Favorite Hair Products
To be honest, most days I don't put anything in my hair at all. I'm a hippie at heart haha.
I do like to use hair treatments though. Some stuff I love...
Mayonaisse. Yeah, yuck... But oh my gosh it works so well. The smell goes away when you wash it out. Easy as pie... Grab the jar, scoop some out, spread on hair, wait. Nothing to it. I think its the eggs in it, but it works to make my hair shiny and full of volume when I remember to do it.
Coconut oil- put on head, wrap in plastic wrap and blow dry if you want, or just wait... Wash it out and voila. Like a hot oil treatment from Sally's but cheaper and yummier smelling. Might as well spread some on your lips while your at it.
Vinegar rinse- love love love this one. As long as you keep rinsing until it's out, it doesn't leave a smell. After you're finished washing and conditioning, flip the shower to cool water, and poor diluted vinegar down your hair. (Don't get it in your eyes. Trust me. I know from experience...OWWW) keep rinsing in cool water til all the vinegar is gone. It closes and smoothed the hair follicle and will make your hair CRAZY shiny.
As for other stuff I like... Out of all the shampoos I've used, V05 still works the best. Yeah... Those 88cent bottles have magic in them. I have to use way more than I would with more expensive shampoos but it's okay because it's do cheap. Doubles as bubble bath. And the strawberry scent smells delicious and really lasts.
I like to squirt some conditioner in a bottle and add distilled water for a detangler/flyaway tamer/ leave in conditioner.
I also use a detangler comb in my hair in the shower while the conditioner is in. I read that using a brush in your hair while it's wet stretches your hair and leads to breakage and split ends so I stopped that.
Otherwise... Mousse and hairspray if I'm getting dolled up, but not usually.
One exception is Got2b Smooth. Stuff is great, but I've been out for like a year lol.
And for super short hair, Got2b Glued is seriously like hair Elmer's glue. It'll hold anything. Like a Mohawk.
What do you ladies use?
Have you found any products that help style your hair but don't damage it as much as alcohol based stuff?
Fill me in! :):)
