Hailey's Hair Favorites

Piggybacking on last week's hair theme, I thought I would share with you some of my personal faves. Regardless if my hair is long or short, sleek or messy, I have a few hair products that if discontinued tomorrow I would mourn their loss quite heavily.

KMS Hair Play Dry Wax - Found in most beauty supply stores or online, this product acts like hairspray but allows you to play with it until you get the style right. It gives your hair a textured, almost dirty feeling without weighing your hair down or looking wet. I discovered this product when my hair was short. I would spray a small amount then tease it for that messy look. Now that my hair is longer, I will bat comb my hair in the crown then spray to give it added volume. I haven't found another product similar so I'm praying this never gets discontinued. $10-15 for a 4.7 oz. bottle.
KMS Colorvitality Blonde Shampoo - I've been using "purple" shampoo for years. The UV filters and optical brightener in this lavender colored shampoo illuminates my blonde locks and fights yellowing better than any other color-enhancing shampoo I've ever used. You have to be careful not to use it everyday though. It can give your hair a silver shine if used too much. You can find in most any beauty supply store or online for $13-32 for either a 10.1 oz or 25.3 oz bottle.
Tresemme 24 hour Body Root Boost Spray - As "In Style" magazines '2010 Volumizer' winner, this is a must buy for sexy hair. Without a volumizing boost to my roots, my hair is as limp and lifeless as they come. While my hair is damp, I spray the Root Boost directly onto my hair, roots to tip, then blow dry for maximum volume. I prefer the Root Boost spray over gel and mouse because it's light, there is no build up, it's not sticky, and doesn't weigh down my hair. For best results, flip your hair upside-down and dry on high heat. $4 for an 8 oz. bottle at Target.

Short Sexy Hair's Frenzy Bulked Up Texture Paste - An awesome product for both men & women. Both my husband and I love the way Frenzy adds that finishing touch. This is a must have product to bring texture and bulk to any short hairstyle. It bonds to your hair to add volume and fullness. It's easy to work through your fingers and it won't leave your hair feeling greasy. It provides a medium to firm hold. It also helps tame those pesky fly-aways. You are guaranteed to find it at Planet Beauty stores or online. Target now carries the Short Sexy Hair line but I have yet to see Frenzy on the shelf. Prices vary depending on store but it will usually run you about $16.00 for a 7 oz. container.
