Outfit Of The Yesterday: Leopard + Graphite Gray + Coral + Neon Yellow (& Hair, Hair, Hair)

♫: Hang Me Up to Dry – Cold War Kids

Let’s talk hair for a bit, yes? Warmer weather always makes me want to cut my hair, so I decided last week to choppity-chop a few inches off to finally get rid of some frizzy, damaged ends. Whew–I feel much, much better! I mean, I should clarify–I do often wear clip-in hair extensions, and I will continue to wear those once in awhile because long hair is fun (and they also help hide my gigantic Lupus-related bald spots, isn’t that super special to talk about and discuss), but sometimes it’s nice to be able to go without those violent little motherfuckers hair extension clips angrily digging themselves into the back of my head all day long.

I had quite a bit of damage from a dying mishap two years ago, back when I went from being dark red to light blonde. And while my hair is naturally very thin, the few strands I do have are also naturally coarse–which means that I usually have to ‘heat treat’ and wrestle with my hair to smooth it down.

Most of us know that it is hard to prevent further damage while trying to grow out already damaged hair, so it has been a long and delicate process to get to this point–but there are a few hair products that I added to my hair care arsenal over the past two years that, in my opinion, helped immensely to repair some of the damage and prevent further frizzies. Thanks to genetics (and Lupus) I will never have shampoo model hair, but I’m pretty sure if I just keep spending more and more money on hair products…

Well. Whatever.  I really like these products, check them out:

Yes, yes–I am a huge Alterna junkie. While expensive, I have never found an Alterna product that I didn’t love, and Skinstore.com often has 20% off promos which help make the prices a little kinder on the wallet. Their new bamboo line is especially great–the Smooth Kendi Treatment Oil comes in a fairly small bottle, but you only need a few drops to make hair shine. After three months of steady use I still have about half of my bottle left–not bad!

So! What’s is your favorite haircare product? Or have you recently tried anything awesome & new (& magical)? Share in the comments! ♥

    Still crazy about that Emerson Fry jacket…sigh. Thought you might be able to help with a recently acquired obsession with an oldie but goodie, the Chloe Paddington. I was never interested in these “it” bags back in the day but recently have just become enamored. No idea why. Since the only way to get one is buy used, what are the authenticity keys to look out for, do you know? I’ve picked up 2 of them on eBay and they’re heavy, the leather is soft and very collapsible, and the hallmarks of authenticity seem to be there. Am I missing anything? Anyone in ChloeConspiracyLand have any tips?

    I LOVE the Kendi dry oil spray, but I haven’t tried the serum that you posted. I’m also a big Phyto fan.

  • I love Alterna too! That overnight repair serum is amazing. I also just tried Oribe’s ultra gentle shampoo and signature condition and love them.

  • Caroline L.

    You hit it out of the ballpark again with this gorgeous outfit! Hair is just so tedious, I’m always too lazy to care… I should change this mindset soon, ha!

  • Loving the color of your skirt!

  • First, awesome outfit. Second, I am so going to try the Fekkai Straightening Balm because I am just so such a hair product junkie. I’ve been using Pureology’s Precious Oil and I love it. Totally recommend it.

  • Rebecca

    I have this coat too and I absolutely LOVE it!

  • I have never been too much into hair products to be honest. I don’t have shampoo commercial type of hair, but I don’t find anything particularly wrong with it (most days). I did start using the Clear shampoo/conditioner (heidi klum commercial?) that really leaves it feeling so so soft and silky so I’m happy with those. I am trying to branch out and find a good hair masque, so far drugstore brand have done nothing for me so I might have to shell out more bucks but I want something I’ll actually notice working. Love the short hair!
