Hair Care Routine

IMG_3865.JPGI was hesitant to do this post because I don’t like to come across as braggadocious. Bragging about stuff just isn’t my style AT ALL, but as a blogger, I have to work on getting over that and being open regardless of how it comes across.
My hair is something I’ve always been complimented on, and it’s one of the few things about myself, appearance-wise, that I have zero insecurities about. When I get compliments on it, I often say “well it’s all I have going for me” because that’s my way of basically admitting that there’s a lot of things I don’t like about my appearance, but my hair isn’t one of them.
Since I was a teen, I’ve had people (even complete strangers) ask me if I have extensions and also what it is that I use that makes my hair so long and healthy. I’m sure there’s a good portion of this that is attributed to genetics, but I also think I’ve discovered some pretty great hair products over the years. So here we go…

Shampoo’s on Rotation

I LOVE this shampoo because my hair changed when I started using it – it just makes it feel smoother and it protects against damage caused by coloring your hair.

Now that I’m a mom, I’m lazy about going to specific salons to buy my hair products because I always feel like there’s way more important things to get done, so I like to have this giant bottle of affordable Pantene Pro-V on hand because I’ll likely use this for a solid month before finally buying a new Bumble and Bumble. Can’t beat the convenience of Costco

Now that I’m back to being blonde (I have hair color ADD) I’m back to using a purple shampoo once or twice a week. Here’s the one I use because I didn’t want a super expensive one, but I wanted sulfate-free
 

The Best Conditioner EVER

I don’t remember the exact year that I discovered this, but I’ve been using it for a decade at the very least. I’ve tried different conditioners here and there, but NOTHING ever compares. If anyone really wants THE SECRET to how my hair isn’t super damaged, this is it. Since I sometimes neglect to brush my hair and opt for a mom bun, I will usually brush my hair in the shower after this conditioner has set in for a few minutes – this helps me avoid breakage.
 

Hair Product (for people who hate hair products)

I HATE hair product – I always have to tell a new hair stylists not to put product in my hair because I hate the way it feels. It makes me feel like I need to go home and wash it again. Ladies, this one is the exception. It gives my hair just a tiny bit of extra something so that when I dry it, it responds better to styling (usually waves for me). This stuff is amazing and I’m totally addicted.
 

The Hair Spray that changed my life

For YEARS I tried various different hair sprays at various price ranges. For YEARS I either had something that made my hair feel sticky and crunchy (hello Big Sexy Hair) or something that just didn’t hold or help my do. Discovering this hair spray changed how my hair looks when I actually do it – and I immediately started getting more compliments on my hair.
 

The all-natural hair mask, found in the cooking aisle

One day I asked my hair lady (who is very seasoned I might add) to do some sort of a hair mask on me because my hair felt dry – I told her I was willing to pay.
Her response: “No way I’m taking your money for that. Just go to the grocery store and buy some extra virgin coconut oil and soak your hair in it; start doing that every couple of months and don’t ever waste your money on hair masks.”
This stuff is legit ya’ll (I’m not even Southern). Go try this if you haven’t already
 
As I mentioned in my Insta post, I also try and stretch my washes to every 3-4 days if I can- it def helps that I HATE washing my hair. Also, thick hair runs in my family so at the end of the day, some of this stuff is just genetic, but I still wanted to just share some of my fave products with you all.
Xo,
Beth

  • Highlight of my weekend was a date night with this guy 🥰. I got this leopard blazer from @zara back in November, and I’m loving how it carries into spring time by pairing it with some white jeans and open toed heels. It’s a good thing I don’t post photos of myself every time I go out, or you’d all be saying “Hey Beth, this blazer is over played. Go shopping.” 😂🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #leopardprintforlife #datenightoutfit #stylishmomsociety
  • Happy birthday to my sweet 3 year old Preston Henry. You have always and will always have your mama’s heart ❤️
  • Weekend highlight: celebrating sweet baby Erickson due so soon! 🥰 Can’t wait to love on him or her! Can you believe @laurenerickson1027 is waiting to find out the gender? Love her, but she be CRAY 😂

@edwardsfamily4 curated the most gorgeous baby shower, no surprise there 💖✨ #babyshower #babynumber3 #boyorgirl
  • Belated Valentine’s celebration with this guy 😍. Staycation perks: staying out late with zero accountability followed by sleeping in. Also, having uninterrupted conversations; that’s always nice too 🤪 #boglevineyards #sheratongrandsacramento #forevervalentine
  • There’s nothing I love more than watching these two love on each other 🥰❤️. What is everyone up to for Valentines Day? Personally I hate going out the day-of, so Ryan planned a little night away this weekend and he made dinner reservations and I DON’T KNOW WHERE. And I didn’t wife-cromanage this; he made these plans all on his own 😂🙌🏻 #valentinesday2019
  • In case anyone was wondering, I’m still obsessed with having a sun room, and @boglevineyards wines. #rainydaydontcare #californiamom #needtobeoutside #sacramentoblogger
  • I truly do cherish our Costco lunch dates, even though it was freezing cold today. My baby is almost 3 and it’s kind of making me sad. Time really does speed up the older you get, especially after you have kids 😢. #cherrishthemoment #prestonhenry #secondborn
  • This kid spent the entire summer last year asking to swim. Literally every single day, “Mom can we go swimming ?”🐟 Which is why I’m SO EXCITED that he got a spot on the super impacted, hardly any spots available U6 boys swim team! We only had to get there and wait in line at 6am in the rain 🤪 and by we, I mean super dad @ryancurtismitchell. Parenting win! #apdolphins
  • Today marks the first day ever where Preston’s hair cut didn’t involve physical restraint and screaming bloody murder. He was such a good boy and got the biggest smile on his face when he looked at himself in the mirror afterwards 💛💛. I knew you’d conquer that fear someday Presto 😍. Scroll for his “before” pic ➡️😂
