It’s TUESDAY TALK!
Once a month, I link up with Ashley and Erika (who host this fun little blog link up), and you blog about anything and everything. This is my first one for 2020, so I thought I’d recap and remind you about the ones I did last year too…
In January, I blogged about HOW I’M USING ESSENTIAL OILS NOW
In February, I decided to blog about…THE FAMILY VALENTINE’S DANCE
In March, I encouraged women to share their businesses so we could SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER
In April, we talked about SNACKING!
In July, we talked about SUMMER SLOW COOKER SUPPERS
In August, we talked about ECHO DOTS
In September, we talked about ECHO SHOWS
In October, I shared my favorite things to buy at SEPHORA!
In November, I talked about how I “dip” my nails.
And today, I’m doing a product comparison…
I started using the Revlon dryer over a year ago and LOVE it! For me, it’s great at smoothing out my damp hair, building volume and giving me a more “finished” look before I use my curling iron. I have never had a problem with my Revlon and love it each and every time I pick it up. That being said, every single time I blog about it, I get some feedback from some of you who do not like it. Now, I would say that at least half (if not more!) or you love, love, love it, but some of you say it’s too hot or it grabs and pulls too much of your hair and you find it damaging.
In December, I shared my hair routine…
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 towelfor 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 .
…and after I shared it, I had many of you say you didn’t love the Revlon and were interested in trying Drybar’s new version, The Double Shot Blow Dryer Brush. So…I decided to buy one of those and compare. It’s been two months now, and I’ve alternated using both, so today, I thought I’d do a little review. To be honest, I feel very similar about both dryers, but there are a few differences. I did a little video to explain…
