Hair Care Regimen

August 19, 2014


My mom is a hairdresser, so I have always lucked out in the great hair care product department.  I often mix things up and and have always been open to trying new things… but I wanted to share my tried and true favorites with you all today!

Straight Hair

Straigh Hair

Shampoo/Conditioner: S Factor Smoothing*

Deep Conditioner (once a week): TGI Serious Conditioner*

After Shower Products: It’s a 10 Leave-in Product*

Thermal Product: Paul Mitchell Thermal Protection Spray

Hot Tools: BaByliss Flat Iron


Curled Hair


Shampoo/Conditioner: Goldwell Dual Senses Ultra Volume Gel Shampoo and Conditioner – This makes your hair feel a little weird but looks GREAT (so if you can get past that I highly recommend it!)

After Shower Products: Matrix Vavoom Root Spray

Thermal Product: Matrix Biolage Thermal Active Setting Spray*

Hot Tools: Hot Tools Curling Iron*

* = tried and true and has been in my hair line-up for the past 10 years


As far as my actual hair care – I was a swimmer throughout high school and was constantly washing my hair, but as I’ve gotten older I’m trying to wean off my usual schedule and protect my hair more.  Being blonde, “dirty hair days” aren’t as easy to hide, but I love good old baby powder and have tried about four different dry shampoos recently but haven’t been in love with any of them (I’ve heard good things about Oribe, so that’s next on my list!).

Currently I wash my hair every other day, and rock a good old top knot or fun braids on the “dirty” days.  I also try to let my hair air dry a bit before blowdrying/using hot tools (lessen the damage).  The fact I don’t color my hair and try to get semi regular trims (longer hair is more forgiving) has also helped me in the hair department… what secret (or not so secret) tips do you have for the hair department?!

    Kenra has a product called Platinum. It’s a dry powder texture spray that not only smells fabulous but it is great at adding volume on day 2 or 3, along with absorbing oils. Unlike a lot of dry powder sprays, it doesn’t leave a chalky feel to the hair. I use it as well as a texture spray on the same day as I wash 🙂

    Toni & Guy Cleanse Dry Shampoo. I swear by this stuff it can go 4 days without a wash and everyone comments hiw great my hair smells. It’s a little on the expensive side but I think it’s worth every penny!
