My Zoot Hair brand... specifically for short hair... my fave.
have a look here for more info...
I'm gonna have to say Bumble & Bumble.
Fav products: Sumotech (a sort of wax, sort of elastic paste thing, that isn't quite what you think it would be), defrizz (a silicone thing), and grooming creme (lightweight no hold satin creme).
Mixed together. Into a paste of AWESOMENESS.
Awapuhi wild ginger, styling treatment oil, lightweight with amazing control and shine!!!
Definitely Organic Color Systems. I love all the products that are available. There are paraben, sulfate, ammonia, formaldehyde, and plastic free. In addition, the products are 100% certified organic, cruelty-free, and diversion free!!!
Aquage and Biomega have hands down been the best lines I have worked with since I began my journey into hair styling. They provide so many different options as far as products go and I have yet to be disappointed.
For any updo styling I highly recommend prepping the hair with Working Spray. It's amazing for any heat tools you may need. I always use Finishing Spray it holds everything in place without leaving the hair feeling crispy.
