I used to contend with dry, lifeless hair on a regular basis, but now I have found a hair care system that really works for me. I use a daily moisture renewal shampoo as part of my hair care routine. My hair is thick and wavy, and it is difficult to completely prevent split ends, especially when I have to wash daily. While I have tried many different products, I find that using a moisture renewal shampoo is the best way to keep my hair looking great and feeling healthy.
My hair care routine looks something like this; first, I get in the shower and rinse my hair well. I do this to remove any sweat or debris and I find that the initial rinse is especially important after I have been out running or participating in a yoga class. After I rinse my hair, I wash with a daily moisture renewal shampoo, Pantene is my preferred brand. I make sure to scrub my scalp well, and then I rinse the shampoo well with warm water. After washing once, I repeat this process to make sure my hair is really clean. While the shampoo I use does not require that I use a conditioner, I find that deep conditioning my hair for about five minutes twice a week really helps to keep it healthy. I have a favorite Pantene conditioner, and I apply it and leave it in while I finish my shower or shave my legs.
In addition to using my daily moisture renewal shampoo, I also make sure to keep up with any split ends that I do get by visiting my hairdresser for a cut about once every six weeks. She trims off any split ends and sometimes gives me a deep conditioning mud mask to make my hair extra healthy and shiny.
I have found that this system of washing with my favorite Pantene daily moisturizing shampoo really gives my hair body and shine, and it prevents me from having to use too many other products on my hair when I am styling it. I can usually use just a small amount of mousse right before I blow dry my hair, and that is enough to make it shiny, bouncy and capable of holding the style of my choice, whether that be a wavy, carefree look or a slick and sleek straight look.
If you are having trouble with split ends or overly dry hair and feel like there is no solution at hand, give a high quality moisture renewing shampoo a try. In my opinion, it takes about four weeks to see real results with the method I described above, but results will come if you are persistent, patient and diligent. The end result will be beautiful hair that has a lot of life and feels healthy. This will help you to feel vibrant and alive, and really boost your self confidence every time you style your hair.
