So many of you mail me on Facebook and Instagram every day asking about my hair so I felt a need to dedicate a post solely on my hair.
Firstly for those of you that don’t know, my hair is not real. I WISH IT WAS but it’s not. I have Gold Fever hair extensions in at the moment and get them done in Zero One salon in Greystones. I get my colour done there too and have been going to the salon for a year now. Like most girls, they take pride in their hair and I trust them 100% with my colour as my hair is really important to me. Check out their price list HERE for full details.
I transformed my hair from blonde to balayage last year and I remember being so nervous about the change. I had never been DARK on top as I was always quite fair so it was a big change for me personally. Needless to say I was thrilled with the transformation is an understatement. I got my length cut up shorter too which was nice. Sharon was the colourist and she got it so right. I came away so happy with my new look which not everyone can say that about a hairdresser 😉 Edel is the stylist in Zero One who does my extensions and I cannot fault her, she is such a perfectionist which I love. This is a photo of my hair before and after the extensions.
I use my LanaiBLO hairdryer to blow dry it which I haven’t been able to let go of since I got it. It is a Professional Grade Hairdryer suitable for you and I. We no longer need to head to the salon for the perfect blow as we can literally DO IT AT HOME now. I cannot live without it. Wearing Gold Fever extensions, I need a hairdryer that could dry them quick and this is exactly what the LanaiBlo hairdryer has been doing. I used to spend at least 40mins drying my hair, now it’s done and dusted in as little as 15 minutes.
The dryer also has a cold shot feature. With this, you can lock in the look you have spent your time creating with heat by quickly cooling the temperature of the air being generated by your dryer, cooling your hair and setting it in place. Another industry insider secret 😉 The LanaiBLO Tourmaline crystal components help to seal in moisture to counteract frizz. You can BUY IT HERE.
WHAT I USE TO CURL MY HAIR?
And the answer is…….two things. A Remington Ultimate Silk Styler and the Instyler. The Instyler is a rotating heated polishing cylinder, with four rows of precision-aligned bristles. The first set of bristles gently sorts and separates each individual hair strand. Then the rotating heated polishing cylinder gently glides over your hair, smoothly polishing and styling each strand. It’s so easy to use and after a few attempts you won’t even need to think about it. You can buy one HERE.
The Remington Silk Styler has a ceramic coated barrel for even heat distribution and its 25mm split barrel tong lets you create multiple looks with one wand. It heats up to 230°C in just 30 seconds, so you can use it immediately. It takes time to get the hang of using it, but after if you follow the steps below you will have boho-chic waves in just a few easy steps.
HOW TO GET WAVY HAIR – The key to getting the perfect wavy hair is holding the Remington wand facing downwards to whole way around your hair so the curls all fall the same way. When you do this, leave for a few minutes before brushing the curls out gently with a paddle brush. Brush your hair very slowly as you don’t want it to go really big, you want a nice wave. Flip your head forward and brush. I guarantee you, you will get the perfect at home blowdry with it.
When it comes to products, it’s all about sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. I use Mades Haircare which I buy online from BeautyMatters.ie or sometimes if they have it in Mc Cabes Pharmacy. I personally ADORE it. It leaves my hair so silky and soft. It’s not the cheapest now but sometimes you need to just pay that bit more for a really great shampoo and conditioner.
So there you have it. All about my hair, what I use and how I do it. I hope that answers some of your questions guys.
