Glam Series: Hair Winners


Linking up with Love Always, Nancy J for another edition of the Glam Series!  This week we are focusing on all things hair.  I would say doing my hair is probably my worst "skill" when it comes to getting ready.  I have pretty fine hair that does NOT air dry well so that means blow drying and styling after every wash for me unfortunately.  I used to have to wash my hair at least 3 times a week but I've spent the last couple of years training my hair to not need to be cleaned so often - I now wash once a week.  Thank God for dry shampoo!  Here are my winning products when it comes to all things hair.

Shampoo & Conditioner: Redken All Soft S&C
I just started using this over the fall after a love/hate experience with Wen haircare.  All Soft is pretty amazing!  It makes your hair super soft (obvi) and has really helped control frizz and flyaways.  It's also very moisturizing but doesn't weigh the hair down at all - which is a hard combination to come by.



Scalp Treatment: Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner
I don't actually have psoriasis but I suffer from dry scalp almost all year round and especially in the winter.  I use this once a week and it really helps keep the flakes at bay.  It does say "plus conditioner" but I find this dries out my hair so I almost always use a deep conditioner following it.



Clarifying Shampoo: Neutrogena Anti-Residue Formula Shampoo
I use this product more in the summer (because in the winter the Dermarest takes its place) but this is a great product to use once a week to get all the gunk out of your hair that is weighing it down.  Again, it can dry out your hair so use a good deep conditioner after it!



Deep Conditioner: Macademia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque
This stuff makes your hair feel brand new!  It will take dry, damaged hair and somehow magically repair it.  A little bit goes a long way with this stuff to make your hair feel soft, smooth and silky.  Added bonus: it smells delicious.


Dry Shampoo: Batiste Blush
I couldn't get into dry shampoo for the longest time.  Every product I tried just weighed my hair down and made it look like it needed to be washed even more badly.  And then I decided on a whim to try an $8 bottle from Ulta and fell in love!  I will spray this stuff all over my roots and leave on while I'm doing my makeup.  After I'm finished, I'll run my fingers through my scalp to really work the dry shampoo in and then brush it out.  Grease evaporates and my hair feels like I just showered that day!



Multi-tasking Product: It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Product
Miracle is an understatement when it comes to this stuff.  If you are looking for a product to eliminate frizz, restore shine, protect hair from heated styling tools, prevent split ends, etc. etc.  THIS is for you!  I couldn't live without it. After I towel dry my hair, I spray this stuff all over it and brush through to distribute it to all strands.


Texturizing Product: L'Oreal Boost It Spray
I just posted my love for this product on Friday and lots of you agreed with me!  This $3.99 stuff has easily replaced my old favorite by Oribe.  This product adds volume to your hair like you wouldn't believe!  Us fine haired ladies can never seem to get the full head of hair look but with this stuff, it's finally possible!

  4. I definitely want to try that hair mask now! And the Redkin products sound so nice! I think the biggest issues with products is that they're too heavy/weigh my hair down.

  10. I only JUST got into dry shampoo last May, so not even a year. I don't feel like I've mastered not washing my hair daily, but it sure would shorten my routine if I could. That texturing spray....yes! Need it!

  13. I totally forgot to get that volumizer....stupid target black hole sucks you in and you forget about your original list! I have never heard of that dry shampoo I love the price point!

  14. I am iffy about dry shampoo but would love to find a good one, because I too have to dry and style my hair after every wash and it's a pain!

  15. I was using Suave's dry shampoo recently because I ran out of Batiste and I don't have an Ulta near my house. I ended up getting a bottle this weekend and Wow I totally forgot how amazing it is! It blows Suave's away! You would never even know it's in your hair! Suave leaves a nasty residue and your hair still feels oily.

  20. Love all of these products and now I've learned about some new ones! I've heard great things about Macademia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque so I'm pumped to get my hands on it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm SO glad that the All Soft S&C have been working for you! It's my favorite S&C of all time. And is that Batista Blush white when it comes out of the bottle? I have the Batiste brunette one and I LOVE it. It's the best dry shampoo that I've ever tried, and trust me, I've tried A LOT.

    I need to add the Macadamia Natural Oil Masque AND that Neutrogena Clarifying Shampoo to my Target list. Thanks for sharing all of these girl!
