My Hair Product Favs!

I am super excited to share with you my favorite hair products! I get asked all the time what I use in my hair. To be honest, it changes rather frequently! Being a hair stylist it is easy to try lots of new products. It can be an addiction of mine! But, I have been using Awapuhi products for almost two years now and still loving them. They are Paul Mitchell's newest line. They are infused with Wild Ginger from Hawaii. The key is to look for products that are paraben and sulfate free for your hair! Why? Parabens and Sulfate can strip out your hair color, dry out your hair, some say they are led to be carcinogenic. I personally make it a goal to go the natural route whenever it is possible!

1. Awapuhi Moisturizing Lather Shampoo! I love this product so much! It really does lather amazing. It is super rich for your hair. The Awapuhi lines smells amazing! I am really sensitive to scents, that is why the ginger aroma is perfect for me. Ginger helps with nausea. I use a nickel amount for my hair. You want to scrub your hair for a minute with your finger tips (not your nails). If you have a hard time spreading the product, re-rinse your hair in the water to help spread the shampoo.

2. Keratin Cream Rinse. This is really awesome! I love how light weight the conditioner is. I only wash my hair every 3-4 days so this is an awesome conditioner for me without weighing down my hair. I put the conditioner on my mid shaft to ends! I don't use conditioner on my scalp at all! It adds lots of shine and rebuilds your hair shaft with keratin.

3. My first styling product I put in my hair is, Aquage Uplifting Foam! This stuff is killer! Oh my word, does it work! I use a quarter amount on my roots! It is the best root lifter I have ever used! It isn't sticky, crunchy, or heavy. I love how weightless it is!

4. After the foam, I put in my "Old Faithful", Moroccan Oil! Seriously, this stuff is the real deal! My hair quenches for this amazingness! I have been using this product for 5+ years now. It lasts forever! I have a pump on it, so all you need is one pump for your hair. You can put this in wet or dry hair! I prefer wet hair for me. The Moroccan Oil comes in "Light" too. Light is great for fine hair or really blonde hair. The pigment of the regular one is an amber tone and the light is more gold. Why does the oil work so well? It has Argon oil in it from Morocco. It transforms your hair adding omega-3 oils and vitamins. I LOVE IT!

5. Once my hair is dry, I curl or flat iron my hair using the Awapuhi Shine Spray! It is lightweight, adds shine, and looks natural. This is my favorite scent in the whole Awapuhi Collection. It is fab! You can spray this in as a heat protectant or a finisher.

6. I love myself a good hairspray! My favorite of all time is the Awapuhi Finishing Spray. It is a medium-strong hold. I love how it has the ginger aroma. Being a hairstylist, I use a lot of hairspray on my guests, and I have struggled in the past with headaches from hairspray. This hairspray doesn't leave a fog after applying either (pet peeve). It is wonderful.

What are your favorite hair products? Have you tried any of these? Do you have a styling aid you swear by?

Happy Weekend Yal'l!
