Holy Grail Hair Products
Hello there! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and have a fabulous week ahead! I was so shocked when I realized Thanksgiving is this week! This is the first year in soo long that I do not have to wake up at 5am the day after Thanksgiving to work Black Friday sales and I am loving ittt.
Today I am going to share with you all my holy grail hair care products.
I have always had super thick hair and for as long as I can remember I have been treating it with highlights, ombre, balayage.. all of the big hair trends of the times! With all of that treatment to my hair and how thick it is, I put a huge priority on what products I use in my hair.
I had always done that thing where you just test out a new shampoo and conditioner brand each time one ran out and I never found a brand that I loved, just a few that would do the trick. My hair salon started carrying Kevin Murphy products and I picked up some travel size samples to test out the product. Peyton prescribed the “hydrate” formula to me.
Before I started using Kevin Murphy, my hair was so damaged and dry that the ends would be brittle and dry after I got out of the shower and before I could get to blow drying it. The whole process was always a nightmare. I would have to tug on my hair and pull because it was so dry. But guys… immediately after using Kevin Murphy Hydrate for the first time, my hair was SERIOUSLY transformed. I hadn’t exactly gotten a hair cut in a while but my hair felt so healthy and full of moisture. Now, every time I use Kevin Murphy on my hair it feels like I just walked out of the salon. My hair has never been so healthy!
After going more and more blonde every time I went to see Peyton, I noticed she kept using Shimmer Me Blonde before she would dry my hair. It smelled soo good and I had just recently ran out of heat protectant spray and she says “its sparkly too!” ahahaha.
When I took the plunge to pull through my natural color and do away with the blonde, I asked if this product would still be beneficial as a brunette and she said yes because it is still a heat protectant and just targeted towards blondes because of the color protection benefits! So basically- great for brunettes, extra great for blondes.
Kevin Murphy products are only sold in select salons and can be found at Stone House Salon.
Enough of Kevin Murphy, let’s talk Living Proof.
I have heard people rave about the anti-humidity spray but was skeptical that it would not work for me because of my naturally frizzy and humidity prone head of hair. One day I was scrolling through amazon and thanks to the whole “one click purchase” feature, the next thing I know the Living Proof anti-humidity spray was on my door step. I was like okay okay alright alright, I will give it a try. And oh my golly. 2017 must be the year of the winning hair products because this product has for sure made my “what three things would you take to a deserted island” list.
I spray this in my hair before I blow dry, before I style, and before I dry shampoo (if it is just one of those days). Probably over doing it, but one can never be too safe! My hair is significantly more smooth when I style after spraying this and withstands humidity even through a spin class.
Just before I started using these products, I can’t even remember how many times I just wanted to shave my head. Hair care is definitely something to invest in, especially with thick long locks like mine!
“With great(thick) hair comes great responsibilities”
It goes something like that.
