Y’all know I’m not a real blonde, right? Yes. Everyone does! haha!
I actually have this complex – as a blonde, I dream of luxurious, shining brunette hair.. and as a brunette, I long for the tan days of summer and being blonde.
My hair dresser loves me. Truly! Because she’s taken me from the darkest dark to the blondest blonde… 3 or 4 years in a row now…… AND MY HAIR IS STILL HEALTHY.
How? I can’t spend a fortune on hair products (my daughter’s hair is platinum blonde, which also requires a lot of care & upkeep!! Double $$$ so I try to save where I can).
These 5 products save my life, every week. Bonus: they’re all super affordable!, and I have linked them all at the end of this post if you’d like to try them out!
- Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo.
This saves me day in and day out from over washing, and over drying. I actually very rarely blow dry my hair, and if I do, only the roots. I never go to sleep with wet hair, either. I hate sleeping with wet hair, and it always looks weird in the mornings.
I love this dry shampoo because it doesn’t make my scalp feel itchy, and even when my hair is brown, it is easy to tousle and blend in so my hair doesn’t have white splotches. It also smells so good! I use the sea salt dry shampoo variety, and I have for the last two years. I’ll never use anything else!
- OGX Argon Oil.
I put this on my hair every single time I wash it. It truly saves the ends of my hair! This season’s blonde didn’t require a trim until the 3rd upkeep appointment. I attribute that to this oil! AND! It is under $10!!
- Conair 1 Inch Curling Wand.
I seriously get people asking me how I curl my hair all the time. When you’re hair is as stick straight as mine, people notice (I guess) when you have the best looking curls in the room. 😉 My curling wand is under $20!
- Not Your Mother’s Sea Salt Spray.
Another NYM product that I absolutely cannot live without. The beach wave curls are my favorite, and I use the same technique for my hair every time. Curl with wand, lightly hairspray, sea salt spray, scrunch with fingers, hairspray again. Perfect hair EVERY time.
- OGX Texturizing Hairspray.
This is light weight, and doesn’t make my hair feel like I have hairspray in it at all. I love it! The hold is so good, that I can sleep on my curls and they’re still in tact the next day (and sometimes the 3rd day, if I don’t workout). Highly recommend! Another find Under $10!
So there you have it, my favorite products for keeping my super processed, constantly changing hair (I’m blonde right now with bits of lavendar and rose pink) healthy! And… yes… I have been pinning luxurious, shiny brown hair colors like crazy this week (sorry, Lisa… maybe).
