Hair Care Basics

My hair is naturally very thin and straight but I love the look of loose, beachy waves.  I've tried countless hair products over the years ranging from very expensive to very cheap.  While I do believe that hair products make a big difference, I've found that you don't have to spend a fortune to have volume, body and shine.  Since I color my hair, I'm a firm believer in sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.  I like to switch up my shampoo and conditioner from time to time so I alternate between #'s 1 & 2 on my list.  The products and tools below are some of my all time favorites.  What are your favorite hair care products?  I'm always excited to try something new!  

1. Pureology Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner - One of the best shampoo/conditioners I've ever used
2. L'Oreal EverPure Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner - Great, affordable and sulfate free
3. Chi Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron - For those days I want stick straight hair
4. Hot Tools Professional 1.5" Curling Iron - I use this to create my loose waves
5. John Frieda Full Repair Root Lift Foam - Great root lifting foam that works!
6. Kiehl's Silk Groom Serum - I apply a few drops for frizz free, shiny hair
7. Tigi Bed Head After Party - My favorite smoothing creme that I've been using for years!
8. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum - Great smoothing serum that smells SO good
9. John Frieda 100% Shine Glossing Mist - I spray this on my hair after styling for added shine
10. L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray - Light weight hairspray to help control fly aways

  1. I use the Pureology Hydrate line too! My hair has never been as healthy!
    Have you tried the Pureology Hydracure Masque? It makes your hair feel like silk and the tub should last forever b/c a little bit goes a very long way :)

  3. I heard coconut milk is quite good for your hair, as well as egg yolk or white or even both. I use Organix Coconut Milk conditioner ~ it makes my hair feel relatively soft! Do you ever get split ends O: ?

  4. I love all of your picks! Bed Head products are so nice. I use Moroccan Oil on my hair now from the cheapy brand called Organix. I swear, my hair has never felt better. And I've always wanted to try Pureology. I use Joico right now and I like it, but I always like switching it up every now and then. :)

  5. I like to mix up my shampoos and conditioners as well. These products look great, and with my curly hair I'm always looking for new anti-frizz treatments :)

    Have a great weekend, Audrey!

  6. What a crazy coincidence! I was just reading up on how to grow out my fine, naturally curly hair and read about shampoos sans sulfate being the best. Now I don't have to read every bottle looking for it, thank you! I'm about to try olive oil conditioners, hopefully that will help my ends. And I love love love all-natural shine enhancing products. And dry shampoo for my bangs. Some people are iffy about Tresseme's but I swear by it.

  17. Thanks for your post on the hair care basics you like. I believe that a good diet is also one of the hair care basics, salmon in particular. Also you need to choose the right hair care products that are suitable for your individual skin type.

    Thanks.
