Hair SOS - Love your Locks

At this time of the year my hair is always super dry and needs some extra love. In the summer I let my hair air dry as much as possible which really cuts down on damage - but in winter I blow dry it almost every time after a wash just so that I don't freeze when I go outside! This combined with the cold does a number on my hair. Below, I've rounded up some of my favorite products for protecting my mane: 

1. Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask 

This is THE best hair mask I've used - and smells so good (their whole line smells amazing!). I was hesitant to get it at first because of it's price tag - but I finally splurged and can vouch that it's been worth it. I use it twice a week if I can but lately have just been using it once on the weekend when I have some extra time. Wash your hair, then apply (a little goes a long way) - I start at the ends and work my way about halfway up since my roots don't need much help, and let it sit for about 30 minutes. The jar says 5-7 minutes but I like to let it really work it's magic!! Another thing I do is use my Wet Brush (the ONLY thing that works on my tangley, colored treated hair) to distribute it through my hair. Then I rinse with cool water, and follow with conditioner. It is really working! My hair looks shinier and healthier and is growing like crazy! 

2. Rusk - Thermal Flat Iron Spray 

Ok, so the name of this one is misleading for my purposes since I have not straightened my hair more than a few times my whole life! I use this prior to blow-drying (if I remember) and before curling/waving my hair. You just need to lightly spray it on - you don't need to go crazy with it - I just sort of lift up my hair and do a spray all around and on top so I know I'm covered before I touch the curling iron to my hair. My favorite part about this one is that it has Argan Oil in it and is super moisturizing while also adding shine. It never makes my hair greasy, either! I learned the hard way (through a lot of hair damage) that a heat protectant goes a long way in protecting your hair. If you don't have one, get one! Big Sexy Hair also has a great one. 

3.  Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist 

This is one of those products that I've been using forever. It really works and is a deal! It is a deep conditioner - I wash my hair then lather this one on (I'm a little more liberal with the amount I use since it's not too pricey!) then in about 2-3 minutes wash it right out, rinse, and I'm ready to go. Using the Wet Brush is probably a good idea here, too to distribute before letting it sit. If you've never used this and you have color treated hair like me - this is a game changer!! 

What hair products do you guys swear by?? I'm always in the market to try a new way to care for my hair! Comment below! 

Thanks for reading!


  1. It's funny that you posted this because this weekend I tried my very first coconut oil hair mask! I'm obsessed. It left my hair silky smooth and shiny, is all natural and doesn't break the bank. Take 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil (extra virgin-not processed), rub hands together to melt. Take one inch pieces of hair and saturate with coconut oil. Once your whole head is covered (I took it easy on my roots), comb through. Clip on top of your head then wrap a hot towel around your head. I also put on a shower cap to keep the heat in. Thirty minutes later shampoo (twice) and condition like you normally would. Super easy and I did some chores around the house while I had it in!

    1. Yes def love coconut oil for the hair ! It can make mine a little greasy but smelling like a big almond joy is ok in my book :-)

  2. I would do literally anything to have your hair. Like, I would give a troll my first born. And I don't even want kids, so I would birth a child for the sole purpose of giving it to a troll for the sole purpose of having your hair. Going to buy these products ASAP, plz do a tutorial on how you get you get your beachy wavez as well as how you do a perfect messy topknot, I will follow your advice anywhere.

  3. I don't know how I am just reading this but LOL this is the best comment ever. THX CATI!! I am thinking of doing a messy beach wave tutorial this weekend!!
