Curly Hair Care

Hey y'all,

Since I am visiting my parent's currently that means it was time to see my favorite hair dresser. Yes, I drive two hours to have my hair cut but it can be hard to trust anyone with your hair. I have been going to the same salon for over 10 years so it is nice to go in and let the hairstylist do whatever she wants since she knows your specific texture.

Today I went in wanting to chop off my hair and came out with shoulder length hair. Here is a picture of my new look:
Curly hair can be a bit of a hassle to take care of so I thought I would share some of my current favorites. Yes it is nice to get out of the shower and not spend hours messing with your hair but we will not discuss the fact that all summer the humidity in North Carolina and I are not friends.

Now I use a lot of products since I have some pretty thick hair that is always in need of moisture. Here is a list of my current favorite products:

I typically rotate shampoo and I am not brand loyal. I always look for moisture or curl care shampoos especially since my hair is no longer color treated. I am currently loving the Pantene Pro-V Curl Perfection line.

After the shower, I apply Aussie Hair Insurance leave-in conditioner to detangle my hair and then use Macadamia Nut Oil's Healing Oil Treatment on my ends. Once that is all done I tend to flip my hair over head and scrunch in my curl products. I start with Bed Head's On the Rebound Curl Recall cream, then add in some John Frieda Frizz Ease Take Control Curl-Boosting Mousse and if I want some more defined curls I will add in some Pantene Pro-V Curl Shaping Gel.

Every two weeks I take the time to deep condition my hair with either the Macadamia Nut Oil Deep Repair Masque or the Aussie Three Minute Miracle. I typically will apply the masque and then put my hair in a bun and watch an episode of TV before rinsing it out. To keep my ends looking well every day I have started to use Pantene's Overnight Miracle

My favorite hairspray is the Tresemme Tres Two hairspray. It is great and very inexpensive. I also love the Sebastian Shaper (and Shaper Plus) hairsprays but the pricepoint makes them more of a splurge and since I don't use hairspray daily I tend to stay with the drugstore brands.

I have yet to find a dry shampoo that I love but I have tried the Suave Dry Shampoo Spray for those in-between wash days but it is not a favorite yet. What is your favorite dry shampoo?

What are your favorite hair care products?
Any products you have tried and hated?

  2. Your hair is so beautiful! I love your new look!

  3. I love Batiste's dry shampoo. Most other dry shampoos that I tried either did nothing or left a bunch of gunk in my hair, but Batiste seems to do the trick! Oh - and love the new 'do :)

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! I am still trying to get over the change!


Thanks for the sweet note!
