Dress- New Look
I think my hair is always a topic of discussion on my social media platforms & I probably receive majority of your emails inquiring about my hair care routine! Contrary to what it may look like, I am actually very care free when it comes to my hair. I try to keep the steps minimal, taking care of it by using a good shampoo & deep conditioner. I also avoid colouring my hair too often. I've mentioned this before, I had pretty short hair when I was in school. It's only when I entered junior college that I started to grow my hair out. I don't know what it is, it's probably my genes or the fact that when I was younger, my parents were rather diligent in making sure that I eat healthy & my dad would oil my hair every Sunday, but my hair grows pretty quickly & it's quite thick! While this may be the envy of many, it's quite a task to maintain it.
I wash my hair 2-3 times a week, depending on the activities for the week. Usually I hit up the gym 3-4 times a week because of which washing it becomes inevitable! But I don't condition my hair every time I wash it. Because my hair is on the longer side, conditioning it 3-4 times a week would weigh it down making it appear limp. So I only deep condition twice a week using The Body Shop's Rainforest Radiance Hair Butter for coloured hair. This one smells amazing & has been doing really great things for my hair. On the days that I wash my hair but don't condition it, I use the L'oreal mythic oil post shower. I try to keep my routine very simple with limited products because my understanding is that the lesser products I use, the lesser I will be messing with the natural process.
When it comes to styling my hair, I naturally have a wavy texture which doesn't always look great! So I do have to style my hair using either a blow dryer or a curler. I love blow drying my hair but because my hair is so long, by the end of it, I am literally so exhausted. However this new Philips Kerashine Air Straightener, has been working wonderfully for me. Not only does it leave by hair super soft, it also gets rid of the frizz due to the keratin. It has literally reduced the blow drying time by 10 minutes which is a lot when you're in hurry in the morning. I also love the naturally straight effect it gives which makes it look like I woke up with this hair! The brush is so easy to plug in & extremely convenient to use. It has a cold as well as normal setting which is always a great option to have. My hair is pretty thick and yet this manages to work it's way through perfectly. I am not very careful about the sections & just randomly slide it through different sections of my hair for a quick revamp. All in all, if you like to blow dry your hair often, this is something that would be right up your alley. It gives your hair that perfect laid back yet smooth finish! With it's reasonable price tag, this is a great tool to add to your styling kit. And just btw, I think this work wonderfully for men too!
