Hair can make or break a look—that’s coming from a girl who has always been plagued with limp, lifeless hair: ME. I used to think that the problem was not having the best hairstyle for my face shape. But then, after trying just about every possible hairstyle—long, shoulder-length, pixie, bob, layered and shaggy—the limp look lingered. So on days I couldn’t spare an extra 10 minutes to blow dry my hair, I’d just tie the whole thing up in a messy pony or bun to add volume to hair and simulate a textured look. Most of the time, my hair would just look, well, messy, as if I was wearing a bird’s nest as a hat. But this was before I came across Nick Chavez Amazon Hair Body Building Styling Clay.
I’ve always been impressed with Nick Chavez’s hair products, not only because he had a pretty colorful history. (I mean, who would have thought that grooming his family’s horses would eventually make him one of the most sought-after hairstylists in Beverly Hills?) But more than that, I like that his products are very gentle to my sensitive scalp, like his Volumizing Shampoo. Regular shampoos tend to make my scalp itch uncontrollably, but that shampoo doesn’t. Plus, this shampoo contains a powerful blend of protein- and vitamin-rich botanicals to strengthen and thicken my ultra-fine and color-treated hair.
If your hair is like mine, the best limp hair advice I can give you is to use Nick’s Amazon Hair Body Building Styling Clay together with Nick’s Volumizing Shampoo. This hair clay is so easy to use. After I towel-dry my hair, I blow-dry just the roots of my hair. Then, I take a pea-sized amount of the clay, rub it between my hands, and then rub my hands all over the roots. The result is almost immediate. Once the rest of my hair has been air-dried, I get is a nice round plump shape that frames my head—and it stays that way all day long! And since this product is highly concentrated, I don’t use up that much product, which means I’ll probably hold on to the tube I have for a really long time.
Of course, I’m still on the lookout for that one defining haircut—the same defining hair moment that catapulted Jennifer Anniston’s layered locks into instant stardom. Maybe one day I’ll meet a genius hairstylist who will pave the way for that. But for now, I’ll let Nick Chavez’s hair clay work its magic on my stubborn head of hair.
