    Hey! I was wondering what is your haircare routine? Like washing your hair if I'm going to be specific.

    I normally wash my hair with shampoo (Loreal extraordinary clay shampoo) and then I use coconut oil as a conditioner. I leave the coconut oil in depending on what I'm doing, for example shaving my legs/arms, or if I cba to do that then leave it in until I was my body. Then I pat dry my hair and comb through it whilst its damp and leave it to airdry,

    My hair is pretty long (hip length) and I really don't like it tbh cause it gets dry pretty quickly. Others recommend using oil but i feel like it makes my hair look greasy.

    What are your hair care routines? Also, any advice on how to make hair in general look better?

    Btw I was my hair once a week because I'm hella lazy aha

    I used to wash my hair everyday, but now I do so every two days. Normally I just use shampoo. I used to have quite long hair, but I cut it just past the shoulders as it is more easier to maintain.

    Getting a haircut, even if it is just a trim, every so often is quite good for the hair. If it is quite dry, you may want to switch to a different shampoo?

    I trim it every so often, but my trim I mean cut off the dead ends aha because my parents would kill me if I cut it any shorter.
    I've trialed and errored like so much but I dunno, its like all shampoo is just the same to me. I feel like it gives me the same results.

    I feel like some shampoos are better than others. I also find if I use a shampoo for a long period of time, my hair stops being as nice, so I switch shampoos from time to time.

    I've also heard of hair masks? You apply it to the hair and it gives it more moisture and nutrients, although I have never used it before.

    I use John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Deeper shampoo and then sometimes a Herbal Essences conditioner. I don't like using a lot of product on my hair as it's naturally quite oily. I then let it air dry or blow dry occasionally if I'm going out, I'm lucky that my hair looks good even when I don't do anything to it.

    I wash with conditioner then wash with shampoo. I rinse with cold water and style with coconut oil. I let it air dry 😐.

    I shampoo my hair 3 times and condition my hair 4 times using the thick and full shampoo and conditoner. I use my fingers to untangle any knots and after I dry my hair then I use a curling oil to make my curls pop. If I don't want to use the curling oil, I use coconut water and this oil that makes her healthy and shiny.
    On some days, I use leave in conditioner and hair masks.

    I like to use a wide tooth comb, not the soft hair girl ones 😂

    You style it with coconut oil? I use it as a conditioner although I don't know what the correct way is

    Wow you really like to take care of your hair! And washing it three times in one sitting or a week?!?! You seem to know your hair very well to know what products it needs

    How does your hair turn out after it has dried? Is it frizzy? Dry? Smooth? Silky?

    No...I don't use coconut oil to style. I rarely use anything to style but sometimes I use Eco styling gel. I just use coconut oil to keep it moist and shiny and smelling good. I don't really need to use anything else tbh. Water and Jesus.
