Hair Care

With the new blog look, I’ve decided I’m going to do more beauty posts, hair and makeup related. So like I did with my first makeup post, my first post is about the products I use regularly on my hair. Afterall, those are important to how your hair looks, right? So the first products I use, obviously, shampoo and conditioner. I wash my hair every 2-3 days because it doesn’t get oily very quickly, and if it does, that’s where the dry shampoo comes in.

Now shampoo and conditioner is the one thing I probably change most often. I finish one and then a different one catches my eye so I change. But for now, I’ve been using this TRESemme Shampoo and Conditioner and loving it!

I keep my hair in a towel for about 30 minutes before I move on to putting products in my hair, just so it’s not completely soaked.

I’m not sure it matters the order, but I’m a creature of habit and always put these next four products in my hair the same order every time.9

  1. TRESemme Keratin Smooth Spray (also love the CHI Keratin Spray)
  2. CHI Silk Infusion*
  3. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum*
  4. Not Your Mother’s Beat the Heat Thermal styling spray (also love the CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection spray)

*These are two products I never really change, the other two, I’ll switch occasionally to try something new.

My hair actually doesn’t tangle very easily but I use the Wet Brush, to brush through after all the products are in. I usually wait for my hair to mostly dry on its own before blow drying it the rest of the way. If I plan on curling it, I’ll blow dry it straight with a round brush using my TRESemme Blow Dryer. (My mom has this blow dryer and I love it so much! Dries your hair super fast and smooth/flat.) For some reason if I use straighten my hair with a flat iron, and then try to curl it, the curl won’t 12hold. Sometimes I’ll use my Remington flat iron to curl my hair, if I want actual curls. But I’ll use a curling iron to get more wave in my hair. Also, I always do my hair at night. I like to sleep on the curls so they aren’t as perfect and look a little more undone. Sometimes I will touch up the pieces around my face if they become too flat. My favorite curling iron (which unfortunately broke recently 😦 ) is Hot Tools 1″ Gold Curling Iron.

(I’ve been planning to do a “tutorial” post of sorts on here for how I curl my hair with the straightener and how I get waves with the curling iron. It’s pretty simple and I just learning from youtube or pinterest, so for know I’ll just link those: flat iron curls & curling iron waves.)

8I don’t really use hairspray because I don’t care if my curls fall out and get loose, but occasionally I will use a texture spray. The Nuance Salma Hayek texture enhancing spray, smells so good. Although while making the post and looking for a link, I’m pretty sure it’s been discontinued because I can’t find it anywhere. 😥  So I guess I’ll be keeping an eye out for a new texture spray. #bummer

Other favorite hair things:

  • Dove Dry Shampoo (honestly, some days I just use baby powder instead because it works just as good as dry shampoo but feels better.)
  • MetaGrip bobby pins: these are the best bobby pins, they stay in because of the grip at the end and they stay tight and secure.
  • Clear Elastics: I use these for braids, I actually prefer the black ones over the clear because for some reason they stretch better and easier.
  • Duckbill clips & Croc Clips: use either of these to section my hair when I’m blow drying, curling, or straightening.
  • Ponytail holders
  • Claw clips
