The Hair Products You Didn't Know You Were Missing
We know you’ve read our Ten Tips to Healthy Hair but now you’re dying for more product recommendations and tips. We’ve totally got you covered with all the products you never knew you needed for your hair. As always all of our recommendations are cruelty free because looking good shouldn’t have to hurt anyone!
Let’s start with the basics, shampoo and conditioner. You want a shampoo and conditioner that’s of course going to leave your hair clean and hydrated but it’s way more serious than that. A good shampoo and conditioner is going to do both of those things but a great shampoo and conditioner is sulfate free, leaves your hair frizz free, and smells like heaven in a bottle. Ouai’s Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner is the perfect combination for any hair type that will leave your hair soft, shiny, and frizz free.
We know that if you dye your hair lighter purple shampoo is a necessary evil. We all have a love hate relationship with purple shampoo. Anything we can do to extend the life of our color we’re willing to try but purple shampoos can severely dry out our hair and some are just way too strong. IGK’s Mixed Feelings Leave-In Blonde Toning Drops are the answer to your purple shampoo prayers. Just mix a few drops of this into your shampoo and conditioner or mix it in with your leave in styling products and say goodbye to brassy hair. This toner will cool your color and is formulated with prickly pear to soften your hair and boost shine.
You can literally never have enough hair masks in your shower. One of our new favorites is Gisou’s Honey Infused Hair Mask. This mask is literally sweet like honey. Of course, the main ingredient is honey but it’s combined with minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants that will hydrate your hair, improve elasticity, shine, and instantly makes your hair more manageable.
The way you dry your hair has such a big impact not only on the finished look but the health of your hair. Aquis’ Lisse Luxe Hair Turban is made with fabric woven from ultra-fine fibers that won’t damage your hair while drying it. Drying your hair with this fabric will minimize frizz and protect your hair from the damage it incurs from rubbing against fabric.
Before brushing or styling your hair, use protection! Spray Briogeo’s Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave- In Conditioning Spray to restore your hair’s texture, strengthen split ends, and maintain moisture levels. This spray is also a heat protectant so there’s no need to use one on top of this! It’s non-greasy formula will lock in moisture and leave your hair shiny and frizz free whether you’re styling your hair or letting it air dry.
After reading our tips to healthy hair you know how much damage your hair can incur while brushing it. The Tangle Teezer brush is designed to minimize breakage and damage while brushing your hair and is a key player in the fight against frizz.
Whether your styling your hair or letting it air dry hair oil should be apart of the mix. We know what you’re thinking why would we want to add oil to your hair? Just listen, hair oil is so beneficial to the health of your hair. Hair oil can be so helpful to add shine, reduce frizz, protect against heat and environmental factors, and strengthen your ends. Our all time favorite is Oribe’s Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil.
Healthy hair starts from within! Drinking enough water and taking vitamins should be apart of your everyday routine. Hum’s Hair Sweet Hair gummy vitamins make taking your vitamins tasty but the best part about it is the benefits. These gummy vitamins are vegan and filled with Biotin, Vitamin B, and Zinc which improve the overall health of your hair. Taking these will improve the growth of your hair, your scalp health, and leaves your hair fuller and shinier.
The hair tools you use also have a serious impact on the look and health of your hair. T3 Micro’s products are designed to deliver salon looking results at home and keep the health of your hair in mind. They’re designed with properties that enhance shine and fight off frizz, but most importantly to minimize damage caused by heat. We can’t live without our Cura Luxe hair dryer and Singlepass Wave styling wand.
Hairspray can definitely help with making your curls last but there’s nothing worse than the stiff feeling it leaves. Ouai’s Soft Hair Spray fights flyaways, locks your hair into place, and shields your hair from humidity while leaving your hair soft and shiny.
Sometimes curling our hair just isn’t enough and we want to add some texture and separation to our curls. Adding some Sea Texture Cream from Verb to the ends of your hair will refresh your hair, add volume, and create beachy waves and texture without the beach. Just work this into the ends of your hair for beachy waves!
Dry shampoo is our saving grace between washes. Spray Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo to freshen up your hair and absorb excess oil. It’s made with natural rice starch and doesn’t leave any trace of white powder that so many dry shampoos do. Dry Shampoo, why not dry conditioner? Amika’s Silken Up Dry Conditioner gives your hair that soft and smooth feeling that conditioning leaves without the wash.
