Review: Shaking things up with Joico!*

For those who know me, will know that my fine limp hair is always a concern of mine. I love having long hair, I used to have hair down past my boobs but because I could never get the volume and texture unless I waved my hair everyday (which I never had time to do), it just wasn't the smartest decision to keep my long hair in the long run. So to compromise, I cut my hair to a lob (short back, front long) so that I can keep some length in the front and the shorter layers in the back give me the volume.

When Joico reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try their two newest creations to join their Hair Shake Series, Joico Beach Shake and Joico Body Shake, I had to say yes! (as I would try anything that could give me the possibility of some volume and oompf!)

The concept of this product is that it is a dry styler that gets sprayed to the shaft and roots of your hair to give you texture, thickness and grip. You shake it, spray it and tousle it to what you like and just leave it.  

In the before and after photo - you can see that I have very thin hair on the left. Being postpartum as well means that I am also loosing more hair than I would like. It's hard to hold its shape even if I use my old concoction of dry shampoo and hair spray. It's limp, static-y and just not co-operative. 

I used the Body Shake, which was designed for fine to medium hair on the roots and the upper hair shaft area and instantly I had poofier and more voluminous hair that lasted the majority of the day! I mean, I am a mom now so I didn't have the luxury to keep my hair down all day but for the 5-6 hours it worked. 

Left: Body Shake ~ for fine to medium hair | Right: Beach Shake ~ for medium to thick hair.

I highly recommend that if you have the same hair concerns as me, or that you just want some extra volume, that you just need to purchase one of these!

Until next time, XO - M.
