Daily Hair Care

Y'all, my next big project is in the mail on its way here and I can barely keep it a secret! Actually, I have sort of already revealed it on here in a previous post, but whatever...I am still so freaking excited. 
So I have now had short hair for a week and a half, and I am still not totally used to it, but I am learning. It's all about the baby steps, like learning that the previous amount of shampoo my hair required could last me a few days with these short locks. Another thing that I have learned is that there is really not a lot of variety when it comes to styling. Seriously, it's like do you want a center or side part? Flipped out, straight, or curled under? Ringlets...yeah right. It's not the worst thing, but it is definitely different.
One thing that I find myself wanting is something that I have not owned or used in a pretty long time...a hair straightener. I have naturally stick straight hair and I just never found myself needing one. Actually, there was that period of time in high school that everyone straightened their hair, regardless of how straight it was, and I participated wholeheartedly in that trend. However, come college it just wasn't really necessary unless I slept with wet hair in a messy bun. Now, I am in the market for a straightener and goodness am I overwhelmed...there are soooo many of them! Luckily, I was able to ask around a bit and find one that I think will work for my super limited requirements, but that got me started on restocking a bunch of products that I had run out of or been running low on.

Daily routines seem to not be that important, but honestly, just harming your hair a bit every day adds up. I love, love, love how healthy my hair is right now and I want to maintain that as it continues to grow out. There are so many products out there and so many different hair textures and styles that I could never pretend to list what each person needs on a daily basis, but there are some core essentials that most people could use. Yes, there are a lot of volumizing products in this set because I believe in big hair, despite gravity and the perpetual state of flat-ness that my hair seems to enjoy.  (Oh and no, 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner did not make the list...thank god! and snaps to anyone who just caught that Legally Blonde: The Musical reference)
Do y'all have any hair care necessities? Anything that I should add to my routine?

  1. I like to use 100% Pure Argan Oil (you can get it at Whole Foods!) on the ends of my's kind of the same idea as Moroccan oil, but a whole lot cheaper! It keeps my ends nice and smooth, especially when I straighten my hair, plus it doesn't break the bank!
