REDUCE Your Split Ends for Good!

Hey beauties!!!
This is a post that I'm really excited to put up because I have finally found products that have reduced my split ends and have made my hair so strong and healthy! I have had a lot of viewers from my Youtube Channel ask me what i have used to get my hair super healthy, so i figured i would post it on here for you guys to see! Keep in mind i do color my hair so these products are perfect for color treated hair! So lets get started shall we?

First off is shampoo and conditioner. I don't necessarily think you have to buy high end shampoo and conditioners to get strong, healthy hair. At least from my experience. I love using the "Clear Hair & Scalp Therapy" Shampoo and conditioner for Damaged/Color Repair. I have been using this for so long now and i have not gone back to anything else! These 2 products make my hair shiny, silky, and super clean. I have no complaints about them! 

Now when it comes to actually washing my hair, i only do it about 2-3 times a week. This will also help get your hair back to its healthy state. Its not good to wash your hair everyday because you are constantly stripping your hair of all the natural oils. Give you hair a breather! I know its hard to only wash a few times a week. When i was blonde i thought i had to wash it EVERYDAY. I gradually started washing every other day & now i can go multiple days without washing it. You have to get your hair used to it, but once you do, you'll never go back to washing it everyday & your hair will thank you.

Now once a week i will use a deep conditioner. I believe that this is a MUST in your hair care routine. You need to baby your hair and replenish it. So the product i like to use is the "Macadamia Deep Repair Masque". It is literally heaven in a bottle. This product will make your hair so soft its unreal. I like to use this to replace my conditioner once a week and let it sit for about 10 minutes. You could also put it in your hair overnight and wash it out the next morning if your hair is really damaged. I love this deep conditioner because I do have an oily scalp and its hard to find products i can use at my roots. But with this product i can put it all over and it does not make my hair extra oily or weigh it down! Its expensive but totally worth it. I think this is my 2nd or 3rd bottle now? Im obsessed! You can get this at target and ulta.

Another tip i have for when you get out of the shower is to use a wide tooth comb. I cannot tell you how bad i cringe when i see girls use paddle or regular brushes when they are brushing out their wet hair! It is soooo damaging. Wide tooth combs are your best friend and you can get these anywhere! Walgreens, CVS, Salons, Sallys, Etc. Keep in mind you want to start from the ends of your hair and work your way up to the roots. This helps get rid of the knots but is not as damaging as using a regular brush.

For the products that i use before i blow dry- Im going to start out with the "Kenra Blow Dry Spray" (picture below: left)- This is a newer purchase but im already in love with it. This spray is a heat protectant and it also helps your hair dry faster while blow drying it and that is VERY important since blow drying is very damaging. This spray has a super fine mist and it smells amazing. You can get this product at Ulta.

Second i have the "Its A 10" Spray (middle)- I have been using this for about 3 months now and i am almost finished with it! This is also a heat protectant and it also does 9 other things!! (Hints the "10" in the name). Its great for summer and i highly recommend it if you are looking for a leave in conditioner type of spray. You can get this product Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, Etc.

Lastly i believe an oil is essential in your hair care routine. You can find oils for your hair anywhere as well. You can even use organic coconut oil from the grocery store. I have personally been using the "Nume Arganics Argan Oil" on my ends for awhile now and i highly recommend this product. I only apply about a dime sized amount to the ends of my hair. I dont want to put this at my roots because i already have a super oily scalp so that would just be a hot mess! 

Oh & YES i do use all 3 of these products before i blow dry and they do not weigh down my hair or make it super oily. Which is amazing since my hair can get greasy VERY fast. I find that when i combine these 3 products, my hair is heavenly! They leave my hair strong and split end free!

I also have a coupon code for the Nume Argan Oil if you are interested. Click Here And use "caseyargan" All lower case at your checkout. You can get this oil for $20.00 instead of $59.00

Earlier i was talking about going a few days without washing your hair. Well NONE of that would be possible for me if it wasnt for dry shampoo!! Dry shampoo can really help save your hair. My favorite brand is "Batiste" and you can get this at Ulta and i have also found some at TJ MAXX. The one i use is the "Hint of Color" so this is perfect for Brunettes! They have one for blondes as well. Just spray this product where your hair is looking oily, rub it in with your fingers, and brush out any excess with a brush. Then BAM- your hair looks refreshed! This product saves you SO much time when getting ready. Love love love.

The last thing i want to quickly mention is having a great quality blow dryer. This one i have had for about 8 months and it has not been anything but amazing! This is the "Nume Classic Ionic Dryer" and I love this. It dries my hair so quickly and if you watch my videos, you know my hair is SUPER long so  i love that it doesn't take me long to get it dry! My mom also has this dryer and she loves it! So two thumbs up for Nume!

Of course i always have coupons for you guys if you are interested in Nume products. The original price for this product is $225.00 but it is on sale for $195.00. CLICK HERE and use the coupon "valentine6" All lower case as usual, at your checkout and get this dryer for $95.00. Nume is always willing to get coupons for you guys and that is another reason why i love them! 

I also want to quickly mention that i do not use a brush when i blow dry my hair! I just toss my hair around- upside down- to the side- etc and then after its about 95% dry ill take a brush and brush my hair again from the ends to the roots to get rid of the tangles.

Also make sure that you keep getting your hair trimmed! This is kind of a "duh" thing to say but it is very important. I go about every 2 months to get a trim and it has actually made my hair grow faster! Get rid of that dead / crazy hair ladies! Its worth it- your hair will look much more polished and pretty :)

So I hope you guys enjoyed this LONG post but i figured i would be pretty detailed about it because I have been using these products and have been so impressed with them. Hopefully this will help some of you out and let me know in the comments what you like to use to keep your hair super healthy & split end free! Love you all xoxoxo
