And I’m not talking about my website drama this morning 😀 First of all, I’m so sorry for the inconvenience with my website! I don’t know what happened but all my posts this month are missing. Luckily there were only two that disappeared completely with comments and everything. I got emails that there were a couple of comments awaiting to be approved but they are all gone from the dashboard! So sorry! But the good news is that the site is up and running! And I’m trying to get the old posts back too!
But lets focus on something positive and change the subject 🙂
Do you have a habit of getting yourself a Christmas gift that is something that you’ve been really longing for quite some time? I don’t do it every year but this year I pulled a trigger and got myself a new hairdryer that I’ve been desperately needing! And not just hairdryer but a straightener too! Using my soon to be old hairdryer I could spend a good hour to dry my hair… and after that process I’m all sweaty being under the hairdryer heat for so long 😀 Imagine starting the make up part, when your cheeks are so red that you feel like you need to dunk your face in ice water. So what I’m looking for a hairdryer is that it can deliver fast and that it locks the style without harming the hair too much. Like whenever I come from hair salon, after they have blow dried my hair, it actually stays that way! And I know that it’s not just the styling products working miracles since I use the products that they use. But whenever I dry my hair with my old hairdryer and I go out, my hair starts to break up and go frizzy.. not necessarily completely frizzy but some parts of it start to fly and I hate it! If I have to go someplace and I want my hair to be somewhat OK and secure – what I normally do to survive is that I wash my hair the day before so that it has at least an overnight to dry completely and has no moisture when I style my hair. (Talking about problems eh :D) Or if I have time, after washing my hair I let it air dry about an hour before I start blow drying it.
I was joggling between this Ghd hairdryer and Drybar, both from sephora. And with A LOT of research and questions asked I decided to go with the Ghd hairdryer. After I’d made my decision I accepted the fact that I would get the hairdryer first, and straightener later on because to get the two of them at same time is quite pricey. But now, just in time before I did anything I saw this Arctic Gold Deluxe set at Sephora! Ghd doesn’t usually have sets like this available so this was wonderful news for me! If you are looking to get a good professional hairdryer and straightener with the same package deal, here’s your chance! Remember this set is limited edition and available online only at Sephora.
Now that the hairdryer is all sorted out and on its way. (seriously can’t wait) I decided to make a list of a couple of hair styling products that makes my life way more easier when dealing with frizzy hair like mine! Like I’ve mentioned before my hair is naturally curly, and if you have it too, you know that it gets super frizzy if there’s even a hint of humidity in the air 😀 But I’ve learned to let go most of the anxiety of controlling it at all times, and only get serious about it when I have some important places to go to 😀 But what I’ve learned over the years is to get the right products and tools. And I’m really hoping that the new hairdryer gives me more support a whole other level. But here’s a couple of products that I’ve been using for years or recently discovered.
I’ve been using this one for YEARS. It’s been working for me great! I have a long and medium thick hair and with me this one bottle lasts for a looong time.. and I’m talking about over a year! First of all a little goes a long way and I don’t use it all the time. Only when I want absolute frizz free secure my hair! So, I use it maybe every other week.
Another favourite is this BB Defrizz. I mix it a little with the straight styling cream or I use it for dry hair. Same thing, I got this bottle about 2 years ago and I still have little bit left!
This summer, before we took off to Paris and Finland I redeemed some Sepora points to try this BB shampoo, conditioner, primer set. And I absolutely fell in love with it! My hair was softer that ever before and smelled so good! But what really stands out for me was this primer. Whenever I let my hair just air dry, I spray this primer, comb it and let it dry! Loved it!
Another hair primer that I’ve been using is this Living Proof Style extender and whenever I use it it actually makes the style last longer!
I rarely use hairspray these days.. But when I do, I like use this one. And what I love about it that it doesn’t make the hair stiff or heavy.
So here was a couple of things from my bathroom cabinets that are working wonders for my hair! I can’t wait to add the new hairdryer and straightener to the set 🙂
