Hair Heroes

I have been color treating my hair since I was 16, so at 28 it has definitely had it’s fair share of processing and I have always tried to keep it as healthy as possible through whatever color it has been. A little less than a year ago I died it a dark brown and I couldn’t stand it, drove me crazy so within two days I brought it back to my natural pale blonde so needless to say my hair hated me. It was left almost straw like, dry, brittle and had no shine left. The split ends were crazy and it would almost break just from touching it. So I needed an arsenal of products that would on top of the hair cut that I got to get rid of most of the dead ends help treat it and bring it back to a healthy way of life. With a combination of these products and a few really crappy ones that I have been through my hair is finally at a state that it is shiny and bouncy and full of life again. I know many girls have issues with dry hair, over processed hair or just look for a change and don’t want to spend crazy salon prices so I wanted to share with everyone my “Hair Heroes” that can all be purchased in Walmart, Target or a local drugstore.

Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo – This is my favorite shampoo and I am in love with the smell, if you’re interested in a full review you can check it out here.

Macadamia Oil Healing Oil Treatment – I absolutely do not know what I did without this product. Amazing probably doesn’t even cover it completely. You can check out my full review of this product here.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle – I think everyone knows by now that I am obsessed with this product. If I had to vote everything else off the island to keep this, I totally would. Highly recommend it.

Organix Macadamia Oil Moisture Mask – One of the best hair masks on the drugstore market. Great results and a lot of bang for your buck. Check out my full review here to find out more.

Sexy Hair Organics Leave-In Conditioner – This smells amazing and is perfect for a great leave-in. I found this product at Big Lots for $5 and stocked up because I think it’s discontinued as I no longer can find it in stores or on the Sexy Hair website but I have seen it in 3 different Big Lots so I suggest getting some for a great price if you have a Big Lots by you.

Organix Awapuhi Ginger Conditioner – The counterpart of the shampoo and is just as great. I am absolutely in love with the smell and would suggest this to any one looking for salon quality results for cheap.

What are your hair heroes? What can’t you live without?


  • I’ve just recently discovered the wonder that is Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi wild ginger line, but unfortunately my wallet doesn’t love me for it. I’m so happy to know that Organix make a similar product, I will have to try it out, and at least save a few bucks! I’d have to say my hair hero at the moment is the Optimum Miracle Oil hair moisturizer, as it leaves me with defined ringlets and no frizz (definitely a miracle!). My long time favorite has always been John Frida’s Spiral Curls hair spray. I think I really have to try this Macadamia stuff, everyone seems to love it! (btw, fellow Jersey girl here!) xx

  • hey! i found you through the BBU Blog Hop! i love the organix line, i’ve definitely been a fan of all my purchases from them in the past. recently i’ve been using a random leave-in conditioner with shea butter in it and it’s turned out to be really hydrating and great for my curls. thanks for the recommendations!

  • Hi! I just found your site through BBU Blog Hop and like it so much I decided to follow. My latest hair must haves are the Total Care shamp and conditioner by Clear Hair and Scalp Therapy. My hair has literally never been softer or smoother!!

  • I loveeeee the Organix Macadamia nut oil shampoo and conditioner- I also use 3 minute miracle a few times a week! It’s a 10 leave in conditioner is pricy but worth it, I have really damaged hair from over coloring so I’m always on the look out for hair repairers !
