Herbal Essences is bringing us haircare for a "tousled " look. Every time new hair products come out they are sleekifying, straightening, for severe damage, frizz taming. You almost never see something for thick hair, short hair, and yes, tousled hair, i.e a shag style cut or layers. ( Although longer hair gals who want undone, messy waves fall into "tousled" category too).
I have a modified shag that is fairly short. Oh and it's as straight as could be. I'm glad of that, but I was happy when I saw this new Tousle Me Softly line. These are for me I thought and I can go right to the drugstore for them. I know all those other lines are much needed, but it's nice someone finally gets it( besides Sally Hershberger)- that the whole world does not have the same hair needs. What happened to us shorter hair gals?
I love to spike, fluff, and piece out my layers especially at the top. I am an all out gel girl because they do the best job of defining and holding.
The Tousled line has a spray gel (finally making a comeback, I used to use spray gels a lot years ago), a mousse ( again welcome back), a hairspray, a finishing creme ,and of course, a shampoo and conditioner.
The shampoo/conditioner combo made my hair super soft but not limp. I added in the spray gel before drying and got decent hold and defined pieces. The hairspray is a much stronger hold than they tell you, which is fine by me , but high humidity will break it down some.
The line launches in stores July 1, but more info and images are available at :
