2017 Hair Favorites


2017 was a year of great hair for me! I experimented with a bunch of new products to hydrate my curls and to reduce frizz when I had a blowout. Along with my previous post about my 2017 Beauty Favorites, this post is dedicated to my holy grail hair favorites from the past year!

Hair Favorites

Drybar Buttercup Blow Dryer: My favorite hair purchase of 2017 would be this blow dryer! I’ve never been able to achieve a salon blowout at home before trying this dryer. Now I can get my hair smooth and straight in little time and it lasts for a whole week! I love that there are different heat and speed settings, along with a cool shot button.

Drybar Hold Me Hair Clips: These hair clips are great for women with thick hair! I use these clips anytime I want to straighten my hair by creating easy to manage sections for blow drying.

Drybar Tress Press Styling Flat Iron: This flat iron is another holy grail hair product. I love the titanium plates on the flat iron because it smoothes out my frizzy and thick hair! The flat iron reaches up to 450 degrees and has a memory setting to always turn your iron on to the perfect temperature.

Hair Favorites

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler: This is a great detangler product that smells so yummy! I tend to use this detangler right after I shower and before I blowout my hair.

Drybar Sparkling Soda Shine Mist: I love to use this mist as a finishing spray after I straighten or curl my hair. It gives the perfect amount of shine to you hair and smells great too!

Hair Favorites

Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner: This leave-in conditioner helps to hydrate my curly and thick hair. I love applying it all over my hair once I get out of the shower. It goes on really smooth and helps to detangle my hair.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel: Once I’ve applied the leave-in conditioner, I follow it up with this gel. It is so lightweight but adds a bit of hold to my curly hair. This product really enhances my curls and gives them a bit of shine as well!

Unite Hair U Oil: This oil completely saved my color damaged hair earlier in the year. I love using this when my hair is curly or straight. The argan oil moistures my curls and keeps my hair healthy. I find that my hair grows faster when I use this oil as well.

Hair Favorites

Wet Brush: This brush is so great at detangling hair without causing a bunch of pain to the scalp. I love this brush because you can use it on wet or dry hair. It is super affordable and I picked mine up at Target. I loved it so much that I bought one for each of my family members!

Living proof No Frizz Shampoo: My favorite shampoo of 2017 would be this one! It really does reduce my frizz and gently cleans my hair. It also smells really nice and doesn’t strip my hair color.

Living proof No Frizz Conditioner: I absolutely love this conditioner because it leaves my hair feeling so smooth and soft. It detangles and hydrates my dry hair and the conditioner is moisturizing but not overly thick.

Unite Hair Lazer Straight: This is an awesome straightening fluid, especially for us thick haired ladies. I apply this to my damp hair and it reduces my blowout time while smoothing out my curls.
