sometimes you need a little boost

So as I have said before, I have the suckiest hair known to man. You may not notice, but it truely is so damaged and literally does not grow. Its been the same length for yearsssss. I've had extensions to help the process along, & it sorta worked, but they were sooo pricey I needed a cheaper alternative. After my hairstylist who I've had practically my whole life, QUIT!! I had to find a new lady. I love my salon, Dexterity & wanted to stay there, so I now go to Lindsay Wade && I love her! She is adorable & is helping me with my quest for long hair. I HIGHLY recommend her :)

I am a firm believer in hair products. They protect, strengthen, & enhance my hair. I decided to stick with what I know & even added some new products to my daily routine. I normally don't like to buy expensive shampoos or conditioners cause I go through them like water. So for now Herbal Essences is gonna have to do. I'll keep you updated on the progress. Let's all pray this summer blesses me with with long, luscious hair :)

1. Biotin
I picked up these babies this morning after talking to a ton of girlfriends who swear by it. Biotin is a B-complex Vitamin that is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Therefore strengthening nails, skin, & hair. It set me back a whole 7 dollass. Definitely worth a try right??

2. Bumble & Bumble Styling Lotion
I looooove this stuff. I put this in my hair after I shower & while my hair is still damp. It makes my hair incredibly soft and moisturizes the ends soo well. Also, makes my hair easier to style.

3. Aveda Confixor Liquid Gel

I really only use this stuff when I go home to Salt Lake..... cause its my mom's ha. But she has used it for years & has amazing hair because of it. I use it after I shower & while my hair is damp. A little goes a long way & this stuff lasts forever. I feel like it makes my hair super thick & have tons of volume.

4. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray

Sexy, salty, sun-dried, windswept styles- whenever, wherever. Beach hair for us Utahans :) Love love.

5. Aveda Volumizing Tonic
I use this while I'm round brushing my hair. I just spray a little at the roots & it totally gives me so much volume & adds shine. Plus I love the smell. Its like a musty kind of scent.... which sounds way nasty, but for some reason I can't get enough of it!

6. Bumble & Bumble Shine On (and on)
I tried this last Friday when I was at the salon & its awesome! It does exactly what it says! My hair was shiny for days! I don't own this product, but I'm thinking I might need to go get some!

7. Good old H2O
I try to drink plenty of water everyday to not only help my hair & skin, but also clean out my insides ;) And maybe I also stick to Smartwater in hopes of looking like Jen Aniston after!

Do you have any favorite hair products or regimens you suggest to try??
