In fact, I always peek in people's showers when I visit their house to see what type of shampoo/conditioner they use. Is that wrong? Kevin thinks it's crazy.
So, in case there is anybody out there like me, here's what I use on the daily.
Deodorant: Tom's All Natural in Apricot.
Natural. Works. I love it.
Facewash: This changes, but lately I've been using Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Acne Scrub. A little drying and definitely not all natural. But I like it fine for now. I also use Neutrogena Oil-Free face moisturizer. Nice and light, I like that.
Whatever blush. I have Cover Girl, I have MAC, I have some Sephora stuff. Just whatever.
I know it's sounding like I spend tons of money on makeup, but I'm a firm believer in buying small amounts of higher quality things is way better than tons and tons of cheap crap.
Maybelline Full & Soft for mascara. This is ole' faithful. I've used this for forever and it's just GREAT. Non-clumpy, never clumps. I don't like clumps.
To style my hair, I use a Boar Bristle teasing comb like this. You haven't teased your hair until you've had a comb like this. I LOVE this. I use it on every single client that will let me (and only 2 won't. They like flatter hair. I know, right?!) You can find them online anywhere.
Once I've teased my hair I spray hairspray at the "ratted" parts. Then use the same teasing comb to comb it all down into the way I want it, then do a light spray with the hairspray all over to hold that style into place. (not too much, you don't want helmet head!)
I like this hairspray, TIGI Maxxed Out because it's strong, but really the main reason I bought it is because it's the only non-aerosol hairspray our beauty supplier carries. Give me a break! Hopefully other brands will catch on that it's not cool to only have aerosol and make pump style bottles soon.
I'd do Walmart hairspray for all I care. I just have to have name brands for my client's sake.
But it's all just a bunch of alcohol so use whatever hairspray you like, in my opinion.
Now shampoo and conditioner is a WHOLE other story! It's not all the same! I always say if you're going to spend your money on something, make it be the shamp/conditioner and a good professional coloring. All the other gobs of products and treatments aren't that necessary.
For cheaper budgets, I love Matrix Sleek Look. Very conditioning, gives your hair that shine, but doesn't weigh it down. And even if it does weigh it down a bit, it's no match for your boar bristle comb!!
And if you're reeeally serious about great hair care and/or you are just plain rich, go for Pureology Nanoworks. Nanoworks, not just any Pureology. The Nanoworks line. This stuff. is. amazing. Nothing like it. Hence the price.
Ok, I could go on and on but this is taking longer than I had hoped to spend on the computer. Let me know if you have any questions (I always do).
Also let me know if you peek in people's showers, please.
