If you can’t tell from recent history, hair has been on the brain lately. With a refreshed hair cut and a little bit of color, it’s hard to not want to switch up your hair routine at least a little bit, right? I thought I’d share what I’m using on my hair lately, especially now that it’s getting much drier here and I really have to bust out the “good” stuff to keep hydrated.
10 Favorite Hair Products
In the Shower
Moroccanoil Repair Shampoo – I just started using this and so far am loving it. It’s paraben and sulfate free, feels like it really gets my hair clean, yet somehow leaves it feeling silky smooth. I guess the only downside is the cost – it’s a bit more than I normally would spend on shampoo, but I’m thinking it may be worth the splurge to re-up. (Amazon, $24.50)
Moroccanoil Repair Conditioner – Same story as the shampoo. Really liking this too, though with the extra deep conditioning I’ve been doing I haven’t had to rely on this conditioner alone as much as I would in the warmer seasons. (Amazon, $20.14)
Hair Food Moisturizing Hair Mask – You may remember this from my Influenster vlog, but I finally remembered to pop this in the shower to try it out. Not only does it smell amazing, but it leaves my hair feeling super soft. Plus, it’s paraben and sulfate free and can be found at Target! (Target, $11.99)
MONAT Rejuveniqe Intensive Oil* – This is a hair and skin oil treatment which I’ve been using on the ends of my hair after every shower, plus on rough spots on my skin! I love multi-use products like this – I can tell my hair is really grateful for the extra love, and my elbows and dry patches are too. And you know that residue and mess that a lot of oils leave? Yeah, not this one. It basically absorbs at the speed of light. The only con I see with this is its cost prohibitive to be able to use a ton of this, since replacement cost is not inexpensive. The upside is that a little goes a very long way, so one vial could last you many, many months. (Monat Global, $99)
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – This came in my Ipsy bag, but I’d also heard rave reviews from fellow Birchbox subscribers and I’d already ordered a full-size. I absolutely love this – it does leave a little white residue if you get a little spray happy in one spot, but I find it does a lot better job absorbing oil over some of the other dry shampoos I have tried. (Drugstore.com, $19.79)
SEVEN Luxury Haircare Seal Lotion* – As you may remember from my video on Friday, these are brand new to me styling products that I’m really loving. The seal lotion seals the cuticle and provides a thermal barrier for heat based styling tools. Plus, it smells great. (SEVEN Haircare)
SEVEN Luxury Haircare Boost Lotion* – The boost lotion really helps lock in your style – it’s basically a lightweight hair spray that holds without getting stiff or crunchy. I’m using this after curling my hair and it works perfectly. (SEVEN Haircare)
Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray – When I’m more in the mood for a product to spray and go, I go for a Sea Salt spray. My favorite is from my very first Birchbox, and is the Davine’s brand. Not only does it smell like heaven (well, marshmallows actually, but that’s basically synonymous) it works really well to add a little texture to damp hair. (Amazon, $20.56)
Wet Brush – My Wet Brush is looking a little ratty from all the dry shampoo I’ve combed through it and the label is long gone, but it only shows how much use this gets. I basically ditched my old brush as soon as this one came in my Popsugar Must Have Box forever ago, and it’s the best thing. It’s so much more gentle when my hair is wet or damp, and brushing out tangles is less painful too. (Amazon, $8.98)
Tangle Teezer – Speaking of tangles, I tend to get them at the nape of my neck quite often in the winter. I assume it has something to do with the dryness and my hair not having enough moisture to not get “stuck” together. Anyways, this tool is awesome. All the extra little “teeth” on the brush help to pull out knots quickly and with much less pain. (Amazon, $8.20)

I’ve been wanting to try Morrocanoil products for so long! I’ve heard such great things about them.
I’m really impressed with their shampoo and conditioner so far, and also have samples of a few of their styling products which seem to be great too!
Nice list! Hate when you get a product you like then it stops working. Always nice to change it up but never know what next to try. And anything sulfate free bonus!
Definitely – I try to avoid sulfates if I can, though it can be tricky!
Ah, cannot wait to try the Tangle Teezer– hoping it works well in my thick hair! Also love that you mentioned Moroccan oil- it’s a fave :)
I have thick hair as well and it’s been a life saver on those little tangles. Works so much better than a big brush!
I don’t use a lot of product on my hair but I love ANYTHING moroccanoil! :)
Moroccanoil is definitely good stuff! :)
I just got the moroccan oil shampoo in a beauty box and I can’t wait to try it out!
Oh fun, I hope you like it!
I have been curious about Morrocanoil products for quite some time. I may need to give them a try. I love doing oil treatments on my hair so I will look into the MONAT Rejuveniqe Intensive Oil, although they are pretty pricey, huh? :)
Haha yes, definitely on the pricey side! Argan Oil or the Moroccanoil treatment is probably a little more budget-friendly! ;)
I also love the SEAL lotion from SEVEN! And I’ll have to try your dry shampoo rec…I only wash my hair once or twice a week so I really need to start using some!
I wash my hair about twice a week too, and dry shampoo really helps keep the roots looking less greasy! I love Klorane, but have had good experience with Oscar Blandi and Batiste as well. :)
I use Moroccan Oil too. I started using it years ago because I fell in love with the smell but it does amazing things for my hair too. However….I recently switched to a new shampoo and conditioner that does even better for my hair. Living Proof. I’m thinking about doing a post on it soon to review it. It’s the first shampoo I’ve used that totally lives up to ALL of it’s promises. Amazing but way expensive. Worth it to me though.
Hi V! It does smell nice doesn’t it? I’ll definitely have to check out Living Proof after I finish the Moroccanoil shampoo/conditoner. I’ve seen that at Sephora and have always been curious! It looks like they have smaller sample sizes you can buy, so I may have to pick those up and see the results ;)
My hair has been extra frizzy lately, so I think it’s time to try some new products and mix things up. Thanks for these suggestions!
Of course, happy to share them! :)
I’ve looked at the Moroccanoil products a few times so it’s nice hearing another positive review! One of these days I’ll have to treat myself.
Definitely, I think it’s a nice little treat :)
I just wrote all of these down! Between myself and my daughters, we need hair help… well, maybe not the newbie, but my toddler has crazy curls but thin hair and me… let’s not get started! Thank you for all the ideas- I will be masking this hair and then taming it in no time!
Ah, love that! Hope some of them will help, and feel free to let me know if you need any other recommendations! Happy to help. :)
I love ALL Moroccan oil products! You should try their body lotion as well! :)
I didn’t even realize they had body lotion – I will definitely check that out!
So many products, so little time! I love Morocan oil’s products, they are honestly the best!
I’m definitely loving them so far – glad you like them too!
Great list! I need to try some new hair products.
Thanks Karissa! :)
I need to get some of these for my really insane hurr.
Haha, you’ll definitely have ot let me know if you try any of them!
Great picks! I love my wet brush!
Thanks Megan, the Wet Brush is a life and time saver!
I too have been loving the moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner – has worked wonders for me so has Argan oil. Great list of products
Thanks Myrabev, so glad Moroccanoil has worked for you too!
What a fabulous list!!! I use a Sea Salt Spray (not the same brand as you, I use Not Your Mother’s), but I just love it!!
I’ve heard good things about the spray from Not Your Mother’s too! I’ll have to check that one out when I run out!
Gosh, I’m so useless with my hair. Shampoo, conditioner and a good blow dry are all I use – I know I need to look into using more heat protection treatments though!
I definitely don’t use these daily, most of the time I’m a shampoo/conditioner or dry shampoo kind of girl, just when I’m using heat to style! ;)
I have not tried any of these, but have been looking for a hair teaser… thanks for sharing ;o)
Of course, glad it was helpful! :)
I swear that if Moroccan hair products were to cease to exist I might die. I LOVE those products. Expensive as hell, but oh so worth every drop.
Glad to hear they work so well for you! So far I’m still really impressed too!
Moroccan oil is awesome! I use that in conjunction with RedKen serums to protect hair from heat treatment (e.g. drying, curling) and to improve hair glossiness. And then since I have color-treated hair, I apply a mask every week or so to help it regain its shine.
Your routine sounds awesome, Lauriel! I’m definitely going to look into the Redken serum!
oooh I’m wondering if I even have 10 fav hair products. Let’s see – lol:
1. Tangle Teezer hair brush (I see you have one!!)
2. Aveda anti-humidity balm (so good to tame frizz on a rainy day)
3. Some “cavier” cream from Sephora, I forget what it’s called…
4. Aveda shampoo/conditioner
5. Principess dry shampoo (DryBar works ok too)
6. Aveda Air Control hair spray
7. Mini bobbi pins from Sallys Beauty
8 (omg I have a lot more than I thought I would)Hair straightener? Does that count?
9. My 4 in 1 hair curler
10. Hair dryer of course…
Loving your list! I’ll have to check out the Aveda Anti-Humidity Balm… definitely need that in the Seattle rain! I also will check out the Principessa dry shampoo – haven’t heard of that before!
I love that little hairbrush too!!! I bought mine at Sephora and it’s shiny gold and pretty!!! ;)
Oh pretty! I wish they had gold when I got mine! :)
Nice list. I want to try that sea salt spray.
It’s one of my faves – it gives great texture and smells good too! :)
