BEAUTY CABINET: HAIR ESSENTIALS

Every morning I wake up & hop in the shower -- 1) it wakes me up 2) my hair is usually super greasy & 3) I tend to sweat + I think I sleep in weird funky ways because some mornings I wake up with a serious hot mess on top of my head. not a pretty site at all. ha oh & 4) I have OCD tendencies such as having to shave my legs every.single.morning.and.night. yes it is that bad.

I am always curious about others beauty routine, so I thought I would share what hair essentials are in my beauty cabinet. On most mornings, I hop in the shower & use my all time favorite shampoo, TRESemme Anti-Breakage or Silky + Smooth shampoo & conditioner. I have been using these for what feels like forever & when I do try to switch it up I always end up coming back to them. 

I usually dry my hair 99.9% of the time & my absolute favorite leave-in conditioner is It's A 10. It you have not tried this, seriously you need to run to your local beauty store & get yourself a bottle, because it really is THAT amazing. It tends to be a little pricey, but when my bottle is half way gone I put a little water in so that it lasts even longer. IT'S A TEN.

I have gone through SO many hair dryers & for whatever reason I just can not convince myself that spending hundreds of dollars on a hair dryer is at all worth it. But much to my dismay I found a keeper that is only $30 dollars your local Target. It is the Conair Infiniti Pro Hair Dryer (mine is actually orange, not pink) & I love it. It leaves my hair feeling silky + smooth & I have had less breakage since I started using it 6 months ago. 

There might be 10 days out of the year when I will walk out of the house without straightening my hair. I use to use a Paul Mitchell straightener, but it went kaput last year & I purchased this 1 inch ceramic iron from Ulta & it works wonders. Oh & LOVE this after party cream. You only need a tad & I mean TAD to keep your fly-aways awayyyyyy. anymore than that & you will be a grease ball. 

Ok, so I am going to let you in on a little secret. i love batiste dry shampoo!!! ok, I am calm now. But seriously,  I have started washing my hair less + using this stuff more because it really is awesomesauce. Some people complain that dry shampoos makes your hair thick or turns your hair grey. Let me let you in on another little secret. it doesnt make your hair thick & rub it in + there wont be any grey!

For curly days, I use a 1 inch ceramic hot tools curling iron & John Freida sheer blonde hair spray. & it lasts a majority of the day.

Hope you enjoyed my beauty cabinet. What is in yours? Have you tried any of these products?
