Sense of Sarah: Hair Products

Since I updated my blog layout in October, I added a few new categories on the left hand side.  One of them has been empty since October--the Sense of Sarah link.  This is a new series that I am starting where I'm going to be writing posts that center around something that is uniquely me.  Something that makes me...me :)

My first one today is on the hair products I use.  When I had really long hair I never used any hair products.  I sometimes used a heat protectant for my flat iron.  Just to let you know how easy my hair was to maintain, when I was in college I only washed my hair at night so I could sleep in later in the morning.  I would just wake up and straighten it before heading to class or going wherever I needed to go that day.

My hair was still pretty long when I got married but it was super blonde.  The one thing I got commented on the most about my hair was how healthy it looked.  I can credit that to the girl who does my hair and the shampoo that I use!  

Pictured are the products I LOVE:


1. Proclaim Glossing  Conditioner /Shampoo :   
Pictured here is the conditioner but I use the separate shampoo too.  My secret to super healthy (fake blonde) hair is ethnic shampoo!  It really has helped my hair to stay healthy.

2. Aveda Phomollient :
I put this in my hair after I towel dry it right before I dry my hair.  Since I have short hair that is more high maintenance, I tease my hair a little each day.  This gives my hair something to hold onto when I tease it and helps it stay all day long.

3. Aveda Brilliant Spray:

I use this as a detangler before I comb out my damp hair.  A few sprays and the wet comb glides right through my hair!  This spray actually helps to protect your hair against damage, but I love that it detangles my hair, too.

4. Aveda Control Force Hair Spraiy:
I never...I repeat, never used hair spray on my hair before I cut it off.  I hated it.  I hated how it made my hair feel, and if I accidentally sprayed too much, then I was stuck with nasty feeling hair the rest of the day.  Well not this stuff.  You can brush it out and respray if you need too--but that doesn't weaken the hold.  It's so weird how they created the perfect product, but they did. 

5. A Pick: 
I use this everyday when I tease my hair!  I might have paid a dollar and it's so useful

  1. Oh my goodness, I love the idea of a "sense of sarah"! Such a great idea. I need to check out those products...I cannot believe you never used hairspray before you chopped your hair! That is just crazy talk!

  3. Love this series! I agree, I use way more products when my hair is short! My hair is naturally a curly-mess so it takes a few more products to tame mine ;)

  4. I'm so glad you're doing this series, this is so fun!! I'm also shocked you never used hair spray! I wish mine would hold curl without it. :)
