I want to share the most recent hair care products that I have been loving. Here’s a bit of info on my hair: I have very long, naturally straight-mildly wavy fine hair that gets oily rather fast. I professionally color my hair about every 6-8 weeks and trim every 12-18 weeks. I wash my hair every other day and do not blow-dry my hair. I’ll sometimes use a straightener to smooth everything out if I’m feeling ambitious in the morning.
BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO It’s been moderately difficult to adjust to an every-other-day shampoo routine, but Batiste dry shampoo has literally saved me from a greasy meltdown on multiple occasions. This stuff is amazing – which is no secret – and costs less than $10. I find mine at TJ Maxx or Marshalls for around $5.99 which is better than Ulta or the drugstores where it costs around $8. Amazon sells it as well, if I’m feeling super lazy… I use Prime 2-day shipping. I buy both the Light & Blonde and Crisp and Clean Fresh scents. The blonde one has a slight tint which does double-duty covering up any regrowth between hair appointments… and I can’t say enough good things about that. Ulta sells a travel-size for $3.99 which I also carry in my purse for a super-911 gross hair emergency. Don’t say it doesn’t happen!
PAUL MITCHELL HOT OFF THE PRESS THERMAL PROTECTION SPRAY This stuff smells incredible and doubles as a light hold hairspray and thermal heat protectant. I get mine at a beauty supply store but it’s also available here for under $20. It’s especially awesome if you want to curl your hair and have fine, long hair like mine. You can spray each section as you go and it helps hold your style in place while allows your hair to remain touchable and soft. Oh, and did I mention the scent?! It’s … delightful.
JOSIE MARAN 100% PURE ARGAN OIL Sure, this product is expensive at $48 for a full size bottle. Could I find another one? Maybe. But it’s so multi-purpose (skin, hair, nails) that it just makes it all ok in the end. I tried it when I found a small size available during the holidays for $5 at Sephora (regularly $14). I’d rather be able to use it to fix any beauty woe than spend more on multiple products. I use this specifically on the ends of my hair after I’ve straightened it to add moisture back or sometimes just to smooth everything out a bit. When I’m done, I just rub the leftovers into my hands and nails. It’s a beautiful thing.
MACADAMIA DEEP HAIR MASQUE This hair masque is expensive but worth the hype. I leave it on my hair while I finish doing all the many things girls are required to do. It leaves my hair soft (but not too soft which is also a thing) and smelling incredible. It’s thick and feels great. Target sells it and often has a promotion for buy 1 get 1 free which is THE TIME to buy. Ulta sells it regularly for $33.
ITS A 10 MIRACLE HAIR MASK I bought this on a whim, while waiting for the Macadamia one to arrive in the mail. This is also amazing and I switch between these two masks on a weekly basis. This mask seems to leave my hair soft but also smooths the cuticle a little more. It’s a little cheaper than the Macadamia masque at under $20 from Amazon.
PAUL MITCHELL PLATINUM BLONDE SHAMPOO I’ve always wanted to try a violet shampoo just to neutralize any brassiness that can sometimes sneak up on us blondes. This one smells like cantaloupe and lilacs (strange but I absolutely love and HUFF it in the shower). I’m not sure if it’s really working as far as removing any brassiness but I know that my blonde is a really nice shade where I am going to thank both my stylist and this shampoo. It’s available for around $15 on Amazon.
PAUL MITCHELL KERACTIVE FOREVER BLONDE CONDITIONER While this conditioner is meant for daily use, it feels more like a deeper conditioner to me which I love. I imagine it’s to combat the damage that most blondes experience and that it’s a “Keractive” product. I love this stuff and will definitely repurchase it. You can find it on Amazon for around $12!
Is there a hair product that you recently found and love? I am forever up to trying new stuff!
