This post has been a long time coming, but I’ve been getting a ton of questions about my hair. I wanted to get it all together in one post so I’m breaking it down into different sections with all the products and tools I use. I will say I have a lot of fine, naturally straight hair and these are the techniques that work for me.

Washing

I wash my hair twice a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) and rotate between a few different shampoos – here, here and here. I like to use a purple shampoo and conditioner once a week to keep the brass out of my blonde.

I try to do a coconut oil hair mask once a week. It’s super easy I just put coconut oil on my hair and twist it into a bun for a few hours before I shower. This is what I use.

Out of the shower I use this leave-in conditioner. I’ve raved about it so many times because it’s the only thing that helps me get the tangles out. My hair turns crazy when it’s wet and becomes really hard to manage because it gets so tangled. I use this brush to comb it out.

Styling

As often as I can I let my hair air dry. I only use a blow dryer a few times a year. To give you an idea the last time I did was when I was in labor because I didn’t want to go to the hospital with soaking wet hair – that was 8 months ago!!

While its drying I like to use an oil to keep my hair nourished. This is the one I’m currently using but I’ll link a few others below. I really have no preference in this area.

I curl my hair once a week unless I have a special event/shoot during the week. I try to do it on Friday night/Saturday morning and it lasts until I wash my hair on Tuesday.

For my waves I recently switched from my old faithful Hot Tools to a T3 and I love it so much. I alternate between wand attachments depending on how loose I want the waves to be, but the 1″ wand is my favorite.

Hold the wand upside down and take about a 1/2 inch – 1 inch piece of hair and use your free hand to wrap the hair around the wand, away from your face.

Maintaining

After a day or so my hair starts to get a little flat/greasy looking so I reach for the dry shampoo/dry conditioner. I have a few favorites that I’ll link below.

For me the key is to apply it before it gets too dirty to stop it from really getting oily. Also brushing my waves sometimes helps perk them up, but every once in a while I have to touch it up with the curling iron.

When I’m doing things around the house I like to keep my hair in the front out of my face and use these clips to do so. Nothing fancy, but since those are the pieces that tend to get oily the fastest it helps to have them pulled back.
