Morrocanoil extra volume shampoo, Morricanoil extra volume conditioner, Head and Shoulders Citrus Breeze 2 in 1. If I could have a fourth it’d be Morrocanoil light.

The Harmon Face Values version of Paul Mitchell’s tea tree shampoo, the Herbal Essence naked dry shampoo and naked cleansing conditioner have been major staples lately.

John Masters Organic Palmade (it’s more for frizz and shine), Carol’s Daughter Hair Mask (the gardenia one), and because I live in a really expensive place in Europe and can’t afford to get my hair done professionally, Garnier Hair Dye in Medium Golden Mahogany Brown, which is a nice natural shade of darker reddish auburn that’s not too warm or fake.

Hm…

Whatever shampoo is on special on the supermarket

Manicare bun pins (it counts!!!)

La Biosthetique smoothing serum of the ends, sometimes.

Clearly, I am not much of a hair product person! 😀

1. Epically Epic’s Argan Oil Mist: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67039431/custom-scented-argan-oil-mist-for-hair I LOVE that you can mix up your own fragrance! The scent actually lingers pretty well. It works pretty well as a dry oil spray too. It does contain silicones, though, so those who get build-ups easily may want to tread carefully.

2. L’Oreal Elvive Smooth-Intense Smoothing Serum: I’ve been using it for a really long time. Well, if
your hair is very frizzy and you can tolerate silicones, this is a good, affordable option.

3. Olive oil: I know it’s a really heavy oil and it’s easy to overdo (seriously, if you’re not careful you’d end up semi-waterproofing your hair), but it does a wonderful job taming my fried, bleached ends. I usually apply a few drops on damp hair followed by my Elvive serum.

Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum (what a mouthful), Aveda Glossing Straightener mixed with Moroccan Oil applied before I dry my hair or let it dry naturally.

Mine are Liz Earle Hair Oil which I am actually prefering to Morrocan Oil at the moment, John Freida Frizz Ease Serum and John Frieda Heat Activated styling spray.

Good question! My scalp has been really dry this winter and Paul Mitchel Tea Tree Shampoo has helped. Nexxus Anti-aging extra protein conditioner works great and smells lovely, and Alterna Bamboo dry shampoo spray in Mango and Coconut helps when I just recently washed hair but it looks a bit greasy.

Sebastion Re-Shaper Hairspray – cautiously optimistic that my search for the perfect hairspray is over. Redken Heat Styling Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion – makes ALL the difference to the condition of my hair after I blow dry. Lastly, Redken Color Extend Radiant 10 Multi-Benefit Spray – the best leave in treatment I have ever used.

Chopped my hair uber short and so it’s all about texture now.
1. T3 dry shampoo – I think this is discontinued and I’ve been buying and hoarding cans off eBay for the past year . I can’t find another dry shampoo that even comes close.

2. Schwartkopf Osis+ Flexwax or Aveda light elements texturing cream

I love Joico Color Endure shampoo and conditioner and Aussie 3 Minute Miracle (I’ve been using this one for years). The Joico is new to me (a recommendation from my mom) and is seriously the best shampoo for keeping the color in my dyed red hair. Knocked Redken and Paul Mitchell out easily.

Im really loving the Kenra smooth system right now. It includes shampoo, conditioner and serum. I can’t find it at any store right , so I have my stylist (who introduced it to me) get it .

I started using the Curly Girl method (no sulfates or silicones) about 8 months ago, and it has made a tremendous difference in my hair. I’ve been able to grow my hair longer than ever in my life.

My favorite products (too hard to pick only three, as all four are essential to me) are
– Deva Curl No Poo
– Deva Curl One Condition
– Deva Curl Light Defining Gel
– Deva Curl Styling Cream

Lush Retread conditioner (which I don´t use as a conditioner but a treatment due to the creamy consistency and moisturizing properties) and natural oils like avocado oil or jojoba oil

One of the top three products for hair is Loreal Elseve Hydra Collagen Masque, I love this one, it’s new.. I usually used L’oreal Elseve for damaged hair which was pretty good, too. After washing my hair I use L’oreal Elseve extraodinary oil for coloured hair and Ice Cream argan oil treatement. My favs!

I just bought it so I’ve only used it once, but Fekkai has a new(?) line of shampoo/conditioners with argan extract. I’m not gung-ho argan as a rule, but it was marketed as repairing so I was interested. Holy crap my hair felt so nice all the way down the shaft, and my ends ALWAYS feel damaged and rough. I haven’t used it enough for it to be a must-have just yet, but it’s the most excited I’ve been about a hair product in a long time!

L’Oreal Feria deep conditioning treatment
Clear Hair and Scalp Therapy Shampoo for color treated hair
Living Proof Prime Style extender for when I blow dry my hair straight.

My hair is super processed so I need to take extra good care of it. I use a Hask leave in protein treatment every time I wash it, as well as some kind of smoothing hair oil. Right now I’m using Beauty Protector protect and oi, which I got in my Birchbox. It’s pretty great. I also use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle – that stuff is amazing! Better than anything I’ve ever tried, and way cheaper too!

Alterna bamboo style dry shampoo- one of the few that doesn’t make my hair look powdery, Fructis finishing paste-so easy to use, and makes my ends look soooo much healthier, and Chi heat protectant.

A 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner; I’m currently using Herbal Essences Naked Cleaning Conditioner, and I really like it. Smooths my hair, isn’t heavy, rinses easily, and around $6 for a huge bottle.

Any random brush.

Ponytail holder.

I don’t heat-style my hair on a regular basis, nor do I use styling product often, so I don’t have much damage. I also use non-peroxide hairdye, and trim my ends regularly. Spending a ton of money on “repair” products is completely useless; as with skin, once damaged, there’s nothing that can be done. The best thing to do is prevent the damage in the first place.

Wen Sweet Almond Mint Re Moist Intensive Hair Treatment, Macadamia Oil, and Living Proof Prime Style Extender + Living Proof Full Thickening Cream…I couldn’t pick just 3!

1. I’m completely biased, but my Pretty Little Elixir Vegan Hair Masque, which I use after coloring.
2. DermOrganic Spray Therapy – vegan heat protectant and it makes your hair feel like silk and helps it to dry faster. It’s made with argan oil.
3. Rock Your Hair Bombshell Powder. It gives me volume, which I need!

Tresemme keratin hair mask
organix Brazilian keratin therapy serum
avocado oil (I use it on my skin and hair- its really great. I use cold pressed pure food grade)

H&S Sensitive Scalp Care with Aloe, Dove Nourishing Oil Care treatment conditioner and… a comb?

I recently bought some MoroccanOil stuff but am as yet still undecided if it’s a must have…

Since I already answered this on Facebook, I’m going to list 3 others (mwahah, cheating)

-Neutrogena Triple Moisture deep recovery hair mask (love this, better than Macadamia Oil’s IMO)
-Coconut oil for a pre-wash leave in
-No. 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect (this is a super sexy scent, I love it)

My top three at the moment are:
1. John Frieda Frizz ease serum
2. John Frieda Frizz ease miraculous recovery strengthening triple creme
3. Charles Worthington Front Row Heat Protection Spray

1. it’s a 10 keratin spray
2. dove dry oil shampoo and conditioner (very moisturizing, leaves my hair really soft and smells good too!)
3. weekly treatment: neutrogena triple moisture deep recovery mask (HOLY GRAIL! makes my hair so sparkly and shiny and healthy!)
