As a brown girl, I’m a sucker for anything Ayurveda, a form of holistic medicine that focuses on healing through plants, herbs, and taking care of your body and mind. So another hair oil I love is Fable & Mane HoliRoots. This formula uses ingredients like ashwagandha, dashmool, and castor oil to help strengthen your hair and it soothes my scalp.
Briogeo Scalp Revivial Dandruff Relief Charcoal Shampoo
We use exfoliants on our skin to deal with congestion and build up, and that same concept is why exfoliating shampoos help treat your scalp and hair. It wasn’t until I added an exfoliating shampoo into my routine that I began to really feel a difference in my long and wavy, 2B hair. Briogeo Dandruff Relief Shampoo uses AHAs and BHAs to gently exfoliate your scalp and lessen irritation, flaking, and congestion. I’m a firm believer in only washing your hair two to three times a week max, and that’s how often I use this shampoo!
HIF Hydration Support Cleansing Conditioner
As Hijabis, we’re susceptible to dryness — the hijab fabric may reduce moisture levels in the hair — and dry hair leads to weaker hair, which leads to breakage. That is why conditioners are so important. HIF Hydration Support Cleaning Conditioner makes my hair feel like silk. You know a product is good when you squeeze every last bit of it out, and that’s exactly what I did with this!
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
As the final step in my shower routine, I use a deep conditioning hair mask to make sure my hair is moisturised from top to bottom. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask intensely hydrates with rosehip oil, B vitamins, and algae extract. (It’s also a multi-time Allure Readers’ Choice award winner.)
The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA for Scalp and Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density
I like to keep things simple after the shower, and so I opt for hair serums that focus on my hair goals of preventing irritation and breakage. I use The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA for Scalp nightly and it’s done a great job of keeping my scalp hydrated, with no itchiness. The brand’s Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density has made a difference in my hair, especially where it’s become thinner from my hijab.
