Today I'm going to share some products that are definitely worth the $$$, but also some ways of recreating them at home.
First up is straight hair:
DIY - To instantly fatten up skinny locks, create a sugar mist by mixing 2 tsp of brown sugar and 1 cup of warm water in a spray bottle. Shake well and mist damp hair from roots to ends. Style as usual.
For wavy hair:Buy it - To make your waves look lush and defined, warm a walnut-sized amount of lightweight cream in your hands and run it through your hair from midshaft to the ends. Try Dove Style + Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum ($4 at most drugstores).
DIY - Wavy hair can look dull, so boost shine by soaking hair in a apple juice rinse made of 1 part apple juice and 2 parts lemon juice. Apply to freshly washed hair, leave in for 2 minutes, then rinse.
Lastly, this is for very relaxed hair:
Buy it - Relaxers can irritate your scalp, making it flaky and itchy. For fast relief, soak a cotton pad in witch hazel and gently dab it onto your scalp - $5, Walgreens.
