For Vol. 2 of Beauty Refresh, I am excited to feature my daily haircare products. You’ll notice from the below photos that I am very brand loyal to (1) Moroccan Oil and (2) Bumble & Bumble. While I haven’t tested hundreds of hair products or brands, these are two that work well for my thick and coarse hair. I use Moroccan Oil hydrating shampoo and moisture repair conditioner (I gave volume booster a try, but it resulted in an excess oily scalp). The moisture repair conditioner is amazing, particularly when my hair is knotty after being in a ponytail or messy bun the previous day. Post shower hair products include three of my favorite Bumble and Bumble picks. I first spray the ends with Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer, which detangles and softens hair (and has UV protectants which is crucial when using a straightener, curling iron or wand!). Next up is B&B’s All-Style Blow Dry. I love this formula because it fights frizz and has oil-absorbing powders that adds volume and shine (sadly, I have oil-prone hair and yes I wash it everyday). Before I blow dry, I spray B&B’s Thickening Volume Hairspray – a setting spray that offers control and hold.
Onto haircare tools. I recently purchased the Conair Infiniti Pro Rainbow Titanium Wand from Target and LOVE it. The barrel coated in titanium rainbow = less frizz and less damage. I love how affordable this version is (under $30!) and the auto off function which is key since I’m especially forgetful in the mornings. My wand tutorial is simple: (1) Section hair into bottom and top layer (2) Wand 1-1/2″ pieces and let set (3) Hairspray (4) Brush out curls with flat paddle brush.
The new products I tested out these last couple of weeks are from Kristin Ess new line, sold exclusively a Target. I was tempted to add all her products to my cart, but settled on two: (1) Finish Working Texture Spray and (2) Weightless Shine Leave-In Conditioner. The scent of these products is amazing – I’ve asked Corey multiple times to just smell my hair…yes, that good! While the beautiful packaging proves otherwise, the entire line is under $20. Included on my next Target run list is the Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask.
