Happy Thursday, friends!
I had originally planned for this to post yesterday, however, after two late nights of baseball, I just didn’t get it finished. Baseball season is my favorite time of year! It’s also the most chaotic! Ha!
Today, I am sharing some of my favorite hair care products!
I buy all of these on Amazon and will link them for you.
First, let’s talk shampoo & conditioner!
THIS Matrix Total Results Mega Sleek shampoo and conditioner is my favorite! It leaves your hair so incredibly shiny! I have really fine hair which tangles a lot. When I say a lot, I mean it looks like a rat’s nest on top of my head after I towel dry! The Mega Sleek shampoo and conditioner makes my hair much more manageable! Not near as many tangles! And it feels SO soft!
After I towel dry my hair, I spray the It’s a 10 leave-in conditioner in my hair. It doesn’t take much - about 4 quick sprays. This helps with tangles as well and also helps keep my hair from getting static. I spray it on my wet hair and then use a large toothed comb to “pick through” my hair. Again, baby fine hair = tangles. No brushes while wet! I have used the It’s a 10 for years and LOVE it! I even have the smaller size for when I travel. If you aren’t sure about this one for you, buy the travel size to try first!
Aquage Sea Salt Texturizing Spray is what I use to give a little body to my hair. It doesn’t take much of this - I usually spray once on each side and once in the back and I’m done. If I am wearing my hair natural curly/wavy, I will use a little more of this for that beach wave look.
Last, I use Lanza Healing Strength Neem Plant Silk Serum on my hair. It only takes one pump for my shoulder length hair. My daughter, Alyssa, has long, thick, natural curly hair and loves this serum too! I use it more concentrated on my ends to protect them from breakage and to make them smooth. However, I use a tiny bit all over. It leaves my hair smooth, silky, and shiny and just healthy looking! It’s more on the pricey side but one bottle lasts me about 4-5 months.
Next, I use my Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer to blow dry my hair straight. I have already shared this product several times and every time I share it, I have at least 5 friends order one! It has amazing reviews and I couldn’t love it more! Seriously, this may be my favorite purchase this year. It is so far! You section off your hair like you would to blow it dry, and then run the dryer through it. I use the low heat setting and then finish with the cool setting. It does have a higher heat setting for thicker hair. It takes me less than 10 minutes and my hair is completely dry AND straight! It’s like using a round brush when blow drying. The best part is that once it’s dry, I’m finished! No need for a straightener and additional heat/damage to my hair. Grab you one HERE. Thank me later! 😉
A friend recommended this Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast to me about a year ago. She kept raving about how much volume it gave her hair and she was RIGHT! This stuff is legit! I use it on my hair mostly on clean hair days. After I blow dry, I use it under the roots to give it a boost. My hair can sometimes be too clean if you know what I mean. Therefore, with it being baby fine it just kinda lays flat on top of my head. This Volume Blast gives it great lift! I spray a little under the roots on each side and at the back (usually just 3 sprays) and let it sit for a minute. Then I use my hands and run it through to smooth it out. Sometimes I will lightly run a brush over the top as well.
On my day 2, day 3, day 4 hair, I use THIS dry shampoo. I really like the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Dry Shampoo and it is at a GREAT price point! Much less expensive option for dry shampoos at $8 for TWO bottles! You just spray on your roots, wait a couple minutes, and then rub it in good. It soaks up the oil, gives your hair a little boost of volume, and smells SO GOOD! Hello, toasted coconut!
When it’s almost time to touch up my gray roots, I use this Batiste Dry Shampoo for brunettes. It goes on with a brown color that covers your grays! You get away without washing your hair another day AND it covers your gray. That’s a WIN WIN in my book!
And THIS is the root touch up I use if you need one! Super easy to use, I leave on 20 minutes, rinse, and done! It lasts me about six weeks and is less than $6 a box!
Those are my favorite hair products! Let me know if you have any recommendations I should try!
See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites!
