Three on Thursday

Welcome back to Three on Thursday, my weekly even though I sometimes skip weeks list of things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks, you can find those here.

1. Invisibobble Hair Ties.  If you're sitting there thinking 'Stephanie, it's totally ridiculous to spend $8 on 3 hair ties,' well, you're not wrong.  In case you missed yesterday's post, my hair care routine is ... extensive, hence all the hair related recommendations today.  Yes, starting with $8 hair ties.  I love these things.  So, they're supposed to be 'invisible' as in, they don't leave that hair tie mark across your hair after you let it down.  That is not the case for me, but that's because my hair is thick and heavy and takes and holds shape very easily.  But the mark is much less, definitely.  The reason I love them though is because of how gentle yet effective they are on my hair.  The never tug or pull strands out, but it also stays put throughout the day, without feeling like it's too tight.  Do you know what I mean?  Either the hair tie is so tight and not moving but giving you a headache, or it slips out and you're readjusting your ponytail every hour.  Not with these.  It stays exactly where I put it and never hurts my head.  Just adore them.

2. Alba Botanica Plumeria Shampoo and Conditioner.  I'm very picky about shampoos and conditioners, because I can definitely see the difference they make in my hair.  These are actually incredibly affordable and they work so well.  They get clean ratings on the Think Dirty app, so there's no nasty ingredients.  Plus is very gentle since it's for color treated hair.  I do get my hair highlighted, but it would work even if you didn't do any color treating.  They leave my hair very soft and not weighed down at all.  I have a lot of natural shampoos and conditioners that I like a lot, but they tend to be expensive.  This is a great drugstore option.

3. Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner.  That's a mouthful for what's basically glorified detangler for adults.  I use this after my hair air dries for awhile, and spray it in before brushing.  Helps so much with tangles!  It also leaves my hair shiny but not greasy at all, and there's no feeling of it being in your hair, like nothing sticky or stiff.  I could tell it worked after one use, but I've also seen extra results when I use it on a consistent basis, like less frizz and split ends.  It's not as 'clean' as the shampoo and conditioner, since it has fragrance and one preservative, but still nothing that concerns me enough not to use it.  And like everything else I use, it's cruelty free.

Happy Thursday!
