Hair Care Favorites

Here is a list of my favorite haircare products. I have been lucky enough to try and test hundreds of different products due to my passion for and experience in the beauty industry, so I figured I’d gather up a list of things that stood out as exceptional to me. I’ve included both high-end (professional quality) and low-end (drug store brands, etc.) favorites to make things fair, because I of all people know that it’s not always an option to buy that $20 shampoo in this day and age. 😉 Please keep in mind these are all just my opinions, based on personal experience and use. Don’t hesitate to contact me or leave a comment if you’d like me to go in depth about any product. I LOVE talking beauty, so feel free to mention some of your favorites, and let me know if there’s a category or type of product I missed! 🙂

NOTE: I will eventually be including links to all of these brands and products! Hang tight!

    Hi, my name is Kim an I have been using the biolage hydro foaming mousse for 10 years, my hair bleached and very fine and thin. No other mousse has ever provided the volume for me that this one does, and now biolage has changed the mousse to this blue-agava stuff and it no longer works for me. Any suggestions?

      Have you ever tried Rusk Blofoam? That’s a great product for volume.
