When it comes to my skincare and makeup routines and even fashion and accessories brands, I tend to be pretty loyal to a few tried and true companies, but if we’re talking hair, I must admit I’ll hop around and try pretty much anything. As a blogger, the new products and endless options are constantly coming in (which never gets old to me), but it occurred to me recently that I’m REALLY into my current lineup. And as someone who’s pretty picky about haircare, I thought I’d share with the class. (Full disclosure: I currently have hair extensions, am constantly highlighting and heat-styling, and probably ingest more dry shampoo per year than vegetables. Just so you know what kind of “expert” you’re dealing with here.)
There are few hair brands that make me as happy as Aveda, and I think that visiting a true Aveda Salon, complete with the hand and scalp massages and aromatherapy, is such a treat. I’ve been using the Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner recently and can’t stop sniffing my hair throughout the day. (And now that I write that out, it sounds more than a little strange. Moving on…) Post-shower, I’m all about Aveda’s Smooth Infusion style prep as well. Once a week, I kick things up a notch with a detox shampoo and deep conditioner, and I love the two above from Kevin Murphy. This line is literally like skincare for your hair and has products that address way more hair issues than your average.
And the extras. I’ve pretty much never met a dry shampoo that I didn’t like, and currently I have three in rotation. The Kevin Murphy spray is super lightweight, and I use it more preventatively – to stop oil before it even starts. The Batiste means serious business, and the blonde color helps hide my roots in between highlights. The Aveda Shampure is more of a squeezable powder, perfect for volumizing this greasy mane. I’m not much of a hairspray gal, but this Aloxxi Flexible Hairspray is the perfect lightweight formula, and I’ve used it for years. I usually curl my hair (with this wand), spray finished curls with the Aloxxi spray, brush through it, and finish with the Living Proof humidity shield. And as for the Sugarbear Hair vitamins? I have NO idea how these stack up against similar vitamins, but I DO know that my hair seems to be growing faster and they’re delicious so I actually remember to take them everyday. So that’s the first step, right?
