Hey everyone! Today I'm back with a review of some Rock Your Hair styling products. To see my review of the Rock Your Hair "Big Hair Rocks" shampoo and conditioner, click here.
I got 4 products to try: Size Matters Root Lift, Spray It Hard Big Volume Hairspray, Miracle Leave-In Conditioner, and Bombshell Big Hair Powder.
Unlike the shampoo and conditioner, all the styling products I received for review are full size. The Size Matters Root Lift is a 13 oz volumizing mousse and retails for $20. Spray It Hard Big Volume Hairspray is 10 oz and retails for $20, Miracle Leave-In Conditioner is 7.5oz and retails for $20, and last but not least the Bombshell Big Hair Powder is 0.9oz and retails for $17.
You can purchase the products through the Rock Your Hair website, or most places that fine hair care products are sold.
I'm definitely always trying to get more volume out of my hair.. except.. well, I'm really lazy and the extent of my hair "styling" is flipping my hair over to dry it and then straightening it. Are you seeing a problem with my methods? Yup.. not much volumizing going on there.. so I was very excited to try the Rock Your Hair products to see if they could give my hair a boost with not much extra effort on my part. Here's how they fared:
Size Matters Root Lift Volumizing Mousse -- First, maybe I'm doing it wrong.. but this stuff is kind of hard to get out of the can! No matter how long or hard I shake it, every time I spray it I get blasted by cold, compressed air and then eventually some extremely light mousse comes out. It's not thick at all, and has a very unique smell. Almost like the juice from a watermelon.
Even though the mousse is light, when it dries it makes my hair sticky and that's something I'm not a fan of.. but it does give me some extra volume. If I want to pull my hair back into a pouf after using Size Matters, I don't have to tease it unless I want a BIG pouf. (And that's saying something!)
Spray It Hard Big Volume Hairspray -- This is a great light/medium hold hairspray. It holds well, but leaves your hair touchable enough to where you can still brush or run your fingers through it. I love that it controls flyaways and gives hair enough texture to really hold teasing well (for those big poufs I was talking about a second ago!). The scent is pleasant and smells very similar to the shampoo and conditioner.
Miracle Leave-In Conditioner -- This promises to give you shinier, stronger, healthier hair and is parenben, sulfate, and formaldehyde free. It protects heat styled, color treated, and chemically processed hair. And it smells fun and perfume-y, too!
The Miracle Leave-In Conditioner is a regular liquid (not thicker like It's a 10), and when paired with the Rock Your Hair Conditioner that I felt didn't do much for my hair, I do finally notice an improvement. The Leave-In Conditioner not only makes my hair easier to comb through, but it does leave my hair softer and shiny. However, my (severely damaged) ends still look rough so I have to use a heavier conditioning balm on them, but I have to do that with my regular products as well.
Bombshell Big Hair Powder -- I've never used a volumizing powder before, but I know they're very popular with customers at my work. I think I've shied away from them until now because the product itself is sticky and I was always afraid that it would make my fine hair look dirty and greasy. Or that the white powder would make my dark hair look like I put baby powder in it. Well, there's a first time for everything!
Imagine my surprise when I ended up LOVING this product! The white powder is actually a little bit damp, and once it's completely rubbed in, it's invisible! Not only that, it gives my hair texture, volume, and a bit of shine without making it look dirty! Win win, I tell you! And it smells awesome just like the shampoo and conditioner.
Overall, I think the Rock Your Hair styling products are pretty awesome! As far as purchasing these products myself, I would pass on the volumizing mousse since I don't care for the stickiness it leaves in my hair and probably the leave-in conditioner since I have several others already that I think do a better job on my severely damaged locks. However, I really like both the hairspray and the volumizing powder and will definitely implement them into my everyday hair routine!
I'm going to give them a 4 out of 5 star rating, deducting only for the volumizing mousse. If you're looking for a fun line of salon haircare products that will really ROCK YOUR HAIR(style), I definitely recommend Michael O'Rourke's line!
RATING: 4.0 out of 5 STARS
