This morning I had my hair cut and it feels so healthy! I asked my stylist for long layers and love the way it turned out. I always enjoy talking with her about my favorite hair products and techniques I’ve been using, and learning about new ones while in the chair!
During today’s appointment, I realized that I’m very loyal to the products I use. I have long, thick, wavy hair that is most definitely not ‘wash and go’. Since my hair naturally takes a bit of effort to look polished, I’ve spent the past few years learning about the best products for my hair type.
In the pursuit of finding my favorite hair products, I’ve found that you really get what you pay for. The only drugstore product I now use on my hair is my thermal protectant spray. Now that I use salon-quality products, I find that a little goes a long way so they last much longer.
Since I don’t need to purchase refills as often, I find that I can justify the higher cost as well. This is huge for adhering to our budget For example, I asked my stylist for recommendations to get my hair in tip-top shape leading up to our wedding and she suggested this shampoo and conditioner. At first, I had sticker shock but was delighted to discover that the bottles lasted six months because the product is so rich. They might last even longer for someone with less hair to wash!
For simple reference, I’ve gathered a comprehensive collection of all of my favorite hair products here. Simply click on a specific product to learn more! I am also a huge fan of these bobby pins, which you can buy in bulk on Amazon. Hooray for bargains that work well and get the job done!
