What’s In Your Wallet…err…Purse? Hair Products We Take With Us
It's true and necessary...all of us take a few "absolute have to have" hair products wherever we go. But have you ever wondered what everyone has in their purse? We asked our customers and here are their responses - with a few clever tips.
Brush or Comb
The most crucial thing to always have in
your purse is a reliable brush or comb. This can help you out if you need to
add a bit of volume or even if the worst case scenario occurs and horrible
weather made your hair a knotty mess. Keep in mind that using other items in
your hair won’t work at all if it isn’t free from tangles first. Just look for
a travel-sized brush so it won’t take up too much space.
Other than a brush or comb, our customers
said the most common thing you would find in their purse is hair spray…albeit a
travel size. While touching-up during the day usually requires combing or
brushing, a good medium to firm-hold styling spray is an absolute necessity.
Why?? Well according to our customers wind blown-hair, static, and keeping your
style in place after being outside or heading into a night on the town is an
absolute must. Again, a travel-sized spray or a small pump spray that can provide control and protection...that has a
reliable, non-drip spray mechanism is best.
Next on the list of products you need all the time is some quality hair
ties. It is a fact of life that sometimes you will plan on wearing your hair
down all day but weather or other problems get in the way and you need to pull
it up. Having some quality hair ties will make sure that you can always pull
your locks back if necessary. It also gives you more versatility if you want to
change looks before going out for drinks right after work. We have had several
customers using a small zip-lock bag for ties and bobby pins to keep organized.
Bobby pins are incredibly useful to have on hand if your hair is prone
to frizz. If you didn’t put enough styling product in, you might need to add
some to your ponytail throughout the day to keep it in place. They also give
you the option of pulling your hair out of your face quickly and easily. Bobby
pins can even help you create a beautiful bun in moments if you want to change
your hairstyle before going out after school or work.
In recent years, experts created one of the best products to keep on you
at all times: dry shampoo. This is crucial if you have oily or limp hair as it
is a great way to give it a quick boost and refresh it. All you have to do is
apply it to your roots and it will get rid of oil and sweat. It’s a great
pick-me up after a long day or a refresher for “second-day” hair if washing
your hair is not doable or unnecessary.
Hair Specific Products
You should also always keep some products on hand that are specific to
your hair. If yours frequently gets flat by the end of the day, bring along a
travel size container of a volumizing spray or powder. If yours tends to fall
out of any hairstyle you put it in, try bringing a bit of hairspray or some
sort of style holder. For people with frizzes, try keeping a frizz fighter or a
light styling gel in your purse to apply on humid days when you need it to
control your locks.
