I had my long locks chopped off a couple of weeks ago. After growing my hair for the past couple of years in anticipation of my wedding, I was in need of a change. The long bob has been having a moment for the past 12-18 months and so I decided to join the bob gang!
Styling short hair requires more effort than long hair. Long hair can easily be pulled up if necessary but short hair doesn’t afford this luxury. So I thought I would share the products I’m using on my short hair right now.
After washing my hair I run my Denman Professional Comb for Grooming (D22) through to remove any knots and to smooth. What I use next depends on how I’m styling my hair.
If I’m leaving my hair to dry naturally, I’ll scrunch through Umberto Giannini’s Curl Friends Create A Curl Scrunching Jelly. I’ve been using this jelly for years. It does have a tendency to go a little crunchy as the hair dries but if you have a play it quickly disappears. It’s really important to use this jelly when the hair is wet, as it can make it really greasy if you use it on dry hair.
If I’m planning on rough drying my hair and curling it with my straighteners, I’ll use TRESemmé’s Perfectly Undone Waves Creating Foam. This is a nice light mousse which enhances curls without adding weight to the hair. I have also used this for second day waves/curls, to rejuvenate them after a night of sleeping on them!
If I’ve straightened my hair, VO5’s Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray is a great pick-me-up for the second day. It works a bit like a dry shampoo – without the grey – and helps to give hair a bit of volume.
Do you have short hair? How do you style it? Any products you swear by?
