Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes! Today is all about showcasing my favorite products for taming my mane of crazy hair.
Like anyone, I go through phases with my hair. From short to long, and even dark brown for a hot second, my hair has seen a lot over the past few years. But recently I’ve been focusing on embracing my natural hair color and style for everything that it is! Which often means that I’ve learned to love the thick, frizzy mess that my hair can turn into on some days. Everyone has their own hair care routine that’s specific to what their hair needs, and it can be hard to find products that make your hair healthy, not just manageable.
If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I cut about six inches off of my hair at the beginning of August, and as much as I loved it, I’ve already decided that I’m growing it out again. Because of this conscious decision of mine, I decided that if I’m growing it out again, I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure that it is healthy and hydrated.
I’ve had quite a few people ask me questions about my hair, so I’m going to do my best to answer them all in this blog post. For one, my hair is super thick, which I consider to be more of a blessing than a curse. My hair always has a lot of volume to it, even when I don’t necessarily want it to. That’s the reason why I never straighten my hair. Honestly, I don’t even remember the last time that I did!
I loveeee curling my hair, as you can tell from my blog, but believe it or not, the hair that you see in my photos is often second day hair with no touch-ups. I do my hair maybe three times a week, and the rest of the days are just bed head or second day hair, but mostly bed head. My trick? I sleep in a low pony with a loose scrunchie! I don’t exactly know what my hair does when I sleep, but it seems to turn out alright!
Shampoo + Conditioner
I just started using this shampoo last month after feeling like I had a lot of product build-up weighing my hair down. This stuff is AMAZING! It’s essentially like a detox for your hair. It isn’t as much of a soapy lather as most shampoos are, but it leaves your hair soft and feeling super clean! I’ve also noticed that my hair has so much more volume now that I started using it. It’s gentle enough for daily use, but I’ve been trying to keep it to two times a week with this shampoo and the rest with another!
I saw a commercial about this conditioner on Spotify last month, and I was immediately intrigued. It definitely lives up to the hype, in my opinion! In addition to product build-up, I felt like my hair was getting much greasier with my old conditioner, and I wasn’t entirely sure why because I only put it on my ends. But, either way I switched to this foaming mousse conditioner and I don’t think I’ll ever go back! One pump goes such a long way, and it’s lightweight enough that I can put it on from root to tip in order to help with frizz and it doesn’t make my hair greasy!
First off, this Almond Honey Hairgurt by Project Beauty is my fave! It’s intended to be used as an in-shower conditioning hair mask, but sometimes I’ll use a little bit after I brush my hair or to add a little moisture to my second day hair. It smells absolutely incredible, and a little bit goes such a long way!
Shea Moisture’s Heat Protect Oil Serum is from the same collection as the shampoo that I mentioned above. I use this on my ends prior to curling, and I’ll also put it on anytime that my hair feels dry.
I’ve been a fan of It’s a 10 products for so long, and this hair gel is no exception. If you have crazy curly hair that gets super frizzy, this is the product for you! My hair is frizzy 98.9% of the time, but this gel has definitely helped tame my mane so that it’s not so unruly!
