Hello friends Hope your Tuesday is going swell. I just got back from a coffee date and some shopping with one of my best friends. The guy at Starbucks is lucky he’s got his looks going for him, cause let’s be honest, my name ain’t hard:
Megern? Megzn? Megerz? I give up? The java was delicious, though, props.
I’m off of work today so I’m cramming as much socializing in as I possibly can. I hit the gym early, grabbed lunch, applied for some jobs (a workout in itself…) and headed out. I had a post planned for yesterday, then I realized it was Valentines’ day and I doubt anyone would wanna hear me rant about the large mop-like creature living on my head. Sometimes I refer to it as my hair, but only when it’s well behaved. I know hair care goes much deeper than just products, but I’ll get into that aspect in another post.
People often ask me what products I use on my locks, and to be honest, it changes all the time. There are only a few things that I’ve been absolutely loyal to for a while. Just like my love life at the moment, I just can’t commit. I’ll share with you the three that I have stuck with for the longest amount of time, though. I should also mention that Dr. Bronner’s hair lotion is awesome as well, but I’m currently out of it and I really haven’t missed it all that much so I really don’t have any reason to purchase more until I run out of something . Not wanting to buy something? What am I, a dude or something? How unladylike of me.
1) The Body Shop Cottenseed Serum. This stuff is apparently “heat activated” but I use it whether I’m heating up my hair or not. Truth be told I’d never let a blow dryer near my hair if I’m wearing it naturally because if I did, I’d have Jeff Corwin trying to wrangle it.
I love this when I’m on the run and just letting my hair air-dry, cause it gives it a nice glossy finish without feeling heavy and greasy and you only need a teeny bit. It’s also super lightweight (just like me!) and won’t get crunchy like some curly hair products do. Crunchy curls are sooo 1999.
2) Josie Maran Argan Oil (or any argan oil for that matter.) It’s like a leave-in conditioner for me. Argan oil is beneficial to hair and skin. Although I’ve never used it on my skin, I swear by it for my split ends. I trim my own hair most of the time, but when I don’t have time to, this does a pretty legit job of hiding the frayed ends. It smells really good, too. I apply this evenly to my ends about once a week – I usually use 2 pumps for all of my ends.
3) Goldwell Shine Spray. Definitely my go-to when I straighten my hair, it gives a nice gloss and has literally no texture or feel to it, it’s kind of like hairspray without the hold if that makes any rational sense whatsoever. After I’ve done a nice singe-job to my locks, I spray about 2-3 pumps and swoosh my hair through it like a fancy hair commercial. Classy!
I’m off to spend some time with my fam!
What’s your favorite hair product at the moment?
Does Starbucks ever butcher your name?
Peace and love!
