I have gotten manyyy questions over the years of what I use on my hair, and I thought that this post might be helpful to those of you who are looking for products to help keep your hair healthy and manageable. Personally, I love talking about anything beauty product related (especially hair), so feel free to leave me a comment below of your favorite products as well! I’m sharing absolutely every product I use in my hair from hair masks to dry shampoo, and I’ll try to keep it short lol!
To start, a little bit about my hair: I have very thick, sort of coarse hair. I do highlight my hair, so that adds to the dryness. I tend to gravitate towards products that add moisture back into my hair. So, if your hair is more on the oily side, some of these products may not be the best for you.
Shampoo: I have used this shampoo for years. I love to buy the huge bottle from Ulta, and it lasts me months and months. I like that it is still moisturizing, as some shampoos in the past have left my hair incredibly dull.
Purple Shampoo: This of course is for blondes, to neutralize brassy tones. If you’re looking for something extreme that’s going to give you a super cool-toned effect, maybe try leaving this product in a bit longer. Personally, I just like to have a more neutral tone, so I leave it in for the normal amount of time. I have used other purple shampoos in the past that were pretty harsh on my hair. This one is perfect, and I have been through multiple bottles of it.
Hair Mask: My FAVORITE type of hair product. I do not use regular conditioners ever–only hair masks. This has certainly been my go to hair mask for years (and I have tried a lot). It gives my hair back so much life and shine. My other go to’s are by It’s a Ten and Nexxus (I switch off and use these every so often.)
Leave-in Product: (For all hair types!!!) I can thank my hair dresser for this one. When I first started coming to her 10 years ago, my hair was a hot mess–I was that 14 year old girl who experimented and abused my hair (why was I so obsessed with flat irons???). She suggested this product to me, and I’ve used it ever since. I put this in my damp hair every time I wash it. I have gotten every single one of my friends to use this as well.
Heat Protectant: This is my newest product that I have added to my must haves, and omggg where has this been all my life?? Thank you Birch Box for sending this to me! I am for sure purchasing the full size. I never thought I could blow out my own hair until using this. It makes your hair sooooo smooth, and no frizz at all. Plus, it protects from the heat!!!
Argan Oil: I love this line of pure oils from Ulta! This is pure organ oil–nothing added. I put it on my ends day to day if I need added moisture (especially in colder months coming up).
Pure Coconut Oil: The one product from this list that you can also cook with lol. I put this in my dry hair right BEFORE washing it. Do not put this in your hair as a leave-in product. You will totally be a grease ball. This helps keep the moisture in my hair balanced before going in with regular shampoo + purple shampoo. You can buy this at the grocery store of course, or TJ Maxx!
Dry Shampoo: I don’t like washing my hair more than I need to, so anything that will prolong my hair style is good for me. I’ve tried many dry shampoos, and this one is the best for the price. I buy mine at TJ Maxx (cheaper than Ulta.)
Batiste Dry Shampoo (This size is only $8.99 at TJ Maxx)
I do not have a hair spray/texture spray that I swear by. I don’t use hair spray often, so I’d love to hear your favorites on that!
