When you want to achieve your hair goals, but your hair has other ideas, that’s when you reach for products. Hair products are the key for creating the styles and looks that we want, but sometimes an off-the-shelf product just won’t cut it.
That’s where product cocktails come in.
I like to mix up my own concoctions to get the exact result I am looking for. I’m going to share some of my favourite product cocktail recipes with you and I’d love to know if you ever do the same with your hair products.
This is a step on from how to use the hair products you’ve got better. You might find using those products at the back of your cupboard in a cocktail is just right for your hair. When you mix products together, they become better than the sum of their parts. In the same way that a tequila shot is way too strong for me, but give me a margarita and I’m very happy. What we are looking for is your perfect margarita for your hair.
You're probably asking, why can’t I just use one product off the shelf?
Well, maybe you can. That product might be like the perfect glass of wine that’s blended just right for your hair. However, you don’t wear your hair the same way every day, so cocktailing it with something else in your beauty cupboard could be the solution for your next hair style.
Plus cocktailing your products gives you so much more flexibility with what you can create. Often a single product is designed for one purpose, be it frizz, or to give texture or volume, but you can mix these all together to get that perfect style that has volume but controls the frizz too. Or if you want to create texture but not too much volume, cocktails are where it’s at.
