Ooooh fun topic! Hair background: I'm not sure if I have thick hair, or just a lot of it, but the volume is not lacking! It's got a mind of its own as far as texture - sometimes more wavy, sometimes more straight, sometimes even straight up curly. Length - mid-back to low-back, depending on whether I needed a big chunk of dead ends chopped off. Dyed religiously because prematurely gray is not my style. :'( Because of this dying, my hair is crazy dry. And I live in a really humid climate.


  • Olaplex No. 3 - I use this pre-shampoo/condition about twice a month. Truly a hair saver. If I could only own a single hair product, it would be this! Makes my "hay" hair soft again, and tones down the tangles.
  • Oribe Royal Blowout - this is a heat styling spray that I use if I'm going to blow dry or use heat styling. Smells amazeballs!
  • Oribe Anti-Humidity spray - To be honest, I don't know how much this helps, but it makes me feel better about walking out into 90% humidity after I just finished styling my hair. Also, smells amazeballs. :)
  • Deva Curl Low Poo - One of the shampoos I alternate between. I don't use it for the curls/waves so much as I do for the gentle formula and softness it brings out in my hair. Does NOT smell amazeballs, haha.
  • ION Purify shampoo - This is the other shampoo I alternate between. We have extremely hard water (I've also gotten a shower head filter, but still hard) and the build up needs washed out. Supposed to be good for after swimming in chlorine too. My hair feels weird after rinsing it out, like it's dying for the conditioner, but feels SUPER soft after conditioning and drying.
  • Deva Curl Conditioner - One of the many conditioners I alternate between. This is one that I usually use after the Deva Curl shampoo. Smells weird, but softer hair, so I tolerate it.
  • Argan Conditioning Mask - Another conditioner I alternate with. I use the heavy duty conditioners/masks once a week because of the dry texture of my hair. This one is a holy grail hair mask! Smells soooooo good and hair is like silk...or as close as it can get after dying every 6-8 weeks for over 7 years!
  • It's a 10 Hair Mask - I definitely like this hair mask, just not as much as the Argan one. Smells great - nicely conditions.
  • Oribe Glaze - I use this halfway between my hair colorings. It's supposed to help bring the shine back like right after you get your hair dyed. I don't like how it makes my scalp feel after using it...kinda greasy/build-up-y feeling, so that's why I use it so sparingly. Plus it is heavily perfumed, and while I like it, I have eczema so I'm cautious about what washes down my body in the shower.

    Editing to add things I forgot: I use a special microfiber towel for drying my hair (cause it's supposed to help with frizz), then I air dry the rest of the way 99% of the time. I will use a straightener or curling iron periodically, but actually want to start using those more often. There's only so much pretty you can get without heat styling.

    I sleep on a satin pillow case because that's supposed to help with frizz and breakage.

u/allphaillya · 3 pointsr/sugarlifestyleforum

Give myself at least two hours to shower, makeup/hair and get dressed. I never feel at my best when I'm rushing to get ready. Days I need some extra self love I usually do an Argan Oil Hair Mask it smells amazing.
A good double wash and face mask with Pacifica Beauty
A good moisturizer and then
SPF Australian Gold Tinted I sub that for foundation on no makeup-makeup days.
Maybe do my nails/toes, take some CBD and watch a favorite TV show I love to rerun, if I need the extra chill time, though that's not on date days. Usually after a long shower and a good face/hair routine I feel refreshed and calmer, ready to take the day/date, anything on. Hope you can find something that works for you and your health improves. Best of wishes!


u/YouSophisticat · 3 pointsr/HaircareScience

Prevention of split ends is key.

First, don't wash your everyday. If you can, only wash with shampoo a maximum of 2 times per week. My washing schedule is usually Saturdays and Wednesdays. Also, when you use shampoo, make sure you are only massaging it into the scalp. Shampoo strips the natural oils in your hair and if you strip the oils from the ends your losing all that good hair nutrients that your ends desperately need!

Do not use heat. Let your hair dry naturally. Only use a straightener or curling iron on special occasions. There are a million no heat hair tutorials on Youtube that you can use if you need to style your hair. I never use a brush on wet hair and use a comb to detangle. When my hair is dry I use a wooden brush. The wood bristles soaks up the oils and when you brush through, it evenly distributes your hair's natural oils to the ends of your hair.

My most important piece of advice is doing hot oil scalp massage treatments biweekly. Oils have SAVED my hair! I typically use organic unrefined cold pressed (can be found at your local health food store and some grocery stores) coconut oil. I let it melt by sitting it under a lamp or by the heater. I don't recommend using a microwave to melt it, I read somewhere that it changes the makeup of the coconut oil. I start off by applying it all over my scalp and massaging it in for about 5-10 minutes. I apply the rest to the ends and stick my hair in a bun for the remainder of the day or overnight. You will need to shampoo this out, but again, only shampoo the roots. When the shampoo travels down your hair it will cleanse the ends. I like to switch up my oils or even mix them. So far, I've found the most results from using coconut, argon, and macadamia nut oils.

Once every 2-3 months, I will go in and trim my own hair. I cut my own hair due to EVERY SINGLE stylist not understanding what a trim is. A trim isn't 3-4 inches... so I learned how to trim my own hair. I only snip the tinniest amount of hair or snip a split end when I see one.

I hope this information helps. I went from hair past my breasts, to a platinum blonde (I'm naturally a dark brown). My hair was so damaged that I had to cut over 8" off. Two years later, I went blonde again and had to cut off another 5". The last year I went from a chin length bob to past shoulder length hair. I will never again go blonde, it was fun, but it damaged my hair BAD. Unfortunately, genetics has given me the gift of premature grays... so I do have to color every 6 weeks, but I use a semi-permanent hair color and only do the roots.

These methods are tried and true! Good luck! Long hair is like having a baby. You have to care, nurture and love your hair. It's a lot of upkeep, but it's totally worth it.

EDIT: I forgot to mention one more thing. Swap out your conditioner for a deep conditioning mask bi-weekly or once a week. This one is my holy grail

u/roseofjuly · 2 pointsr/curlyhair

Yeah, the curly & natural hair community - much like many communities - does have a habit of using a lot of jargon and specialized language that makes it difficult for new folks to ingetrate.

TGIN is a brand popularly used by curly-haired women - it stands for Thank God I'm Natural. You can find it at Ulta, Target, etc. TGIN "moisturizing shampoo" is probably the TGIN Moisture Rich Sulfate-Free Shampoo.

SM stands for SheaMoisture - they have several product lines including a "superfruit" line of products that is made for wavier/looser curl patterns. The mask is called the SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque. SheaMoisture is sold a lot of places, including Wal-Mart, Target, Ulta (limited lines), Amazon, etc.

As I Am is a another brand made for curly hair; their product is just called Leave-In Conditioner. They sell As I Am at Target and Amazon.

The Mane Choice is another curly-hair friendly brand. Their Heavenly Halo Softening Milk is one of my favorite moisturizers. You can get it at Target. (Noticing a trend?)

"Praying hands" is a technique used to apply product to the hair. You squirt some on your hands, then with the palms flat and open, press your palms together and slide them down a hank of hair to work the product in. It's called "praying hands" because your palms are flat and pressed together like they would be in prayer. It smooths the hair and reduces frizz. There's an article here.

"Squish to condish" is a little more difficult to explain, but here's a good article about it. It's basically just squishing water and conditioner into your hair. I'd watch a video to get a better idea of what this looks like.

I'm assuming you know what diffusing is (using a diffuser attachment on a blow dryer - helps maintain your curl pattern) and SOTC is "scrunch out the crunch". When you use gel to define your curls, the gel can dry into a hard cast. After the hair completely dries, you can put some oil on your hands and then scrunch them into your hair to remove that gel cast so you get soft, pliable curls.

Unless your hair is EXACTLY like the OP's, you might not get the same results with the exact same products. Most curly folks find they need to experiment with products in different categories until they find a routine that works well for them.

u/esseestpercipi · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

How often do you wash your hair? My hair was more oily when I wash it every day (I did high school swim team), but now that I'm washing every other day (or even less), it's not nearly as oily (as I understand it, same principle as an over-cleansed/under-moisturized face producing excess oil). If you feel like you can't stand not washing it every day, maybe try alternating with a dry shampoo until you feel better about it? My favorite dry shampoo is this Klorane one, though I know there are cheaper drugstore options too.

For the dandruff, I've found that for me, shampoos with sulfate tend to dry/irritate my scalp, so I'm currently using Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle shampoo ($4 at my TJ's). It's sulfate free and has tea tree oil in it, which is supposed to help dandruff. If you have some tea tree oil lying around, it might be worth a try to put a few drops in your shampoo & see how that turns out. For the sulfate-free shampoo; there are a lot of drug store options, though I haven't really explored them myself...

I don't condition my hair every time because it weighs it down & my hair is fairly straight & detangles easily by itself, but currently I'm loving this Amika nourishing mask (I got it in my Birchbox and really want to buy it but it's totally $40 & I can't justify it T_T). It makes my hair really soft and silky; I apply it only to my ends (from about chin-length to my ends, anyway)

In the past, I did try the Avalon Organics Tea Tree Shampoo & conditioner, but they just didn't play well with my hair & scalp. The shampoo dried out my scalp, which led me to condition my scalp, which led to scalp acne. :( YMMV, though!

Hope that was helpful!

u/Dpecs92 · 4 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

Have you ever tried not washing out your regular conditioner all the way? It's something r/curlygirl taught me and honestly game changing. You don't actually need to have curly hair to follow the curly girl method! My hair is wavy but using the different methods it taught me gives me bouncy, full curls without any heat and helping my formely bleached length heal.

Also, what are you using for shampoo and conditioner? The basis for CG is avoiding sulfates because it's harsh on your hair and dries it out, and also avoiding silicones because they coat your hair and prevent any other products from actually penetrating to do anything helpful.

My favorite leave-ins are Kinky Curly Knot Today (contains mallow which gives your hair amazing slip and sleekness,) Curls Co. Blueberry Bliss Leave in, As I Am leave in, but most of all, I love using a little bit of traditionally "wash out" conditioner since it's cheaper, convenient, & basically the same product anyway: Tressame Botanique Nurish & Replenish Conditioner with Coconut Milk & Aloe Vera, Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask + Avocado Extract, (surprisingly they actually mention using it as a leave in on the label) & Sally's Beauty GVP Conditioning Balm (dupe for Matrix)

u/robotjackie · 5 pointsr/FancyFollicles

hair masks can be a god-send. my hair is naturally almost black, and I dye it bright pink and white regularly, so I've spent a lot of time finding affordable, easy-to-use products that will restore its texture and keep it healthy.

my personal favorite hair mask is amika's nourishing mask with obliphica. it's not cheap, but you can find it discounted in certain places - just be careful, as there are fake versions of it all over the place. that link right there, I've tested myself several times, and know it's the real deal.

use a hair mask in place of your conditioner sporadically. I'm not sure of your dyeing history, or how damaged your hair is currently, but it doesn't look too bad. I would probably suggest using it once a week, and after every time you dye it. If it's still seeming dry, bump it up to a couple times a week. After you shampoo your hair in the shower (which, btw, you can look for a low-sulfate shampoo to keep it in better condition from the shampoo angle - pureology is fantastic, but it's mighty pricey), put the mask in your hair like you would regular conditioner. Be a little more generous with it on the ends of your hair. Clip it up (if you don't already have a claw clip in the shower, go ahead and get one - that'll keep your hair out of your way while conditioner and hair masks are working their magic). You need to leave it in for 3-5 minutes (you can leave it in longer if you'd like), so it's a good idea to use that time to do all the other shower things so that you're not just standing there. And rinse with lukewarm-cool water. When rinsing, focus on your roots, it's okay and actually good to leave a little bit on your ends.

If you don't want to spend for the amika right now, Sally's carries an alright mask called Miracle 7. That one uses argan oil, which works for some, but not for everyone - overall it tends to help, though. And if your hair is only a little bit damaged, and only needs a little extra help, don't overthink it.. Aussie's 3-minute miracle (that you can get in any grocery or drug store for under $5 - get the kind that says Moist) is surprisingly good.. I actually use it as my regular conditioner since I put my hair through hell.

u/manwatchingfire · 2 pointsr/curlyhair

Ok so I use Shea Moisture curl and shine masque
on my towel dry hair fresh out of the shower. About a quarter sized dollop. Then I'll put some sort of gel again a quarter sized dollop or less. Get the curls where you want them and dont touch your wet hair. Let it air dry or use a gentle hair dryer. I prefer air dry if I can. Once your hair is pretty much dry use your hands to "crunch" the gel. Dont run your fingers through it, just grab handfuls and squeeze.

I hope this all makes sense as I am astoundingly hungover at the moment. I was out last night when I replied to your post. But I came home and opened my drawers to tell you what I use because I want you to like your hair more. Give it an honest try (saturday/sunday might be the time to expirement) and let me know how it goes. Good luck OP.

u/Shannondoeshair · 2 pointsr/FancyFollicles

well great hair starts off with a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. I like Kenra or joico. Then using a good leave in conditioner as well as an oil to mend split ends, use a thermal protection before blow drying, kendra's blowdry spray, works wonders, i swear. use a ceramic flatiron or 1" - 1 and 1/4" curling iron or wand. This will make it not look as frizzy. section it off in 2 sections, curl bottom then sides and top. any pieces that still look frizzy, curl those again. Most important, use a really good deep conditioner/mask once to twice a week. You can also use coconut oil. on clean wet hair, towel dry a little bit but still damp, warm it up for like 2 seconds in the microwave, put on ends and leave on for about an hour. dont microwave deep conditioner/mask. These are just some examples, most hair care lines have the same stuff, KMS is a little bit cheaper and just as good.

u/NimetonTytto · 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Rave: Skinfood Argan Oil Silk Hair Mask Pack – I've been using this for a couple months now and it is the best deep conditioning hair treatment I've used. I originally didn't like it because the smell reminds me of calamine lotion, but the results are undeniable! The scent doesn't linger post shower so it's really a non-issue. I have waist length hair that has gone through years of coloring and it looks incredibly healthy since I started using this! My hair is extremely soft and looks great for 3 to 4 days after washing. I use it after shampooing and conditioning almost every time I wash (every 3-4 days) and I absolutely love it! And the price is unbeatable at $10 on Amazon Prime!

u/map_backwards · 1 pointr/RandomActsofMakeup

So this might be news to everyone, but I color/bleach my hair (say whaaaa?!) every 4ish weeks. I've been keeping it up since December of last year and a month or so ago it felt so straw-like and dry from all the damage. I was considering giving it a break so it didn't all fall off my head. UNTIL, on a whim, I bought the travel size version of this leave-in cream. After a week, it felt like it was doing something but that could have been me wishing and wanting it. I decided to buy this deep repair masque in the same line to maybe help the hair even more. OMG, almost a month later and my hair feels the closest to non-damaged hair as it ever has before. I mean it's still drier than what was typical for me, but pretty sure my hair is much happier with me now! :D

u/camiyeyo · 2 pointsr/FancyFollicles

I've done several at-home hair dye removal sessions on myself, and I've got the best results from doing what she's doing now, and them following up with the Joico Color Intesnity Eraser. It's a specially formulated bleach that you mix with a low volume developer (or in my case, 30 vol and this hair protector) and apply to the spots that need it. It DOES lighten virgin hair, but it's much more gentle than regular bleach and doesn't drive the dye further into the hair shaft which can happen with regular bleach. For me, it works best on pretty light hair, shades that aren't red or from Splat (ugh Splat), and if I have a helper to apply it to spots that need it only.

u/cambrewer · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Start using all natural hair products. No sulfates, parabens, dues, etc etc. most hair products you would find at the drug store are filled with chemicals meant to strip your hair (and make it feel really clean). Unfortunately, bleached hair has already been striped. You need to focus on resaturating the hair cuticle.

Use natural shampoo (or at least sulfate free) and a hair mask. Do not shampoo every day. Do not use heat on your hair. Sleep on a braid or a bun to combat frizz. Use natural hair oils or leave in products.

I'll attach some of my favorite products below.

Have you ever thought of including hitting a table punching bag into your self-care routine?

Joking (or not) aside, what makes me look forward to self-care time is that those minutes are completely mine. Example: I do a hair mask once a week, and for it to work I have to keep it on for 10 minutes. That time is pure free-time, a space where I can keep my mind off responsibilities and just stay on my phone/read something/staring into space without it being time wasted because I'm actually using it to take care of my hair! It's just an activity that doesn't require attention.

So my advice is: buy something that takes a while to act (more than five minutes, less than fifteen/twenty) and doesn't require much thinking/preparation, but just sits there doing its thing while you relax and enjoy your "free-time". It also needs to leave you room to move and not restrict your vision or hearing if you wan to read/listen to something.

u/LilyCatastrophe · 2 pointsr/beauty

I find that Art Naturals products are great for colored hair, I get the Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner
I have tried so many shampoos in my 42 years, this one is my #1 for color treated. Also I recommend every other week a deep conditioning treatment such as this argan Oil hair mask from Art Naturals. Depending on how often you actually have to shampoo your hair, a colored hair butter treatment can help keep your color peppy in between salon appointments. The only one I have experience with is: Joico Intensity Color Butter - I have a few more products that are awesome that I can't recall off the top of my head. I can look them up later today (4:45am now) when I've had a chance to sleep! Cheers!

How often do you protein treat?

Someone else posted on this sub that their fine curly hair liked protein so I tried it and my hair was like "Yaahhhh!!!" *angels singing, heavenly music plays*

P.S. After buying a 1x protein mask treatment, I went on Amazon and found this product (Aminotouch Natural Pure Protein Treatment). You mix it with your conditioner. My hair seems to like it and it's a lot cheaper than other protein treatments I've looked into.

u/IAmBrodyAMA · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I had to shampoo with it every day for about a week to get the initial crud off, which was pretty unpleasant, but then after that I was able to go down to the 2x/3x a week maintenance mode.

About the conditioner, I'm so sorry but honestly I don't know! I got it as a freebie in a tupperware from my last hair gig. From what I remember, it's basically straight-up olive oil mixed with some silicones and shea butter. I can't find anything quite like that on amazon, but this deep conditioner treatment mask looks like it might be kinda the same thing.

u/MisforMisanthrope · 3 pointsr/curlyhair

I have very thick 3B curls and I'm really loving Carol's Daughter leave ins, especially the Sacred Tiare line (it smells SO GOOD!) but I also like Shea Moisture products. I just got a sample of "The Good Stuff" leave in repair balm in my Target beauty box, and I'm excited to try it.

I too live in the depths of hell and need a lot of moisture when our temps get 110+ in the summer.

ETA: I just saw that you said deep, not leave in. Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque has been incredible for my hair. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MXDBWI6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I know this is an old post but take into account the weather situation. If it's muggy or damp I twirl my hair around and kind of stuff it into a beanie. It helps keep my hair soft and frizz-free. For products these are the two I recommend for your wife:

Skinfood Argan Hair Mask &
Moroccan oil

My hair is very thick and coarse. The hair mask is used once a week in place of a conditioner and it makes your hair feel silky afterwards for a long while. The Moroccan oil is light enough to not affect thinner hair if hers is thin and the shine is amazing. It should feel like butter after running a boar bristle brush through it.

I have super long curly hair and I am constantly battling the dry ends.

Honestly the best things for me are olive oil (literally, straight olive oil... all night) and this macadamia oil mask. Also I use the Generic conditioning balm from sally's. Super affordable, works wonders.

u/wherearethestarsss · 2 pointsr/feemagers

thank you!!! i wash it every 2 days with whatever shampoo and conditioner we have and once a week i use this (it makes my hair super soft). i also avoid putting my hair up in a bun to avoid split ends but that’s pretty much it haha but in this pic it’s curled so that might contribute to it looking nice

u/one__winged__angel · 3 pointsr/curlyhair

Hi there! Whilst my hair is currently doing okay moisture-wise, I also struggle with a dry scalp/dandruff and flakiness. My scalp is also sensitive and and gets itchy when overloaded with products so I have to be careful of that. At the moment, my way of managing it is to low-poo (not CG-friendly) once a week and co-wash (also not CG-friendly) every 3 or so days. I always focus the low-poo on my scalp and roots. This eliminates 98%~ of my flakiness at the moment, and until I can afford a proper CG-friendly medicated shampoo, this is what I'm going to stick with.

I've also seen that Cantu has a couple of products that show potential, namely the Refresh Root Relief with Apple Cider Vinegar and Peppermint Oil and the Refresh Root Rinse With Apple Cider Vinegar and Tea Tree Oil, but I haven't had chance to try either out.

I have used the Cantu Shea Butter Tea Tree & Jojoba Hair & Scalp Oil, but I haven't used it directly on my scalp enough to definitively say whether it helped with my dandruff. However, I do occasionally mix it in either with my hair mask or my leave-in conditioner when I feel my hair is extra-dry and it does make a difference. If you aren't currently using any hair oils, perhaps looking for one would be a good place to start to help your dry curls?

If you want to look for a CG-friendly medicated shampoo, I would start with this list from the Science-y Hair Blog.

I'm sorry I cannot be more helpful but I hope this has at least given you a few ideas on where to start.

u/Smith5001x · 1 pointr/amiugly

Your hair looks coarse and wiry. What about trying a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner such as Paul Mitchell Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo and Paul Mitchell Lavender Mint Moisturizing Conditioner. Then once a week do a deep conditioner such as Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner

A buzz-cut might work or just a heck of a lot shorter than what you have now.

If you do decide to try the Tinder route again, post a picture like the one of you in the black tank top looking straight at the camera. You are beautiful!

SkinFood Argan Oil Silk Mask - I can't vouch for the vendor, I just wanted to link you to what the product looks like (I live in Korea so I buy it here). It's a cream in a tube that you put on your damp hair after your shower, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off. A little goes a long way. I have a similar hair type to yours, normal thickness, curly/wavy, frizzy, and a bit heat damaged, and it does a pretty good job of bringing life back to my hair. I love it, will buy again, and totally recommend it to anyone with frizzy hair.

u/fuzzytwinkies · 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Skinfood Argan Hair Conditioner (or something like that) is great! I have super dry curly hair and I can feel it hydrating it.

The Roots Naturalle Virgin Hair Fertilizer Deep Conditioner is my favorite right now. O_O The shampoo is also very silky and feels almost like conditioner.

I also really like Art Naturals Argan Deep Conditioner especially for hair that is more loosely coiled like yours.

u/corgicoffee · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Thank you so much for the tips!!! I'm currently already sulfate and silicone free. I follow the curly girl method. I really love how moisturizing my current routine is. I use Maui moisture shampoo and Tresemme boutanique nourish and replenish conditioner. I only blow dry my bangs, the rest air dries.

Do you think it'd be okay for me to continue this routine, but add in a toning deep conditioner every so often to keep away brassiness? I was thinking of buying this one from Amazon:


u/seamonkee · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I have started using Argan oil mask/deep conditioner as a leave in for my curly hair when I plop and it's amazing! Even when I straighten my hair, it works beautifully. And for $16 it's lasted me over 2 months so far (since I don't wash my hair every day) and only use it as a leave in instead of a weekly repair.

I live in high elevation, in a very dry climate and it's the only thing I've found that works living in 10% humidity.

u/valentinogirl1 · 2 pointsr/HaircareScience

I wouldn’t recommend coconut oil because it’s so hard to wash out of your hair. The one time I used it, it actually made my hair dryer because I had to use so much clarifying shampoo to remove it!
You need a good deep conditioning hair masque. I personally like Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Treatment Masque

u/cbratty · 7 pointsr/AskWomen

This winter, I've been using a deep conditioner a few times a month. I recently got this one and really love it. I've also been taking a hair/skin/nails multivitamin, but I think I may actually switch to taking prenatal vitamins because I've heard they're even better for your hair.

Dry Scalp Help: Feel Like I have Tried Everything


I believe I have dry scalp and have tried many different things to try and alleviate it with no avail. I believe it is dry scalp because I never had a problem with until I started Accutane which is for Acne which basically dries you out really bad.


My routine is I wash my hair every other/ other other day. I never had an issue with dry scalp until I was prescribed Accutane a few years back. I used to have very oily hair and would wash my hair every day.


I have tried many different products: tea tree oil shampoo and conditioners, sulfate-free shampoos, an argan oil deep conditioner / ACV rinse as well as others.


Here are links to some products I have tried in the past










Any suggestions that could help!? Thanks!

u/sankitty · 1 pointr/Accutane

Seems like everyone covered most of it. Started using this Garner conditioner mask recently and it has been working wonders :) got it from Target!


u/very_veryinteresting · 3 pointsr/blogsnark


I like this argan oil mask for deep conditioning, and I think it's a really good value (the link is to Amazon, but it's not an affiliate link).

u/TourmalineTart · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

So I do Olaplex #3 on Wednesdays, and This on Sundays. I like it a lot, just make sure you rinse it all the way out!

u/nervousgrandma · 1 pointr/BlackHair

I love Design Essentials. I have red ends on my hair so those bits are dryer than the rest of my hair. This hair masque by Shea Moisture leaves my hair looking so juicy after I rinse it out. I use the Almond and Avocado leave in conditioner always. For any style I do including braid outs or wash n gos, I always use Curl Stretching Crème and Eco Styler Gel. Throughout the week to refresh or moisturize, I’ll either add oil (I’d link it but they don’t make it anymore) or spray some water and add a little bit of leave in conditioner.

My hair is also low porosity, so even though we have a similar texture what works for me may not work for you. After experimenting for a year I finally found a regimen that works for me :)

u/HelloKittyTiffy · 3 pointsr/curlyhair

I get blonde highlights on just the top portion and use this toner and it gives it a really nice silver tint. I mix the toner with my deva curl shampoo and use that 1-2 times a week and do a full mask treatment once a month

u/Sprinklepug · 2 pointsr/HaircareScience

These are two products I'm currently loving


Careful with this last one, the reviews are saying its a fake but I'm sure you can find this products in drugstores. I've seen it in target and cvs.

u/2centsdepartment · 3 pointsr/HaircareScience

Aminotouch Natural PURE PROTEIN... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ES4FJEU?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

I use this treatment every few weeks to months, depending on how much stress I put my hair through. I also add some to color mix when highlighting my hair. The results are fantastic.

It has 4 ingredients: water, hydrolyzed collagen, keratin, and the last one is a preservative

u/midnighteskye · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This hair mask would help everyone's hair be silky soft!!

u/toplegs · 10 pointsr/curlyhair

Hi, I have similar hair to yours, but probably thicker... I can't really tell from your picture. Anyway, I found some things that really moisturize my hair. In the shower I use this stuff as a normal conditioner. Even though it says masque, it works really well for my hair if I use it in the shower. I usually leave it in for about 10 minutes while I do whatever else I need to do in the shower, and then rinse it out last. I also use this leave in cream while my hair is wet. It really moisturizes my hair and smooths the frizz. Then I usually use this gel It seems to keep my hair really soft, at least compared to other styling products I've tried. I think the thing that helped the most was that shea moisture masque though, so I'd encourage you to try it!

u/kaptainkrk · 3 pointsr/curlyhair

CG method for over a year, but revamped what I do for it a week ago. Before: co-wash with maple holistics argan oil conditioner, scrunch in herbal essences totally twisted curl boosting mousse. Let hair air dry (no plopping). Every other wash using arvvazallia hydrating Argan oil mask.

After: co-wash with Shea moisture coconut & hibiscus curl moisture Co-wash, condition with maple holistics Argan oil conditioner (S2C), scrunch in Shea moisture coconut & hibiscus curl & style milk, scrunch in HANDFULS of L.A natural styling gel. Plop with microfiber towel for 15 min - 1 hour. Let air dry the rest of the way (which takes hours lol) and then scrunch the crunch out. Every other wash I condition with arvazilla hydrating argan oil mask instead of the maple holistics conditioner. Occasionally use neutrogena anti residue shampoo to get extra junk out of my hair. I also bought a silk pillowcase and have been sleeping on that.

Before and after, I wash my hair about once a week. On my before method, my hair would pretty much lose all curl by day 3. Now it holds the curl all week, but starts to feel really gross around day 6. I have some frizz problems, but I usually smooth it down with a very light amount of coconut oil.

So far I love the curls that I am getting through the use of gel! I was scared at first, but this sub is totally right about gel not being what it used to be.

u/catjuggler · 2 pointsr/HerOneBag

I’ve used this argon oil one and thought it worked well. I left it in way longer than recommended though (like half an hour, out of the shower)


I also had a mask at the salon once that was had keratin but wasn’t the normal straightening treatment. If you have a haircut near the time of your trip, you could check with your stylist.

u/dubaidouche1 · 1 pointr/dubai

My hair is super curly and thick too!
I wash it twice a week so it doesn't dry up like crazy..I use a deep conditioner so it moisturizes them enough (this is available in pharmacies/most supermarkets in Dubai).
But yeah, nothing helps when its this humid and hot, I end up just straightening it at home so I don't deal with it :/

You should try avoiding shampoos that have sulfates/parabens in it, they're very drying for curly hair.

u/gravelmonkey · 1 pointr/femalehairadvice

I use this about once a month to keep the brassiness out, and I always deep condition after. Consider your hair's porosity when determining how long to leave it in, I read it can turn your hair purple if you leave it on too long. I know my hair repels everything so I think I've waited as long as 10 minutes and was fine.

I was looking through some posts here and came across your comment. Wanted to confirm if it's this one before buying.

u/letsmakepeace · 1 pointr/curlyhair

I've watched so many YouTube videos and have followed the guides on here and product recommendations, they are so helpful!

So I have low porosity/thin/fine hair and I've been trying to take care of my hair more (I bleached my virgin hair last year and I regret it; I also cut my own hair recently using the double ponytail method and it has given me a boost in volume!). I have a new routine down that's been giving me amazing results but I still need to figure out how to keep this style to last for days...

Once a week my routine is this (ALERT - not a true CG method):

Pre-poo: I heat up a small amount of a homemade mix of coconut, jojoba, and caster oils. I rub that into my scalp and the lengths of my hair. I put it in a heat cap and leave it for 10 mins.

Shampoo: I shampoo TWICE using a sulfate free/clarifying shampoo (Giovanni). I do this and use this specific kind of product because my hair is low porosity so it gets weighed down easily from a lot of product build up. Cowashing is the enemy for low porosity. I suffer from oily/itchy scalp and dry hair so this really helps it to tone down.


Conditioner: My hair detangles like A LOT and I lose A LOT of hair. By the end of the week, my hair is rat's nest. I used to use my fingers and/or a wide toothed comb to detangle, but recently I just bought the Wet Brush Pro Quick Dry and it helped decrease my detangling time by 30% plus I shed a lot less. I just use a conditioner with lots of slip. I'm still trying to find one that is CG-approved and has lots of slip for my type of hair, but Giovanni does the trick right now. SQUISH TO CONDISH!

I rinse some of the conditioner out and put a deep conditioning masque on along with the heat cap again for 10ish minutes. I've been using a random one I found, but I'm going to be trying a SheaMoisture one soon.

I make sure to rinse all of the conditioners out AND rub my scalp to make sure it doesn't stay and cause buildup under hot water.

I then run Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave-in Conditioner through my hair, followed by LA Looks gel (just tried this out!). I style my hair using the denman brush (brush outwards from the scalp, scrunch, then push back. I put a little bit more of gel on my hands and scrunch the end a bit more.

I put my hair in a silk cap, air dry for 10-15 minutes, diffuse until 80% dry, SOTC, and fluff.

u/snake-eyed · 1 pointr/curlyhair

So my story is, I've been doing baking soda/apple cider vinegar washes once a week for about 2.5 years now. Yesterday I sort of came-to and realized how brittle and straw-like my hair feels. I was looking in the mirror and a lot of hairs around my roots seem like they're even stripped of color (I'm only 22 so not going grey... I hope).

So of course I hopped on the internet and read a few blogs of women who'd experienced the same slow decline in hair health due to BS/ACV. I quickly bought SheaMoisture's Restorative Jamaican Castor Oil [shampoo & conditioner] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0157K2GZO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and hair mask. Afterwards, I discovered this sub and the concept of co-wash, which intrigues me.

At any rate, the SheaMoisture stuff I bought doesn't have sulfates or parabens or silicones, but it does have castor oil (obviously) and rice protein. My question is: what's so bad about castor oil and protein?

Just for reference, I have really thick, frizzy, mid porosity?, 2c hair.

Tl;dr Destroyed hair with long term BS/ACV use, got new product with castor oil & protein, wondering how it is bad for my hair.
