How I wish I could wake up with salon-gorgeous hair every morning, with va-va-voom curls and lots of volume! But for mere mortals like me, having perfectly-coiffed locks isn’t exactly an everyday thing.

Even so, I figure it won’t hurt to start investing in the well-being of our hair, right? After all, strong, healthy tresses will soon translate into that salon-gorgeousness I’m always after. And although they won’t look as glamorous as Kim K.’s mane, at the very least you’ll have the bounce and shine of an all-natural girl. Here’s all the hair stuff I’m using right now to make it happen!
1. Be Organic’s Virgin Coconut Sulfate-Free Shampoo, P170

I’ve been trying to avoid sulfate in shampoos as much as possible. Not only does it cause excessive buildup on the scalp, it can also be harmful for your hair and skin in the long run! This VCO shampoo is as natural as it gets!

2. Aveeno’s Nourish + Moisturize Conditioner, P400

Just like our skin, our hair can easily get dehydrated. That’s why it’s so important to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize, especially during the hot summer months! This conditioner is packed with good stuff like wheat complex and oil proteins, which strengthen and silken, keeping your mane light and healthy.

3. Frederic Fekkai’s Glossing Sheer Mist, P1,650

After blowdrying or ironing your hair, it’s a wonderful idea to load up on a few spritzes of this sheer mist. Spray it all over your hair just to give a nice shiny coat (like that glossy topcoat over a good manicure). Since this formula is very lightweight and gentle, it doesn’t weigh your hair down with grease or make it look limp in the least.

4. Made By David Organics’ Orange and Vanilla Dry Shampoo, on sale at P199

I’m such a huge advocate of dry shampoo! It seems intimidating for most people, but I really swear by it. It’s the perfect product to keep for mid-day touch-ups when you just want to get rid of all the oiliness, grime, and dirt on your scalp. And it’s perfect for travel, too; I usually pack a small tube for long-haul flights. This one by Made by David Organics which I just discovered keeps my hair and scalp clean even after a 16-hour flight. It smells amazing, to boot!
