Is it just us, or is it getting more and more difficult to remember the last time you had a really good hair day? Ever since we started social distancing last year, our locks have been tied up into ultra messy buns and haphazard ponytails much more often than we’d like to admit. But, that’s why we’ve decided that the time has come to start styling our strands again.
Of course, we also understand that managing our manes after such a long time can be so tricky that it leaves both you and your hair in a tangle. So for this week’s edition of Friday Faves, we’re sharing a roundup of the seven hair styling essentials that have the power to make every single hair day a good one.
One way to make sure that your hair styles are always on point is by making sure that you use the right tools. Whether you want to obtain beachy waves, romantic curls or glamorous loops, this cutting-edge curling iron from Hot Tools will help you get it done. It features a unique styling surface that evenly distributes heat for both consistency and long-lasting results. It also allows for various heat settings up to 430°F, so you can trust that it’ll give you gorgeous curls, no matter what hair type or texture you have.
If you’re the kind of babe who constantly uses heat to dry your hair, let us put you onto a product that has the power to change that. These hair towels from Turbie Twist feature moisture wicking microfibers that are designed to help absorb excess water and get your hair dry in no time. Now you can cut down on the time it takes to towel dry and diminish any chances of damaging your hair by constantly using a blow dryer.
Whether you color-treat, heat-style or chemically-straighten your hair, it’s safe to say that we all put our locks through a lot of distress. That’s why it’s so important to use a strengthening serum, like this one from Carol’s Daughter. We love this one specifically because it’s infused with Monoi Oil, which is proven to rebuild hair structure from the inside out, offering a true repair that doesn’t wash away or weigh hair down like silicones do. It’s also blended with Plum Seed Oil that restores softness and Kukui Oil that boosts your hair’s natural shine. Use this serum and you’ll be well on your way to obtaining your hair’s maximum strength and length, no matter what you do to it.
Shh… don’t tell! Here’s one hairstyling secret that we’re dying to divulge. Prepping your locks before styling them is always key – and this lightweight polishing primer from Gisou will definitely do the trick. It’s infused with honey, sweet almond oil, and propolis which fortify hair, protect it from damage and make hairstyles last all day long. We also love the fact that this primer is designed to prevent and diminish frizz, reduce drying time and give hair texture more volume and definition.
Don’t get your tresses in a tangle! We know from experience that every great hairstyle starts with the right brush. And if you’re on the hunt for one that will never let you down, check out the Pro Detangler from Wet Brush. Not only does it work well on both wet and dry hair, but it’s also made with ultra-soft IntelliFlex bristles which will glide through any tangles with ease. Now you can say goodbye to the days of causing yourself pain and hair breakage while combing through your locks.
If there’s one hair care staple we should all have in our arsenals, it’s definitely a good leave in conditioner. Much like the conditioners we use in the shower, it’s not only designed to lock in moisture and keep hair silky-soft, but it also offers detangling and heat-protecting properties. Leave-in conditioner shouldn’t replace your regular one, but it’s the perfect product to reach for when your hair could use a little extra TLC. We love this one from Odele especially because it’s formulated with amino acids that help improve hair health, shine and movement over time.
If you’re looking for a way to get that “I woke up like this” kind of feeling that Beyoncé sings about, then these satin pillow rollers from Annie were made practically for you. Simply apply each roller to your hair before bed, catch those Z’s, and then wake up with a head full of voluminous curls by morning. No matter what kind of hair type or texture you have, these satin rollers will allow you to effortlessly achieve the style you want without all of the fuss of using a curling iron. And just like that, you totally just re-defined what it means to get your beauty sleep!
Wishing you good hair days!
