Before I start listing out some of my current favorite hair products let me give you a little debrief on my hair-
My hair is thick, medium length, and processed with bleach. I’d say my hair is more on the course side mostly because of the bleach, not a lot of shine but a whole lot of volume. When I blow dry it/or air dry it’s half wavy half straight. To me my ends are choppy because of how thick it is, so it doesn’t sway or move around so easily. For example, my hair would never be able to be in a Herbal Essence commercial.
On the reg I…. will shower at night, half blow dry it (bc sleeping on wet hair is cold especially during these chilled months), to which I wake up to a huge crazy mess on my head. So more often then not I run my straightener through it and that’s how I typically style my hair.
SIDE NOTE: If there’s one thing about hair products that’s a must for me is that they HAVE TO SMELL GOOD.
MY FAVORITE HAIR PRODUCTS
1. It’s a 10 Miracle Leave In
I will always spray this in my hair upon getting out of the shower. This has been so incredibly helpful for my ends especially right after I’ve had a hair appointment. It’s repaired my hair/ends every.single.time. I swear this product is the reason why my “should-be” damaged hair isn’t damaged. I spray it in, rub it around, and let it sit in my hair until I’m ready to blow dry.
2. BASTISTE DRY SHAMPOO
Britt got me onto this yeaaaars ago and it still stands as my favorite dry shampoo. Compared to other dry shampoo brands I just feel like the consistency of this one works the best with my thick hair. Not to mention it gives great volume, there’s different scents and shades (from dark to light hair), and it really helps diminish oily roots. I love dry shampoo for the sheer fact that I can go 2-3 days without having to wash my hair…bc if you didn’t already know washing your hair daily dries the heck out of it! The longer you can go without washing it, the better.
3. LIVING PROOF DRY VOLUME
I just received this bottle of dry volume in my Sephora Play Subscription and I’ve already used it a few times so far and loved the results each time. It just does exactly what its meant to do and upholds really well with the thickness and heaviness of my hair. I find a lot of volumizing products will hold for a little while but then slowly fall because my hair is just too heavy. The major test was the day of the wedding; I sprayed this in my hair, danced and sweated my butt off and my hair was still big and great. Total win!
Lastly, this is a new one. Britt raved and raved about this product so much. She was it’s biggest cheerleader and for a while I just brushed it off and didn’t really think twice about it. Until I started complaining to her about my ends being so thick and not really movable. So she pushed for me to use this product and gosh darn it was she right! Not that I ever doubted her hair expertise because she inevitably is my hair, makeup, and drinks guru so I finally bought it
4. Paul Mitchell Sugar Cream
I’ve only used it once so far because I literally just got it delivered on Monday. But the results are highly noticeable. I particularly love this product because like I said my hair and ends are pretty stiff from the coarseness (esp when I straighten my hair) so this helps smooth out the overall texture of my hair so that I can have that Herbal Essence commercials kind of hair 😉 So at this point, after my shower I spray in the It’s A 10 and then rub in a little more than a quarter-size portion of this into my hair. And as Britt described to me “it’s very lightweight” and she’s so right. Love this addition to my hair product family.
