So I recently made a big chop due to my annoying extremely fine straight long limp hair. My eagerness of growing it out and curling the ends with a curling iron was pretty much done deal when I thought of how much time I would require to style it that way everyday. Let's face it, I'm lazy when it comes to hair. I hardly even want to brush it on some days. So I went for it, off to the hairdresser with a picture of Michelle Monoghan on my phone. Like all other times I go for a chop of more than 5 inches I almost 100% regret it. I didn't regret this at all, and I felt like I had this baggage lifted off of me. Why the heck did I wait so long?!
And voila! OK, I sort of hid behind the dog, but I hope you get the idea :)
And now onto my hair products...
Baby Power - I forgot to include a picture of this but this is probably my most used hair product. I use it every morning after I brush my hair by rubbing it around my scalp so that it soaks up any grease throughout the day. You have to work this in well because you don't want people to be able to see the white powder on your hair. The end result should be fluffy hair :p There is a similar product by Bumble and Bumble that comes in various hair colours but is ridiculously priced. So unless you have $35+ to spare, just stick with baby powder. I have black hair and it works fine. Now onto the rest of the hair products...
1. Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel - I'm not an expert in the hair gel area, but this works great for my random flyaways (I have lots of these) and is great for twisting up front bangs on those my-bangs-are-so-gross-and-ugly days. Plus Herbal Essences products always smells so good, and such a great price.
2. Aveda Volumizing Tonic - This smells uniquely good. It's not the greatest at volumizing dry hair but works well at volumizing layered hair when you go through the damp hair + blow dry process.
3. CHI Silk Infusion - My favourite heat protectant because it's effective. I've tried other drugstore brands like Tresemme and Dove but they just do not compare with CHI. But please CHI if you are reading this, please make another version that smells better!! My hair smells like Pho after using this - enough said.
4. Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Hairspray - This hairspray is awesomesauce. Flip your hair upside down and spray. I got scared the first time I used it with my short short hair. I looked like I got electrocuted. But all I had to do was brush it lightly and it left with me with great volume. It doesn't last all day, but it's still awesome in my books.
So there are my most used hair products. As you can see, most of my products aren't HG material because they all have their pros and cons but they are sufficient for my lazy hair styling purposes.
