Hi friends! This is a post I have been wanting to do for a while now. I get a lot of questions/compliments about my hair, and I am honestly so flattered. I cannot take too much credit though, I have just lucked out with amazing hair stylists over the years! I’ll be answering all of the biggest questions I get about my hair as well as talking about the tools and products I use to style it.
When I go to my hair stylist, I ask for my ends to be trimmed at the same length (meaning no layers). I also ask for long layers in the front to shape my face. As far as color goes, I usually bring in a picture of someone’s hair from Pinterest that I love (like most people). I usually end up asking for blonde balayage throughout my hair and in the front to brighten my face. My stylist usually puts a toner on my hair as well to give it a soft ashy look. I get my hair colored about every 3-4 months depending on my schedule.
I use a wand to curl my hair. My hair is very thick, so I have found this hair tool to hold my curl the best. If you have long and thicker hair like mine, I recommend using a wand with a large barrel. This gives you big loose curls/beachy waves. For years I have used the Conair Wand with a 1 1/4″ barrel and have always loved it! For the last few months, I have been using the 1 1/4″ barrel from the Lustrum gift set by Numé. It has been great! I love that this set has multiple barrels of all shapes to give you different curls. To style with these tools, the best tip to remember is to curl AWAY from your face. I also leave the ends uncurled to give my hair a wavy look.
I wash my hair about every 3 days, so dry shampoo works wonders for me! I am always trying out new brands to see what works best for my hair. Currently, I am using one from the Etsy shop, TealAnnie. Stephanie, the owner, creates her products herself! Her Fresh Hair dry shampoo is made of all natural ingredients, which I love. The dry shampoo is powder based and does not leave my hair feeing heavy like some of the spray dry shampoos I have tried. Plus, it has a very fresh and clean smell! (Tip: If I have just washed my hair, I sprinkle dry shampoo in the roots to make it a little “dirty.” This helps give your hair a boost at the roots and is much easier to style.)
I started using texturizing spray a couple of months ago, and I can’t imagine my life without it now! I have been trying out the texturizing spray from Not Your Mother’s, and it has been great. It smells so good, and does not leave my hair feeling stiff or crunchy. I spray the texturizing spray at my roots and through the ends of my hair after I curl it. I am definitely going to try out other brands, so if you have a texture spray you love let me know!
During the winter, my hair feels so dry and tangles so easily. I have been using a reconstructive hair mask and leave-in conditioner by Kristin Ess. She is the hairstylist for Lauren Conrad (one of my style icons), so obviously I had to try her products! Both of them were amazing! You can use the hair mask once a week and the leave-in conditioner each time you get out of the shower. Spray it on completely wet hair before you dry it. I bought the gift set of these two products, but you can also purchase them individually.
I have linked all of the tools and products I use below. What hair products or tips are you loving? Let me know in the comments!
