Favorite Hair Products

Another video for you this fine Monday morning (although I actually filmed this one yesterday afternoon). This one is all about hair products so perhaps not the most intriguing one I’ve ever posted, haha! But it’s a question I get asked frequently so I thought I’d share. πŸ™‚

Products mentioned in this video:

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum
L’Oreal EverSleek Sulfate-Free Reparative Smoothing Shampoo
L’Oreal EverSleek Sulfate-Free Reparative Smoothing Conditioner
It’s A 10 Leave-In Conditioner Plus Keratin
Nexxus ProMend Split End Binder
VO5 Extreme Style Heat Defense Conditioning Spray
John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer
Ribbon Hair Ties

For the record, none of these companies asked me to promote their products, but L’Oreal really should have considering that I talk so much about liking their products better than more expensive lines, ha! However, to be totally transparent, this post does includes affiliate links. But I really doΒ genuinely want to share my favorite products with you guys! πŸ™‚

Have you tried any of these products before?
What is your favorite hair care product?

  1. your grandpa is your hair dresser? that’s so sweet πŸ™‚ i’m scribbling down the products you mentioned, and i’m probably just going to go ahead and try them all – i don’t really have a routine, so i’m happy to take yours! love that shirt, too πŸ™‚

    • Yup! Well, he has been until this last year when he fell and injured his arm. I still consider him my barber, though, because he has been for you know… 26 years, ha! I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve had my hair cut by anyone other than him. πŸ™‚ He was a barber by trade and just always knew how to work with my hair. I’m definitely having trouble finding a new stylist after his injury. This is probably the real reason my hair is so long, ha! I’m afraid to let anyone else do more than trim it. πŸ˜‰

      Let me know what you think about these hair products! I really have gone through SO MANY over the years so I’m happy to recommend the ones that I know work well (at least for me). πŸ™‚ Oh, and thanks! I love this shirt! The back of it is SUPER cute! I need to take a picture of me wearing it from behind so you guys can appreciate it, haha!

  2. This is great, as I am always looking for new products to give my hair a big more life.

  3. You are so adorable. πŸ™‚ I haven’t used any of those products before, but honestly I’m pretty lazy when it comes to my hair. It’s short, so I flat iron it every day, blow dry it every other day (usually…sometimes I just let it air-dry), and I mainly just use mousse and hairspray…and sometimes a smoothing oil. My hair could probably use a bit more work, but I just don’t have the discipline to take the time for that.

    • Oh girl, I hear you. I was definitely that way (super low maintenance about my hair) for most of my life. It’s only been in the last couple of years (especially since discovering the sulfate free lines) that I discovered that I can have beautiful hair so I definitely put a little more time into it now. πŸ™‚ But I can understand not worrying too much about putting too much effort into hair care. Especially if your hair is naturally well behaved (mine isn’t, ha!).

  4. You are too funny! I love the ending! Your hair really is beautiful! If I went that long wothout washing mine it would be nasty! I’ve tried. The longest I can go is one whole day.

  5. First of all, love the video!! Secondly, the L’Oreal sulfate free eversleek line is fabulous. Works so well and smells so so good! Third, totally agree with you on not washing hair everyday. Dry shampoo is my FAVE and seriously life changing haha, second day hair always seems to look the best and talk about a time saver for those of us with long hair that takes more than a wash and air dry to tame πŸ™‚ Great job and will have to be on the lookout for some of the items you mentioned!

    • YES! You know how great the L’Oreal line is! I love that! πŸ™‚ And girl, can you imagine how much of our lives would be spent doing our hair if we had to “do” it every day?! Yikes! I’m thankful for second day hair. πŸ™‚

  6. You are the cutest thing eveeerrr. I love that your grandpa does your hair..that is too legit. I am terrible with anything beauty, including hair. Mine is always a mess.

  7. I am so glad you shared this because your hair is gorgeous!! πŸ™‚ I recently cut my hair into a long bob, so I probably need some different styling products, however, I have been on the hunt for a new shampoo and conditioner and I am definitely going to give those a try!

    Thanks friend! πŸ™‚

  8. love loreal!

  9. Love this video! You have such a cute accent! I love the hair tips. I’m always looking for new products to use in my hair because it’s so unmanageable. I’m definitely going to try some of these!

  10. I think it’s time I get myself some Sulfate-Free Shampoo & Conditioner. I had to laugh that you don’t wash your hair everyday. Neither do I & my husband always says I’m gross. Pshh! What’s he know – he’s just a guy.

    • Psssh indeed! He definitely doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Second day hair is the best! You definitely need to try some sulfate free shampoo! It has made such a crazy difference for me! I can’t even tell you how great it has been. πŸ™‚

  11. I never realized how long your hair was! it’s so pretty! I cut mine months back, regretted it almost instantly, and am now anxiously waiting for it to grow back completely haha

    I’m a huge fan of sulfate-free products as well! The one I have been using for the past 3 years that I LOVE is the Full Volume Lavender & Biotin Shampoo & Conditioner from Andalou Naturals. There’s not many products that I use for that amount of time, so that says a lot. Unfortunately, I just ran out and have to wait until I go back to the US in September to stock up (they sell it at Whole Foods).

    As for styling products, I don’t use many since I only blow-dry and/or straighten my hair a handful of times a year, but that Nexxus Split-End Binder looks amazing!

  12. yay!!!! i am so glad you posted this! πŸ™‚

  13. You have such pretty hair! I have been meaning to try sulfate free stuff, especially since I have naturally curly hair. πŸ™‚

  14. You have GORGEOUS hair, first of all! If I grew my hair that long, it would NOT look that amazing, trust me. Ha, ha. πŸ™‚ So I really enjoyed watching this video and made note of your favorites!! (I use the same shampoo and conditioner, and I love it as well!! I just discovered them recently, and I will never go back to the more expensive brands. This line works SO well)!!

    • AHH! I love that we use the same shampoo/conditioner! That just makes me feel even closer to you, haha! Two of my sisters use it too and for some reason that just strikes me as super great, haha! This line is just so great! I’m glad you like it too. πŸ™‚

  15. “Yay hair!” Love it. Your hair is sooooo long. And so pretty. So I’m glad that you shared your hair care procedure. My experience with sulfate free shampoos and conditioners have always been that they make my hair really greasy. I’m not sure if that means that I’m using to little or too much product – I just always switch back to the drying stuff almost immediately. Maybe I’ll try your recommendation though1

    • I know exactly what you mean. Christopher had the same experience with trying my sulfate free shampoo. But then he washes his hair at least twice a day (once in the morning, once after basketball over his lunch break, and occasionally before bed if we were out in the heat and got sweaty). So my theory is that his scalp produces the appropriate amount of oil for the frequency that he washes his hair (because his hair didn’t use to get quite so oily so fast back when he only showered once a day). So I figure that if he only washed his hair once a day and used the sulfate free shampoo every day and gave his hair time to adjust to it… then it’d work great for his hair. BUT! To be totally honest – he doesn’t need sulfate free hair care. His hair has zero fluff or frizz to it. So he can use the harshest shampoos and be just fine, haha! I’m not sure how your hair is, but if it isn’t naturally frizzy then sulfate free wouldn’t do you much extra good anyway. πŸ™‚

  16. Uhhh your hair is definitely more luxurious than mine. πŸ˜‰ I am just now getting to the point where I know how to make it PRETTY wavy (as opposed to frizzy wavy) with product and getting it straightened is still near impossible because it’s so darn thick! So thanks for the tips, friend!

    • Um, you are a model. You are obviously gorgeous (hair included). So I’m pretty sure you have figured something amazing out! Speaking of… what products do you use? I still don’t have my curly/wavy hair routine down and I could use some pointers!

  17. I LOVED this video and I definitely want to go out and buy every single one of those products haha! I have kind of crazy hair too and you definitely have convinced me to try out this sulfate free shampoo and conditioner… Also–I used to only wash my hair occasionally but just in the past year or so started doing it every day. (For no reason inparticular.) Just curious, but when you shower do you use a shower cap? Do you get your hair wet but just don’t wash it? I’m always interested in people’s tips when it comes to this.

    • ​Yay! I hope you love these products as much as I do! πŸ™‚

      I keep meaning to get a shower cap. But it just never happens, haha! So I just always stick my hair up in a bun on top of my head while I shower. My hair will normally get a little frizzy from the steam, but when I get out of the shower, I’ll brush it out and add my Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum and my hair looks perfect all over again. πŸ™‚ ​

  18. I think it’s so cool that your Grandpa is your hairdresser! I would love to have a hairdresser in my family. I really like the sound of that split end repair product! I might have to get some, because my hair tends to be pretty dry, and I don’t necessarily get it trimmed as often as I should πŸ˜‰ I also really liked the ending…Yay hair! πŸ™‚

    • Haha! “yay hair!” I’m ridiculous. I really should start writing a script or something so I don’t just find myself saying random stuff, ha! In my latest video I have this moment that was so weird I had to take it out… but it was also so funny that I decided to throw it back in as a blooper. πŸ˜‰ Also, yeah! That split end binder is wonderful!
