10 HAIR PRODUCTS I LOVE FOR VOLUME AND SHINE

Hair products I use for volume and shine

 

I’ve tried and tested tons of products over the last year to help with breaking and damage to my hair, and today I’m sharing TEN of my favorites with you. These hair products have really helped nourish the ends of my hair, help my hair grow faster, and leave my hair silky, shiny, and healthy!

MY HAIR TYPE:

I have naturally wavy hair that is on the dry side from coloring, so it’s been really hard for me to find the best way to air dry my hair. Air drying helps keep my hair from being dry and brittle, but without the right products my hair is huge and out of control. I get asked a lot about how I get so much volume in my hair…but the truth is, I’m constantly adding product to tame the volume. But dry shampoo on the roots is my #1 tip for getting more volume at the roots!

 

IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE SAME KIND OF HAIR AS ME:

If you have more oily hair you will want to cut down on how many oils you use in my hair…but I use a ton on the ends of my hair to keep my hair from drying and breaking. In my roundup I’m also including the blonde products that give me the best results for maintaining my blonde without becoming orange and brassy.

 

THE HAIR CURLING IRON I USE:

I get asked a lot what I use to curl my hair and I use this Gold Marcel Iron in the 1″ barrel. I’ll post a video of how I use it over on my instagram. I’ve been using this particular curling iron since I was 12 and I always reach for this one when I need good curls in a hurry. It’s the best and a great price point!

 

MY 10 HOLY GRAIL HAIR PRODUCTS:

1. KERASTASE ELIXIR OIL EXTREME SERUM


Holy grail, hands down, get it. I apply so much of this serum to my hair it’s a bit ridiculous. A little goes a long way, but with as dry as my ends are, my hair just drinks this elixir up. I apply a pump to my whole head when my hair is wet, then to the ends when it is dry. I also have been applying it to the ends of my hair daily to keep my hair from breaking and I really feel like this has helped my hair in the front of my head grow. Finally! My hair is glossy and shiny and healthy. I’m almost out of my first bottle and I’ll be ordered a second bottle asap.

 

 

2. KERASTASE NUTRITIVE MASK FOR DRY THICK HAIR HAIR


Do we see a brand preference going on here? There is a reason. Kerastase products work. I got a second bottle of this mask because mine is almost out. I only wash my hair once a week, and I use this as my conditioner. A little goes a long way and it starts working instantly. It’s incredible how soft and shiny my hair is after this mask. I feel like you can go cheaper on a shampoo…but this mask is worth the splurge. They also have this mask for thin hair.

 

3. GARNIER SURFER HAIR PUTTY


One of my favorite drugstore hair products. Garrett first started using this putty on his hair years ago, and I’ve slowly taken over his bottle, so now we each have our own. This texture is so good and it’s under $10. Creamy, not sticky, but it acts like a texturising spray or salt spray when I run it through my hair. I add this to the ends of my hair after curling for a slightly messy/beachy look.

 

 

4. KERASTASE BLOW DRY PRIMER FOR DRY HAIR


I use this primer on damp hair whether I’m blow drying or not. It protects my hair from any heat so I apply it to the ends before I curl my hair. I’ve seen less heat damage from using this primer.

 

 

5. KERASTASE BLONDE ABSOLU ANTI-BRASS PURPLE MASK


Best purple hair product I’ve ever tried. It tames any brassy color in my hair in minutes. Be extra cautious with this mask and only leave it on for a few minutes. The lighter your hair, the faster it works. My blonde is fresh and a bit icy after using this mask. I only use it about once every few weeks to keep my blonde color exactly the way I want it.

 

 

6. AWAPUHI STYLING TREATMENT OIL


A good alternative to the elixir oil (but still not as good). Let’s be honest, I use both. I add this oil to the front of my hair on day 3 & 4 to keep it from getting too dry and frizzy.

 

 

7. BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO


One of my very favorite dry shampoos, the Blush scent is my favorite (smells like flowers). A little goes a long way, so spray with caution. Very great for adding volume to the roots. I spray this on my roots from day one and it helps my hair last a full week in between washings.

 

8. HEAD & SHOULDERS CLINICAL SOLUTIONS SHAMPOO


I shampoo just my scalp with this shampoo. Because my hair is so dry I have a very dry scalp. I did a sponsored post on this shampoo years ago and have used it ever since. It helps keep my scalp from getting dry and flaky. I also think it’s helped with my hair growth because it’s given me a healthier scalp.

 

9. BLONDE ABSOLU HEAT PROTECTING SERUM


I double up on the heat protectant because my hair gets so dry. This serum has calming edelweiss that softens and calms my hair.

 

10.PHYTOMER HAIR & BODY OIL


This oil is incredibly. It’s a dry oil, so it is very lightweight. I spray this on my face at night over my moisturizer and on my hands too, so it’s really versatile. Again, I use this to hydrate the ends of my hair. I get the best use out of it for my hair when I spray it on my hands, rub my hands together, and lightly run my hands through the ends of my hair. A little goes a long way. This bottle has lasted me well over a year and I’m halfway through it.
