Best Styling Cream...?

on Mar 29, 2010 @ 11:46 am

What's a good styling cream I can get hopefully at an affordable price at Target, Walmart or Sally's Beauty Supply...? I really need one for the little flyaways that are always annoying. Also that will make my hair shiny, not oily and dirty, that will give me a nice sleek look, manageable hair with volume. Specially when I have my hair up on a ponytail or down and flat. What do you girls recommend..?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a newbie with hair but here are my rec's on Mar 29, 2010 @ 03:15 pm

I love using Pantene's full and thick, it really leaves my hair voluminous and lifts it a little. I barely ever put products on my hair, but when i need to tame fly aways, I have a serum and a cream from Frizz ease. I believe you can find them at wal mart. They both work quite well and the trick is to use very very little, rub it on your palm and smooth it. My favourite hair product ever is Moroccan oil. It's a bit pricey, but honestly, you can use a little over a dime size and it's enough for all of my hair. I love this product because it smooths my hair, nourishes and moisturizes it, doesn't weight it down, smells heavenly and eliminates frizz. It does many task in one so it's worth it in my opinion. The trick for this is to make sure you apply it when your hair is damp and when it's dry.

As for keeping a ponytail slick, since i have a lot of baby hair, a spray of any hair spray works for me. I know there are also a lot of drug stores out there, so try looking around and let us know! : )

what's your hair like? on Mar 29, 2010 @ 09:14 pm

What's your hair's texture? Do you have fine hair? Thick hair? Course hair? Is it dry? oily? The type of hair that you have should help you choose your product.

My hair is fine, so products like moroccan oil build up on my hair quickly and cause it to look greasy and dull. Thicker or more coarse hair does quite well with it though :)

I use a styling lotion called Potion 9 by Sebastian (I know that the wal mart I used to go to in the US has professional styling tools, as does Target). I bought a small size at a beauty supply store for $5.99. I use enough to cover my ring fingernail, rub my hands together and (starting at the back of the head), distribute the product throughout. After drying, I use a hairspray on any flyaways (again, I get it from the beauty supply).

I am really lucky because my stylist always talks to me about the condition of my hair before he touches it. He's not pushy with products but will tell me how to make my hair the healthiest. Unfortunately, a lot of major brands are mostly wax-based which after a week or so, build up on my hair and cause it to look heavy and dull. Never underestimate the power of a well-educated stylist! They went to school for it-ask!
