Bad hair days happen to the best of us. Having had long hair most of my life, I can relate to those humid days, the weird kinks and the I-can’t-believe-I-curled-my-hair-and-now-it’s-raining moments. Then there was that time I went jetskiing and forgot a hair tie… 3 hours of brushing/conditioning followed (true story). I recognize the need for good quality hair products. Not just products that make my hair appear healthy, but ones that truly help repair any damage. Luckily for all of us, ULTA Beauty is hosting the Love Your Hair event from May 12 to June 1st. This celebration of hair includes hair events, demos, prizes and daily Beauty Steals™ featuring some amazing hair care products at discounted prices (in store and online). Some of my personal favorites that will be featured as Beauty Steals are:
Orofluido, I’m sure this must be called liquid gold. This oil does wonders for my hair. I use it after I have washed/towel-dried my hair. Not only does it help condition and add shine, but it also shortens my time with the blow dryer!
Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder – There will be always be days when I simply do not have the time to wash and dry my hair. This hair powder is a life saver! I sprinkle a bit near my roots and fluff my hair around a bit and all of the oilies are gone. Huge bonus: it’s totally volumizing. It gives me more lift than hair spray!
ConAir You Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer – Hair dryers never seemed too different from each other to me. This model is much quieter than the one I was using before, and my ears are grateful!
Hot Tools Nano Ceramic 1/2″ Straightener – I’ve never been a hair-straightening kind of gal. I can get straight hair just from using a blow dryer so using one just seemed like an unnecessary extra step. After testing this out I can see the appeal. My hair is smoother and more “finished” looking when I use it. It heats up in record time and was easy to manipulate in my hair.
KMS Hair Stay Dry Xtreme Hair Spray – I’m pretty laid-back when it comes to hair spray. I have never tried one that really knocked my socks off and just went with something inexpensive, readily available and that could hold a curl. This stuff smells great, comes out almost dry already (how do they do that?!) and really holds my style in place. I used it after curling my hair, and the next morning I woke up with my hair still partially curled! A perfect day to use some of the powder I mentioned above, right?!
