I will be the first to admit I am no hair expert, even with a 7-year-old beauty blog. My forte is definitely more makeup and skincare. I’m a minimalist when it comes to my haircare routine. You’re looking at my entire hair product collection (minus my hair tools).
Before I dive into my haircare routine and product collection, I want to talk about how OBSESSED I am with my Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer. I am terrible, I mean terrible, at styling my hair with a regular blow dryer and hair brush and this tool is a total game changer! Back in November, I was eyeing the Dyson Air Wrap but obviously the price point held me back from purchasing. I’m so glad I didn’t because this tool is only $60. A couple of you asked me to do a review on this and I definitely would like to do a dedicated post in the future but in the meantime, I thought I would share my two cents now.
This is my haircare routine, plus all the products I use
I tend to hop between brands of shampoo and conditioner… I don’t know if it’s just me but I feel like once I fall in love with a good shampoo, it eventually stops being effective. So that’s why I shampoo hop.
I also use a clarifying shampoo and replenishing conditioner from Drybar. I purchased this over a year ago and I use this twice a month. It really helps get rid of any buildup and my hair feels so fresh and clean after using.
I don’t use hair masks as often as I should but the only one I have in my arsenal is this It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask. I first tried it back in 2016 and
This might sound strange to some but I prefer buying miniature hair products rather than full-size. I like that I can usually travel with them and believe it or not, they last much longer than you would think.
I actually forgot I had this Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray because I’ve been using my Thickening Soft Mousse for the last several months. I have relatively fine to medium hair and both can get the job done by just giving me that extra lift and volume at the root.
My favorite catchall hairspray is my Redken One United that I apply after I towel dry my hair. It’s a detangler, heat protectant and it’s safe for color treated hair.
During the summer months, Redken Rebel Tame works wonders on my frizzy hair, especially in the DC area humidity.
Would you believe me if I told you I’ve had this Living Proof Prime Style Extender since 2013? Crazy that it’s lasted me this long, right?! It’s probably because I only use a pea-sized amount. After I use the Redken One United, I’ll run this through from roots to ends before I blow dry.
OUAI Texturizing Hairspray smells SO good in my opinion. My husband hates the smell, but I love it and I rarely buy what he likes. I’ll spritz this in my hair on second or third day hair.
OUAI Memory Mist is great for prepping my hair before I curl or straighten it. The scent isn’t as appealing as the Texturizing Hairspray but it keep my tousled curls in place.
Kerastase Powder Bluff and Volume in Powder: Another dry shampoo and texturizing hairspray. The dry shampoo doesn’t leave any residue but both are overpriced. I was using these Kerastase products before I got OUAI and I prefer the OUAI products to these.
