Some time ago, actually more than 1,5 year ago! I wrote in the post Rescue my hair in a natural way how you could restore your hair by starting using some natural methods instead of standard chemical approach that definitely won’t help your hair.
My hair didn’t have any shine, was mat and looking damaged. I did previously an ombre hair (dying half head on blond) which probably didn’t help it neither.
So I started to use coconut oil before washing, sometimes castor oil – but I found it to be very heavy on my hair and hard to wash off.
For few good months I was washing my hair with a gentle soap only or with baby shampoo. Currently I’ve been using Radical series (shampoo + conditioners for damaged, weak hair – I love these products!). I even stopped blowing it dry with hair dryer many times, leaving it to get dry alone. This was a very big sacrifice for me as my hair doesn’t look nice without a good blow dry.
And first of course I stopped dying it! This definitely changed its condition.
On the photo above my hair ‘AFTER’ wasn’t blow dry, it was left to get dry withiut doing anything but still has shine and smooth texture. I’ve been blowing it dry now quite often (I just need to make it look nice 🙂 ) and I did few highlights but I’ve still been using natural cosmetics and treating it much better.
My hair is smoother, has more shine and looks healthier. Hair dryer of course doesn’t help but I can’t quick everything 😉
