The Hair Care Products I Can’t Live Without

Rectangle 58

Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

Fit + Fueled

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

As I’ve gotten a little older (and, hopefully, wiser), I’ve started to put a little more thought and effort into my hair care routine. Even just a few years ago, I’d grab whatever I found on sale at CVS or Target without putting much thought into it. These days, I’ve definitely moved past buying the cheapest bottle of shampoo on the shelf and paying no attention to the health of my hair.

I’m by NO means high-maintenance – and often toss my hair in a sweaty ponytail between gym and mom life – but I have also seen such a big difference in the look and feel of my hair since swapping to better quality products that also use safer ingredients, which, of course, is something I am a HUGE fan of.

I frequently get asked about my hair care routine (specifically how I get it so shiny!), so I thought I’d share my must-have hair products. (Related: I talked about my current skincare routine a previous blog post, if you’re interested.) And, of course, I’d LOVE to hear about some of your favorite beauty products since I’m always on the look-out for new things to try, so please leave a comment below!

Andalou Naturals Lavender & Biotin Full Volume Shampoo – This is a great everyday shampoo that really keeps frizz down and doesn’t leave any sort of funky build up. I use this every-other-day to wash my hair, and it’s perfect for sweaty CrossFit workouts or summertime outdoor fun.

Puracy Natural Daily Sulfate-Free Hair Conditioner – One of my girlfriends told me about this conditioner. It smells great, leaves my hair shiny and soft.

Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist (aka “magic hairspray”) – This stuff is the best ever, especially when you’re having a bad hair day and want to freshen it up. This spray instantly adds shine, smooths frizz, and smells so great. My go-to hairstyle lately is toweling-drying my hair, spritzing it with the Sea Salt Spray, letting it dry a little more, and then finishing it with a spray of magic hairspray. This gives me soft, smooth waves with very minimal effort!

Beautycounter’s Sea Salt Spray also works really well if I decide to blow-dry my hair. It smells great and gives my hair a serious and long-lasting lift!

Big Sexy Hair Powder Play (aka “hair boogers”) – Love this stuff! It’s the most amazing volumizer ever. You just sprinkle a little onto your dry hair and then use your fingers to work it in. I basically use it like dry shampoo, but, in addition to sopping up oil, it also adds volume to my roots. It’s great for everyday hair that just needs to be washed and/or styled. It’s seriously THE BEST.
