Current Hair Care Favorites

I'm fairly low maintenance when it comes to my hair and I HATE the feeling of product and weight in my hair. Which makes it incredibly fun to find some good products that add volume and texture. But my hair is stick straight, pretty thick and has no natural volume whatsoever, so I've ventured out into the world of hair care AKA the hair section of ULTA and Sephora these last few months and have found some really great quality products that I've been putting to the test and loving. 

One of the questions that I get the most is how I get my hair to look the way it does. 

 A) Aveda hair color has completely changed my hair and I have an amazing stylist who does great color. My hair hasn't been as thick and healthy as it's been the last 6 years when I started going to an Aveda salon.  
B) I know what works with my hair to keep it healthy. For me, this may be totally sacreligious in the beauty blog world to even type, but.. I don't use your standard in-shower conditioner. I've tried too many and they add too much weight to my hair and I've always loathed the way it feels. So since 2007, I've used this leave-in condiditoner religiously. Like, every. single. day. And it's all I use conditioner-wise. For me, it's been life-changing. And my stylist can't even believe that that's all I use. 
C) I curl my hair almost every day and when I do, I use high quality volumizing products to give my limp hair some lift and some texture to really get the curl to hold. 

I read about this product a while back and found it literally for $4 at Kohls in the clearance section last Fall. I eventually forgot about it and went on thinking I didn't need a texture spray.. until the holidays happened and we were packing for Colorado and I wanted something travel sized to take with in my cosmetic bag. 
Enter: the most amazing texture spray to ever exist. A little goes a long way in adding some grit and volume to your hair but it's been a total favorite the last few months. Most days, I spray my curls with a little bit of this before work and even on my long days, it still manages to look fresh when I get home. I never even knew that was possible. 
It's also good for a little mid-day hair pick-me-up, too. It just really gives your hair that little oomph that it needs to look amazing and back to life at 3 p.m.
I am most certainly going to be re-purchasing the big bottle now that I'm nearly running on empty. 

I found this gem at Ulta after reading the rave reviews about how great of a volumizing product it was without making your hair feel heavy. I've used it and loved it nearly every single day since I bought it a few months ago and I can honestly say there's a noticeable difference in the volume of my hair on the days I use it. It's so lightweight and I adore it. 

I never fancied myself a mousse girl, but this is the one that changed all of my thoughts on this. And boy, does it add some volume! My sweet and VERY hair savvy friend, Katie, recommended forced me to run out and buy it and I have loved what it's done to my boring, lifeless, stick straight hair. Especially on the days I curl my hair, I feel like it just takes me hair as high as heaven and this Texas girl is NOT mad about that. 
I don't use it daily and I really only use it when I want a LOT of volume because this one seriously packs a punch. In the best of ways!

And last but certainly not least, The Moroccan Oil Luminous Hairspray Strong I've used religiously for the last 2 years and it truly deserves its own blog post about why it's my favorite. It's that good. First of all, it smells amazing. Not an hour passes that my husband doesn't mention how great my hair smells when I use this. But more than that, it gives a flexible, strong hold to my curls and makes my hear feel so soft and healthy at the same time. 

I hate a stiff hold with my hair spray where I can't run my fingers through it and make it look a little less "done" and this one is just the ticket to that "I just woke up with hair this good" kinda curls. 

What hair products have you been trying and loving recently? Any that I should add to my list? Let me know in the comments below. 

Happy Wednesday, friends! Make it wonderful.
