Keeping hair healthy - September 9th 2013, 07:49 PM

Hey guys!

So I just lobbed off half my hair today. (Well my mom did, haha). Donating the 12 inches I had cut off to locks of love.

But anyway, since I'm starting at a point with no split ends and minimal damage to my hair, I was looking for suggestions to help keep it healthy. I know getting it trimmed regularly, being wary of shampoo ingredients, staying away from more heated styling tools as often as possible, ect.

My main thing is I hear people talk about clarifying shampoos and doing a deep conditioning every so often. Any products you guys can reccomend for these? Or anything else you can think of?

I recommend Garnier Fructis's triple nutrition deep conditioner.

Try a pure Argan Oil. Keeps your hair healthy and gives it a nice shine and silky feel. You apply it while your hair is wet after a shower. The stuff I use is called Babyliss Pro Argan Oil.

I've heard people mention Argan Oils before, but I'm a bit wary about trying it because my hair gets kinda ick easily (at least I feel it does..then again I'm really OCD about it lol). Any problems like that with this in your experience?

That's great you're trying to keep your hair healthy. I would recommend washing it frequently and using any types of hair products, like hair gels and stuff less often. Another thing you could try doing to prevent any sort of split-ends is not using hair straighteners or curlers a lot. The heat often times damages hair, which causes split-ends.

i use coconut oil. you can get a big jar for $5-10 and it lasts forever. even i can use it for several months before i need a new jar, and my hair is hip length.
just put it in your hair over night (i wrap mine up in a towel) an wash it out in the morning. it works great and its much cheaper than argan oil.
also, don't wash your hair every day. i wash mine about every 3 days. it causes your hair to produce more oil if you wash it every day.

I've got no recommendations because I'm looking for advice on that myself, other than the argan oil - I agree, pure argan oil makes my hair oily (I've got thiiick hair) but recently, we bought Organix Argan Oil Conditioner. It was cheap, $5 bucks at Fry's. I have to condition after I shampoo otherwise my hair looks like straw, but what I do is shampoo, towel dry until it's sort of damp, and then work a little bit of the argan oil conditioner into it. It doesn't make your hair feel ick, and I'm sure it'll keep it healthy too

I've tried coconut oil before and it does work well Just try not to put too much in your hair because it can be a bitch to wash out.
