A lot of you have been kind enough to to compliment on my hair recently, so I thought I’d quickly share some of my latest hair product discoveries. My hair is tricky to “volumize” because I am blessed with quite some thick hair. If I use a real volumizing product, most of the time my hair puffs up like a spooked cat. However, I have found three gems that give my hair more body, curl, and bounce. Care to find out what they are?
1. *SACHAJUAN Normal Hair Shampoo
Apparently, besides fragrance and skincare, the Swedes also know all about hair! The pleasantly-scented SACHAJUAN Normal Hair Shampoo promises gentle cleansing as well as increased volume and shine. Right after I finish shampooing my hair, I could feel my hair is thicker and has more body. My scalp is on the oilier side, but I don’t think this is any worse at keeping it fresh for a couple of days compared to my more astringent shampoos! Maybe I’ll pluck up enough courage to try the sample sachet of Volume Shampoo I have next time. SACHAJUAN also makes a few body lotions. I’ve tried Ginger Flower, and the only complaint I have is there is not enough in the sachet because it smells divine!
2. *Kerastase Curl Fever
Kerastase Curl Fever is a slightly iridescent gel. I apply a pump and a half to towel-dried hair before drying it with a diffuser. If you got your curl from your mama, you might even be able to leave it air dry! The gel feels a little sticky when the hair is still damp. However, once it’s dry, there is no stickiness or crunchiness at all. Not only does it make my hair curlier, it also adds body and bounce. I want to say it gives the hair a bit of “texture” as well, but that would be a strange thing to say, as you really can’t feel the gel at all!
3. Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish
Second-day hair isn’t necessarily greasy, but it might have lost some of that freshly-shampooed oomph. Now you can put it back with Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish! This is not a dry shampoo equivalent at all. If your hair is greasy, I’d definitely steer you in the direction of a good dry shampoo (René Furterer Naturia is my favorite). If you want that supermodel wind-in-the-hair swag, take a look at Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish! The spray feels a teeny bit stiff at first, but that disappears fast. You are left with photoshoot-ready hair that you’ll want to swish around Baywatch style!
Before you ask, I have Rescue Beauty Lounge Sunny Skies on my nails. I recently laid my hands on Pretty Gritty, Sunny Skies, and Small Dim, Summer Stars. I promise to show you decent swatches soon!
How about you? Any recent hair product discoveries? What are you wearing on your nails?
