Being a hair stylist isn't easy, especially when it comes to finding a combination of products that work for a good variety of clients. Stylists go through trial and error, creating cocktail potions of products for the right hold and feel. Our own stylist Sherry, has recently discovered one system of products that's worked well for giving her clients beautiful blowouts with ease, regardless of hair type.
Every great blowout starts with a good shampoo and condition. For volume that is still soft and touchable, Sherry begins her routine with Ava Haircare's Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. A sulfate-free shampoo, this high-foaming, creamy shampoo gets the hair clean without adding unnecessary weight or tackiness to hair. Conditioning polymers help enhance fullness and luster, leaving the hair soft and more manageable. The Ava Volume Conditioner is lightweight, as well, conditioning hair without making it feel heavy. An ultra-light silicone conditioner helps protect the hair against heat while reducing blow dry time. The best part about this silicone is that it doesn't build up or leave residue behind. For clients with sensitivities, this paraben-free line eliminates worry of harmful ingredients.

The real game-changer in Sherry's blowout routine is the Ava Volume Gel. A gel might seem counterintuitive to use on all hair types, but it wasn't until Sherry herself got a new style that she discovered how versatile this styling gel is. Up until a few months ago, Sherry had always had fairly long hair. Her thick, Persian hair always took a little extra work for that desired volume. When she decided to go for an a-lined Bob, I suggested she try to style her hair using the gel. A little skeptical at first, she finally gave in and the results were wonderful. Not only did this gel help give her the volume she wanted, but it left her hair touchable and soft, too. What makes this gel versatile is the power combination of Vitamin B5, Argan Oil, Heliogenol and Antioxidant Goji Berry. Whether hair is fine or thick, the Ava Volume Gel keeps it in place without a tough, stiff hold.
