As the season’s change my hair suffers from the cold harsh winter as well as the hot dry summer so it’s time to rejuvenate it and get it back to a healthy shiny state for spring. The truth is that no one’s hair is really the same when it comes to health, textures, thicknesses, lengths and colors, so I can only speak for myself and what has worked best for my hair. I have naturally wavy, super thick hair that has a softer texture but does tend to suffer from breakage and unwanted damage. One thing I’ve learned over the years is it doesn’t matter if you have beautiful curls or simple straight strands everyone always craves something different but ultimately something beautifully healthy. I try to embraced what I was born with and I try to keep my hair as natural as possible to keep it healthy and shiny.
Recently I was introduced to the Paul Mitchell Awaphui Wild Ginger Keratin treatment shampoo and conditioner. I’ve been washing and conditioning my hair every other day with the Wild Ginger Keratin system. Not only does the treatment and shampoo, conditioner smell fantastic, within a few weeks I could really see a difference in the health of my hair and the breakage disappearing from the winter months.
I try my best to keep as much heat off of my hair as possible. Instead of blow drying it, I opt to let it air dry and I rarely use a straightener these days. I will however use a curling iron at least a couple times a week to try and get loose voluminous curls that build on my naturally wave strands. I recently got this GHD Soft Curl Iron and it is hands down the nicest curling iron I’ve ever used. I’ve tend to use a 1 1/4 inch barrel to keep my waves soft, relaxed and loose.
Now that I’ve been using the system and my hair is back to a health state I’m going to continue to use the system and incorporate it back into my regular routine. I’ll use the treatment once a week and add in the shampoo and cream rinse once a week as well to help build up the strength of my hair while still maintaining my normal hair routine.
