My Hair Care Routine!

Hello gorgeous!
 
 
In just a few hours, I'm officially turning eighteen. EIGHTEEN! and this is officially my second birthday blogging. So for my 18th birthday,I'm handing you guys a gift; a new post!
 
 
 
 
 
I was requested to do a Hair Care Routine by a lovely anon on ask.fm, which was a little bit surprising but why not!

They say a girl's smile is her best accessory, as I might agree, I think hair is just as equal as your that gorgeous smile. As Hilary Clinton says "If I want to knock a story off the front page, I just change my hairstyle", stunning hair is a must for models, actresses, your favourite singers and anyone on the red carpet, so why not you?


My routine won't be a very long list, but let's get to it!
 
 
#1: Washing my hair with cold water

 



Straight from taking a shower or a long bath, I've been making sure cold water hits my scalp. Just the way cold water is your skin's best friend, it is to your hair. Cold water makes your hair healthy looking with a touch of glow, just like cold air. Which is why blow driers have a cool air, if you ever wondered. Cold water closes the cuticles, giving you stronger hair and less fallouts. I could go on and on about the benefits of cold water, so if you wanna know more, you could leave a message on my ask, or a comment down below!


#2: Sunsilk Shampoo





I love trying different shampoos and scents for my hair, but for a few months now, I've found myself constantly going back to Sunsilk! With it's new formula, it does exactly what it says, giving you super silky hair with just one wash. I've tried the green, pink, purple, neon blue, gold, red and yellow and I've loved them all! They smell amazing and you can skip the conditioner, saving your hair from all the additional chemicals.


#3: Tresemme Styling Spray with Heat Defense



 


Right out of the shower, I have been loving this! It literally helps a ton with styling my hair, since I've taken a break and noticed the difference. It also protects my hair from heat which is a definite must when I'm basically playing with my hair all the time.


#4: Energy Cosmetics' Perfect Fruit Serum


 




If I'm not using the Tresemme styling spray, I'll head to this amazing serum. I like to go back and forth between these two products, because I like how they both work, so whenever I'm going through a bad split-ends week, I'll just use this for a little quick repair! One thing I've noticed is you should never use this serum and the styling spray at the same time, that just turns into a mess, which is why I go back and forth with them! I spoke about this in my June Favourites which you may check out right there.


#5: Brush my hair!


 


After applying one of the two above and maybe waiting for my hair to dry a little, I brush my hair. Yes, I know, bad habit! But I just can't get myself to comb it. A tap on my hand for that!
 

 
#6: Batiste Dry Shampoo






After drying and styling my hair, if it seems a little flat, I like spraying some of this on my hair for more volume! Note: I don't always use this, just when it's needed. Plus, my hair stays oil-free for a longer amount of time which is great. I also have this in my June Favourites if you'd like to read more.



#7: Extras!




 
 
I have been using these heat products which I actually like, may I just say the hot pink straightener caught my eye with just the colour! I tend to dry my hair quite often, just because it takes forever to dry on it's own. I use the Braun Satin Hair 5 for that, and when I'm going for more than just a natural look, I'll use the Jose eber Pro Series straightener to either straighten my hair or give it a different kind of wave.


Something I like to do is plait my hair and run the hair dryer around the plaited part and that works amazing! I tend to go for a natural look half of the time, just to spare it from more damage!
Basically, that's all! I hope this was a useful post, If you'd like a skincare routine, just leave me a comment below! Or you could leave me a message on my ask right here.
