I’ve had a few readers and friends asking me how I take care of my hair, how I make it sleek and what products I use.
So, I guess it’s about time to make a post about it.
I am not really maarte with my hair. I’m not one who goes to the parlor every week end for hot oil treatments, or any kind of treatment they offer in the salon. I am not like that.
After I shampoo my hair I put moroccan oil/argan oil at the tips of my hair. The product I use is this:
Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco
I use just one pump of this at the tips of my hair and if there’s still extra on my hand I put it all over my hair.
You can get this in S&R but you can also use any argan oil.
After applying this oil, I spray heat protector all over my hair right away. And the heat protector that I use is this:
TRESemmè Keratin Smooth
After applying these 2 products I dry my hair using an electric fan. As much as possible I don’t use blow dryer to dry my hair ‘cos I don’t want to use 2 heat gadgets on my hair since I use hair iron.
After I dry my hair, Rhea (our labandera) irons my hair while I am putting my make up. When she’s done I apply again moroccan oil but this time just half a pump on top of my hair to smoothen it.
But the greatest secret on having good hair days is: do not shampoo your hair everyday. Second and third day hair is the best. I know it is yucky cos we live in a tropical country and we sweat a lot. BUT, there are products for that.
Dry shampoo soaks the oil of your hair, so no greasy hair. Dry shampoos smells good, so your hair smells clean and fresh.
For those of you who haven’t tried this trick yet, just try it. And please let me know what you think. I am 100% sure you will thank me.
There’s a lot of dry shampoo in the market now. But these following brands are my faves that are available here (except Batiste):
Batiste Dry Shampoo
The nearest you can get this brand is in Hongkong and Singapore. But this is all over the U.S
This come in different scents.
Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo
Good news this is available here in Manila. I saw this in Rustan’s, Watsons and S&R
Marc Anthony Clear Dry Shampoo
This is available in S&R
But the best dry shampoo I have ever tried is the brand Klorane. I discovered this when I was in Paris and I forgot to bring dry shampoo. So, I was forced to buy there and this was recommended to me by the the sales girl in one of the pharmacies that I went to.
You can order this in Amazon and I heard it is available in Sephora Singapore. I am not sure tho’.
Klorane Dry Shampoo
So, there. That’s my sleek hair routine.
