My Current Hair Care Products

My sister is a hairdresser.  She buys all of our hair products at a professional beauty supply store that offers discounted products to licensed stylists.  We usually buy whichever brands and lines that happen to be on sale when we need an item.  So, we are always trying new hair care products, although we tend to stick to certain brands like Redken, Matrix, and Rusk.  

Right now, I am using Rusk Deepshine Color Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner.

 This shampoo and conditioner is a sulfate-free formula for color-treated hair.  Sulfate-free has been a big trend in hair care for the past couple of years.  This line also contains argan oil, which seems to be in every hair product these days due to the Morrocan Oil craze.  I have used other sulfate-free shampoos/conditioners, and so far, this has been my favorite.  It leaves my hair very calm and smooth.  However, like the other sulfate-free shampoos that I have tried, I found that half way through the bottle my hair started feeling gross, like it had build-up or something.  I usually just switch to Tea Tree Oil shampoo for a wash here and there and it's back to working like a charm.   





 I always use Goody brushes.  This is one that I got cheap somewhere.  Sometimes I find them at the Dollar Tree, so, that might be where I got this one... It's great for blow-drying and styling. 



I also use a wooden bristle brush for smoothing my hair.  My dad had a brush like this when I was little and I used to sneak and use his.

I use a little bit of Rusk Being Warped Wax to pull my hair back.  It adds some weight and control to my fine hair, but doesn't make it stiff.  This is an old standby of mine, I've been using it religiously for about five years now. 
I use basic run-of-the-mill black hair elastics for ponytails.
I finish my look off with a touch of Rusk Deepshine Hairspray.  I really like this hairspray because it has a very light and flexible hold.  It also smells really good! This came in a special boxed set with the shampoo and conditioner.  I doubt that I would buy the shampoo/conditioner again, but I'll definitely buy this hairspray again!  I'd say this is one of the best hairsprays I've tried over the past year.

So, those are my current hair products.  What are your favorite brands or products?
