I have been posting SO MUCH hair care lately that it’s only appropriate to do a Top 10 Hair Products post. Even as I sit here typing this I’m thinking of all of the products I forgot to include in this. There are easily enough for a Top 20 so I’m going to keep this post to my most recent discoveries of faves!

In no particular order:

  1. Redken. Lately this brand has really been on my radar, mostly thanks to my husband (see Favorite Hair Product for a Man below). First off, I’ve been using their Texturizing Sea Spray* ($ // ULTA Beauty) and Braid Aid* ($25.00 // ULTA Beauty) on my daughters hair. She has this very silky, fine hair that is impossible to deal with for styling. Braids, updos… nothing ends up working out or lasting because her strands slip out. I use the Sea Spray all over her hair and brush it through (not saturated, but misted) and then put some of the Braid Aid on my fingers as I work on her look. It’s been a Godsend!
    I’ve also been playing around with their Frizz Dismiss line* ($8.50-$35.50 // ULTA Beauty) and have been loving how it’s keeping my frizz to a minimum this Summer My hair is manageable with this, and that, I like. This is sulfate & sodium chloride-free.
  2. DermOrganic. Leave-In Spray Therapy* ($20.00 // ULTA Beauty) has been fabulous for when my hair is curled and I want to run my hands through it to separate it up a bit. This product adds shine to my strands without weighing them down.
  3. Living Proof. If a Perfect Hair Day* ($26.00 // Sephora) is all you need then you’ve found it! I’m a huge fan of this brands No Frizz line ($15.00-$36.00 // Sephora) and Perfect Hair Day is just as fabulous to smooth into wet or damp hair to help keep your mane in check during the suffering of the weather. 😉 (Review).
  4. Peter Coppola. The Keratin Concept Legacy Collection* (Review) kept my hair in check during 118 degree Las Vegas heat. It doesn’t get more impressive than that. Purchase at petercoppola.com.
  5. Keune. The line is fabulous for helping my hair look less oily. It’s extremely impressive how well it does that as well as keeps frizz at bay. Find a salon here to purchase. (Review).
  6. Nora Ross. Garlic Shampoo & Conditioner* may seem intimidating, but there is no garlic smell and the benefits are insane. Very clarifying, very hair softening. Purchase on the website. (Review).
  7. Sebastian. Potion 9 ($18.95 // ULTA Beauty), y’all. I got this in a beauty sub box and haven’t let it go since. It’s a must-have styling product if you’re into flexible hold.. which I am. I also love their Shaper Plus Extra Hold Hairspray ($10.00 // ULTA Beauty) for times when I needs me some hold.
  8. Suave. Popping mousse in my hair is the best way to get my curls to hold all day long. My go-to for awhile now has been Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Mousse* ($6.49 // Walgreens). Pop some of that in wet hair, brush through, blow dry… get to stylin’.
  9. Biotera. I did an entire post on awesome dry shampoos and Biotera Invisible Dry Shampoo* ($7.69 // Sally Beauty) is one of my top picks from that post. Great at absorbing that nasty oil and making you look like you actually washed your hair that day. No residue, no problems!
  10. CLEAR SCALP & HAIRâ„¢. The Intense Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner* ($4.99-$5.99 // Target) have been instrumental at fixing up the scalps and chlorine damaged hair of the women in this house. Affordable and a must-have for a Summer hair fix! (Review).

Favorite Hair Product for a Man: Redken For Men Firm Grasp Texturizing Clay ($19.00 // ULTA Beauty). My husband, he is a diva. He loves that this holds but doesn’t make his hair look overly-styled and crunchy.

Hair Products I Want to Try: Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo ($7.99 // ULTA Beauty). I read a ton of reviews on this line awhile ago but haven’t had the chance to try it! It’s on the list to get at ASAP!

Also this week I’m testing outmystery hair care! Any guesses as to what it is? I won’t even know myself until the end of the week!

Frizz Fighter: Peter Coppola Beauty Legacy Collection

Press Sample

Nothing about my hair says manageable. The top is thinning, thanks to past pregnancies. “Oh, it’ll stop falling out after 6 months”. Lies. Because it’s thin grease shows even more than it usually did, yet the bottom is still a bit fuller and frizz central. My hair is officially bipolar. I’m extremely careful about the products I use because I can’t put anything that would be an oil near my crown, but I need the extra hydration at the root which can travel up the hair and towards the crown. I have a few frizz fighting faves but for this week’s Makeup Wars post, Frizz Fighters & Volume Makers, I wanted to feature a new beauty line from Peter Coppola.

This line from Peter Coppola Beauty is called the Keratin Concept Legacy Collection and is called the hair anti-aging revolution! The products are meant to give you that salon-quality hair at home (which we hear a lot about products so I bet you’re interested to see how this went over on my temperamental mane *wink*) that will not only smooth and give off volume but that will also restore that youthful look and texture.

Below is a Travel Kit which has 3.0 fl. oz. sizes of the Sulfate-Free Smoothing Shampoo, Total Repair Smoothing Conditioner, 2 fl. oz of the Just Blow Blow Out Spray, 1.5 oz. Steel Medium Hold and Control Hairspray and a small brush that you can flip open to use on the go. These were all housed in a clear bag, ready to toss in your suitcase for any type of travel.

I loved how the shampoo and conditioner smelled and my hair felt incredibly soft – even at the ends! For my style I let it air dry a bit (my ultimate frizz test) before spraying on some of the Just Blow Blow Out Spray (which is a heat-activated frizz fighter). After that I blew it completely dry using a round brush. The Blow Out Spray was fantastic for drying my hair completely and a lot quicker than I’m used to. I ran my T3 Micro Twirl through it to complete the look and smooth it a bit and blasted the Hairspray at the root for a little more volume.

In addition to the Travel Kit full of products I was also sent a full size of the Just Blow Blow Out Spray ($24.00) and a full size of the Anti-Frizz Cream($30.00) which isn’t as thick of a cream as you’d imagine. I’d call it more of a serum, but it’s not quite as runny as one. It was a texture I wasn’t used to in my frizz fighting arsenal, but I found I liked it better and it really worked at keeping the frizz at bay.

I want this man to come live and create things in my house and also do my hair for me every single day. His products are phenomenal and I’ll be making sure that all of them are stockpiled in my house for these wretched, humid months.
