What are some lightweight hair products?

Products tend to be thick, greasy & heavy in my hair weighing it down, which makes it look limp, dirty & lifeless.What are the best lightweight products, recipes or even techniques I could adopt into my daily routine?

You can try a mousse that gives volume. The problem is finding a mousse that wont live it thick or sticky. I used herbal essence and got 2 b, but stopped with the herbal essence brand all together since I found out they were testing on animals also its not CG so that's a NO and the got2b I can't say if it is CG but it worked for a while and then didn't. So finding the right mousse is not an easy task. Anyway you should give it a try it does make your hair look well defined and fuller.Another option is to use a styling cream, however if you feel it weights your hair down leaves it feeling greasy you can apply a few drops on your hand and mix it with water and apply on to your hair.I do a mixed of coconut oil, styling cream and water and use it. The amount depends on the look you want it, for example if I want it a more natural and fuller look I would apply less product more water, If I want more definition and hold it will be the opposite.And a third option that many use is a strong holding gel.So go over the ingredients list, the suggested products and when you buy one try getting a trial sample or small bottle.
Hi Curlsemous, I would recommend sticking to one product in your hair. Avoid layering, such as putting on a leave-in, gel, and oil (just to give an example). I personally love milks and leave-ins, because they offer moisture while also giving your hair some style. They usually dry super fluffy and curly. Here are some of my favorite light stylers: 1. https://shop.naturallycurly.com/karens-body-beauti...2. https://shop.naturallycurly.com/camille-rose-natur...3. https://shop.naturallycurly.com/alikay-naturals-du...4. https://shop.naturallycurly.com/devacurl-light-def...5. https://shop.naturallycurly.com/jessicurl-spiralic...Hope that helps! Remember, using light products also applies to cleansers and conditioners. Stay away from co-washes or no-poos that are too heavy for wavy hair.
