Favorite Things: Hair Products

Happy Monday!

Monday's in the Summer always seem a little brighter :) 

Today, I am linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals to share a few of my favorite hair products.

It can be a chore taming this unruly mane of mine. I am constantly on the look out for the latest & greatest in frizz prevention.

Typically, if I take the time to fix my hair, I wear it one of two ways. 
I think the best way to share this is to highlight what I use for different looks.

First, I wear my hair straight. 

 Which is easy for most people, but it takes me a good while to make this curly mop sleek and shiny.
Right after the shower, I have to start "fixing" my hair. 
When I blow dry, I always rely on this to protect my hair from the heat.

Tresemme is a go-to and extremely affordable on a college student's budget ($3.99 @ Target)

Then I use this conair blow-dryer to completely dry. I try to use my brush to get it as straight as possible before using the flat iron. 
Conair Infiniti Pro AC Motor Dryer
(see the instyle rating?)

 For straighteners, I use the wet to straight by Conair because it does the best job. I know the Chi seems to be the go-to, but it doesn't seem to work well with my hair when I have tried it. After straightening, I apply hairspray to hold it from humidity. 
This is currently my favorite kind: 

Garnier® Fructis Style® Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray - Ultra Strong Hold - 8.2
A Steal for $2.99, plus I love the scent :) 

The second, (and my more natural) look is curly. 

This is my current go-to because it puts less damage on my hair. My hair is naturally curly, but unruly, so I tend to it a little.
I take showers at night if I am going to do curly, and sleep with my hair damp.  As soon as I get out of the shower I comb through with my wet brush and add the Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls. This brush is a lifesaver!

If I feel like it needs it, I use my diffuser to get the moisture out. I put it in a top-knot.

When I wake up, I hit it with the diffuser again to get all the moisture out.  I will put in hot rollers on the bottom layer to set while I do my make-up, and then take my styling wand to the top & front layers because they're a little to short for the rollers. ( You may be thinking hot rollers? Is she a mamaw?? hehe, they work so well for this thick hair, that I can't resist them) 

I take the rollers out after they cool, or right before I leave the house. I shake my hair out a bit and spray so it won't fall too much.

For shampoo and conditioner, I prefer the Argan oil products. But I am not loving this brand. It seems like it is watered down. I am searching for a new "favorite" shampoo & conditioner... Please feel free to leave any suggestions in the comment box ;)

Check back this week to read all about my Florida vacation. 


  1. I love my Conair hair dryer and Garnier has the best scents! I have wavy hair but tend to shower at night if Im going to straighten it the next day, funny. Im going to have to try the Pillow soft curls, Ive heard good things about it.

  2. I Love the pillow soft curls! It's expensive, but a bottle will last me about 6+ months :)


Thanks for reading, I would love for you to share your thoughts :)
