As a brown girl, I’m a sucker for everything Ayurveda, a form of holistic medicine that focuses on healing through plants, herbs, and nurturing of the body and mind. Another hair oil I love is Fable & Mane HoliRoots. This formula uses ingredients like ashwagandha, dashmool, and castor oil to strengthen your hair and soothe my scalp.
Briogeo Scalp Revival Anti-Dandruff Activated Charcoal Shampoo
We use exfoliants on our skin to deal with clogs and buildup, and the same concept is why exfoliating shampoos help treat your scalp and hair. It wasn’t until I added an exfoliating shampoo to my routine that I really felt a difference in my long and wavy 2B hair. Briogeo Dandruff Relief Shampoo uses AHAs and BHAs to gently exfoliate your scalp and reduce irritation, flaking and congestion. I’m a firm believer that you should wash your hair a maximum of 2-3 times a week and that’s how often I use this shampoo!
HIF Hydration Support Cleansing Conditioner
As hijabis, we are prone to dryness – the hijab fabric can reduce moisture levels in the hair – and dry hair leads to weaker hair, leading to hair breakage. That’s why conditioners are so important. My hair feels like silk with the HIF Hydration Support Cleaning Conditioner. You know a product is good when you squeeze every last bit of it and that’s exactly what I did with this one!
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Fix! Deep conditioning mask
As the final step in my shower routine, I use a deeply conditioning hair mask to ensure my hair is hydrated from top to bottom. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Fix! Deep Conditioning Mask provides intensive moisture with rosehip oil, B vitamins and algae extract. (It’s also a multi-time Curls 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 a shower, so I opt for hair serums that focus on my hair goals to avoid irritation and breakage. I use The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA for Scalp every night and it has done a great job of keeping my scalp hydrated without itching. The brand’s multi-peptide hair density serum has made a difference in my hair, especially where it has been thinned by my hijab.
