After I dyed my hair all black I feel less stress about the ends looking dry. I do, however, tend to prefer my hair to have volume in the roots. I admit I sometimes go around with a bit of a helmet looking 'do on my head and other days it's just flat as can be. I've never been able to be truly dedicated to my hair when it comes to styling but when I make an effort with the roots, these three products are what I use.
Baptiste Dry Shampoo - original. Possibly the most hyped dry shampoo I've ever heard of. For a long time I heard about this product and I just couldn't care less. Dry shampoo is dry shampoo, who even makes demands when it comes to this stuff? But after changing my hair routine from washing it every second day to every three or fourth, this stuff is what keeps me from becoming a complete grease ball. That, and actually trying horrible cheap brands. Who knew you go wrong with this stuff? This is the most neutrally fragranced and light one I've tried so far. Allows me to skip a wash (sometimes two!!) and give a bit of volume. I get the hype now, guys!
L'Oréal Studio Line Volume texturizing spray. I got this at a blogger event (hint the sticker) a long time ago but only got around to use it now and I find that it does a pretty good job at what it claims to do. I spray it the roots, mostly in my bangs, let it sit for a few seconds and then 'hug it' and comb it lightly afterwards to go from awkward emo fringe to a bit more of that 'bedhead but also made an effort' kinda thing.
Schwartzkopf taft Ultra Pure Mousse. I go back and fourth with mousse. It's either a mess or a success. I usually forget that it exists, so I usually use this for a period of time. Mostly because I have the whole 'go longer without washing my hair' thing going on, this seems a bit contradictory most of the time. But I do like the result it gives when you apply it in damp hair and do a light blow-dry. This one is supposed to be without silicons, perfumes and residues but still give strong hold. Which is always a plus! I've recently started using this stuff every time I've washed my hair and I never regret it. I got from just having a haircut to having an actual hair 'do.
