Quality, Integrity, Beauty
My hair has changed since I’ve become a mom. While I still have the same unruly, frizzy/curly hair, it’s a tad bit thinner and I’ve noticed the occasional gray hair that pops up announced in a very dramatic way. It’s gray hairs that like to show off and pop out in the complete wrong direction of my other hair, which makes it all the more fun and obvious to see. Luckily, I have a dear friend who has been my hair stylist for over seven years and she helps me on the hair highlights and cuts on a regular basis and gives me awesome tips to keep my hair as un-damaged as possible.
I have a love/hate relationship with my ceramic straightening iron that I use almost daily to fry flat my hair. While I have been more accepting of my hair’s natural curl, it’s not a cute and friendly curl, it is quite frizzy especially during Austin’s humid summer heat. Growing up in the humid mid-Ohio valley, it’s like I’ve picked locations to live that are the exact opposite from what my hair craves. One tip that my friend has given me and that I do is to do a monthly hot oil treatment on my hair to add shine, prevent hair loss, and protect my hair from the sun and my own heat damage that I subject to my locks. While straightening my hair is not au natural, I at least like to use products that do not have harsh chemicals whenever possible and I really like Wick’s Beauty products, especially their Phoenix hot oil treatment.
Wick’s Beauty Hot Hair Oil Treatment only has five ingredients and while I’ve tried to make it on my own, I just haven’t done it as successfully! The mixture has a perfect balance of olive oil, castor oil, coconut oil, Vitamin E, and Lemongrass Oil that gives me great results to where my hair looks shiny and doesn’t feel greasy. I’ve used hot oil treatments in the past where I’ve placed the container in very hot tap water, but Wick’s Beauty directions to heat the oil in a mug in a shallow pan of hot water until simmering actually seems to make the oil work better for my hair. I concentrate the oil mostly on the ends of my hair and use very little on the roots for a full 20 minutes before I wash and rinse and it only takes a tablespoon for my entire head of hair which is medium length. The 16 oz. (roughly 32 tablespoons) bottle is only $19.99, so you get a lot of oil treatments for very little money. You can also purchase a bottle in an 8 oz. container for just $11.99 from their website, too. It’s a great way to keep your hair looking great and in shape and the lovely lemongrass oil adds a fantastic smell that is like the icing on the cake. If there is one thing that I’m picky about, it’s my hair, and Wick’s Beauty has become a simple monthly routine that keeps my frizzy hair at bay. Now if it could only work wonders at keeping the grays away, I’d say the product would be just about perfect! Ha. Definitely give it a try and I highly recommend!
Wick’s Beauty Hot Hair Oil Treatment Directions: To warm the oil, put a couple tablespoons (more or less depending on the length of your hair) in a mug and put the mug in a shallow pan of water on the stove. Heat until water is simmering. Test the oil carefully (it can get VERY hot). When it is warm but not too hot, massage through clean, damp hair. Leave on for 20 minutes and then wash and rinse thoroughly. Style as usual.
