Ever since the entrance of a purple pair of stylers into my life *angels sing* The GHD’s *light shines from the sky* nothing has been the same. All of my frizz tamers are no longer needed, and my hair? Silky smooth like a newly shaved leg. I’m not kidding – my boyfriend is revelling in being able to touch my hair ( a once forbidden activity because curls? They take time, effort and luck – a lot of luck).
So out with the frizz tamers and in with the texture-makers! With a side of deep deep nourishment for hair that undergoes straightening or ‘styling’ with heat at least twice a week ( I wash my hair every 3-4 days, depending on how.. icky it seems).
So what’s in line? A salt spray that I have loved even back before I liked to straighten my hair from the glorious Bumble & Bumble. It’s a bit pricey but so worth it if only for the scent – it reminds me of the summer in new york when I discovered this product and promptly doused my hair in it. The best bit? You get that textured feel of being in the ocean with out being in the ocean and having sand down your swim bottoms. It also seems to love some humidity, strange thing.
For extra oomph – and getting rid of the pesky oily sheen that hair takes on around day 3 I’ve got the ‘Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo‘. It does exactly what it says on the tin, despite the mouthful of a name. The weird thing here is that it seems to be a liquid to powder spray, no powdery residue or white cast on your hair which is very very peculiar. It also smells like tropical fruit mix so the stinky hair is a thing of the past with a spritz.
To make sure my hair doesn’t hate me I indulge it once (or twice) a week with a deep conditioning treatment. I picked up the Charles Worthington Salon at Home Intense Rescue Melting Balm when I was last in London (hey, Boots has 3 for 2!) and just a smidge of this slathered on my mid-lengths to ends put up in a bun for a few hours if I can or 30 min if I’m short on time does wonders for the hair. Silky, shiny and no longer frazzeled or angry for the heat being applied in-doors (because outside? That’s a whole other story.)
Do you change up your hair when the summertime makes it presence known? I’d love to get some more ideas!
