Hair Help

"Perfect Hair Day" by Living Proof
Blow drying and styling my hair is probably one of my least favorite things to do.  I have absolutely ZERO patience for it, so I'm always thrilled when I find products that make the process easier and faster.  I love each and every one of these and all of them have made the dreaded task of doing my hair a lot more tolerable.  Since I'm always on the look out for new products, I'd love to hear what your favorites are!

1. - "Perfect Hair Day" by Living Proof - Hands down, this is my favorite hair product EVER.
Its name pretty says it all.  It's a 5-in-1 styling product that smooths, adds strength and volume, conditions and polishes your hair.  Plus, it smells INCREDIBLE.  I evenly apply a dime sized amount of to damp hair before I blow dry. 

2. - Good hair brushes are important!  If you haven't tried a detangling brush, you need to.  It detangles wet hair without any pulling or pain.  There are a lot of them on the market, but this one is my current favorite.  After my hair has been rough dried with my fingers, I use a round brush to shape and smooth. 

3. - I like to switch up my hair products from time to time in order to avoid a "hair rut".  As much I love "Perfect Hair Day", I sometimes swap it out for a volumizing mousse.  I definitely believe that switching your hair products every few days gives new life to you hair. 

4. - Clips!! As I mentioned above, I first rough dry my hair to get it about 95% dry.  I then use clips to divide my hair so I can finish the process with my round brush.  I've found that using a round brush on almost-dried hair adds a lot more shine as opposed to using it on completely wet hair.

5. - This hair dryer by Elchim has cut my drying time in half.  Period. 

6. - If you like that beachy/day old hair feel, then Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray is for you.  Next to "Perfect Hair Day", this is my 2nd favorite hair product.  It's kind of pricey, but a tiny bit, goes a LONG way.  Oh, and it also smells absolutely amazing (I'm a sucker for good smelling hair products). 

7. -  L'Oreal Elnett hairspray has been a long time favorite of mine.  It's incredibly lightweight and gives my hair just the right amount of hold.
