I feel like I’m the last person who would give any type of advice on hair. The closest I’ve come to being a hair dresser was when I cut my best friends hair in 7th grade, put it in a plastic bag and hung it on my cork board in my bedroom. She clearly had to have it fixed and was in so much trouble for letting me do it (we were such bitches, we blamed in on our other best friend).
Buttt.. I’ve gotten so many DM’s about my hair I figured I might as well share what I use.
I’m pretty sure I’ve had the same curling iron and straightener for the last maybe, five years. I love them and they haven’t died yet. Usually my previous ones have only lasted me like a year.
Its A 10 – Miracle Leave in Product // It’s expensive, but worth every penny. Husband of the year bought me the extra large bottle because he was so sick of me making him always pick up the $12.00 bottle from CVS and going through it so quickly. I use it every night when my hair is wet. Wether you let your hair air dry or blow dry it, it is amazing. I don’t think my hair could survive without it.
I know, the straightener is a little on the expensive side but I think all good straighteners are expensive. I mean, it’s lasted me five years so far so I don’t even mind how much I paid for it. My mom was going through these straighteners she would buy at TJ Max and would return them because they didn’t work or they would break right away. You get what you pay for.
I usually use this for bigger, more full curls. It’s actually quicker for me to curl my hair than straighten it because I don’t hate it when it’s messy.
I would share what brush I use but it’s just a normal brush that I’ve had forever so who really cares. Aren’t all regular brushes the same?
I’m currently on a Kiehl’s Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo and Kiehl’s Sunflower Color Preserving Conditioner kick. I love it, obsessed actually. It’s like a vacation for your hair and you get out of the shower feeling like heaven. They always have deals and a little goes a long way for both of them, it’s the price isn’t always what it says.
