Today’s post is all about HAIR!
Lately, I’ve had some questions about whether or not I’ve changed up my hair routine, and the answer is YES.
At least, a little bit.
In September, I tweaked my normal routine. I still go to sleep most nights with my hair wet, but I’ve been using some new products PLUS my Revlon dryer brush. I also think my hair just looks healthier now because it’s not summer any more when my hair is daily abused by sun, chlorine and humidity. That in itself has helped tremendously. As much as I love “living outdoors” during the summer months, it kills my hair.
Today, I’m sharing my new little routine in case you’re curious/interested/love a beauty post like me 🙂 . I’m always about 2 minutes away from cutting my hair. I get it trimmed every seven weeks or so, and right now, it’s longer, but I’m always on the verge of a fresh cut. Anyone else?
So, here’s my new routine:
1: I almost always wash my hair at night and then sleep with it wet. On the rare occasion that I do not do that, then I still do this same routine, but either let my hair air dry as long as possible or pull out my Dyson dryer to get it 90% dry. I use THESE TOWELS on my hair when I get out of the shower to get a lot of the moisture out.
In September, my hair stylist told me to switch to THIS SHAMPOO and THIS CONDITIONER. It’s not fancy, but it not only smells really nice, it has totally hydrated my hair!! In fact, thanks to switching, I am using fewer styling products after I wash it.
2: So, after I shampoo and condition in the shower, I get out, wrap up my hair in this towel for a few minutes and then brush it out with my Wet Brush. Then, I apply a dollop of THIS for a bit of extra hydration and to smooth it out a bit/prevent frizz. From there, I either go to sleep with it wet, let it air dry or use my blow dryer to dry it 90% dry.
3: The next morning (or when I’m ready to style), my hair is always either dry or almost dry, but regardless, I still pull out my REVLON DRYER and run it over my hair. I think this smooths everything out, dries any hair that might still be wet and then also gives it a little lift and “life” after sleeping all night/air drying. RIGHT BEFORE I use that Revlon Dryer though, I smooth a little of THIS on my hair as a heat protectant (it also really hydrates/perks up second day hair!).
4: After my Revlon Dryer, I’m ready to curl. Instead of using my T3 wand (which I used for years!), I’ve been using a 1 inch T3 barrel. I divide my hair into three sections and curl away from my face.
5: After my hair is curled, I run my fingers through it to break up the curls and then give it a light spray of THIS hairspray.
And then, I’m done 🙂 .
Nothing fancy, just a few basics, but I do feel like my hair is much healthier this year than last year.
