My Hair Regime

Hello wonderful people! I was looking through my posts and I found this old post that I had forgotten all about.  Hehe silly me ^-^; So today I decided to share with you all my hair regime.  I get a lot of comments about my hair and how I take care of it so here we go.

First off, I am half Burmese and half black (most people call me Blasian though lol) so my hair is naturally curly from my father's side.  It takes a lot of work to keep my hair the way it is now.  Every 3-4 months I have to get my hair permed in order to keep the roots straight and flat for me to flat iron the rest of my obnoxious hair.  My mom does the best perms ever with a $5 perming kit from the local beauty supply store.  What's the kit? It's Luster's Pink Smooth Touch Relaxer Kit in Regular.

'If you ever need a perm, you should go talk to my mom lol.  Anywho, it can take up to 3-4 hours to fully perm, rinse, condition, blow-dry, and straighten my hair in one day depending on the length of my hair. Since my mom bought hair extensions, I'll probably be cutting it short from now on to avoid lengthy perming days.

Second, I don't use any ordinary hair straightener.  The straightener I use is the Maxius Maxiglide Xpress Flat Iron.

You can buy this straightener on for $59.95 but I bought mine on QVC for a lower price.  This straightener has little teeth-like pins to detangle and smooth out hair as it straightens and it has a built-in steam burst to hydrate the hair.  This baby is my life savior.  It literally takes less time to straighten my hair with this straightener than with other straighteners.  I don't use it on a daily basis. Just only on days after I've washed my hair.  I just use a regular flat iron to get rid of any kinks in my hair and then I'm good to go.

Third, I use the Wen Haircare Cleanser by Chaz Dean to wash and condition my hair. Again, I bought this on QVC for $40 rather than buying it at his site

Other shampoos and conditioners leave residue in my hair and don't fix the tangles and knots that come with washing hair but this cleanser is completely different.  It is a shampoo, a condition, a detangler all in one.  It uses herbs and natural oils to cleanse and condition the hair all in one step.  It doesn't lather up but it does create a sensational foam that you massage right into your scalp, making you feel like you're in heaven.  Here are some pics of me after I've used Wen:

This was way earlier in the year when I had dyed my hair red. The color had faded out fast but I was surprised after using Wen to see that there were still some red parts in my hair.  It really made the faded red color pop out more.

The results?  Hair color pops out more, the hair itself is loses that dry straw look, and it's super soft and silky to the touch. Wen Haircare has many products to tend to each kind of hair: dry, oily, thick, damaged, and normal but for me I tend to use the Fig cleanser which is suited for thick hair that needs moisture.  Both my mom and I have been using this product since Christmas and it is an absolute necessity for my hair regime. I can't live without it!

And that is the end of my hair care regime. :) Does anyone else use any of these products?  What do you all think about them?

  1. I've always wanted to try Wen because the commercials looked so appealing, but I've never known anyone who actually uses it.
    But after reading what you wrote, I may just try it out for myself now :)
