If you dream of voluminous, bouncy hair, these brands are for you
Jun. 28, 2020
It seems as though every hair advert that we see features a model with the thick, voluminous, bouncy hair that we all dream about – but, for a lot of people, it’s a far cry from reality. So many of us battle with fine, flat hair on a daily basis – whether it’s down to genes, the environment we live in (any other big city girls reading this?!), or a lack of time to dedicate to styling. But don’t fear – hair care brands far and wide have heard our call for help, and some in particular have come out top.
Redken has been around for years – since the 1960s, in fact – so it’s likely that you’ve used some of the company’s products before. Now, there’s a fantastic Cerafill range designed specifically for thinning, flat, and fine hair – and the products are some of the best around. According to Redken, the Cerafil Retaliate Stemoxydine Hair & Scalp Spray claims to grow 1,700 new hairs in three months by energizing the hair follicles – and judging by its popularity, customers seem to agree. And better yet, the Cerafill Dense FX Hair Diameter Thickening Treatment instantly plumps individual strands of hair for maximum volume, with the company claiming that it has a similar effect to adding up to 9,000 hairs after just one use, as each strand’s diameter is increased by 9%. If anything’s going to do the trick, surely it’s that?!
You probably heard of RevitaLash Cosmetics when it took the beauty industry by storm a few years back with its physician-led, award-winning line of cosmetics designed to restore and enhance lashes and brows. They were an instant hit with customers all around the world, who were amazed at the genuine improvement they saw in a relatively short space of time. But not everyone realizes that RevitaLash also has a line of hair care products containing a multitude of natural ingredients that promote scalp health and thicker, healthier hair. And better yet – they’re all-natural and cruelty-free! The best-selling hair products for fine, flat hair are the Thickening Shampoo and the Thickening Conditioner – both of which contain specialized ingredients such as loquat lead and flax protein to add volume to thinning hair and protect against hair breakages.

Paul Mitchell prides itself on its strong core values, which include guaranteeing that all its products are cruelty-free, completely natural, sustainable, vegan, and paraben- and sulfate-free. And, luckily, it’s another hair care brand with a whole range dedicated to thinning, flat, and fine hair! The Extra Body line includes thickening shampoo and conditioner, which are both extremely popular products, but one of the bestsellers is the Anti-Thinning Tonic Leave-On Scalp Stimulator. The blend of nourishing and stimulating ingredients absorbs into the scalp to help boost hair growth, increase density, and protect against breakages – all resulting in fuller, thicker, bouncier hair for you!
The name “Grow Gorgeous” doesn’t leave too much to the imagination – but this hair care band conceived by skin care specialists and formulated by hair care experts doesn’t only offer products tailored toward encouraging hair growth. No – the company’s aim is to boost hair and scalp health from within to achieve an end result of longer, fuller, thicker, healthier-looking hair – so naturally, it has a line of products tailored for people with fine, flat hair. One of the company’s bestsellers is the Grow Gorgeous Intense Thickening Hair & Scalp Mask, which is enriched with a nourishing balance of powerful hair care and skin care ingredients to visibly increase hair thickness while maintaining scalp health. It also contains caffeine, biotin, and niacinamide to stimulate the roots, as well as pea peptides that release film-forming properties that effectively revive flat, lifeless hair. The Volume Bodifying Leave-In Serum is also another best-selling product, which contains many of the same ingredients and allows you to style fine, flat hair to achieve voluminous locks.

HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
