What I Wear-Burnout Tee And

When at all possible, I like to respond to my readers comments privately, however, I thought this one would be something other people might be interested in. 

           Andie Asked:"How do you care for your long hair? (shampoo,conditioner,etc) Andie :)"  

I'm far from the healthiest person, however I like to keep the food I eat and the products I put on my hair/body as natural as possible. In the last few years I did a little research on shampoo, coming to the conclusion that I no longer wanted to use shampoos with sulfates. The sulfates in regular shampoo actually strip you hair! Which can lead to thinning, unhealthy hair. So I switched to sulfate free shampoo. I currently use: L'oreal Reconstruct sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, Organix shampoo and conditioner and Renpure shampoo and conditioner. All are sulfate free and made of natural ingredients. They are a bit expensive (we only buy shampoo when it's on sale, or we have a coupon). A great way to get shampoos cheap is to look out for mail-in-rebates hanging on the bottle. I've gotten several Renpure shampoos and conditioners free by using mail in rebates.

I also think that vitamins and a good diet are essential for caring for your hair. I used to take Folic acid and fish oil, but switched to a multi-vitamin that includes folic acid and many others.

It's important to keep long hair conditioned and healthy, I try to do a mayo hair mask (basically you smear mayo all over your hair and let it sit for 20-30 minutes under a plastic bag on your hair) every so often. I also really like the L'oreal intensive night repair creme-it doesn't leave your hair oily at all! Surprising since it feels super oily going on. I also try to drink plenty of water (this also helps skin in addition to hair).

Being gentle with your hair is important, combing it whenever possible, not brushing it while wet, etc. Keeping it trimmed when the ends become split or scraggly is also important (though painful if you're trying to grow it out!).
Hope this answers your question!
