First of all, I am not a hair genius. Skin is my thing (esthetician probs) and I know how to handle my fine frizzy curly hair. I also only wash my hair twice a week, partly because I despise the chore but mostly to avoid extra damage! Now on to my experience with these products...So even if this hair dryer and straightening iron weren't so gorgeous (ROSE GOLD!), I'd still love them. The hair dryer is actually better for your hair than air drying- it has three heat settings and a cool blast button (this seals cuticles FYI), as well as negative ions to speed up the drying process while eliminating static and frizz. The straightening iron uses ceramic plates (the only material you want to flat iron your hair with!), and has five heat settings, which I LOVE. My Chi only has one heat setting so I very rarely use it. I have super fine, naturally curly hair so high heat is not needed and is really damaging for fine hair! I mainly use the straightening iron to flatten out my curls and add some messy waves :) You know ya girl loves some messy, tousled hair, and this tool is perfect to achieve that! I've included pictures at the end of this post showing how I've styled my hair with these two items...
My current favorite hair care products:
Malibu Blonde Shampoo & Conditioner - These two keep my blonde from turning that ugly brassy color PLUS they add moisture and amino acids. They are also vegan and don't contain any nasty chemicals. Bonus! They smell like Hawaii 🌴
Redken Blonde Idol Mask - Obsessed. I use this after I shampoo & condition to add some extra moisture and shine. I love the silky, gel-like texture. I leave it on my hair for about 10 minutes for best results.
Moroccan Oil - I add a teeny teeny bit of this from my mid-shaft down to the ends before blow drying to add some moisture and combat frizz. I swear it also speeds up the drying process!
