Products I would repurchase!

Last week I did a post on beatuy products I would not repurchase.

This week I wanted to share with you some of the products I would, and often have, repurchased! A lot of these products I have mentioned in the past, and will try and link the posts in which I've talked about them previously.

Hope it's helpful!


The Wet Brush
$9.99
You guys, I have broken at least 10 brushes in my life. I'm telling you, curly hair can be the absolute worst. Everyone says that brushing your hair when it's wet is damaging, but if I'm being honest, it would take me freaking forever to comb through my hair with a tiny comb everyday. Ain't nobody got time fo that! I got "The Wet Brush" from my mother-in-law for Christmas and Oh. My. Gosh. It's awesome. If you have curly hair or hair that tangles easily, this is your just-out-of-the-shower solution!

Tresemme Climate Protection Mousse
$3.44
I can't even tell you how many different types of mousse I've tried in my lifetime. I usually stay away from expensive salon products because there are SO MANY types of curly hair products I dislike. One that I've used for years is Tresemme Climate Mousse, which I mix with a little bit of conditioner. I have one complaint about this mousse: it dries slightly "wet" looking. That's why I'm always on the hunt for something new. Regardless, this is probably my 10th bottle of this stuff, and I'm sure I'll end up buying it again! 


Conair Pro Difuser
$7.99 (at Sally's Beauty!)
This looks obnoxious like a gun. But it works. It fits to pretty much any blow dryer and allows the curls to "sit" in it while it dries. Take your blow dryer vertically, then scoop hair in from the tip all the way up to your root and let it sit there for a minute. This creates a "chunkier" curl, that isn't as stringy and limp. Here is what my hair looked like today after using it:

It's never perfect...like EVER, but it's better than it could have been using other products and tools. Or no tools.

Kenra Volume Spray 25
$24.00 (gigantic bottle)
Best hairspray in the world. If you're willing to fork up the money for it, you won't ever go back to anything else. 'Nuff said.

Dove Dry Shampoo
$4.00
I have to rotate different dry shampoos because the scents end up reminding me of dirty hair haha. But THIS is the one I always go back to. Mostly because it smells absolutely wonderful.

Moroccan Oil
$42.00
This is really expensive, and I always get spoiled by my mother-in-law who gifts it to me for special holidays! :-) But seriously, there is nothing else like it. I've tried all kinds of oils from Garnier to Amika to Chi to Davines, but Moroccan Oil is the best. I use it while my hair is damp, except when I wear my hair naturally curly (makes it too stringy).

realTechniques Brushes
$6 - $8
These are inexpensive, and absolutely awesome. I would suggest them to anyone!

Mac Eyeshadow in Omega
$16.00
As you can see, I use this a lot. Daily, actually. I fill in my brows with it using a small stiff brush. It's excellent for blondes, who have no hint of red in their hair. Just a nice, ashy blonde shade! 


J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion in Grapefruit
$9.99
My sister got me this for my birthday and I L-O-V-E it. It's a really fresh scent, kind of like lemon, and keeps my skin moisturized all day long. I'm already getting kind of low on it, and have been looking for a place to repurchase.

Ban Shower Fresh Deodorant
$2.50
Used it since high school. Great scent that lasts all day.
