Raise your hand if you have fine hair! Okay, now raise your hand if you have fine hair and crave volume, particularly if it’s from a product that doesn’t make your hair sticky, fall flat, or just plain feel dirty. Don’t worry, my hand’s right there up there with you. I have a lot of hair, but it’s fine, so if I’m not careful products can weigh my hair down and make it just look flat.
The good news? I’ve found products that give me weightless volume – and the best part? They don’t break the bank! You can find them at any drugstore near you. Now that I’ve got your attention…shall we?
I first heard of John Frieda when I came across his Frizz-Ease line, which several of my curly-haired friends love and swear by. Imagine my surprise when I found a line of his products made for us straight-haired folk: a Luxurious Volume line! The line has seven products, including shampoo, conditioner, mousse, root booster, blow-dry spray, hairspray and a dry shampoo.
What I’m talking about today: the mousse, which has made all the difference in my at-home blow-outs.
John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse contains a specialized blend of styling polymers and maximizes volume by holding style and resisting humidity. It also contains panthenol, which is known to strengthen hair as it increases volume. I’ve found that this product doesn’t weigh my hair done, but still gives me great lift at the roots that isn’t too much. In fact, it’s just enough to look flattering, and rounds out my blow-out (literally) quite perfectly.
The best part? You can find this mousse at just about any drugstore for about $6.00. Yes, that’s right: you’re one step closer to a professional blow-out for just $6.00, and you won’t even have to head to a salon. Now that’s something I can get behind!
What’s your favorite hair styling product for the office? For me, John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse has taken the cake.
