Let’s face it: there are a lot of hair products out there, and it can be overwhelming. How do you know which products you actually need? Well, when in doubt, stick to the basics! These are the products that will help you have a perfect hair day, everyday.
A good shampoo and conditioner that you actually love.
Not just because the scent or the pretty packaging, but because it’s actually doing what you need it to. Does it give you good moisture while not weighing down your hair? Do you feel like your scalp is actually getting clean? It takes time to find your perfect shampoo and conditioner! I always recommend purchasing traveler sizes prior to investing in full-size bottles. This gives you the chance to test out products before deciding if you love them and want to keep them in your shower forever! (This post will help you find the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type.)
A styling aid that you will actually use.
There’s nothing worse than walking out of your hair appointment with a new product in tow that you know deep down that you will never use. You feel a pit in your stomach spending $42 on a texturizing cream knowing very well you probably blow dry your hair once every two months so that purchase was pointless. Instead, ask your stylist for a realistic recommendation based off your at-home hair care, not what she does to you in-salon. If you’re a low maintenance type of gal who throws in an oil just through her ends, then stick to that! There’s no problem opting out on all the bells and whistles of hair products! Stick to what you know you will use!
Everybody needs this product in their cabinet! A good dry shampoo will lift-up your locks, refresh them on day three hair, and add some subtle texture. Trust me, dry shampoo is a life saver when you apply it correctly. Check out this post for step-by-step instructions on how to apply dry shampoo the right way.
A mask or treatment to do weekly.
Invest in a mask or treatment to be done at home once a week. This will keep your hair health at an all-time-high, give you a brilliant shine, and make your hairdresser proud at your next appointment! Hair treatments are frequently overlooked, but I am here to remind you just how important they are! Click here to find out exactly what a good weekly hair treatment can do for your hair.
