Most of you know I just chopped off all my hair a few weeks ago. I recently treated myself for my 29th birthday and cut about 12 inches off and also got a Keratin treatment. I have awful & unruly hair. (see here) Naturally very curly, but not pretty curly, insanely frizzy curly. My hair was a constant battle and I wore it up 99% of the time to not have to mess with it. I wanted a change, a style. I knew the Keratin treatment was my only hope to keep up said style though. I highly recommend it! It's not cheap, but if you have awful hair that more often than not brings you down, you'll pay anything for real help. I can now blow dry my hair and have nice relaxed, manageable & shiny hair, it's a million times worth it to me. I wanted to share how I've been wearing/styling my hair and a few products that I've been loving with you. Let me know if you have any questions about the Keratin treatment as well.
I wash my hair every 2-3 days. I shower every single day, but my hair is thick so it's very easy for me to skip washes. When you have color & chemically treated hair, you really want to stretch that as long as possible, so it works out for me. On day 1 after I've washed it the night before, I run the straightener through it a little and don't use any product. On day 2 I use my Nume wand to add some curls/wave, sprinkle a little Pret-a-Powder on the roots for grit & texture and use my Davines Finishing Gum to really emphasize the texture around the bottom. On day 3 I add a little more Pret-a-Powder around my scalp (works like a dry shampoo) and a little more Finishing Gum throughout the bottom and a few pieces all over. That's it! My waves are perfect from the day before. I am loving my new hair, it's like a whole new head of hair for me. More on products below & enjoy the car selfies.... #ididitfortheblog
I like to use a little Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer spray for protection and Repair Blow Dry cream for added moisture after I wash & before I blow dry. I've really become a huge Bumble fan over the last year.
As mentioned above, I use the Nume 25mm Classic wand to add curls/waves to my hair. This wand is amazing ladies. The YouTube beauty guru hype is legit. The curls only get better after 1-2 days. That's even after having it in a ponytail while working out and sleeping on it! Can't say enough good things about it. You can always find big coupon codes & deals, I paid $50 for mine. The Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder is another fabulous find. It's a dry shampoo, style extender and volumizer all in 1. It blends into your hair great and doesn't leave a gross texture like other similar products.
If you have a textured cut, you N E E D Davines This Is A Medium Hold Finishing Gum in your life. It gives you that perfect piece-y texture without making your hair gross. I can use this on day 2 and day 3, no problem. It rocks. Using products like dry shampoos, texturizers and pastes can dull or mattify your hair a little so I've always been a shine spray fan. I'm on my 3rd bottle of the Smooth Sexy Smooth & Seal Anti-Frizz & Shine Spray. Who doesn't want their hair to be shiny?!
And, I've used the TRESemme' 3 hairspray for as long as I can remember. So cheap, so good.
