Over the years I have purchased and have been gifted a lot of shampoos to try and I keep coming back to the L’Oreal EVER line. This shampoo line is free of parabens and sulfates that can dry out your hair over time. Sometimes those promises to give you big, voluminous hair means that the shampoo is loaded with harsh chemicals that can make your hair feel heavy and greasy the next day. When I use the L’Oreal EVER line shampoo and conditioner, I know it’s going to be a good hair day!
Recently, I have been using the new L’Oreal EVERSTRONG shampoo and conditioner to get thicker looking hair. Even though I have thick hair now, I want to use a product that helps make it stronger and healthier, which is how you get that thick hair look and feel. This rosemary leaf smelling shampoo fortifies hair to prevent breakage after just one wash. I can curl my hair easier and my hair feels lighter with a bit of bounce because it’s that healthy!
While everyone is freaking out about not being ale to get a haircut I’m more concerned about not being able to get my blonde highlights touched up! I’ve been investing in the right products for my hair to keep it healthy until I get a trim. It takes a lot of work to get shiny and healthy hair but it gets easier when you use amazing products like Clairol. It’s a company that has been around forever and there is a reason why.
For years I used Clairol Shimmer Lights shampoo to keep my hair blonde and get rid of the brassy color that happens over time. I like to use it once a week and leave it in my hair for 10-15 minutes while I wash up.
Now I’m even more excited because Clairol has a Shimmer Lights Violet Toning Mask and Shimmer Lights Thermal Shine Spray. The mask is definitely a blondes best friend! After washing your hair leave the mask on for 5 minutes to condition and tone your blonde hair to keep it bright and shiny. It strengthens your hair over time
Every blonde knows that taking care of blonde hair means keeping it conditioned and protected from heat. Shake and spray the Shimmer Lights Thermal Shine Spray onto your hair before heat styling. I like to use it in the morning when I style my hair to help tame frizz and fly aways to get that extra shine. My hair feels smooth and protects my hair from heat tools without feeling heavy or greasy.
I trust the Clairol Shimmer Lights line to keep my blonde bright and shiny! I’ve been using Clairol for a long time. Products in this post were received complimentary but as always, all opinions are my own.
One thing I am loving right now is the excuse not to wash my hair that often. I’ve been trying to keep my hair washing to once a week to prevent any heat damage and keep it healthy. After a few days of dirty hair, I’ve been throwing my hair up in a bun to keep it out of the way. Not only has it saved me so much time but I can notice over time that my hair feels and looks healthier. I’ve been using a leave in conditioner when I wash my hair now because it leaves my hair smooth and shiny. It’s a great way to tame the frizz and make my hair look smooth – the same look that I get when I use a hair straightener. The leave in conditioner goes the extra step to protect your hair from breakage and prevent knots. If you do want to blow dry or use a hair straightener, the leave in conditioner does an amazing job at protecting your hair to keep it healthy too! There are leave in conditioners that you can in the shower and ones to use when you get out of the shower when your hair is still wet. I’m so forgetful that I have both so I can spray my hair if I forget to use one in the shower ha! Leave in conditioners are great for easy great hair days and keeping your hair healthy.
Here are some of my favorite leave in conditioners that I’ve been using the last few months to keep my hair healthy and polished without the heat tools!
I purchased this after reading that so many people use it in their haircare routine and screamed from the mountain tops about how good it was. At the time I was struggling with dry, brittle hair so I wanted to see if it would work. It makes your hair easy to brush, protects from heat, fights frizz and gives you that shiny hair look without a lot of weight. If you are looking for no fuss hair products, I highly recommend this one!
I started to use this product after my shower in the Spring and loved it after just one use! It makes my hair super soft and when my hair air dries it actually looks cute! Not only does it leave my hair looking and feeling really soft, it fights frizz and makes my hair really manageable. Perfect for lazy hair days or days when you don’t have time for hot tools. The spray bottle makes it easy to spray all over and brush it through your hair. I’d recommend using little product because it’s so conditioning and can make your hair feel weighed down with too much product.
This is a product I had never heard about when I got it in my Summer FabFitFun box. I put it in my shower and after a week of forgetting to use it before I got out of the shower, I finally used it. I squirted a bit into my hand and ran it through my hair right before I got out of the shower and went to bed with wet hair. Usually, that is never a good idea but I woke up with soft, wavy hair that I couldn’t even do with all of the hair tools I own. It’s a bit pricey but I don’t need that much product to get moisturized hair.
Holy humidity! It has been a hot couple of days so I am thankful that one of my recent quarantine projects was putting away winter clothes an taking out my shorts out of storage! It feels like Spring flew by because we were all inside while the seasons changed. Now that it is getting warmer, I am spending as much time as I can (safely) outside! Right now I am visiting my parents in North Carolina spending most of my day in the backyard by the pool. In Philly, we have a really nice size backyard so we were eating our meals outside whenever the weather cooperated. I’m now looking forward to my daily shower as a way to cool off but one thing I dreaded was drying my hair. Letting it air dry with the humidity makes my hair big, puffy and super frizzy. I didn’t want to spend 30 minutes with a hair straightener so I needed something that could dry my hair quickly and leave it looking styled without much fuss.
Luckily I was offered to work with Conair and try out their new Knot Dr. Detangling Hot Air Brush. It’s like the similar round brush hair dryers that were very popular a few months ago. After doing some research I read a lot of complaints about hair getting damaged because of the heat and the brush causing a lot of knots. I loved the idea of the product but knew they would not work for me. I’m happy to report that the new Conair version dries my hair quickly and since you can control the heat settings, I haven’t noticed any hair damage. The shape of the brush allows you to dry your hair straight or curled at the end making it easy to change up hair styles. For my girls with thick hair, this hair dryer works on your hair too! I prefer to let my hair air dry a bit before using the hair dryer but when I am pressed for time, I only need to spend around 10 minutes brushing my hair to get it dry and somewhat styled. It only takes me a 6 minutes total to curl my hair when it’s partially dry which is a lot faster than using my round brushes and normal hair dryer!
On my non hair wash days, I have been using the round brush hair dryer in the morning to curl my hair and use heat to tame the frizz caused by the humidity. During the summer months I want to look put together but don’t want to spend time in the heat doing it. Another great feature is how light it is! I’ve heard that other versions are heavy and bulky, the last thing I want is to get an arm workout while I try to dry my hair!
My normal hair dryer is collecting dust on a shelf right now because this hot air brush is all I need to easily and quickly dry my hair! I always use a heat protectant spray before using any hot tools and since switching to a Wet Brush I don’t have any knots in my hair. After waiting for my hair to air dry as long as I can, I’ll spray it with a heat protectant spray and section off my hair in sections to brush dry. I love it! It’s a perfect alternative to straightening your hair and using less heat.
