Since I have such a wild and crazy hairstyle, I get asked all the time, “What do you use to get your hair to stand up like that?” So I thought I’d share with you my favorite “holy grail” hair products, how I use them and the reasons I would cry buckets of tears if they were ever taken off the market 🙂
Now, the first time I heard someone refer to something as a “holy grail” or “HG” product, I had no idea what they were talking about. When I heard the words, “Holy Grail”, I immediately thought of movies such as Monty Python and the Holy Grail or Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Both movies feature men on an adventure across the world to find the Holy Grail and they encounter many obstacles along the way. It was then that I connected the dots….an “HG” product is something that you find after an extensive search and it becomes your number one product to use for a specific purpose.
On the quest to find my “holy grail” hair products, I didn’t exactly have to dodge bullets and swords or answer questions like, “What….is your favourite colour?” (Monty Python). I did, however, spend quite a lot of time wading through the maze of hair products, trying all sorts of brands and having lots of bad hair days. But finally, after trying each of these, my search came to an end. I’d found the perfect products for my hair and I was no longer interested in trying anything new…..something very odd for me because I love trying new things!

#2 – Enjoy Dry Wax – Non-Greasy, Moveable Texture, Firm Flexible Hold
*Provides amazing texture and hold without being greasy or “crunchy” 🙂
*You can easily “remold” your hairstyle after applying by using the heat from your blow-dryer and styling with your fingers.
*Fragrance free so guys can use it too!
*It can be a little difficult to wash off hands and out of hair so a little extra scrubbing is necessary. But I think the benefits outweigh this little con 🙂
How To Use: After blow drying hair, scoop out a small amount of wax and rub between hands to soften it; work through hair, styling into place with fingers. To soften the wax and make it a little easier to work with, you can turn your blow dryer on low and heat up the wax in the jar. Use sparingly…a little goes a LONG way!
