Worth It: Hair Products

All of my life I have had wavy, dry, frizzy hair. Actually, for most of my childhood I just thought I had frizzy uncontrollable hair that could only be tamed with a blow dryer... Big mistake! The constant heat completely fried my hair! Eventually, I was introduced to "mousse", which turned my hair wavy. And wavy it stayed!

I find myself constantly switching out my shampoo and conditioner because my hair conforms to products easily (after a while they no longer have the same effect on my hair). However, there are three products that I repurchase over and over again. No matter how many times I use them I still get the same great result!

Without further a due, here are my three favorite hair products:

Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Curl Envy Perfect Curl Cream: Well that was a mouthful... seriously how many times did I write "curl"? Name aside..., I thought I would start with my most recent discovery. I've been using this product for three to four consecutive months now (I just keep coming back to it). This product hold up to its claims: eliminates frizz, adds moisture, adds shine, and fights humidity. The humidity part is a big plus for me because I live in such a humid environment and, up to now no other product has been able to provide this "protection". It defines my waves/curls nicely without leaving my hair feeling "crunchy" or weighing it down. Honestly, the only con about this cream is the scent. Don't get me wrong, it's not an offensive odor; I'm just not crazy about it (but, that could just be me).

L'Oreal EverSleek Precious Oil Treatment: This oil treatment is a mixture of argan, sunflower, and olive oil. Its main purpose it to prevent frizz and condition the hair. Also, it's formulated for all hair types. I like to apply to this oil directly onto towel-dried hair and before the Curl Cream. I also make sure to concentrate the product on my ends. I will say that this product might not suit everyone... some might find that its too greasy or that it can weigh your hair down. If this is your case, you can always try the Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Weightless Healing Dry Oil (seriously, what's up with these long name?) I used this "weightless" oil for a long time and it was a great product but, I find that L'Oreal's EverSleek does a better job at conditioning my hair.

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask: Ok, I love this product!!! I remember using this hair mask once a very long time ago and liking it but, for some reason I stopped using it. Oh how I wish I hadn't! It would have prevented so many bad hair day... But, the important thing is that it made its way back into my life! I use this hair mask once or even twice a week, if my hair looks extra dry or frizzy. Just substitute it with your normal conditioner and leave it in for about five minutes. It'll leave your hair extra soft & shiny. I truly believe that this product has saved my hair. It has never looked and felt healthier.

One of the things that I love most about these products is that they're affordable. Yup, they're all from the drugstore! How great is that? Also, I've included links to the items that are still available online (just click on the item's name).
