Prepare Your Hair For The Warm Days Ahead!

With spring around the corner, I am looking to turn up the volume, create beachy waves and tame my tresses. Since I live in Kansas City, I also have to worry about the coming humidity and how it affects my hair.

I have been testing the great hair products and tools below and am loving what they are doing for my hair:

Carols Daughter® Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Carols Daughter® Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Sulfate-Free Shampoo

Carols Daughter® Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Sulfate-Free Shampoo  ($12 USD 12 fl. oz., Conditioner $14 USD) — Only healthy, fortified hair can be frizz-free hair. That’s why this sulfate-free, color-safe strengthening shampoo is a must-have to reinforce damaged hair that’s prone to breakage and frizz. Made with strand-strengthening Coprah Coconut Oil, this sacred, protein-rich ingredient is blended with the Tiare Gardenia Flower, frizz-stopping Shea Butter and Moringa Seed Oil, so it not only cleanses and detangles, but restores strength for smooth, flyaway-free hair.

TIGI Bed Head Candy Fixations Collection

TIGI Bead Head has recently released their Candy Fixations collection. This is a group of styling products that have been inspired by sweets.

There are five products in this line.  In the photo above from left to right are Sugar Dust, an invisible micro-texture root powder; Glaze Haze, semi-sweet smoothing hair serum, Totally Baked, a volumizing and prepping hair meringue; Sugar Shock hair bodifying sugar spray; Mega Whip, whipped marshmallow hair texture.

I tried the following two products from the collection:

TIGI Bed Head Candy Fixations Glaze Haze ($15.95, 2oz)  – Semi-Sweet Smoothing Hair Serum. This sweet treat candy coats each strand to fight humidity, add shine, and help speed up drying time. Delicious Crème Brule scent.

What I think:  I have been using this every day — on wet and dry hair.  It instantly smooths flyaways and adds shine.  Just one or two drops is all I need for my long hair.  I live in Kansas City and in the summer I am hoping that this will help with the frizzies that come with humid heat.  It smells nice but the scent is not too strong.

TIGI Bed Head Candy Fixations Totally Baked ($15.95 USD) – Volumizing and Prepping Hair Meringue. Apply to wet hair for long-lasting weightless movement and enhanced performance of other styling products. Delicious Lemon Meringue Pie scent.

What I think:  I have used this on wet hair.  It is has a creamy texture and is not too sticky.  It does add a bit of volume and helps with the hold of my style.  I really like the lemony scent, as well.  A good primer product.

TIGI Bed Head Style Shots Epic Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

Big hair is a hot trend this Spring. How to achieve the look? Start with adding volume with TIGI Bed Head Style Shots Epic Volume Shampoo & Conditioner.

For thick, voluptuous hair, start your styling in the shower. With volume boosting shots for gravity-defying root lift and incredible body, use Epic Volume Shampoo ($15.95 USD) and Conditioner ($16.95 USD), a new volume-enhancing product combination that primes your style while you wash. The super-charged, sulfate-free shampoo provides light to moderate cleansing and improves hair’s strength while preventing colour from fading, while the nourishing conditioner provides style memory while using a volume boosting shot to explode your style from root to tip.

I find that this delicious raspberry scented shampoo and conditioner not only volumize, but seem to thicken the hair all the way down to the roots.  As with all TIGI products, this is a luxurious experience and makes hair big, healthy and shiny! Add a little root volume spray and hair will be huge!
