Confession time: I hate my hair. My hair has thick body but is a little thin on top. I usually have minimal frizz and some natural curl. It sounds like perfect hair and I used to love it, but I recently got a haircut that was way too short. Since then, I don’t know what to do with it. I appreciate that everyone tells me they like it, but I don’t and so I’m just trying to bide my time until it grows out enough for me to put it in a bun or even a pony-tail. In the meantime I’ve bought a straightener and tried to figure out a quick and easy way to fix my hair. After all, isn’t short hair supposed to be low maintenance? To try and tackle my mischievous hair I decided to try UNITE Hair Care’s products to see if they could help me love my new ‘do.
When I see mousse I remember the time when my sister would spend an ungodly amount of time scrunching her hair to make it look like she spent zero time on it. Thankfully this stuff is NOT the same. This foam is meant to give your hair body for a slightly tousled look. You can put it on wet and let it air dry or blow dry/diffuse it. Not to mention it smells AMAZING and didn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy or like it had a ton of product. I let my hair air dry and it didn’t even make it frizzy like most products. With argan oil, added thermal and UV protection, this mousse will keep your hair healthy and lifted with lasting shine, even on your longest days.
The first thing I do when I get a product I’m not sure what to do with is play with it. Yeah I could read about it, but where’s the fun in that? So after I put in the mousse I sprayed some of this Tricky Spray, and it made my tousled look more movable. This is NOT the same as hairspray, so make sure you use it sparingly otherwise you will feel like there is glue in your hair. (I did that one early morning and while I looked great I really wanted a shower). Like the Elevate Mousse this Tricky Spray also has thermal protection to last through the long summer days.
If you’ve ever read anything I’ve written you probably already know I love the beach. So in my time away from the beach I have tried to replicate that carefree tousled, “I just woke up like this” look that comes from the salt in the air combined with a little humidity. I’ve tried a lot in my life, but this one has edged all the others out. You know the dreaded crunchy feeling after trying a new beach spray? Well this does NOT have it, and it’s amazing. No need to worry about getting out your blow dryer either, just spray on and scrunch with your hands for the look you want. Be sure to spray your roots for added lift and volume for your look.
