I must admit that I don’t put a lot on my head styling wise, but I do have some favorites that I go back to every time I need to restock.
Shampoo – When I was home for the holidays my mom had this shampoo and conditioner set and my hair never felt better, especially when washing it in her well water. The Jason Natural Restorative Biotin Shampoo doesn’t have any fancy smell or cost a lot of money but it really does restore! The conditioner is great too but I have one I like a lot more…
Conditioner – The S-Factor Smoothing Conditioner smells so good and makes my hair feel amazing. I get it in big pump bottles from Marshalls or TJMaxx on the cheap.
Hair Mask – The L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm hair mask is a great deal and really does feel like it erases years of damage from your hair.
Scalp Mask – I’ve perfected my DIY Scalp Mask and like to use it at least once a week to keep the hair coming out of my head nice and strong from the start.
For Bleached Hair – If you get your hair bleached at a salon, I hope they are using the Olaplex system. If you do it at home like I do, then buy it for yourself too. Olaplex no. 3 is the at-home version they can sell you in salons, it’s great to use as a hair mask every so often and the week before a color treatment to get your strands ready. It rebuilds the protein bonds in your hair, scientifically rebuilding the hair shaft. it is truly an incredible product and I would probably be bald without it.
Leave-In Oil – I love to use the L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil on dry hair before walking out the door. I have fine, damaged hair and it never weighs it down or makes it look greasy, but it seals up the split ends so that it looks a lot smoother.
Air Dried Waves – When I want to enhance my natural wave I use the DevaCurl Whip It Good Wave Maker Texture Whip to tame frizz and give volume.
Dry Shampoo – Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Dry Shampoo is my favorite but it’s no longer available, when I’m done with the bottle I plan on trying the Bumble and Bumble Pret a Powder Shampoo to check out the hype!
Heat Protectant – This Suave Keratin Infusion Heat Defense Leave-In Conditioner is a super value option that won’t weigh your hair down and protects before you heat style.
Leave-In with SPF – Don’t forget that the sun can damage your hair just like it does your skin! In the summer I like to use Sun Bum 3 in 1 Leave-In Spray to protect my already fragile hair. Coconut Oil and Argan Oil also have natural SPF in them and are good for the hair! Slather some on at the beach as a hair mask, style and protection.
Alcohol-Free Volumizing Mousse – Anything with alcohol in it is going to be very drying on your hair, that’s why I like this TRESemme 4+4 Styling Mousse, it’s alcohol-free but still nice and foamy which gives me great volume and no sticky feel.
Hair Brush – I know it seems ridiculous to spend this much money on a hairbrush, but the Mason Pearson hairbrush is very gentle and detangles without pulling or tugging. My mom uses these wooden brushes and it’s like getting a scalp massage everytime you brush your hair. Also great if you suffer from static!
