Not all of what I’m mentioning in this post will work for your hair, so keep that in mind. However, if you have fine, thin hair like me then you might like these products.
The products I like to use are as follows:
Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo & Conditioner: I started using this after my hair stylist recommended it. I dyed my hair back in October and recently again this month. Or was it last month? I can’t remember, lolz. As the name suggests, it’s great for colored hair and it really does extend you hair color. I like it because it’s sulfate-free, which means I’m not putting any harmful stuff on my hair and scalp. The best part is that it’s relatively inexpensive for a salon brand.
Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo & Conditioner: This is the brand I was using before I colored my hair (btw, they do have a color-safe line as well.). Yesterday, I actually started using it again in conjunction with the above products. My hair & scalp have been feeling kind of dry lately, so I thought I would try this combo out for a bit and see what happens. These two are great products because they add volume to my hair and moisturize it. I don’t think my hair has been as soft as it is after using this shampoo and conditioner.
Renpure Originals Coconut Water Mist Leave-In Treatment: I have the most unruly, snarly, knotty hair on the planet. At least I like to think so. My hair needs a little help because of this. This is where this product comes in. I have tried a lot of leave-in conditioners over the years, but none like this one. It’s soo lightweight, which is great because it doesn’t weigh my hair down. It also is the only leave-in that prevents having to yank the knots out of my hair. My comb slides right through my strands. I found mine at Target, but I’m pretty sure you can find it other places.
Redken Align 12 Protective Styling Lotion: I like to use a lot of heat on my hair, whether it’s blow drying it or straightening it or both. Another hair stylist recommended this product to me to protect my hair from said heat. However, there’s a catch with this one. Because my hair is soo fine, this cream leaves a residue on my poor strands which in turns weighs them down. Therefore, I have stopped using this product for awhile. If you have thicker hair then me, I think you would like this product.
Kenra Volume Dry Shampoo: I love dry shampoo and I have tried quite a few. This one has been the best out of all of them, at least for higher end hair products. It doesn’t leave that gross, white residue that makes you look like you have dandruff and it smells amazing. The best part…it gives me the volume I want and need in my life.
Redken 05 Wind Blown Texture Spray: This stuff is awesome. I like to use it on my second and third day hair. This is when my hair tends to start looking super flat. I just spray this in, give my hair a shuz (sp?, lols.), and I’m done.
Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment: My hair loves to go frizzy. I’ve tried soo many products to tame the frizz, but not all have worked. Until now! This hair oil has worked wonders on my frizz ball hair. I like to use it right after I have blown dried my hair; that’s when it tends to be the frizziest.
Brushes & Comb:
- Wet Brush: This brush has been a life saver. I used to use a comb, actually I still use a comb when my hair is wet, to comb through my wet hair. It wasn’t doing the trick. I went back to using a Wet Brush and voila! Much easier to brush through my wet hair while protecting it.
- Wet Brush for Blow Drying: This is my new baby. Lately, I have been blow drying my hair and the above Wet Brush wasn’t helping. I saw my hair stylist using a brush with slots in it that was letting the air flow through. I decided I needed one of those. Luckily, my favorite brand had one. I haven’t looked back ever since. Now, my hair doesn’t take that long to blow dry in the first place. But it takes even less time to dry my hair with this brush. I would recommend this brush to everyone, no matter what hair type you are.
- Wide-Tooth Hair Comb: Now, I don’t remember what brand this comb is but I do know that it works. I don’t use it for much these days other than for parting my hair. Can get these anywhere, but I got mine at Target.
Those are the products I like to use to take care of my hair. What products do you like to use? Do you have fine, thin hair like me? Do you use any of these products yourselves? I’d love to hear your suggestions and responses down in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
