How I Look After My Hair
Today I wanted to touch down on an aspect of the a women’s life that every other on the earth is obsessed with, our hair. You look on Twitter/Instagram/Pintrest/YouTube/Forums nowadays somewhere within them there will be a whole section dedicated to hair; Hairstyles, Hair care routines, Hair tips, Hair care DIY’s, etc. because we’re all guilty of wanting the perfect flowing locks and that’s okay. So, let’s begin shall we?

1.     I wash my hair twice a week, every 3 days, so I’m not constantly stripping it of it’s natural oils.

2.     I only tend to use dry shampoo on day 3, sometimes on day 2 depending on the greasiness of my hair - consistent use of dry shampoo can cause damage to your scalp!

3.     I always use an oil from the OGX range when blow drying my hair, sometimes I’ll switch it up with my NUXE Dry Oil spray but I like to use that to finish.

4.     I use a Twist’N’Turban straight after the shower and keep it on for a good 20 minutes before blow drying, to reduce heat damage.

5.     I use a Tangle Teezer to get all the knots out when my hair is 60% dry and then finish it off with the Lee Stafford bouncy blow dry brush.

6.     I ALWAYS use a UV spray on my hair when wet to protect it from the sun, I have colour treated hair but I would always recommend using a heat/UV protectant.

7.     I try to let my hair air dry when possible, I’ll blow dry my roots as they get greasy if not dried properly then I’ll let the rest flow free.

8.     I never use the hottest setting on the hair dryer! I try to always use cold or just warm.

9.     I haven’t used straighteners for more than a 2 day period in 2 years, I let my hair do it’s own thing.

10.  I try to always be gentle with my hair, constant pulling and tugging will do nothing but make your scalp hurt and damage the folicles.
