5 Great Hair Products for Ginger Girls with Short Hair

Redheads with long hair can benefit from this list too!

Finding the right products for your short hair can be a challenge. Ahead, I’m sharing my favorite ‘redhead friendly’ styling products that work well with short locks.

1. Shampoo:

Finally Glossy® Shine & Luminosity Shampoo for Redheads: It not only gives hair shine but also makes hair look like I just came from the salon. It provides my red strands (and bob) with a shimmery gloss and can be used on a daily basis. This clean formula is formulated with Vitamin B3, olive oil, coconut oil and green tea.

2. Microfiber Hair Towel:

When drying your short red hair opt to use a microfiber towel! Introducing the How to be a Redhead Soft Microfiber Hair Towel for Redheads. Because wet hair is at its most vulnerable, this custom microfiber towel gently and carefully absorbs moisture from your red hair and dries it quickly, all while protecting it from stretching and breakage. This design is uniquely shaped to wrap all of your hair securely (no matter the length), with an elastic strap to comfortably keep things in place. Your hair journey starts here, redheads.

3. Styling Spray:

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydromist Blowout Spray: It really creates a sleek ‘I just came from the blow out bar’ look. The mist is so light and fine that hair has a bounciness that’s not often achieved with other blowout sprays. All it takes is just a few spritzes to detangle and smooth out snarls (which many gingers, like myself, have after a shampooing because of the coarseness).

4. Hair Gel:

Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue Styling Gel: This all-natural unscented gel is great for creating spiky looks with pixie cuts along with giving some lift at the crown for a bob or lob. It’s made with horse chestnut and witch hazel and leaves hair soft; most hair gels leave strands sticky and stiff. I use this sparingly on my roots to give some lift when I’m styling it into a sleek bob.

5. Mousse:

Giovanni Hair Styling Foam, Natural Mousse Air-Turbo Charged Don’t be fooled by what’s inside the bottle. It is a liquid that gets foamed when pumped and gives hair amazing hold. A golf ball size puff is all you need. I like it for textured looks – I apply it to wet hair before using a blow dryer and curling iron to create a textured, beachy look. It can be used before styling a sleek look too. A huge plus is that it doesn’t leave hair feeling tacky or sticky to the touch.

These are the tools in my arsenal to make my strawberry blonde bob look juicier. I can’t imagine life without them.

Rock it like a Redhead!
