It is safe to say Fall is finally here!! I don’t know about you but I am totally happy dancing over here! The changing of the seasons always brings about changes in other things as well. Things like skin care routine and wardrobe selections. One thing that I have never really paid much attention to until now is my hair care!!
My hair has always been one of my better features. And that was mainly because it has always been so low maintenance. Give me some grocery store shampoo and conditioner + some hair spray and I was good to go! If you are reading this and you’re a mom, then you can probably relate to my next revelation. Postpartum hair is NOT the same! The texture of my hair has changes, I have cow licks in random places (but WHY??!), it’s thinner in areas and doesn’t grow as quickly as it once did. Put all those fun things together with the change in the weather and we have a perfect storm for some hair-tastrophes!
I decided for all you mamas or ladies who maybe experience hair changes due to disorders such as hypothyroidism and others that affect the hair, I would put together a round up of some precautions to take to make sure your hair is the best version of itself!
START WITH THE SCALP
When you think hair, you have to also think scalp! This is something I have neglected to think about or take care of in the past. If you nurture you scalp, your scalp can nurture you hair! Rejuvenique is my favorite product to provide my scalp with the nutrients it needs. This product is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omega fatty acids. And here is the magic of this particular product, it can be used for a pre-shampoo treatment that you apply at night and wash in the am. You can use a few drops as an intensive hydrating treatment. Apply to dry hair to control frizz. And here is probably the most exciting part- it can also be used as a facial moisturizer that helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines by providing hydration and improving texture and tone! Yep.. this is probably my favorite product ever!
SPEND THE TIME AND MONEY ON YOUR SHAMPOO- YOUR HAIR IS WORTH IT
I’m with you sister. I used to just grab whatever was convenient as I was running through the grocery store. Over the years (and with each kid) things have just gotten a little bit more complicated. Can I get a witness on that one?! These days, I am learning just because we pay less for a product, doesn’t mean it actually ends up being less in the long run. AND our hair (or skin if we are talking skin care) suffers. With the dryer air here, it’s time to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. That means you skin and your HAIR! Monat has a great hydrating shampoo system that will restore your hair back to it’s beautiful shine and bounce! This Advanced Hydrating Shampoo will be your best friend this season + the Advanced Hydrating Conditioner and you have a duo that will get your hair back on track! You may also like the Restore Leave-In Conditioner. This will provide extra nutrients to the scalp and does just as the name suggests- restores!
PICK A MASK- A HAIR MASK
Okay, so I know facial masks and even feet and hand masks are the thing these days. And I’m here to confirm, you need a good mask- or five! You also need a good hair mask! Monat offers several different options. But since we are gearing up to take on the cold weather and need all the moisture we can get, let’s chat about the Heavenly Hydration Masque! If you’ve never done a hair mask before, I’ll give you the run down real quick. You will apply this light weight cream to clean, towel dried hair. Leave it on for 5- 10 minutes and then wash out! Using one of Monat’s hair Masques once or twice a week will get your hair jam back! Bring on the hair flips! This is a perfect product to add to your self-care Sunday or if you’re like me, the random afternoon home spa hour you may pick up here and there!
There you have it ladies. Taking the time to invest in your hair is important. It’s part of your body and deserves to be taken care of too! And here’s a scary thought- toxins can be absorbed right from your scalp! Make sure you’re using products that are safe. I’m going to link a few of my other favorite products below for easy shopping and if you would like a FREE hair consult, drop you email below and let’s chat!
