My Hair Care Routine

I used to see blog posts about hair care routines and was shocked people had a routine for their hair… here I was 5 years ago, washing my hair every damn day. Yeah, that was my routine…I guess? Also might I add… I’m pretty sure I was using some cheap $10 shampoo + conditioner I found in the aisle of Target. I also probably chose it because it spelt good? Who knows…

Anyways, 5 years ago, I also decided to dye my hair for the first time and my hair dresser gasped when I told her what I was using to shampoo and condition my hair (at the time). So, to avoid stripping my hair color, she introduced me to my first $70 bottle of shampoo…. That’s when I gasped.

$70 for shampoo??!

There are sooo many things I’ve learned about my hair since.

  1. Don’t wash your hair everyday
  2. Your hair dresser might be making $$ off of selling you that expensive shampoo and conditioner
  3. What products are actually healthy for your hair
  4. How to keep your hair healthy while dying and putting heat on your hair
  5. A hair care routine is essential

A hair care routine is essential because it will not only keep your hair healthy, but also will save you so much time.

So here it is: my hair care routine

Do this 1x a week:

  1. EXFOLIATE & SCRUB: with the Oaui Scalp and Body Scrub

-Sugar: Unclogs and gently exfoliates and conditions while increasing microcirculation.

-Probiotic Blend: Supports your scalp and skin’s microbiome’s natural defenses.  

-Coconut Oil: Rich in fatty acids that nourish and moisturize the skin, scalp, and hair.

I use this product to really exfoliate my scalp. It’s important to exfoliate your scalp once a week to prevent product build up, helps with dandruff and it keeps oil under control.

2. DETOX SHAMPOO: with the Ouai Detox Shampoo

A clarifying shampoo that deeply cleanses away dirt, oil, and product buildup with apple cider vinegar while keratin helps strengthen hair.

3. TREATMENT MASQUE: with the Ouai Deep Conditioner

A mask that restores hydration, repairs damage, and adds shine to thick hair with almond, macadamia, and olive oils, shea and illipe butters, and hydrolyzed keratin.


I shampoo and condition every 3-4 days with Ouai’s shampoo and conditioner.

Usually every time I wash my hair, I first use this heat protectant spray and then my Dyson Airwrap Brush tool to quickly blow dry my hair. It’s a fast and easy way to style my hair. It also stays styled for a couple of days. It’s important that I do this after I wash my hair because my hair is never recoverable after air drying or sleeping on it when wet.

In summary, I wash my hair twice a week (once to deep clean and another time with regular shampoo) and style it twice a week. Not washing my hair and putting heat on it every day has really helped keep my hair so healthy!


I hope this routine helps you keep your hair strong and healthy!
