HAIR TALK: CURRENT HAIR CARE ROUTINE

Hair Care_cover

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to share with you my current hair care routine. This routine is quick and easy, and as a result, you will have smooth shiny hair. Just to let you know, my hair is quite fine and thin so I’m not entirely if this routine will work for you, But give it a try and you may be surprised! This tutorial creates natural and very soft waves using a blowdryer – a simple, easy blowout

After dyeing my hair so many times in the last couple of years, my hair turned extremely dry and it felt dead. It didn’t look that dry but  I still didn’t like it at all. I tried so many different things to ‘revive’ it again but nothing didn’t work for me. I started doing this routine and I instantly saw a big difference. I feel my hair is much healthier and I love the way it is now. Note, I am no professional. This is just what works for me and if you have any helpful tips to share, please let me know! So read on to find out what my routine is….

 

THE PRODUCTS

hair care_productsThese are the products I use on my hair. I also use the TRE Semme Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner.

  • Vitress: This product is from the Philippines. I love that it leaves my hair smooth and shiny.
  • Elvive Anti-Breakage Leave-in Conditioner: Love.love.love. I have to thank this product for being the main reason why my hair is smooth again. It’s very cost-friendly and makes your hair very smooth and soft.
  • Argan Oil: This helps to keep my hair soft, healthy and shiny
  • Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo: I love this product so much. After buying all the scents from Batiste, this cherry one is my favourite. This helps is giving a little bit more texture and volume to my fine hair and also is great for reviving unwashed hair.
  • TRE Semme Heat Protective Spray: Always use heat protectant to prevent heat damage to your hair.  

THE ROUTINE

1. Before hopping into the shower, I always brush my hair to get rid of all the tangles

2. After washing my hair and patting it down with a towel, I gently comb through my hair

3. I then spray the Elvive leave in condition to my ends, then to the rest of my hair.

4. Next is the Argan Oil. I use 2 pumps and focus it on my ends. With the remaining product on my hands, I distribute it to the rest of my hairhair care_argan

5. I then spray heat protectant, making sure it is distributed all over my hair

6.  I run my fingers through my hair to make sure all the products are in.hair care_run fingers throgh

7. This is a bit weird but at this step I wet my fringe again and blowdry into place. If i don’t wet my fringe again, the fringe won’t sit right and it will look strange.

This step makes sure it it sitting right and is smooth. (also a tip, make sure you wash your front-fringe everyday to make sure oil doesn’t built up on your forehead.)

8. Now I let my hair air-dry to about 85%-90% while I do my makeup and get other things ready.

9. If my hair is still a bit damp, i blow dry the rest with my head upside down (to add volume)

10. Now it’s time to blowdry. This is my way of blow drying my hair. It’s probably not the right way but i like the result. I first split my hair in half (left side and right side) to make things a little bit easier

Taking small section of hair (about 1 inch), I wrap it around a large round brush with a bit of the ends hanging out.

11. I blow dry my hair while slowly rolling the brush down the section of hair. Keep the brush and the blow dryer moving to create smoothness.

12. When I get to the ends, I like to hold the brush vertically so that it creates a bend curving inwards (towards the face).  Apply the heat and slide the brush out. Make sure to keep the brush spinning to create smooth ends.

13. I continue to do the same for the rest of the hair. It does not have to be perfect, so just grab random sections to blow dry.

14. When I’m done, my hair looks like this. As you can see, this technique creates a nice shape to the ends of the hair and some body.  I then blow dry my roots on the cool setting to help set the blow out.

16. Next i ‘scrunch’ my hair in random places to create texture and volume. Then I use a pea-size amount of the vitress shine serum to the ends

17. Finally, I use a straightener to fix and style my fringe.

and I’m done! I know this looks like a lot but it honestly only takes me a few minutes.
