Let’s be honest in here: there’s really no way to prevent the damage that comes with heat styling your hair. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right products to make it look as healthy as possible. Today I want to talk you about my favorite heat protector and shine serum: the ever straight brazilian keratin therapy flat iron spray and thenourishing coconut oil anti-breakage serum, they’re both from the brand Organix and contain a bunch of natural ingredients that are loaded with proteins and minerals.

I’m not a big fan of perfumes but couldn’t live without scented creams. This isn’t an intensive moisturizer but gets the job done and smells incredible!

FOR MY HAIR: Almond oil

It has kept my hair shiny and soft despite of all the heat and coloring I’ve put it through this year. Almond oil is cheap, does everything that expensive hair products claim to do and can be used in so many ways. (more…)
