Top 5 Favorite Hair Products

When it comes to my hair, the easier the better. As long as my hair isn't clinging to my head like a dead rat I'm happy. These products help to give my hair a little more life while keeping things simple for a hair amateur.

The first product to kick off any sort of hair routine was the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray. YouTube video after YouTube video kept warning me about the damage caused by daily blow dryer use. My hair has never really shown any signs of over blow drying, but I thought might as well have an insurance policy just in case. A few spritz of this and I feel better about constantly blowing my hair dry. 

Dove's Fresh+Care Dry Shampoo is the first dry shampoo I've tried to actually do something to my hair besides make it feel gross. It smells good and adds enough volume in my hair to give it a little life. I don't think it's the end all be all dry shampoo champion, but I'm quite the happy camper with it. Plus it's hella affordable.

Without any help or encouragement, my hair is stick straight and incredibly fine. Growing up I swear I had Hermione Granger's hair from the first few movies, but since then it's gone flat and lifeless. I've finally found three products that give texture and oomph to my hair where countless other products have failed.

Up first is the least effective of the group but still a downright lovely, affordable option. The L'Oréal TXT It Tousle Waves Spray gives my hair enough grit to give it some bounce. I'm sure on most hair it would add a nice amount of wave and body, but I'm quite happy with the little something extra it brings. My favorite part is the smell. Some mornings I use it just because it smells good. It doesn't weigh down the hair in the slightest either.

My two newest hair product favorites are from Bumble and Bumble. I've been wanting to try their products for over a year now but couldn't stomach the price without knowing if it would work on my stubborn locks or not. Sephora had a value set of a number of the products I've wanted to give a go so I scooped it up and couldn't be happier with my findings.

The Bumble and Bumble Texture (Un) Dressing Creme helps to give the roots a bit of grit and some much needed texture. My hair no longer looks pin straight with this stuff. I don't get Alexa Chung hair like I would like, but I definitely get as close as I think I'll ever get. It's definitely a build up to your desired look kind of product and I'm looking forward to experimenting to find the perfect amount for the ideal look.

My holy grail hair product is definitely the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray. This stuff seriously works. Applied to wet/damp hair then blow dried hair gets more volume, texture, and has that lived in look I've envied for ages. It also smells like Smarties which thrills me an absurd amount. The best part? It lasts all day. The entire work day I have full, long bob perfection. It's a dream come true.

What are your favorite hair products?

  1. The Dove dry shampoo is the best one I've tried yet, I like that it doesn't leave a cast of white! I really want to try the Colab one though :)

    Style Sunrise ☀


  2. I love Bumble and bumble products they are fab::: im using the no oil hair products the shampoo and conditioner: like the look of the bumble and bumble thickening hairspray


  3. I just tried out the L'Oreal spray. It didn't really wow me, but it did give a nice bit of oomph. And like you said, it really does smell great. What I need to do is just buckle down and get the B&B texturizing spray. I keep hearing it's the best, but never take the plunge.

    OH - and yes, I finally got on the Dove train for dry shampoo. It's the best!
