I know I’ve been gone for quite some time, but I was busy with a few festivities. My brother got engaged and he invited loads of people for a weekend getaway. So, because of that I was travelling from Gurgaon to Delhi to UttarPradesh to Uttarakhand and we travelled across 3 different states in less than 6 hours.
That being said, I was sure to have a bad hair day but because of the recent hair care routine I’ve been following, My hair were soft and bouncy.
Despite my busy schedule which includes writing, studying and having a normal life, I still manage to take some time out for my hair. A few years ago, I was told that I might get PCOD which sort of gave me a shock and I was so scared that something bad would happen to me.
I’ve had a series of diseases in my childhood. I got diarrhea when I was over 2 months old. I got Asthma when I was 9 and I got juvenile Arthritis when I was 13. So, all of this took a toll on my health and it also gave me a lifetime phobia of medicines, injections and hospitals.
After several years, I got back on track and started eating healthier. When I was 14, I wanted to get red highlights. So, I went to the nearest store and got a “Burgundy” hair dye that was supposed to last for 2-3 months. I didn’t know the difference between burgundy and red plus the images displayed on the carton were definitely very different from the outcome. So when I washed them off, I was expecting a big reveal but all that showed up was a purplish tint. My hair were a weird color for a long time and the tint lasted for about 5-6 months contrary to what the product claimed. Ugh, it still makes me cringe.
*After I used Bleach*
Next, I experimented with bleach. I dyed some of my hair with that and they turned out pretty well. Soon. I was addicted. I bleached every 3 months and my hair were a mess. I had to get them chopped off because they were severely damaged.
Fast forward to 2017, I decided to use better dyes that are ammonia free and have a good creamy formulation. I use Streax Ultra Highlights in Style 1 and the results that I got were mind blowing. I’ve been addicted to this particular brand for almost a year now. I haven’t colored my hair in almost a year and the color you see in pictures is still very prominent and intact.
*Before I redid my highlights*
I use warm water (not hot) to wash my hair and finish with cold water in the end to seal in all that goodness. I oil them occasionally on weekends too.
The shampoo I use on a daily basis is Dove Intense repair, but I switch it with Oxygen Moisture once in a while. Different hair have different needs and I really don’t find any other one as effective. This is just my opinion though.
The conditioner I use is the Trésemme hair fall defense. I stopped using any kind of heating appliances (straighteners, curlers, blow-dryers etc.) on my hair a long time ago. I air-dry my hair and apply some oil on my tips immediately after they’re air-dried.
Next, I use Streax Pro Hair Serum or Garnier Ultra Blends Oil in cream 5 Precious Herbs, both of these are amazing and give my hair the bounce and the silky, smooth texture. These products are my GO-TO products and I swear by them.
And you can see the results for yourself.
My hair still need a lot of protein in the form of eggs, fish etc. And I’ll update this post once I see a visual difference. If you liked reading this post, please give this post a thumbs up. Comment below and follow the blog if you haven’t already!
