These 8 Products Make Every Day a “Good Hair Day”

Let’s be honest: We all wish we could have a “good hair day” every day of the week, but not many of us do. Whether your hair is damaged, dry, frizzy, or thinning, it can be difficult to achieve the beautiful hair you dream of on a daily basis. 

Thankfully, there are several things you can do to maximize the health and integrity of your hair, including using a personalized hair care regimen with high-quality products. Everyone’s hair is unique, and your stylist can help you determine which products will work best for you. At Cole’s we have a few must-have, holy grail products well-suited for many of our clients.

Scalp health is very important when it comes to great-looking hair — almost as important as healthy roots are to a tree! The healthier your scalp, the more likely new hair will grow in stronger.

My favorite products for improving scalp health include: 

Oribe Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo

A clarifying shampoo has so many benefits for your hair and scalp, and I especially love Oribe’s Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo. It’s a mousse that transforms into a creamy, indulgent lather during use, providing you with ultra-clean hair. Clarifying shampoos are typically used only once a week or as needed, so an additional standard shampoo is still a necessary part of your hair care routine. 

Bumble and bumble Bond-Building Repair Shampoo 

Reparative shampoos can have such a positive impact on your hair’s health. As someone with some hair damage, I’ve seen such a difference in the integrity of my hair after using Bumble and bumble’s Bond-Building Reparative Shampoo. This product works to smooth, strengthen, moisturize, and add shine to your hair!

It’s great at repairing damage while also preventing future damage. But my favorite thing about it? It’s color-safe and can be used on any hair type!

Oribe Serene Scalp Oil Control Treatment Mist

Something that’s often overlooked when curating your own hair care routine is a leave-on scalp treatment. Scalp treatments play a vital role in scalp health, which helps to foster hair growth. Since they often get applied post-hair wash, they work in between washes to maintain a healthy scalp. Some benefits you may see from this product include:

  1. reduction of excess oil and sebum
  2. rebalancing of the scalp’s microbiome
  3. rebalancing of the skin’s bacterial landscape
  4. promotion of healthy bacteria while mattifying the scalp, reducing oil
  5. soothing, balancing, and moisturization of the scalp

This treatment helps to reduce oil while also promoting a healthy scalp and can be used after every wash. One of the best things about it is that it helps your hair stay cleaner longer, maximizing your time between washes and allowing you to enjoy your favorite styles. The product is applied on towel-dried hair directly to the scalp.

It’s important to foster a healthy scalp to improve hair growth, but it’s also just as important to take care of your strands. If you don’t, you might see more damage and breakage, which gives the appearance of your hair staying the same length even if it’s actually growing. 


There are several products out there to take care of your hair strands, but these are a few of my favorites:

Bumble and bumble Bond-Building Repair Conditioner 

Just like the shampoo, Bumble and bumble’s conditioner works to build new bonds, strengthening your hair to a new level. My hair has never felt better — or stronger — than when stepping out of the shower after using this product in combination with the shampoo. This product works to:

  1. smooth and defrizz the hair strand
  2. strengthen and repair hair by building new bonds
  3. add moisture to the hair
  4. detangle hair for a gentler brush
  5. add shine to the hair

Like the shampoo, this conditioner is color-safe and good for all hair types! For best results, we recommend you let the conditioner sit in your hair for about 2-3 minutes to maximize the benefits. 

Another product you can use to really give your hair a boost is a hair mask. A hair mask is essentially a concentrated version of a conditioner, meaning you use it every few washes or as needed, in place of conditioner.

Oribe Gold Lust Transformative Masque

Masks (or masques!) are a step in the hair care routine that many often forget. Thankfully, you don’t need to use a hair mask every time you wash, in part because of the insane levels of benefits they provide with just one use. Oribe’s Gold Lust Transformative Masque is one of my favorites, because it works to rebuild damaged hair while maintaining healthy hair. 

Pro Tip: Just as you would with a conditioner, a hair mask should sit on the hair for 2-3 minutes, but feel free to leave it on longer if you want to really indulge.

You can also use leave-in products to enhance and protect your hair between washes. I have two holy grail products I can’t go a day without.

Oribe Hair Alchemy Fortifying Treatment Serum

A leave-in product is one of those that when you find the one that works for you, you stick by it for life. Since this serum hit the market I haven’t been able to stay away. The best leave-in products are those that help strengthen and protect the hair, and this one does a stellar job at both. 

Something you should always double check with leave-in products is that you are using at least one with some heat protection in it. One of the best parts of this particular serum? It has heat protection up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit! It can be used on damp or dry hair by working a small amount throughout the mids and ends. This serum can also be used as an overnight treatment for intensive results. 

The final step in your routine should be something that seals in all of the benefits from the products previously applied to maintain beautiful hair.

Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream

This leave-in is one of the best on the market! A little goes a long way with this stuff, which means you can savor this product even longer than usual. Since adding it to my routine, I’ve seen an amazing difference in the appearance and feel of my hair. This product helps:

  1. provide conditioning
  2. smooth split ends
  3. tame frizz
  4. provide moisture
  5. give a high-gloss finish

It’s specifically designed for people with medium to thick hair. If it sounds like something you’d love to try, but your current hair doesn’t fall under that category, I have great news! We also offer Oribe’s Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream, perfect for those of us with fine to medium hair. It can be applied to the mids and ends of towel-dried hair, then blow dried in or air dried. You can also use this product on dry hair for a touch-up on flyaways or for added moisture throughout the day. Another bonus: It provides heat protection!

Finding the correct products for your hair can be tricky, and you may see a bit of trial and error before you find the ones meant for you. If you are struggling to find what works best, please stop in for a complimentary consultation with us. We’d love to help you achieve the hair of your dreams! With the correct routine and products, we can all achieve that elusive “good hair day” every day.
