I was on vacation, well, visiting family back in Orange County, California from our temporary home in Hawaii ( 5 more months until we move to Salt Lake City!) and my hair was flatter than flat. If you have followed me for a while or seen any of my work in salon, you know I like volume, even just a little to lift it off the roots. I feel like it always frames the face better in photos and flows much better than flat. The second dreamy product I always need is what I use after I get out of the shower on my hair to keep the blonde from getting brassy, it’s like my insurance if the purple conditioner left me hanging.
I use the Living Proof dry spray after I finish creating waves in my hair. I let the hair set for just a few minutes until the waves have cooled so I can really get in there and break them up with my fingers, and finish with this spray. For me it adds some texture (which is good, we want that to build volume) and has a light, clean fragrance.
The next product I want to share with you all that I can not live without is the Joico Brilliant Tone Violet Smoothing Foam. Like I said in the beginning of this, it’s my insurance if my purple shampoo didn’t give me the coolness I wanted for any reason ( keep in mind I am a very light blonde, ideally that is who these products work best for because… the color wheel, violet cancels yellow, not orange).
As you can see above, I already am using this bottle and it comes out as a true mousse. I apply after towel drying my hair and start where I need it the most. With product I like to build, I have never been one to say “do a pea size” or whatever because how can that be right for everyone? I would say ease into it at your own pace and add more until you have covered all areas needed. I also like to brush it through to evenly distribute and make sure I am not over doing it. Sometimes we decide we don’t like a product based off of using it the wrong way. I want you to love it as much as I do so that is why I am going over how to use it in such detail haha.
I hope these two products make life easier for you like they have for me. If these are products you already love or if you try them out let me know! Tag me on either my hair page: @gabievossler
Give these two a try and let me know how you like them in the comments!
Have a great week!
