I don't talk much about hair care on my little corner of the internet, and that's because I'm pretty clueless when it comes to my hair. It's wavy, poofy, and constantly frizzy, and I don't really have time to figure out how to beat it into submission. Now that winter is coming (did you say that in a Ned Stark voice?), it's just been feeling so brittle and dry, causing more frizz. Lately though, I've come across a routine that really cuts down on the frizz and dryness, and it's been giving me silky smooth hair that's super easy to style.
I've never been super loyal to one shampoo/conditioner brand, but the bits I've been trying from Aussie have really changed my mind there. I like to alternate the shampoos and conditioners I use - I feel like it keeps my hair "on its toes" if you will, and my hair seems to be able to go longer between washes without getting greasy. The Aussie Total Miracle 7N1 Shampoo & Conditioner are great for when my hair's starting to feel a little frazzled and damaged. Just one use and everything feels back to normal. I alternate it with the Aussie Moist Shampoo & Conditioner. This one is going to be perfect once there's even more of a chill in the air - it leaves my hair feeling SO soft, smooth, and hydrated. Sometimes my scalp gets itchy from dryness, and this shampoo/conditioner duo even helps that.
Once a week, to keep my hair hydrated, I like to use a deep conditioning hair mask. The Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment is perfect for this. I love that it only takes three minutes so I can get out of the shower and into cozy pajamas as quickly as possible. My hair feels so healthy after using this, and I can really tell it's reducing damage. It claims to make the hair 10x stronger against damage than non-conditioning shampoo, and I really think it's been living up to those claims. I immediately notice a difference as my hair is drying - it feels so much smoother!
I typically let my hair air-dry, and a product that I really think has allowed me to do that without needing much of any styling afterward is the Aussie Instant Freeze Sculpting Hair Gel. When I think of gel, I think of the super crunchy ringlet curls I had to do when I was a Party Girl in the Nutcracker when I was 10 years old, but this is a whole different ballgame. It doesn't leave my hair crunchy at all. It helps to define and bring out my waves in a really flattering way (before I started incorporating the gel into my routine, I had cowlicks and weird kinks in my hair galore and could never wear my hair down). And, my favorite thing, it keeps my freshly-washed hair from getting puffy as it dries. I apply such a small amount, maybe about two pea-sized dollops, when my hair is about 50% dry. If I do blowdry my hair, it really helps cut down on that puffiness as well. To finish my hair, I'll run a pump of a hair oil through the lengths to smooth down any flyaways, but I've noticed I don't always need this after using the Aussie products!
You can find Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment, Instant Freeze Sculpting Hair Gel, Aussie Moist Shampoo & Conditioner, Aussie Total Miracle 7N1 Shampoo & Conditioner, and many more products on Amazon. Having all your hair products shipped right to your door is a huge time-saver - no need to run out to the store when I unexpectedly run out anymore, because having backups is so easy!
