The Hair Products You Need -- And How to Use Them
What You Need
Gels, pomades, mousse, sprays, blow dryers, flat irons, hair bands, clips, brushes, and on and on and on...will it ever stop? The variety and quantity of hair products and accessories on the market is mind-boggling, not to mention time-consuming!
A great haircut is key in order to get the look you want, so you really can swipe your bathroom counter clear except for a few must-have essentials. Read on to see what you should keep on hand:
You've Got: Thin, fine hair You Want: Thick, full hair You Need: Volumizing mousse How You Use It: While your hair is still damp, flip your head upside down, and rub the mousse throughout your hair from the roots to the ends. To evenly distribute the mousse, comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Blow-dry your hair with head upside down for added fullness.
You've Got: Straight or wavy hair You Want: Curly hair You Need: Curlers, hair spray, and volumizing mousse How You Use It: While your hair is slightly damp, set small sections using curlers like my "Candy Wrappers." The smaller the sections you create, the more volume you will get. Once your hair is dry, spray hairspray on each curl and at the roots for added lift.
