Invest in your hair, it’s the crown you never take off.
Well hello, there! I know it’s been while, but I promise that I have a good excuse. I’ve been focused on me, myself and I; taking time to do the things I want to do and channeling my energy on the direction I want my life to go in. So far, so good!
Along this journey of self-development, I’m also paying extra attention to all the little things I do to treat myself. And today, we’re talking haircare. I’ve never been one to have a million different products when it comes to my hair. For me, it’s always been about having a few good tools of the best possible results. That includes the most talented and amazing hairstylist, a fab colourist and the right products for my hair type. Shu Uemura has always been at the top of my list for hair products. Not only do they smell heavenly, but they give my hair the much needed love it deserves.
Aside from making sure my colour stays beautiful, my biggest concern is keeping it hydrated. It’s so easy to damage your hair – from the sun to styling tools to your pillowcase (did you know that was a thing?). My weapon of choice is the Urban Moisture collection, perfect to give my hair the intense hydration and nourishment it needs. I also like that it helps to protect against environmental elements like dust, pollution and hard water. Since spring is finally upon us, I plan on spending lots of time outdoors.
What I love most about these products (again, aside from the amazing scent) are the ingredients. The shampoo, conditioner and hydro-nourishing treatment are formulated with mooring extract, to give your hair an intense dose of hydration and purify your strands, and red micro-algae extract, to heal your damaged strands, protect your hair from free radicals and oxidation, and stimulate cell regeneration.
There are a few things I like to do to avoid inflicting damage to my hair:
- Shampoo no more than 3 times a week. In between shampoos, dry shampoo is my best friend and so is a top knot.
- Avoid using styling tools when I can. I typically wash my hair at night and let it air dry. Sometimes I wake up with the absolute perfect I-woke-up-like-this hair, and on other days my curling iron never fails me.
- Use a hydrating treatment like the Shu Uemura Urban Moisture Hydro-nourishing treatment at least once a week. If I’m feeling like my hair needs a even more love, I’ll throw in an extra treatment and reach for the Shu Uemura Extreme Restorative Treatment. These two babies have got my back when it comes to making my hair super soft and healthy.
So far, 2017 has been the year of me. I’ve been so mindful to treating my body (inside and out) with love and doing what I can to best the best version of myself. It’s so easy to get lost in the hustle of life, so it’s important to find little moments throughout the day to give yourself a little treat. You deserve it!
