My Everyday Hair Styling Products


Having a hairdresser in my family--my sister--has somewhat encouraged my interest in haircare. Back home I'd spend my Sundays being a guinea pig in an effort to help my sister practice her styling techniques. I'm not a haircare wiz by any means but I have come across some hair styling staples that I would like to share with you. 

I'd like to start in order of application -  So once my hair is freshly washed and some what twenty percent dry I like to began with prepping the hair for heat styling. That is where my trusty Pureology Color Fanatic Spray comes in; this all in one products pretty much does everything. It protects your hair from heat styling tools, detangles, enhances shine, and protects coloured hair. On days where I am really not feeling making a big fuss about my hair, I can just spray this on and blast my hair dry in around 15 minutes. This is the perfect product for any minimalist girl out there.

If I'm feeling in an extra pampering mood I will apply the Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist. The dry oil has similar claims to the Pureology spray although I do find it to be slightly more conditioning which is the main reason I only use it on my ends. The convenience of the spray bottle makes it a lot easier to use than the usual hair serum. Both the Pureology Color Fanatic Spray and Alterna dry oil are free from parabens, drying alcohols, and synethic dyes. Seeing as I'm not using a sulphate free shampoo this makes me feel better about being kind to my hair. 

So at this point unless I'm planning on curling my hair or have a special event I would usually skip the last step and go straight to the drying stage. Let's say for this post's sake I want to look extra glamorous, I apply a dime size blob of the Living Proof Prime Style Extender through my ends. Now when I first heard about this product I was very confused. A primer for hair? We all know companies sometimes make ridiculous product claims and that's mainly why I wanted to see what this product was all about! Now I really think this is a product to be used on special occasions only. If you are going spend the time styling your hair you might as well try your best to prolong your creation. 

Once my hair is dry and polished I then go in with the TIGI Bedhead Headrush Shine Adrenaline Superfine Mist.  This mist is great for greasy-prone hair as it doesn't weigh the hair down and doesn't have that sticky feel that many people hate. It gives you a quick shot of instant shine with a girly mist of fragrance. 

Since I've shared my hair go-to products I'd love to hear yours! I've found so many hidden beauty gems from my subscribers, I honestly have a list :)

  2. Its amazing, I've ever seen anyone else post about the Bedhead shine mist but just yesterday I mentioned it I think on Laura's blog (buynowbloglater). I used to see it everywhere and now I don't so much, in stores I mean. I agree with what you said about it completely. This isn't hair related but just in case you and I have the same taste, have you tried the Dior NudeSkin concealer? That's another wonder for me. More skin like than the Nars creamy concealer.

    1. I love the Nak heat protectant, specifically for that, and the beach hair texturiser, which is blue and smells perfect. Even the Nak heat protectant has a gorgeous smell that has kinda jazzed up my usual Tresemme heat protectant usage. The beach texturiser can make your hair look like a poodle if you spray too much in when it's wet and you already have normal hair. It's that effective.

    2. Oh by the way, I love the Nak products- they all have heat protectant properties in them (even though I don't know why you'd need a heat protectant built in your texturiser

    3. Hey! No I haven't tried the Dior Nudeskin Concealer, I haven't heard much mentioned about it. I love the Nars Creamy Concealer but sometimes It's a bit too thick. Thanks for the suggestions :)
