My Favorite 5 – Hair Edition
Continuing with the Favorite 5 series, I’m chatting about my favorite hair products today. I am certainly not a hair stylist, but I always get so excited when I find a product that actually works for me. I would love to know what hair products you swear by, so tell me about them in the comments below.
Oh! And there’s a new giveaway with today’s post, so keep on reading! 🙂
GHD Hair Dryer
Ugh. I kind of hate listing this one because it is so pricey, but you guys! It really is the best hair dryer. When my last blow dryer died (more like blew up) I bought this one and when Dave realized how much it cost, he was a little bit upset with me (as he should have been – I’m crazy). But, I told him all of the research I did (something he taught me to do….so, you know #hisfault) pointed to this blow dryer! And the reviews were right – this thing is the jam! My hair drys smoother and faster. My mom came to visit us and she used it and I didn’t even mention anything about how nice it was and after she got done doing her hair she came in the room and was like, “Oh my gosh! I need that blow dryer! What is that thing?” It is definitely a splurge, but if I’m talking favorite hair products today, I just can’t leave this one out.
GHD Curling Iron
Okay, so this is kind of like the above product. It is pricey, but it is amazing! AMAZING, I tell you. I’ve tried a lot of curling irons and this GHD curling iron beats them all! My hair doesn’t usually hold curl that well, but with this curling iron, I can curl it and it will stay for 3 days! 3 DAYS, ya’ll! And I don’t use one ounce of hairspray (I think hairspray makes my face breakout). My mom has the GHD flatiron and she swears by it too – I used it last week when I was with her and it is amazing and now I kind of want that too, even though I rarely wear my hair straight anymore….but, seriously – I just don’t think you can go wrong with GHD products. I’ve actually been eying this curling wand because every beauty blogger on the planet swears by it, but I just can’t imagine anything better than the GHD curling iron because it is that good..and I think it would be even better if I actually knew what I was doing…but I don’t really know how to do hair. I just try to make it look like the pictures I see on Pinterest and this GHD curling iron gets me as close as I’m probably ever going to get, considering my amateur efforts. #realtalk
L’Incroyable Blowdry Miracle Reshapable Heat Lotion by Kerastase
This product is new to my arsenal, but it has quickly claimed a spot as one of my favorite hair products. After reading so many rave reviews about it, I decided to give it a try and it has lived up to the hype. If you don’t wash your hair everyday and don’t like adding a bunch of product to your hair, then I think you will really like this product. It allows you to style and re-style your hair without adding more product to your hair – you just need heat. So, when you use a curling iron or straightener or blowdryer this magical wax (←my term, not Kerastase’s) in the product activates and allows you to reshape your hair so easily. I was shocked at how smooth my hair was after using this product. I used it one day, then the next day I worked out, didn’t wash my hair, took it out of it’s ratty pony tail and ran the blow dryer over it to dry the sweat (I know, so gross), took my GHD curling iron to it and voila! My hair looked super fresh. I was shocked because typically the second day post wash, my hair is a little frizzy and flat (most likely because I workout/run). I have loved almost every product I’ve ever tried by Kerastase, but this one might just be my very favorite.
Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo
I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoo, but the Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo (I use the dark tone) is definitely my favorite. I’ve recently tried the Drybar’s dry shampoo and Sally Hershberger’s 24K dry shampoo and both left my hair feeling a bit too dry. This dry shampoo by Moroccan Oil smells fabulous (like all their products) and it absorbs some of the oil/sweat in my hair without over-drying it.
Texture Expert Lift Extreme by L’Oreal Paris
I love using this mousse on the roots of my hair (I apply it before I blow-dry) to add some lift and volume. I’m actually currently out of this product and I can always tell if I really love a product if I really miss it when I run out. I’ve bought this product multiple times and I keep going back for it because it works and I notice a difference when I don’t use it. I have a lot of hair, but it is fine and it falls pretty flat and this product helps provide some volume that stays for a few days. This mousse isn’t sticky or heavy and it smells great.
Today I’m giving away the Kerastase L’Incroyable miracle heat lotion to one reader, as a thank you for supporting Cupcakes n Crunches. 🙂
