When it comes to my hair, I struggle. Maybe it was the years my mother tortured it endlessly with sponge curlers and exsessive teasing? Flashback to my years of competitive dancing growing up… wigs, bobby pins, curlers, hair nets, etc. You name it, we probably encountered it at some point. As I’ve gotten older, I have embarked on a mission to find the best products to give my hair life; volume and loose curls. Here’s what I found works best for me, what are some of your favorites?
Shampoo & Conditioner: a product without the addition of unnecessary chemicals is a much better solution to care for fine and/or thin hair. Sulfate free shampoo and conditioners has less chemicals in it, which tend to weigh your hair down and can even cause your hair to fall out. I love Living Proof Restore Shampoo & Conditioner and both Aveeno and L’Oreal have versions you can purchase at your nearest Target.
Thickness & Volume: either the Living Proof 5 and 1 or Bumble and Bumble Thickening Mousse depending on what my plans are for the day. Both are gently massaged into your scalp when your hair is still damp, then blown dry to add volume and strength to your hair.
Curls: If I plan to curl my hair, I typically will utilize the products above to add thickness and volume and then lightly spray some Bumble and Bumble Sea Salt Spray to add texture and grit to my hair before curling with my T3 wand. I have tried several different brands and keep going back to Bumble and Bumble because of the smell, price and how long my curls last when using it. The T3 wand is amazing because it comes with 3 different size barrels based on the type of curl you’re looking for!
