Hair Hacks

  • When you shower, try to put the shampoo only on the roots of your hair and give yourself a nice scalp massage while you’re at it. Leave the shampoo off the ends of your hair because it can actually dry it out!
  • Likewise, when you shower, put the conditioner only on the ends of your hair. Conditioner is like lotion for your hair and you really don’t need it on the roots as this can make your hair oily faster.
  • On the day you shower, once your hair is dry, use your dry shampoo!!! Using the dry shampoo right away as a preventative will keep your hair fresher longer. Whereas, using the dry shampoo after your hair is already greasy can only do so much…
  • Caster oil is GREAT for your hair. The benefits of caster oil include: moisturizing the scalp, easing dandruff, and leaving your hair smooth and shiny. Also, if you apply caster oil to your scalp it is said to enhance the health of the hair follicles and promote hair growth/prevent hair loss. Caster oil is thick, so how do you apply it? For me, the easiest way is mixing it in with my shampoo and conditioner once a week.

10 Must Have Beauty Products

  1. Hot Tools 1 ¼  inch curling iron.
  2. Heat Protectant Spray for Dry Hair. Aveda>> makes a great one.
  3. Scrunchies galore. I’ve been using them every night for sleeping FOR YEARS. No kinks and doesn’t rip my hair out.
  4. Shower cap. Target>> sells these enormous ones, the only shower cap I can fit all my hair into!
  5. Mini hair straightener. Doesn’t really matter which brand, I wouldn’t spend a lot of money on this. These babies are perfect for traveling, but MOSTLY they are a game changer for those hard to reach hairs around the face OR for bangs.
  6. Large round brush, paddle brush and Wet Brush. You really need all three, wouldn’t you agree, ladies?
  7. Root Boost spray for wet hair, but also one for dry hair. Kevin Murphy>> has this amazing one for dry hair. For wet hair, I feel there are so many options. My favorite is this Moroccanoil Root Boost>>.
  8. Dry shampoo. I feel like Dry shampoo is a personal preference based on your hair type and the consistency you like. I have a favorite powder and spray. Drop Dead Gorgeous Dry Shampoo>> and Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light Tone>>. NOTE: with these dry shampoos, if you have dark hair make sure you get the types for dark hair! I am linking the type I buy which is for light tones or blondes. If you click the link just change the product option to the dark hair option.
  9. Moroccan Oil>> or Redken Diamond Oil>>.
  10. Ionic Hairdryer where you can switch between negative and positive ions for smooth or voluminous hairstyles.
