You talked about "eating right, exercising regularly, [and] taking care of [your] body (teeth, hair, skin, etc.)" in one of your previous posts. Mind if I ask what skincare, hair, and teeth products you use? What's your routine?
sure, no problem! just get ready for a whole slew of products haha. currently…
hair: i use pantene pro-v, aussie (my fave!), or head&shoulders, but it doesn’t make too big of a difference to me. other stuff…
oh, also, i do use tea tree oil for my nails every once in a while (either by soaking them with a combo of the oil and water, or massaging the oil into my nails directly).
anddd that’s about it for what i use! haha. :)
in regard to brushing your hair wet.. when else are you meant to brush it? if it tries knotted then it's a lot harder to get the knots out and it's also harder to part? but i guess i've always brushed my hair wet then left it until i wash it again but yeah.. it doesn't make sense to me!
oh no, i wouldn’t leave my hair to dry in knots either— i definitely recommend that you detangle your hair right out of the shower. however, by that, i mean to do it with a wide-toothed comb, rather than a brush.
why? when your hair is wet, it’s at its most vulnerable state. brushing wet hair can cause breakage, thereby facilitating split ends, which i’m sure no one wants. really though, it’s not even good to brush your hair at all. unless you’re super careful, brushing typically results in snagging, and you end up tugging hair out too.
personally? i use a wide-toothed comb while my hair is still saturated in conditioner. that way, i’m still able to detangle my hair but it doesn’t take long.
and when my hair is dry, i still use a wide-toothed comb— except i work my way from the tips of my hair all the way to the top of my head. i do that in order to prevent tugging at my hair, which can also cause breakage.
extra tips? you should always be gentle with wet hair because it’s so delicate. that means not rubbing your hair vigorously with your towel! i usually just squeeze the water out of my hair, twist it up in my towel for a little bit, and then let it air-dry.
haha i know, it may seem like a lot of extra effort. in fact, a lot of people say that in their own experience, they don’t find it necessary to take such precautions. the “experts” recommend it, and i still do it anyways. just figure out what works for you! :)
go natural for a day or two a week!
