Favorite Products for a Smooth and Shiny Blowout

Instead of sprinkling product recommendations randomly throughout my posts, I am planning on putting together some videos where I list all of my favorite products in one place. That way, you don’t have to go pilfering through years of posts looking for that ONE time I might have mentioned my all-time favorite shampoo/curl product/curling iron/etc. (Seriously, DUH. Why did it take me so long to do this?)

Today’s video is all about smooth blowouts. My favorite products, tools and brushes for several different types of hair. Enjoy!

    I bought the FF Glossing Cream after watching this video & was shocked that it does absolutely NOTHING for my hair! I have fine, wavy hair that is mostly easy to straighten.

    Did anyone else experience this?? It got stellar reviews on Sephora, so I was really expecting it to be amazing…. I guess for now I’ll stick to my Aveda products…

    Pantene Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm is amazing. I’m obsessed with it. And it’s dirt cheap! Thanks for the recommendation.
