My Favorite Hair Products

Many of you have asked about the hair products I use so I thought I’d share my favorite hair products. I change them every once in a while but this is what I’m using right now.



I use L’Oreal EverPure Shampoo and Conditioner. I usually use the volume shampoo and conditioner.

 

I also use L’Oreal Everstrong overnight hair repair treatment at night to help with my dry hair. I put it on my ends and leave it in while I sleep. It helps to keep your hair healthy!

I use Aquage uplifting foam to help with volume and I have to be careful not to use too much! It’s a root lifter and it gives you a lot of volume!


I use Paul Mitchell strength before I blow dry my hair. It’s for chemically treated hair. It helps strengthen weak hair, replace lost nutrients and prevent breakage. I blow dry and flat iron my hair everyday so this is a must for me!

I asked my husband to take pictures of my hair. He can’t work my camera so he had to use the automatic setting so these pictures aren’t great but they’re better than nothing.

My haircut is an angled bob, I have fine hair, but I have a lot of it. If that makes sense?

5 Ways To Fake Thick Hair

Okay, since several of you have emailed me hair questions I’m going to talk about hair today and I’m sharing 5 Ways To Fake Thick Hair.

Several of you asked if I had thick hair. I texted my hair stylist and asked her if I had thick hair, thin hair, or in between. She said I have fine hair with a lot of strands so it’s in between. I thought that’s what she would say, I just wanted to be sure.

I think my haircut helps to make my hair look thick but it’s really not so, here are some things I do to fake thick hair:

1. Fake thick hair by using a volume enhancing shampoo and conditioner. I personally use L’Oreal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo, 8.5-Fluid Ounce and L’Oreal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner, 8.5-Fluid Ounce. Avoid shampoos and conditioners that contain moisturizers because they weigh hair down.

2. Use a thickening gel or mousse. I use Paul Mitchell Extra Body Thicken Up, 6.8-Ounces Bottle

This product has made a huge difference in my hair feeling thicker. I use it everyday!

3. Blow dry your hair from root to tip with a round brush. Turn your head over several times while blow drying to add lift.

4. Tease hair at the crown for added appearance of full, thick hair. Don’t overdue this but a little can add volume and thickness. Of course if you read my fall hair trends the teased look is in!

5. Choose hairstyles that flatter fine hair such as a short, classic bob, or a medium, classic bob. Also, a shoulder-grazing cut angled in long layers around the face is flattering. If you have fine hair, the longer you let it grow, the thinner it will look. If you feel your hair is looking thin or stringy, try cutting off a couple of inches.

These are 5 tips I use to fake thick hair. Do you have any suggestions? Let me know!

A few weeks ago I posted some products I use to help with my dry hair from using a blow dryer and flat iron everyday. These two products have helped my hair so much! You can find them here.

I would love for you to follow me on PINTEREST to see things I love! Also, chat with my on my FACEBOOK page, it’s a great way to connect with me. If you want to see pictures of my day to day stuff, follow me on INSTAGRAM!

Beauty For the Heart~~I shared this verse on my facebook page yesterday so in case you missed it,  I’ll share it here. Its Psalm 89:1 from the Message, it makes me smile.

 Have a blessed day!

Favorite Products For My Hair

Good morning!

In case you missed it, Monday, I shared about some of my favorite drugstore makeup finds.

I love shopping at our local drugstore for all kinds of products but today I’m

sharing some hair products that I buy online or at my local salon.

I get lots of emails about what products I use and like on my hair.

I style my hair everyday and use a flat iron so as you can imagine,

I’m hard on my hair.

I’m always looking for good products to help with damage and split ends.

I still use AQUAGE uplifting foam for volume and I use L’OREAL

EverPure shampoo and conditioner regularly.

I’ve found some other great products and I wanted to share them with you.

I use PAUL MITCHELL strength everyday before I blow dry my hair.

  • This product repairs hair from the inside out.
  • It helps seal split ends for smooth, healthy-looking results.

A few months ago I received a sample of Ojon damage reverse

conditioner in my Birchbox.

I tried it and loved it so I decided to order the full size shampoo and conditioner.

These have been life savers for my hair and I use them 2 to 3 times a week.

  • This product smoothes ruffled cuticles and unwinds tangles to prevent breakage.
  • Hydrates and helps restore health.

Lastly, I get my hair trimmed every 4 to 5 weeks to get rid of split ends.

Do you have any suggestions or products you use that help with split ends?

Beauty For the Heart~~I love this quote by Ruth Bell Graham,

“If I cannot give my children a perfect mother I can at least give them more

of the one they’ve got–and make that one more loving.

I will be available. I will take time to listen, time to play, time to be home

when they arrive from school, time to counsel and encouerage.”

We’re not called to be perfect Mom’s but being a Mom is a

calling, let’s cherish it!

Have a blessed day!

Let’s Talk Hair Today!

Good morning!

You guys are too sweet! You were so kind to me in your comments of my first hair style video tutorial.

Most of you even liked my “mid-life crisis” blond streak{wink}. I am going to keep it right now.

Many of you had questions that I didn’t think to tell you in my video. I was also trying to keep it as short as possible.

My attention span is short so I’m assuming most of you are like me, and time is an issue.

I’m going to do my best to answer your questions so if there’s something else you would like to know, just leave me a comment.

Here’s what I do and the products I use on my hair:

 

  • I do wash my hair every day. I use enough product in my hair that it looks better if I wash it. My hair is course and tends to be dry so I condition a lot. I wish I didn’t have to wash it everyday, but I do.
  • I get my hair cut and colored every 4-5 weeks. Because I blow dry and use a flat iron every day my hair usually needs a trim and I have enough gray hair {ahem} that I need the color.
  • I change my hair products at times but right now I’m using L’Oreal EverPure shampoo and conditioner. I’m using the smooth shampoo and conditioner.
  • I’m also using Paul Mitchell strength. It’s a Super Strong Liquid Treatment that strengthens and repairs and I need it. I spray it on my hair after I’ve washed and conditioned it. If you have dry hair and color your hair this stuff is great!
  • Aquage uplifting foam~this is what gives my hair lift. I started using it after I read The Small Things Blog and I love it! I can’t find it in my area, so I order it from ebay or Amazon. I’ve ordered from both. If you want volume this stuff really works!
  • Lastly, I use Kenra volume spray ( I have a thing for volume, have you noticed?). It holds your style but you can brush through it if you need to. It is good!

I hope this helps and again let me know if you have any other questions.

I would love to hear from you, what products do you use and really like?

Beauty For the Heart~~This month I’m teaching from Colossians in my Sunday School class. I love the book of Colossians and I praise the Lord for verses like Colossians 2:13,

“You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.  He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.”

Oh ladies our sins have been nailed to the cross! Let’s not live defeated lives because of Jesus Christ we can live victoriously!

Let’s Talk Hair Products!

Good Morning!

I hope your weekend was great! I did some nesting and organizing around my house and I found a wonderful way to store all my scarves. I’m always looking for new ways to organize aren’t you?

Today I wanted to share some hair products I use and love. I buy some products from a salon, some from local stores and I order some online.

Most of the time I use L’OREAL shampoo and conditioner.

This shampoo and conditioner is designed specifically for people who color there hair. I have my hair colored every 4 to 5 weeks (not because I have to or anything, ahem) . I use the volume shampoo and conditioner.

The next three products I started using after reading The Small Things Blog. If you haven’t checked this blog out I would highly recommend it!

  • Redken Extreme Cat

protein for your hair

This is a concentrated protein spray that will help strengthen and smooth your hair from the inside out and I use it three to four times a week. This product helps your hair feel stronger and smoother.

  • Aquage Uplifting Foam

root lifter

I like oomph and this next product definitely helps with that! This is a root lifter and it will give your hair volume. If you like flat hair this product is not for you. (I order this online because the salon I use does not carry it.)

  • Kenra Volume 25 hairspray

hair spray

The first time I tried this hairspray I didn’t think I liked it, but after I used it for about a month I was hooked. It’s a strong but flexible hold. Which basically means it holds but you can brush through your hair if you want to. It’s not sticky or cakey (I’m not sure that’s a word).

For days when I’m hanging around the house I use TRESemme’ hairspray because it’s cheaper and I don’t want to waste my Kenra hairspray. :-)

That’s basically it! Do you have products you use regularly and love? I would love to know what they are!

Beauty For the Heart~~This week I’m studying from Acts10 and how God revealed to Peter that He doesn’t show favoritism.

Then Peter began to speak: “Now I really understand that God doesn’t show favoritism, but in every nation the person who fears Him and does righteousness is acceptable to Him.” Acts 10:34-35

This verse reminds us that God isn’t prejudice and wants everyone to accept the good news of the gospel!

I’m On A Hair Kick!

Okay I wanted to share some more hair pictures with you.

For some reason I’m on a hair kick!

I called my sister and told her about it and we both

laughed about how Mom was the same way.

She was always finding a haircut she liked and then

trying to find out where they got their haircut, how they styled it,

and what products they used. Mom would have loved Pinterest!

Anyway I would like to let my hair grow out a little bit and so I’m

going to use Kate’s haircut as a guide.

Here’s her haircut………….I love it!!

 

 

And here’s my haircut right now………..and yes I am going to stay a brunette.

 

 

My hair grows pretty fast so it won’t take long for it to get to her length.

I’m also going to use the products she uses on her hair everyday and see how

they work on my hair. We’ll see!

I would love to be able to wear my hair like this………the messy ponytail.

 

 

Love this too…………

 

Well let me know what you think!

Do you have a favorite haircut?

Walking in His Grace,
