I wanted to give you all a little insight into my current go-to products and hair care routine!
For starters, I only wash my hair twice a week and I do that for a couple of reasons. One of the main reasons is the more often you shampoo your hair, the faster your color will fade. Color fading is normal, and is part of the color process, but the less often you shampoo it, the longer you can prolong that process. Another reason is the less I wash it, the less often I have to put heat on my hair because of blow drying or curling. The final reason, if I’m being perfectly honest, is that I HATE doing my hair! The longer I can make my style last, the better.
I shampoo my hair 2-3 times when I wash it. The first time I use Kerastase Scrub Energisant to exfoliate my scalp and clarify. My second shampoo I use Oribe Serene Scalp to help fight against dry and itchy scalp. My final shampoo I use is Kerastase Genesis line to help fight against shedding. I only condition once and I use the Genesis Fondant for that. Once I finish, I wrap my hair in a microfiber towel or towel scrunchie and chill out for an hour or so. The longer I can air dry, the faster my blowout will go.
When I finally work up the motivation to blow out my hair, I first apply Kerastase Initialiste and Genesis Scalp serum to my root area. I then spray in Oribe Royal Blowout and Maximista, and I’ll normally switch around between Oribe Gold Lust Oil or Supershine Crème for my ends. The products I like to use tend to be lightweight and have a no product feel finish. The reason I still use products is that a heat protectant is a must for any kind of heat styling and Oribe offers heat protectant in all of their products with only a few specifically rated for 450 degrees. My other deciding factor is if I feel like my hair needs more moisture or more shine.
I go very simple with my blowout. Honestly, since I normally wash my hair at night, I just blow out so it’s completely dry, and because I typically curl it the next morning I don’t worry about if its smooth. I will use my round brush right in the top layer and in my bangs to give it a little extra volume. The next day I spray in Kerastase Fresh Affair dry shampoo, and Redken Iron Shape for my heat protectant and start curling. I separate my hair into three sections because it’s easier for me to control and take about 1” partings to curl at a time. When my hair is completely curled I’ll let it cool down, then I typically flip my head over, rake my fingers through my hair, and spray with Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray. Over the course of the next few days I may touch up my top layer of curls, and I use Oribe Matte Waves in dry hair to give my curls some definition and that’s it!
Getting your hair ready for the week can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. The trick is knowing the right products for your hair type. If you aren’t sure, you can always ask your stylist for recommendations or for tips on how to get Salon ready hair at home!
Here’s to YOUR great hair day!
