I never really thought I was a hair product kind of girl, but as it turns out, I've been collecting hair products all year! No girl that doesn’t care about hair could possibly have this much Oribe… not to mention everything else!
The Daily Cleanse
My Picks: Phyto // Serge Normant
I never was very picky about shampoo, but these last few months I've been loving these high end shampoos. Perhaps it is because my hair is getting longer, but I am really loving the difference. I've mentioned the Phyto Clarifying Detox Shampoo before, but I just love how fresh and minty it is in the morning. Plus, it really makes my scalp feel normal and balanced, and seems to keep my hair cleaner for much longer.
Similarly, the Serge Normant Meta Silk Shampoo and Meta Velour Conditioner keep my hair looking good even on day three, which is totally not the norm for me. It has a unique scent I can't seem to describe but my fiance likes a lot! I do find that this shampoo isn't really detangling, but using the conditioner with it makes my hair manageable and normal. Also interesting to note is that you can use both the shampoo and conditioner daily, which also works just fine for me. I've also been playing around with some shampoo samples from brands like Oribe, Malin & Goetz, and Bumble & Bumble.
My Picks: Oribe Maximista // Bumble & Bumble Thickening Mousse // Living Proof Perfect Hair Day // Living Proof Full Thickening Cream
I always like trying out volumizing products, and Oribe Maximista & Bumble's Thickening Mousse are the newest products in my collection. I haven't used the Oribe enough to properly review it, and my general impressions on Bumble's is that it works, but is slightly sticky. Definitely need to use both more often to share more thoughts on them.
On the other hand, I'e always been a fan of Living Proof, a brand that is not so horribly expensive and is easily accessible in the US. I love the scent of Living Proof products, and both Perfect Hair Day and the Full Thickening Cream are non-sticky and weightless in my hair. I love how both of these products give my hair volume and help it look as if I've actually done something to make my hair look nice.
Next Day Hair
My Picks: Lush Sea Spray // Oscar Blandi Invisible Dry Shampoo
Last summer, I discovered Lush's Sea Spray, a citrusy concoction that kept my manageable second day hair looking and smelling nice. (Original review here) I also rediscovered my love for Oscar Blandi Invisble Dry Shampoo (review), a product I had been using for a long time but didn't really think much of until I ran out!
My Picks: Bumble & Bumble Cityswept Finish // Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray // Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidy Spray
Now I usually don't make it to the step of using a finishing spray, but I'd like to think I will. Suffice to say, I've only used each of these products once in all the time that I've had them. The Oribe smells good, and I wonder if the Bumble isn't quite right for my hair type, but really, I need to use these way more!
Finally, I'm a bit horrified to report that I have a whole bin of hair product samples to use besides these. Where did they all even come from?! Yup, I’ve officially joined the ranks of the hair obsessed. Now what miracle hair product should I try next??
