Some of you may remember my nightmare of a hair situation awhile back. While I didn’t go into details then, I will tell you now that, long story short, my hair did not react well to color that had been applied to it and instead of it remaining blonde, it turned a hundred shades of GREEN and GRAY. (No exaggeration.) Now, I know that gray hair is “very in” right now (although I’d like to meet whoever claimed that fad because no no no no no) but when green and gray is not what you’re going for, it’s quite traumatizing. Aside from my hair taking the color incorrectly, it also started falling out due to it being completely fried. SO. What’s a girl to do (after she bawls her eyes out) but chop it all off, find someone to fix the color, and start completely over, right? RIGHT. (Side note: I know it’s “just hair” but it’s MY hair… having spent 2 years growing it out only to have to chop it off was horrible you guys!)
I’m no stranger to short hair (my first ever modeling job with Elite required my hair being chopped) but it had been quite awhile since I’d rocked a bob/lob and it has taken some time to get used to the different ways of styling. I have always been a fan of the messy/texturized look but always attempted to get this look with without actual product. This meant scrunching up the roots of my hair with my fingers – the super legit and professional thing to do, obviously. (Please tell me you guys do this too.) The problem with attempting to gain some funkiness/messiness/texture by using my fingers is that 1. it never stays funky/messy/texturized so I end up doing this throughout the day which leads to 2. dirty hair at the end of the day.
I know there are products to help “funk up” your hair, but I’ve never been a fan because most of them are sticky, not to mention heavy and weigh the hair down (and therefore no longer providing volume). I’ll even confess to you all that lately I’ve been spraying dry shampoo on my roots, NOT because my hair is dirty, but because I want a texturized look.
Fortunately, I have found a new texturizing product I’m pretty much 100% obsessed with: Joico Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray. OBSESSED. To prove to you just how amazing this stuff is, let’s do a little Before/After photo shoot, mkay?
Before/After w/ Joico Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray
Things to know:
- This amazing potion is liquid-to-powder, which leaves hair feeling light.
- Only $18 a bottle (5.1 fl oz), compared to other texturizing liquid-only or gel-only products that range from $16-$22
- Works well with all hair types, but especially if you have fine hair, like me!
We love it, yes? YES.

EG Side note– If any of you have recently experienced a hair nightmare and need some extra help to get your hair healthy & growing again, you have to try Terax Life Drops. I’ve talked about this magical stuff before in this post but can’t say enough about it – I swear by it. Yes, I think it smells like wet-dog but twice now this spray has healed my hair and therefore helps it grow faster.
