Winter Hair Products To Try

I’ve tried so many new products over the course of two months. From serums to deep conditioning treatments, I have a few more products to add to my arsenal, which includes some tried and true products, drugstore buys and higher end products.
Drugstore buy: OGX’s Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I bought this on a whim because I liked the packaging. And the way it smelled. It’s gentle and has been my go-to hair washing combo since late summer and it’s super moisturizing.

Fancy buy: Kevin Murphy’s Blonde Angel Wash and Rinse combo and the Hydrate Me Rinse. I’ve been keeping my hair blonde, which means it’s susceptible to brassiness. I hate brassiness and so the Blonde Angel wash is key, paired with the Hydrate Me rinse to moisturize my hair. I use it sparingly since it’s a pricier product and I only want to use a blonde perfecting wash once a week.
Color protecting spray: Mastey’s therapy spray is a light product I’ll use instead of a serum, my typical go-to product to help fight frizz, but days when I want really soft hair that I can pull up, braid, etc, I use less product and I spray this in my hands and then work into my ends. I never spray it into my hair as it won’t get to exact areas I want it to be concentrated.
Deep conditioner: S Factor Serious Conditioner is kind of my “treat yo self” moment. When my hair is feeling particularly dry and brittle..and my legs need to be shaved, I’ll work this into my hair, especially the ends and let is soak in as I take my time cutting down the forest that is my leg hair.
Hair insurance: Olaplex refers to the product as insurance for your hair and I’m just starting to realize the benefits of such a product. When you bleach the shit out of your hair like I do, you’ll notice clumps of hair fall out and you’re desperate for a solution (besides saying no to bleach). I haven’t used this in conjunction to a color appointment, but have used it as a treatment before a blowout at the Bang Blowout bar in Grand Rapids. It had a little more strength and it’s something I need to continue to use. In addition to his treatment and thick conditioners throughout the week, I add Living Proof’s leave in conditioner. It’s the only leave in conditioner that I actually like.

Light serum: I have so many serums and for the most part, I can’t find anything wrong or particularly great with any one product. The difference I can tell is how heavy it is. Moroccan oil is great for my hair when it’s super dry, like post-blow out, but most of the time I prefer a little lighter weight serum. Currently using either Frizz Ease serum, Ouidad shine glaze serum or Cibu serum.

    I have super thick wavy hair but I don't color it. Frizz Ease recently reformulated some of their products so I gave them a try and I love them! (They never worked for me before). I wash and condition, then put some OGX Hydrate + Defrizz KukuΓ­ Oil Frizz Defying Curl Cream all through my hair. Then I let it air dry for a while as I get ready. Once it's just damp, I spray in Frizz Ease Dream Curls Perfecting spray, which gives my waves much better shape and control as they dry. In the summer I used Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air Dry Styling Foam and I LOVED it, but it doesn't seem to work as well now that it's cold and less humid.

    The final touch is Aveda Brilliant Shine-On Shine Spray. It is INSANE. It really lasts all day, calms frizz, and makes my hair super shiny. I've been using it for a decade! It smells great too. It's the only non-drugstore hair product I use.

    I love reading your posts about curly hair! I don't color or heat style my hair ever, but the frizz struggle is real, yo.
