Hair Care Faves

I’m a person that likes to switch up their beauty routine in search of the next best thing, obviously. This is especially true with my hair products. I have naturally curly, frizzy hair and my hair suffers a lot through the straightening processes. As much as I like to try new things I keep coming back to these six products.


  • John Masters Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment and Volumizer for thinning hair – This treatment has helped to regulate my oily scalp, improving the overall health of my hair. Prior to including this product into my hair care routine I hadn’t considered the importance of scalp health. Since using this treatment I have been able to skip a shampoo.
  • Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo – This is my all time favorite shampoo. It cleans my unconformably oily scalp exceptionally well. It also does it gently without drying out the rest of my hair. It soothing and tingles a bit and is a delight to use.
  • Coconut Oil – You might already know that I’m a bit crazy for coconut oil. I use it in a multitude of ways. As a hair mask, coconut oil is incredible. It is said to be the only oil that can penetrate your hair follicles. After use, my hair feels significantly softer and smoother with incredible shine. I also sometimes use it after I blow dry to add some shine.
  • Biolage Conditioning Balm – I havent been able to find a conditioner that moisturizer as well as this one. I’ve been using it for many years and I love it.
  • Moroccanoil – This incredibly popular oil just cannot be beat. It keeps my hair soft and manageable without ever weighing it down or feeling greasy. There is a reason why this is so loved, it’s a miracle. The oil is a bit pricey but I shelve out the money every time because its worth every penny.
  • Batiste Dry Shampoo – While I understood the concept of a dry shampoo, I never found it effective. I tried them all and gave up on them a long time ago. I also could not tolerate the smell of any of them. I gave dry shampoo one last chance when I picked up Batiste Coconut, and I am now a believer. The coconut scent is delightful and not overpowering.

Two other products that deserve a mention:

  • Phyto Huile d’Ales pre-shampoo Hydrating Oil (review)
  • Living Proof No Frizz Straight Making Styling cream – a summer staple (review)

Have you tried any of these? What are some of your hair care favorites?

  1. Hi Taylor!
    Thank you for sharing!
    I am very curious about the John Masters Treatment! I have oilier scalp, too, and my hair are quite fine, so it should work for me!
    I tried some shampoos fm JM range and the one I like better is the Honey and Hibiscus!

    1. Hi Clara! I love the treatment, my scalp it just crazy and it helps it so much. It can also be a little irritated and painful sometimes, so it’s kind of a miracle for me. I will have to try out the shampoo. I’ve also really wanted to try the conditioners, I love JM 🙂

  2. I want to try coconut oil! I use Caudalie Divine Oil as my pre-shampoo treatment and it works well, but I keep hearing about how effective coconut oil is and I’m really tempted!

  3. I love coconut oil so, so much. I use it as a deep conditioner for my hair every other week. It makes my hair so soft! I love it for my face and body too. There are so many uses for it.

  4. Hi Taylor, thank you for sharing your hair care regimen! I have frizzy hair too. For me, I have found that the Macadamian Oil and Label M straightening balm help when used together. I am curious about the coconut oil and I think I will give it a try as my hair gets very dry and damaged from using my hair straightener on the highest possible setting!
    Thank you again and have a wonderful weekend,

    1. Hi Melanie.
      That’s so funny, my hairdresser just used the macadamia oil on me for the first time! I couldn’t believe the smell, it was heavenly! I’m not familiar with Label M but will look it up. Thank you for sharing!
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend yourself!

  5. I’m super lazy when it comes to my hair, especially when I now have short hair. I use dry shampoo because the roots get oily super fast, and some leave in treatment, that’s about it. Then again, I have fine hair, so I have to be very careful. Products weigh down my hair, and with some hair loss problems, I try to be a minimalist.

  6. I’m dying to try the Moroccan oil… I’m actually using the TRESemme Liquid Gold Restorative Complex that is infused with Argan Oil which I mentioned in a post and it is actually brilliant! I also have frizzy hair and I find that the Tresemme one helps alot. I use it after washing my hair and leave it dry naturally. It leaves my hair so soft and frizz free! I have coconut oil also that I bought to make a lip balm…Do you heat up some and then just apply it onto your hair? Thanks for this post by the way 😀

    1. Hi Elizabeth. The Tresseme sounds lovely. I use their heat protected spray, I love it! Are you going to be doing a DIY lip balm on the blog? I’ve always wanted to do that 🙂 I take about a tablespoon of oil and let it melt in my palm then rub it into dry har starting at the ends 🙂 you are a welcome btw!!

      1. I was surprised with how good it is! Yes I’ll do that 😀 It’s actually not that bad to do and I got it from a diy and organic loving youtuber. Her username on youtube is Glamology. But I will start tomorrow and hope I’ll have it up tomorrow 😀 Ahh ok…does it melt fast and easy or do you have to wait a while?

  7. i don’t really do much with my hair, but i do really like the oscar blandi invisible dry shampoo. i like some of the lush hair stuff i’ve tried recently too. i’m super curious about living proof stuff (currently trying a sample of the style extender) and phyto too. i’ve tried very limited bits of both brands and i need to try more!

  8. Taylor this is such a timed share!! I am going crazy about my hair, as every aspect of my life, my hair is unbalanced too! Oily scalp with really dry ends is really hard, if I use oily hair products, then ends go crazy dry and if I use moisturizing products then I can’t use my hair even with daily washing! I used a bunch of oils for dry ends and nothing seems to work to moisturize but I now realized while reading your review that the only conditioner that works really well for my hair was Kiehl’s amino acid conditioner which contains coconut oil I believe. So I will try to lean over coconut oil products. We dont have John Masters Organics here, though I here really good mentions from the blogs, so I hope I can find a good scalp treatment as well.. Fingers crossed!

    1. Hi, I am so glad! And thank you so much for sharing. I feel the same why, unbalanced. My hair drives my nuts it like a tug of war. Coconut oil might help with your scalp as well, it has anticepstic properties. You might also want to try Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with some water to neutralize your scalp. I hope you find something that works, my fingers are crossed for you! 🙂

  9. Great picks! I also swear by coconut oil, MoroccanOil and agree that the biolage balm is awesome. I also swear by Organix shampoo and conditioner, and also John Frieda purple shampoo once a week to make my highlights brighter and lighter!

  10. hi! may i know which website i can get my hands on Moroccanoil? i live in singapore and i dont think any stores sell it…thank you!
