While browsing through all the suggestions that you all have given me for blog posts that you wanted to see more of, I noticed a trend with more hair care and styling related suggestions. With that said, I am bringing you my general round up of products that I use when it comes to my hair. Over the past couple months I have gradually cut my hair shorter and shorter and have recently started turning my hair into a bit of a unicorn-inspired shade in my attempt to ombre that into the bottom half of my hair. My hair is on the thinner and fine side of the spectrum, so adding texture and volume are some of my biggest goals when it comes to my hair. Here’s a breakdown of the current products I reach for the most when it comes to my hair. Side note: I really promise this post isn’t sponsored by Bumble and Bumble or anything like that… they just make amazing products that my hair seems to love.
Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder. I know I have expressed my love for the Batiste dry shampoos for months on end, but I needed to re-express my everlasting love for this do-it-all product. This hair powder combines the best of three different products as it is a dry shampoo, a style extender, and has volume benefits. It does not leave any residue and it super easy to work with. I have used this product on my hair when I needed to make my hair look less greasy and also within hours of washing it for the volumizing benefits. It’s a miracle product.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. Some people see this salt water styling spray more as a summer staple hair product, but I still tend to use it year round. Spraying this in my hair continues to add that texture that I love. A lot of these products help make my hair style last that extra bit longer, and for that I will keep buying them.
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Creme Contour. This is a very new product to my collection, but the Thickening range by the brand is not new to me at all. Shorter hair, pomades, and shaping hair creams seem to go together a lot these days, so I thought I would give this one a go. Using a small amount of this cream and running it through my hair to create extra thickness to my hair seems like a dream come true. I am liking it so far and will have to keep you updated on how I like it over time.
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish. I have blogged about this product before and am currently on my second container of it. This product creates the perfect amount of texture to my hair when I need that little something extra, which is pretty much always, and it helps make my hair style last a little bit longer until the next wash.
Living Proof Prime Style Extender Spray. This is another recent addition to my routine only because I have heard such amazing things about it. Most people rave about it in it’s cream formula, but I found the spray version and knew that I had to make the purchase. This is basically a wonderful style-extending hair primer that extends your hair style up to two times longer than usual. If you’ve noticed any sort of trend so far with this list of products, it is that I love making my hair styles last longer, so this is a product sent from the heavens. Also the scent of this product is heavenly!
NuMe Curl Jam Styling Set. I saw an amazing deal online for this NuMe curling wand set a while ago and was in the market for just a really good curling wand and ended up getting this whole set. This set came into my life and I have been using it ever since. Three different size curling wand options and a hair straightener. Perfect timing to replace my really old straightener from the high school days. I am able to create really long lasting curls with all three sizes of the wands and it really changes the game for me when it comes to styling my hair. My favourite time I used this was for my New Years Eve night out and loved my hair a lot that night. There is currently a 40% off sale on the website right now, so click here to look through their amazing products and hopefully something catches your eye.

Garner Fructis Style Volume Hold and Flex Body Boost Spray. No hair styling round up is complete without a hair spray. After I finish styling my hair I love to spray this through my hair to help really lock in the style that I’ve worked so hard on. This has been a favourite of mine for well over a year now. I haven’t tried very many others, but this one seems to do the trick for me.
