5 Must-Have Products for Strong Hair
For the past few months, I’ve been trying to grow my hair back out. Although I do totally love the short locks (shoutout to my hairdresser, she kills it every time!) I’ve just always loved the look of long, healthy hair. Because of that, I’ve been experimenting with hair products to see what works well for me and I’ve found five products that I just can’t live without. These hair products help make my hair strong, healthy, smooth and keep it protected from damage!
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle Leave in Conditioner
I’m not lying when I say I truly cannot live without this stuff. I received a sample size in a Birchbox and actually purchased the full-size version after the first time I tried it. Whether your hair is highlighted like mine or all-natural, a leave-in conditioner is a must. I spritz this one, which is good for daily use on any hair type, all over my damp hair before combing it. It instantly detangles, smoothes my hair and helps protect it from damage. I don’t have enough good things to say about this leave-in conditioner!
Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil-Mist
Another product that I instantly fell in love with, this oil mist is part of my weekly routine! I typically spray it all over my hair right after I get home from work, put it up in a bun while I exercise or relax, then wash it out in the shower. The all-natural oil mist leaves my hair feeling smooth, soft and shiny after just one use.
Living Proof Full Thickening Cream
As someone with fine hair, I’ve tried many thickening creams and sprays to try and give my hair a little extra volume. Most leave my hair feeling heavy or greasy, or they just don’t work at all. Luckily, that wasn’t the case with Living Proof’s thickening cream. Simply apply a little bit to your hair, avoiding the roots, and either blow it out or let it air dry. You’ll definitely notice an extra boost of volume in your hair after using it!
Ouai Texturizing Hairspray
This one took me some getting used to because I couldn’t decide if it’s more like dry shampoo or hairspray, but after using it a few times I’ve realized that it’s the perfect combination of both. Whenever I need some extra volume at my roots, I spray this on and rub it in to achieve an instant boost. It’s super lightweight and won’t leave a residue on your hair or hands like some dry shampoos do. Added bonus: it’ll make your locks smell fresh and clean, even if it’s second-day hair!
Drybar Hot Toddy Heat & UV Protectant
An important step that you should never skip in your hair routine is heat protectant. I absolutely love this one by drybar, that protects hair up to 450 degrees, helps repair split ends and prevents damage. All you gotta do is apply a tiny bit from roots to ends and then style however your heart desires!
