My Go-To Volumising Hair Products

My hair is extremely boring and flat most of the time, so I went on a hunt for some new haircare products that would give my hair that little bit more 'oomph'! I have managed to come up with 4 products that have satisfied my lifeless hairs voluminous needs, hooray!

To begin with I wanted a kick-ass shampoo and conditioner duo that would protect my hair from nasties, but still give it the body it deserves. For this, I have decided to go with the Living Proof Full Shampoo & Conditioner (you can get this from MECCA Cosmetics for $39 each - worth it trust me). 

Free from sulphates, the shampoo is 'gently clarifying', gives my hair some much needed body and is safe for coloured hair (woooo!). The conditioner also gives my hair a bit of body, helps to de-tangle my hair and gives it that added bit of shine, without giving it that 'too clean' feel.

I pair my shampoo and conditioner duo with Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray (also sold at Mecca - $50). This miracle-in-a-convenient-spray bottle, gives my hair that 'messy but clean' look that I tend to get after not washing my hair for a day or two, which I LOVE. It also acts as a heat protectant so I can style my hair as needed without damaging it too much. Once my hair is damp after a shower, I'll give my hair a generous spray and a bit of a blow dry and VOILA! Voluminous hair!

I also like to rub some Toni & Guy Texturising Glue between my fingers, rub it through my hair to make it a little messy and give my roots some volume. However, do go easy with the glue, it can be easy to make it look like you've been lost in the woods for a few days.

As a final touch, I spray a little more of the Thickening Spay over my hair to set it and we are now finito burrito ladies (...and potentially gentleman) 

Let me know if you have any suggestions for really good thickening hair products, I'm always on the lookout!

I've also made a video about these hari products which you can watch by clicking the video below :)
