Hair trends change over time, yet every once in a while, there are iconic ones that make a comeback. Hairstyling allows you to showcase your creative side and can transform your overall look. For some people, hairstyling may seem time-consuming and intimidating, but with just the right products, tools, and a little practice, you can easily include it in your daily routine in no time!
Let’s break down the different types of hairstyling products and find out which one best suits your hair and your lifestyle!
Heat styling is one of the best ways to achieve the most gorgeous hairstyles, but this is also one of the main causes of damaged hair. Before using anything hot (and yes, that includes blow drying!) on that head of yours, apply a heat protectant first to create a protective barrier that prevents burning, drying, and damaging your hair. Remember: prevention is better than cure!
Try the Davines OI All in One Milk (₱1,195). Not only does it provide heat protection, but it also moisturizes, detangles, and adds shine and softness to your locks - all while making your hairstyle last longer. Truly an all-in-one product!
Hair gels and creams are so last decade! Styling products have come a long way since then and we thank the French for inventing the hair mousse (ICYDK, “mousse” means “foam” in French). A styling foam, commonly known as hair mousse, has a lighter consistency than gel and a bouncier finish than creams but provides twice or even thrice the volume of these other style-holding products. If you prefer shiny and smooth-looking hair over crunchy one, go for a hair mousse.
We recommend the Schwarzkopf Silhouette Super Hold Mousse (₱1,330). This product provides super hold and maximum volume without burdening your hair.
The oldest and most popular hairstyling product -- so popular that a musical/movie is even based on it! Hairsprays have been around for a very long time and are still widely used as this trusty hairstyling product provides an easy breezy and mess-free application perfect for anyone, even for beginners! Just a few sprays here and there, then you‘re all set!
What used to be known to give hard-as-a-rock finish and hard-to-remove hair product has been developed through the years to create softer finishes to mimic your natural hair -- just like the L’Oréal Professionel Elnett Hairspray (₱999), which offers long-lasting hold with a brilliant shine and soft touch.
For those new to the hairstyling scene, a texturizing product just might be your next favorite thing! Imagine a product that gives you the power to amplify your hair -- builds volume, creates movement, supports long-lasting hairstyle, and also absorbs oil. Perfect for achieving the “no styling” hairstyle!
