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.
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 with Sarah Ethel Hair. Sarah is amazing at what she does. She really knows her stuff when it comes to hair and I am always so glad to leave my hair in her trusty hands.
I have been getting Gold Fever hair extensions for years now and cannot recommend them enough. They don’t ruin my hair like other extensions and my hair grows underneath perfectly fine. I get asked on DM’s all the time about them. You need to go to a consultation with a Gold Fever stylist to get Gold Fever Hair extensions. They will match you with colours, talk lengths and prices. Prices always depend on how much hair you use and length.
I transformed my hair from blonde to balayage three years ago and I have never looked back. I remember being so nervous about the change but it’s the best thing I ever done. I had never been DARK on top as I was always quite fair so it was a big change for me personally. My root now is actually my natural root with blends of blonde. I got my colour done in The Hair Lounge in Swords by Kelley M. I absolutely love the colour and Sarah blended the Gold Fever Hair extensions so well. Sarah then cut my hair up as I decided I wanted to be short again.
All of the below photos I have Gold Fever Hair Extensions in my hair.
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 Young Again Masque. I was using the Eleven Australia brand but have went back to Kevin Murphy as you really just can’t beat it. It leaves my hair so silky and soft. It’s not the cheapest now (23euro) 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.
NOTE: To make everything completely transparent, I get my extensions from Gold Fever directly and Sarah Ethel applies them for me in return for social media promotion. This is not a paid sponsored collaboration.
Happy styling 🙂
