Have you ever got a compliment on something, you didn’t even realize was worth a compliement? Like when you wear those badass pumps walking the streets like your walking the Victoria Secret runway and someone tells you “I love your hair!” Of course you say thank you, your mama raised you right, but you didn’t even realize your hair was even that great. Well this is me! I usually get great feedback on my hair even though as I’ve mentioned here a couple of times… hair isn’t really my thing. I do what I can! But the more people mentioned it, the more I started to realize… I have step up my game from before. Even though I style my hair pretty simple, but I have been really keen on what products I use. What’s actually good and whats worth the extra $$
A few years ago, I was done battling with my damaged hair and decided to get it cut really short (it was to my shoulders… that’s was really short for me). As much as I love long hair, my hair was super damaged from not using the right products. It wasn’t doing much for me. This time I decided, if I wanted to rock those long locks again, I had to figure out what I was doing wrong, how am I damaging my hair and what I can do to prevent it! I did research and asked questions and if you know me, you know I ask a lot of questions. I asked my hair stylist, watch youtube videos and tired different products to figure out what works best for my type of hair. Over the course of two years, I’ve been able to narrow down the best products that not only do its job, rather products that helps in keeping those locks strong and healthy. Today I am sharing my 9 best products to keep those locks healthy!!
This is by far my holy grail! There is no shampoo and conditioner like Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair!! This stuff is magic. Leaves your hair soft, less frizz and smells like heaven. For those like me with damaged, frizzy or even color treated hair, give this bad boy a try. It’s a little on the pricer side… but worth every penny 😉
I’ve mentioned this product before and here I go again! Its a splurge for sure, a product worth the hype. Dyson Supersonic hair dyer cuts your drying time by 1/2, all while keeping your hair healthy! No excessive heat damaged to your hair and helps keep that shine… and we all want that shine baby!
I use to think I was using the right heat protector spray all my adult life, without realizing it was basically useless. While I’m putting products in my hair to prevent heat damaged, the products itself contained so many ingredients like alcohol that will end making my hair dry and frizzy anyways! My current stylist recommend this Loma Nourishing Oil Treatment and girl, I love it! I usually put it on my damp hair before I blow dry it, plus it can be used after for extra shine! Side Note: Only a small amount of needed… trust me, I’ve been there, done that!
What was life before my Wet Brush? Before I will brush my wet hair with a wide comb and for those girls with thick hair, you know this isn’t fun. It felt like an eternity getting those knots out and what about those little knots? The comb will literally go right by the knot, basically doing nothing for me! And for those mamas fighting with your little ones when it comes to brushing their hair, you HAVE to try this out. Lifesaver!!
My husband finds it strange I don’t wash my hair everyday, totally being serious! He thinks it’s gross, but what does he know? There isn’t a better hair day than when your hair is a little dirty and it doesn’t just sit in your head, flat with no life whats so ever! For those days when I don’t wash my hair I love using Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo for dark tones. Prefect for those with dark hair. Doesn’t leave your hair feeling sticky or with a white cast.
Along with my dry shampoo comes dry conditioner! At first I thought this is just a waste of money, because naturally your hair creates oils, but never where you want it? I bought a travel size from my hair stylist and it’s different than what I thought. Dry conditioner does go hand in hand with your dry shampoo. Spray Amika Dry Conditioner to your ends and you will to keep them hydrated without the use of oils and give you a refresh look! Plus, the smell is amazing!!
When I am trying to create a look from day to night and don’t have time to restyle my hair, I go for my Josie Maran Argan Hair Mist. It’s a light mist to bring back that shine without spending time redoing your hair. For those days when you don’t have time to play around with your look, this product is a must have!
Whenever I feel like rocking a blow out, I love applying Living Proof Prefect Hair Day styling treatment first. Helps smooth any frizz, works as a heat protector and give you amazing volume, without weighting your hair down. It leaves your hair straight, bouncy and frizz free! I promise your gonna look like you’re in a shampoo commercial 😉 #getit
