Hair Care for long AF hair

like this? Share it!

I have really long hair.
 
Like really really long hair.
 
I look in the mirror sometimes and see the tips of my hair poking out just above my bum and think ‘is my hair really that long?’, then I grab some of it and from behind my arm and measure how long it is.
 
‘Cause I see myself every day, and that means I don’t see how long my hair actually is.
 
I got asked about Hair care on Instagram the other day so I wanted to share with you how I care for my hair.
 
 
__
 
First off, having thick hair is genetics, my mom had long thick wavy hair so I got it from her.
 
However that doesn’t mean you can’t take care of your hair.
 
Here’s what I do.
 
 

1️⃣ I use only natural shampoo and conditioner

 
Right now I am using DaVroe Hair Wellness (click to view on Amazon, I bought mine in Australia) both shampoo and conditioner.
 
Sometimes I only use shampoo and not conditioner as I find my hair is easier to comb without conditioner…. 🤷🏽‍♀️ don’t know why!
 
 

2️⃣ I don’t brush my hair in between washing it.

 
Ever since I dyed my hair blonde, my hair has become even harder to brush through (damaged the hair shafts, yes I knew it would happen, and yes I just wanted a change!)
 
I don’t brush my hair in between washing it because it means I loose my waves and curls.
 
Before washing my hair, I always brush it so it’s easier to comb afterwards.
 
I use a detangling spray and leave in conditioner after washing so I can brush it easier!
 
Yes brushing my hair is an affair, it takes over half an hour, and phew sometimes it annoys the F out of me.
 
 

3️⃣ I use a curling serum and a de-frizz serum to define more of my waves.

 
Right now it’s;
 
Make Curly Cream
 
⬆️ Yay! The frizz be gone is on Amazon! I couldn't find the Make Hair curly cream, it must be a Australia local product, sorry!
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4️⃣ I don’t blow dry my hair.

I don’t straighten my hair.
I don’t curl my hair.
 
It’s actually pretty simple. Keep it as natural as possible!
 
 
 
That doesn’t mean I don’t envy those Insta women who have glam locks all the time, I totally do, but I live in Bali. I drive a scooter, I wear a helmet. Hairstyles apart from up or down just don’t work here.
 
and yes, I do dream of living in a place where I am in a car which means I can actually do my hair up all pretty.
 
But then the question would be, would I actually do it?!

A week in Sydney

It was a pilgrimage of my own doing. It was all for me. I had to do it.   Every card I pulled, every person I asked and every sign was telling me this was what I was meant to do.   You see, I have a belief that I am not ‘safe’ when I travel alone. That traveling alone...
