Cold weather, especially lately, takes a toll on our hair. End the cruelty on your luscious locks and try a few of these hair care products!
Wash, rinse and repeat. Washing your hair with a good product is the first step to keeping it healthy. I have found two brands that have shown results for my dry and frizzy hair. The first is the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine shampoo and conditioner. All Garnier Fructis products smell beautiful and this one doesn’t fall short. After a shower, even before putting product in my hair, I feel the softness.
The next shampoo and conditioner that I like is the Biolage Ultra Hydrasource by Matrix. Although the Garnier Fructis product works well with my hair, Matrix does wonders. If you’re someone who has naturally dry hair or if your hair takes a lot of damage from straightening/curling/blow drying etc. this product is the answer.
The Garnier Fructis shampoo and conditioner can be bought at almost anywhere, though I typically buy it from Target. Matrix is also found at Target, but I always buy mine from Ulta. It’s a little on the expensive end, but if you buy the 33.8 oz bottles it lasts. Ulta also does a buy two get one free special, so I’ll buy an extra shampoo because that always seems to run out first.
Haircare doesn’t stop in the shower. These next few products are for after you get out. Both are by the brand OGX and I’ve used both of these products since high school–they’ve never let me or my hair down.
The first product, and also the first that I put in my hair after a quick towel dry, is the Moroccan Argan Oil Weightless Healing Oil. It’s a 4 oz bottle that you spray in your hair. I use this product first because it’s light and helps loosen the tangles in my hair. I spray a little on the sides of my head and on the top of my part.
The next product and step is the Extra Strength Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Hair Oil. This is a 3.3 oz bottle that I drop a pearl size into my hand and run through the bottom half of my hair and the ends.
Both of these products are great for your hair alone, but work even better together. The spray adds shine and detangler, while the oil fights against frizz and also strengthens and moisturizes. These products are also good for the summer because they both protect hair against UV damage.
Another little tip for anyone who has long and thick hair like myself–I’ve noticed that after I stopped using a brush to run through my hair after a shower, and started using a wide toothed comb, my hair started feeling and looking healthier.
These are just some awesome hair products that are out there and work. I currently use the Matrix shampoo and conditioner and both OGX products!
If you already have products that work well with your hair keep it up, but if you’re struggling with what products to use, I 10/10 recommend trying some of these.
