And now on to the products.
My hair gets dried out pretty easily, so I like to use oil before shampooing to add and maintain moisture. My current favorite is Almond oil. It is light and moisturizing. It doesn't weigh my hair down or cause unwanted build up. It also makes my hair really shiny. Coconut oil is also very good and actually penetrates the hair shaft to deeply moisturize, but I find if I use it too often, it builds up in my hair. I like to use Coconut oil once a week.
One 'n Only Argan Oil is my current shampoo. It is sulfate free and very gentle on my hair. It gives my hair really good slip in the shower, and a good amount of shine when my hair dries. You can find it at Sally Beauty Supply and I believe Ulta carries this line as well.
Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition is my favorite conditioner. I like to use silicone free conditioners because silicone builds up on my hair, which makes it tangled, dull and causes my hair to go limp, so, this conditioner is great for every day use if your hair is sensitive to silicones. I can usually get away with silicones in styling products as long as I use a clarifying shampoo every once in a while. It has Olive oil, Avocado oil, and Shea oil. It makes my hair really soft and is light enough for me to even use a little as a leave in conditioner.
I love using Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves spray after I towel dry my hair. It has a light hold and smooths my hair and helps enhance the waves and reduce frizz. This also makes my hair shiny, which is always good. :P
The serum I am currently testing out is One 'n Only Argan oil. So far I like it quite a bit, but I do have to use it sparingly due to the amount of silicone in it. It seems to give my hair more thickness and shine, which is quite nice, and it also seems to reduce the drying time for my hair. I think it adds good heat protectant as well.
What are your favorite products?
