Hair Care Routine

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

So here is the thing about my hair- " You either love it, or hate it, there is no in-betweens"

Hair Type: Thick-black, colored, coconut husk like <I have inserted an image for your reference>, extremely frizzy and dry towards the ends

Scalp: Dry, Itchy and Flaky
Problems: Dandruff, ie, flakes, dry hair

I have always struggled with my hair, I wanted my hair short all through my school life. I struggled to get a good hair dresser whole through my college, and now I am trying to grow-out my hair. I go through these phases where I try and re-try products, techniques or basically a routine that works for my hair type. After much research, I am in a routine that satisfy 70% of my criteria. My eternal search for frizz-free smooth hair continues.

Wash Cycle: Once every two days
Products Used: Loreal Mythic Oil Shampoo, and Masque, John Frieda Frizz-Ease shampoo and Conditioner, Garnier Frutis Triple Nutrition conditioner, Biotique oil

Wash Routine

  1. I oil my scalp using Biotique oil (for Dry, Damaged, and Color treated hair) and follow up the oiling routine for the ends using a thicker oil (Olive oil).
  2. I use my shower cap and let the goodness stay on my scalp for 3-4 hours.
  3. I use Loreal Mythic Oil shampoo (1 pump) and slightly massage the scalp. Add a little water, let it later and use the lather to clean the ends.
  4. I follow it up with the Garnier Frutis Triple Nutrition conditioner, I concentrate only on the ends, taking my time to coat all the strands.
  5. I wash off the conditioner, and move on to the Loreal Mythic Oil Masque. I apply it on my hair ends , and let it stay for 10 minutes, before washing off.

I switch my routine with John Frieda Frizz-Ease shampoo and conditioner quite often, but I use the same technique.

Post-wash routine

I use my Loreal Mythic Oil serum and separate the stands.

Other Products, I use

  • Label.m Dry shampoo: For days-in between the washes, when my scalp is feeling oily.
  • Tresemme Hair Spray: For extra hold.

Tools, I use

Philips Kerashine hair dryer: When I need my hair to dry faster. On regular days, I let my hair air-dry.


  • I try to use milder shampoos, for my itchy scalp.
  • If the wash cycle prolongs beyond two days, the flakes go out of control, so try to wash your hair atleast every two days.
  • I do not use any heat on my hair.
  • I wash my hair a day prior if I need to attend any function as the hair on the day of wash is mostly unruly. Day 2 hair works well for me.
  • I do not use separate products for my colored hair. I usually get color done to the ends, so as when it fades, I can chop off the the ends. Currently I have brown color done towards my ends.
