Hair oil

Before anything the picture is a “bit” unfocused. I don’t know about you but I often don’t find the haircare I want. I love essential oils in haircare cause they can make any hair type better. I never find any hair care with the essential oils I want. When I find products with oils it doesn’t feel good. For example I used nettle haircare but that made my hair into a big tangle.

A while ago I began mixing hair products with essential oils myself. I couldn’t have made a better choice. There are oils for everything. I have oily hair and tea tree oil normalizes that. I use it in the shampoo but not conditioner. It’s oil and it can make the hair greasy if you use it in everything. I find lemon oil the best in skincare.

I don’t mix oil with shampoo in the shampoo bottle. Then you don’t know how much oil to put in. I mix shampoo and oil in a coffee cup instead. I do it with every use. I don’t use that much oil. It can harm your hair if you put lots of oil on it.

I buy essential oils from Organic makers.

Caring

I think hair is big business. When you don`t feel fine about your hair you`re miserable. It doesn`t mean you think about your hair all the time but if it`s not what you like it`s hard.

I`ve cut my hair myself for a long time. I do it because it`s expensive to go to a hairdresser. I only trim my ends and to pay 100 dollars to do that is a lot. I do it too because of the way hairdressers treat my hair. They always want cut layers in my hair. That can be wonderful if your hair looks good in it. My hair looks like I`ve got two different hairstyles with layers. Hair dressers say “I cut layers in your hair” but they could say “you get two hairstyles in one cut”. My hair is more than straight and that`s why layers looks like that, layers.

The thing I don`t want in a hair salon is a blow out. It feels like they pull out every hair. I say that I don`t want that round brush tearing apart my hair in the blow dryer but they can`t help them selves. They say they will dry a little but then they get their brush and dryer and make my scalp burn. I get many demand a blow out however I can`t stand it.

I use oil on my hair because I have tangles. When I don`t put oil on I can`t brush my hair because of the tangles. My favorite hair products come from Marc Anthony. This oil Repairing Macadamia Oil Treatment makes my hair soft and without tangles. It lasts a long time.

Soothing

I sometimes find perfect beauty products. I have tried many bad ones but when I find something that does what it should I`m happy! I`m especially happy when I find good hair care products. When it comes to hair it`s worth spending money on the products you use. I can`t use the things you buy in a grocery store on my hair. I know there`s nothing wrong with them but my scalp itches when I use them. Also my hair doesn`t feel clean after a hair wash with grocery store products. That`s just me if it works for you keep on using them!

For me it`s worth spending money on the more expensive hair care products out there. Hair salon`s have the best schampoo`s you can find. Some schampoo`s are too expensive but there are many good ones that don`t cost too much. The difference between hair salon products and the grocery store ones is that the hair salon has more “clean” products. Most of them don`t contain a lot of crazy things.

My scalp is sensitive. It itches if I don`t take care of it. These products are probably the best I`ve ever used. It`s Joico, Purifying scalp cleanse and Balancing scalp nourish. These products remove build ups and calm the scalp. They keep my scalp healthy. They are best used together.

I give Joico a rating of 4/5. It would get 5 if there were more in the bottles. Especially the conditioner. You have to apply the conditioner in all your hair (the roots too) and you finish the bottle in no time. Other than that it makes your hair feel wonderful. Clean and fresh.

 

 

 

Tangles

I often get tangles in my hair. Even if I use “heavy” schampoo`s and conditioners and so on they keep showing up. When I have long hair my whole hair is often one big tangle. I like having long hair but it`s almost impossible. Because of that I`ve used different hair oils to make it better.

I write hair oils and many of you probably think “oil makes my hair greasy”. My hair gets greasy as well if I use “pure” oil like olive oil. I remember when I mixed olive oil and essential oils and put it on my hair. It looked like I had never washed my hair! It only weighed my hair down and my hair looked dirty. Pure oil is excellent for deep conditioning where you leave it on your hair for a while and then wash it off. When you only want to get soft hair you should use oils especially made for your hair.

This hair oil is probably the best one I`ve used.

20170125_180706This is Marc Anthonys, “Coconut and shea butter oil”. It`s a lightweight oil that makes your hair soft without any greasy feeling. It smells discrete but nice and it melts in with your hair. It makes at my hair almost tangle free. I find that it`s best to put it on when my hair is wet.

You can buy this everywhere.

Calming

20161123_174948I`ve had an itchy scalp for a long time. I have tried many things that were supposed to calm the scalp but nothing has worked. Instead they often make it itch more. I have used different shampoo`s that would help with dandruff and built ups but they also made it itch more. Dandruff shampoo`s are often very harsh to your hair and if you don`t really have dandruff they can damage it.

This product works for me. It`s climbazole 4. It`s a leave-in scalp tonic. You can use it as a pre-shampoo treatment but I think it`s better to apply it after the hair has been washed. Then it has more time to do it`s job until the next hair wash. I apply it to my scalp by first putting it in my hands and then I rub it on. I did put it on straight from the bottle the first time I used it but I found that I got too much of the tonic on the scalp. By doing it with the hands I get the right amount.

It smells like tee tree oil. I like that. When you have applied the tonic the smell gradually fades away though. The best thing about it is that your hair won`t look greasy at all. The texture of the tonic is very light and it “melts” into your hair. I have used it for a while now and my hair feels better than it has in a long time. Great stuff.
