My Current Hair Routine

It’s a Process!

I think I’ve finally *finally* got my hair styling routine down to a science. I tried everything under the sun over the years and this is my best by far. I can actually get my stick-straight-extra-fine-dense hair to hold a style. It’s truly a miracle. So today I thought I’d walk you through the process.

But before I get into it, just know the trick for me is to get my hair to have A LOT of texture. So I’m not shy about the dry shampoo and texture spray, the more the better!

Let me know if you have any questions – I’m happy to answer in the comments below. 😉

Step 1: Wash & Condition.

I’m a fan of changing up my shampoo and conditioner often. I think it’s really good for your hair! So this is my current rotation below. And this morning I used this and this.

Step 2: Blow Dry & Prep

I typically let my hair dry for about 20 minutes while I do my makeup. Before I blow dry my hair, I use this heat protectant and then just roughly blow out my hair with this blow-dryer. It’s a crazy expensive blow-dryer, I know… but y’all it works.

Step 3: Style

Okay, now, this is where it gets crazy! Once I have clean, blown out hair, I immediately put in dry shampoo and a bit of texture spray. That really helps my super fine hair HOLD onto the style. Once my hair is prepped I divide it into three sections and run my curling iron through it. I love these three curling irons: Cordless, 1.5″, and 1.24″

Step 3: Make it Last

Now that my hair has been completely styled, I brush it out and use lifting powder at my roots. Then I apply more texture spray and lastly… top with hair spray!

This may seem like a lot, and maybe it is, ha! But IT WORKS! And truly, this combination is magic for me! I’ll continue to try new products and share them when I find one that works, but for right now these products are my go-to!

Also, I must mention that I can get three days out of my hair when I do this, so really… I consider it a WIN.

Do you have a holy grail styling product that you just love?! For me it’s definitely this. Can’t live without it!

    I just ordered some of the products you mentioned and can’t wait to see how they work. I know everyone’s hair is different but I am hopefully it will work on my stubborn hair! I have learned the hard way that the key seems to be investing in good products and trying to skimp with cheaper products.

    Hi Ashley,
    I love your hair routine and am always on a quest to find products to hold my style as well! It seems every hair spray I use seems to dry out my heavily highlighted hair…Does this happen with Kenra hair spray?
    Thank you

    I have been using the majority of the products recommend for the past 2-3 weeks and I have been extremely happy with the results. Thank you for sharing. I had purchased the trial sizes of the Living Proof and Bumble and Bumble products and I will be purchasing the full-size with the next Ulta or Sephora sale!
