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.

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!
