With all the various hair regimes, new products and different testimonies flying around, you'd wonder what is truly best for you. But in reality, no one hair regime or product is right for everyone! In order to find out the best products and routines for ourselves, we need to be willing to take some time, and invest more into finding what's right for ourselves. Start simple! For example, try using Coconut oil once, twice or three times a week for at least 2-4 weeks. If you feel your hair isn't loving Coconut oil so much, try switching to Jojoba, Almond, or any other oil! Here are some of M.E.'s suggestions for different and common hair issues!
1. Low Porosity
If you feel your hair is too dry, or not moisturized enough, maybe you need to up that hydration! Try spritzing your hair with water everyday 1-2 times a day, then add any moisturizing oil of your choice! If you really wanna get that moisture in, try soaking your hair with water each time you shower, and re-apply a moisturizing oil of your choice! For this I recommend lots of H2O mixed with M.E.'s unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil, Virgin Olive Oil, or Jojoba Oil. You can spritz on the go or soak for an hour. Try it out everyday to every other day, for at least two weeks!
2. Dandruff/Itchy Scalp
Again, this area has to do with hydration and moisture, and/or could have direct relation to skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis (me) and more. In fact, I actually helped treat my own psoriasis, simply by giving my hair some good old H2O everyday, as well as applying my favorite oil mixture Ultimate.ME Hair Growth Souffle. I apply this mixture to my scalp every two days, and for almost 6 months now I haven't had a single issue with dry patches and/or itchy scalp. My scalp has cleared up and feels fresh and clean! I would definitely recommend the Ultimate.ME Hair Growth Souffle, the Revive.ME Anti-dandruff Souffle, or a hot oil treatment of your choice. Oils we recommend include: Tea Tree Oil mixed with Coconut oil, Ylang Ylang oil mixed with Jojoba Oil, Lemongrass oil mixed with sweet Almond oil.
3. Damaged Edges and Ends of Hair
This is a particular issue, here we are focusing on reviving damaged parts of the hair. Starting with damaged edges, the best place to start is by decreasing the amount of tugging and pulling on the edges. This means decrease the amount of tight braids and ponytails. Instead, try wearing your hair out, down and around! Or try wearing wigs instead of harmful extensions. For damaged ends, we recommend trimming down the damaged area, as it can affect the new hair growth. Also lay off the heat, coloring and chemicals as well! Make sure to apply lots of water, moisturizer/oil since it is the oldest part of the hair as well. In order to grow back your edges and revive your hair, continue to nourish the roots and ends with water and oils best know for hair growth: Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil, Coconut oil, 100% Pure Argan oil, Virgin Avocado Oil or Aloe Vera Oil!
4. Hair loss and Hair fall
Hair loss and Hair fall can also be a bit tricky because it can be due to many factors. Your hair loss/fall could be due to genetics, stress, diet, harmful products and other related issues. For this we can't stress enough how important it is to take care of our physical and mental health because how we feel on the inside will ultimately reflect on the outside with things such as sudden acne, hair fall and more. We recommend to stay relaxed, eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water, get lots of sleep, meet your friends and do your best to manage your daily activities and save time for me time! If you want a little extra boost to help you out while you're on the go, choose M.E.'s Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil or Aloe Vera Oil.
5. Soft n' Shiny Hair
Are you looking to make those curls bright and bouncy, or those locks glow in the night, flowing in the wind? Definitely look to M.E.'S 100% Pure Argan Oil, Virgin Olive oil, or Unrefined Shea Butter! These oils do wonders as they not only add shine and luster but they are also very moisturizing and nourishing the hair, making the actual hair healthier and full of life!
Moral of the blog, there are many ways to achieve the results you're looking for. The important thing is to keep the hair hydrated and moisturized. Once you have these down packed, try testing various items to see which one works best for you. So relax, sit back and let M.E. do the rest.
