Anastasia Speranskaya, senior editor of BeautyHack, takes the choice of hair products seriously: they should add volume and shine, moisturize the ends and fight against fluffiness. A texturizing spray for volume, the lightest oil, milk that turns hair into silk, and other trophies from Anastasia's beauty cabinet - in the special BeautyHack collection.
Trophy Shine + Texture Spray, R + Co
If you still haven't found the perfect volumizing product, feel free to try the Trophy Texturizing Spray from the American brand R + Co. Everything is good in it - from the effect to the aroma under the mysterious name "pink haze". The brand pays great attention to creating a unique perfume composition for each product - in the Trophy I hear notes of bergamot, cedar wood and tonka bean.
The spray adds not only texture and volume, but also shine. It contains components that care for hair: filler earth (natural clay), which absorbs excess sebum, like dry shampoo, kelp - it is responsible for shine, and sweet almond oil, which helps moisturize hair.
A small bottle lasted for almost a year of constant use. She listened to the advice of the art director of the MONE salon Lilia Klycheva: at the end of styling, she lowered her head down, applied a volume spray to the inside of her hair, then threw it back and combed it with a comb with wide teeth. It turns out a noticeable volume without the effect of hair sprayed together!
Price: 2 200 rubles.
Firming Anti-Age Oil Young. Again, Kevin. Murphy
Yes, hair needs anti-aging products too - especially if you're not sixteen. But despite belonging to the anti-age category, the oil is suitable for girls of any age - the elasticity and silkiness of hair has not bothered anyone yet.
Mine, fortunately, do not need a serious recovery, but during high humidity with fluffiness they have to fight - here Young. Again comes to the rescue. I will say right away - the oil is absolutely weightless, it is very difficult to apply a lot and turn the curls into icicles. I love using it on dry hair - a single tap on the dispenser is enough, but the shine is guaranteed for the whole day. If your hair is severely damaged or just falls into the category of "age", I advise you to apply to damp, towel-dried hair before using styling products - the effect will be more noticeable. Read about mistakes when using hair oils here.
By the way, sugarcane extract (it exfoliates and polishes hair), extracts of camellia and immortelle leaves - powerful antioxidants, a trio of burdock, lemon and safflower oils are responsible for recovery. Not without horse chestnut extract - it is he who is the "culprit" of the luxurious shine of hair as in advertising.
Considering that you literally need a drop of oil for an average hair length, a bottle will be enough for you for a long time. But after visiting the pool (water with chlorine is the enemy of silkiness) and on vacation, Young. Again is going with a bang - after a year you will definitely need another bottle.

Shampoo and conditioner "Extra-volume" Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, Moroccanoil
The history of the Moroccanoil brand began with the unsuccessful dyeing of its creator Carmen Tal. While traveling in Israel, Carmen went to a salon where her hair was ruined. A friend took the woman to another salon in Tel Aviv: the master saved the strands by applying argan oil to them. Carmen took one bottle of the miracle drug home to Canada, distributed it to friends and colleagues, and convinced Ofer's husband that it was time to open a beauty business. After 6 months, the Moroccanoil brand appeared.
To all those whose hair looks like swan's fluff, I tell you about the ideal shampoo for volume. I am always on the lookout for products that give my soft, fine and overly smooth hair the volume and texture it deserves. Trying different means, I faced two problems: some shampoos gave the desired effect, but the curls began to fluff up even more, turning me into a brownie Kuzya, others thickened my hair, and then gravity did its job.
The fragrant "duet" from Moroccanoil is the golden mean. Hair rises from the roots, but at the same time it shines and does not get tangled. Both products contain a light, delicately cleansing formula, so I boldly use both shampoo and conditioner every day. Among the ingredients is the protagonist of all Moroccanoil products - argan oil with antioxidants, which nourishes the hair, and the extract from linden buds is responsible for the volume.
By the way, you don't have to worry about the presence of sulfates, phosphates and parabens, thanks to them shampoo and conditioner are great for caring for colored hair. And all Moroccanoil products (including these) have a tart, trademark scent. The creators of the brand call it "Fragrance Originale".
The price of both funds: 1 405 rubles.
Multifunctional milk for hair OI All in One Milk, Davines
If there was a lifetime subscription to a beauty product, I would choose this - Davines milk works miracles with my hair. For the first time I tried the OI line during a professional care in the salon: the curls became soft and dense, and the sweet oriental nut scent lasted even after washing my hair.
At the heart of the product is annatto oil, which contains a huge amount of beta-kerotine. So, beautiful hair should be! And the word “multifunctional” in the name is no coincidence: the nourishing formula of the milk not only softens the curls, making them shine like Disney's Rapunzel, but also facilitates the drying process with a hairdryer (you can save time), protect from hot air and even add volume (33 beauty hacks for lush hair look here).
To fully experience the effect, I advise you to use milk after shampoo and OI conditioner - all you have to do is understand how not to go crazy with the magic aroma. And if your hair is very dry or damaged after dyeing, take note of the advice from "Miss Dry Ends": apply several doses on the palms, rub a little and distribute through hair after blow-drying. Then you will definitely be able to postpone the visit to the hairdresser.
Price: 2 500 rubles.
Mousse for styling Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, Oribe
A tool that none of my styling can do without is volume mousse. And considering that I style my hair every day, you can imagine how many liters of this product were used. I've tried many different options, but Oribe mousse never fails - I always come back to it. Owners of thin and very soft hair will understand me: the product should instantly make the strands dense and raised at the roots during blow-drying.
Airy, yet resilient, Grandiose does not stick together curls, but gives them noticeable splendor. And don't be afraid to get caught neither in the snow nor in the pouring rain - the product guarantees fixation of the styling and prevents moisture loss. For this, a special thanks to the active ingredients: sunflower seed extract, vitamin B5, panthenol and edelweiss extract - it is he who thickens the hair and enhances its natural radiance.
And for the product to work as efficiently as possible, use the advice of stylist Vyacheslav Ryabokon: rub the mousse in your hands to the consistency of a cream and apply along the entire length with hammering movements - the volume will be "alive" even the next day!
Price: 2 700 rubles.
