3 Products To Take Your Hair From Flat To BIG

Mousse: TRESemm? Perfectly (un)Done Sea Foam

While mousse sounds so quaint and reminds us of our mother’s dressing table, it’s making a comeback, like all 1980s relics. TRESemm? has a newish range out, Perfectly (un)Done, which is all about evoking natural-looking volume. The sea kelp ingredients encourage waves and the ‘sea foam? is our stand-out choice from the range. Scrunch it into sections of damp hair and then go for it with a hair-dryer. €7.99,


Shampoo: Voya’s Silky By Nature Shampoo

While not a volume-boosting-on-the-label product, Voya’s Silky By Nature shampoo has some major healthy hair boosting properties. That’s because seaweed, which Voya pack into all their award-winning products, is magical. The plant itself is recommended by nutritionists to help with hair growth, but if you can’t source a batch to add to your dinner, then using a supercharged shampoo like this can only but help. We noticed that the texture of hair improved after the first wash and extended use gave our mid-length lob lustre and confidence. The perfect bathroom shelf addition if you’ve been feeling a bit limp of late. It also lathers really well, and the extracts of spearmint and rosemary will infuse all that bottled calmness into your hair routine, €22,


Gel: K?rastase Mat?rialiste Spray

If your ultimate life goal after health insurance is a choppy bob, then you need to invest in K?rastase Mat?rialiste. This thickening gel spray makes your hair immediately fuller and can be left in to dry if you don’t want to over-process with various heat setting. We genuinely felt like Kristen Stewart of late when we tried this and would definitely make it a regular salon purchase, €23, usually available in salons, including Peter Mark and Style Club.
