1. Save Money On Hair Products
I have natural curly hair, I have a really hard time with it when i were young because most the kids around me have straight hair. When I got into high school, I kept going to hair salon twice a year to do permanent straighten to my hair. I was not happy with the colour of my hair either. It is not really black like most Asian girl, it is more gray so I dye it continuously for three years to brown, dark brown or golden brown. My hair ended up really dry and a lot of split-ended.
I tried a lot of ways to make it better. Buying expensive shampoo & conditioners. But then I got more dandruff I have to change back to old shampoo. Eventually, I dont use conditioner anymore, I start to use hair masks. I washed my hair & shower separately. I only use cold water because hot water is not good for your hair. It took a long time for my hair to look better. Besides shampoo & hair mask, I also use oil, put it directly after shower, when hair still wet. I figured out I dont have to spend more money on those stuffs. For better results, I apply coconut oil (I bought it for 7$ in Costco) on my hair once in a while too.
