These are the hair products I'm currently using. I guess I'd call two of them (dry shampoo & coconut oil) definite favorites, but the other ones do the job. I'm constantly switching out my hair products when I run out because I'm still trying to find the ones I can't live without. You can buy the products below from multiple places, but I'm just going to link to the retailer that I bought them from.
- Not Your Mother's Way to Grow Shampoo & Conditioner: I'll admit, I'm not sure if this is a favorite or not, but it is what I'm currently using. I have a love/hate relationship with this stuff. I know sulfate-free shampoo is supposed to be better for your hair, but when I was trying to wash out my coconut oil treatment, this stuff didn't do the trick. I would've had to use a whooole lot to get it all out. And the conditioner is not very thick. It's kind of puffy-looking like marshmallow cream, but without the thickness. So in the shower I'm cursing my choice of buying these. Later, when my hair dries, I think it may be softer than usual. Maybe with these I'm destined to hate the washing/conditioning process, but like the results.
- Batiste Dry Shampoo (Original): On days when I don't wash my hair, I use this. I used to use Not Your Mother's, and actually only picked this up because Ulta was sold out. An employee told me it was their best seller and I had heard good things in the blog world. I was intrigued by all the different scents and varieties this comes in, but I stuck with the original. I actually ended up loving this soo much more than the Not Your Mother's (which is what got me to stop washing every day in the first place). I never skipped more than one wash day before, but I've skipped three using Batiste, so that's saying something. (So unfortunately I've noticed that while this is great for my hair, it isn't necessarily for my clothes...when I was at graduation I kept randomly noticing dust on my black jumpsuit and couldn't figure out where it came from...it took me a looong time to realize it was the dry shampoo. I touch my hair pretty often, so that sucks. I wore a black dress to work last week and noticed it again too.)
- Nature's Way Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil: I love using coconut oil on my hair. Once a week or so (important: only when my wash day is the next morning!) I work this through my hair with my hands. I try to make sure it's saturated pretty well. I sleep with it in my hair and I wash it out thoroughly the next morning. It makes my hair feel so soft! I've only bought this once, and this is the brand I bought. I assume most brands would work the same.
- OGX Argan Oil of Morocco: On days when I wash my hair, I put a small amount of this in my hand, rub my palms together, and rub this in to the ends of my hair. (If you use a lot or put it too far up from the ends, it might look greasy.) This small bottle has lasted me months. If you follow the link, you'll see they even changed the marketing since I bought it (mine is called Argan Oil of Morocco, it's now called Moroccan Argan Oil). When I was looking for this on Target's website, I saw this and now I'm tempted to give that one a try.
