Friday Faves: Hair Edition

Woohoo it is finally Friday! This week has been long and tiring, so I am glad that it is over :)


This morning I made myself a protein packed breakfast due to the difficult practice that awaited me.

IMG_1782 After seeing chicken sausage on Julie’s blog, I decided to give it a try. I am glad that I did! This morning’s breakfast was amazing! I threw cheese, tomatoes, onions, avocado, and chicken sausage into my eggs. I will definitely be making this again :)



This year my coach wants to have our difficult practices on Mondays and Fridays (rather than Mondays and Thursdays). I was expecting my coach to surprise us with a 6k, but we ended up doing 2 ab pyramids and 7 x 3 mins. I have never liked that workout. Like ever. I am not very good at sprinting for more than 2 minutes, so this workout is always a challenge for me. Fortunately, I was able to beat my goals that I set for myself for today!

Friday Faves: Hair Edition

Now for the fun stuff! I have tried soooo many different shampoos and conditioners. After many years of searching, I finally found the perfect shampoos and conditioners. These products have made a huge difference for my hair. Not only does my hair feel healthier, but it looks healthier now :)

  • My Favorite Shampoo



This shampoo is absolutely amazing! I love how this shampoo does not have all of the scary (unpronounceable) chemicals that other shampoos do. I also love the integration of moroccan argan oil. I had heard a lot of good reviews on moroccan argan oil but was skeptical. After years of watching rediculously fake shampoo commercials, I have become very skeptical when it comes to hair products. I decided to give this shampoo a shot and now I am in love. Too bad it took me this long!

  • My Favorite Conditioner



I cannot believe how wonderful this conditioner is. I was not expecting it to be anything special when I bought it… but it is! My hair use to get super knotty after taking showers that it was a pain brushing it. After using this conditioner, my hair began to become manageable and super smooth. Now, I cannot image not using this conditioner!

    That breakfast bowl looks fantastic! Yum.

    That shampoo/conditioner combo looks promising. Loving the no-chemicals. Does it help with the straightening? Two wavy/curly girls over here want to know!

    That breakfast looks delicious! Sorry you’ve been having some difficult practices. I wonder why your coach wants Friday to be a hard workout, that should be your light day! We are spending our weekend in Chicago, just got in last night! Updates to come on my blog. :)

    nom….breakfast bowl looks delicious.

    I use apple cider vinger to clarify and clean my hair because normal shampoos are usally too harsh on my hair and strip the moisture. I use coconut oil for hot oil treatments. my all time favorite conditioner is Herbal Essence Hello Hydration.

    It’s restaurant week in my town so i have a few lunch and dinner plans with my friends and beau :)

    I have really been loving Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine conditioner over others. It always makes my hair silky smooth and it’s so easy to brush after a shower. I have tried some other Garnier Fructis conditioners but that one is the best in my opinion. I haven’t done much experimenting with expensive brands but I have tried biolage and like it!

    Mmm your breakkie does look scrumptious!

    And I’ve heard how great Brazilian Keratin is! There’s even a treatment “perm” type of deal that makes it ethereally smooth and healthy. To be honest, I don’t do much for my haircare and usualllly use whatever looks GOOD ENOUGH and inexpensive (like Aussie, sometimes nice products that my mom hands me over, or Kirkland) :P I guess I don’t worry about my hair too much because it’s ultra strong and thick, but maybe I should be more cautious about it for the future–especially b/c I hear that giving birth takes a toll on the mom’s hair health. 0_0
