Hello!!!! So today I figured i’ll put up and share my current hair products I am using at the moment. A lot of people have asked me to do one of these kind of post so HERE I AM. Im honestly surprised this is my first hair blog post since I’ve made my blog because as many of you know I’m a hairdresser lol so uhhhh kinda late on this but I’m here now! There is so many amazing products out there and these are just the ones that work for ME. Everyone has different types of hair so not every product will work on EVERYBODY. But I always say it never hurts to try! Honestly tho if anyone ever has questions on what would work best for them and their hair I am always willing to give you my opinion and help, I mean it is what I do for a living lol. I love being a hairdresser and discovering new products and working with all types of hair and using the right product for them. I have my likes and dislikes. For me I have fine hair, its blonde so it gets a little more dry but I do get oily hair. Which isn’t a bad thing because the natural oils you produce on your scalp are actually GOOD for your hair. My biggest advice to give is getting your hair trimmed every 8 weeks or so. Keeping it healthy and helping it grow. If you just keep the dry dead ends of your hair because its “long” you’re not going to see any progress with your hair growth and healthiness. That is the hairdresser talking lol. I hope you enjoy this post and I will see y’all soon!!
Shampoo and Condtioner
Kevin Murphy angle wash, basically my daily shampoo. I try to go 2-3 days without washing my hair, thats my goal but if I have to I will wash it every other day.
Redken purple shampoo, since Im blonde I keep a purple shampoo so my hair doesn’t get as brassy. I will use this once or twice a week. Purple shampoo can make your hair dry so thats why I don’t use it everyday. But this one from redken is by far my favorite one I have used on myself.
As for conditioner Kevin Murphy smooth again, one of my favorites. This helps keep my hair from frizzing as much so it smooths down my cuticle. I only use this on my ends because it can be a little heavy but it makes my hair feel AMAZING.
After shower products
Matrix Biology leave in conditioner – I ALWAYS use a leave in conditioner after I get out of the shower and towel dry my hair. Its perfect for detangling. Leave in conditioner is best used for people who have dry hair.
Kevin murphy young again – This is an oil that I use after the leave in. I focus this mainly on my ends then work whatever I have left on my hand throughout the rest of my hair. This is a heat protecting oil so I always make sure to use this when I decide to use any tools and heat on my hair.
Wet Brush – By far my favorite hair brush. The wet brush is made specifically for after shower detangling. It will not pull or rip any hair and is gentle on the hair. [ TIP: start detangling your hair from the bottom and work your way up to prevent breakage.]
Kevin Murphy Bedroom hair – I have so many texture sprays I love to use and this is one of them. Super light on the hair and gives you a flexible texturized style. Doesn’t leave the hair hard and sticky like most hair sprays do.
Kristin Ess working texture spray – The name itself is what it does exactly. If I don’t feel like using a “hairspray” I will gravitate towards this and it gives me some body and texture to my hair.
Loreal dry shampoo – I have gone through SO MANY dry shampoos and I have yet to find one that actually works for me. Again I have fine thin hair so it gets oily quick and when I don’t feel like washing my hair I use dry shampoo. This one is definitely a staple now because it is the only one that actually works for me.
Dry bar triple sec – This is a new product I have recently discovered. Im loving it so far. Its another texturizing spray so it basically does the same as my other ones but I feel like this one gives me a little EXTRA body to my hair and I love it. Super light weight also.
So I know this technically isn’t a hair product but I wanted to share another tip. I have been taking biotin off and on for awhile now but these past couple months I have sticked to it. I really do notice a difference in my hair, skin and especially my nails when I take this vitamin. Taking your daily vitamins, biotin included are a really good essential for not only your health but your body too, including your hair. Trust me it can make a difference.
90% of the time you see me have curls / waves in my hair. I get a lot of questions asking what I use and this is it! I use a 1 1/4 inch curling iron. I alternate my curls but sometimes I will do them all the same way depending on how I feel honestly. But a little tip if you alternate your curls it gives you more of a beachy wave look. My favorite way to curl hair. Loooove this curling iron and brand.
