Every hydrating, smoothing, and luxurious hair product you could ever want for all hair types. Below are hair products that I use daily. They all provide different benefits and products that I bring to college, back home for breaks, and every trip and vacation. In addition, some hair devices are also very noteworthy and necessary for day-to-day routines.
Olaplex Hair Treatment
All of the Olaplex hair treatment products are worth the investment. The Olaplex treatment process includes products that range from No 1 – No 8, and provide benefits to hair such as smoothing and straightening. Specifically for dry, frizzy, and damaged hair, the Olaplex treatment will repair broken hair bonds. It will make your hair healthier and make you feel more confident.

Whether it is using a blowdryer, flat iron, or curling iron, this spray can be used to ensure that the high temperatures of heat do not damage your hair. Especially in college, when applying heat to your hair is such normality, this spray will prevent any damage from the overuse of heat.
Ouai Wave Spray
This is a hair product that I can definitely not live without. It is an excellent post-shower leave-in conditioner that leaves your hair feeling smooth and silky. It is a great tool to help your hair dry naturally with less frizz, especially for people with frizzier hair like myself. This spray helps to keep your natural hair feeling just as nice as if you did it yourself.

This product is amazing at moisturizing and nourishing your hair. Especially as a student at a cold school such as UW-Madison that can damage hair, this product is great to limit how dry my hair gets and get it as hydrated as possible.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush
This one-step round brush dryer is the best essential for anyone who enjoys styling their hair. For someone who has long, thick hair, this has been the only hairdryer that I have found that dries my hair entirely in under 20 minutes, whereas regular blow dryers can take up to double that time.

The Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream is another great post-shower leave-in hair treatment that can add shine and eliminate frizz. Just a tiny amount of this hair product can remove all tangles and knots and leave your hair smelling and feeling great.

This product is great for our (not so natural) blondes who want to avoid brassiness and darker shades showing. Using this privacy once a week helps keep my highlights and overall blonde feel intact and helps keep up the color until my next foil.
GHD Platinum Styler 1” Flat Iron
This flat iron is great and leaves your hair feeling silky and smooth for days. For someone who has difficult hair like me, this product is very reliable and helpful to give you that salon look.

The CHI Luxury Black Seed Oil Revitalizing Mask is the best hair mask I have ever used and is incorporated to be used weekly in my hair routine. Just leaving this mask in your fair for 5-10 minutes while in the shower will leave your hair feeling incredibly soft and smooth.
