Works For me Wednesday - Haircare Products

Apparently I am a sucker for haircare products.

"Hi! My name is Diann and I am a haircare product-aholic"

I am always trying to find just that right product. You know the one that makes your hair look perfect. I haven't found it yet. So, I have a shelf in my linen closet filled with creams, gels, muds, sprays, lotions and some things I am not even sure what they are let alone what they are supposed to do.

So recently I spoke to a hairdresser and asked him what his favorite product was for fullness and giving hair some extra staying power. He told me that the best thing he uses is hair conditioner. I told him that I already use conditioner. I was looking for a product to use after I got out of the shower. He said that's what he is talking about too. He uses conditioner, a small amount and rubs his hands together and then works it through the hair and then styles it.

Just regular old conditioner? Yup, just regular old conditioner. He told me a couple of brands he prefers but, mainly just a decent hair conditioner will work.

So, then I talked to another hairdresser, a woman this time because well, maybe the guy didn't know what he was talking about. She told me the same thing. And she also said she really likes a good rich hand cream to use instead of a gel or mud.

Well, I tried the conditioner trick. I have long wavy hair and wanted a smoother straighter look. So, I worked the conditioner in and blow dried my hair out and it worked! Not to mention, it really helped with the flyaway hair. I also tried the hand cream trick and it to worked just fine.

So, if anyone out there is a hairdresser and has more thrifty tips for us un-savvy and naive haircare product suckers, please share!
