Just a short post today, sharing some new products with you. But first, a story:
It’s a couple months before our wedding day. My husband and I are hanging out with one of his roommates. I don’t know how the topic comes up, but I ask him if there’s anything about me that bothers him. Anything at all. Go on, you can tell me.
He sweetly tells me there’s nothing wrong with me. Which is never enough for any woman, am I right? So finally, I push him to the point where he says, “Well…I guess your hair could use more volume.”
After which, I proceed to get very upset and tell him off for saying such a hurtful thing. Because, of course, it’s the most offensive thing he could say. (I was way more offended than I should have been.)
Anyway, back to today. Seven years and two kids later, my hair still has volume issues. Luckily, Statusphere, an influencer marketing company, has sent me some fun new products to try. (So I can spread the word about the good stuff on to you, of course.)
Among them? Rootie the Root Lifter, a product from VOLOOM. It looks like a straightener, except it has teeth like a crimper. And, essentially, it does “crimp” under the top, smoother layer of hair to add volume.
I’m just amazed that someone thought of a solution to my volume issue! It’s pretty simple and straightforward to use. Give it a shot, if you, like me, “could use a little more volume.” :)’
Also, Statusphere sent some products from Youth by Shaklee. The packaging is beautiful, and it appeals to me that they are 100% vegan and cruelty free. They also avoid 2500 harmful chemicals and questionable ingredients.
However, they do contain retinyl palmitate, which some research suggests may cause skin cancer, in combination with sunlight. Be sure to do your own research and make sure you’re comfortable with the product before use. (I’ve been doing more research lately – come check out what I’m learning with my free Better Beauty for Beginners email course this week!)
Thanks to Statusphere, VOLOOM and Shaklee for sending these products to try!
