Looking for ways to keep your hair hydrated on the regular? Then you’re gonna want to keep reading because I’m sharing several tips below and telling you guys all about a new brand I’m using. It’s no secret that I love trying new products on the regular so I’m really excited to feature Hair Food’s Moisture Collection with Manuka Honey & Apricot today on Sensible Stylista. I’ve been using this shampoo + conditioner for the last few weeks, and I’m really loving the results.
I’ve been looking for something to enhance my mane’s shine, and this definitely gets the job done. And I love that this formula’s free of sulfate, parabens, mineral oils and dyes. I’m big on moisturization so I went with the Manuka Honey & Apricot duo, but they also carry purifying, nourishing and smooth collections. To be honest, I’m probably going to try them all at some point, but I’m curious to hear which line you prefer – definitely let me know by leaving a comment below.
Now, let’s talk about one of my favorite topics every: hydration! It’s crucial for both hair AND skin so you’ll definitely need to read until the end. To start, condition your mane every day, even if you’re not shampooing. Remember to focus on the ends though because your scalp can get oily, and you don’t want to weigh your roots down.
When I shower, I leave my conditioner in while I wash my body so it gets fully absorbed, and I use an intensive hair mask at least once a week to keep my strands healthy and beautiful. I have long hair so I use a leave-in conditioner/detangler afterwards as well. And if you can brave the cold, I highly recommend rinsing with cold water post wash – it’ll seal your hair cuticles and lock moisture in, which will in turn give your mane extra shine.
Note: over-shampooing is a big no-no because it strips your hair of sebum aka healthy oils. Try washing your hair every other day and incorporate dry shampoo into your routine. Also, switching to a sulfate-free shampoo is an absolute must. You may think you’re getting a good clean due to the lather, but in reality it’s drying you out. On that note, I was actually really impressed with Hair Food because I got a great lather out of it even though it free of sulfates. Plus it smells like heaven so there’s that, ha!
And last but not least, air dry your hair as much often as possible. If you’re in a rush and you NEED to style it, use cold settings with a touch of hair oil – I like argan the best – to keep frizz under control.
Also, just in case you were curious, here’s a shot of the actual shampoo and conditioner. What do you guys do to combat dryness? Let me know if you have any tricks up your sleeve!
