Creating a Chill and Easy Hair Care Routine
In Collaboration with Anna from @OrganicallyAnna
Maintaining and keeping up with a consistent routine is simpler than you think. We spoke with Anna, from @Organicallyanna, about how her haircare routine has become a relaxing time that lets her connect with herself and which makes her realize how much she loves taking care of her hair.
Anna has been a vlogger and hair enthusiast since 2013. She has built her social media audience by sharing her personal hair journey. She has over 97k subscribers on Youtube and people around the world trust her insights on hair care.
For more than a year, she has kept a hair care routine that gives her hair exactly what it needs and that is super easy to follow.
“Sticking to a good hair care routine is really the key to achieving your hair goals and also maintaining the progress that you’ve made.”
The first thing you have to do when you are just starting your hair care journey is to identify your hair type. Understanding your hair type and your hair’s porosity level will help you understand what your hair needs and it will be easier to narrow down which hair care products are best for it.

She likes to start her wash days with a hair scalp treatment.
“Host a healthy scalp to grow healthy hair.”
After cleaning her hair with shampoo twice a week, Anna likes to rinse it off and apply a hair mask to keep the ends and lengths healthy so they can be hydrated, nourished, or repaired.
“I use the Balancing Shampoo because it’s really gentle on my scalp and hair and it doesn’t leave it dry.”
The Balancing Shampoo is designed to freshen the scalp while hydrating the ends. Its formula contains organic oils such as eucalyptus and tea tree oil to balance any hair type and to stimulate scalp blood circulation and hair growth. The coconut oil and natural sugars create a creamy texture to cleanse the scalp leaving it feeling nourished and fresh.
Anna’s favorite hair mask from The Hair Routine is the Repair Treatment.
“This is my all-time favorite protein mask. I haven’t found another one that’s better than this, this one is the best one. It does such a good job of leaving my hair feeling nice and strengthened, but without that dry feeling.”
The Repair Treatment restores hair mass with a unique formulation that includes regenerative ingredients such as keratin, oats, corn, wheat, soy proteins, and oat amino acids.
“It gives my hair this nice volume.”
What are the basics of keeping a hair care routine?
Trying to figure out the best hair care routine for yourself is simpler than you think.
“The fun part with following a routine like this is that everyone’s hair is different and everybody needs a personalized routine where they can fit these three elements into hair care.”
All hair types need only three elements to be healthy: water, oil and protein. Applying a hair mask that replenishes the strands with what they actually need is the best way to keep them healthy.
Anna first heard of the chronograma capillar way back when she started her Instagram profile.
“I was following a lot of Brazilian influencers and I noticed their hair is always super healthy.”
This popular hair care method is mainly used in Brazil and Italy and it helps balance between the three main components that hair needs to grow.
“The Hair Routine has made three hair masks -or treatments- that are specifically for this method: a Moisture Treatment, a Nurture Treatment and a Repair Treatment.”
The amount and frequency in which hair needs these three elements varies depending on the hair type and condition. Some hair types need more water because of their porosity levels, while others require more protein when the level of damage is high.
“I find it much easier to just follow my capillary schedule with their app. It considers your porosity, scalp type, and how strong or weak your hair is to determine how much and how often of each treatment you’ll need to use.”
It also considers your goals and habits.
“I set my Hair Routine to remind me every three days which treatment I require.”
