Summer Hair 2017- Volume Shine and Texture

header sun blue

Summer Hair can be easy if you have the right products and hair tools. I’ve been loving my short hair and it is fun to play around with and style but I miss my long hair too.  I’m growing it back but until then I love playing and having fun with it. I’ve discovered a few lovely products that work really amazing with my short hair and I’m excited to share them with you.


I will start by saying that I wash my hair once or two times a week. In-between washes I use *Batiste dry shampoo Plus Heavenly Volume. Batiste is super fast and easy to use. Gives my hair volume and freshness. I love it because I don’t have time to wash my hair everyday so Batiste dry shampoo really helps with keeping my hair looking nice, fresh and it keeps the grease away.

Transforming hair since the ’70s, the award-winning Batiste Dry Shampoo is proudly made in the UK and is rooted in London Fashion styling. As the beauty insider’s secret weapon, Batiste Dry Shampoo works to instantly revive oily hair, leaving it looking and smelling clean and fresh. -Batiste

This dry shampoo formula plus volume (silica) refreshes hair and adds more volume than normal dry shampoo. Medium strength volumizer with no stiffness or stickiness. It is innovative starch-based ‘no water required’ formulation contains rice starch powder. Small particles allow for better absorption of excess oil, helping to eliminate it at the roots. Available in a 200ml can. The scent has top notes of bergamot, mandarine and lemon. The middle notes are white peach, freesia and jasmine. The bottom notes are tonka bean, vanilla bean, musk and cedar.

It is super easy to use. I shake it vigorously before using it. I keep the nozzle about 30 cm from my head, section my hair and pray it into the roots working all over my head for maximum effect. I then Massage thoroughly with fingertips to ensure roots are fully covered and colour blends. I gently brush through hair from roots to ends to remove excess residue.

TOP TIP: Turn hair upside down and pray into the root for even bigger volume. -Batiste

Batiste is paraben and sulphate free, vegan friendly and not tested on animals. It is available at retailers across Canada and is SRP: $9.99


Next I have my favourite hair mask followed by favourite shampoo & conditioner. I love using the hair mask Marilyn by Lush. Super amazing and really makes my hair feel soft and look so nice and shinny.


Lately I’ve been using and loving my Garnier Fructis GROW STRONG 2 in 1 fortifying shampoo and conditioner. It has apple extract and ceramide and it is also Paraben-Free. I love the way it cleans my hair and it makes my hair feel stronger, smooth and silky. 2

After the shower I like to spray L’OREAL Professionel Paris VOLUMETRY Intra-Cylane + Slicylic Acid. This gives a lot of volume to my hair and I love it. I apply this while my hair is wet at the roots.


I proceed by using a light spray of heat protector before blow drying. I love using TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Protection. I spray the Heat protection all over my hair.  I then use my favourite hair dryer the *infinity pro CONAIR 3Q. It is quick, quiet and amazing quality! The *infinity pro CONAIR hair dryer is fantastic! My prior blow dryer was a CONAIR also but the features were outdated so I’m SO happy to receive a new one with amazing new features that makes drying my hair fast and easy.

It has ionic technology, titanium ceramic technology, patent pending noise reduction technology, removable filter, locking true cold shot button, 3 heat/2 speed settings for custom styling, heavy gauge, professional quality line cord for extra durability and concentrator attachment for pinpointing styling also a diffuser attachment and a filter cleaning brush.
