Hi everyone!! Today is all about my 5 secrets to beautiful hair and while I’m not particularly keen on the way my locks look right now (these damn bangs are making me look like an 80’s rocker) the products, tools, and tricks below have definitely helped save my butt when it comes to my dry, frizzy mane (especially during this time of year) and have also helped me tame my Farrah Fawcett wings. Let’s take a look at my tips and tricks below …
I love treating myself to a good hair mask from time to time, especially when I notice my hair is starting to feel dry and look a bit dull, to me this means that I’m in desperate need of a good deep hydrating condition and it’s exactly what I give it with a good mask, leaving my locks shiny and super soft!! However, one thing I’ve learned (the hard way … LOL!) about hair masks is that you HAVE to make sure to follow the directions on the package!! Some hair masks have proteins in them and leaving them on your hair for longer than outlined in the instructions can actually damage your hair. So, if the package says to leave the mask on your hair for 15 mins DO NOT leave it on all night … I’ve definitely done this before (lesson learned!) and it left my hair so dry and felt terrible after! I won’t be doing that again! LOL!
Yes. Scrunchies are back in and I cannot imagine my life without them!! They are the easiest (and cutest!) way to toss your hair up in a quick messy bun and they don’t leave that dreaded kink in your hair like those little elastics do! Plus, they come in a variety of colours and patterns so you can mix up your look! I mainly wear mine around the house or when I’m out running errands but you can actually dress up your look with a cute scrunchy and a messy bun! These babies are here to stay!
High-End Blow Dryer
This is a serious MUST and so worth the price tag. I know that this can seem like a scary purchase at first as quality hair dryers can come with a bigger price tag but they’re honestly worth every dollar. Not only do they last so much LONGER than the cheaper ones but they also save you TIME (which this mama needs) and they typically come with more temperature control which helps to help protect your hair as they low heat you can use (in the shortest amount of time) is best!! I’m absolutely in LOVE with the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer for a few reasons, it drys my hair so fast, it’s QUIET and lightweight and it comes in a few different colors, but my fave is their white/silver colour combo … obviously! LOL!

Avoid Washing Your Hair Daily
Washing your hair every single day strips your hair of its natural oils which leads to dry hair and more breakage, plus, it also dries out your scalp!! This is no bueno in my books (I need all the help I can get with these locks of mine!) so I try to go as long without washing my hair as humanly possible but I end up washing it on average, about every second day. The longer you can go without, the better!
Invest in Quality Shampoo and Conditioner
There’s nothing better than finding a shampoo and conditioner that make your hair feel (and smell!) AMAZING!! My current favourite combo is the Davines Nounou Shampoo and the Davines Melu Conditioner! This combo leaves my hair feeling so nourished and silky smooth!!
