” A good stylist is cheaper than a good therapist” -Anonymous
My hair is one of my most treasured items. It’s my security blanket and also my blanket when I’m cold. If I talk to it nicely it will also do what I want it to do, but mostly it comes with using the right products…not so much the talking.
BUT. You may have seen, I recently CHOPPED IT ALL OFF! It was time for a change and well, now’s a better time than any!
I’ve rounded up 7 of my tried and true hair care items and while they might not make your magic hair glow when you sing- they will add a serious amount of shine and strength!
OGX Thick + Full plus Biotin and Collagen
Shampoo and Conditioner Magic
I never put much stock into shampoo and conditioner; if it cleaned my hair, great. THEN I started looking into what went into most shampoos and ummm the same ingredients that are in brake cleaner fluid?! How about no. This brand has 100% healthy ingredients that won't harm your hair and I can honestly say I feel the difference! Phillip uses this brand too and loves it; it's actually made his hair thicker too! #win
OGX Dry Shampoo
welcome to your new best friend
Somedays...or many days...there isn't time to wash your hair. We've all been there and thank goodness for dry shampoo. I love this brand and it adds so much volume and freshness to dirty hair. An added bonus; there is a wonderful cooling effect on your scalp too!
Coil Hair Ties
Hair breakage will be a thing of the past!
My hairdresser got me hooked on these guys after I had some insane breakage around the crown of my hair resulting in a strange unicorn-like hair every day. These coils produce thick, volumous ponytails, fluffy buns and don't break your hair (or the bank!)
Conical Curling Wand
Beach Waves or Beach Goddess??
Gone are the days of old school curling irons and here to make hair dreams come true are curling wands! I have used mine for the past 3 years and LOVE IT! No more crimped ends but instead even curls that shine and stay! **I LOVE this curling wand on my long hair but prefer a normal 1" curling iron for my short hair to make easy beach waves!
Climate Protection Hairspray
My best kept secret
FAQ for me: how do you get your curls to stay in the FL heat. Answer: this. You're welcome.
Oaui Leave In Conditioner Spray
aka your other new best friend
Sometimes your hair just gets a little brittle after a lot of curling or top knots; enter this miracle! Spray a bit on the ends and up to about ear height for restored moisture and strength!
Moroccan Treatment Mask
Treat Yo Self
I use this magical jar of goodness every two weeks and it leaves my hair so soft and shiny it's almost unbelievable! Use it instead of a conditioner and leave it in for 5-10 min for seriously soft locks!
