Given my background of being a stylist for over 9 years, I’m excited to talk about my hair care routine with you guys today! One of the most important things for me is starting out with a good shampoo and conditioner, because if you don’t get this part right, your blow-out won’t look the best it can. I like to use Sebastian Volupt shampoo, since I have baby fine hair that really lacks in the volume department. For me achieving volume beings at washing my hair, and nothing has worked better for me than Sebastian! Plus it smells AMAZING! After I shampoo twice, I towel dry my hair before adding my conditioner. This is a really important step in actually helping your conditioner do it’s job. If your hair is still wet when you apply your conditioner, all it will do is coat your hair and make it soft because your hair is like a sponge. So all the fancy things it promises on the bottle, won’t do thing! If you really care about the health of your hair (which every girl does) this step is VITAL. After I towel dry my hair, I rotate my conditioner with Penetraitt or Volupt conditioner. Also, they happen to be buy two get one free right now!
Next, I towel dry my hair, and I use the Chi Volume booster to add texture to my hair. This stuff adds so much volume it’s unreal! Then I use the Pravana Nevo Intense leave in therapy treatment. This stuff works great if your hair tangles easily, just apply a few sprays to the ends of your hair. Then I flip my hair all forward and begin blow drying with the T3 featherweight. What I like about this blow dryer is how quickly it dries my hair. Once I made the switch to T3, my drying time got cut down nearly half!
Once my hair is completely dry, then I use the T3 volume rollers. I usually let them sit in while I eat breakfast and do a little reading. That way they also have time to cool off before I remove them, that’s what really helps lock in the volume. If you take them out when they are still hot, the volume won’t last because the curl didn’t have time to fully set in.
Then I use my T3 wand to create lose curls. Because of my streaks, my hair doesn’t look good straight anyway, so I always curl my hair. I don’t use a very specific technique for doing my curls, and honestly the wand makes it so easy! I just try to make sure when I wrap the hair around the wand, that the direction of the curl is going away from my face. This is especially important if you are like me and always striving for the infamous Victoria’s Secret curls.
Lastly I use a straightener on just the very ends of my hair. Usually after I use the wand, the ends of my hair are going in all different directions. This drives me absolutely nuts! LOL! So using a straightener on the ends is a helpful little trick to achieving flawless waves. Then I use the Sebastian Shaper hairspray all over for a flexible hold. I don’t like anything to heavy, so this stuff is great for if you don’t like to feel like you have a lot of product in your hair.
