Turn Up The Volume

I went to have my color touched up today and my hairstylist used a product to style my hair that prompted me to write this post. I have extremely fine, naturally wavy hair and the summer heat and humidity really makes styling it, and keeping it styled, a challenge. Usually the less products I use the better off I am but I still end up using at least 2-3 products when I straighten it; a heat protectant, a styling aid such as a smoothing cream or serum and I finish with a bit of hairspray. The only time I see volume in my hair is when I go outside in the humidity and it starts to come undone, haha!

Before drying my hair she sprayed it with Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep. That’s it. The company’s claim: Nature’s boost for fine hair. This pre-style treatment infuses hair with all-day weightless volume that feels naturally yours. Aveda’s own pure-fume aroma with jasmine, certified organic peppermint, palmarosa, ylang ylang and other pure flower and plant essences.

Not only does this stuff do what it says but it smells AMAZING (as do all their products). After styling my hair, she lightly spritzed it again and that’s it – no other products in my hair.  After standing outside on a parking deck in the heat & humidity (with a slight breeze) for about 45 minutes this afternoon during a quick photo shoot, going about my regular daily activities and a nap – 9 hours later and it still looks great!

It’s priced at $24 for a 3.4oz bottle but a little goes a long way. If you order online, you can get 15% off your entire order just for signing up for their email – and shipping is FREE! Plus, right now you’ll also get a FREE travel size Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother ($9 value) with your order! Aveda products are worth the splurge and because a little goes a long way with these products you get your money’s worth. Below are links to all the products used on my hair today.
