With all of my running around this wide world I have been trying out new hair products left and right. Even now that I’m back home, my shower is filled with different options.
You may recall my obsession with Paul Mitchel Tee Tree products over the last two years. Although I still love them, at some point my hair became immune to their powers. Since the end of fall last year, I have been on a hunt for something I like just as much. And finally, in my last trip to NYC, I found a product that has kept my hair strong and super soft.
My hotel had Molton Brown products (which you know I love) but for some reason it wasn’t working for me. The Gilchrist & Soamies I brought along from a previous trip wasn’t doing the trick either. So when a “Welcome back to NYC” goodie bag arrived at my room, I was thrilled to see several different shampoo and conditioner brands. I tried them all, but only one stuck.
Matrix Biolage Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner isn’t overly fragrant, foams nicely, and the conditioner actually keeps my hair moisturized all day.
I then spritz my wet hair with my other new favorite product, Sebastian Potion 9 Lite (that I randomly stumbled upon in the CVS travel isle) to thicken my baby-fine mane before I subject it to the heat of my dryer and straightener. It all gets topped off with a little Terax Finishing Spray (that I have been using for years now) and I’m done.
Overall my hair takes about 10 minutes to do, which is one reason extensions don’t even cross my mind. I could spend an hour curling those things to only have my head look like a rat’s nest when I left the house. Ugh.
If you’re loving your routine right now, share it below. (Don’t forget to include what kind of hair you have!)
