Short Hair Don't Care

So, I took the plunge and hacked off over a foot of hair...and you know what, I could not be happier. I've always had ridiculously long hair (we're talking down to my bum) and have never really changed it drastically in any way. I was either too scared or was just worried about what others would think...which is silly because it's hair and it always grows back. I love styling my hair now and it literally takes less than 20 it.

If you're thinking of chopping off some locks here are a few gems that will work a treat. 

Wide Tooth Comb: I prefer a wide tooth comb to regular bristle brush. I find that it doesn't pull at my hair and I have less breakage overall. 

Rusk St8 Anti-Frizz/Curl Lotion: Any anti-frizz lotion will do, but I particularly like this one and have been using it for years. It really cuts down on my frizz and helps to straighten my hair more easily when blow drying. This is available at beauty supply stores and Target.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: This product has some serious hype around it but it really is good stuff. I don't like texturizing spray or really any type of hair product that I can feel in my hair, so this is perfect because doesn't feel like anythings in your hair but gives insane volume. This one is a bit trickier to can either be ordered online (Amazon), purchased at select hair salons or Bloomingdales

Paul Mitchell Soft Style Heat and Seal: This is just your basic heat protectant. I like this one because it sprays a very fine mist and it doesn't leave any residue. I use this one when my hair is wet, but you can use it on dry hair as well. You can buy this at beauty supply stores and I've also seen it at CVS

Paul Mitchell Express Style Hot Off the Press: This is a thermal protectant as well but it gives a bit of hold to your curl or style and it can also be used as a finishing spray. This isn't meant for wet hair so that's why I use the other one if I'm blow drying my hair. Like the Heat and Seal, this can be purchased either at your beauty supply store or at CVS

Moroccan Oil Treatment: Another product deserving of the hype. I've used about 5 large bottles of this and 10+ of the travel size one. It helps keep my hair soft and in great condition...I really can not say enough good things about this product. This can be purchased at beauty supplies stores, salons or online. 

BC Bonacure Hairtherapy Amino Cell Rebuild Repair Rescue: Talk about a mouth full. Again this is another product I've used a long time. It gives your ends that silky "fresh cut feeling" and really minimizes split ends. This can be purchased at beauty supplies stores and I've also seen this at Target

 Batiste Dry Shampoo Dark & Deep Brown: Can we just take a moment and thank the dry shampoo gods for this one...seriously, this is a game changer. I have never found a dry shampoo that actually works for my dark brown hair until this one. None of that funky greyish white residue here folks, just oil free hair with some oomph. This one was a bit difficult to find for a "drugstore" dry shampoo ...I found mine at a beauty supply store, but it can also be spotted at CVS.

Kenra Volume Spray Super Hold 25: This smells lovely and is a great hairspray, but honestly any hairspray will do...this is just the one I had on hand. Even though this is an "extra hold" it doesn't leave your hair crispy. This can be purchased at beauty supply stores, salons or online.

And last but not least...

Nume Lustrum 5 in One Curling Wand: I love this! Whatever type of curl you want whether it be loose, tight, wavy, or messy this bad boy has you covered. This is originally $280 on but keep an eye out on because you can get it for $180, which is where I bought mine. 

That about sums up my must have products and tools for freshly chopped hair. All of the prices will vary on these products depending on where you purchase them.

So, if you're flirting with the idea of a new 'do...go for it. There is no better time than the present and it can be surprisingly liberating.
