This weekend, in my never-ending quest for full, bouncy hair, I branched out and tried a few products from brands known more for their de-volumizing capabilities. The results? Surprisingly good.
First, I washed and conditioned with Brazilian Blowout's new Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. The products smelled nice in the shower, and my hair felt noticeably fuller even when it was still wet. But as it started to air-dry (it was Sunday morning after all), my hair took on an almost stale odor -- not cute.
To help mask the smell and to add even more volume, I applied a dollop of Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse. I wanted to try Moroccanoil for a while (every beauty editor I know is obsessed with it), but I didn't think the smoothing products would work well for my baby-fine. When I discovered that this mousse is volumizing, I snagged it immediately. And I wasn't disappointed: It's got the amazing Moroccanoil scent, great ingredients, and it gave my hair a ton of body. All in all, a pretty successful road test.
