I take my hair very seriously. In fact, I even have a haircare routine. I am constantly on the lookout for the next great thing in haircare… or even just a product that will magically get rid of my split ends and make my hair voluminous and beautiful.
Currently, my routine (changes based on whether my hair is freshly washed or not) includes my personalized Function of Beauty shampoo and conditioner, Kenra Volume Mousse, Briogeo Volumizer Spray, Redken Fashion Work 12 Hairspray, Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish, and Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo.

As I have fine hair that is prone to greasiness, I typically shampoo and condition my hair every other day and use a deep conditioner about once a week. After I wash my hair, I use a wide-tooth comb to brush through my hair while it’s still wet before running about two tablespoons of mousse through my roots and spraying my roots a few times with my volumizer spray. I then let my hair air dry until it is about 80% dry, at which time I use my T3 hairdryer to finish drying my hair. Once my hair is completely dry, I style it (I’ve been loving this set from NuMe lately!) and then – if necessary – I add a little more volume using my thickening spray before finishing my look off with hairspray.
On days when I don’t wash my hair (or when I wash it at night only to discover that my hair needs a little “oomph” in the morning), I start off my haircare routine by spraying dry shampoo all over my head. I’ve found that the dry shampoo is most effective when you separate your hair into vertical sections and spray the dry shampoo along the lines of separation. After I dry shampoo, I typically style my hair, spray it with thickening spray, set the look with hairspray, and then, if necessary, add some more dry shampoo.
Because I believe in big hair.
My haircare routine actually changed to include a new shampoo and conditioner a few weeks ago when Function of Beauty reached out to me about sending me a personalized shampoo and conditioner set. Honestly, I had such a fun time creating my own unique haircare products. In case you’re wondering how Function of Beauty works, in the portal, I specified that I have wavy and fine hair with a scalp moisture level of “normal”. I said that my hair concerns were split ends, the length, color protection, thermal protection, and volume (or, in my case, lack thereof). I chose the fresh “cucumber mint” scent as the fragrance for my products and within days I had a package waiting on my doorstep.
Today, I’ve teamed up with Function of Beauty to bring two (!!!) lucky Glitter & Spice readers their own personalized shampoo and conditioner set. Woohoo! Enter using the widget below. Good luck, y’all!
