Essential Hair Products (for Long, Fine & Blonde Hair)

Considering how obsessed I am with hair, it may come as a shock that I like to keep my hair routine short and only use minimal products.

I’m relatively low-maintenance when it comes to styling my hair – let’s face it, it typically only styles straight – so I don’t experiment too much in the hair product department. These products have been my go-to for many years (some as far back as high school!), and I don’t anticipate changing it up anytime soon.

Matrix Biolage Color Care Protection Shampoo and Conditioner – I have exclusively been using this shampoo/conditioner brand and set since I first started highlighting my hair in high school. It leaves my hair clean, soft and smooth, which is detrimental for women with long, straight hair like mine. I typically buy the big bottles from Ulta when they are on sale.

Suave Dry Shampoo – Of all the dry shampoos out there, this is by far my favorite – and, it’s the cheapest! I use dry shampoo every day, even if I’ve washed my hair, to give my hair some extra volume and texture. This does leave a white residue, but it easily blends in when you brush through your hair.

Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray – I don’t heat style my hair on a daily basis, especially in the summer, but I always use this before blow drying or using a curling iron or straightener for some added protection. Plus, it smells great.

Suave Volumizing Mousse – If you saw last month’s beauty favorites, you know I have been a big fan of this stuff as of late. It doesn’t leave my hair oily or greasy, and it holds in the volume in my hair all day long.

Tresemme Salon Finish Hairspray – I rarely use hairspray, but I always have a can of this on hand for times when I do. I usually use the firm hold or extra firm hold formula.
