silky hair treatment

i don't know any girl who wouldn't want silky hair. i mean, frizz-free hair that is really soft to run your fingers through, feels like silk, and smells amazing is pretty much what i say when i describe my ideal hair situation.

i also am a product junkie. wait, let me revise that. i don't have a ton of products that i put in my hair every day or have a complicated ritual to get my hair ready everyday. but i am always trying new products that will make my routine simple with maximum result. 

my routine is: shampoo, conditioner, (towel dry hair), then argan oil.

simple, right? 

the products i use now make my hair super silky (aka, all i want to do is touch my hair all day) and wonderful smelling.

after trying A BUNCH of different shampoos, conditioners, leave-in conditioners, lotions, and a bunch of other products, i am happy share with you a combination of products you would be remiss if you did not try.  

first off is the shampoo/conditioner duo:

surprised? i have this thing against the suave brand where i think it's super cheap and will never work.
i picked these up when i they were on sale ($2.47) at wal-mart and i didn't expect much. but THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!! the smell is great and they really live up to the keratin name they carry on the bottle. these are supposed to help maintain your hair once you have the keratin treatment done, but for me they totally calmed down my frizz and made my hair smell amazing. they also help smooth your hair and contribute to the softness.

you can buy it at wal-mart or amazon online (at amazon you buy 2 shampoo bottles for around $7)

after you towel dry your hair, apply a VERY LITTLE amount of this:

a little bit goes a long way with this product, which is great, because it costs $7.99 at Target. (which is expensive for me)  this also has an amazing smell (ask my husband, he'll tell you) and it is wonderful if you have thicker more unruly hair. it makes your hair super-de-duper silky. 'nuff said.
if you want to read more about this product, go here and you will probably buy the item off the website after reading the reviews. 

so that, ladies (and perhaps a few gentlemen) is my hair routine. i don't blow dry, flat iron, or curl my hair (although i've heard that all 3 products work miracles with heat tools). these 3 products cost a total of about $13 and i've had them for months. the oil i've had for at least 6 months and it still has quite a bit in the bottle. 


  1. Do you still use olive oil? Shall I ask my mommy to bring some over? Cannot wait to see you Jessica!
