Hi everyone! 2014 is almost here, and I am going to be starting a new series of blogs for the BEST Products of 2013! First up is Hair Care! I’m also going to be doing blogs on the best products for skin, nails, face makeup, eye makeup, and lips of 2013, so stay tuned for those posts!
Loreal Elnett Satin Hairspray (11 oz, $13, drugstores)
The can says it “Disappears at the stroke of a brush”, which is true, you can brush through this after spraying it in, and it does not leave your hair crunchy or sticky. I like to buy the Extra Strong Hold version of this, and my curls last all day, even into the next day when I use it. They do make an unscented version, but I don’t mind the scent. I also like the retro look and feel of this hairspray.
BEST DRY SHAMPOO:
Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Instant Bodifier Dry Shampoo (3.4 oz., $5, drugstores)
The can says, “Instantly refreshes and removes oil for lasting volume and body”, and this is totally true! This dry shampoo is the best I’ve tried, and I’ve tried them all! It has a nice, fruity scent that isn’t too strong. When I wake up in the morning, I brush out my hair, and then I spray this all throughout my roots, holding the can about 6-8 inches away from my head. I then put my hair up in a shower cap to let it “soak in” while I am taking a shower. When I get out, I take off the cap and let my hair down, and my hair is super volumized and looks great!
BEST STYLING PRODUCT:
Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Serum (5.1 oz, $18, ULTA)
This serum claims to “smooth and condition, leaves hair shiny and soft.” I use this when I want to wear my hair straight. I apply about a nickel sized amount to wet hair and blowdry straight using a round brush. This controls frizz, and keeps my hair soft and smooth. You can also apply this to curly hair when it is dry to smooth away flyways or frizz. This serum smells like watermelon and doesn’t leave hair feeling greasy.
BEST LEAVE IN CONDITIONER:
It’s A 10 Miracle Leave In Product (4oz., $15, ULTA)
This product does 10 things for your hair! It is a leave in conditioner, a heat protectant, and a detangler all in one. Not to mention, it smells so good and leaves your hair so soft and silky. I spray this into wet hair right when I get out of the shower, and it feels so soft and smooth on your hair. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about using your hot tools because you are protected!
BEST HAIR MASK:
Loreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm (8.5 oz., $7, ULTA)
This mask “Repairs up to 1 year of damage in one use” and “deeply repairs and reconstructs dry, chemically treated hair.” This mask smells delicious and fruity, and is very thick in consistency. I like to use this once a week, and I usually apply it to my hair after shampooing, and leave it in for around 10 minutes. When you rinse it out, your hair is so soft, and it stays soft and smelling good all day.
So, those are my 5 favorite hair care products for 2013! Are you guys excited for these posts? I think it is fun to read these types of posts about the favorites products for the year.
