Everything I use on my hair
Last week’s post on everything I put on my face got such a big response that I decided it might be fun to share my tonsorial products as well (and have you share yours in the comments, please). Hair is actually such an important part of my life that it’s surprising I don’t write about it more here—there’s a whole chapter in the book on it. Mine, left to its natural devices, is corkscrew-curly (I like how curls look on others, but not on me) and painfully thin. So I have extensions, and use this shampoo because it doesn’t eat away at the bonds.
You’re not supposed to use deep conditioners every time you shampoo, but my hair is so dry and damaged that I do; it just drinks this stuff up, and I’ve noticed a real change since I started using it.
I towel-dry my hair and then apply more of this than is probably recommended, but it is just so good: it detangles beautifully and leaves it feeling undamaged and even smooth.
This blow dryer is really fast, and lightweight too.
I heat style with a curling iron: even though the look I’m going for is relatively straight, I’ve been warned off of anything like a straight- iron. Still, to protect it from damage and to impart a little shine, I apply this before the iron goes through my hair.
I go section-by-section with my hair and run it all through this curling iron to get my hair as straight as it gets.
