Updated | Hair Care

Today I wanted to share my updated hair care. It's been well over a year since I shared my previous hair care routine and since then, nearly every single product in that post has changed. I enjoy changing up my products from time to time and changing the products also had a lot to do with me transitioning to cruelty-free items. As my products began to run out I began searching for a cruelty-free item to replace the old ones. Apart from the new products, not much else has changed. I wash my hair one to two times a week, and I only apply heat to my hair 2-3 times a week at most. So without further ado, here is my updated hair care using all cruelty-free products.

Fair warning, I will be sharing a lot of Lush items. This isn't sponsored by them, however, it should be haha.

I am going, to begin with, shampoo. I've been using the I Love Juicy shampoo from Lush for a few months now and I love it. It smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling soft, squeaky clean, and adds a bit of volume to my roots. Like I mentioned I only wash my hair 1-2 times a week so I only use I Love Juicy once a week. When I'm not using this shampoo I use the following.

On my latest currently post I spoke about a shampoo that was sent to me a couple months ago, a Tea Tree Oil shampoo (not pictured). When I'm not using I Love Juicy I'm using this shampoo and I love how much it's helped with the growth of my hair. This shampoo is completely natural and has so many amazing benefits, I highly recommend it. If you're curious to find out more about it please check out that post. I spoke a lot more about it and there is even a sample offer including a free full-sized item for anyone who's interested.

After shampoo that's when conditioner comes in. After rinsing off I Love Juicy, once a week I use the Veganese conditioner that is also from Lush. The first time I used this I wasn't too sure how I was going to like it. The texture of the conditioner is very light-weight and my hair would absorb it immediately leaving me to think I needed more product to disperse to the rest of my hair. Once I rinsed off my hair I felt an immediate difference. My hair was so velvety soft and with time I realized I really didn't need much product at all. This is the perfect light-weight conditioner for those of you who get very oily hair. I never worry if I applied too much to my hair and if it will end up leaving my hair looking greasy either.

At least once a week I apply a hair mask to my hair and always leave it on overnight. I honestly can't remember if I received this in an Ipsy bag or Boxycharm, anywho I have been using the Project Beauty Hairgurt smoothing yogurt hair masque. This hair 'masque' smells of strawberry banana and it's just so lovely. It leaves my hair feeling extremely soft, hydrated and helps tame frizzy hair. I love the consistency of this mask because it isn't too thick or wet feeling. It applies great and evenly to my hair and it's not oily at all. My hair absorbs it perfectly so I don't ever worry about it leaving any residue on my pillows. In the past, I have used hair masks that are too heavy for my hair and then following day when I rinsed it off it left my hair flat from over conditioning it. Hairgurt
doesn't do that to my hair I always look forward to using this. I feel that adding a hair mask to my routine and allowing it to stay on my hair overnight (or more than one night...) has really helped maintain my hair looking and feel healthy.

Everyone should always make sure to use a heat protectant on their hair, especially before using heat products. First, I spray the Briogeo Rosarco milk onto my hair. This spray is a reparative leave-in conditioning spray that helps combat dryness, restoring shine, strengthens hair from root to tip, and also acts as a heat protectant. So many amazing benefits from this lightweight leave-in conditioner. It also smells amazing!

After I use the spray I use a quarter sized drop of the Briogeo Rosarco blow dry perfection & heat protectant crème all throughout my hair. I know it's probably totally not necessary and a bit excessive to use both these products one after another on my hair but I like to. I try to protect and nourish my hair as much as I can. This crème has a few different benefits from the rosarco milk. It smooths the hair, enhances shine, tames frizz, and helps prevent split ends. I definitely see and more than anything feel a difference in my hair after using these products. I love that Briogeo products are also lightweight and I won't have to worry about it weighing down my hair. I definitely want to try out more of their products possibly even their shampoo and conditioner. Their hair mask is next on my list!

Once my hair is styled (curled) sometimes I use a hairspray to hold everything in place. I originally purchased this Sea Spray hair mist solely for the purpose to add volume to my hair. However, it ended up being a multi-purpose spray which worked out great. I use this as a hairspray to hold my curls and it smells amazing! Sometimes I use it to add a bit more volume to my second or third day old hair, but I've just been loving the way my hair hold up when I spritz this all through my hair for hold. I love that it also leaves a healthy shine on my hair without making it look oily.

I didn't include an oil in the photo because I don't have a special oil I use. Most days after styling my hair I like to use a couple of drops of any hair or multi-use oil only on the ends of my hair. That helps give back a bit of moisture from using any previous heat tools. Once again it also leaves a healthy shine on my hair and I love that look.

Lastly, is dry shampoo and I have been using No Drought from Lush for well over two years, maybe even three. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with this product. Love how well it works at absorbing all oils that are left in my hair. It smells great of fresh clean lemons, it gives me a bit of volume after using it, and I find it to last a long time (and I use this a lot!). I hate the packing! This is a bottle of loose powder so when you use it you simply pop open the cap and sprinkle it on top of your head. So believe me when I say this can get messy. Besides that one con, this product is amazing! Since I don't wash my hair often I use a lot of dry shampoo and this has been my absolute favorite. I always recommend it to everyone.

Have you tried any of these items? What are some of your favorite hair products?
