Rather than subject you to every single dingle deet of our trip back from New Orleans (it'll come out eventually, you know me) I thought I'd deviate from my usual non-vapidy post topics and tell you all about my hair. It's called expanding my horizons and I'm seizing the moment here. I can see those eye rolls and they are ugly. Thank you.
1. Kirkland Signature Professional Salon Formula Moisture Shampoo: I try to switch it up but right now - this is working just fine. The only shampoo I've ever hated was that Moroccan oil shampoo in the blue bottle - that and my hair hated each other. Hated.
2. Kirkland Signature Professional Salon Formula Moisture Conditioner 33.8 Ounce Bottle: Costco, again. I'm sure everyone knows to shampoo your roots and condition your tips (well from my neck down) - works for me, unless I forget to rinse the shampoo which I do more than I care to admit.
3. Tresemme Keratin Smooth Infusing Serum: I picked this up at Target this winter when my hair looked like a broom stick stuck in a socket - static central. I just put a few pumps onto the bottom half of the hair before I blow dry. Love it.
4. Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing and Texturizing Powder: I've linked to this SO many times but I love it. I sprinkle a little on 1/2 way through blow drying. The best.
5. Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer: Nothing special. This thing is on it's last leg after 5 years. I know there are super fancy dryers out there - I guess I don't know what I'm missing. I thought it was super quiet when I first bought it but I'm sure there are new ones on the market that make mine sound like you're standing next to an airplane propeller.
6. Conair Round Brush: I use this to blow dry my hair - the comfort grip has been gnawed off in a joint effort by Bash and J.
7. Redken Thermal Setting Mist: Kelly Jo told me about this and I'm so glad I heeded her advice and purchased. It works wonders to help my (sad!) hair hold some curl. I spray it on each piece before I curl it. It sounds more labor intensive than it is.
8. Remington Pearl Ceramic Curling Wand 1 Inch - 1.5 Inch: Just like the dryer - I know there are nicer brands/models on the market but this has been working fine for well over a year.
I recorded the most rambly mumbly dummy "tutorial" (yes, in quotes) for you. It won't help a soul but I spent an embarrassing amount of time recording and rerecording after deleting clips and trying to placate a needy Theo.
I know I'm not an expert. I have thee flattest, most volumeless, limp hair in the world and this sort of works for me. I go a few days between washes and just re-curl a few pieces if I'm going to venture out into a public setting if I don't pull it back into a bunny tail or horse braid which I do quite often.
If you have any hair help recommendations -- I'll take them and run. I love a good hair miracle worker or nine because I'm low maintenance like that.
