My most frequently asked questions usually revolve around my hair and haircare. I wanted to put together a post containing my most frequently asked hair related questions. I also provided an opportunity for you all to ask some questions on a recent Instagram post. I will be including those questions in this post too 🙂

Question #1: Is you hair your natural color?: When I was younger, my hair was bleach blonde. As I have gotten older, my hair has definitely gotten darker. My hair stylist says that I still naturally have about five different levels of blonde in my hair. About once a year I get a what is called a balayage. A balayage is where the hair stylist “paints” different highlights in for a more natural look. This definitely helps to lighten my hair and your roots aren’t as noticeable when your hair starts to grow out. My hair is on the darker side right now, so I am due for a balayage in the next month or so (if we every get out of quarantine).
Question #2: What shampoo and conditioner do you use?: Redken is definitely my “go to” when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. My hair stylist recommended this brand to me. I always wait for them to go on sale at Ulta. I think Target even carries them now! It smells amazing and I love all of the different types of shampoos and conditioners they have—from one that soften to ones that help to extend color treated hair.
Question #3: What helps to keep your hair looking conditioned?: I apply the UNITE 7 Seconds Detangler Leave-In Conditioner after every shower. I always stock up so I never go without it. It makes your hair feel soft and smooth. It also smells yummy! Also, my hair is always SUPER tangled after I shower. This product saves me from so many tears. I combine this with my Wet Brush and I’m set!
Question #4: Is that your natural hair texture? If so, how do you maintain it?: I do have more naturally wavy hair. To promote waviness, I sleep in a french braid every single night. The key I have found to waking up with awesome wavy hair is to put your hair in a french braid/braid when it is about 75% dry. I have found that if I put my hair immediately into a braid after the shower, I still have damp hair when I remove the braid–which means your waviness won’t hold as well.
Question #5: Do you use heat on your hair?: I very rarely use heat on my hair. I think that is what helps to make it grow so long and healthy. If you struggle with growing healthy hair, I highly recommend that you only heat style your hair when absolutely necessary. If you are going to use heat products, make sure to use a heat protectant.
Question #6: Do you wash it everyday?: I typically wash my hair every 2-3 days. I do tend to break that rule if I had a very sweaty workout though. There is nothing I can’t stand more than the feeling of super sweaty hair. Yuck. In between showers, I use the Not Your Mother’s dry shampoo. My whole family (mom, sisters, etc.) are hooked on this brand for dry shampoo. It works wonders and it is also very inexpensive.
Question #7: Do you recommend any deep conditioning hair masks?: I have just started to recently dabble in the realm of hair masks. The first one I tried was from the brand, Ouai. I loved it! I definitely noticed a difference in smoothness when I used it. I’ve also heard sooooo many great reviews about the one from Olaplex. That one is on my list to try!
As always, don’t ever hesitate to ask me any questions! I am always happy to help 🙂
