I’ve been styling, dying and cutting my hair (the latter, my husband does for me), ever since we moved to California. Mainly for the fact that I know exactly what I want, and how to achieve it myself. Plus, it’s really hard to find a stylist!
I started dying my hair using the same products that my at-home-stylist used on me when I lived in Canada. So far it’s been working out well — minus a few minor mistakes by me (leaving the dye on too long making it extra dark!). My hair grows at an incredibly slow pace, but I’ve figured out the products that suit my baby-fine hair, and keep it healthy looking in between trims.
My perfect hair day checklist:ghd hair dryer| Last month you guys might’ve seen me unbox my new hair dryer that ghd sent over to me. Um, now I know why people invest in good hair dryers. One, this is super lightweight and easy to manouver with a flick of the wrist and my round brush. I blow dry my hair straight for the most part, and then follow up with a hair straightener after the fact, but using the removable nozzle on the end is fantastic for creating a sleek at home blow-out. Have you guys ever used their products before? They’re phenomenal! I highly recommend it. I’ve never had a dryer so fancy before — and the one we had prior to this was 8+ years old and totally fried my hair (or so it seemed). Oops.
Buy: ghd air® hairdryer $199USD.
hair products| My aveda round brush is over 10 years old and I’ll never get rid of it because they no longer make this specific brush. It gives me the perfect amount of volume and has this pick-thing on the end that’s great for putting my hair into sections with those yellow clips you see above. It’s also important for me to use some sort of leave-in conditioner, and right now I’m using the drybar Mr. Incredible. It’s awesome (and in aerosol form) so it’s quick to apply to the ends. When blow-drying my hair I use a mixture between the aveda round brush and the drybar lemon drop hair brush — then follow up with straightening on the ends. To finalize everything I then apply a serum on my hair. I actually prefer a different one but I’m slowly going through the kerastase elixir.
What are some of your favourite hair products? Comment below and try to make me smile a bit today — because I deleted every.single.photo. off my camera last night, by accident (switching over to a new phone). I am so upset lol.
