I am always on the hunt for new hair products that help my mane look – and more importantly, feel – like a million bucks. Recently, I have discovered a host of great products, some by popular brands and others that are equally great but from lesser known brands. As someone who knows the struggle of finding great haircare products, I thought I would share my recent finds with you, in the hopes that they will work as well for you as they did for me!
The first brand I want to talk about is Sexy Hair – a very apt name because that’s exactly how your hair looks and feels after you’ve used their products. They are known for their hairspray, which comes in the iconic red can (in fact, they sell a can of hairspray every 4 seconds!) but have many more products beyond that.
I’m a fan of their Weatherproof Humidity Resistant Spray from the Big Sexy Hair product line, which is the ultimate weatherproof spray that works all year round. I love that it shields that hair against humidity and heat, and keeps styles in place for longer than normal without that awful crispy feeling that many sprays have. It’s such a saviour during the summertime! I also love the So You Want It All Leave-In Treatment from the Healthy Sexy Hair line, which (as the name suggests) does everything you want it to and more. From detangling messy hair to nourishing, soothing and moisturising damaged hair, while adding shine and elasticity to your tresses, this is definitely a must-have product in your hair care arsenal. Finally, the Support Me 450° Heat Protection Setting Hairspray from the Hot Sexy Hair collection is essential for anyone who uses heat on their hair. Not only does it protect your locks from being damaged by the heat; it also helps in holding curls and other styles for a longer duration of time. As you can tell, I am so happy about my discovery of this brand, and I can’t wait to try more products from their many, many lines.
Now, Toni & Guy is an oldie but a goodie when it comes to haircare brands. I recently tried out their Style Fix Waver, which is a professional styling tool that is perfectly sized – it can fit into your handbag! You can create many styles with this – my personal favourite is the big, beachy waves. One thing I absolutely love about this product is that my hair feels shiny and healthy after using it, and never has any unwanted frizz. As with all heat style tools, I would recommend using a heat protection product, like the one mentioned above, for extra protection.
Another great find for creating everything from beachy waves to big curls is the Professional 24k Gold Curl Bar 32mm by Hot Tools. Rest assured that the unique design is not just for the heck of it – the designs ensure that this tool is very ergonomic and easier to hold and use than most traditional curling tools. Along with that, it comes with many useful features, including temperature controls to ensure that your hair does not burn, and curl timers that you can set in advance to achieve the exact type of curl that you are looking for.
Finally, I’m absolutely loving the 3 Minute Miracle Line by The Aussie. As the name suggests, this product line is dedicated to providing your hair with the TLC that it needs – in 3 minutes, flat! That makes it perfect for busy girls on the go who want their hair to look great, but don’t have hours to spend in salons. These deep conditioning treatments will transform your hair – and trust me, the results last. The best part is that there is a wide range of products to choose from – Moisture, Colour Matte, Shine, Nourish, Frizz Fixer and Beach Mate, to name a few – so you can pick the one that suits your haircare needs the most. What more does a girl need?
