Over the years, I’ve talked a lot about hair care. I thought I’d try to condense that information into a single all things hair post. Because if there is one thing that’s worth investing in, it’s your hair. A great haircut will keep you at the top of your style game and give you oodles of confidence. Think of it as your best accessory—the one you wear each and every day. And for those of you looking to mix things up a bit this year, I’ve pulled together a few must-try women hairstyles for Spring.
It’s not always easy finding a fabulous hairstylist. And there might be more than one haircut gone awry before you find one that you love. Through the years I’ve definitely had my fair share of bad haircuts. Haven’t we all? The good news is hair grows back. The bad news is you’re stuck with a style you hate. At least for the time being. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be a bit smarter the next time we’re searching for a hairstylist. Here are a few tips I’ve picked up along the way.
Colleen Rothschild is running a sale this week. $25 off $100 and $50 off $200. Collen has fantastic hair care products and skincare, including Quench & Shine Restorative Shampoo and a Restorative Mask I use once a week for a healthy shine. I love their travel kit that comes with shampoo, restorative mask, hair serum, styling cream, plus a microfiber scrunchie. Another brand I rely on is Kérastase, whether it’s their Shampoo or Conditioner.
To keep my silver locks in tip-top condition, I reach for Hair Biology They have Purple Shampoo and Conditioner that’s available online at Target. Kérastase carries a purple shampoo but not a conditioner. Use sparingly (once or twice a week) as your hair can turn violet. Trust me, I know. Hair Biology also has products especially for thinning hair that I’ve heard good things about. And a thickening spray: Nioxin System Kits was created specifically for hair loss. It also strengthens hair while keeping it hydrated.
Specific anti-aging hair products are available these days. Once we hit 50 our hair has different needs. Alterna Caviar Anti Aging Moisture Shampoo combats dry brittle hair. Aveda Botanical Repair strengthens and repairs damaged hair. Better Not Younger Charcoal Activated Scalp Cleanser exfoliates and nourishes the scalp.
Styling products abound, but I’m a big fan of Kerastase Anti Frizz Spray for a smooth finish. Moroccan Oil Hairspray keeps my locks in place while giving my hair some shine. I also add Collagen for Her to my morning cup of coffee. Collagen improves the condition and strength of my hair, skin, and nails. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray adds volume and texture. It’s a nice alternative to dry shampoo.
Below are five hairstyles I’ve featured heavily over the blog. And for more inspiration, I’ve got an entire Instagram Reel that highlights my hairstyles since I started the blog.
