3 Hair Product Must Haves

There is something so freeing about the word 'Friday,' and I don't think its only because its the last day of the work week. You know if Friday were moved into Tuesday's place I think people would feel better about it. It's true! Something about the way it slips off your tongue... try it... "Frrrriiiiiddddaaayyyy." Now try it with Tuesday, "TUESSSSSday." See? It just doesn't have the same ring to it. But speaking of Friday, happy weekend lovelies! Have any fun plans for the weekend? Kyle's hunting Saturday and Sunday so I plan to soak up some lady-time wine and dine. Some gehlfrans and I also started a breakfast club a few months ago and intend on doing our monthly rendezvous at a little joint in downtown Milwaukee. Last month we ventured out to the Tosa village and hit up Cafe Hollander, but I'm not sure what our plans are for this month's excursion. It's fun testing out new spots in the Milwaukee area so if you have any suggestions I'm all ears. 

Today I'm kicking off the weekend with a little peek of my top three favorite hair products. Frankly, with the cold weather coming up I always find my hair and skin take a toll so I'm constantly on the lookout for new products to help keep it healthy and stylish.

My first favorite product is my oldest and dearest shampoo and conditioner, Shampure by Aveda. I used Shampure all throughout high school and every time I bring it back I am reminded of my younger years. It's amazing what memories certain smells can evoke! Overall, I've had good experiences with Aveda and I love that they don't test any of their products on animals. With an enticing earthy smell, their Shampure shampoo and conditioner have become like a favorite pair of  jeans (you know, the ones tethered and worn but you can't throw them out because they are the comfiest).  Not only does it let me relive my youth, but I found it doesn't make my hair feel greasy or flat either.

Number two on my must haves is a newer one for me. I have fallen in love and I fell fast with the soy HealthySexyHair hairspray. I believe its cousin is the BigSexyHair, which to be fair does hold better than the HealthySexyHair does BUT doesn't smell as heavenly. I like that its a natural hairspray and I know this doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things but the packaging/branding is impressive (I like the colors). I will say your hair (and bathroom) smell amazing when using this and it really is worth the $$$. I know, sometimes it seems dumb to splurge on hairspray, but if you can swing it this one is worth the squeeze. I use ULTA for a lot of my beauty product needs. They usually have some decent deals and you can always find a $3.50 or 20% off coupon on their website. (Speaking of this, they have a buy 2, get 1 free sale going on right now).

My third favorite hair product must have goes out to Moroccan Oil. THIS has become a staple in my hair care regime. According to my hair stylists, you can't buy just any type of Moroccan Oil and quite honestly I can't give you a great answer as to why that is, but I only ask that you trust what I say and look for the the bottle in the picture I posted as your guide. This product has really saved the life of my hair. Being a blonde takes a beating on my hair strands and moroccan oil has helped to repair the quality and overall feel of my hair. What's also great is you can use it on wet or dry hair and all you need is a little dime-sized amount :) And who doesn't love a little coconut aroma that reminds you of sunbathing on a beach. If only it came with a margarita... A little Jimmy Buffett style.

If you're looking for some new products to shake up your beautifying experience, may I suggest you give one of these a try!?! What are some of your hair product must haves? How about favorite haircare scents? Leave a comment below!

Have a safe and happy weekend & visit back on Monday :) 


  1. I am going to have to try these! And will always take a reason to go to Ulta, :-) Love that place! I also use a hair oil that I absolutely love- its Marrakesh Oil. My friend and hair stylist introduced me to it and not only does it smell AMAZING it makes my hair soft, shiny and even helps it dry quicker. Like the Moroccan Oil, you only need a dime size so the bottle lasts a long time. I am also loving Pureology Hydrate shampoo and conditioner especially for the winter months. A bit pricy but do think the quality justifies the price. Also, this is not a hair product but a brush that I recently got and LOVE- its called the Wet Brush. Have you heard of it? Well, it is the best brush I have ever used and is designed to brush through wet snarly hair without damaging it. My hair gets a lot of tangles after running especially and this works like a dream!

    1. I've never heard of that oil before; I'll have to look into it! Where do you get the wet brush from? Ulta maybe? Thanks for the tips! :)

  2. I do not believe you can get it at Ulta but I could be wrong. I purchased mine from my friend and hair stylist who gets them from the beauty supply store. Maybe online? If you can't find it and do want to try it, let me know and I'm sure she can get you one.

    1. Thanks Ang! I will try and find it online first. I will let you know!
