Fall Hair Guide: Adding Moisture To Your Hair After Summer Heat X Moroccanoil
Today I'm talking all about my fall hair care guide. I'll be discussing my start to finish on the products I use for care, how I style with those products, and how I maintain in between washes. I'll also be talking about why Moroccanoil, the brand that revolutionized argan oil, is the key to a silky, manageable, and radiant hair.
First let me give you guys some back ground. I have fine hair but I have ALOT of it. Hair like mine gets frizzy with the slightest hint of humidity in the air. My scalp tends to be dry and I've struggled to find a product that nourishes my scalp and hair without leaving my hair oily at the roots. Not to mention that my hair has seen a drastic change since having my little ones.
The first time I used their famous Moroccanoil treatment, I knew immediately that it would be my new favorite hair oil. It improves manageability, significantly shortens dry time, controls my flyaways, and radiates soft shine. It's the original foundation for hair care. That was years ago. In the meantime I've struggled to find hair care that works for all my needs. Why I never purchased the entire collection of Moroccanoil bewilders me. I just think about all the bad hair days I could've avoided.
I started using the rest of Moroccanoils entire collection a few weeks ago. When I tell you that my hair had NEVER EVER EVER felt this silky, soft, and manageable, you don't know how serious I am. I talked about it on Snap and Insta stories. I've never had my hair feel this wonderful, even after a trip to the salon. Below are the products I use, the order I use them in, and a little bit about each of them.
Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner- This is for ALL hair types. It cleanses gently and the antioxidant argan oil moisturizes as it replenishes the nutrients in your hair. It's rich in Vitamin A and Red Algae to slow the effects of hair aging and combat free radicals. (All my city girls, hope your paying attention) After shampooing, I apply the conditioner mid-length to ends and let it work it's magic for 1-2 minutes. I wash my hair only once a week. Although, washing your hair only once a week will not work for everyones depending on your hair type and daily activities.
Intense Hydrating Mask- This is for medium to thick dry hair. They also have a Weightless Hydrating Mask for fine dry hair or those with lighter colored hair. I use the Intense Mask because while my hair is fine it's also really thick. I applied this after shampooing and towel drying my hair. I use a wide tooth comb to distribute it root to ends and let it sit for 5-7 minutes before rinsing. This can be used once to twice a week in place of conditioner. I've started using it every other week as the health of my hair is finally being restored by the Linseed Extract. (Derived from flax seed, it's an essential fatty acid that help improve the health of hair) This mask will leave your hair feeling smooth without any sticky residue.
Hydrating Style Cream- Next, I apply one-two pumps of the Hydrating Style Cream on damp towel dried hair. I use this if I intend to blow dry my hair or not. Although, for me personally, I always try to avoid heat when possible and especially since I use hot tools to style. This style cream does NOT weigh your hair down like so many do. It's another one of my secrets to keep a long lasting style so that you CAN avoid having to apply more heat to your hair than you need. The goal is hair health which in turn of course leads to beautiful locks. This Hydrating Cream is perfect for fall and winter with anti-static ingredients and a light weight silicone (natural and derived from sand) that helps to achieve perfectly sleek and smooth results.
Moroccanoil Treatment- The foundation for hair care and the product we all know and love. This is for all hair types but they also offer a Moroccanoil Treatment Light for fine or light-colored hair. As a style blogger, I'm constantly in different weather conditions for shoots and many times have 6-10 hour days doing so. I have a "Blogger Bag" similar to a Barney Bag I keep in my car with all of the essentials I need for shoot days or days in general when I may need beauty pick me ups. In that bag is a small essential oil vile that keeps my Moroccanoil Treatment. You can get these small glass bottles anywhere that sells essential oils. (Whole Foods) I most literally don't go anywhere without it. Anyways, I apply this to my damp hair after the style cream. I apply a dime size amount from mid-length to ends. You could also apply to dry hair after styling and this is how I manage flyaways at the roots. I apply my dime sized amount again mid-length to ends and then very lightly apply the residual that is left on my hands to those root flyaways. It's important to remember that this product has both styling and conditioning benefits that really sets Moroccanoils formula over all other hair care brands!
Dry Shampoo For Dark And Light Tones- One of the biggest complaints I hear (especially from brunettes) is that dry shampoo is flaky and leaves a residue. Rest assured this is NOT that. It instantly refreshes and revitalizes extending the length in-between washes. EVERY woman NEEDS this. It absorbs oil and product build up leaving NO dull residue behind. It instantly volumizes and deodorizes. Spray 6-8 inches away from dry roots. Last week I had so many Insta story replies about my hair for the day and guys, that was week and a half old hair with this dry shampoo.
Dry Texture Spray- This is a dry argan oil infused spray that gives your hair texture for beautifully undone styles with lasting hold. This is the product I'm using in the last shot on my post. I love texture sprays as much as the next girl but I've had a hard time finding one that leaves a gritty but not dirty feeling finish. This is the perfect balance. Especially if you love sea salt sprays but don't care for the feel of them. This Texture Spray is the best product to achieve that edgy look without compromising quality and feel of your hair. A foundational product to use for up do's, braids, or just that tousled dimensional look like I did above. You know the, "I'm not really trying to have fabulous hair, I just do," kinda look. ;) I apply it 8-10 inches away a tousle for extra volume.
Have you guys ever used any of Moroccanoils products before? If you have I'd love to know your thoughts!
