The Blonde Hair Diaries
|Alice Eve. DREAM HAIR!
Enough about me, oh wait, let's keep talking about me. The main thing keeping me from going for a short 'do is that I don't know if I can pull off short hair anymore, now that ye olde high school body has gone with way of the dinosaur. Like, I feel like I need to cut weight for a month before I even get serious about cutting my hair this short again.

If you need me, I'll be jogging in my trash bag suit, chasing this body.
Below is my super-serious hair growth regimen - I figured I'd pay it forward, since LAWD KNOWS my weave can use some good karma! Enjoy and pretty pretty please let me know your secrets for keeping your baby blonde hair from looking thirsty!
|Kerastase Bain de Force Shampoo
I have tried just about every shampoo and conditioner on the market, and I always come back to Kerastase. The shampoo never dries out my hair, which is kind of a miracle, because it naturally has the texture of straw. The conditioner always leaves my straw-hair super soft and never greasy!

|Orofluido Hair Oil
Orofluido has replaced Moroccan Oil as my miracle hair product (thanks, Birchbox!). It smells SO amazing, and makes my hair even softer than Moroccan Oil, which I didn't think was possible!
Viviscal nourishes hair follicles, strengthens/encourages growth of existing hair, promotes growth of weaker, less visible hairs, and makes hair look more vibrant and feel better.
I received my Mason Pearson hairbrush (with gold engraved monogram, natch) from my wonderful Mother-in-Law a few Christmases ago, and it's one of my most prized possessions! I think the monogrammed MP might be my favorite find from Summer is a Verb - you can order them over the phone from The Engraving Shop in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Biotin is most often thought of as the “hair growth vitamin.” It is an essential water-soluble B vitamin. Biotin has come to be known for its role in the health and beauty of Hair, Skin and Nails. It promotes healthy hair growth and protects against dryness. It also increases the elasticity of the hair's cortex, thus preventing breakage.
|Aquis Microfiber Hair Towel
This hair towel is super gentle on your hair and dries it really quickly! It's another amaze find from our spirit animal Alice at Summer is a Verb.
What do you think, guys? Should I stop hiding behind my hair blanket or what? Since I'll most likely chicken out and get my typical quarter inch trim, what are your tips for keeping your strands looking healthy?
P.S. - I also purchased a bottle of Hair, Skin & Nails vitamins from Mother's Market today and then realized it's a men's formula - I mean I'm still going to take them because I live dangerously, but I'm going to hold off on posting a recommendation until I'm sure that they don't make me grow an Adam's apple or something.
