Fabulous volume. Check.

With Aveda styling products, there's almost nothing you can't do with your hair.

I wanted to create volume. Of course, this coming from a girl who puts nothing in her hair. You have to understand, since going red, I have encountered a few missteps in hair products — mostly styling. I just assumed I needed to stay away from everything.

After having tried these two unbelievably amazing products from Aveda, my hair has seriously missed out!

If you haven't tried phomollient™ styling foam, holy guacamole! It's all kinds of crazy good. Three squirts for me and there's volume for days. The patented formula (certified organic honey, burdock and marshmallow root) creates weightless volume for fine to medium hair. Teamed with the volumizing tonic™ — watch out. People will stop you on the street! The volumizing tonic™ creates maximum volume, containing certified organic aloe and wheat amino acids to help build body and add shine. 

While I believe these two styling products are truly the dynamic duo, you don't have to use them together. I put each product to the test individually. The volume is still there, just not as much as it is together. And the volumizing tonic™ definitely proves to be the dominant product.

Va Va Voom! Give it to me.

While you may worry not of sprouting gray hair at this moment in time, you can't escape the future reality.

It's going to happen. One day you will find a gray hair (or three) pop up, and you will need a good product to turn to. Fortunately, I have a solution, thanks to one of my California friends. ROOT VANISH by Kazumi is a luxuriously light, all-weather, everyday solution to instantly touch up gray hairs and roots with just one click and swipe. My friend swears by it.

The CEO and Founder of KIWABI, the Japanese beauty brand, partnered with KAZUMI, the highly coveted Beverly Hills and NYC-based master hair colorist, to create ROOT VANISH, a product made to carry you over in between coloring appointments. Brilliant! Featuring 22 + hair and scalp fortifying botanicals from Japan’s exceptional hair care industry, ROOT VANISH by Kazumi is the first non-permanent coloring essential that is free of all things undesired. It leaves no sticky, hardened or crusty residue. There is no color transfer, even in humidity or light rain. And it's 100% safe and healthy for hair and scalp.

Whether you have gray hair now, or just want to cover up your roots in between coloring, take note now. This product will certainly come in handy (thank you, Sylvia)!
