No Bad Hair Days Disclaimer: *not at all farm related*

Hey everyone! I’ve been obsessing just a bit about hair lately. Healthy hair is a passion of mine and I take it quite seriously. I made a quick video to share my latest discovery. Here’s to only good hair days!

Happy Friday!

Caring for Thin Hair

caring for

Hey there!  I have been working on hair health for a while and I thought I’d share a bit of what I have learned in my process of trial and error. I find so many things for natural hair or curly hair and thick hair but have been frustrated in the thin hair department.  I hope this helps someone! Also, let me know if you have any hair helps for thin hair and we can share the hair love. Have a GREAT hair day!

DIY, Getting Girly

Hair

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!

Here is my hair this fall. I wanted to test my hair improvement practices first before posting. I needed results.

Now it is January and I can see a difference. A bit more thickness and lots more shine. Plus, the silkiness….oo-la-la!

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.

Here is the BEFORE on the hairline. This is the area that I notice the most. I have to be a bit creative at times when styling my hair because it can be pretty bare :/

Same area a couple months later. I’m thinking I’ll keep the egg masks coming!

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.

Stay beautiful!
