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

I have long brunette hair which has been damaged due to heat, color, and time. During Covid lockdown and not being able to visit the salon, I discovered Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask Cocoa - I will never get salon color again! This mask is easy to use, provides great coverage and color (I do have some greys and this doesn’t cover all of them but it looks more natural that way), takes away frizz and stays shiny for weeks. I apply a little bit inbetween uses to keep the color fresh. Also, using a t-shirt hair wrap after washing helps with frizz. 

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

I love Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme 3.3 oz/ 100 mL when smoothing my hair with a flat iron. It not only protects my hair from the heat, it also leaves it with a silky, shiny finish.

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

If you have curly or wavy hair, your hair loses moisture quickly, so it is important to deep condition (see product below) it every 15 days or every month- depending on what your hair needs. To prevent tangling, tie your hair before sleeping in a pineapple bun, which needs to be very loose.  

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

🔹#Briogeo!!! All of their products have truly changed my hair (I have thin hair, slight wave). The orange shampoo and conditioner set kept my scalp happy and  less oil production occurred. Washing my hair was only 1x every 2-3 days instead of everyday.💆🏻‍♀️

 

🔹When drying my hair, using an old Tshirt prevented my hair from having any pulling done to it, strands stayed in place! 👚 

 

🔹Using a silk pillow sheet also, has done a world of a difference in hair loss, and brilliance 🌙 

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

I used a heat protector when styling my hair. Especially when at the blow drying stage Verb Glossy Shine Heat Protectant Spray 

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

Once every other week I shampoo my hair twice to help remove buildup on my hair and scalp and follow up with a good deep conditioner like Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind™ Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfoods Hair Mask 8.0 oz/ 240 mL  or    Olaplex No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Hair Mask 3.3 oz/ 100 mL 

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

I started for using stain pillowcases and stain hair tie and that is helpful 

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

I’ve been struggling with frizzy and dry hair for a while so after trying different products out from sephora I think I found my perfect hair routine!! After a thorough wash, I use the Briogeo Farewell Frizz™ Smoothing Shampoo 8 oz/ 237 mL and Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme 3.3 oz/ 100 mL on wet hair. Literally maintains all the moisture from my hair and leaves it smooth and shiny the next morning! The best duo ever! And If I decide not to air dry I make sure to use Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil before using my Dyson Airwrap™ Styler Limited Edition Gift Set !!

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

Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil makes your hair look healthy and shiny! I use it while my hair is still wet and then in the morning after I brush it. 

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

I used to hate drying and straightening my hair after showers because it would take me an hour! That was until I made this change: use a blowdryer brush (I use drybars double barrel one). I'm not kidding when I say this was a game changer. At first it took some time to figure out a method to get the curls but once I got the hang of it, I found that it only take me 30 mins to dry and style my hair into beautiful loose curls. Pro tip: use hair oil and curl defining cream for perfect frizz free curls! #curls#drybar

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

Some scrunchies and hair ties can really be pretty hard on your hair but the Slip Silk Ribbon & Scrunchie are very gentle.

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

Heat protection!!! If you are heat styling, you need to use a heat protectant. I am someone who always turns my straightener to the highest setting (455) because I’m impatient and want things done fast. I was frying my hair for years and heat protection has become something I can’t style without. I notice a gradual difference hair when I started them. More strength and Way less breakage. My favorites that I actually use together sometimes are the JVN Complete Instant Recovery Heat Protectant Leave-In Serum 3.4 oz/ 100 mL  and Olaplex No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum 3 oz / 90 mL . Both are incredible and work to add some hydration to the hair and manageability. You need these in your hair routine! Protect your hair! 

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

Definitely do not wash your hair everyday as it will dry it out.

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

I love R+Co Perfect Hair shampoo and conditioner. It gives my fine hair volume, and moisturizes without buildup. I wish Sephora would offer it. 

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

I love using a hairmask/ oil overnight. When I wash my hair the next day, it’s so soft, smooth and not frizzy 

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

K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL 

saved my hair and it repairs damage! Honestly kind of a miracle 

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

Always use heat protectant if you use heat styling tools or blowdryers 

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

Using boar bristle brushes for that perfect tight bun/ ponytail! 

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

The Bumble and bumble Bond-Building Repair Styling Cream 5 oz/ 150 mL is a great styling cream before blowing out your hair! It prevents frizz and breakage. It works well for thick hair.

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

If you have or want thick hair, hair masks and oils are your best friends!!! My favorite hair mask is Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Hair Mask 32 oz/ 946 mL . This is a root to ends hair mask and it really doesn’t leave your hair feeling oily at all. After your hair dries it feels so voluminous and soft. My split ends have really been improving because of this. I also like using Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil as a heat protectant. And the Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Strengthening Treatment Hair Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL as a strengthening hair oil. I find that putting oils from mid hair to ends at night leaves your hair feeling silky and healthy in the morning:)

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

A wallet-friendly way to clarify & remove build-up: use Apple Cider Vinegar as a Pre-Shampoo treatment. 

1) combine Water & ACV in a small (2 oz/ 60ml) tube or bottle. portions: 3 parts H20 to 1 part ACV.*

2) add to ACV & H2O mixture: 4 or 5 Cloves (merely to alter the aroma). Agitate it. Let this concoction sit for a few Hours.

3) to use, wet hair as usual. Pour mix over hair & distribute as desired. Rinse.

4) Then Shampoo per normal.

It's a 'crunchy' variation on what a few others have mentioned. *always dilute ACV, as its pH is wicked harsh!  As with many of these suggestions, use at your discretion.
