Hair Products I Can't Live Without

After a total not thought out bob haircut. I decided I needed to do everything in my power to get my hair to grow back longer and stronger then it was in the first place. I am a constant user of heat protectant sprays. I avoid heat styling my hair as much as possible. I have put some highlights in my hair, but I love them so much ! I was always hesitant to put any color in my hair from previous experiences. But, with subtle highlights that don't start at the root of my hair, I don't have to spend hours at the salon. 

This post is dedicated to all of the products that I use in my hair currently, that I love.

First off let me give a much needed pat on the back to Suave for their keratin infused line ! It is easily just as good as shampoo that I have spent 50+ dollars on. Although, I still like to wash my hair with expensive shampoo. Everyone has their thing. But this stuff is liquid gold as far as I am concerned ! The whole line is great. They work amazing in conjunction with one another. I always use Suave Keratin Infusion shampoo, conditioner and heat defense leave in conditioner together. The smell is also great ! 

When my hair needs a serious dose of moisture I love Kerastase Shampoo it instantly feels like my hair is repaired once I use the shampoo and conditioner combo.

Bumble and Bumble makes such amazing shampoo and basically everything else under the sun is great from Bumble and Bumble. The seaweed conditioner makes hair feel like silk. When I use the seaweed hair conditioner and shampoo my hair gets too soft. So, I se the Bumble and Bumble Alojoba shampoo with it. This combo makes my hair feel just right.

My arsenal of heat defense sprays. I always use the orange bottle called Breakthru on my hair. It is a foam and I apply it to hair as soon as I am done towel drying. It smells great and doesn't make my hair feel greasy. I rotate between Got2b Guardian Angel and Dove Heat Defense Therapy. And when I curl my hair since with Heat, I always use Beyond The Zone  Smooth Criminal. If I know I am doing heavy duty curling or straightening, I will use all 4 to protect my hair. Heat damage is the worst because it cause split ends, fried hair, broken and damaged hair and more. So, never leave home without protection ;) LOL.

Although, I am sure everyone knows this is an amazing hair iron. I love my Chi Air hair straightener. I love that it brings out the highlights in my hair and I even curl my hair with my hair iron. I love this hair iron because I feel like it equally distributes the heat throughout your hair. Plus, it is PINK lol.

I love the Milani Hair Triple Threat Curling Iron .  It has 3 barrel sizes and it is just one hair curler. You change the barrel depending on the size of the curl you want. I think it is amazing. My curls stayed in place for three days and looked great. For a girl with pin straight hair, that says a lot ! I love this curling iron ! 

Below are the results using the smallest barrel :

The curls really brought my highlights out ! Love it .

Don't forget heat defense sprays when curling or straightening ! 

Heatless Curls :

Yes, heatless curls are achievable even when you have straight hair naturally. Here are some embarrassing photos of the process :

I scrunch my hair with Garnier Fructis and Alterna Ocean Waves

Then I section my hair into about 8-10 mini buns :

Hair is divided 

Hair is split into sections and put into about 8-10 messy buns.

I leave that in for about 8 hours. This is a plan ahead kind of hair style. I have slept on it this way. I came up with this in high school, when all I wanted was curly hair. Now it comes in handy when I don't want to heat style but still want to change up my look.

Here is the finished product :

It is definitely not the longest lasting method of curling your hair. But, it is heat free and damage free. And, that makes me happy. 

I also, just for precaution put a light glaze of clear coat in my hair to protect my ever so slight highlight from the blazing Florida sun. Below is the one I used I kept it in my hair for about a half hour. It is called Jazzing and I got it in clear at Sally's beauty supply 

My hair is shinier right now and thats about all I notice. My highlights are shinier and my hair is more manageable. So, thats a plus !

And last but not least my FAVORITE PRODUCT for my hair that was a somewhat recent purchase :

Living Proof Prime Style Extender

At first I was like, "really, a primer for your hair?? "

But, now I do notice I can go at least 2 extra days between shampooing. Major bonus and if I need to refresh my hair I just run this through and blow dry for a short amount of time and I love it ! 

This is my favorite hair invention so far !
