I want my hair to be soft, shiny and healthy all the time. To feel and look like I just got out of the hair salon every day – and I don’t feel like this is too much to ask! I strongly believe that good hair makes you feel better about yourself all together, and the opposite is also true – there is nothing like a bad hair day to distract me from the things I really should be focusing on.
The following three hair care products are the best I have ever used, and each of them is part of my daily routine. They are also great for someone like me who doesn’t like to spend a lot of time getting ready in the morning but still wants great hair!
Argan oil and moroccan oil have become somewhat of a trend the past couple of years in the hair care world. I love natural products and oils so I have tried many variations of these products by different brands, but there is only one that I have stay loyal to for over four years. Moroccanoil Treatment Original has completely transformed my hair. One of my favorite things about it is the thick consistency, unlike many other products that feel more watered down and oily in my hair. It makes my hair touchably soft, nourished, and shiny for days. I seriously can’t say enough good things about this product, it has consistently been one of the best hair care products I have ever used. If you have dry or easily damaged hair I highly recommend Moroccanoil.
For my medium/long hair I use about two pumps of it after I get out of the shower and towel dry my hair. I focus the product on the ends and work it halfway up my hair to cover the ends of all of my layers. Sometimes if my hair is feeling extra dry after I style it I’ll add half a pump and work it through my hair. But be careful, too much on dry hair can leave it feeling oily.
If you don’t want to commit to spending the money without trying the product first they come in mini sizes that are perfect to give it a test run!
Living Proof Restore Instant Repair
This product came highly recommended to me by my hair stylist, and I will forever be thankful to her. I started using this product right after I got my haircut and it has prolonged the time in between cuts, leaving my hair healthier and longer than it has been in years. It is a corrective, leave-in cream with Living Proof’s patented Healthy Hair Molecule and infused with a silk protein. Living Proof Restore Instant Repair claims to protect against new split ends, strengthen hair after just one use, and protect against UV rays. I can attest that it truly helps to restore and prevent damage, which is why it makes my “best hair care products list”.
Use this the same way I use the Moroccanoil, two pumps after I towel dry my hair. Focus it on the ends of the hair and layers and then comb your hair with a wide tooth comb to work the products all the way through your hair.
Sidenote: It is safe on color and chemically treated hair.
Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1
If you’re into haircare then you know all about Drybar. This is my favorite product of theirs by far. It is a volumizer, texturizer, and dry shampoo all in one. I mostly use it as a dry shampoo, and it absorbs the oils in my hair without leaving a white residue that takes forever to get out. It leaves my hair feeling freshly washed, opposed to other dry shampoos that I have used that feel like they’re simply masking the oils. It also protects hair from UV ray damaged which is great in the summer.
I also use this when I creating a beachy or wavy curled look. If my hair is clean then it gives the curl something to hold onto. If my hair is dirtier, it helps to add volume and texture to the strands. It’s not a heat protectant though, so make sure you add that to your styling routine!
I know this list may seem short to some people, but I am pretty low maintenance. I like products that work the way they say they will work, and even better, products I can use in multiple ways. These three products have completely transformed my haircare routine. They not only cut down on the time I take styling my hair, but they also save me money in the long run. In my opinion, these are the best hair care products that money can buy.
