It probably will not come as a surprise at this point to tell you guys that I am as selective with my haircare products as I am my other beauty products. I really go the extra mile in researching brands and the ingredients found in their products, before adding them to my favorites—especially for products applied directly to the scalp like shampoo.
I’ve never really put together a list of my favorite hair care products, so I thought I’d dedicate a whole post to that today. Enjoy!
1. Young Living Products
Young Living is an amazing brand that is best known for their high quality essential oils. In my family, we have used their lavender shampoo and conditioner for years. They are not the least expensive hair care products out there, but if you are looking to invest in a really nice, quality set of products, I have nothing but glowing reviews.
The lavender products smell wonderful and I just love knowing that they are made with such care, high quality ingredients, and essential oils. The shampoo particularly is extremely rich and really feels luxurious.
Bonus: Lavender is known for aiding in hair growth as well.
I’ve recently come across this brand and have since absorbed it into my little shower team. Their thought is, “We believe beauty is in simplicity. We make beauty simple.” LOVE that. Beauty should be simple, and with ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and carrot root oil, natural beauty just shines through all on its own.
Burgati is as concerned with providing luxurious results as it is with avoiding harmful chemicals like sulfates and parabens. You definitely don’t need to sacrifice one of these things for the other.
My favorite ingredient in their products is argan oil. You guys know how much I slather on argan oil on the reg. for soft and shiny hair, so I tend to include it in all facets of my hair regime. Their shampoo and conditioner are rich and moisturizing and the leave-in conditioner is the icing on the cake—highly recommend!
3. OGX Weightless Healing Dry Oil
Honestly, I picked up this oil about a year ago quite randomly at the drug store and it’s become a staple for me. OGX is an awesome brand that is health conscious and avoids many harmful chemicals.
This spray is also an argan oil-based product (told you I’m hooked) and I use it primarily on damp hair as a heat protectant. I spray it before I blow dry my hair, and it also helps make my hair come out smoother and shinier. It’s great in the summer as well to protect hair from too much drying under the sun.
It’s a light, and non-greasy oil which is hard to find with argan. Super cheap and lasts forever!
4. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
This is my styling product go-to. This dry spray instantly adds volume and hold and works great with curly, wavy, or messier styles. I use it on my dry hair from about the ears down after curling and it just adds such fullness that lasts. I just spray it in and kind of mess my hair around as I spray.
There are some really interesting ingredients in this spray too: ginger root extract, kiwi and passion flower extracts, and mango extract to name a few.
I do tend to be a little more lenient as far as ingredients go with products that are not applied directly to my scalp, but Oribe really has a great line up anyways.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I just think it’s so awesome that there are options now for people who are concerned about using cleaner products. Not too long ago, they were very few products to choose from, and it really is exciting to see all these great products emerge that also do a bangin’ job. Happy hair day!
