all this varnish. Much.
Delighted with the beautiful hair that I have recently passionately admired on the Internet and Instagram, I decided to stop whining about mine and finally take care of it!
This is a perfect moment, because before pregnancy I completely stopped dying them, so I have a completely natural color and the hair is not damaged by paints.
I started nursing with education. Have you read the ingredients of a standard hair shampoo? One from a drugstore or even a pharmacy? Such for 5 and 35 zlotys? In 99% of cases, Sodium Laureth Sulfate is in the lead. Synthetic detergents, used in industry for a long time to ... wash and degrease floors and machines. Yummy! Thanks to them, the shampoo foams better. So what if the skin is irritated and dry afterwards? That they are harmful? That they disturb the entire hydrolipid balance? That they accumulate in the body reaching sky-high concentrations?
And conditioners consisting primarily of silicones, which instead of nourishing the hair just stick the hair, preventing the penetration of nutrients, camouflaging their imperfections?
Yes… you could find all these cosmetics on my shelf. Even those from pharmacies like KLORANE based on hinina or Dermena ... unfortunately everywhere SLS and harmful substances.
So I decided to learn more about hair care. Here Ania's blog came to my aid ANWEN How to care for your hair. I've been spending a lot of time on him over the past few weeks. Thanks to him, Oil stimulating hair growth has already appeared on my shelf with cosmetics - Khadi, made almost from herbs only. natural ingredients, and straight from Japan, hair flies to me Kaminomoto. On average, I oil my hair twice a week, each time I perform a head massage, for which I use a waterproof edition of my favorite brush Tangle Teezer (pictured above). Every day I use the standard version of the brush Tangle Teezerbecause nothing is so wonderful and delicately detangling my delicate, tangled hair. Such a massage stimulates circulation in the scalp, and most importantly, it is so pleasant! Wojtek likes her too and he steals from me sometimes! I don't know what this piece of plastic is so magical about, but we love it! So I gave it to Mum and Sister - it's my reliable way to get a proven little thing.
However, it was hardest for me to choose natural shampoo, without SLS, parabens, silicones or mineral oils. AND conditioner to complete. It is impossible to hide, these preparations are quite rare and quite expensive, and I was afraid that I would buy more bubbles, not suited to my type of hair, which will litter my bathroom and pluck my wallet. The more I read, the less I knew, and finding a natural shampoo for thin hair that is very static, so delicate that it is suitable for everyday use, and strong enough to wash the cosmetics for styling was a big difficulty for me. So I decided to go to the Hairdresser, in whose hands I gave myself some year ago, and who has a similar crazy about a healthy lifestyle as our whole family. And what? I couldn't find a better place. She matched my shampoo and mask to my hair, which perfectly matched my requirements: energizing shampoo INSIGHT DAILY USE and the mask to complete. We also discussed exactly how to wash my hair (if only once every day) and how to apply a mask (4 cm from the root, hold 5-10 minutes). The shampoo has a large capacity and a bottle with a dispenser and I think I will have at least half a year.
The hairdresser immediately rated KHADI oil as worth trying and thanks to this I have a complete care plan tailored to my hair.
I look forward to the effects of my new care, which of course I will share with you. Already the first use of a new shampoo and mask eliminated the static from the hair that I had struggled with for the past few months (no shop conditioners, neither those for rinsing, nor those without rinsing, mists, nothing!).
It seems to me that healthy and beautiful hair is largely a predisposition of each of us. There are people who can use any cosmetics for daily care, dye their hair and undergo many styling treatments, and they still have thick and strong hair. Unfortunately, I do not belong to such, but I think that in every situation it is worth fighting for nicer and healthier hair.
