Confession: I am a hair product hoarder. Growing up, my best friend had a giant table in her bathroom where we would stockpile all of our hair products. We would get ready to go out to high school parties, and we would use a ton of products that we didn’t need, just because it felt fun to experiment. As I’ve gotten older (oh, late 20s, why do you sting the way you do), I’ve narrowed it down to products I actually NEED, and today that’s what I’m sharing with you.

-Big Sexy Hair Powder Play
I’ve been using this product for almost a decade and I love it. Don’t let the tiny bottle fool you, this product lasts for a long time. This powder is the perfect item to reach for if you have thin or fine hair – it adds so much texture.

-Superstar Blow Dry Lotion
I use two products while blow drying my hair, and this is one of them. I love that it adds volume without weighing your hair down or making it feel gunky.

-Batiste Dry Shampoo
This is the only dry shampoo that I swear by. I’ve, in fact, been known to get cranky when I run out. I basically hate washing my hair and try to only do it once a week, so this is a life saver.

-Aveeno Leave in Conditioner
I put this spray in my hair every night before bed to keep it protected from damage.

-Bed Head Queen for a Day Spray
This is the second product I use when I blow dry. If you have thin hair, this is a MUST. It adds so much thickness while you blow dry and lasts for days.
