I am always intrigued by hair products that claim to give me massive volume and body because my natural hair is super fine, straight and limp. And my hair shafts are very smooth because I’ve never used hair dye and I rarely use hot tools – which is great for softness but not great for volume (rougher hair cuticles are much easier to style and gain lift from). I tried out some of the staple products from the ROCK YOUR HAIR line to see how they worked on my lackluster tresses.
The products I tried are (click for product page):
- Size Matters Big Volume Root Lift ($20)
- Spray It Hard Big Volume Hairspray ($22)
- Bombshell Big Hair Powder ($17)
- Rock Your Hair Leave-In Conditioner ($20)
First off, I have to say how freaking gorgeous this packaging is! These are BY FAR the most beautifully packaged hair products I’ve ever come across. There are little crystals glued to every bottle and the pink leopard print is genius for a “big” hair line. This line was created by Michael O’Rourke who also created the Big Sexy Hair line.
How I use these products in my hair routine:
The first product I use is the Leave-In Conditioner spray on my towel-dried hair. This stuff is an amazing detangler. My hair is pretty long so it tangles easily and this product makes my brush glide right through with no snags. It’s truly weightless which is vital for those of us with finer hair. It also smells really nice – nothing too strong just a light, pleasant scent.
Then I get my Big Volume Root Lift and spray this directly onto the roots of my hair. You can spray it in your hand first for more control. I work it in well with my fingers, toss my hair upside down and start to blow dry. Sometimes I use a large round brush to lift and blow dry the top sections of my hair, depending on how rushed I am.
At this point I’ll either curl my bottom ends with my round brush and blow dryer or I’ll use my Nume iron to create spiral curls.
Now it’s time for the #1 show stopper in the Rock Your Hair line.. the Spray It Hard hairspray. This is pretty awesome hairspray. It smells great (always a requirement for me), doesn’t crunch or flake, gives a strong but flexible hold so you can spray it all over your head AND it gives hair a glossy finish. Definitely one of my new staple hairsprays.
If I don’t have time to wash my hair in the morning, or if I need to revive my hair after a long day at work, the Bombshell Big Hair powder is my go-to. I just lightly sprinkle this stuff onto my roots, give it a little rub with my fingertips and my hair just inflates. Like all the other Rock Your Hair products, this stuff smells great. It clings to hair and makes it look thick and full. It’s also great for adding some volume to your crown when you want to throw your hair into a ponytail but don’t want to tease.
