Haircare Favorites – Styling Routine

Sharing an easy routine

I’ve been narrowing down my haircare products to find a routine that works for my fine, wavy hair. This one is pretty simple and only requires three products after the shower. Then I have my two favorite dry styling products from Living Proof when my hair needs a refresh or some hold.

After shampoo and conditioner (I’m currently using this line which smells amazing but doesn’t weigh my hair down), I wrap my hair in a cotton t-shirt for ten minutes. It’s pretty long, so this helps cut down on the time it takes to air dry my hair.

Then, while it’s damp, I spray this Bumble and Bumble Curl Primer all over. I love how it adds hydration without being heavy; my hair is pretty dry, so I even use it at my roots and it doesn’t make them greasy at all. It also smells great! I sadly just finished my bottle after taking this shot, so I’m using the Ouai Leave in Conditioner. It works well, but the scent is really strong.

Then I spray the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray from my ears down. It helps give a little more definition to my waves. It also has aloe vera so it’s not too drying (but I always need a leave in beforehand). Another favorite is the Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray which smells divine and works beautifully.

Lastly, I add a tiny amount of this Curl Keeper Gel for a little hold. You have to be careful not to use too much or it can get crunchy. This keeps my waves intact and helps cut down on frizz.

Since I only wash my hair three times a week, I need dry shampoo in the meantime. This Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo is the best I’ve tried. It’s so effective at removing oil and shakes out easily. The scent isn’t too strong but it smells great in my opinion. I’ve also liked the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo and Hask Chia Seed Dry Shampoo. The latter is so affordable, but it does leave a little build-up.

Lastly, if I’m going to curl my hair with a wand, I use the Not Your Mother’s Beat the Heat Shield Spray first (totally forgot to shoot…). After I’m done, I’ll spray this Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray from my ears down. It’s never crunchy, which I love, and I can easily run my hands through my hair afterward. Living Proof products have really impressed me – I don’t think there’s a single one that didn’t work for me!

Those are my styling staples and quick routine – it literally takes two minutes to apply the three products and then I finish air drying. What are your favorite haircare brands?? Anything I should try for dry, wavy hair?
