Pony Tail Bling

I came across these blinged and beaded out ponies on Pinterest and was immediately in love!

Pumpkin Spice Hair

I booked an appointment with my girl Alex at W Salon in Madison, CT for next weekend, and originally I was going to have her dye my hair dark brown, my usual. However, I’ve been wanting to go ginger for a long time now. My natural brown hair tends to pull red anyway so I think my hair is telling me it’s wants to be red. Here’s some deep, rich ginger color inspo…

Bob Life

If you don’t know from some of my previous hair posts, I have done a lot of damage to my hair over the years. I bleached it in the fall, and recently went back to dark brown this summer. I have fine, thin hair that does not like being long. When my hair is long, the ends get extremely thin, and stringy and break so easily.

Saturday night I was at my aunt’s who just so happens to be a hairdresser. We were talking about my hair and how the ends have been very thin lately. She mentioned a photo of a bob haircut I had posted on my instagram and she thought that would be a great haircut for me.

Two years ago, I got a botched bob haircut that was horrible. I went to some guy’s basement who my ex knew and he literally chopped my hair. It was a short bob with tons of short layers. I felt so ugly. I personally think that if you have thin hair, layers make it look thinner. I had been growing my hair out for two years and since it grows slow normally, it only grew to a little past my shoulders in two years. My layers still hadn’t grown out and I knew the only way I could start from fresh, was to cut my hair again.

So here I am, with a haircut very similar to actress, Lucy Hale right below. I absolutely love it and my hair feels so much thicker. If you have been thinking about doing a bob, I would say go for it. It’s in style and feels amazing. Plus, I think it looks super chic.

Here’s some bob haircut inspiration…

Hair Care Go-To’s

I have struggled with my hair ever since a few years ago when I noticed it starting to get very thin. There were factors in my life that I believe may have led to this and now it’s an everyday battle to figure out how to get my hair looking healthier and thicker. Although I can’t actually make my hair grow thicker, there are products I use that help make it look shinier and healthier. Here are some of my favorites that help my thin, dry, damaged hair.

Juice Organics Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner

I am really into natural hair care and after receiving a sample of this shampoo and conditioner from Ulta, I fell in love. This helps give my hair volume and thickness without looking dry. I also feel great putting it in my hair because if you look at the bottle, there are so many bad things they don’t use.

Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Superfoods Hair Pack

Let me start off by saying, “how cute are these?!” They were made to look like green juices. Please don’t drink haha. I heard about these from beauty Youtuber, Allie Glines and she raved about them. When I heard that they were formulated with super foods like apple, kale, matcha and spinach, I was super intrigued and wanted to try. These smell just like apple, it’s delicious. What I also love, is that the shampoo lathers so well. I have never tried a shampoo without sulfates that lathered. This gives you a full soapy lather which I like, because I feel like my hair is actually getting clean. This leaves my hair feeling super soft and it blow dries so shiny.

Briogeo Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Crème

Since I have thin hair, after I wash it, I have to blow dry it. If I let it air dry, it gets super thin feeling and oily the next day. Before I blow dry, I love to take a smoothing cream and run it through my hair. You only need a pea size. This helps control frizz after a blow dry and leaves my hair shiny.

OUAI Treatment Masque

This is my favorite leave-in-conditioner of all time. First off, I am obsessed with the scent. The smell lasts in my hair until the next day which is incredible. It’s hard to describe the scent because its not a fruity or floral scent, it’s just some sort of perfume scent. I use this in the shower after I shampoo my hair. You are supposed to leave it in for 10 minutes and then rinse out, but sometimes I can’t wait that long if I’m taking a shower. Even if I leave it in for five minutes, I notice a difference. My hair looks like I got it professionally blow dried. Seriously, this product is a gem!

Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream

I started using Oribe a few years ago when a salon I went go to used Oribe products on their clients. I absolutely love Oribe hair care. This is the most expensive product I’ve mentioned, but it’s worth it. This is another product like the Briogeo Rosarco, that you apply to your hair damp right before a blow dry. The cream is white with shimmer in it, which is supposed to help give shine to your hair. I definitely notice after I dry my hair, that it’s softer, shiner and not frizzy.

My Favorite Purple Shampoo/Conditioner for Blondes

Now that I am “a blonde”, it has been extremely important for me to use a purple based shampoo to tone the brassy tones that arise. I have tried a few purple shampoos but none that I absolutely love except for this kick-ass duo.

I have been using Oribe products for a few years now. I love that I have found a high-end haircare line that is cruelty-free. I started using their volumizing and color treated hair products. I have also tried their Gold Lust collection which is amazing. It was only fitting that I would now try their Bright Blonde products. Both the shampoo and conditioner are purple. I had never used a purple conditioner and while I don’t think it is necessary, I wanted to try the complete set. If you only want to use a purple shampoo, that’s fine. You can use a normal conditioner.

After using Oribe products then drying my hair, I notice a difference right away. You hair is immediately, softer and so shiny! I cannot believe the amount of shine I get from these products. I haven’t been using the blonde products for very long, but I definitely can already see that the brass is staying away.

The high price tag of these products might be a deterrent for you, but if you wash your hair once to twice a week as recommended, these will last you forever. When it comes to haircare products, you really do get what you pay for.
