Hair styling wise, there are a couple of products I have been really loving recently, one from Pantene (which FYI has been repackaged recently, more on that in a mo) and one from Phil Smith ‘Xtreme Style’. Both products have been an absolute God-send to me, as someone with fine, flat hair.
Starting with the Phil Smith – this product smells of holidays and Summer, which is no bad thing in bleak January. When I say holidays and Summer, I mean it’s scented of coconut – the ultimate summer scent. It’s gorgeous. The texture of this is a cream, I usually use around the size of a walnut and use my hands to apply through my hair whilst it’s still wet. I find it really helps boost my hair all over, and keeps it full and looking healthy – without turning it crispy as some volumising products can do.
In combination with that I use Pantene Mousse for Volume & Body. I have been loving this and using it daily for a month or two. I use this to volumes at the root and find the combination of the two really delivers decent volume, that lasts longer than my bus ride to work…
I mentioned that Pantene has recently undergone a bit of a change – the brand has essentially repackaged all of it’s different hair care sub-brands, such as Aqua Light (which I have professed my love for before) so now the whole range can be selected based on your hair type and needs – so you can pick something that protects your colour, plus conditions thick hair all at the same time. Or volume for fine hair… all sorts of options, but the idea is that it’s easier to navigate the brand and find what works for you.
Just in case you haven’t spotted the new packaging, here’s a little look at the new Pantene post make-over.
Also, interestingly – much of the range has a new scent… so say goodbye to that familiar Pantene smell. Some love this, others miss the old smell – where do you sit?
Overall, this is my styling combination of choice – without them I would be stuck with a head full of flat, lifeless blonde hair!
