I have been meaning to write more on hair care for so long, especially after seeing a demand for it on my Instagram. I must admit, that I have annoyingly frizzy hair at times as my hair quality suffered after getting highlights done two summers back. I absolutely enjoyed the change in my look because of the highlights but I plan on steering clear of chemical products for some time. With my coloured hair mostly grown out, I have been trying to keep up a religious routine to take care of my mane and nurture it back to its original quality.

NO NO TO OVERBRUSHING
I understand this may be strange for most of my FILLING BLANKS® family but I genuinely believe that over combing or over brushing my hair breaks the weak ends. I brush my hair a maximum of twice or thrice a day.
OILING MY HAIR
When I recommend oiling the hair, I find the need to clarify that one should not use a fancy processed oil. Your raw coconut oil will become your new best friend once you use it regularly and notice the difference it makes.
USING A WIDE TOOTH COMB
This is absolutely a personal choice and may not work for all hair types. I refuse to use a comb as it stretches my hair and weakens it. I opt for a wide toothed comb and I only use it when my hair is dry.
BIWEEKLY HAIR WASHES
Just as I do not over brush my hair, I do not over wash it either. I have fairly dry hair that creates frizz and I would rather preserve the moisture in it. Hence, I take hair washes twice a week and deep condition it each time.
FRIZZ FREE HAIR SERUM
The last three years have been spent experimenting and discovering hair serums that are suitable for my hair. I can blindly rely on my John Frieda Frizz Ease Original 6 Effects Serum to give me controlled hair without giving it an unnatural look and feel. Another option, a slightly more expensive one at that, is the MorocconOil Treatment Oil Hair Serum.
The easiest way to care for your hair is to take a break from all heat tools and chemical treatments and just let your hair breathe. It is assured that over time, your hair quality would improve
