Love Your Hair

The right hair product can make or break a fantastic haircut.

As a hairstylist, saying that I’m a “product junkie” is quite the understatement. I love trying out new products and mixing and matching until I find the perfect concoctions. There’s such a huge variety in hair textures and needs and, thankfully, there are thousands of products that serve as styling aids to help encourage a great hair day. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of pairing the right product with the right texture in my experience of working behind the chair. I know the feeling of a “good hair day” and really hope my clients experience those more often than not!

ULTA Beauty is celebrating “Love Your Hair” for 21 days, May 12-June 1. It includes hair events, demos, and prizes that are sure to help you love your hair. Everyday there will be a Beauty Stealβ„’ on hair products and tools–a great time to stock up on your favorites or try out something new!
 
 
These were some of my favorite products that will be offered during the Love Your Hair event. Abba Shampoo and Conditioner was new to me, but I was pretty impressed. It was light and fresh. I also really loved the silkiness that Orofluido Beauty Elixir left on my ends. I was able to get great volume, which is my measure of hair product success, after using a few of these!

 

 
There are so many products to choose from, it’s hard not to find something you’ll love. 

ULTA Beauty is promoting a “hair pledge” for women to love the hair they have for a chance to win free blowouts for a year. I’m a big advocate for loving your hair, so I love that ULTA is encouraging women to look at their hair in a positive light. All you have to do is tweet your hair pledge with the hashtag #ULTAhairpledge and you’ll be entered to win. This starts on May 12th.
 
On top of this Love Your Hair event, ULTA Beauty and BlogHer have provided a $100.00 ULTA Beauty gift card for me to giveaway to a lucky reader! Enter to win by answering the question in bold (leave your e-mail address in the comment too!)below.
 
Are you an experimenter, or a “I’ll stick with what I know works” kind of product user? I have my all-time favorites, that I always have in back stock under my bathroom sink, but I love incorporating something new that looks appealing.

    I definitely have my old stand bys but I think you need to keep trying new hair products! You may surprise yourself! My friend and I have similar hair so we like to each try a new product, then switch. That way, we get to try two new products! Thank you so much πŸ™‚

    Experimenter here! Always looking for the right products to tame frizz and pump up the volume!

    Posted May 15, 2013

    Although I’m a “I’ll stick with what I know works” person, I find that I need to switch it up once in awhile. I get bored after a few months.

  5. Posted May 15, 2013

    I tend to stick with my usual hair products, but I’m definitely not afraid to experiment with new products every once in a while. It’s fun to try new things!

  6. Posted May 15, 2013

    I just switched all of my hair products AFTER watching Kate’s video’s on YouTube! I landed on her page via a link and it was just before my hair appointment. So I showed my hair stylist what Kate’s hair looked like, the layers, the soft curls, which was exactly what I was looking for! She was excited to do Kate’s ideas on my hair! I bought a lot of the products Kate suggested through my Salon, some I had to just fudge because they didn’t carry certain ones. But low and behold I can do my hair exactly like hers! I took photos on Mother’s Day and got a lot of comments about the hairstyle, which is new for me as I usually can not end up styling it like the salon. But with Kate’s videos I was able to do the soft curls and make them stay all day! Thanks to Kate and to Ulta (more product!) I have great hair again!

  7. Posted May 15, 2013

    I usually stick with the standbys but recently got some Alterna shampoo and conditioner samples after making a purchase at sephora and they make my hair fabulous!! My old standby has changed to Alterna now.

  8. Posted May 15, 2013

    I love my old stand bys but also love trying new products. Samples are helpful with that so I don’t risk a lot of money on something that won’t work on me.

  13. Posted May 15, 2013

    I am SUCH an experimenter. I recently went through my bathroom to declutter and there was a LOT of hair product that had failed. I like to try new stuff and have thin hair that just doesn’t do a whole lot on it’s own.

    I have products I gravitate back to for sure, but I LOVE any chance to try something new and at any given time have more hair products under my sink than is normal. πŸ™‚

    I am kind of an experimenter, but when I do find something I love, I will stick with it for a while. I wish I lived closer to you because i could use a serious hair consultation and the right hair concoction! Thanks for all the giveaway opportunities, but this one would for sure be helpful!

    Posted May 15, 2013

    I’m an experimenter as well. My favorite is the Biosilk line so I always have that in my shower. I love that there are a ton of the different products that I can try on my hair. I have been really wanting to try the Living Proof Restore Line! I don’t cut or color my hair so Im constantly buying products for my hair. (I know, most people cringe when I say that) BUT I will buy expensive products that actually work in order to take care of my hair. I consider it an investment rather than a splurge purchase πŸ™‚

  31. Lauren says

  32. Posted May 15, 2013

    I generally like to experiment because I can never find products I absolutely love love love to buy again. Except recently I’ve been using the Living Proof Full line and I definitely think I will be repurchasing! And I always use Moroccan oil on my ends.

    I experiment. πŸ™‚ I mix it up because I have NEVER found anything that I loved. I need volume, but moisture as well. I am always on the look out for volume.

  34. Posted May 15, 2013

    I think I am an experimenter but there are a few things I can’t do without. Redken blow out lotion is a must have. Makes my hair so smooth and smells awesome too. My fav hairspray is Scruples White Tea. Amazing spray.

  35. Linda says
    Posted May 15, 2013

    I’m not very brave when it comes to my hair. Long, thick and wavy, I used to try to force it to be straight and I used to lose that battle on a daily basis. A trip to a new stylist and some layers along with a product or two and I love my soft waves.

  36. Posted May 15, 2013

    Oh I’m an experimenter for sure. My hair is fine, thin and limp. It looks good for about five minutes. I’m always on the hunt for products that build body, volume and hold!

  37. Posted May 15, 2013

    I love experimenting with products…at times I feel like I have way too much products. My one question for you, Kate, would be, how long should I try a project to see if it works for me?

  38. Misty says

    I generally just stick to what I know but I do believe I am due for a change up since I am growing my hair out.

    I love to experiment but find myself sticking with the same products for long periods of time until something else comes along. I wish I would remember to try all the products I’ve accumulated on a more regular basis!

    Thanks for the giveaway… my email is in my Google public profile!

  44. Posted May 15, 2013

    I usually stick with what I know, but you’ve helped me be brave and I’ve found some great products based on your recommendations!

    I am also a product junkie! I have my favorite ‘go-to’ products, but I like to experiment with others, too! My ‘hair drawer’ is full of products! I just switched my root lifter to Aquage and am loving it!!!

    An ULTA gift card would be fantastic, because I always buy all of my hair products there. I have really fine and thin hair after going through a lot of chemo as a kid, but I’ve definitely found my product “concoction” that works for me to plump up my hair. I always use TIGI Your Highness thickening gel creme all over my hair, then spritz some of the TIGI Your Highness root boost spray on the crown of my hair before drying it upside down. After flat ironing my hair, I’ll flip some hair at the crown of my head over to dust on some Osis Dust-It powder before backcombing with a Spornette Little Wonder brush. I finish it all off with a light spray of TIGI Bedhead Masterpiece hairspray. Lately, I have been experimenting with different shampoo and conditioner combinations, and I’m loving the product lines with Moroccan Argan Oil in them. They make my hair shiny, smooth and don’t weigh down my hair at all.

    I don’t have anything that I buy frequently. I would love to experiment, but I usually just buy whatever is cheapest!

  52. Posted May 15, 2013

    I am willing to experiment but I do prefer to have a recommendation from someone so I won’t waste my money. As far as shampoos though, I’m definitely willing to try new things. Thanks!

  54. Posted May 15, 2013

    I tend to experiment. I feel like after so long a product doesn’t work as well for me so I switch it up and eventually end up going to back to old products.

  55. Posted May 15, 2013

    I am a “stick with what works” kind of girl.. mainly because products are so DARN expensive.

    I love to experiment with products – though I’m not near as adventurous or confident in hair as I am makeup and such.

  57. Posted May 15, 2013

    I used to never change what products I used, but in the past few years I’ve gone from one product to another trying to find something that works best for my hair. It’s fun to experiment, but I hate spending money on products and then them not working well for me! Such a bummer!

  58. Posted May 15, 2013

    I am a mixture… I have the things I love but I try new styling products frequently.

    I’m always looking for the next best thing so call me an experimenter! I try and buy something new before I’m finished with my last purchase!

  62. Posted May 15, 2013

    I like to switch it up a lot. I think it’s fun to see what’s out there and since I like to change my hair a lot, new products are fun!
    I will try just about any hair product and style that you recommend!

    I am an experimenter and product junkie- but I think it’s because I’m searching for the perfect product to make me want to stick with something. My husband complains that there are always 10 bottles of shampoo in the shower…that doesn’t include the huge basket of stuff Iv’e tried and didn’t like, or just had to move out of the shower so there was room for a human. πŸ™‚

    Also, thanks for letting us know about the sale… getting my debit card & car keys out now!

  66. Posted May 15, 2013

    I’m a combination. When I find something that I think works, I will use it and only it, only I know I may be missing out on something better. I love to try new products based on a solid recommendation (which is why your blog has been so good for me), but venturing out on my own is overwhelming. I am afraid of spending $20 on a product that ends up not working!

    [email protected]

  67. Posted May 15, 2013

    I’m both! I love finding a new products and seeing if they work for me but I’m cautious about using them and I tend to stick with the ones I like for a while.

  85. Posted May 15, 2013

    I am definitely an experimenter. I have fine, thin hair, and I’m always on the lookout for a product that will help with that. Most recently, I found Suave’s (don’t judge me!) root lifter. I wash my hair at night and spray that on my roots, and my hair has so much more volume in the morning.

  87. Posted May 15, 2013

    Thanks to you, Kate, I’ve become much more of an experimenter! (As long as the budget allows, hehe.) You’ve made me a Birchbox fan and an Ulta shopper so it’s been fun trying things steadily over time. You’ve also made me a faithful Aquage and Kenra 25 user, and I’m sure those things I’ll be sticking with for a long time! πŸ™‚

    Posted May 15, 2013

    I love to experiment but sadly it seems as though it never works out! I’m not too wild when it comes to trying new hair products just because I’ve had bad experiences so I normally end up keeping the same products I always use. Because my hair is thick, but sleek, it’s hard to find products to add volume without it being too product-y. Prices for good quality stuff always is a turn off too just because why spend $25 on a styling product that you don’t know will work? I’ve branched out more with hairstyles and looks thanks to Kate, but still weary!

    My hair usually reflects my stick-with-a-ponytail-holder-and-bobby-pins approach. πŸ™‚ Sometimes I use Garnier Fructis curl spray gel and scrunch my hair to get a pretty curled look. But it usually just goes up in a bun/messy bun or ponytail with my bangs braided or pinned back. I rarely use hairspray. I’m getting back into my windows-rolled-down-while-I’m-driving mode so my hair can get rather messy. πŸ™‚

  100. Posted May 15, 2013

    I love to experiment with new products. My hair is naturally curly, but I wear it straight and I am always on the lookout for a product to keep it from getting frizzy in the summer.

I always have the things that I know work and continue to buy those and will try new things as the budget allows but that’s usually not very common and I’m scared to just leave the regulars in order to try something new in case it doesn’t work and I’m stuck with it until I can by my regular again. I’m getting more into experimenting though and enjoying it!

  109. Posted May 15, 2013

    I am an experimenter of the worst kind! Even if I like what I’m using, I will try something new “just because.” I suppose there’s a part of me that wonders if there’s something out there even better.

  129. Posted May 15, 2013

    My experimentation comes in bursts. I think I hit ruts of complacency where I just straighten my hair everyday or put it in a ponytail — no creativity, no experimentation. I think I’m getting better at being consistently excited about my hair. I’ve learned some new styles and textures, too.

    It’s amazing — I’ve had my hair for almost 23 years and I’m just NOW figuring out its full potential. (A lot of it is thanks to you, too!)

    I definitely like to experiment. I have so many products in my medicine cabinet because I buy something new before I even use up the other product — it drives my husband nuts! I just recently bought Big Sexy Hair’s root pump and hair spray and I am really liking that so hopefully I have found those ‘staple’ items. Today I bought the Lanza shampoo, conditioner and oil and I am looking forward to trying it out in the morning.

    I like to experiment with products on occassion! Though I mostly just stick to shampoo & conditioner, a leave-in split end treatment every once in a while, and a good hairspray to cement down any flyaways when I do an updo. I’ve had very long, very straight hair most of my life; I’m so used to seeing it flat against my head, that I think it looks odd with any volume! Maybe someday I’ll break myself of that habit. πŸ˜‰ Right now, though, I’m on a strict budget, so I’ll be sticking to my low-end shampoo & conditioner. Good ole V05! Just not in the budget right now to experiment.

    I’m the type of person who mostly sticks with what I know. I love to try new products only if they come highly recommended by others or if I find a great deal on them.

    I am hesitant to try anything new, but I love when companies give away trial sizes- risk free sampling! Thanks for hosting!
