spring hair essentials

When it comes to hair, I am extremely low maintenance. I schedule cuts + highlights way less than I should and when I do, I never change a thing: same length (just past the base of my shoulder blades), same color (a cool dark blonde, close to my natural hair color). I don't ever blow dry it and I rarely take the time to curl or straighten it. In fact, I'm pretty untalented when it comes to hair. Knowing this, you won't be surprised to find that I own very few hair products. But the few that I do own, I couldn't do without. 

I swear by Kerastase's Elixer Ultime. I've tried other products but my hair always ends up looking dirty... Not cute. This product is lightweight, smells amazing and works wonders for my dry ends. I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive! 

Like most busy girls, I always keep dry shampoo on hand. I don't have a particular brand that I favor and I'm always down to try new products. Stila's Hair Refresher looks yummy and is supposedly wonderful, so I think I'll pick it up once I'm finished with my Lulu Organics hair powder. Dry shampoo saves me. 

I'm fairly certain that I've written about my Mason Pearson brush before (I have the XL Boar Bristle), but it's only because I can't live without it. I'm not a huge hair-brusher, but I do it when I must (post wake-up, post shower). The Mason Pearson effortlessly detangles and teases like nothing else. If I temporarily misplace my brush (which I'm prone to doing...), my hair is a complete nightmare. Yes, it's very expensive but think of it as an investment. I've had mine for almost nine years and plan to have it for many, many more. 

Not everyone is a hair accessories person, but I've always love them. When I was younger, I used to spend my entire allowance on France Luxe headbands at Nordstrom's. Truth be told, not much has changed - France Luxe/L. Erickson is still my favorite line of hair goodies. I picked out a few of my favorite pieces from their website that I think are adorable: L. Erickson Daisy Pearl BarretteL. Erickson Pearl Bobby PinsL. Erickson Wide Couture Bow, L. Erickson Dog Clips
L. Erickson Oblong Barrette (I wear this one all the time!).

Wishing you and yours a great hair day :)
