I made an FAQ video for all the hair questions I get! If you've ever asked about my hair and didn't get an answer (sorry!), this should cover everything!
Here's the video if you like that sort of thing! It's long, but there are clickable things and timestamps so you can jump to any question without having to sit through all of it.
Here's a short version of what I answer in the video, I recommend the video though because it's much more detailed:
What's your natural hair color? Red!
What do you dye your hair with now? Ion Color Brilliance Brights in Red *EDIT: As of June 2015, Ion is now making the bright orange again! I now use a combination of both red and orange to add warmth back so it's not quite so red-violet.
Do you still henna your hair? Nope, but it impacts how the Ion color looks on my hair now.
How do you get/keep volume with your length? I don't wash it very often if I can help it, and my bangs that are growing out help with volume around my face.
How often/with what do you wash it? I wash it once my scalp gets flaky or once I've forgotten the last time I shampooed, probably once every 7-10 days... maybe longer.
How do you detangle? Brush with a soft brush only before showering, from tips to roots, comb after letting conditioner soak in the shower.
What products do you use to style? I don't use any hair products! I just use either coconut or avocado oil on the tips and a little throughout.
Do you use leave-ins or masks? Nope, just the oils, but not as a leave-in treatment or mask.
How do you style your hair? I put a bit of oil in it, then DON'T TOUCH IT. I never brush or comb my hair until I'm about to get in the shower or IN the shower. So I guess I don't really style it!
Any tips for growing long and healthy hair? Try not to heat style it, and make sure you're eating good, nutrient dense food! When I was struggling with disordered eating, it wrecked my hair. Food has impacted my hair tons. I eat a pretty healthy diet now, full of lots of good fats, vegetables, no gluten, etc. It has done WONDERS for my hair!
One question I forgot to answer is how fast the red fades/how I keep it lasting. Since my hair is red/hennaed underneath, the red seems to stick around a lot longer on me! It DOES fade quite quickly, but I have the help from henna to keep it somewhat vibrant.
Let me know if I missed anything or if you have any other questions!
