Hair Care 101

Beauty Finds
Over the past few years I have found some beauty products that I can't seem to live without! Here are some of my all time favorite hair products that I think you will grow to love too! If you have any questions about the following products post a comment below or you can send me an e-mail:

For my daily hair regime:          

I start off by using the Malva Blue Shampoo by Aveda. This is a great shampoo to use every other day if you're a blonde like me! I combined a nickle size amount of the Malva Blue Shampoo and a
regular shampoo such as (my favorite) Biolage Hydrating Shampoo by Matrix and massage onto scalp leaving it in my hair for 5 minutes. I saw amazing results right after using the blue shampoo by Aveda it literally takes the brassy tones and yellow tones out and your left with a nice beach blonde color that we all tend to love! It also smells amazing. Aveda products are all organic which is just another great excuse to love this shampoo even more. Yay for green!

Blondes and all other hair color: 
Biolage Hydrating Shampoo by Matrix smells amazing and is great for hair that has been processed or that's damaged. When using this shampoo you can tell the difference between this shampoo and other shampoos because this one doesn't leave your hair feeling dry and brittle because it's actually re-hydrating. If you have tend to have problems with greasy hair this shampoo is great because it's a clear shampoo and not a cream. No more worrying about build up!

2. Condition

One of my all time favorites Biolage Conditioning Balm by Matrix.
This stuff really does an amazing job at re-strengthening your hair and bringing it back to life again. I will use this almost every day and this will last you a few months (if you have medium to long hair). You can also use a different conditioner every other day to make the product last you even longer! I suggest applying from ends to roots and really working it into your hair. Leave in for 5 minutes for a deep conditioning!

3. Style

Before styling I recommend using these nifty styling products to really show off that beautiful hair of yours!

If you are going to use a Flat Iron or Curling Iron:
First after blow drying or air drying your hair, apply a dime sized amount (for medium to long hair) of  Sleek Look Smoothing System By Matrix starting at the bottom working your way to the top of your roots. Making sure to spread evenly so you don't end up with too much product on one area of your hair! This is a great product to use in the summer when it's humid outside and also in the winter time. Curl or flat iron.

Next apply Super Skinny Serum by Paul Mitchell starting with the ends of your hair and than applying to any loose fly aways. This will really help flatten those fly aways and create a nice glossy shine. This also smells super fruity and delicious! Running a little behind this morning? Spread this throughout your wet hair, and it will allow for faster drying time!
