Werq That Hair

The weather this summer season has been particular to say the least. As a Southern Californian I shouldn't be complaining because it has been significantly grueling everywhere else in the country. But my hair has just been a unhappy mess because of the abrupt changes. 

To relieve it of its frizzy, tangled, and dryness I've been using these four products.

Phyto Phytovolume Actif Volumizer Spray (for Fine and Limp Hair)
Naturally, I have very thin and flat hair. I dream of having locks a la Zooey Deschanel and Sarah Jessica Parker. And I've never mastered the practice of back combing so I have to rely on other help. I picked this product up to help me with volume and I have to say that I haven't really found much difference before and after. I'm not sure if I'm using it correctly, but I'm not fully satisfied with the results. Also my hair was left feeling as though it had product in it(I usually like it when hair product is undetectable). I also wish the spray cap was a continuous spray like hair spray bottles but you have to constantly press the spray cap to release the product. But I'm going to try and use it all up just so I don't feel its a total waste. This product retails for $28 for 4.2 oz.

Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil
I absolutely LOVE this product. In comparison to the many choices of hair oils these days, I believe this one smells the best. Mind you, my hair is quite long so using a product that smells like car fumes or sugar can leave me with a headache because I do have to use a lot of it to cover the length of my hair. In the past I have used the Macadamia Natural Oil brand and Moroccan Oil (I have yet to use Argan oil, but is it the same as Moroccan?), and in my opinion these all work to keep the hair looking healthy. But the smell of this Organix is significantly better than the others. Organix also has a moroccan oil, but the smell isn't as wonderful. Not to mention this brand is a lot cheaper than its counterparts, his can be found at CVS for about $8.

Moroccan Oil Frizz Control
I got this bottle from the spring New Beauty TestTube. I haven't used all that much until recently and I've been really liking it. It helps tame the frizziness and also add a bit of hold(or maybe that was because I used it in conjunction with some hairspray). I usually spray this on the ends of my hair because those parts are usually the most uncontrollable. The ends are also dry as hell because they have been over-died and over-processed. I bet this product would work really well with curly/wavy hair. My hair is straight with a little waviness at times. It's probably safe to say that I could find a similar product on a cheaper scale but this was a welcome surprise in my TestTube. I believe this retails for $32.

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product
I don't know who doesn't get tangles after washing your hair, but my hair is completely unmanageable after washing it. I seriously have one hairbrush that I CANNOT live without because it is the only thing that will untangle my hair after the shower. But this product is a great addition in helping untangle my hair. I'm not sure it was meant to be a hair detangler but this is what I've been using this product for. This product also came in the New Beauty TestTube(my favorite beauty subscription service) and I believe the 2oz I received retails for $12 but I've seen them at Nordstrom Rack for less.

Did you guys find a great hair product recently? Let me know!

    currently i am not using any hair products except for my usual rotations in poos and cons and maybe a tiny bit of styling creme.

    1. i've been really liking hair oils. i'm even contemplating over making my own. if you wanna try one out, sometimes they have sample packets at cvs or rite aid right next to the organix brand oils.
