5 Steps to Flawless Hair

You know that moment when you roll out of bed in the morning and your hair looks like an absolute mess? Well, what if I told you that you could wake up with flawless hair? New year, new ‘do, right? All you need is a little love and you might not even need to touch your hair when you get ready! Here are my 5 simple steps to waking up with flawless hair:

As many of you guys know by now, I have really coarse hair. And, when I’m super busy or in a rush, the last thing I want to do is think about what to do with my hair. Just throwing it up in a top knot or ponytail seems like my only option sometimes. But recently, the CINCteam and I have been trying out different methods to continuously achieve flawless hair.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

I was introduced to apple cider vinegar years ago as part of a detox I did, and to be honest, after that experience I was a little scared by the product because it tasted and smelled so horrible. Then, my mom made me an apple cider vinegar hair mask that changed my life but who had the time to make that every week, right? That’s when I discovered this apple cider vinegar hair rinse by DpHue that changed my hair completely. Using a hair rinse basically means you replace it with your usual shampoo and conditioner that you use every day (I still shampoo and condition my hair but a lot less now).  Apple cider vinegar actually cleanses your hair and scalp without stripping all the good oils your hair needs to keep it hydrated and moisturized. At first, it felt weird not to do the traditional shampoo and condoning but after a week, I saw the difference. I also use the apple cider vinegar leave in after I rinse my hair which is a total game changer! I promise you will get over the smell once you see how big of a difference it makes!

2. Coconut Oil 

What CAN’T coconut oil do? A good coconut oil hair treatment is an inexpensive and effective way to get your locks super soft. Take a handful of oil while it’s still a bit firm and massage it throughout your hair. You can either do your entire head (roots to tips) or just the ends of your hair.  Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes for a great hair mask, then shampoo & condition as you normally would for super soft & hydrated hair.

3. Stop Towel Drying 

When you get out of the shower, do you usually throw your hair up in a towel as you go about your nighttime routine? Well STOP! Using a normal towel can cause some serious damage. Instead, try one of the microfiber towels or hair turbans. They absorb the excess water quickly without harming your hair!

4. Use the Right Pillowcase 

Using the right pillowcase is a subtle way to make a big difference. Sleeping with a silk pillowcase (like this one) is a great way to help prevent wrinkles on your skin, but also help your hair! A normal cotton pillowcase can suck out moisture and leave your hair frizzy and dehydrated, but a silk pillowcase can help keep your hair shiny and strong!

5. Eat Right

Last but not least, eat right! I know it might sound redundant, but your diet can really take a toll on your hair, as well as your skin. Adding superfoods like salmon, walnuts, spinach and even sweet potatoes to your diet can help your hair stay strong. Not to mention the fact that the rest of your body and skin will thank you!

Do you have any flawless hair tips? Let me know down below! PS: If you are feeling kind of lazy and in a rush to looking fab than when all else fails just ask for a blowout! I always ask for rollers in my hair as they are blow drying for that extra volume!

    These are great. I’ve absolutely loved coconut oil for years now and it’s the only reason I think I’ve been able to grow it so long. Apple Cider Vinegar stripped the color out of mine though. I know it works incredible for so many people but mine was pretty crazy. Thanks so much for the great tips! I’ll upgrade my pillowcase asap!

    Thanks for the useful tips Chriselle! I will try everything! I also use natural extract from Aloe, directly from the leaf. It’s a natural shining product and also for the face is very good…it prevents and cure pimples. You definitely have to try this.

    I was wondering what was the apple cider hair mask your mom made?
    Thanks for all these hair tips!

  • Polly says:

    I’ve heard great things about apple cider vinegar and started adding it to my smoothies a few years ago. I never tried using it as a hair mask though. That’s something that I need to try!

    Gotta try the hair towel! How many times a week do you use the Apple Cider Rinse? Do you recommend a product to lessen the smell of the cider?
