I hate washing my hair. I really hate washing my hair. I can go three to four days before I break and have to face washing it. Oh, but how I love that first day hair. The silkiness, the softness, the shininess. And not forgetting the texture. This makes it very important to have some trusty products on hand, to keep the beautiful first day hair for as long as possible.
So here it is, my army of 'first day hair' hair products:
Rise 'n Shine Hairspray - got2b | Beach Matt Salt Spray - got2b | Dry Remedy Oil - Aveda | Dry Shampoo - Batiste
Step 1: Dry Shampoo The Greasy Away by using everyone's favourite dry shampoo; Batiste. The day after washing, I usually just spritz some on my fringe, here and there. The next day my roots get a dose of Batiste, trying to use as little as possible as it tends to take the shine away. Annoying. Who agrees that there needs to be a dry shampoo invented that adds shine to our hair?
Step 2: Get Oily too put back some of that shine, that was taken away in the last step by our lovely Batiste (I love you really Batiste). And to get rid of that dreaded frizz. I have been using this teeny tiny Aveda dry remedy sample. It smells amazing, I'll tell that much. A few drops ruffled on the ends to make them look less dry.
Step 3: Salt Spray On Some Mermaid Waves. After the first day wash, my hair can get very limp and textureless, as I am sure is the same for many of you. This stuff is magic in a bottle. A few spritzes all over, with a little scrunching, brings my curls back to life. And did I mention that it smells divine?
Step 4: Hold It All In Place using your fave hairspray. I'm loving the Rise 'n Shine by got2b at the mo. It claims to add shine a volume. Not quite sure about the shine, but I am loving the volume it gives. I scrunch tiny spritz into my curls, which emphasizes them even more. Yay for texture!
And that is how I keep my hair looking shiny and full of life in between washes. Any tips of your own? Share them in the comments!
