I am always getting compliments on my hair & I am not too humble to say this because I put a lot of time and effort into my hair! My haircare routine is a bit complicated because the two things I want to achieve with my hair, really don’t go together.
I love big, bouncy and voluminous hair. In order to achieve that it’s best to stay away from moisturizing products that can tend to way your hair down so I tend to use clarifying Shampoo and double wash. This gets rid of all the oils in my hair and gives it the maximum volume.
I also love shiny, luscious and touchable hair. For hair like this you need moisturizing conditioners and masks. I also have minimally color treated hair (highlights) and blow dry my hair every time I wash it, so to avoid damaging it, I have to heavily moisturize.
Do you see my issue? If you don’t, I will tell you. Both parts of my routine can completely cancel each other out! Luckily, I have found a few tricks to “have it all”. Yes, you can have big, voluminous hair that is soft and smooth to the touch.
My technique is quite simple. I use Shampoos that are for volume, which typically strip your hair of all your oils. Then, I use hair masks or deep conditioning products on the bottom 2/3’s of my hair. So I get volume on the top and touchable softness on the bottom!
I am currently using the following products
For days that I feel like my hair is dry, brittle or has been through the “ringer”, I use this. It won’t give me volume, but it does smooth my hair and make it shiny, tangle free and smooth
