Today’s post is not typical subject matter for Come Home For Comfort. I am not a beauty blogger and I have no aspirations to become one! However, I am constantly asked what products I use on my hair. I figured if so many people are curious – you might be interested as well! It is really important to know what kind of hair you have. That might sound funny, but our hair does change as we get older. I have a completely different head of hair than I had 10 years ago! I used to have thick, coarse, straight hair. In my late 20’s I found my hair changing to a very fine, dry (and still straight) texture. I take care of and style my hair much differently now, and that makes all the difference in how it looks. If you have hair like mine…here are the products I recommend, in the order I use them every day. They can all be purchased at the drugstore or Target – no expensive stuff here!
- Shampoo: Herbal Essences “Hello Hydration”
- Conditioner: Herbal Essences “Body Envy”
(Sometimes I switch it up and use the Body Envy shampoo and the Hello Hydration conditioner) 🙂
- Mousse: Aussie “Aussome Volume” in maximum hold
- Dry Shampoo: Suave Professionals “Salon Proven”
Aussie “Aussome Volume” Finishing Spray in maximum hold(updated 4/16: I now use and love Pantene Air Spray in #3 hold)
The product that has been a game changer for me is the dry shampoo. I have to wash my hair every day, so I never use it as a “second day refresher” like many do. Before I tease or style my hair, I lift my hair in sections and spray the dry shampoo at the roots. Once I work the shampoo into my hair, I style it and finish with hairspray. The magic of the dry shampoo is that my hair holds the style all day long…which I found to be nearly impossible otherwise. Dry shampoo for the win! If you have any questions or want to know who cuts my hair, please email me (comehomeforcomfort at gmail dot com) or use the contact form. I’m happy to help!
