Shu Uemura Ample Angora Volumizing Light Foam - 132g - $42 - with a unique soft foam texture that melts instantly on contact with the hair fiber to add body and volume - enriched with buds of Japanese cedar - from which the most intense cellular vitality emerges from its bud - to gently give volume and a texturized finish to fine hair.
I use this one when I want all-over body and volume but don't have time and/or energy to blow dry - I just spread a small ball of foam through damp hair and let it air dry for volume and a bit of texture!
Shu Uemura Fiber Lift Protective Volumizer - 150ml - $42 - a clear, lightweight gel that creates voluminous styles with lasting hold and natural shine and delivers lasting support from root to end while helping to protect from heat and external aggressions. Contains depsea water - an extremely pure water from Japan that contains over 60 minerals and nutrients such as magnesium to fortify the hair fiber.
This one is perfect when I want to add lift to my roots - I use a dime sized dollop of product rubbed between my fingers and applied to my roots and then blow dry with my head upside down - for va va voom volume!
Shu Uemura Volume Maker Invisible Texturizing Powder - 2g - $50 - with a compact click-applicator brush that makes it easy to get those translucent silica particles exactly where you need them for all-day lift and instant texture.
Even better, it also works great as a dry shampoo - my hair has a nasty habit of starting to look kind of oily in the afternoon but a swipe of this to my bangs and the roots of my part instantly banishes the greasies - tip my head upside down and tousle it in and it refreshes the body too!
Best of all - everything in the line smells good too! Available at participating Shu Uemura Art of Hair salons and online at www.shuuemura.ca.
