I have been working on my hair for a while now. I have naturally thin hair and fine strands. While it is silky and quick to fix I began to worry that I may not have much to work with in my later years. I cut out sulfates a couple years ago. I use heat sparingly. My new tactics include using a WHOOOLE lot more oil. I now oil the last 6-8 inches before and after washing. I have added a weekly hair mask to my routine. It must be all those farm grown eggs that did the trick- my hair loves it!
The second picture may not be very obvious but I wound it a bit tighter and still had more thickness so I know there was an improvement.
I have been cheating just a bit. I am at heart a lazy girl and I totally skipped the prewashing and now I apply my mask to dry, unwashed hair. I’m going to wash out the mask anyway so I saved myself the trouble.
I have been using an argan oil for my pre and post shower oil but you could easily use olive oil for a less expensive product.
The basic hair mask I use can be found here and it can be altered a million different ways. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or give yourself an extra treat by adding a fancier oil/conditioner to the mix.
