My hair is (finally) long. I have been in the growing out process for ages. Now I’m here, my hair isn’t “shoulder-length,” or “medium,” but legit long. Long, thick and and pretty heavy. I aspire for a bit of wisp, for light layers that bounce. This doesn’t typically happen, especially when I flatiron my hair. I’m left with smooth hair, but ends that sort of hang. Lifeless, boring— not exactly the type of Hair Commercial Look I was shooting for.
I decided I needed a bit of definition; something to piece out the ends without further weighing down my hair. Enter Sally Hershberger’s Shagg Rocks Liquid Gel ($13, try drugstore.com, soap.com, or your local Ulta).
You apply to the ends of your hair post-blowout. The product is a clear, slightly watery (at first) gel and is really easy to work with. (Give your hands a quick rinse after; once the product dries it’s a touch sticky.) The finished result is hair with a little movement (especially if you give the ends a quick flip with the flatiron) without added weight or product build-up.
Does this sound like a product you need in your arsenal? Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you!
