Over the years I have gone through so many changes with my hair. I’ve cut it, dyed it, gone natural, gone back to straight and everything in between so my hair has been through quite a bit. With my hectic schedule sometimes I take short cuts especially when I’m tired from the day to day grind of my career, going to the gym, taking care of my family and all the other little things that life throws my way. Don’t get me wrong I love my life but it can get a bit messy at times. Some mornings I can pull it together and some mornings I wake up like this:
On mornings like this (see above) I blow dry and/or curl my hair with heat appliances. Yes of course this is very bad and yes it can dry out your hair but sometimes it’s just one of those mornings. With that being said I have to make sure that I deep condition my hair weekly and moisturize my hair on a daily basis. Most recently I have been using Moroccan Oil but I’m always willing to try a new product because hey you never know if something better is out there.
I tried Dr. Miracles Follicle Healing Hydrating Oil, this is a part of the new Follicle Healer line. If you haven’t heard, this new line promises a more pleasant scent and more nourishing ingredients. Out of the 4 new products in this line, I would say that this one is my favorite. The ends of my hair can get dry from the heat appliances that I use so I need to use a daily moisturizer to keep them soft and most of all tamed! When I first tried the hydrating oil I noticed that there was an improved scent, it’s definitely less medicinal than before. I liked that the product contains tea tree oil, shea butter, soy protein and jojoba, these ingredients are great for softening hair. The instructions read that the oil should be used daily and massaged into the scalp for 30-60 seconds. It’s believed that regular massage of the scalp helps improve circulation and stimulate hair growth so this is good practice. I used the oil for about a week, massaging my scalp (yes the tingling sensation is still there!) and applying the oil to my ends. My ends are looking much better, they’re not as frizzy and they do not look or feel dry. The best part about the product is that it costs $4.99 for a 2oz bottle with a dropper applicator. This is a very good fit if you’re a budgetnista looking for a moisturizing oil for your hair.
