And here we have the last of the 2019 Favorites posts: haircare! It’s only been since early-mid 2019 that I’ve put more effort into actually caring for my hair. It’s taken a while to learn about my hair and figure out its quirks. Over the past year I’ve finally found some products that work for me though, and here they are!
Batiste Dry Shampoo
This is the first dry shampoo that I’ve found that actually works for me but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Usually it’s the super high end brands that extend my wash time, but this one does just as good of a job as my Amika one or my Oribe one.
Not Your Mother’s Sea Salt Spray
Sea salt sprays of all kinds are great for adding volume, which my poor hair needs direly. Particularly when it’s been a couple of days since I last washed it. It doesn’t get super greasy anymore, but it definitely gets flat. I just spray it at my roots and rub it into my scalp a little bit. It looks great after that!
Ouai Leave In Conditioner
Leave-in conditioner saved my butt. I swapped over to using leave in conditioner instead of showering with conditioner. It decreased my greasiness levels significantly! This one is thin and smells amazing. I’m super picky about high end products because they often smell like salon.
Get yourself a Wet Brush and thank me later. I never thought a hairbrush could be so amazing, but this thing just glides through my hair. I barely need any detangling spray to brush my hair after a shower! It’s extremely worth the $10 you’ll pay for it.
Great Clips Tea Tree Shampoo
My husband and I had this in the house for him when I started wondering if a clarifying shampoo would be a helpful thing to try for my poor greasy hair. Lo and behold, this works almost exactly like what people say about the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo. And it’s a tiny bit cheaper at that.
