My Favorite Hair Products

It’s Monday! The kids went back to school. The rain is coming down, Ozzy is napping while I watch LIVE! with Ryan and Kelly and I have a few minutes to share my tried and true favorite hair products. Would you like me to make a couple of videos on haircare and how I curl my hair? I feel like it’s so basic and you can watch any YouTube and find great tutorials, but if you want to see mine, I will make it for you.

I’ve always had pretty good hair. That being said, a couple of years ago it started to break off like crazy due to a hormone imbalance (more on that another time). Like it was nuts. I started working with a hormone doctor and researched the best hair products including this TREATMENT and this SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER. Thankfully my hair returned to normal, but I still keep up on all the best in haircare because I want to maintain healthy hair. Since Ozzy girl, I’ve had to work even harder on my hair due to all the loss and breakage (baby hairs) that come with a new baby..

I wash my hair 1-2 times per week. That’s all. When I wash I use a variety of things: some of my favorites: MOISTURE SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER. Love how well this lathers. I also use this SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER and this PURPLE SHAMPOO  (do NOT leave this on longer than one minute and wash your hands immediately)every other time I wash to keep my blonde nice and bright. It’s stroooong so be aware. If the intensity scares you, use UNITE BLONDE SHAMPOO. I used this a few years ago, it’s good, but mild in comparison.

The last time I blow-dried my hair was maybe 2 months ago. I try to always air dry. When I do blow it dry I use either JOSH HARRY or T3 dryer. Love both! I’ll use this SPRAY all over and then my DETANGLING BRUSH to brush my hair into a deep side part and smooth. I then add one pump of this SERUM(lasts me a whole year) from my ears down to the ends. I don’t touch it until it’s completely dry!!! I’ve found if I touch it or flip my hair, put in a pony, etc it becomes frizzy and doesn’t air dry smooth.


I am a firm believer in finishing products! I alternate between this 3 in1 SPRAY and this DRY TEXTURIZING SPRAY. My #1 SHINE SPRAY.

I love it because it’s super light weight. Everyone seems to love a good dry shampoo. My favorite three are: 24K, BIG SEXY & IGK.

I love this SEA SALT SPRAY on days when I have freshly washed air dried hair and want some texture.

I’ve talked about this CURL WAND several times. I have both sizes, the 1.5 and the 1 inch. I use the 1.5 inch most. If my hair were shorter, I would use the 1 inch more. I also have this CURL TRIO and love it too.

I don’t always use hairspray, but when I do, I use this GOLDWELL. Great hold, but isn’t too strong. I love it! They recently changed the packaging and I panicked thinking it was discontinued.

If I sleep with my hair up, I prefer a SCRUNCHIE. Why? It’s soft fabric that not does pull my hair at night causing breakage. Try it!

    Love this! My hair is still shedding in handfuls 2 1/2 years after my twins were born! Thankfully, I have a lot otherwise I’d be bald! I recently read that Viviscal (a vitamin supplement) was the best kept secret of all of the top models in the 90’s. I tried it & already see a difference. It’s only been a little over a week. There is far less hair on the floor. It feels stronger & softer too. ??

    I want to hear more about the hormone imbalance… I’m going through the same thing! I’ve been tested for everything and I’ve tried so many shampoos and vitamins but not much has helped! ?

    • Reply Lisa Allen January 8, 2018 at 5:56 PM

      I’ll talk about it sometime. It’s lengthy and kind of boring but i do think people would benefit from it.

    I use Oribes texturizing spray on all my clients. It’s my fav! ?

  • Reply Jennifer January 8, 2018 at 11:01 PM

    I’ve been having the same issue… my baby is 22 months and my hair is a mess… breakage galore and it just feels weird. I’ve been taking vitamins like crazy for months but I see no difference. Your hair looks amazing though!

    Did you take any supplements? My little guy is two years old now and I still have baby hairs growing in and have tried everything !!!!

    Hey! I would love to hear about your hormone imbalance, as well. I’ve never been the same since having my twins 4 years ago. I’ve been tested for everything and only recently was put on hormone replacement but, it’s been a LONG road that’s had horrible effects on my skin, hair, weight, etc.

    Hey Lisa! Can you tell us what you get done when you go to the salon?! Do you get highlights? A full color? And does your Stylist tone it at all?

    Chat soon!

    I would love to wash my hair less. However, I work out 5x a week. My hair is drenched after my workout. How do you manage to wash a few times a week while incorporating vigorous excercise? Thanks!

    Hi Lisa, Your blog is amazing. I recently purchased the purple shampoo you recommended. Was wondering how often you use it??
