Last weekend I was running late to my niece’s graduation party. I didn’t have time to wash my hair as I had earlier intended. While I was at Target buying her present I came across some great products that I had to share to help with your summer hairstyles. If you’re anything like me you need to get your hair off of your neck when out and about.
I keep hearing and reading about how great dry shampoo is. I am in love with Suave shampoos and conditioners, because they are inexpensive, smell good and leave my hair soft. I came across the Suave Dry Shampoo ($3.20), and decided it was time to try. I have to tell you I never expected it to be so awesome. Not only did it take the oil right out of my bangs, it also gave my roots volume. I can tell you NO product has ever given me volume. (I have really thick hair, and a lot of it to boot. It so rarely holds curl unless I dispense an entire bottle of super hold hair spray.)
Goody Spin Pins ($6) are supposed to be the answer to ridding yourself of using a whole box of bobby pins to achieve a bun, and a french twist. Each package contains 2 pins with directions on how to use them. I stared at it for a full 5 minutes trying to decide if I wanted to buy 1 or 2 packages. Every single hair accessory that claims it can hold any hair has NEVER been able to hold mine. I decided on 1 package. Can you believe it worked? It takes a total of 3 minutes from beginning to end to make a bun.
I’m really not a lover of hair spray. I just never like the way it makes my hair feel. Sometimes to keep my bangs in place I just need a little spritz. I try them and hate them, and throw them away. I do like the Garnier Fructis Style Full Control ($3.50) because it really takes a tiny bit to hold. It dries super fast, which I like.
I find that when I wear headbands they have a tendency to slip off of my head. I don’t know if it’s an oily thing or big head thing or a too much hair thing. I actually like to wear them when my hair is in a braid. On my quest to find a headband that will stay on, I came across the Bic Bands ($10-$13) on Etsy. They really do not fall off, just like it promises. I like that she has different sizes and patterns. I even got 2 for A, her cute curly hair looks great in them.
If you haven’t checked out the Calypso line this summer at Target, it is a must see. One small part of this collection are the hair accessories. The nice thing about the accessories is that they really do exude a summer feel. I love the Wood Rose Ponytailer ($6). I know I said I don’t do ponytails, but even at the bottom of a braid it would look good.
Finding hair accessories that feel like summer, are a great way to keep your hair up and look chic.
