Despite being a born’n'raised East Coast girl, I LOVE me some big Texas-sized hair. Unfortunately, my hair is more fine and frizz-prone than luxurious and voluminous. I tease the bejesus out of it and add all kinds of root sprays and volumizing products, just so for a few hours I can feel a little like Mary Tyler Moore. (Nick at Nite, anyone?)
A few weeks ago I was asked to try some products by Michael O’Rourke (creator of Big Sexy Hair) and I actually said yes. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of reviews because I feel like I won’t be able to be honest if I hate the products, and I work in advertising for a living, so I try to separate that world from my little blog world. HOWEVER. I do write about a lot of beauty products as it is, and I’m sorry but anything called “Rock Your Hair” is a little tough for this girl to pass up.*
Plus they’ve got rhinestones on them. *Swoon.*
I received a large box containing a slew of products, all promising to help me achieve the sky-high-locks I crave so badly.
I figured I’d be getting some puny little sample packets, but they were bringing their A-Game, y’all.
The shampoo and conditioner were ok, but the shampoo didn’t quite lather as much as I’d like, and those bottles were actually pretty small. But THESE guys…. oh man. I am in love.
The Bombshell Big Hair Powder is my hands-down fave. You sprinkle the tiniest amount into your roots and BLAM! It’s magic. We are talking like serious volume. I will fo sho be buying this when it runs out.
The Size Matters Big Volume Root Lift is good, but I always forget to use it when my hair is still damp, so I’m not really sure what the effect would be there. But for now, I use it on dry hair when I don’t want the massive height the powder gives me and it definitely helps.
The Spray It Hard Hairspray is pretty fantastic, minus the very strong scent (which fades after a little while). I use it in the morning, pretty sparingly, and my curls hold up like champs all day. Here is a pic of my hair in the afternoon (about 6 hours after applying.)
Please excuse the frizz. Also, why does my eye look so wonky?
And as a girl who has dyed her hair pretty much every color of the rainbow, I love me a spray-on leave-in conditioner. This Miracle stuff is nice, love the smell, but haven’t noticed a ton of extra moisture. But I will definitely use the entire bottle.
So overall, I was actually really impressed with this product line! Like I said, if you are someone who wants some added oomph to your hair, I cannot recommend the Bombshell Hair Powder enough. Also the Hairspray is pretttaaay good. The rest are all worth giving a try.
*I was given these products to try and review complimentary, but these opinions are 100% my own.
What are some of your favorite volumizing products?
