Because You Know Im all About my Hair, Bout my Hair



Today I decided it would be a great idea to share with you some of my current favourite hair products! My hair is long, coarse, thick, curly, dry and fiery red. My hair needs intense hydration when it comes to products. And since my hair needs serious styling products in order for it to actually look nice, I need products that protect my hair as well. I love my hair, though I didn't always feel that way. I feel like it's my most attractive feature so I feel like I need to take care of it the best I can!

Above I have a little collage of some of my go-to products as of right now. Im always looking for the next big thing when it comes to my hair that's in an affordable price range. You can find the majority of these products at Walmart!

1. OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner :: Ever since leaving Hawaii my hair has been in major need of hydration! I new that Argan Oil is a really great product for your hair. I saw this fancy schmancy Shampoo&Conditioner on the shelf and thought I would give it a try! This duo is simply amazing! It lasted me a whole 9 months!! (I got the bigger containers). I can feel the hydration soaking into my hair. Its so fantastic!

2. OGX Moroccan Argan Creme sheer hydration leave-in mist :: This product is BY FAR the most amazing thing I've ever bought. Ever. You spray this on your hair after you shower either on wet or dry hair. I personally prefer the wet hair. It smells ridiculously good! Like you just came out of a salon. My hair feels SO soft and smooth. My hair has changed dramatically by using this product! It also works as a heat protector when you use hair styling tools. I can tell a major difference in my hair when I don't use it. How have a gone this long without something like this???

3. Wide Comb :: Any comb will do. I stole mine from my mom like....6 years ago. And the brand is all worn off so I cant remember the brand. Unless Im straightening my hair, I never use anything else on my hair other than a wide pick comb. It cause less frizzing and helps to keep my curls in tact. It's also great for less breakage, which I am a huge fan of of course.

4. Tresemme Flawless Curls Mousse :: I've tried COUNTLESS numbers of different mousse products. Tresemme has always been a favourite brand of mine. Their products always smell fantastic and they always get the job done! This mouse is really really good for a solid hold. Which, on many occasions I really need!

5. Dove Nourishing Curls Mousse :: I've been using this mousse for a few years now and I can't seem to find anything else at the drug store that is better! It gives me a very natural, but tamed and styled, look to my hair. Which for most days I prefer. My hair feels so soft and fluffy, but not frizzy. It gives me that lovely bounce and curl with that crusty texture that a lot of other mousses give. Love Love Love this mousse!

6. Creme of Nature Argon Oil :: Like I said before, Argon Oil is amazing for your hair. Especially types of hair like mine. It hydrates, smooths, de-frizzes, protects, rejuvenates, and of course makes it smell awesome!

7. Conair Curling Iron :: This curling iron was a total shocker for me. I never thought a cheap Walmart curling iron would be this good! It heats up to 400 and it does it quickly! My hair needs very high heat in order for it to hold. I use this curling iron on my curly hair when I see some strands that lost their curl or have stringed out. I also use this after I straighten my hair to give my hair those nice loose curls. I just wish this iron came in a bigger size!

8. Tresemme Luxurious Moisture Conditioner :: This product is so so amazing you guys!! In just one use my hair feels so smooth and hydrated! It's definitely one of my go-to's!

9. CHI Straightener :: Like I said I need high heat in order for my hair to hold. CHI products have been very good to me. Although I do wish my straightener model went a little higher in heat! But it still does an absolutely amazing job. With a good straightener you can get your hair done faster and it will be way easier to do.


WHOOF!! That was a lot. I left out a bunch of products I use on my hair, but that's only because I'm just using them until I can find my holy grail product! For example :: Hair dryer, dry shampoo, hair spray, and hair masks. All of which I will hopefully be able to add in my next Hair post :)

So I just have a few Tips & Tricks I like to use with my product on my hair. It's worked really really well on me and I hope this helps!


1) I only shampoo my hair about twice a week. The other times it's just conditioner. By washing your hair with shampoo too many times in a week, you are stripping your hair of it's natural oils. So less is more!

2) When in the shower :: while my conditioner is in ( I usually leave it in for 5-15 min, depending on whether or not Im shaving my legs that day ;) ), this is when I comb my hair. It is so much easier to comb through my hair when I have a bunch of conditioner in it. This is the ONLY time I comb my hair. I never ever comb it after my shower or when it's dry. I feel like it cause more frizz that way.

3) When I know Im not going anywhere that day or if I just don't care about my hairstyle, I will put only my Argon Oil and OGX Sheer Mist in my air, then put it in a top knot. I feel like these days are my hairs' healing days. No heat. No damage. I've noticed a huge difference in my hair since doing this. I ALWAYS use to mousse and blow dry my hair after EVERY shower. Not good. If you are someone who does need to do this very often in the week, I suggest buying a very good heat protectant spray. Tresemme has fantastic Heat Sprays!

4) When blow drying my hair, I always have my head to the side or upside down. I scrunch my hair as I blow dry. This give me extra volume and keeps my curls in tact.


If you have any suggestions of products or tips that you think I should try I would love to hear them! I'm always on the search!


And that's all I have for now!!
I hope everyone has a fun and eventful weekend!
