Old School Beauty Products To Pick Up Again
We love a good hair and beauty trend at The Cut Life, but sometimes you have to take a step back and revisit a few oldies that are still goodies when it comes to slaying your mane. Walk down memory lane with us as we revisit some of the OG beauty products. Who knows, maybe you’ll find what’s been missing in your routine.
We know it’s been shouted from the rooftops to say no to petroleum based products but hear us out. In days past, products like Blue Magic were applied to dry hair and scalps to instill moisture, which honestly wasn’t doing anyone any good, BUT it can’t be denied that grease is a good sealant. Try applying after your favorite leave-in and you’ll have moisture for DAYSSSSSS! You must promise us however that you will take care to use a clarifying shampoo more often to eliminate the buildup.
We’re willing to bet $5 that somewhere in your buckets of beauty products you have a jar of the Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream. Another beauty salon staple of yesteryear, this cream gets the job done. Not only does it serve as a great moisturizer, but it’s also ideal for perfectly defined twist-outs and braid-outs.
Oh those wonderful days of scooping out globs of green cream and slapping it onto your hair and scalp. Yep. We’re talking the OG deep conditioner: Olive Oil Cholesterol. With the many options on the market now for deep conditioning treatments, masques, and more, it’s always nice to return to an old friend that’s tried and true when it comes to achieving and maintaining moisturized hair. Plus, with it’s super thick texture, this old-school product is ideal for those of us with hair that tends to soak up other deep conditioners.
Who remembers those days of waiting to sit under the dreaded dryer for your wrap to set? You probably also remember your stylist using Lottabody Setting Lotion to get that wrap right! To this day, the Lottabody Setting Lotion is a product that is still loved and respected amongst relaxed and natural ladies rocking relaxed and natural tresses. If you want flawless wraps, defined roller sets or just for your pixie to be laid, run out and get you some of this magic in a bottle. An added bonus!? Lottabody is still crazy affordable.
If you want voluminous curls but don’t want to spend hours with a curling iron or sleep on flexirods (admit it, it’s NOT comfortable), take a look back at hot rollers. With hot rollers, you can roll your hair up, set it and finish getting ready for your day – a multi-taskers dream. By the time the rollers have cooled, you’ll be ready to unveil model-level curls. To help the curls stay even longer, hit them with a bit of hair spray. Et voila!
