How I Tame My New Mane - Top Hair Products + Tools
My long hair was literally weighing me down and was always flat no matter how many styling products I tried. But since I got the big chop my hair has a new lease of life and holds style like never before!
But that body and shine could not be achieved without some must-have hair products and tools which I am going to share with you in this post.
R+Co Gemstone Colour Shampoo + Conditioner*
For squeaky clean locks I always reach for my R+Co Gemstone Colour Shampoo and Conditioner. I have been using this duo for over 6 months and it has secured a permanent spot in my shower caddy. Not only does it keep my hair looking fresh but it maintains a long lasting colour and smells incredible thanks to the Sicilian Lemon, Tangerine, Eucalyptus, Green Tea, Tree Moss and Crisp Amber. Simply apply to the middle of your hair and work through from the roots to the ends. Some of the key ingredients and benefits include:
Hibiscus Extract, found in Egypt, protects the hair, while softening and conditioning. Pea Extract, sourced from India, this extract helps to preserve hair’s colour and protect against discolouration. Rice Extract, sourced from Brazil, this extract smoothes the hair and retains moisture, adding high shine. Golden Root Extract, grown in Sweden, this extract provides antioxidant protection and combats thermal stress.
Oribe Gold Lust Repair + Restore Shampoo*
Like skincare, I like to mix and match my shampoo from time to time for quality salon results and when my hair needs a little extra TLC. The Oribe Gold Lust Repair and Restore Shampoo is a rejuvenating cleanser which combines centuries-old healing oils and extracts—cypress, argan and maracuja — with revolutionary bio-restorative complex to balance the scalp and reinforce the inner strength of each strand.
Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer
I don't like to blow dry my hair too often but when I do I always use my pink Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer. This particular model is the first eco-friendly hairdryer made of recycled materials, is light weight and super quiet. The ionic and ceramic technologies ensure the hair is dried from the inside out, leaving the external structure unharmed in the drying process. The Parlux 3800 is available in 7 colours so you can select a shade to suit your style! Naturally, my choice was pink :)
Models Prefer Conical Curling Wand*
No matter how much I practice I just can't master GHD curls. But thanks to the Models Prefer Conical Curling wand I can create gorgeous curls in minutes! First I start by separating my hair into sections and then take one section in one hand and the wand in the other hand and gently wrap the hair around the wand being careful not to burn your fingers (I definitely need one of those heat gloves!). Hold for a couple of seconds and then release before moving onto the next section. Once done, tousle your hands through to break them up for effortless and chic waves! Did I mention it is currently 25% Off at Priceline for only $14.99 so it won't break the bank! Bargain!
LVL Hairbrush Straightener*
For super straight hair I love using my LVL hairbrush straightener. Simply plug in, turn up to your desired temperature and brush through for instantly silky straight hair in less than 3 minutes!
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray*
This is my new BFF! The Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray gives my once lifeless hair volume and body like never before. To use shake the can, spray at the roots, leave for a minute and then tousle and shake out for effortless waves and gorgeous volume and texture. Considering my hair couldn't even hold one curl, this has my curly styled hair looking fabulous from AM to PM. It is an invisible spray so there is no talc or residue and it also absorbs oil at the roots making it a great alternative to dry shampoo!
Shhh Marble Prink Silk Pillowcase*
Not only is the Shhh Silk Pillowcase totally insta-worthy and helps me get a good nights sleep, but it also extend the life of my fabulous Edwards and Co blow wave so I have volume and body for days!
