Product Reviews: Short Hair Edition

Since it's been three or so weeks since I went for the big cut, I've been experimenting with a bunch of different products. As with most ladies' hair, mine usually looks better on day two vs. freshly washed.

Here's a quick & snappy list of what I've been diggin' on my locks!

1. Frederick Fekkhai Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax: $24 for 1.7 oz.
  • After my hair is dry I'll typically grab a tiny bit of wax, warm it up in my palms and massage it through the ends of my hair. This works especially well when I add a bit of "scrunch" at the ends of my tresses.
  • Expensive? Yes. But you really don't need to use much product and the scent and finish are fantastic. Soft, pliable yet structured.

2. Suave Touchable Finish Hairspray: $2.74 for 9.4 oz.
  • Less than $3 and perfect for a quick, light hold
  • Even though I love Bumble & Bumble de mode, saving $17-$20 per bottle is most certainly worth a try

3. Kevin Murphy Hair Resort: $22 -$32 for 5.1 oz.
  • Some lovely friends at Shine Salon gave me a sample of this incredible gel-like product.
  • Smells delicious and leaves incredible texture, shine and a great curl.

4. Garnier Fructis Glossing Spray: $3.34 for 3 oz.
  • For the occasions I do straighten my hair, sometimes I'll use a bit of the Fekkhai wax and other times I'll just add a touch of this product for softness and shine.
  • Instead of spraying directly on your hair, spray a very small amount on your hands so you can control the distribution.

That's what I've been using as of late...any great hair products that we must know about?!
