Biolage Balm on ends before using hairdryer. Fanie Shampoo. Apple cider vinegar rinse 2x/month. Infusium 23 spray for color-treated fine hair after every shampoo. Paul Mitchell color moisturizer 1-2x/week. Biolage Balm as deep conditioner after shampoo 2x/week for 2-3 minutes & add liquid Protein Filler (get at Sally's beauty supply) smooshed in on top of conditioner for another 2-3 minutes to maintain color between touchups. Rinse every time with cool to cold water to close hair cuticle & hair dryer diffuser set on cool. Ceramic brushes to protect hair from drying out.

I have dry hair from coloring and bleaching. My hair stylist said it looks really healthy for someone who color their hair that often, but I think it looks damaged. Anyway, I love REdken shampoos. I don't re buy the same bottle. I switch my shampoo when i run out. My other favorite shampoo is Bumble and Bumble's alojoba shampoo. It's soo thick and it makes my hair so silky. It's so expensive though, and i think i'm gonna stop using that. I love to experiment new stuff. Of course i cannot live without conditioners and leave in conditioner. My hair would die. My favorite haircare line of all right now is icon. You can check it out at www.iconproducts.com It's hard to find. I live in southern california so i can basically get anything in LA, but i know they don't sell that online or in most salons. Have u guys heard of this line before. I absolutely love it. Its the best for me right now.

I don't fuss with my hair too much, but here's my HG products:

shampoo: make me smooth SheShe Poo

conditioner: make me smooth SheShe Dish

styling products: make me smooth SheShe Do, garnier fructis sleek & shine serum

deep conditioner: plain olive oil from the grocery store. I apply a generous amount to dry hair and let it steep for 30 minutes - 2 hours before washing and conditioning as I normally do. makes my hair silky soft

I have my hair trimmed every 6 or so weeks, and I have thick wavy color treated hair

Here's what I'm using right now:

shampoo: Aveda Shampure (LOVE the smell) alternating with Paul Mitchell's tea tree oil shampoo (feels tingly, smells minty) and Suave clarifying

conditioner: Aveda curessence and Suave awapuwi (sp?) (knockoff of PM)

detangler/leave in conditioner: Paul Mitchell; I LOVE this stuff. It cuts frizz and makes my hair very soft, and it's gentle enough to use on my 22 mo old.

gel/conditioner: Aveda confixor; it's light and smells incredible

shine serum: bed head girl toys (smells yummy)

What I need: a good deep conditioner/hair mask, hair/finishing spray, heat protector

Hairy type is med/fine, wavy and oily at the roots.

My HG products for hair are Aveda Rosemary Mint shampoo and conditioner (adds volume and great for frequent use) and Aveda Be Curly for styling. I just put some of this on my wet hair, tie it up in a towel until its almost dry then let it air dry for the rest of the time. The result is lovely wavy hair with volume, now I just need something to give it hold!
