ULTIMATE HYDRATING HAIR CARE ROUTINE | fall edition

Do you feel like your hair is dry no matter how many masks you put on? Is it super rough like mine used to be? Or maybe you just need some extra hydration? Welcome to my ultimate hydrating hair care routine in which I introduce you the best products and tips for hair with dry ends that I found by now.


I have been struggling with dry and damaged ends for my whole life. I have a lot of hair with rough and dry lower part and ends and normal scalp, even tough I rarely use heat on it. I finally set up the routine with the most amazing products I found by now and I love it. (P.S. there’s a lot of useful tips in the text).

Moja kosa sa suhim i ostecenim vrhovima i ja muku mucimo moj cijeli zivot. Imam jako puno kose koja je dosta ostra i suha u donjem dijelu, dok je tjeme skroz normalno, iako rijetko koristim peglu ili figaro. Napokon sam uspostavila rutinu s dosad najboljim proizvodima koje sam ikad probala i kosa mi se oporavila u nekoliko tjedana. (P.S. u tekstu ima puno korisnih savjeta)

1. WASHING 

I wash my hair every third day in average and that helped a lot. My advice is always to wash your hair twice to three times a week (unless you feel like there is no way to let it stay for more than a day or two). First two days I wear my hair down and then the third day it’s always up. The days when I go to the gym are an exception. 

Kosu perem svaki treci dan u projesku i to definitivno pomaze. Moj savjet je da se kosa pere dva do tri puta tjedno (osim ako bas nikako ne mozete izdrzati). Prva dva dana kosu nosim raspustenu, a treci dan je uvijek u repu ili pundji. Dani kad sam u teretani su iznimka.

SHAMPOO | OGX HYDRATING MACADAMIA OIL SHAMPOO

This shampoo is by far one of the best I’ve ever used. I initially wanted the Coconut one but ended up buying this one and it makes a huge difference. The oils inside of the shampoo don’t make the scalp oily but they definitely hydrate the dry parts. I wash my hair twice with the shampoo – the first time the dirtiness goes away, the second time shampoo penetrates into the hair.

Ovaj sampon je bez premca najbolji koji sam dosad probala. Prvotno sam htjela uzeti OGX od kokosa (ima ih u Kozmu), ali sam zavrsila s ovim u kosarici i odlican je. Ulja u samponu ne maste tjeme, ali odlicno hidratiziraju suhe dijelove. Uvijek kosu perem samponom dva puta – prvi put da skine prljavstinu, a drugi put da ima direktno djelovanje na cistu kosu.

MASK | MARIA NILA TRUE SOFT MASQUE 

This is the most recent product I got for my bday (thanks girls!). Maria Nila is a Swedish brand that makes vegan hair products of a super high quality and with lots of amazing ingredients (this one has argan oil). The mask goes on the hair between the shampoo and the conditioner and it nourishes the hair so beautifully. I leave it in the hair for 5 to 10 minutes once to twice a week and the softness is out of this world.

Ovo je zadnji proizvod koji sam ubacila u ovu rutinu. Maria Nila je svedski brend koji nudi veganske proizvode za kosu koji su vrhunske kvalitete s divnim sastojcima (ova maska sadrzi ulje argana). Maska se nanosi nakon sampona, a prije regeneratora i jednostavno savrseno hrani kosu. Ja je ostavljam na kosi 5 do 10 minuta jednom do dva puta tjedno, mekoca je nevjerojatna.

CONDITIONER | DOVE NOURISHING OIL CARE

Never skip this part :) This is my second Dove conditioner and I just think they are very good for a constant use, very light but the silkiness is guaranteed. I recommend applying it on the lower part of the hair and ends, leaving it for 30 second and rinsing it firstly with warm and them quickly with cooler water for cuticles to close (it makes the hair more shiny and smooth).

Ne preskacite ovaj dio :) Ovo je moj drugi Dove regenerator i smatram da su zbilja odlicni za kontinuirano koristenje, jako lagani, a mekoca je garantirana. Preporucam da ga nanesete na donji dio kose i vrhove, ostavite 30 sekundi i isperite prvo toplom, a onda brzinski hladnom vodom da se kutikule zatvore (kosa ce biti sjajnija i glatka).

2. AFTER CARE

Hair needs attention between washings too to keep it hydrated and nourished. Protecting it from the heat and applying “leave-in” products (especially during the cold months) is something your hair will be thankful for.

Kosa treba paznju i izmedu pranja kako bi ostala hidratizirana i nahranjena. Zastita od visokih temperatura i nanosenje proizvoda koji se ne ispiru (posebno tijekom hladnijih mjeseci) su koraci na kojima ce kosa biti zahvalna.

HEAT PROTECTION | MARIA NILA CREAM SPRAY

As I said, your hair will love Maria Nila! I tried many heat protection sprays but I find that this really protects 100%. Not only that I use it when I straighten or curl my hair (which is maybe few times a months) but also every time before I dry my hair. I truly try to leave my hair to dry naturally but it is a bit difficult during the fall and winter. One extra tip – use it in the summer before you go out to protect your hair from the sun heat.

Kao sto sam rekla, kosa voli Mariu Nilu! Isprobala sam puno proizvoda za zastitu od visokih temperatura, ali za ovaj imam osjecaj da stiti 100%. Ne samo da ga koristim prije peglanja ili kovrcanja (nekoliko puta mjesecno) nego i svaki put prije susenja fenom. Zaista se trudim kosu pustiti da se susi prirodno, ali tijekom jeseni i zime nije lako. Jos jedan savjet – koristite ovaj tip proizvoda u ljeti prije odlaska na jako sunce da vam se kosa ne isusi.

LEAVE-IN | MACADAMIA OIL TREATMENT

My queen of all the oils! Who knows me, knows that I’ve been faithful to this product for at least 3 years now and I pray that they never discontinue this line. It is just the best and it 100% solves the damage. One small bottle of Macadamia Oil lasts for 3-4 months, I apply it after drying the hair but I make sure the ends are still a bit wet because it soaks in way better. Make sure you brush out your hair to spread it evenly.

Moja kraljica ulja! Tko me zna, zna da sam ovom malom cudu vjerna minimalno 3 godine i molim se da nikad ne prestanu s ovom linijom. Jednostavno je najbolja i apsolutno rjesava ostecenu kosu. Jedna manja bocica traje 3 do 4 mjeseca, a nanosim je na polumokre vrhove nakon susenja jer se bolje upije. Obavezno iscesljajte kosu da se fino ravnomjerno rasporedi.

3. WEEKLY TREATMENT

ONCE A WEEK | COCONUT OIL MASK (or alternations)

Coconut oil is amazing for your hair because of the beneficial acids that it contains. Make sure to buy cold pressed virgin coconut oil (you can choose with or without scent) and keep it on a room temperature. Apply it once a week the night before (and sleep with it) or 3-4 hours before you will wash your hair – cover whole hair, wrap it up in a bun. It will all go away with shampooing. You can also mix it with one egg and a spoon of olive oil, it’s even better!

Kokosovo ulje je dusu dalo za kosu jer je puno kiselina koje popravljaju i najgora ostecenja. Pazite da kupujete hladno presano djevicansko ulje (bez ili s mirisom) i drzite ga na sobnoj temperaturi. Nanosite jednom tjedno prije spavanja (i prespavajte) ili 3-4 sata prije pranja – na cijelu kosu i zamotajte u pundu. Ulje ce se isprati tijekom samponiranja. Mozete umiksati i jedno jaje i zlicu maslinovog ulja, jos bolje!

4. TOOLS

The tools you use definitely help (or don’t) your hair. Rough brushes can break your hair and just damage it even more. I recommend using the plastic brushes with wide combs such as this Macadamia Oil brush that I have for years now (or similar like Tangle Teezer). Invest in a good brush (this one was around 20 Euros), you will be happy. This kind of the brush doesn’t break your hair and it is super safe for wet hair plus very easy to clean. If you use a lot of hot tools like curlers and irons, invest in a good ceramic ones like Remington or BaByliss. A good hairdryer is also a big factor.

Alati koje koristite za oblikovanje kose mogu apsolutno pomoci ili odmoci kosi. Grube cetke lome kosu. Pokusajte koristiti plasticne cetke s rijetkim zubcima kao ova Macadamia oil cetka koju ja koristim godinama (ili slicne cetke kao Tangle Teezer). Investirajte u dobru cetku (ova je oko 150 kuna), bit cete sretni. Taj tip ne lomi kosu, siguran je za cesljanje mokre kose i lako se cisti. Ako cesto koristite peglu ili figaro, investirajte u dobre keramicke alate kao Remington ili Babyliss. Dobar fen za kosu je takodjer faktor koji doprinosi.

  4. Great post! I had super dry hair for over 10 years. Then I finally had a blood test done and it came back that I was super anemic. Started taking iron pills and my hair and skin aren’t dry like they used to be.

    So, make sure there isn’t a medical thing happening :-)

    1. That’s crazy how it can influence it! I am not anemic but there is probably a lot of people who are and have no idea! :) great advice!! Xo
