People always ask me how to get a healthy, shiny and smooth hair like mine. Today i am going to share the secrets of my hair care routine. We all want to have great hair; but unfortunately, shiny, healthy hair doesn't just happen without a little bit of effort.
The only thing you need to do is put in the short amount of time necessary to follow this simple daily hair care routine. This is how my natural hair looks like without any blow drying, straightening or curling. Try to avoid heat as much as u can, but if u can't avoid it, don't forget to protect your locks whenever u want to heat-style it.
LET'S GET STARTED!!
These are my secrets to healthy, shiny, manageable and split end-free hair...
Lets have a look at the SECRET TREASURES inside my magical treasure chest box ....
~ AdiiiiDUIIIdumbellaaaaaaa~ *chanting*
And the chest OPENS.... TADAAAA!!!!
P/S : For your information, I do not actually keep them inside this box. Just want to express how much these products mean to me, just like a buried treasure...they do MAGIC....hihihi
Shampoo thoroughly, daily or every other day depending on hair's oiliness. As for me, i shampoo every other day or whenever my hair feels gross, especially on rainy days...
Use adequate amount of product depending on your hair length. Because my hair is pretty long, i usually use about the size of a 50 cent coin ( Malaysian coin) .. or maybe more if my hair is extra greasy!
But remember to shampoo in small, circular movements; don't forget to target dirt collecting areas such as the nape of your neck. Massage your scalp to improve blood circulation to your roots.
This is essential, u guys! Rinse your hair thoroughly until the water becomes clear and the shampoo has been completely washed away. Any residue left on your scalp will cause DANDRUFF! Ewwww GROSS!
This is the shampoo that i use most of the time..
~ Clairol Herbal Essences Shampoo...I just love their great scents! I know i am going to have a really long term relationship with this one~
I might change my shampoo, conditioner or leave-in spray conditioner whenever i feel like my hair needs that little extra UMMPH!...
(sorry i can't remember their prices)..
IMPORTANT FACT : I spray the leave-in spray conditioner more towards the ends of my hair because my hair tends to become limp and get greasy much sooner if i sprayed it too near to the roots...
~ Loving the smell~
2) Hair Recovery Treatment
I swear by this product. Can't imagine life without it.. Maybe i will continuously spin and faint and spin and faint over and over again just like this :
I use this product EVERY TIME after washing my hair without a miss. It makes my hair feels so smooth and silky, but the best part is, my hair is now free from tangles and frizz!!!! Bye2 frizzy, crazy, unruly hair!!!
This product is really AWESOME!!! I put a generous amount of it on the lower part of my hair, focusing more on the ends. It really helps to prevent split ends.
3) Hair Mask

Do i need to say more??
I use this product twice a month since i don't have the time to visit my dearest hairdresser, Ricky, for this kind of thing.
And why on earth do u want to spend more when u have all the access to these great products or when u can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home??? I just don't understand how some people can actually spend RM 2000 at some high-end saloons for their hair (bukan cantik sangat pon)! It sounds so ridiculous to me..
4) How to prevent split ends?
I use hair serum on wet or dry hair to prevent split ends. Serum can also help to tame your frizz.
Sorry to tell u this, but if you do have split ends, you have to know that they cannot be fixed or mended; they can only be cut off. Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to remove damaged ends.
And as for me, I only trim my hair every 4-6 months. I've been practising the hair care routine religiously and i do not need to trim that often. THANKS to these three!!
