My Top Five Hair Care Products for Soft & Manageable Hair

Let’s Care for Your Hair!

My hair has felt more soft and manageable ever since Lilla Rose launched our Hair Care Line!

This is a BIG birthday year for me – 2023 is my Year of Jubilee! – and I’ve got an increasing number of tinsel strands gracing my head. Those hairs seem to have a mind of their own, but LR Hair Care helps me to keep them in check.

We call these our Essentials Line, and I regularly use the Hair TowelRosewater MistHair MasqueHair Serum, and Wide Tooth Comb, and I love how they make my hair easy to comb and soft to the touch! Here are my top selections, in no particular order:

1) Rose Water Mist

I did a whole blog post explaining Rosewater here. I still love the stuff! I love the smell and the softness it brings to my hair. At my last gathering, a friend told me that she uses it as a facial toner. My Granny used to use Rose Milk Lotion, and this smell takes me back to those days. I love my Rosewater!

2) Hair Masque

Hair Masque is sooo smooth and creamy! The instructions say to use on towel-dried hair, leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse. I do that occasionally, but my favorite way to use the Masque is to add a pea-size amount to the ends of my hair dry, and leave it in. I do this probably 3 times a week, and keep this tube on my desk for easy access!

3) Hair Serum

Y’all. Hair Serum was publicly introduced in February 2023. But I was able to use it for about 2 months before it went live. I had no idea how to use it before I got some, so what I did was take two drops of the oil in the palm of my hand, then get some on my fingertips and massage that into the crown of my head. Then I rubbed my hands together and use the rest on the length of my hair. About 2 weeks later, I noticed NEW HAIRS around the crown of my head! I was so ecstatic! So then I started massaging Hair Serum into my temples where the hair has gotten a litle thinner, and the same thing happened! I’m hooked!

4) Hair Towels

Yes, I added an ‘s’ on that word! For faster dry time, I recommend our Bamboo Hair Towel! Alternatively, the (purple) Cotton Gauze Hair Towel allows you to dry just a little bit slower, which is helpful for the curly girls out there! I actually use a combination of both, depending on the day.

5) Wide Tooth Comb

I use the Wide Tooth Comb daily. It’s perfect for my hair. It’s also great for using in the shower when you’re doing the Hair Masque treatment, and using dry to work the Masque or Serum through your dry hair. Such a useful tool. See our Essentials page for an assortment of brush and comb types to meet your needs.

I just started using the Silk Pillowcase, too! I’ll add my thoughts on that soon! We also have Hair Mascara to cover your roots or add temporary color to your hair, Sea Salt Spray for texture, Thermal Defense for heat protection, and more! See the full collection of hair Essentials here!

Top 5 Most Comfortable Hair Accessories for Busy Moms & More!

Let’s find Hair Accessories that don’t hurt your head!

We’ve all been there. Some of these hair accessories are painful! I’m a busy mom – homeschooling and homesteading take up most of my time. I need hair accessories and hair care that is easy and most of all, COMFORTABLE!

Lilla Rose to the rescue!

In my opinion, here are the top most comfortable hair accessories, in order of comfort (#1 being the most comfortable to me):

1) Wood Pin Flexi Flip 

With their all-natural materials, these are so lightweight (yet still durable), that I can barely tell I’m wearing anything in my hair! Bonus: One of them is named after me! See below! That’s me – Sue Ellen Wood Pin Flexi Flip on the left; Courtney Wood Pin Flexi Flip on the right. These, along with all the other clips listed below, are just as easy to use as the original Flexi-Clip, so that’s a plus as well!

2) Flexi Sport 

These are also lightweight, but the grippy texture holds the hair really well! I use the Medium as a Small for a ponytail and the Extra as a Medium for a full twist! (Based on Flexi Flip sizing chart) These are waterproof and hold everything in place really well, even during an exercise or sports activity!

3) Flexi Flip 

The Flip is reversable, so one clip will cover several of your sizes. In these photos, I’m wearing a Medium on the left and an Extra on the right. More of my hair is wrapped in the Extra, but I’m also using it flipped to the smaller size. See more in the video below.

I’m also actually using a Flip in the video found under the next section, too!

4) Flexi Clip 

It’s the gold standard. Seven sizes means the right size for you should also be a comfortable fit for you! I most often use a Flexi-Clip for my half-ups and full twists because I love the variety of beautiful centerpieces and beadwork! There is literally a color or designs that will suit every personality and style!

In the above video, I’m using a FLIP, but all of these Clips are all similar enough that any style I can do with a Flip, I can also do with a Clip or a Sport! (now that’s a mouthful!) How do I choose from day-to-day? Usually, I choose based on the design or colors. For the video above, the “Penny” Flip is the only thing I had with some green in it, to match my shirt that day.

5) Acrylic Upins 

I love these little powerhouse hair forks – Acrylic Upins!! They’re super easy for a quick bun, so it’s handy to keep these where you spend your time – one in your purse, in your desk pencil cup, in the car, in your shower caddy, on your bedside table.

They’re perfect for a high bun in the shower (waterproof!) on a “no-poo” day and great for a high bun to sleep in! With over 20 colors to choose from, there will be one that goes with your style and your outfit!

Though we rarely think about it – everyone’s head is a little bit differently shaped. So we may not all rank comfort on the same scale. I’ve heard from quite a few people, however, that would agree with my comfort scale.

So were you looking for hair ties that cause the least amount of damage, too?

Maybe a tie is not exactly what you need! All of the accessories I just mentioned for comfort are also gentle on your hair, and I rarely pull out hair when using them. (I don’t believe that statement could describe the elastic alternatives!)

There is a slight learning curve to this type of barrette or pin, but after using these exclusively for over 10 years, I find them much easier to use than elastics and ties!

When you shop with me, I am happy to help you learn how to use your accessories, too!
