As I was gathering my favourite beauty products from the month of August, I unintentionally picked up solely hair products. Since my hair has been growing (FINALLY!), these products have been giving my locks volume, texture and I can actually style it into tousled summer beach waves instead of a frizzed, damaged mess (happens to the best of us) and have these beauties to thank.
1. HEAD & SHOULDERS DRY SCALP CARE
I have very fine hair, which can get flat and dirty in a matter of a few hours. If I’m not jumping around in mud or walking down King St. (referring to the amount of dust that comes out from the construction sites in the morning), this shampoo keeps my hair clean and soft for a solid couple days.
2. INFINITI NANO SILVER BY CONAIR
I take my showers late at night, probably 15 minutes before I go to bed. My mother has told me time and time again to not to go bed with wet hair or else it will “mush my brain up.” As a result, I feel obligated to dry my hair before I hit the hay and this dryer is gentle/gives volume in a matter of minutes/the heat doesn’t burn my head.
3. SALLY HERSHBERGER WAVE SPRAY
My hair smells like coconut heaven after I spray this formula vigorously throughout my hair. The smell lingers the entire day, and it’s the perfect summer scent that will help hold tousled beach waves I often envy on models in magazines.
4. MISE EN SCÈNE CURLING ESSENCE 2X
Another one of my favourite Korean beauty products (I just can’t seem to get enough). I apply this gel-like product on wet hair after I shower, and I scrunch it until I get a natural wave going. It smells clean and fresh and works as a great base for those natural-looking waves.
5. KEVIN MURPHY BEACH TEXTURISER
This is my secret hair ingredient. This texturiser smells like a coconut island dream (when paired with Sally Hershberger wave spray, it’s a coconut party I am always thrilled to be invited to). Once I finish blow drying, I scrunch the oil-free formula into my hair for added texture, which I need since I have very fine hair and this will give the illusion of having more hair than I actually have.
