I have been on a mission since I can remember to have “Commercial Worthy” hair. You know, strong hair that can be tied in a knot. And then equally thick flowing hair that would wave in the breeze and never tangle. This was my dream. I think my obsession started with the Disney Princesses. Their hair was ALWAYS perfect!! And of course, I was obsessed with Pocahontas. Even her animated hair was perfect. But back to the point…commercial-worthy hair. This dream was hard to make a reality because I have baby fine – somewhat thick – straight hair. Due to my diet and the harsh chemical products, I was using, my hair was dry on the ends and oily at the scalp, flat, and never did what I wanted. At the time of my obsession, I was determined to be blonde which was not helping matters. I honestly hated my hair which is a horrible thing to do! It took lots of patience, an “ah” moment, and a little hair education to bring me around. I am now happy to say that I love my hair![ninja-popup id=3836 autoopen=true]
My first problem was that I thought you were just born with perfect hair. But honestly what is perfect hair? What you wish you had but weren’t born with? Some would say my perfectly straight locks that never need a flat iron are perfect. I, on the other hand, think they can be flat and tangle-y. Why do we always want the hair we weren’t born with? I think the biggest change happened for me when:
- I realized my natural hair was my perfect hair God gave me! The more I tried to embrace it and work WITH it (instead of making it something it’s not) the more it would make me feel beautiful.
- Commercial worthy hair takes work. Lots of work!! It’s a process that’s easy to do but takes continual dedication to see results.
- Commercial worthy hair isn’t accurate! This is a long convo for another post but just remember you can’t always believe what you see. The term “TV magic” is a real thing.
Strong Hair Tip
As I said before, hair education is essential. You need to know how your hair works and what natural tools you can use to get the results you want. I’m excited to post lots of hair education tools as I grow my blog. But to get you started, check out my Healthy Hair Overnight post. Here I talk more about the steps I take to get healthy hair while I sleep!
In that post I share my use of oils for healing and how I use my DIY Strong Hair Serum each night (recipe below).This serum is amazing for strong hair and promotes growth. I use my high quality Essential Oils to receive the best and most potent plant powers available. Be careful purchasing oils from an unknown supplier or discount store. The quality of oil can be compromised as well as mixed with other substances to dilute the oils. To purchase the oils I use click HERE. Look at some of the amazing benefits you will receive:
Deep conditions hair and promotes hair growth.
Stimulates your roots, increases circulation, and improves hair growth. CAUTION: omit this oil if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have epilepsy, or are prone to seizures.
Increases circulation to the scalp and promotes hair growth. An excellent oil for thinning hair as it stimulates hair follicles and helps prevent hair loss.
Promotes hair growth by simulating the circulation in the scalp.
Perfect for its rich nutrients including Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It heals split ends, promotes shine, and tames frizz.
Reduces frizz and repairs damage. Wonderful if you have dandruff or dry scalp.
