My hall of fame hair products. Everything I buy again and again for healthy, shiny, volumised hair.
Before we get started, I think it’s important to point out that I buy, try and use many hair products. I have nearly as many hair products as skincare products. I’m always searching for the next best texture spray, the next best volumising shampoo, and the next best dry shampoo.
My hair is quite fine, naturally straight, and a little flat, so I rely on many of products to give it lift, volume and texture. Because of this, I’m also big on clarifying treatments and masks as I try to counteract potential product overload/over-styling damage.
So, as a result – there are a lot of products listed in each category below 🙂
Shampoo and Conditioner
When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, I’m a creature of habit. I rotate around two or three different brands and use mostly volumising shampoo, and the occasional clarifying one.
Volumising Mousse, Root Sprays and Detanglers
Before I blow dry my hair, I spritz with a detangling spray, brush through, and then move on to a volumising mousse and/or root spray – depending on how much time I have. I swear by these kinds of products to not only give me instant lift, but to help me hold on to it for a couple of days. It’s amazing how the original volume kicks back in with a good brushing and a heavy spritz of texture spray.
Detoxifying / Clarifying
I use a clarifying treatment before I wash my hair (I wash my hair every six or seven days). This is either a clarifying shampoo or a clarifying scalp treatment. There’s a couple I rotate around, and they’re all linked below.
Treatments and Masks
I use a hair mask or treatment about once every two weeks. I like low-maintenance leave-in treatments, and the occasional thick mask that I slather on and rinse out after a couple of minutes. These are the ones I swear by.
I am completely addicted to texture sprays. My naturally flat, fine hair is nothing without them. I’m very particular about which ones I use and recommend. They have to be light, not sticky, not powdery (or crunchy once they dry down) and they need to give me root lift and texture/beach type waves in the body. There are many that tick all of these boxes, and I love them all. Some are on the more expensive side, and some are affordable, but they’re all incredible.
Another product I use daily (and sometimes multiple times a day) is dry shampoo. Again, I’m really picky about dry shampoo. I have tried and binned more formulas than I’d like to admit. For me, dry shampoo has to be light, not powdery, leave zero residue, and actually soak up the oil in my hair.
Hair Oils and Serums
Because my hair is fine and flat, I generally only use oils and serums on the length and ends of my hair. They ones I use are super lightweight and pretty much undetectable on their hair (and otherwise it looks weighed down/greasy).
Hair Tools and Accessories
I use a couple of different brushes in my routine, and a few different styling tools. I’m currently contemplating the Dyson Air Wrap as everyone seems to rave about it, so I’ll update this list if/when I buy and try it.
