I’ve always had relatively healthy hair. Never too dry, never oily, and always way thicker than I could manage. Most of the time, I just let it do its own thing and didn’t bother with styling products. I have been dying it since I was 15, first because I wanted different colors (including one Strawberry Shortcake disaster, and the black that would not fade), then because I dyed it so much that it went grey a little too early. Other than that, though, I tried to leave it alone so we could live in some sort of harmony. I never really gave much thought to things like deep conditioners, special shampoos, or products like ProSanté Nourishing Scalp Treatment from Shaklee because my hair really wasn’t a concern.
Then one day, my mom said “let’s straighten your hair!” That was about three months ago, the first night I went out with the guy who would become my boyfriend. Even though it wasn’t technically a date (we went with another friend to keep it casual), I still wanted to look good. So my mom straightened my hair, I loved it, and now I’m hooked on a flat iron.
Funny how quickly one can become dependent on hair-styling tools. Plus, the flat iron was a gateway tool that led to a blow dryer (I refuse to straighten my hair when it’s wet, even if the flat iron says I can, because sizzling hair can not be a good thing). Of course, I also had to incorporate balms and other useful gunk to ensure that my naturally wavy hair cooperated, and some spray to make sure the other products didn’t kill my hair. All that stuff adds up, and as a result, my hair has been lacking its usual healthy feelings.
ProSanté Nourishing Scalp Treatment From Shaklee helps restore your scalp to a healthy condition. In fact, ProSanté translates to “pro-health.” The formula blends 10 different herbs, minerals, and vitamins that work together to restore proper moisture balance to your scalp, ease irritation, and help strengthen the follicles to prevent breakage during combing or brushing. It’s a leave-in formula, and can be applied to wet or dry hair, so it’s super easy to work into your daily routine. Just twist the cap, place 20 drops on your scalp, massage into your hair, and you’re done for the day. It’s not greasy or oily, and it absorbs into your hair so you can proceed with styling right away. I’ve been using it for about two weeks and while I can’t attest to whether it thickens your hair (as I said, mine is already pretty thick), it definitely reduces breakage and makes my scalp feel healthier all around.
I love your hair, wish my way half as thick as yours!! Having natural curls myself, I like to change it up when I actually do wear my hair down. Tony hates when I straighten it, one things he actually fights me on *he loves my curls*. I also have never been one to get into the whole *gotta have tons of hair care products* but recently went out and bought up half the salon with products! Still on my search of that one miracle product that fixes my frizzies.
Isn’t it funny how you pretty much go all or nothing with hair products? I either use nothing at all (hey, some days, I don’t even use shampoo, lol!) or an arsenal of stuff to make it cooperate. My hair doesn’t like being straightened, so when I wash it the next day, it rebels by curling more than before. Little does it know that I prefer it either really curly or really straight, and none of this in-between nonsense. I like your curls!
