Years ago Marsha Brady taught us that beautiful hair required a nightly hair routine consisting of a beautiful vanity, silver brush and  “100 brush stokes per night.” But today, this ritual is a bit dated. We have dozens of dryers, wands, wave mists, hair oils, and dry shampoos to pick and choose from, so much so that it can make you a bit dizzy. Narrowing down to the essentials can feel like it’s an advanced course in geometric sequences. So what’s a girl to do? Edit, edit, edit! With so many great multi-benefit products available today, there are stylers and tools available for every woman, regardless of hair type. What are the beauty essentials on my vanity?

I was in Los Angeles last week and I have to tell you, my hair was amazing! Usually when I travel, my hair and skin both freak out, but in LA, my skin was dewy and blemish free and my hair bouncy, glossy, and wavy. It looked great even when I let it air dry. When I got back to Atlanta, that all changed. My bangs turned greasy within a matter of hours, and the next day, when it rained, my hair somehow managed to be both flat and frizzy. It got me thinking about climate and how big of an impact it has on our hair. We change our hair routine when we try a new cut or color; adapting to climate is just as important.

I’m going to talk about periods for a minute because, as much as I might like to deny it, my monthly cycle determines a lot: when I push myself at the gym, what I eat, what I wear, and my hair and skin care. This might seem crazy, but it actually makes a lot of sense. The fluctuating hormone levels in your body create lots of changes. During your period you produce more testosterone making this an awesome time to intensify your workouts. The following week, when your hormone levels are low is a great time to do a facial mask. How does this apply to your hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
