Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I know it may sound like common sense but always brush your hair starting from the ends and work your way up to the root!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

My hair is dry and frizzy in the Florida weather.  I use coconut oil on the ends of my hair and get shiny manageable results!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I never knew you could use purple shampoo on natural blonde hair before recently but in the last month I’ve started using Verb Purple Shampoo 12 oz/ 355 mL and Better Not Younger Silver Lining Purple Butter Hair Mask 6.8 oz/ 200 mL and it’s been a game changer. I use it maybe every other wash and my hair looks brighter, blonder and much less brassy. I was worried using color in my virgin hair would dry it out or damage it but the deep conditioner makes my hair shinier, softer and sleeker than before. I really wish I had known this tip sooner because I feel like it has completely transformed my hair. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I have naturally fine and straight hair that tangles easily. Once a week I use Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme 3.3 oz/ 100 mL as a hair mask. This helps with split ends and keeps tangles out of my hair. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

@Grayfordays  Yes!!! So good!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I love using Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil 2 oz/ 60 mL to finish off my style. It makes my hair so soft and shiny, without it feeling greasy or heavy. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

The best thing for her hair is to let it air dry when you wash it. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I moved to a hotter climate and my hair felt dryer. amika Normcore Hydrating Conditioner 9.2 oz / 275 mL  and amika Normcore Sulfate Free Shampoo 9.2 oz / 275 mL Have been amazing. I use it 2-3 times per week (it’s pricy) and my hair feels soft and healthy. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Another product I have introduced into my routine is hail and scalp oil. I apply 2 droppers onto my scalp and give myself a scalp massage. I usually do this about once or twice per week the morning of or evening before I wash my hair. I find this leaves my scalp nourished and my hair shiny

 It does not make my hair greasy at all when I shampoo out the oil. The oils I have been loving are JVN Complete Pre-Wash Scalp & Hair Treatment Oil 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  and Fable & Mane Mini HoliRoots™ Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil 0.48 oz/ 14.4 mL 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

@Mellmars1185  Oooo I didn’t know JVN had a pre wash!! I agree I love the Fable & Mane HoliRoots™ Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil 3.4 oz/ 100 mL  it’s so good!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

i have very thin hair overall which causes me to worry about breakage a ton, i use this awesome product, Olaplex No. 3 Hair Repair Perfector as a hair mask twice a month and it helps my hair with breakage so much! i love it and recommend if you have heat damage/breakage.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

For hair that is damaged because of over processing…. The Moroccanoil Mediterranean Escape: Hydration Hair Set  has been a game changer .  No more dry and brittle hair.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

My best tip is to use heat protectant on curly hair. I really love the combo of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Glossy™ Nourishing Anti-Frizz Hair Oil 2 oz/ 60 mL Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler adwoa beauty Blue Tansy Leave in Conditioning Styler 14 oz/ 414 mL I find that these leave my curls smelling good and looking shiny and defined, while also protecting me from all types of heat and Sun exposure.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Favorite hair tip is tools. I loove them. For a salon blow out. Don’t forget the heat protector. Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler  it’s amazing. I have fine color treated hair. Naturally very dark and thanks to my stylist it’s blonde. So I baby my hair with Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

The best hair tip that I have is to put hair oil in the ends of your hair! #olaplex has the best oil I have used so far- I have dry and brittle hair and their bonding oil made my split ends bond back together and my hair shiny!!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

If you have fine or oily hair, and are looking for products that won't weigh it down, look for shampoos and styling products that are clear, not milky-looking.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I have 3b curls and my biggest tip is to drench your hair in warm water when detangling with a conditioner. Makes things so much easier and rinsing with cold water leaves the hair super curly without any frizz later!

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

I have swavy wavy hair and a lot of it. I started using the Grace Eleyae Adjustable Slap Satin-Lined Cap nightly and once I wake up my hair is not as frizzy. Also my curls remain springy and bouncy.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Tip #2: When I'm having a frizzy day, I love to apply some Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil 2 oz/ 60 mL to the bottom half of my tresses. I feel like this is the most light weight yet effective hair oil on the market (for me, at least) and I love that it comes with a little pump to make sure you never "over do it" and make today another wash day, haha! A bottle of this lasts me such a long time too. 

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Sometimes you need a little hydration for your hair when working out.  I spritz on PATTERN by Tracee Ellis Ross Mini Hydrating Hair Mist 3 oz/ 88.7 mL to keep the frizz to a minimum.  It's also refreshing during my workout.

Re: Best Hair Ever Sweepstakes: Enter For a Chance to Win One of Fifteen $200 e-Gift Cards!

Ive been using Morrocan Oil in my hair (avoing the roots) and it makes my hair so smooth and shiny! Plus it smells good everywhere i go! Love it!! Moroccanoil Blonde Perfecting Purple Conditioner
