Max Made



Like your makeup, your hair too deserves (and needs) a little mid-afternoon touch-up! Right when our bodies are crying out for that afternoon coffee our blow-dries start to deflate and frizz; our beach waves starts to break apart looking dry and fluffy; and our perfectly flicked bobs start to flop and look greasy. Enter Maxmade’s “60 SECOND HAIR FIXERS!”. Tame frizz, boost volume and give your style a second-wind with just a minute to spare.




Revive your style and put the shine and bounce back into your blow-dry with just: your hands, a brush, and pea-sized amount of Wow’s One-Minute Stlying Cream. No need to worry about weighing hair down or  loosing that curvy shape of a blow-dry – simply rake your fingers through the mid-lengths and ends with the styling cream and follow with a brush. Tip; To ensure you get as much bounce as possible back into your mane, use a round brush to move the product through to the ends gently twisting the brush so the hair rolls through the brush – re-enforcing that delicious bouncy shape! 




Like the name suggests KMS Dry Touch-Up is designed to revive dry hair types that tend go fluffy, loosing it’s texture and separation throughout the day. If you’re a hair flicker or you want to extend your salty beach waves – then this product is for you! Spritz through the mid-lengths and ends and watch it evaporate into the hair, re-hydrating the hair shafts helping your hair to settle back in to it’s original form.



Hot off the press ORIBE is one of my newest hair product obsessions. Their Aprés Beach Wave & Shine Spray is taking the term ‘beach texture’ to a whole new level. Not only does this product give a sexy texture but gives you the control over unwanted flyways with it’s weightless none-tacky shine. Perfect for hair all types, thick or thin, straight or wavy. Simply spray it into dry hair scrunch and you are ready to go.




Fabulous it says and fabulous it is! Kerastase Fix Fabulous Spray is my go-to product when reviving yesterday’s voluminous blow-dry. Section hair and spritz on the roots to obtain maximum volume. Flip your head over and spray the mid-lengths and ends to create movement and volume through the ends. Tip; Don’t be shy in giving the top section (crown) a light mist and brushing down any fly aways.



Why should blondes have all the fun? Up until now, brunettes have had to think twice when it came to refreshing their hair in-between washes with a dry shampoo. Even the (supposed) invisible or clear dry shampoos leave some sort of residue in our dark luscious locks. Well not any more! The thoughtful team at label.m have been kind enough to specifically design a Dry Shampoo for the Brunettes as well as the blondes! Remove excess oil from the roots and give mid-lengths and ends a little TLC when time is tight. Tip; To evenly distribute Dry Shampoo I recommend you brush your hair with a large air-rating brush. I used Shu Uemura’s Paddle Brush as it air-rates the hair making it light and floaty!

  2. Nicole says:

    Hello! The Oribe really interest me. I had an idea for a feature for you – what about a feature on Beach Sprays? There are so many on the market and I am so confused! Some I have looked at is the Kevin Murphy ‘Hair Resort’ and the Evo range. Do some testing for me!!
