Must-Have Hair Care Essentials
Ladies, there’s a reason people call our hair our “crowning beauty”. Our manes are beautiful! Of course, you want to rock the healthiest hair you can. What kinds of things do you need in order to do that, though? We’re here to tell you exactly what you need to keep your hair looking its best. Here are the ten products every woman needs on her quest for perfect hair.
Leave-in Conditioner or Treatment
Does this sound like an unnecessary step? It’s not, we promise. Using a leave-in conditioner or a leave-in treatment will help strengthen your hair from breakage, hydrate it, and help you detangle your hair. Convinced?
A Great Brush
A good brush is important, because it can help distribute your natural oils. They’re also helpful in styling, because they can create a really sleek look or help you boost volume.
Another idea is to look at wet brushes. They help you brush your hair while it’s still wet, and they won’t pull or rip your hair out.
Oil of Some Variety
Oil can work magic on any type of hair. It’s not just for thick haired ladies. Thin, fine hair can also benefit from oil; you just need to use a different amount. Oils can add moisture, ease frizz, and they can even help cut down drying time. From high end brands to drugstore brands, there’s an oil out there that will benefit your hair. Especially blonde ladies! Did you know there are lavender oils that will help keep your platinum striking?
This is crucial. High quality blow-dryers really change the game. They get hotter, which is important because salon quality dryers get much hotter than other brands. They’ll cut your drying time in half, too!
One of the best things about heat protectants is that sometimes they double as primers or blow-dry expressers. They cut your drying time, help your style hold, protect your hair from heat, and they help you keep your style for a few days. Who wouldn’t want to try one of these? There are loads of multi-tasking heat protectant sprays.
One of our favorites is: Got2B Mind Blowing Xpress Styling Spray. Budget friendly, and it works just as well as a higher end product.
Like we really need to educate you on the benefits of dry shampoo. Most of us don’t wash our hair everyday, especially since it isn’t healthy for your hair. Dry shampoo gets rid of the excess oils, freshens up our hair, and can even help re-style it. There are options for all kinds of hair, and even colored ones!
Ceramic Round Brush
just like the blow-dryer, a quality brush will ease your hair drying routine. Plus, it’ll help your style last longer. You can create curls, waves, or simply make your hair as sleek as you can! It’s all about the tools, ladies.
Shampoo and Conditioner
Choosing the right combination for your hair is crucial! It’s super important to start your hair right, especially if you plan to style or you have treated hair. If you’re unsure what nourishment your hair needs, try a simple moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. If you have fine hair, simply skip the conditioner. The shampoo will add moisture, and your hair will be left feeling light and fluffy. Win-win.
Curling Iron or Preferred Hot Tools
We’re obsessed with this essential. A great curling iron or a solid straightening iron are the cornerstones to amazing hair. Ceramic curling irons or straightening irons can help your hair feel smoother, sleeker, and keep frizz on your ringlets at bay.
Last but not least, arm yourself with a fantastic hairspray. It’s the finishing touch for any hairstyle. Flexible hold is our favorite because it’s the least likely to get crunchy in your hair. You can use it in an updo, or in your everyday styles.
