Hair Hair Hair



This post is about some of my favorite hair products. I'll start off with some of my "hair history" haha. I've gone through experimental times with my hair... mostly in high school. I bleached it and chopped it off, I even had it this super weird orange color. Ya... that definitely wasn't my best look ;) I had really short hair my junior and senior year of high school, and I loved it. But a couple years ago I was just ready to have long hair again. So, I've just let it grow these last 2 years. I've kept it relatively close to my natural color, making it slightly lighter or darker here and there. But nothing drastic. I debate cutting it every now and then but it just hasn't stuck yet. The funny thing is, I cut about 4 inches off the day before my wedding but I honestly still haven't noticed it's gone. As for now, I like how it is. I'm definitely not a hair expert, but I'll share some products I've been using on my hair that have helped me keep it long and strong :)

1. IT'S A 10 SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER: I love this shampoo and conditioner. It's lightweight so it doesn't weigh your hair down and leaves it feeling so soft when I get out of the shower. I used to wash my hair every single day but using the products it doesn't feel thick and gross. So, I usually wash my hair every other day and rotate with #1 & #2 when I do wash.

2. LOREAL EVER PURE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER: Like I said above, I rotate with IT'S A 10 so I really only use this shampoo 1/2 times a week. But I love the fresh scent and how clean it makes my scalp feel. I just started using these sulfate free shampoos a few years ago and it took me a while to get used to because they don't foam up like others. But it's totally worth the switch, my hair became so much healthier!

3. BATISTE: This is hands down the best dry shampoo I've ever used. Especially for dark hair, most dry shampoos have a white color but this comes out dark brown so I never have to worry if I didn't totally blend it in. Also it smells yummy ;)

4. PAUL MITCHELL SUPER SKINNY SERUM & IT'S A 10 MIRACLE LEAVE-IN PLUS: I use both of these as a heat protectant. I used to be awful about using heat on my hair (like every day- blowdryer & a hot tool). I'm much better now, but both of these products have helped restore my split ends.

5. MOROCCAN OIL MEDIUM HAIR SPRAY: The only products I use in my hair other than shampoo and conditioner are those heat protectants and this finishing spray. The only time I use it is if I'm curling my hair and want it to hold longer than normal. Even then, I hardly use any. But it's great for a finished and stronger look without looking stiff.

I get all these hair from ULTA. I love feedback so let me know what you think, and I'd love to know what your favorite hair products are! :)
