5 Products I Use to Keep My Hair Healthy

Updated: May 16, 2023

Maintaining healthy looking hair has been instilled in me from a young age. My maternal grandmother was a licensed beautician and she played an important role in influencing my hair care routine.

I have experimented with different hair styles and colors over the years. Some where wins and others were misses. What has helped to keep my hair healthy and strong is using the right hair products. Through trial and error I have found several products that work best for me.

Here are some of the products I’m currently using in my hair regime:

1. Shea Moisture Strength & Restore Shampoo (Shampoo) I’ve been using this product for several years to wash my hair. It helps to clean my scalp and my hair fresh without over drying my strands.

2. Shea Moisture Strength & Restore Mask (Conditioner) After I wash my hair I use this mask. Sometimes I use it to deep condition my hair. When I do, I wrap my hair with plastic wrap and let it set over night. Then I wash it out in the morning. When I do this it leaves my hair incredibly soft and prevents breakage. 3. Kinky Curly Knot Today (Hair Lotion) My hair is naturally curly. When I wear my hair this way it’s important me to use the right products to keep my curls defined and frizz at bay. I like using this product because it doesn’t weigh my hair down and it has a light scent.

4. Kiss Colors & Care Edge Fixer (Hair Gel) I started using this product a few years months ago. It’s a favorite of mine to use as of late because it takes my edges and smells good.

5. Moroccanoil Treatment (Hair Oil) I’ve been using this hair serum for for many years. When I use it I concentrate the product on the ends of my hair where it’s more prone to being dry.

Thank you for sharing this insightful look into your hair care routine. Your mention of your grandmother's influence on your hair journey adds such a heartwarming touch. While I haven't personally tried the Shea Moisture range, it's evident from your experience that they have some fantastic products. Your method of using the mask and wrapping your hair overnight sounds like a deeply nourishing treatment—I'm curious to see how it might work for different hair types. I've heard quite a bit about Moroccanoil Treatment but haven't taken the plunge yet. After reading your post, I'm tempted to give it a go, especially for the ends of my hair. The tribute to Cheslie Kryst adds a thoughtful depth to your post, showing…
