Healthy Hair Tips

I have no patience for hair maintenance, so I am know I'm VERY lucky to have straight hair which results in a very simple caring routine (thanks mom and dad!). But I do like using some hair products to take care of  my highlights, make my hair look shiny and flaunt some waves once in a while. So if you are looking for new hair products to try (and you are as low maintenance in the hair department as I am), here are my favorites:

Garnier Fructis Flat Iron Express - Garnier recently sent me this along with its shampoo and conditioner, which I originally thought were meant to be used just before flat ironing your hair. But after using it for almost two weeks I found out this is the perfect leave in conditioner for anyone with naturally straight hair. First of all, it smells SO good. My boyfriend actually can't stop smelling my hair whenever I use any of these products. And most importantly, it's a time saver! I usually need to roughly blow dry my hair to make it look "tamed", but not with this leave in. I just distribute a quarter size of the product through my damped hair and then let it air dry until it looks as if I actually brushed it... Hah! Definetely will be repurchasing.

Batiste Dry Shampoo - My holy grail hair product and #1 recommendation for any girl who is constantly on the go. Not only does it come in a huge variety of hair colors, this smells so good and it makes your hair look like second day hair even if it is on its fourth. Don't judge! We've all done it! Right? (Say yes please!)

Tresemmé Thermal Creations Heating Spray - I don't heat my hear too often, but when I do I prefer big bouncy waves that can only stay put if I don't use heavy products. This is why I use a super light weight heating spray like this one. Even though it is a little sticky, I have found that this is the best way to achieve Kardashian-Curls status for a longer period of time.

Curling Iron - And talking about waves! How do I achieve big bouncy waves that last more than an hour? With a super thin curling iron. I really don't have a preference, but I do like using ceramic ones. I find that if I just brush little curls they turn into bigger, fuller and long lasting ones than if I just use a big curling iron.

Now what about you? Any easy tricks you currently use in your hair?
