My hair care routine is generally pretty simple, especially while traveling. I don’t want to bring a whole suitcase full of products (which I could easily do), so I narrow it down to the basics of what I need for the occasion and what type of weather I’ll be heading to. Most of the time when I’m home, I let my hair air dry and sleep with it wet, which helps keep additional heat off of it since I curl it so often. When traveling, there are many different factors that go into it- I’m up working later than usual and my hair reacts differently to the weather/water where I’m staying -so I rely on blow drying and a few products in the morning to keep my hair soft and glossy.
Using a T3 dryer is a little bit life changing. I know that sounds dramatic, but it’s true! As someone with really thick hair, I always dread blow drying my hair because it can take forever if I’m using a not-so-great dryer. I also worry about the damage from the heat and creating little fly aways and broken hairs. The reason a T3 is better than others? Well, for starters, it dries my hair faster and leaves it smooth and shiny- not puffy and dry. It’s definitely worth the investment. (plus it has a dual-voltage, so you can use it in any country as long as you have the necessary adapter)
I’m not really brand loyal with the hair products I’m using and switch them up every few months. My most recent discovery and obsession is Lea Journo. I’ve been using her Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner as well as her Gloss Cream and French Plum Oil. The products smell amazing and keep my hair healthy and hydrated. The gloss cream is definitely my favorite (I put it in after I get out of the shower) because it adds extra shine and keeps it frizz-free.
I’ve been using a wide tooth comb (I just buy them from Walgreens or whatever drugstore is closest) for years and can’t imagine using anything else. Even when I’m at a salon getting my hair done, I ask for them to use a wide tooth comb and just their hands. It has helped my hair grow longer because it doesn’t leave broken hairs from tangles and brushing too hard.
I have a few upcoming hair videos (and beauty!) that I will be posting soon as well. If you have any suggestions of videos you would like to see, feel free to let me know in the comments below or shoot me an email [email protected] xx
