I’ve got a good selection of hair products currently on the go that I’ve been loving and using a lot, so I thought I would do a post about them. A bit about my hair — I have thick, dry, wavy hair which is definitely prone to frizz (summer + my hair = the ultimate enemies), so I guess these products are geared towards managing this sort of hair type…
“Contains shield-forming and shine-enhancing ingredients to help resist heat up to 230° C.”
The only way I can keep my hair looking smooth is by using a hair straightener a couple of times a week (I use the Cloud Nine Wide Iron which is amazing). To combat the fried, damaged hair that inevitably comes with heat styling, I spray a healthy dose of this on beforehand. It protects your hair from the heat and leaves your hair looking seriously shiny afterwards which is a nice added bonus. Holy grail product right here, I can’t live without it.
“This ultra-fine mist is the secret to loose, beachy waves without the stiffness or crunch.”
I have already done a full blog post on this product – that’s how much I love it, so I won’t repeat myself. In short, this spray works wonders and smells absolutely amazing. So glad Ouai is readily available here in Aus as I can’t seem to get enough of this brand! You can read my full post about the Wave Spray here.
“Delivers 5 benefits in one bottle – smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish.”
When Mecca stopped carrying Living Proof, I actually emailed them to ask WTF happened and they said something about losing the rights to carrying it in Australia. Gutted! I have just under half a bottle of this leave-in treatment left and am using it as sparingly as possible. I pop a bit into damp hair and usually let it air dry, it leaves my hair so soft and definitely helps sort out the frizz.
“This luxurious Hair Oil smooths frizz and seals split ends for a high-gloss, silky finish.”
Another favourite from Ouai, this oil is incredibly lightweight and like the Wave Spray, not at all greasy. I must admit I don’t *love* the way it smells, but that’s not at all a deal breaker as the product itself is just too great to not use solely because of the smell. After washing my hair, I run a bit through the ends of my damp hair and it leaves it looking super smooth, shiny and glossy. Absolutely beautiful product, I cannot recommend this enough.
“A pre-styler that protects, conditions, and eases styling for dry, brittle, or coarse hair”
Lastly, is this Bumble and Bumble cult favourite. Not gonna lie, it’s popularity definitely influenced why I decided to buy it and I must say it’s definitely worth the hype. To me, this product functions in the same way a makeup primer would. Apply it before styling and it just smooths down the texture of my hair, making it a million times easier to work with. Use sparingly though, as I have found that too much of this can definitely weigh down the hair.
