It’s no secret that hair care is essential to having beautiful, luscious locks! Over the years I’ve tried so many hair products! I’m sharing the ones that keep my mane looking beautiful!
Shampoo & Conditioner
Let’s start with the basics! In my opinion, this is the most important step!
My favorite drugstore options are Loreal Total Repair 5 and Dove. I noticed that my hair started looking better and a lot less dry and damaged after using these two shampoos. My current favorite higher end option is Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner (for obvious reasons).
Dandruff: Alternate these shampoos with head and shoulders shampoo. For one wash I’ll use the head and shoulders and the next wash I alternate with a regular shampoo. I find this to be the most effective in getting rid of dandruff. I’ve read a lot online about people having head and shoulders not work for them and I think it’s because they use it everyday instead of alternating it like that.
Washing for your hair type: I have very course, thick hair so I wash my hair every other day or every two days. If I washed it everyday my hair would be very dry. However, I know that people with thinner hair tend to get greasy + oily faster so they may have to wash their hair more frequently.
Volume Tip: SHAMPOO TWICE! I’ve noticed so much more volume after doing this! I also concentrate my conditioner on the middle to the ends of my hair.
Directions: Take a small amount and rub it in (middle to ends). Leave it in for a minute and then wash it out.
Volume Tip: Be careful not to use too much because you don’t want to weigh your hair down and remove volume.
My favorite is MAYO! Nope, not coconut oil – mayo! Read about it here.
A good store bought mask is the L’oreal mask. Just wet your hair, apply, put on a shower cap for 30 minutes, and then wash it out!
I like this oil from Healthy Sexy Hair – it makes my hair look nice and shiny!
I love using this particularly before blow drying or straightening my hair cause it makes it look so healthy!
Directions: Add a small drop to hands and rub it into the middle to end portion of the hair!
Favorite Hair Spray: Aussie – for the sole reason that it smells amazing. It also is not sticky/hardening unless you spray a lot
Working Spray: Haven’t found a favorite yet. I’ve tried the one from Caviar and I’m not in love.
Sleek + Shine Spray: Smooth Sexy Hair Spray. I use it after straightening my hair and it tames the frizz and adds shine
Dry Shampoos: I posted about them here
Hair Perfume: I tried the Pink Sugar Hair Perfume from Sephora but I think it smells too much like cotton candy and doesn’t last long at all.
