Having healthy hair doesn’t come overnight. You need a hair routine to get your hair to a healthy state. With a hair routine you are about to get your hair in shape! Yes, see it like working out. There needs to be a plan in place in order to achieve the body or healthy weight that you want.

Your hair regimen needs a routine that fits your lifestyle. In this post I will share my routine, so that you can see for yourself how to build your own routine.
Figure out on which day(s) you are going to wash your hair. Having a specific day gives you room to plan your day. For example, my wash days are on Saturdays. Even my friends know how I spend my Saturday mornings.
When it comes to washing your hair I would advise once a week or every other week. If you are someone that washes more than two times a week, I need to tell you, stop doing that. It’s important to have a clean scalp, but too much washing will dry out your scalp.
With every wash it’s necessary to follow up with a deep “moisturizing” conditioner. A deep conditioner will give your hair the nutrients that it needs. I think you already know on which days I deep condition my hair. If you said on Saturday’s, then you guessed it right.
Deep conditioning my hair is my favourite step out of my whole routine. There are some many benefits when it comes to using a conditioner. Will talk about that more in another post.

Moisturize your hair
To keep your hair moisturized in between wash days using a cream or lotion every day, will help fight the dryness. I moisturize my hair every night or every other night before I go to bed. Doing this step in the evening gives the product enough time to work its magic.
Trimming your hair
Hairdressers advise to trim your every 8 – 12 weeks (2 – 3 months) and I agree! We often neglect our dead ends, because we focus to much on having long hair. You need to get rid of the dead ends in order to have the healthy length that you want.
Holding on to a routine, when it comes to trimming your hair, will keep the dead ends away. I’m going to be honest, I have neglected with keeping up with trimming my hair. That’s why I make sure to write down the date when I trim or cut my hair and plan ahead.

Now it’s up to you to create the routine that fits your lifestyle or tweak the routine that you already have. The main goal for your routine is to upkeep your healthy hair care. So don’t stress yourself about it, because you can always adjust the routine.
