My Most Reached-For Hair Products in 2011

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

This year I tried many different products on my hair. Perhaps it was my inner product junkie at work, but I always felt it was absolutely necessary to try many different products in order to discover what my hair loves and hates (this was especially true at the beginning of my natural journey when I didn't understand as much as I do now about how certain product ingredients behave in my hair). I'm borderline ashamed to admit that it usually doesn't take more than a couple of rave reviews from some of my favorite youtubers for me to be sold on trying a product (don't judge me, LOL). Luckily though, I can count the amount of products I ended up hating on one hand. But though I may buy and try alot of different things there's always a handful of tried and true products that I find myself reaching for over and over again. Below were my top picks for the past year. I broke it down by regimen step, and then by season. My holiest of holy grail products are those that I can reach for year-round - no matter the season. I'm not in the least bit surprised that 2 of my favorite brands for the year made the list. But I realized that the one thing most of these products have in common is their versatility. I find that I gravitate toward products that can be used in a variety of ways, which is why you'll notice that a single product may be my go-to for multiple steps in my regimen. For a complete list of my staple products and products I am currently using, check out my Products Currently in Rotation post.
