I'm going to my new favorite little hair salon in Brooklyn (Deluxe) this weekend for a trim. It's kind of amazing how fast your hair appears to grow once you cut most of it off. I last had a trim at the very end of July, and I've been hankering for a little update since early October.

I don't want to go too much shorter, but I love the idea of a more angular, slightly bouncier chop. That said, I think I'm finally mastering this lob of mine, and have narrowed down my essential hair products that I think you might benefit from, too. For example, myself (and my roommates) cannot live without Dove Refresh + Care dry shampoo. Trust me, I've tried them all and this one is the best. I use it even when my hair is clean, after combining Kerastase's Spray-a-Porter and Forme Fatale before blow-drying. (It's a magic, triple-threat combo for volume and texture.)

Additionally, I can smooth things out or add kinky, playful waves with GHD's 1 inch professional straightener. It's a little pricey, but this one works brilliantly, heats up quickly, and when you consider that it's something you use almost daily (and makes such a difference) the cost-per-use goes way down.

Short-haired ladies: What are your favorite hair products?

  1. This is how my hair is cut right now and I love it! It's way easier than long locks, and I too am finally getting used to it (3 months later).
    For wavy days I use Not Your Mothers Kinky Moves, and straight days: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment. I need a dry shampoo though, I'll check the Dove one out. :)
