I’ve been blogging for about 15 years and one of the questions I get most is about my hair. I’m always so flattered by the question/compliment, and a lot of credit goes to good genetics and a great stylist! But, there is also a lot to be said for a good at-home routine with high quality products.

Two years ago, I finally wrote a blog post about my hair care routine, and some of my favorite hair products (namely heat tools!) are discounted during T3’s 25% off sale, so I wanted to re-share this post today with my current routine.

My hair care routine

While this isn’t part of my hair washing routine, I wanted to note that I’m also taking Nutrofol’s Hair Growth Nutraceutical right now to help with postpartum hair loss. I just recently started taking it, and I’m planning to be super consistent since I hear that’s how you see the best results. I’ll add updates to this post once I’ve taken it for a bit longer.


My current favorite shampoo and conditioner is the Colleen Rothschild shampoo and conditioner. It’s hydrating, smells great, and you get more ounces for almost the same price as Beautycounter, which was the shampoo and conditioner I was using prior.

While Beautycounter is the “cleanest” of the two brands, I’m an 80/20 type of person and I prefer Colleen Rothschild in this case. (This post talks about what ingredients to avoid in your shampoo!)


I use Divi Scalp Serum on my hair once it’s towel dried. (And this hair towel is a must to decrease drying time.) I apply about 3/4 a dropper right at the roots, especially. And I make sure to focus near the front where I have some postpartum hair loss.


I have been using leave in conditioner for a few months because my hair has been really dry. My current favorite is the In Common Magic Myst Universal Hair Elixir. I spray this on wet hair and then follow with volume foam.


Next, I use the Eleven Australia I Want Body Volume Foam. I love this because it gives me great lift and volume without any crunchy feeling. I apply this only at my roots. It also smells so, so good.


Before I blow dry, I apply a small amount of this Colleen Rothschild Protect & Perfect Styling Cream. this Colleen Rothschild Shine Serum just to bottom half of my hair. It helps nourish and protect my hair from the heat and humidity, while also taming flyaways.


After using the Dyson hair dryer for years, I tried the T3 Featherweight Style Max and was SHOCKED to realize how much I liked the T3 better. It’s lighter, just as fast, and I feel like it gives me more control. It’s also much more affordable (especially if you use the code TERILYN20 for 20% off).

If I’m leaving my hair straight, I don’t use a flat iron. (I don’t even own one.) My hair dries straight with a blow dryer, so that’s all I use, along with this round brush. If I’m curling my hair, I use the T3 Curling Iron or my Dyson Airwrap, depending on what type of look I want.

I shared a step my step tutorial of how I curl my hair with the T3 curling iron here, and how I use my Airwrap here.

To hold my hair up while I blow dry or curl each layer, I use these Alligator Clips.


After I’ve dried and styled my hair, I use this ELEVEN AUSTRALIA I Want Body Texture Spray. I flip my head over and spray the roots, and then I’ll also spray the ends of my hair for a little extra texture and finish.

Then, I apply this Colleen Rothschild serum on my ends one more time for extra shine and to get rid of any frizz.

Weekly Hair Treatments

Eleven I Want Clean Hair Dry Shampoo – I’m pretty picky when it comes to dry shampoo and I’ve been really pleased with this.

Eleven Keep My Colour Blonde Shampoo – I use this purple shampoo once a week to keep my color bright and fresh.

Goop Sea Salt Scalp Scrub – I use this scalp scrub once a week to help get any leftover product buildup out of my hair. It smells great and makes my hair feel so clean. If you use dry shampoo during the week, you definitely want to scrub your scalp at least once a week to get it clean. (I hate dry shampoo but if I have to use it, this is the dry shampoo I use.)

Colleen Rothschild Quench & Shine Hair Mask – I was blown away by how different my hair looked  and felt the first time I used this. It’s so hydrating but never makes my hair heavy or greasy. I use this once a week.
