Good morning ladies! Happy Hump Day!! This week is just zooming by, but somehow I am staying on course and keeping organized. Finally! I had a few emails and messages lately from women asking me how I get fullness in my hair, so I thought I would share.
I wash my hair about 2-3 times a week, usually, about twice, this actually helps retain your natural oils in your hair. This will help keep your hair from breaking off and it actually helps prevent split ends. I also am a stickler about taking Biotin for my hair. I get mine from Amazon, VitaFusion Biotin Gummies 5000mcg, I don’t really care for pills so I get the gummies.
Another product that really helped with keeping my ends from breaking is Redken Diamond Oil. I apply this to my ends when I wash it. I only apply it to my ends, but you can use it all over if desired. It helps reduce split ends and trust me, it works! It’s actually called Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry and you apply it before you dry your hair. It’s a style enhancing blow-dry oil applied to hair before heat treatment to reduce blow-dry time and prevent hair breakage.
Benefits of Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry
- Ultra-lightweight and airy
- Heat protectant
- Reduces blow dry time
- Boosts your blow dry with heat-responsive silicones
- First Heat-Responsive Oil Technology
- Performance is optimized with heat for optimal reflection and maximum shine
I also have found that if I use a root booster, I have more volume around the crown of my head. I section my hair off where I want the lift and spray Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus Humidity Resistant Volumizing Spray Mousse. After I work that in, I blowdry my hair with my head flipped down. I lift the roots on top of my head with a comb and dry the roots all around the crown area of my head. This gives your roots a boost of volume. Always dry your hair, if you want volume, the opposite way it grows or lays.
Once I have dried my hair then I start the curling process and for some reason, I LOVE curling my hair. It takes me about 10 minutes to curl it and I always curl my hair for loose waves. Watch the video below and you will see how I turn the barrel of my wand (horizontal) to give me volume at the roots and loose waves.
Easy Loose Beach Waves with Volume
Once I’m done, I tousle my curls at the roots just a bit. Fix my side bangs the way I want them and spray with Kenra Volume Spray 25. FYI – that’s the best holding hairspray EVER!!!! I’ve been using it for about 15 years and I haven’t found anything that even compares to it. And girls, I tried a lot of hairsprays out as a hairdresser not to mention all the freebies I get to review. Kenra is the BEST!
I hope this post gives you some ideas of different things you can do to get more volume in your hair and waves if you are looking to wave it up some! This technique can be used on chin length hair to very long hair. My hair is about to the center of my back and the curls hold all day! For second day curls, I brush it out and redo my curls around the crown of my head and my face. I have found that if I curl my hair, that night I will twist my hair until I can put it in a low bun and pin it to go to bed. The next morning I still have curls so all I need to fix is the top part.
As a little extra tidbit today, I’m going to show you my very own before and afters with the Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex I have been using for the past 4 weeks. I have had under eye puffiness since I was in my early 30’s. Partly due to allergies, being a tired mom and some from my good ole dad! Check out these before and after pics. The first picture I had some old eyeliner on only (sorry- you’re looking at the really rough me ha!), the second picture I had full makeup on and had great lighting. The 3rd picture I took in my kitchen today with just regular sunlight and minimal everyday makeup on.
Right now Rodan + Fields is offering a Limited Offer for the holidays and one of them is, theShine Bright Set that includes this product along with the Radiant Defense that I use as my foundation. I will never go back to full coverage again! And you also get a branded R+F compact mirror that is sparkly and too cute! Of course, this has to be in my hands – I love some bling! I’m just scared that Brooklyn is going to try and get it from me. She loves anything “spark-a-ly” (her exact words as a 4-year-old). My heart just skipped a beat lol!! I love that little grandbaby!!
As always, see you beauties tomorrow on the blog! Have a great Hump Day, stay warm and stay safe!! Please feel free to leave a comment if you have tried any products that are GREAT! I love sharing with other women!!
