If you knew me in high school, you know that my hair has come a LONG way. The damage I did to my hair in my early teens was absurd & the sad part was that I didn’t even know how much damage I was actually causing. I didn’t know what a good hair colorist was until I was 16-17 & thankfully I found Kadi who is literally a hair goddess! (You can read all about how she colors my hair here) With her help over the years, I have completely transformed my hair & gotten it to a point where despite the coloring, it’s still healthy. I can’t stress how important it is to get your hair colored by someone who truly knows what they’re doing. When you combine that with taking good care of your hair, you will see a drastic difference in your hair’s overall health!
Okay, now onto my favorite hair products that I have been using to help maintain my color & the ones I use to keep it healthy & strong!
–Purple Shampoo: This is something that I have to use. If you read this post, you know that my hair can get brassy very easily. I personally use purple shampoo once a week & I have found that with the use of this, I can combat that brassiness altogether. I alternate between this Joico shampoo & this dpHUE shampoo. Both work really well!
–Coconut Oil: I have used countless hair masks & I always come back to coconut oil. Honestly, you can’t beat a coconut oil hair mask! It’s affordable (you can buy it at the grocery store), easy to find & gets the job done. I try to use this once a week & I usually keep it on overnight. If you don’t want to keep it on that long, aim for at least 20 minutes. The key to not having greasy hair though is to put the shampoo in BEFORE you get your hair wet. Oil & water don’t mix so you need to break up the oil with the shampoo before adding the water. Trust me, it works!
–Leave-In Conditioner: This is a product that everyone should be using! After every single shower, I towel dry my hair & spray in my leave-in conditioner. Your hair could always use a little TLC & this is such an easy way to keep it healthy & strong. I’ve been using this Briogeo spray for over a year now & actually just got another one because I’m almost completely out of my current bottle.
–Smooth Infusion: This product by Aveda is a must for me. My hair tends to be frizzy & this really helps smooth out my hair without feeling too heavy or greasy. I apply one pump to the ends of my towel dried hair & it really helps with my frizz. If you have a problem with frizzy hair, definitely give this one a try!
–Shampoo & Conditioner: I know that most people say that drugstore shampoo & conditioner are terrible for your hair BUT I beg to differ. I have been using the Garnier Whole Blends for over a year now & I honestly love them. My hair feels amazing & they are incredibly hydrating. So if you’re looking for good shampoo & conditioner that doesn’t cost a small fortune, give these a try!
Those are all of the products I use on a regular basis! What are your go-to products?
I seriously LOVE Aveda products! And the shampoo pre-water is genius… I’m gonna try it out! The only thing is, I’ve heard from so many colorists to avoid Garnier & Pantene!! You obv have amazing hair but I stay away from them because I hear so much!
