I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my hair recently so I thought now was a good time to let you in on all my hair secrets and favorites. Ok, they’re not really secrets. But there is one product in particular that I’ve been raving about and every time I use it and share on Instagram or YouTube, I get compliments on my hair. Thank you! Let’s break it down into categories so it’s not too overwhelming.
Shampoo & Conditioner
We’re starting with the basics. I switch around a lot with shampoo and conditioner. Who doesn’t? I like high end and drugstore. To me, there’s just something simple that I love about going into a drugstore (Target, Walmart, Grocery Store) and buying a shampoo off the shelf knowing I didn’t pay and arm and a leg for it.
I like to keep things pretty simple with my hair. I don’t use a ton of styling products. They usually just weigh my hair down. So unless it’s actually doing something for my hair, I just don’t mess with it. This product has been a game changer for me though! I started using this last year when I got a sample size in a swag bag at a Blogger Conference. I’ve since bought another travel size and full size. I seriously get compliments on my hair every time I use it. I don’t say it often, but you NEED this one. As for when my hair is wet, I switch off between this Pureology spray that is a heat protectant plus a ton of other things or this one from Aveda that is great for smoothing. Sometimes I’ll add in this root lifter at the crown, but only if I know I’m blow drying my hair that day. This hairspray from Kenra has been my go-to for years. I have a crazy cowlick on the crown of my head and this stuff keeps my hair in place so it doesn’t show. Plus keeps my bangs out of my eyes. I used to switch off between it and a drugstore one. Now I don’t bother and just use it.
I’ve used just about every flat iron and curling iron on the market. You name it, from cheap to higher end. The T3 brand has my heart now. It’s 100% worth the money and you can often find them on sale. I have this curling iron set. I love that you have one base but can change out the size barrel without buying multiple irons. I typically use the 1.5″ barrel. I don’t curl my hair a ton anymore but this seriously makes the curls last longer than ANY other iron hands down. I also use their regular Blow Dryer. They don’t actually make the model I have anymore but I’m sure the current one is just as good. I do use their travel size one and swear by it as well. I’ll link the flat iron I use (again, pricey but worth it) as well as the newest gadget and other must haves below.
