Keeping up with great hair care is important for those who dye their hair often. In addition to dyeing hair, those using heating tools daily (such as myself) must keep up with a hair care regimen in order to keep your hair appearing as healthy as possible.
I often switch up my hair products just as often as I switch up my makeup and skin care. I love using different brands to really get an idea of how different products work for my hair. After trial and error, I have discovered my top favorite products when it comes to caring for my color.
1.) Pravana Perfection Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner
I absolutely love these products. They are basically my top pick when it comes to what I use. I truly believe Pravana has such amazing quality products and trying these out definitely validated that for me. My hair never had the shiny appearance it does now before I started using their products. My favorite thing about the shampoo is that my hair really does feel super clean after rinsing it off. It does not leave any product residue which I often struggle with when using other products. The scent is incredible, it just smells super clean. The conditioner is the same and helps revive my hair after days of using heat tools. A tip: The way to get the best out of their conditioner for your color is to use a fresh mixture of your Vivids color with the product in the shower to help refresh your color!
2.) Pravana Intense Therapy Leave-in Treatment
As Pravana’s website describes, “Enriched formula gives a burst of moisture and instantly transforms coarse, dry or frizzy hair to a smooth, soft texture. Specially formulated to rejuvenate and protect hair while shielding it from harmful UV rays.” I use this product when I have my hair freshly washed, right out the shower. I noticed using this product before my hair air dries really helps tame the frizzy texture it tends to have. My hair definitely feels soft after using this as well and I make sure to focus on my ends of my hair when applying this product. It also smells amazing (which I believe all Pravana products do!)
3.) Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo
Macadamia’s shampoo would be my second favorite. I get the same great clean feeling throughout my hair when using this product and experience no left over residue. This is my go to product when I am not using Pravana’s products.
4.) Macadamia Deep Repair Masque
This has to be my favorite hair mask I have used for reviving my hair. I love using this product once a week for intense conditioning for my dry hair. I leave this soaking on my ends for about 10-15 minutes in the shower and the difference in texture is amazing. This product is a must for me personally and it smells lovely in addition to everything!
5.) TIGI S Factor Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of these products is the smell! It smells like candy to me…such a favorite of mine because of how amazing my hair’s scent is after using this product. I seriously can’t stop smelling my hair after freshly washing with this product, it’s that good! Aside from its delicious scent, the product does work well at washing and conditioning also. I will admit though, my main love for this product really is the smell… can’t get over that! Haha.
6.) Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask
For those on a budget, my favorite affordable hair mask is the Triple Moisture Deep Recovery. This is a great product, in my opinion, to get by. I believe Neutrogena did very well with this product and it definitely brings back the moisture to dry hair. I personally think this product also smells really good (I love products that do). This is easily affordable to keep up with using one time a week for good hair care therapy!
