I have had thick dark hair my whole life so when it comes to hair care and maintenance, I am always looking for the best products but also products that don’t take a long time to use! I have always loved styling my hair whether it’s curling it or straightening it and today I am going to give y’all the scoop of my favorite products I use!
First up, I wanted to share my all time favorite blow dryer with y’all! I got this for Christmas last year and holy cow, it has been a game changer! The 2 things that I love about this dryer is that it dries your hair so quickly because it’s like a brush! I used to never dry my hair but now I look forward to it! The 2nd thing I love about this dryer is that it also styles my hair! Sometimes, I hate curling or straightening my hair especially during the school week and this makes it so easy because it looks like I styled my hair when I just dried it! The ONLY downfall this dryer has is that you shouldn’t use it on soaking wet hair, it needs to be a tad dry before you use it however, I feel like when most of us dry our hair, we have it a little bit dry already so its not that big of a problem.
Next up are my 2 favorite curling irons! The first one is the T3 brand and it lives up to the hype! This curling iron heats up so quickly and curls my hair like no other! With this iron, it does not take a long time to curl my hair which is a must for me. The next iron is a 3 barrel iron and this one is perfect for making the perfect waves! It only takes me about 10 mins to do my hair with this curling iron and it’s such a great price as well!
These next brushes are my holy grail brushes! The Wet brush is so great because it is very soft on your hair! it doesn’t really break my hair which is nice because hair breakage is one of my struggles from putting heat on my hair for so many years. The next brush is less of a brush and more of a scalp brush. I have a very sensitive scalp that is allergic to everything so this brush helps to get all the product build up off. I use this in the shower when I shampoo and its been a game changer.
Not Your Mother’s shampoo and conditioner is my favorite because it smells amazing and leaves my hair so soft! Now, since my scalp is so sensitive, I have to rotate between a few shampoo’s so that my scalp doesn’t get irritated but this one is my favorite to use! When I want a good deep condition, I use the Not Your Mother’s hair mask and I love this one for a deep condition! it leaves my hair so darn soft!
Like I said earlier, I have a problem with hair breakage after years of putting heat on my hair without heat protectant! The past few years however, I have been using this heat protectant and it works wonders on my hair without leaving my hair feeling cripsy or sticky!
Lastly, I love when my hair has volume especially, when my hair is curled! I have tried so many volumizers but the mouse ones always make my hair feel so crispy and others leave my hair so sticky! This one feels like more of a dry shampoo to me that adds volume which is my favorite kind!
