As a hair stylist, clients are always telling me what they want with their hair. They want their hair to feel super soft, have volume at the roots, etc... We have compiled a list of our products that will help you do just this!
If you want your hair to feel super soft, you need to look for ingredients that are neither too heavy or too light. You want to look for a product that contains natural oils, like avocado oil, aloe vera, ceramides, proteins, milk proteins and vitamin E. Remember, always take your hair type into consideration when shopping for products. Heavy conditioners contain thick, emollient-rich ingredients that can leave fine and limp hair weighed down.

If you have curly hair, then you know all about Frizz. Smoothing Shampoos are good for frizzy hair types, but they may not work as well if your hair is extremely thick. Look for a product with smoothing ingredients like glycerin, essential fatty acids, silicone, aloe vera, vitamin E, resins and gums to tame frizz, and calcium and magnesium to fuse the protein chain together to lift and define curls. Avoid ingredients such as alcohol. Our Experts Suggest: Tigi Bedhead Foxy Curls Shampoo Frizz-Fighting Sulfate-Free Shampoo Flaunt your Foxy Curls™!
