Hello everyone! I get asked about my hair a lot, like if I dye it and what products I use, stuff like that. And let me tell you, I don't spend a lot of time on my hair at all. I'm pretty lazy when it comes to styling, so anything that makes it easier to do my hair, I'm all for trying it.
Background: I have fine hair, so heavier products that are supposed to moisturize your hair weigh my hair down and make it look greasy and gross. And no, I have never dyed my hair. Occasionally, like once a year, I will use gradual lightening products (a.k.a., blonde highlighting shampoos, leave-in sprays, ect.) to keep my hair the shade of blonde that I like. As for the texture, I have very straight hair. I can air-dry it and it'll look like I straightened it with a flat iron.
Washing: I wash my hair every 2-3 days. Washing your hair everyday can strip it of its natural oils and ultimately dry it out. At first, I had to train my hair to get used to going that long without a wash. Your hair will be greasy some days but in time that will reduce and you can go 4 days without washing it. And yes, you can still shower everyday, haha. Just put your hair up in a top knot or a shower cap to prevent it from getting wet. Sometimes when I tell people that I don't wash my hair everyday, think that I don't shower for 3 days. No, I live for my shower every morning.
The Products: I have found my HG haircare range! And it's super cheap so it won't break the bank. *drum roll* It's the L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 line! Everything I've tried from this range, I loved. I don't need as much repair as it claims to give, but I do use heat and it does take a toll on the health of my hair. The shampoo and conditioner help reverse that (or at least makes it look like it did) for everyday use, but the repair balm is great if you want something that's going to pack a bigger punch. This range makes my hair soft, shiny, and look healthier. And for those days that I'm not washing my hair, dry shampoo is a must. Out of the million dry shampoos that I've tried, the Batiste Dry Shampoo in the Blonde shade is my all time favorite, but since ran out recently, I'm currently using the original which is still good, especially if you don't want anything tinted.
Styling: I feel like you can get away with dirty hair more if your hair is curly, I don't know if that's just me. But personally, I like messy, curly hair because it's fun and effortless. I'll just curl my hair one day, and then wear the curls the next two days. If they start to fall, I just go back in with my curling iron, touch it up a bit, and then I'm out the door.
Let me know some of your HG hair products! Do you like curly or straight hair? See you next time! XD
