Top 7 Products to Grow and Soften your Hair
I’m going to start this article by saying that Blake Lively is my hair-God! I’ve spent years trying to achieve her locks. Seriously folks, years! My old hairdresser used to tell me that hair is the first thing anyone notices and he was so right! I’m mainly a relationship, wellness and self-care blogger, but I also love writing posts about other topics from time-to-time. One huge passion of mine is hair! Specifically, ways to grow my hair and make it silky-soft.
About 7 years ago, my hair was at its’ prime. It was long and luscious! Unfortunately, due to way too much heat, over-processing, over-dying and over-washing, I watched the quality of my hair dwindle. Honestly, my hair was a wreck!
I’ve spent years trying to figure out the magic solution to bring it back to life. I tried coconut oil masks and other natural remedies. I tried products recommended by bloggers. I tried EVERYTHING! Honestly, most products ended up a bust. They worked for a bit and then stopped helping my hair. Or, they didn’t deliver at all and my hair was in worse condition.
But somehow I figured it out! In the last 6 months, my hair has been the softest it’s ever been! I’ve also seen amazing growth. Finally, I’m starting to live up to Blake, my hair-idol, and my hair is making a MAJOR comeback! I owe it all to some products that I will never go without again!
The products listed below are not the cheapest on the market, but honestly, they work miracles. For me, it’s 100% worth the cost!! I can not emphasize enough how much it’s worth it. Also, since my hair is in such great condition, I wash my hair less and use less product.
Below is my list of the top 10 ultimate hair products to grow and soften your hair:
1. Olaplex Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner
All the hype about Olaplex is 100% accurate. This shampoo and conditioner is seriously a GAME CHANGER! You will not go back once you try these. Olaplex repairs hair in a way which no other product on the market currently does. I can not express enough how much both of these products have changed my hair. My hair was fried, damaged and course. Now it is soft, silky and the damage has been repaired. My hair is also growing at a seriously rapid rate and I know it is because these two products have fixed my split ends.
If you are going to buy any products on this list, make it Olaplex products. These products have been pivotal to changing my hair and bringing it back to life. They are worth every penny!
2. Olaplex Back Bar #2 Bond Perfector
This is a super amazing leave-in treatment to put on after you wash your hair. The chemistry behind this product claims to restore, repair, eliminate damage and hydrate your hair without adding excess weight. I can say with full certainty that this product does exactly as it claims! The results are incredible. The product recommends that you leave it in for 10 minutes in wet hair before your shower. I do this treatment once a week.
Something else I do, that I have found incredibly beneficial for my hair, is to use this product as a leave-in conditioner. I comb it through my wet hair after I’ve shampooed and conditioned and I don’t wash it out. Personally, I love this!
3. Davines Oi Absolute Beautifying Shampoo
I like to alternate between different brands when I’m shampooing my hair. I find my hair can get a bit used to one brand and not respond as well (if I am using it every single day). I always have two different shampoos that I use. When not using the Olaplex Bond Maintenance shampoo, I stick to the Oi Absolute Beautifying Shampoo. It leaves your hair so soft and silky! I barely need conditioner after using it. The hydrating, smoothing formula in this shampoo is amazing for coarse hair. Also, it smells so amazing!
4. Davines Oi Absolute Beautifying Conditioner
An amazing compliment to the Oi Shampoo is the Oi Absolute Beautifying Conditioner. This conditioner leaves your hair incredibly soft, smooth and silky. I have zero tangles to comb through after using this product. Just like the Oi Beautifying Shampoo, it smells amazing!
5. Davines Oi Oil
Shampoo and conditioner are just 2 parts of a hair-care routine. The other parts come after. My absolute favourite product that I use daily is the Oi Oil. I like to use a bit of it on my hair when it’s wet after I shampoo and condition. I like to use it on my hair when it’s dry and I’ve finished styling my hair. I like to use it before I go to bed to help my hair get extra soft. It’s really an amazing oil! When I was travelling with friends, they tried some and couldn’t stop raving for the whole trip about how soft it made their hair. Seriously, guys, this product does wonders!
6. Davines Oi All in One Milk
This is an incredible treatment to use as a leave-in conditioner on your hair after you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair. This product is unbelievably hydrating! I use it every single time after I wash my hair. After using this product, there are zero tangles.
7. R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion
The latest product I’ve added to my hair-care routine is this R+CO waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion. A lot of people rave about the R+Co line as it’s ethical, organic and vegan. The shampoos and conditioners I tried from this line didn’t do much for my hair, but I absolutely LOVE this shine lotion! I use it on my wet hair after I shampoo and condition. It leaves my hair so shiny and silky. Also, it smells amazing!
