Heya Fellow Gurus!
Now that we are nearing the end of July and the unfortunate end of Julamorous, I thought that I would start off my favorites for the month of July. I always have so many favorites a month and choosing 5 in each category seems to be the way to go. These are my top 5 favorite hair products of July. I am always buying different hair products, whether it’s because of packaging brand, or type. I use a lot of hair products, because I enjoy styling my hair all different ways. My hair is medium length. It used to be mermaid long, but I wanted a change a year ago. My hair touches th bottom of my shoulder blades on my back. It’s a good length to style all different looks. My hair is dark blonde with highlights and low lights. My roots are on the brown side. but grows out dark blonde probably from the sun. I’m always outside enjoying the rays and my dogs. My hair tends to get oily on the scalp after the 2nd day of no washing. It is a bit on the fizzy side and is layered, although they are close to being grown out. I was my hair every 2 to 4 days depending upon the season, what I am doing, and if I have dry shampoo. So, without further ado, my top 5 hair picks of July are as follows:
1. Dry Shampoo: My current love is TRESemme FreshStart Dry Shampoo Volumizing for fine/oily hair. First off, my hair is thick and not very fine. Due to my layers, it thins out the thickness, but it is still not fine by any means. I still love this spray though, because it soaks up all of the excess oil. I just wish that the formula was a bit more powdery. It is great for my darker roots though. I give it a 4 star performance out of 5. I just shake and do short bursts. I rub my hair to soak up the oil and I have lift and dry hair in no time.
2. Frizz Shield: I mentioned my frizz problem right? Well, you knew I would mention at least one product of this nature in my favorites. My current obsession is Avon Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield For All Hair Types. I love using this one on my damp hair as a preventative measure. When I want sleek hair, I make ure to use this after a shower. It’s an oil like consistency, like a serum and I just comb the product through. I do not apply this to my roots, because I have oily hair. I give this 5 stars for performance. I do notice a difference in how sleek my hair is after using this. When I want super sleek hair though, I add something extra.
3. Oil Treatment: Remember when I mentioned something extra? Yep, this is it. A hair oil tames away the frizz on my flat ironed or curled hair. My current favorite is M Moroccanoil for all hair types. This light weight oil is a great addition after styling my hair to fight the frizzes. I make sure to use a tiny amount and add the oil to my ends first before applying it to midshaft and down. Keep this away from roots! It can make your style look greasy and weighed down. This adds bounce and a great scent to my hair. I give this product 4 stars out of five for performance, because it can be greasy if you aren’t careful.
4. Beach Hair: Everyone loves beachy waves. They look boho and lock in the laid back feel of summer. My current love affair is with Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa UV Absorber Malibu Waves Spray For Hair. Let me start off by saying that the smell of this stuff is ah-mazing! It smells like summer in a bottle with citrus hints and real sea water. This is the best perfume for your hair! Not only does it smell fantastic, but it gives the best effortless beach waves. My hair is naturally wavy, a bt more on a curly side of the wave. So, I do not know if I am the best judge for beach wave sprays, but I find that it holds braid waves without the crunchy feeling of hair spray. I give this product 5 stars hands down. You will not be disappointed.
Hair Treatment: Wow, it seems that 3 of my favorites revolve around my frizz problem. lol. I did not plan it that way, I swear! My current love is Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Re Moist Intense Hair Treatment. For the life of me, I can never smell the almond, but the peppermint smell is exhilarating. For the price, this stuff lasts a long time. I have used it a dozen times and haven’t made a dent in it. I scope out two half-dollar sized globes and start with the ends up to my roots being sure to comb everything through. I use this after the shower as an overnight treatment. I rinse it out the next day. It makes my hair really soft and smooth. I have been using this for 12 weeks and have enough for at least that many more. I use this every one to two weeks. This perks my hair up when it needs it. Heat tends to dry hair and the ocean. I make sure to use this after a day in the sun or ocean I give this 5 stars for performance and value for the price.
Well, those were my top 5 favorites for hair products. Stay tuned to see more favorites. I am open to suggestions, so please leave a comment. What are your favorite picks for July? Make a reply blog post and link it to my blog so I can see it. I would love to find a new hair obsession.
