The holidays are just around the corner (squeal!), so in preparation for all the parties and various get-togethers that will inevitably ensue, I wanted to get my hair game strong and, let's be real, photo-ready... you know what I'm talking about. Enter Shoppers Drug Mart, my longtime go-to for beauty and haircare necessities. Because my hair is relatively short and limiting in terms of hairstyle options, I like to focus instead on creating loose, casual waves while injecting lots of texture and shine into my lob— after all, less is more right? Exactly. But if I'm going to be completely honest here, the one product I need most during the holiday season is without a doubt dry shampoo. It's a real lifesaver during all the hustle and bustle of the holidays because it helps to seriously extend my style between washes (hands up emoji).
It would be no exaggeration to say that I've tried an obscene amount of dry shampoos over the years, but one that I always seem to come back to is Dove's Refresh + Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo— the scent is light and fresh while the formula itself leads to some seriously plumped-up locks. There's no chalky residue with this one, and instead my hair feels refreshed and touchably soft; as you can imagine, to say that I'm a fan of this product is a massive understatement. I really like Dove as a brand in general, but this product is definitely the star of the show as far as I'm concerned. If you haven't tried it yet, do so immediately; you won't be sorry.
So after applying dry shampoo to the roots of my hair and massaging it in thoroughly, I pull out my trusty flatiron to create loose curls and lots of texture. I always alternate the direction of my curls for a more natural effect, finger-combing through them when I'm done to create a messy, undone look that's perfect for dressy and casual events alike. From there, it's all about Nexxus® Maxximum® Super Hold Styling & Finishing Mist. This product has a micro-fine mist that keeps your hairstyle intact while giving it tons of bounce and touchability— in other words, it's like party hair in a bottle.
Between this product and Nexxus® Mousse Plus® Volumizing Foam (you know, on days where I actually wash my hair), my holiday hair game is seriously strong... recognize.
These haircare brands— along with cult favourite TRESemmé® — are officially on my "To 'Do List" (get it?) this year for amazing, photo-ready hair. Want in on the action? Hit up your local Shoppers Drug Mart (the Optimum Points® are worth it alone!) and love every selfie this holiday season... and speaking of selfies, why not document your sweet holiday 'do this year with an instant camera? It's so much fun, and you'll have a lasting, tangible memory of the fruit of your labours. Just know your angles and have some fun with it!
