The bigger the hair, the closer to God?
First off, BRRRRRRR!!! This weather today was nasty! Hope everyone was able to stay inside and cozy up with their loved ones having some hot cocoa/coffee in their jammies all day long! Secondly, I don’t know about you, but I used to LIVE by the words above! I love me some big ol’ Dolly Parton hair haha. I will tease and tease and then tease some more (thank you P-Burg high school girls). This mama loves good volume, high shine and texture! Hair is one of those things that is so fun to mess with and change up. You can go light, dark, straight, curly, top-knot, braids, you name it. Today I am sharing my favorite must-have hair products that will help you achieve all of those styles and more.
Now I have used A TON of hair product in my lifetime and these are by far my favorite! I also love finding new product that beats out my old ones, so I would love to hear your favorites too! Hope you enjoy!!

1. Shampoo & Conditioner.
I love the Biolage brand, all of their products are truly great! This shampoo and conditioner duo is perfect for dry, brittle, dull and lifeless hair. It is also great of color-treated and over processed hair like mine! I see a huge difference when I use this stuff. It’s pricey, yes, but I’ve seriously never found a shampoo or conditioner that works better on my hair.

2. Sea Salt Texturizing Spray.
Surprisingly, my hair is actually naturally wavy. So sometimes I like to rock those beach- waves! These two products create volume, messy texture and give my hair that extra pizzazz it needs! I can’t speak highly enough of these two sea salt sprays. By far my favorite out of all the ones I’ve used!

3. Purple Shampoo.
With coloring my hair, it can turn brassy really quick! Now honestly, you can’t go wrong with most purple shampoos out there, but this one is THE BEST! I use it once a week and it enhances my blonde shades & reduces the brassy tones in my hair. Sometimes it can transform my hair to make it look like I just got it colored. Extra Win!!

4. Leave-In Conditioner/Mask.
This deeeep conditioner is literally a miracle worker. I have been using it for years and it helped me to bring my hair back to life and continues to help keep it moisturized and looking completely healthy at all times. While showering, I let it sit in my hair for about 5 minutes before rinsing, mainly while I am shaving my legs, washing my face, ect.
Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Conditioning Balm for Dry Hair
I also have to throw this “miracle” product in. It offers 10 different benefits — all of which are awesome and we need. From protection, to conditioning, to shine. All around this product just screams “let me help you, poor hair!”
It’s a 10Miracle Leave-In Product
5. Dry Shampoo.
Dry shampoo is a girls best friend! I am a huge fan of 4, 5 & 6 day hair (oops) and dry shampoo is key for this! Just spritz it on your roots and in the nape of your neck for a quick refresher. I cannot live without this product, I mean ask anyone that knows me, I don’t wash my hair for DAYS. ON. END. Another trick I use when I am out of my dry shampoo in a pinch, Baby Powder. It works wonders!!
6. Heat Protectant Spray.
Yea, I’ve pretty much fried my hair before. Literally. It felt like a brillo pad and made ugly crunchy noises, so now I don’t go without using a heat protectant spray. I typically use this product each time I wash my hair. I love that it protects your hair and adds shine and now I haven’t fried my hair since the big mistake!
HSI PROFESSIONAL Argan Oil Heat Protector
Kenra hairspray has always been my go to hairspray. I have the Medium Hold, Super Hold and Ultra Freeze. I like to have all three because sometimes I like my hair to move and sometimes in a Kansas wind storm I need that shit to stay put!! It’s heaven in a bottle. I love that you can use it as a finishing spray or spray the roots and under layers of hair for more volume.

8. Root Pump.
Another amazing product and perfect for ladies looking for a little extra help in the volume department. It lifts your hair at the roots and helps create volume that lasts throughout the day. It also makes it so much easier to style or to add a little lift with a teaser comb.

9. Curling Wand.
I have been in love with my curling wand set forever! My hubby got it for me for Christmas 3 years ago, and it still looks brand new. I use the 1″ straight barrel on my hair pretty much all the time and the curls last for DAYS. I love that the wands are interchangeable so I can do different curls in my hair for any occasion. Just a warning, it does get very hot! It also doesn’t have an automatic shut-off, so be careful!
10. Tease Comb.
Yes, any comb or pick will really get the job done, but my mom found this comb and I am obsessed! It has extra rows of teeth which gives your hair some serious extra oomph. I love this little comb! Do yourself a favor and get you one.
Hair Tamer Black Double Rack Tail Comb
11. Volume Powder/Texture Spray.
This is usually a product I use on day two, three and four hair in pretty much the same way as the dry texture spray. Put it on the roots and tease it to Jesus. These two do and I am in amazement at the INSTANT volume boost you get from sprinkling them on your roots and rubbing it in.
This little gem is fan-freaking-tastic. Whenever I need to add some texture to my hair to be able to style it right after a wash a blow dry (which is always because thin & lifeless, I tell ya) I reach for this. It makes me have bigger, better, full-on glamorous hair. It builds incredible volume and gives my hair crazy texture. A little on the pricey side, but worth every penny!
There you have it, all of the best hair products that I love! Here’s to pumping up the volume & keeping our heels, hair & standards high! Have a great day!
