My all-time favorite hair products
I could have written this text two years ago and it would have included at least half of the same products it includes today. That being said, I wanted to bring to you products which I have tried and tested over years now and which make me so happy that I still stick to them. But also, you guys know, that I still try new stuff which brings me to the products I’ve only been using for a couple of months now and been really really liking. Finding the right hair care is as hard as finding the right foundation: it can take years and the needs change so the products need to be switched out too. Basically, a never-ending story. At least I found my end of the haircare story, for now, and I want to share it with you because it might make your search just a tiny bit easier. Before we get into it, some details on what I’m dealing with on a daily basis: naturally blonde hair, no dying has ever been done, despite that my hair is a little dry, especially the ends. Very fine hair with little volume and quite some breakage (hence the fly-aways that are killing me in photos!), no curls at all which gives my hair zero body, fullness or any kind of shape. Woohoo, go me!
My favorite brands in concern to hair care are by far Aussie and Bumble&Bumble. Aussie makes great conditioners and hair masks. I especially love the … one because it makes my hair super soft without weighing it down. Plus, if I want to, I can use it every day without it being too overpowering. So definitely check this out if you have dry and frizzy hair and haven’t tried it yet. My next go-to favorite is the Beach Wave spray by Aussie. I bought it because it was on sale but I knew Aussie products usually don’t disappoint me… By now, I use it on those bad hair days where fluffiness is a as likely as a unicorn in a Chanel boutique (sorry, that picture just came to me!). It gives my hair texture and body without glueing it together or making it feel too salty. And it smells good. Win!
A recent favorite of mine is the Paul Mitchell root lifting spray. I got the travel size because I’m naturally sceptic of new hair products and want to test them first before spending a fortune. But that stuff is really worth the money, because it simply delivers on point. It’s root-lifting, therefore gives volume which lasts all day. That’s all I ever asked for, thank you very much Paul. Another great volumizing product is the Bumble&Bumble Thickening Hairspray. I got this after falling head over heels in love with their Volumizing Shampoo (also tried this one in the travel size first 😉 ). It is by far the best volume shampoo I have ever tried and believe me, with fine hair like mine, I have tried A TON of shampoos over the past ten years. It’s the best. So when I saw the gift box with a travel size shampoo and conditioner each plus the full-size hairspray, I couldn’t help myself but getting it. The hairspray gives your hair some extra body, lasting all day and (the best thing about it) you don’t necessarily HAVE to use the shampoo for it to work well. Because I hate nothing more than having to get the whole palette of products from one range in order for them to properly show results.
The last product I use quite frequently is the Volumizing Mousse by Aussie. Another impulse purchase à la “Oh-it’s-on-sale-maybe-I-should-try-this”, haha. But let me tell you, I didn’t regret it a second. The mousse is a great alternative for when I don’t want to use the beach spray but to create more texture than the B&B spray gives me. I haven’t really mixed-and-matched the styling products, but you are more than welcome to do so and let me know how it went. I only mix up different series and brands of shampoo, conditioner and styling product. And it works pretty good for me. Hope this little review inspired you to switch up your hair routine and try some new stuff. Stay beautiful 🙂
You can get the Aussie products at your trusted drugstore or selected supermarkets. B&B can be bought at beauty shops like Sephora or Douglas in Germany or online. The Paul Mitchell spray I bought here(only available in certain stores though, not online) but also available at several hair salons or online. And of course, you can always check amazon when in doubt 😉
