my ten must haves for beach-y california hair.

i'm a low maintenance type of girl, 

no styling, to speak of, 
but my hair has to be super-super soft 
and it has to smell good.
my hair is naturally wavy,
with lots of body, so i don't fight it
with straightening or curling,
but i think these same tips would apply to
other types of hair as well. note: it's best to use 
products when your hair is damp not soaking wet 
as it's a bit more porous 
when damp and will absorb the product better.

  • Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Shampoo, smells amazing.
  • Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Conditioner, smells amazing, makes hair soft.
  • Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Heat Defense Leave-in Conditioner, smells amazing, makes hair soft. i use right when i take the towel off my hair, on very damp hair.
  • Organix Pomegranate Green Tea Anti-Frizz Serum, makes hair soft and shiny. i usually go pony tail down , then any leftover on my hands goes from about an inch from the top and runs thru the hair again. you don't want much oil at the part, ever. 
  • Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Light, i rotate this with the pomegranate oil.
  • John Frieda Sheer Blonde Lustrous Touch Strengthening Conditioner, use once or twice a week or whenever hair feels thirsty.
  • No hair dryer ever, i like to let my hair dry naturally. always.
  • No brush, i don't own one.
  • A wide tooth comb, i use before the shower to release any tangles, then sometimes when my hair is wet, but usually never when it's dry.
  • Redken Curl Boucle Ringlet 07, apply small amount and softly scrunch hair. or twist, if you're patient. twist is the new scrunch. scrunching is quicker. i'm a simple girl, so i usually scrunch.
