As a hairdresser, I deal with hair literally all day. Anyone who does, or has done hair professionally will tell you that product is just as important as the combs, brushes and shears we use to give our guests their desired look. So today I wanted to talk about my favorite hair products. Full disclosure: I was trained at the Aveda Institute, so naturally, most of these are going to be Aveda products. That being said, I fully endorse and love them, and really believe they work.
Brilliant Damage Control
Such a great detangler for even the most broken, knotted hair. I always, always use this, whenever my hair gets wet. It not only helps with the tangles, it protects the hair from heat styling,which is a major bonus. It contains natural ingredients such as aloe, which helps moisturize dry hair. I especially love that it is so lightweight, and doesn’t make my hair feel greasy. Also, it smells amazing. Pro tip: Take this with you to the pool-it has a UV protectant and will prevent chlorine tangles.
Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair
This leave-in conditioner works absolute wonders on super dry/damaged hair. Seriously, if you have crispy hair, give this a try and see some magic. I use it whenever I feel like my hair is starting to get extra dry, or I have a lot of split ends. It gives me a little bit of extra time in between haircuts, I swear. It not only moisturizes, the quinoa protein in it helps rebuild damaged hair cuticles. It is also a heat protectant and detangler. Absolutely necessary in my hair kit!
Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme
THIS IS MY FAVORITE HAIR PRODUCT EVER BAR NONE. In the Florida heat & humidity it is necessary to find something that will not only smooth hair, but keep it from frizzing back up. This product does that, and the best part? You don’t have to blow dry it in. I love that I can use the same product to rock my natural wave or work a sleek, straight look. But what’s more is that it makes my hair feel so soft. I’m seriously obsessed with this styling creme.
Light Elements Smoothing Fluid
You know how everyone is so obsessed with Argan/Moroccan oil? This is the same concept, except that it’s way more lightweight, and works to moisturize the hair, instead of just coating it. This product adds shine, while taming those annoying frizzies. I love using it on straight hair, but it also tames the frizziness of my natural waves. A little goes a long way though, so err on the side of light handed!
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo
I love me some dry shampoo. I like to wash my hair as little as possible, while not looking like a ragamuffin. I break this out around day 3, and poof! It’s like I have fresh hair. It does a great job of de-greasing my hair, while adding texture & volume. I love it because it doesn’t make my hair feel chalky, or leave huge white patches either. I’ve tried many dry shampoos, but this one takes the cake!
There you have it, my top 5 hair products. Now take these with a grain of salt, they work well for me and my hair type. Not all hair is the same, and I truly believe you have to find what works for you. Let me know what your favorite hair products are, or if there are any I should try!
