I have used just about every hair product under the sun!
Being in my mid-forties (ugh) has given plenty of time to experiment. I have been on a quest to achieve the look I want with-out damaging my hair and with-out spending a fortune or loads of time. If you know me, I’ll throw my hair in a top knot in a hot second if I feel so inclined. I want to extend the time between shampoos. I don’t want to spend 30 minutes drying and styling my hair every other morning. #worldproblems
What’s my hair type?
My hair is fine (likes to frizz in our lovely mostly humid weather), I bleach and color my hair regularly… Well, my hair stylist bleaches and colors. haha!
I haven’t personally bleached my hair since I was 14. It was called “frosting” back then and I have vivid memories of my mom and I taking turns wearing the plastic cap with holes and pulling our hair through with a little metal hook that came with the store bought kit. Hello 1987!! Does this bring back any memories for you? I’m so grateful for foiling!
My hair tends to get oily at the crown and I typically cannot go more than two days with-out washing. Dry shampoo you say? No ma’am. It weighs down my hair and makes it look like I need a shower even more so. I really envy the girls who say “by Friday I’m 80% dry shampoo” while fluffing their perfect hair.
Wash your hair at night, girl! Negative, I cannot sleep on wet hair. I’ll wake up with a really crazy frizzy situation!
Gel is crunchy, mousse is heavy, hair spray… just no.
Washing and blow drying my hair three times a week at least then using a flat iron and/or curling iron makes it dry and damaged at the ends.
Alrighty, enough about my hair…. I think you get the picture and my struggles.
Here are my needs:
#1: I do NOT want to feel anything in my hair.
#2: I want to be able to get more days between washings.
#3: I will not pay a crazy amount for a product that is literally going down the drain. Been there, done that, over it.
Here’s my latest greatest repurchase: OGX Biotin & Collagen
It smells amazing and feels nourishing the second it hits my scalp. I swear my hair has more body after using this line for a couple of months.
Their thermal protection treatment feels weightless. I use about a nickel size amount and work it into my damp hair starting in the middle and finishing up on the roots. Moroccan Argan Oil goes into my ends and I’m ready to blow dry.
I’ll section my hair and use a paddle brush once I’ve gotten most of the moisture out.
I have a Moroccan Oil Flat Iron and and old curling iron (I can’t remember the name of) to finish out my hair depending on what I want to do with it. Since I’m usually in a hurry, running the flat iron through seems to be just fine. (I section my hair for this too) Typically on the second day I’ll curl. But low and behold – since using the thermal protection treatment I can get through a third day!!!!!! Hallelujah!!! Praise be!!
I know you get my excitement on this.
So there ya have it! My go-to hair products. I may grab another shampoo out of this line to alternate (because I’ve heard that’s a good thing) maybe the Coconut Oil one?
Have you tried any products from this line? What are your thoughts?
