If you’ve been reading this blog for more than a few weeks, you are aware of my constant struggle to pump up the volume in my fine, thin hair. Kérastase has a new line of products called Couture Styling with five products that are sure to add oomph without damage. I had the opportunity to try all five and have my favorites, but first let’s get a quick rundown.
Spray à Porter ($35) - a texture spray that creates the ultimate beach waves without the stickiness, and can also be used the style second day hair with sophisticated urban waves using a curling iron. I like to use this when I need to add some texture to my hair for certain styles. It’s also great in the summer for a quick n’ go wavy style.
Lift Vertige Root-Uplifting Gel ($36) - A unique gel-texture that elevates the roots without a “cardboard” feel that is just right at the crown. Roof lifters are great for fine, thin hair and I feel almost as if this one was made just for me! Like the rest of this line, it is lightweight with excellent hold. I love that this is a gel rather than a sticky spray too.
Forme Fatale Voluptuous Blow-Dry Gel ($35) - a blow dry gel with an extra-fine texture that perfectly shapes hair to give all over volume that lasts. Use to create a modern, classy bouffant. Created for blow drying, this stuff is Ah-mazing! It’s especially good for that natural tousled look. It makes my at-home blowout look as good as the salon! Score!
Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumizing Mousse ($36) – a subtle formula that envelops the fiber to thicken strands for a dose of glamorous volume all over. It builds body and volume with weighing my hair down and like the hairspray, it is still flexible. I normally use it on damp hair, but I have used it on dry hair also and it works that way too.
Laque Dentelle Micro Mist Fixing Hairspray Flexible Hold ($35) - a micro-fine diffusion that sets all hairstyles in place with frizz control and high shine. Works perfectly with heat tools too! I
love adore this hairspray! The spray is so fine that it doesn’t disperse a lot of product just in one spot which is terrific! It holds all day without feeling crunchy or hard and gives hair a nice shine. This is my new holy grail hairspray!!
