big and bouncy


Since I had my hair cut last month, I've been on the hunt for products to give me bouncy voluminous locks. When my hair was long it was so hard to inject bounce - it was so heavy it just hung! Now its got a new lease of life I am loving the above products. First up, I was given these Percy and Reed products for Christmas - the Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse and Volumising No Oil Oil (for fine hair). Although my hair isn't remotely fine, the oil is perfect at smoothing the ends of my hair without weighing it down. Now the mousse; I haven't used mousse since I stole my Mum's when I was about 12 and created some pretty lush crunchy curls. Thankfully, this is nothing like that! Lightweight, nourishing and not sticky at all, this really helps me build volume when blow drying. A little goes a long way too, although it's a bit more than you might pay in Boots, a small blob does the job. 

Alternately I use VO5 Plump It Up Amplifying Blow Dry Lotion instead of the mousse, which although not quite as good, does help to give some body. I have to say I'm put off by the colour and style of the packaging - to me it looks cheap and gimmicky. Is that silly of me?! Once I've styled my hair either using my straighteners to iron out any kinks or add wave, or the Babyliss Curling Wand, I keep it in place with Loreal Elnett Hairspray Very Volume (Supreme Hold). Although this smells like grannies, it is pretty good at holding my curl and volume all day. 

And finally, Loreal #TXT Volume Supersizing Spray. What a beauty. A quick spritz into the ends of my hair leaves them looking textured and plumped up, without leaving any residue or feeling heavy. I'd heard loads of good reviews of this so couldn't wait to try and have been really pleased with the results! 

What do you use to keep your locks bouncy and voluminous?
