Healthy Hair

My hair journey has been just that, a journey.

So often I had my hair as a security blanket, and 4 years of having hair extensions left my hair thin and falling out. It’s been 3 years of intense trail and error in finding what will help my hair grow and this blog post has all of my top favorites!

Now before I give any tips and products I want to say everyone’s hair and everyone’s hair journey is so different and uniquely beautiful. Some of what worked for me may be a miracle worker for you and others may not, I’ve been growing my hair out for over a year and a half now and I am still finding new methods and products that I love. It’s a journey but the more important part of it is realizing and remembering that you are so beautiful regardless your hair, it’s just there to help you express yourself. 🙂 

Here are the steps I took to make my hair healthy again:


  • Switched to scalp centered shampoos and conditioners and rotated them. I found that using multiple different shampoos in a rotation allowed my scalp to not get used to a product and therefore allowed the full effects to really take place. Some of my favorites are:
    • Bondi Boost Hair Growth Range – Saw amazing results in the length of my hair! 
    • Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner – This one makes my scalp feel SO CLEAN AND FRESH after
    • Pureology Hydrate Conditioner and Pureology Hydrate Shampoo – for after a weekend of travel or a big event where I have used a lot of hairspray and my hair needs help
    • Nioxin System 3D Care Kit – A 3 piece kit: shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment. THIS IS AWESOME. Thickens hair and freshens scalp.
    • Function of Beauty – you have the ability to choose EXACTLY what you are looking for. Braziness, Curly Hair, Scalp, Moisture, you name it. 


    • Davines Energizing Seasonal Superactive Scalp Treatment – wow wow wow. I can not say enough good things about this products. After I wash my hair I distribute this product onto my scalp and rub it in. You will feel a little tingle sensation, but even in one month I started to see like one inch hairs all over my head! And now after 4 months of using it, my hair looks and feels so much fuller. If you need hair growth or your scalp needs help – get this!!
    • Bondi Boost Hair Intensive Spray – very similar! Not as “tingly”. 


  • I totally changed my food and vitamins. I started juicing- HUGE FOR MY HEALTH. I found my skin cleared fully, my scalp was no longer dry and hurting, and hair started growing back so much fuller and faster!! Here are some of my favorite supplements:
    • Collagen Powder in my coffee every morning. Just a scoop in my coffee doesn’t alter the flavor! I use this collagen, and I mix it in with this coffee brother that also makes it feel like I am drinking a latte here. It’s also a fantastic gift idea too!
    • Bioton Supplement – Nature’s Bounty – great supplement pill for hair growth


    • I love the occasional coconut oil or castor oil hair masks. These masks bring shine, thickness and moisture back to my scalp and my hair. *Once every two to three weeks.
      • HOW TO: Put the oil at the base of your scalp and massage in for about 10 minutes and let sit on for an hour or for the night! (If sleeping through the night warp towel around your head so the oil doesn’t get on your pillows) In the morning, shampoo about 3 times to fully get all the oil out.

I switched up my hair care products. And to be honest, this was my first time to ever really try hair care products. I use to not feel like they wouldn’t actually do anything, but I was HAPPILY PROVED WRONG! Below are the products I now swear by along with what they changed in my hair:

    • Davines Ol All in One Milk – this leave in product is AMAZING! I use this as a detangling product after I shower and slightly dry my hair with a towel, it smells amazing and has helped the ends of my hair SO MUCH!!!
    •  Mr. Smith Leave In – anther favorite leave in product that I LOVE! I will use this after I shower, before I do my hair, and recently, I have been putting it on the ends of my hair every night before I go to bed just to help my hair out even more. I’ve seen a big difference in the softness of my hair after using this one.
    • Melu Hair Shields – Heat protectant that speaks for itself. Very lightweight, smells amazing, and has helped my hair before I put any heat on it whatsoever. Before I blow-dry, curl it, anything with heat I use this! I love.
    • Function of Beauty Hair Oil – My recent fav that I’ve been using after I shower before I brush out my hair as a detangler! So good for that extra shine!

There is also something to say about taking care of my mental health. A lot of my hair loss was connected to the intense stress I experienced during my year as Miss America, and giving myself grace and time to heal was a factor in my hair growth!

And shablampow! Give yourself some time, give your hair some grace. And remind yourself long locks or short that you are BEYOND BEAUTIFUL and PERFECTLY IMPERFECT.

So much love,
