This month’s beauty buys post is all about the hair! If you’ve been following my blog for the past few months you know I’ve added some blonde to my hair recently, and since doing so I’ve been looking for ways to keep my hair strong and break-free. Let me first say that I try to only wash my hair once or twice per week and I have found this not only helps keep my strands healthy, but makes getting ready in the mornings SO much easier! 🙂 I also try to limit the heat I use on my hair. I cannot stand my hair straight, so I have to curl my hair when wearing it down. I know it’s weird, but I feel like straight hair just looks really weird on me. So, when I wash my hair I will let it air dry. I seriously cannot remember the last time I used my hair dryer!
Okay, so I said all that to let you know that I’m not searching for a miracle product, or something that’s going to magically change my hair overnight. My hair is really healthy already, but I love to try new hair products, especially anything that says it hydrates or provides protection. The great thing about the products in this post is that they are both under $10 and can be found at Target!
- OGX Lavender Luminescent Platinum Penetrating Oil: This is an oil that you apply on towel dried hair after your shampoo and I love this stuff! It made combing my wet hair so much easier and my hair felt softer and less-tangly throughout the week. Since I just got my hair done I’m not sure it helped with brassiness or brightened the color any, but I did love how it made my hair feel! I’m going to keep using it and let you know if it helps keep my hair bright over the next 6 weeks. Stay tuned!
- Nexxus Humectress Moisture Masque: This masque is applied on the mid-shaft to ends of the hair for 3-5 minutes and has a butter-like consistency. This masque smells absolutely delicious, but I didn’t notice any dramtic difference in my hair. Again, my hair is really healthy already, but this seemed to do the same thing that my monthly coconut oil masque does. The amount this little package gives you is great for the price! I will probably get 3-4 treatments out of this one purchase, which is a great value. If you have a ton of breakage, or just want to try and revive dull hair, this might be a great masque for you. I’m curious to see what this will do for me in the summer months with my newly blonde hair!
