Beauty CRUSH: Hair products

I’ve totally changed the way I care for my hair this year! Starting in January I was determined to make this the year I got my hair healthy and LONG! I’ve always wanted long hair but could never get past the breaking point and it doesn’t help that my hair grows slower then anything! I honestly haven’t colored my hair in 6 months and it’s not ubber obvious ’cause of my slow growth!

First thing I changed? No more conditioning! Say what? I know! I know! When you think of repairing hair and making it super healthy I bet the first thing you think of is CONDITIONING! I did a lot of research on line and after hearing that conditioning wasn’t a must I tried it and LOVE IT! This will make more sense later in the post.

Let’s start at the beginning… If I was going to cut out my conditioning I had to get a great shampoo to compensate! That means Sulfate FREE, great ingredient and gentle cleansing! Harition and Hair One both had what I was looking for! Hair One by the way is a “Wen” knock off! These products are both sulfate free and work a little differently. Hairition is a shampoo and works like normal shampoo and even lathers. Hair one is a cleanser that doesn’t lather but also doesn’t strip hair of it’s natural oils. I did find that I needed to make sure I rinsed thoroughly when I used the Hair One! Rinse, rinse, rinse but man oh man, talk about silky hair!

$$$: Harition $5, Hair One $12 Sold at Sally’s Beauty

Ok! So now that I have clean hair, how do I keep it healthy especially if I’m not using traditional conditioning trends! ANSWER: Marrakesh Oil!  Because my hair leans more to the oily side stopping conditioning was a good step. But that left my ends at risk for damage. Marrakesh oil is the perfect solution. One small squirt of this rubbed into my palms and then on my ends was a great way to quench and smooth my ends and make it manageable. This is my new favorite product! Can’t live without!

$$$: $12 sold on Amazon

In addition to my oil I loved using RUSK Sensories Leave in conditioner. A tiny dime sized amount is all I need and I only apply it to the ends of my hair. Growth below my ears. This is a natural botanical product that helps eliminate static, conditions and works as a sunscreen for your hair!

$$$: $19 for 33oz. Sold on line or in some stores.

And there you have it! My new hair routine! That along with less frequent washing, styling and coloring and I’m well on my way to the healthy hair I’ve always wanted! I have some fun styling tricks I’ve been using that help with styling and cutting back on heat and damage! Stay tuned!

What hair care products do you swear by?

    I use Marrakesh oil too and love it! I’m going to have to give the no conditioner thing a try. Did you find it hard to brush your hair when it was wet? If I don’t use conditioner, the tangles are so bad. Maybe the good shampoo helps? Thanks for sharing your product selections!! xo

      I thought the brushing would be a problem too but it hasn’t been an issue. I start by brushing out the ends first and them going higher and higher until I am at the roots. It helps!

    I’ve been looking to do something different too and I’ve tried different products that left my hair super oily. How long can you go without washing your hair after using this?

      I used to have to wash every day but now I can go two days for sure and a third day with dry shampoo if I really want to stretch it!

    I’m thinking because im 50% italian and I’ve got brazilian in me–I’ve got killer hair genes?! My four girls have awesome hair too. We pretty much can use anything–right now we are loving the Suave knock offs. They come in the green bottle -I pick them up at Target. We all use the Tresseme Heat Tamer before we use the flat iron. We all use that to curl our hair-and it keeps it curled and cute for 2-3 days. If we get a little oily we use the Suave dry shampoo spray. Again-we’re just a lucky bunch with good genes.

    This regimen continues until you have achieved your preferred weight.
    In my opinion, the hair color isn’t much to get excited about as they only offer two choices,
    dark brown and mahogany. HCG helps to reset the hypothalamus gland so that the
    dieter will be unlikely to sense intense appetite or maybe
    have cravings when they are at their new body weight.

    breast cancer. A summary of the findings on the surface AGREE with the older studies in that participants lost a similar amount
    of weight but other factors show how the older
    studies may have been skewed. In fact, by the time an individual reaches his or her forties,
    stress and anxiety tend to build up. You might have heard about HCG injections that help you lose excess fat
    quickly when h – CG is injected. In order to start the day with more energy it is important to eat breakfast
    within 1 hour of waking up. A new resource type – potions –
    is added to the mix, and your battles against fellow land-grabbing monarchs
    has just become more complicated. Some of the serious side effects of h – CG
    that have been reported are:.
