Good Afternoon, Everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far. Today, I wanted to do a post about my essential hair products.
I have a simple philosophy concerning products: less is more, and have a simple skin, makeup and hair routine is more beneficial then hoarding hundreds of products.
For me, I like to have a select few products that I believe keep my hair healthy and maintained.
Shampoo: Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Fortifying Shampoo. This product is by far my favorite shampoo that I have used recently. For the last two years, I have been obsessed with hair products from Herbal Essences, but I decided for the summertime that I should change up my hair routine. I love the smell of this shampoo because it smells like a fruit smoothie that you’re washing your hair with. It’s amazing!
Disclaimer: I don’t wash my hair with smoothies, so don’t worry everyone: I’m still sane.
Conditioner: Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Fortifying Conditioner. With this product, I only apply the conditioner to the ends of my hair, not my scalp. My hair is dry at the ends, but more greasy at my roots. So, I find it’s easier to maintain if I only apply conditioner to the ends of my hair. The conditioner leaves my hair feeling soft and hydrated for the day.
The combination of this shampoo and conditioner together feels revitalizing on my scalp when I wash my hair in the morning. And, the smell lingers throughout the day, which is great because I constantly ask which hair products I use, and everyone comments on how my hair smells.
Leave-in conditioner: I have been loving the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-in Conditioning Cream (Wow, that was a mouth full.) I love this product because I don’t need to apply it everyday to notice the effects of the product. So, I apply the leave-in conditioner every three days, and it will still show incredible shine in my hair on the days that I don’t apply it to my hair. My suggestion for this product it to only apply a dime-sized portion of it and evenly distribute it throughout your hair. Trust me guys, a little goes a long way with this product. And, if you apply too much, you might find that your hair will be greasy, and that’s just not good.
Mousse: Herbal Essence Set me up Mousse. I have been buying this mousse product from Herbal Essence for about two years, and I don’t ever want to change the mousse I use. I love the smell of this product because it isn’t overwhelming unlike other mousse products tend to be. Also, it truly holds the curl in my hair throughout the day when I leave my hair natural. And, finally, it doesn’t make my hair frizzy: definitely a bonus. On the days that I don’t want to put heat to my hair, I’ll towel dry my hair and add some of the mousse to my wavy hair. It looks great throughout the day, and it only took a few second to do, but let’s keep that secret between us.
I hope everyone enjoyed this post on my essential hair products. If anyone has suggestions for products that you have been loving, let me know in the comments below and I’ll make sure to check them out. Have an awesome day!
