Ceramides, Healthy Hair Care

Hair Product Recommendations.


I am often asked what products would I suggest for someone new to their healthy hair journey and I always avoid answering this question because I am a firm believer that what works for some does not work for all (or more specifically you).  So while I don’t mind sharing what I use, I don’t quite feel comfortable telling you to, “go out and by X product because it will change your hair life.”  Instead I decided to share all the products that (1) I have used during my hair journey and (2) were good to me (i.e. I’d give it at least 1 thumb up).  I don’t use all of these products in my weekly hair regimen because I ended up favoring one product over the others but I would gladly go back to any of these products if my current favorite were suddenly not available.
Hopefully this will help those of you out there that are new to the healthy hair game and are still trying to find the products that are right for you.  These are products I would consider worth researching to see if it’s right for your hair needs.  Check out my past hair products after the jump…

  1. I can't remember which one had the most slip. None of them are horrible, but none of them are great when it comes to slip. …I have noticed that the Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor does have good slip (although you didn't really ask about the protein treatments).

  2. Kim Just wanted to say I am enjoying your blog and have told all my lady friends at book club. You give GREAT INFO.
