I've realized lately that I've become a little bit of a shampoo and conditioner hoarder. I like having different ones to pick from in the shower and am always switching them up! I'm interested..am I the only one that does this? Do you stick with one brand or have multiples? With that being said, all of the above shampoos and conditioners are my absolute favorites to keep in my rotation.
Pureology Anti Fade Hydrate: This one has my favorite smell. It's clean, light, and refreshing. It helps your color from fading (no sulfates or salts), and my hair feels so healthy and strong when I use this.
VO5 Clarifying: I was told to use a clarifying shampoo only once a week and that's what I do with VO5's. A clarifying shampoo is important because it removes build-up. VO5's is a whopping .79 cents, found at your local Walgreens, Walmart, etc. I was shocked how much I love this because of the price...this one is worth trying if you use a clarifying shampoo!
Joico K-pak Reconstruct: Ah, one of my favorite brands - Joico! I love most of their shampoos and conditioners. This shampoo begins the reconstruction process and is enriched with Keratin complex. My hair feels so much stronger after I use this. Great product.
Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing: Another affordable winning combination here! I love this stuff and it's only $3.50. Since I have long hair, it's important to find something that can tame my tresses (those frizzies too!) and help smooth it out. This does that without drying out my hair.
Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Total Care: My hair always feels so soft and easier to manage when using this. It gently cleanses your hair and is good on all hair types. They have this in 'damage control' which is great for me to use in the winter when my hair feels dry.
Joico Body Luxe: Another Joico product that I love. This is a thickening shampoo! If you want some body or have thin hair...give this a try.
L'Oreal Ever Pure Smooth: The product I've used the longest on this list and still love. It is inexpensive and it's sulfate and salt free. It helps tame frizz for a sheen, shiny look while also protecting your color from fading. Also protects from humidity and smells WONDERFUL!
As far as leave-in treatments go...I swear by one and only one.
It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin
This product (and this whole line) I can't say enough good things about.
I use this product after I shower on towel dried hair. I let it sit in my hair for a bit and then comb it through.
It does 10 things instantly (get it? It's a "10"? so clever haha), but the ones I notice the most from using this are: replaces lost protein, protects the natural keratin in hair, protects against heat, detangles, defrizzes a & adds shine, and seals cuticles for extra silky hair.
What are you favorite products/hair care brands to use?
What ones am I missing, or should I add to my list to try?
*I would recommend buying the Joico and Pureology products from an authorized retailer so you know you are getting the real deal.
Be back tomorrow for another round of Saw It. Pinned It. Did It!
....and hint: Guess who's going to be busy making 11 dozen cookies?
Wish me luck!
PS-Truly loved, and laughed a lot, at the comments from "How To Spot A Blogger" yesterday.
Thanks for that. :)
