Not only will they help you hair grow like a weed but it also helps to strengthen your nails. They have 800 mcg of Folic Acid which all women of child bearing age really should be taking a Folic Acid supplement if it’s at least the only vitamin you take. Here are the CDC Recommendations.
Okay now that we are taking something on the reg to help us grow our hair long and full let’s talk about some products. Now I have colored treated hair (just a “few highlights”) right isn’t that what we tell everyone?? I also have a lot of hair but it is thin. I’m also a firm believer in large in charge hair so I like volume.
Let’s talk about what to use when we suds.
Pureology Volume Line
Don’t let the price tag on Pureology freak you out. I’m not joking when I say (with how long my hair is) a bottle lasts me almost 6 months. Okay you are right I only wash my hair 3-4 times a week but still! This stuff lasts forever. A little goes a long way! It took some time to get use to a shampoo that didn’t suds up but it is sulfate free–>translation there are sulfates in floor cleaners…..not really what you want putting on your head and absorbing right? 100% vegan, no animal testing and has an anti-fade complex. I swear after the first time of using it, I’ve never gone back to sulfate containing hair care products.
ABBA Volume Shampoo & Conditioner
I alternate between Pureology and this line ABBA Volume
. Ladies if you have trouble with volume, you will not after trying this line. It is a naturally thickening shampoo and conditioner and I was blown away with the results. Sulfate free and it smells amazing. Slightly less expensive than Pureology.
Redken Extreme Strength Builder
Twice a week deep condition your ends with this Strength Builder
. A good reminder for me is the days I shave my legs…..I mean…..anyways. Put this on your ends and let it sit while you do the rest of your shower chores. Rinse it out and marvel at how smooth your ends are. Decreases split ends and let’s your hair grow long and strong! I have had this tub for well over 6 months. A little goes a long way. Best hair care purchase ever.
Feed Your Shine Hair Serum Drops
I was given this sample
by the folks at Organaca and I am still really digging it. Kind of smells like dirt when you initially squirt it out but it doesn’t linger and my ends have been so strong from using it!
The name speaks for itself. I spray a little bit into my hands and then run it over my ends. Your hair will dry smooth and look like you just got a keratin treatment. Also protects your strands from heat. I put it on when I know I’m going to be out in the sun. You can snag it of course on Amazon here
(btw Amazon what is up with this low budget picture?? I could take a better one with my iPhone).
Last but not least.
Do not let the price tags on the Aveda sprays freak you out. First of all they have amazing customer service. My nozzle on the last spray did not work I walked it back into the store and the girl was like “just go and grab another one off the shelf….oh and here’s a travel size for you inconvenience”. If you want to try it out before making the plunge buy the travel sizes. I still haven’t used all of my little ones yet.
Redken Powder Grip
This powder grip is the bomb diggity. Put some of that powder on the crown of your hair…give it a little tease and you will have the Toddlers in Tiaras jealous of your poof.
John Frieda Dream Curls
Remember those Houdini Frizz-Ease Commercials??? Those crack me up. Go from frizzy mess to this!!! Yeah alright….you may have fooled me when I was 14 but I’m wiser now. However this dream curls product is tried and tested from the teenage years. I spray it on my hair when it is wet and telling me that it wants to be curly. Do you ever have one of those days where your hair is just telling you what to do??? Like if I get out of the shower and it’s already starting to curl I’m like “okay hair I’m listening I’ll get the dream curls” (trust I know I’m weird). Spray that it in and on low heat scrunch your hair until it’s dry. You will get those great beach waves that are not frizzy (see what I did there) and have great staying power. Plus it’s like dirt cheap. I’ve purchased this so many times I’ve lost track.
ALTERNA Bamboo Dry Oil Mist
Finally you need to shine up your ends. I got this Alterna dry hair oil spray in a Birchbox forever ago. I spray a tiny bit in my palms and then smooth it over my ends. Amazon (of course) has it the cheapest here
Final note. This doesn’t all magically happen on a daily basis but when I do have an event or something that I need to pull it together here is the final result.
Phew that was a long one! You know what guys do? Wash their hair with the same stuff they use for their body and call it a day am I right? What products do you swear by? Let me know I love feedback do you like these products posts or are they a skip and check yah tomorrow kinda thing?
