Hair is really important to me. The reality is that I wasn’t born with beautiful luscious hair. As a little girl, I used to have a frizzy unmanageable mane, which has made me be aware of hair care from an early age. I have been through dozens of treatments, products, systems… you name it, I’ve done it! But a couple of months ago, I started to notice the amount of people commenting on my hair (in person and in social media), about how soft, healthy, and long it looks. After testing a lot of products, and going back and forth through different brands, I can officially say these products that I am about to show you comprise my holy grail for hair.
Shampoo & Conditioner
My everyday shampoo and conditioner comes from the L’Oréal Paris line Elvive. Because the natural texture of my hair is very dry, I love the shampoo and conditioner from Oleo Extradionario. They make my hair soft, and give a special shine. Plus, a well hydrated hair helps fight frizz. On that note, once a week I make sure to use Alfaparf Milano’s Frizz Control Shampoo. This one helps me keep my hair under control in Panama’s humid weather. The reason I only use it once a week is because I don’t really love the textures it gives my hair, but it really does an amazing job of controlling frizz.
Hair Treatments & Masks
I try to do hair treatments or masks at least once a week. I hate over saturating my hair, so I will alternate the products I use every week. If I feel my hair is really dry, I will definitely use my L’Oreal Elvive Oleo Extradionario hair treatment. This does a great job of hydrating my hair, and giving it that shiny, soft look we all love to have! And because I’m a curling iron addict, this restores my hair from all the heat damage.
Every other week I will use my Alfaparf Frizz Control Butter Mask. My wavy, weird textured hair loves this product to death! This does an amazing job at taming my natural waves… without this I don’t think I would dare leave my house with my natural hair.
And my super duper special hair tip is this product: Oleo Extraordinario Hair Blister! Whenever my hair needs a quick pick me up, this product is what I use. You only have to leave it on for one minute and it works MAGIC! Without a doubt, it is one of the most hydrating products out on the market.
After I get out of the shower, I have a very simple routine! As I mentioned before, I don’t like to saturate my hair with a lot of products, so on a daily basis, I will use a small amount of hair oil, be it my Elvive or Garnier one and my Alfaparf Frizz Control Smoothing Cream. But when I go out at night, I do apply my Tec Italy Sculpting Gel so that my curls have an amazing hold.
And just in case you are wondering, this post is totally not sponsored by Elvive! I just love their products and they really do work for my hair.
