Still sharing the same haircare tips, tricks, fashion news and much more bi-monthly, only now from a new location! Working behind the chair in downtown Saint Cloud at The Color Loft. – 1025 New York Avenue
Let’s talk about hair products; people either love them or hate them! Everybody has different hair, that’s why finding what product’s work best for you and your hair comes down to trial and error. Now that doesn’t mean I can’t lead you in the right direction for what might be best for your hair type! I’ll go over some of the products I use for myself and clients at the salon. Just remember; when your spending time and money in a salon, to accomplish the hair of your dream’s, you should also consider what products to use at home. Home care consists of a quality shampoo, conditioner and products to enhance the blow- drying experience, shine, and fullness of your hair. Its very important to take care of your hair properly every day, not just at the salon. I promise you’ll thank me later when your color last longer and your hair feels softer!
Post shampoo hair loves a little leave in spray. Just a few sprays and it easier to comb through your luscious locks. Most that help with frizz, have heat protection and are protein rich.
-It’s a 10 -Miracle Leave In
-Paul Mitchell – Marula Oil 3in1
-AG – Remedy Spray
When I’m blow drying someone’s hair, the first thing I reach for is, Dimond Oil Glow Dry by Redken. A little goes a long way. Not only does it speed up the blow-dry time, but it also adds a tremendous amount of shine to the hair. I mean come on, who doesn’t love soft shiny hair?!
When applying any product to wet hair, it’s always best to comb or brush your hair after to ensure that the product gets through your hair evenly. Products won’t do their job unless all your hair gets some product love!
I cannot stress these two words enough! Before you even think about bringing that hot tool anywhere close to your head there better be some heat protection applied to your wet or dry hair. Most will add some shine but more importantly, your hot tool of choice, will burn through that product before burning your pretty hair!
-Matrix – Vavoom Gold Heat – Iron in control
-Paul Mitchell- Hot Off the Press
We can all use a little hairspray in our life I don’t care what you say! There’s hundreds out there but these are my top three.
Light Hold- AG – Frizz Proof
Medium Hold- Kenra – Hi Def Hairspray
Hard Hold- Paul Mitchell – Extra Body
Are you still trying to achieve those beach waves you see all over social media? All you need are these few products!
AG Tousled Texture
This spray is the BFF your beach waves need. Light and dry spray to give you the perfectly messy look while also adding body.
AG Texture Gloss
I refer to this product as liquid gold. Heavy enough to moisturize and help with frizz while holding your curl. Yet light enough to still have movement throughout your hair. The best part about it is that it can be used both wet and dry.
Living proof – TBD Cream
It stands for Tame – Blowout – Deconstruct. If your hair is tough to blowout straight put this in wet hair and then blow dry. I love this on second, and third day hair! Apply to waves to help define them or use as a styling cream for twists and braids.
Those of us who have curly hair know it’s both a blessing and a curse. When it behaves, there’s nothing better than full bouncy curls. When its acting ornery, watch out! Thirsty, frizzy hair is never cute but with the help of these curl enhancers you’ll be the cutest! And yes, there are products out there that will help your curls while also leaving them soft to the touch.
-Label M – Curl Cream
-Redken – Curvaceous
Now I only have one recommendation for this category because this is my absolute favorite. You’re hearing this from a girl who has tried every dry shampoo out there on the market! It comes in different tints for your hair color, absorbs oils, adds volume all without it making your hair feel gritty and even dirtier!
-AG Simply Dry Shampoo
