You guys might know that my hair is naturally frizzy and curly – I feel like I’ve talked about it a lot. Great for styling, but not great to wear “natural” if ya know what I mean. As a kid, I was always jealous of my friends who had stick straight and SMOOTH hair. That was never me, not even as a 5 year old kid. Always HUGE hair.
This kind of texture can make it difficult to get that bouncy, textured, and just light and airy look. I hope you know what I’m talking about…?
I’m not going to lie…this look takes work and it takes products.
These are four products that I use almost every single time I style my hair.
The first is OUAI’s MEDIUM HOLD HAIRSPRAY. So good. Not only does it smell like Hawaii, it’s so light and does not make the hair crunchy. Noelle, my go-to hair gal taught me an amazing trick with hairspray: spray it on pieces of hair before your curl them. That way, the curl will hold AND you won’t be left with helmet head AFTER you style your hair. This tip is a game changer and you have to give it a try.
For the textured look, my go-to lately has been the ORIBE MATTE WAVES. Yes, I also use the Dry Texturizing Spray that Oribe is so famous for and I love it. However Matte Waves is so amazing for thicker hair and really getting that beachy, textured look. A little goes a long way.
When I was introduced to EXPENSIVE from IGK I feel in love immediately. For us girls with coarse hair, it can tend to look lackluster. I add shine to my hair every single day by mixing EXPENSIVE with OUAI HAIR OIL and it is bomb.
I also love to use the HAIR OIL on its own right after I wash my hair, while it’s wet. It adds a layer of heat protection and makes your hair super smooth.
What is your holy grail hair product?
