Okay, folks. Let’s get real. When it comes to my haircut and color, Theresa is my main gal. I usually go to see her every six weeks and my hair thanks me for it. That said, it takes two to tango. I need to keep my hair healthy and well-maintained between visits to the hair genius. These are the three products (and steps) I cannot live without.
Step One: Immediately post-shower, I spray my hair with this. My cousin gave me this leave-in treatment a while back and I loved it some much that I’ve since replenished my supply. It’s a 10? More like a million. This stuff works. Use it on clean, damp, towel-dried hair.
Step Two: After I’ve given my hair some time to dry (I try to avoid using a hairdryer whenever possible) but it’s still a bit damp, I use this. If you use any type of heat (blowdryer, flat-iron, curling wand), you NEED to protect your hair. You wouldn’t go to the beach without SPF, would you?
Step Three: I usually spray this the morning after I’ve washed and styled my hair. And sometimes in the afternoon. Okay, I use it all the time. It’s a great alternative to dry shampoo, which doesn’t always work on me because most of brands turn my hair white. (Black/blue-green/white combo doesn’t work very well for me.) It gives my slightly curled hair some texture and keeps it from looking too finished or polished.
Don’t forget to use a shampoo for color-treated hair if your locks are dyed! So… what are your must-have hair products? I’d love to know!
