I get A TON of questions on how I take care of my hair since I get it done so often. My hair has gone through a lot and I really try to make sure I take care of it. Hence, I’m always searching and trying products new products for my hair in the hopes of finding what actually works for me. And in todays blog post, I’ll be sharing a step-by-step of my current hair care routine: what’s been helping my hair to combat damage and breakage.
Here are the steps:
STEP 1: CLEANSE
Look for a shampoo and conditioner that both strengthens and moisturizes hair
I’ve been using Matrix Total Results The Rebond 3-Step System Shampoo, Pre-Conditioner and Conditioner for the past 6 months now and it has helped my damaged hair tremendously! This line not only repairs damaged hair but it also brings it back to life by making it stronger and smoother. What I love about this 3-step routine is the extra step of pre-conditioner—I find that it really helped moisturize my extremely dry and damaged hair. The shampoo cleanses build up without striping out the color of your hair, then the pre-conditioner builds resilience and shine, and lastly, the conditioner seals in moisture and protects the hair from inside-out! It’s perfect for anyone who colors or chemically treats their hair.
STEP 2: MOISTURIZE
Look for leave-in treatments that will help with damage/breakage.
I always apply an oil treatment after washing my hair to prevent it from getting dry and damaged! I’ve been using the Matrix Oil Wonders Indian Amla Strengthening Oil and I just really love how my hair feels so soft and healthy after applying it. This product is formulated with Indian Amla Oil that renews fragile weakened hair and restores its strength. It smells amazing too!
STEP 3: PROTECT
Look for a heat protectant spray to avoid heat/styling damage
I make sure to apply a heat protectant spray on my damp or towel dried hair before I start styling. Lately I’ve been using the Style Link Heat Buffer Styling Spray by matrix! It has a lightweight, fine mist formula that can be applied to dry or damp hair (I prefer damp). It leaves my hair feeling less damaged and feeling smooth and shiny!

I find this step-by-step process very helpful especially with overly processed hair! I tend to switch things up every now and then since I love discovering new products, but I use this step-by-step process as a foundation on how I look for new products to try. It’s so important to really know how to take care of your hair and find products that work best for you. I hope you that you find this hair care routine helpful, and I’ll keep you updated when this routine changes.
