Welcome to my hair: a tangled mess of fine, thin hair that’s normally doused in dry shampoo and curls. I’ve learned through the years how to manage my specific hair type, however, and after a year of requests, I’m finally ready to share my tips and products with you!
Like I said above, my hair is fine, thin, and lifeless, because of this, my mane gets oily after only a few hours. Seriously. So naturally, I always have some degree of dry shampoo throughout it. My favorite as of late is this Batiste in blonde. I love the scent and the fact that you can choose a tint, so your hair doesn’t resemble a Victorian powdered wig after you apply it.
When I do wash my hair, (and I do, I promise!) I use a variety of shampoos. There’s currently three brands in my shower, ha! I’m always experimenting, but my favorite shampoo ever, is Güd by Burt’s Bees in Vanilla Flame simply for the smell. I am an absolute sucker for anything vanilla and sweet! The conditioner, however, even though it smells just as heavenly, isn’t my cup of tea, as it does nothing for my poor tangles. My hair stylist recently introduced me to Kevin Murphy products, specifically the Kevin Murphy Angel Wash and Angel Rinse and I am utterly obsessed. It doesn’t have the nasty fillers that most shampoos and conditioners do, and it smells like how my dreams feel. Oh and PS, shout-out to Macie, who cuts my hair and gives the best hair advice. You can find her at Bzar Salon!
Moving onto my absolute favorite deep conditioner: Sebastian Penetraitt. It’s absolute crack to me. Just try it.
My hair is naturally fragile, and I get my hair lifted a few shades, which doesn’t help the matter, so of course I have a favorite overnight mask, and it’s nothing more than organic, non-refined, extra virgin coconut oil. slob some in, put your hair up, sleep, shower in the morning, wash it extremely well, and bam, soft hair. I swear by coconut oil.
My last and probably my favorite tip, is hair extensions. As I’ve repeated over and over in this post, I have thin, thin hair. I have the length, but to add that extra kick of volume and depth, I use Irresistible Me extensions in color #613 nearly everyday! Since I just need that extra thickness, personally, I only use the four weft section near the bottom of my hair. To say I’m obsessed is an understatement. The quality of the hair is impeccable. I’ve worn a lot of extensions in the past, but this brand wildly surpassed my expectations. I’m never not touching them, whether I have them styled in a braid, or just down and crazy. It’s just really fun to experiment with different hair lengths and volumes, honestly. The possibilities are endless!
So, there it is, my amateur hair care. What is your own favorite tip or product that you use? Let me know in the comments! I LOVE hearing from you!
