Hair secrets?

I'm surprised my hair looked healthy, I didn't think it was at all XD Hmm...hair secrets..I think it would be the Fekkai product.
I remember last year my hair was dry and prone to breakage and split ends. When I came back from Korea, I bought the Fekkai Protein Rx PM Repair Strengthener $84CAD. I already did a review of this a while ago. I haven't really been consistent in using it because I keep forgetting. I think in the past 3 months or so, I've only used it 2-4 times.
I use about a quarter size and it's definitely helped in strengthening my hair, especially during the dry winter months.

Another thing I do with my hair to try to keep it healthy is use a ton of conditioner. I go through conditioner really quickly, so it's good to stock up at Costco. After I shampoo my hair, I get a big glob of conditioner and fully saturate my hair and leave it there while I shower. I do this every night only because if I do it in the morning, my hair gets flat from the conditioner. I think that's my secret to healthy hair? I'm currently using Pantene, I used to use Herbal Essences but it wasn't moisturizing enough.

A week later and the color has faded a bit, but it's still noticable. Loving the Lunasol Coral Pink at the moment!

This is such a delayed before and after picture of my cheeks with the Clarisonic. I use the brush at night only.

Before, taken March 1. Pores are visible and enlarged with uneven texture.

After taken April 16. Pores a bit smaller and skin smoother. My skin didn't get lighter or anything, I edited the picture a bit to enhance the visibility.
Although it wasn't a huge difference, I found that foundation application is a lot smoother and blends better now. It was worth the investment.

I'm so envious of your hair! It's looking better and better. Surprising that you use Pantene. I had 1 hairdresser tell me bad stuff about it (probably in view of trying to sell me more expensive professional shampoos). I might consider getting the FF Protein Rx now that you've mentioned it helps for dry hair.

your hair looks great millie! :)

i have the clarisonic too and i love it. i bought an extra brush head so my bf could use it too, and he actually gets more compliments on his skin than i do! his hair stylist noticed how much clearer and smoother his face became and asked what he was doing differently!

aww so glad to see that clarisonic is improving your skin's texture. I feel like clarisonic also helped my skin a ton ever since I started using it since last November! Good investment indeed :)

I think I should use more conditioner in the future!
