Hair My Dear- Tips for dry curly hair

I always get questions about my hair, what products do I use etc... My mother and father are both of various nationalities which means I came out with very interesting hair, it's not curly it's more of a wavy frizz and it's very thick ( I think I have 4 times the amount of hair as a normal person). I do not chemically alter the texture of my hair in any way, my hair straightens out easily (if I even brush it too much it will be straight and then I have to wet it to try and get to look more curly).

Right now I am using:
Shampoo: Since I've run out of my Nexxus Shampoo I've been using Head and Shoulders- Yep. I tried Head and Shoulders, it gets my hair clean and it doesn't dry it out, it also helps with my dry scalp in the winter. I will repurchase Nexxus When I run out though and maybe use Head and Shoulders as more of a clarifying shampoo. I am also mulling about trying a natural shampoo...


Conditioner: Nexxus Humectress- I like this conditioner I buy the huge salon amount at Costco. It moisturizes my hair really well and it doesn't leave build up.

Deep Conditioner: Keratase Masquintense for thick hair. I like this deep conditioner a lot, I only need a small amount to coat my hair. This is great because I have a ton of hair so I'm used to using a lot of conditioner and going through products very quickly. My hair feels very moisturized after and it is a lot more manageable. I am thinking about trying "Ausie's DEEEEEP" conditioner though, since I have heard so many good reviews about it but I swear by Keratase, I've repurchased it multiple times.


Heat Protector: Kheils Silk Straightening Cream. I like this heat protectant because it is a cream, I think the oil ones are weird (it sort of seems like you would fry your hair if you use an oil?... maybe that's just me). It doesn't have a scent and it is light weight so it doesn't make hair hair oily. I always put this on my hair when I am going to heat style it. No if ands or buts. This is my all time favorite I've been using this for years.

So there you have it, I just make sure to have a really moisturizing conditioner and a shampoo that gets my hair really clean because I have pretty oily roots. I brush my hair before I wash it to distribute the oil out of my roots and I always deep condition my hair after I wash it. I put the deep conditioner on my hair and put a shower cap on top to let it sink in for about 15 mins, or if I am in a rush I put it on my hair in the shower and leave it on for a few mins before washing it out.
