Hello my lovelies,
We’re slowing getting into the cold weather and now is crucial for your hair to get all the hydration it needs. I’ve been asked quite frequently how I do my wavy hair and what products do I use for making it shiny and make sure it stays in place. All my secrets will be revealed in today’s post, so if you want to get shiny wavy hair that lasts you more than two days, then keep on reading!
I’m currently writing this post as I am travelling, so I can see all green nature starting to fade into a yellow shade. It’s quite sad that summer will be over, but I’m ready for ice skating in the Winter Wonderland – I don’t miss the frozen toes though. Let’s get your beautiful hair ready for Autumn, shall we?
I’m doing all my beauty shopping on Notino now. Regardless if I post it here or not, all my beauty products are currently purchased from Notino because they are cheaper and they arrive really quick. They have an amazing gift-wrapping option as well – for £5 you can get any product wrapped up. I actually ordered six products last time that came in two cute boxes, but I’ve only paid the £5. You should definitely check out their website – they have so much brand variety, it actually shook me to the core. Imagine making a gift to your special one and making her / him wake up to this! Just have a look at this option of gift wrapping!

How to make your hair wavy… and make it last
Step 1: Wash your hair with professional products
Since I’ve visited my hairdresser in London, I’ve learned that drugstore shampoos contain a high amount of silicon which only gives you the impression that your hair is hydrated and soft. In reality, it’s the opposite: these shampoos and conditioners do nothing to your hair. Our hair needs moisture and vitamins to boost its health, so I started to use professional products such as Moroccan Oil or John Frieda. If you have fine hair, try the Moroccan Oil Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. They are doing wonders to my hair: after two washes I can feel a different texture in my hair and more added volume. Now it’s the time to change your routine and try these amazing hair products. Winter will show no mercy to your hair, so you need all the good stuff on it!
Step 2: Prepare your hair
Your hair will ‘suffer’ from a high degree of heat, so do make sure you protect your hair from it. I’m using a heat resistant spray from Tres Semme that I bought a while ago and it still lasts me!
Step 3: Part your hair
You now want to part your hair. I have fine hair, so I don’t get as much thickness as I would like to. When I part it, I only need to break it into two layers. Go ahead and part your hair according to its thickness.
Step 4: Start curling your hair from the back
Start curling your hair now, but start from the back. I learnt this the hard way, trust me. Lost are the days when I’d start curling from the front towards the end of my hair and their horror stories of leaving straight parts. Take it from me: always curl your hair from back to front.
Step 5 Doing your waves in the right way
Curl your hair by wrapping a strand of hair on the wand. Do not use the its clipper. The clipper makes an anaesthetic mark at the end of the strand, so if your curling wand has it, just stay away from it. It’s easier anyway!
Step 6: Moisturize and lock your hair in place
After you’ve styled your hair and you’re ready to go, don’t forget to moisturize it and apply holding spray. I’m using the L’Oreal Oil for adding moisture and the GHD Holding Spray for locking it in place. They both smell amazing!
I hope my hair routine was super helpful to you! That’s the result after one day of wear!
