As pathetic as it sounds one of my biggest concerns over the last couple of months has been my hair – 1st world problems right?! It’s a small issue really but I figured I also can’t be the only person struggling with this! And my hair is a bit of a touchy subject for me!
I used to have really long hair and have since been trying to regrow it from a bob back down to my waist. 2 years on it’s not getting much beyond my shoulders. The problem isn’t my diet it’s down to exercise. For the last 18 months I have exercised pretty much every day, this means I sweat and that means I need to wash my hair daily. And as we all know that’s not good 🙁 that combined with living in England (AKA the land of damp and drizzle = frizzy hair) means that I have to blow dry my hair daily, and having naturally wavy crazy colour treated (and probably damaged) hair I have to straighten it afterwards to make myself somewhat presentable! You can only imagine how much damage all of this washing and heating is doing to my hair. Like I said it seems like such a small problem but it’s hard not to fixate on something that upsets you, and I have spent HOURS searching the internet trying to break the back of this and eureka I think I am finding some solutions! And I thought I would share my discoveries with you all!
My first experiment has been with this amazing product I got from Lookfantastic. It’s called Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight by Aveda. and it definitely does what it says on the tin! Formulated with organic cassava root the serum helps to form a barrier against intense humidity to avoid frizz. I have been conditioning my hair before shampooing lately and I have to say this has helped my hair feel cleaner, then I wrap it in a towel for about 5 – 10 minutes, then I rub this serum through my hair, and then I blow dry. Since using this I have been able to use my hair dryer on the coolest setting – something never previously possible due to the thickness of my hair this would have taken hours and would have been the equivalent a person blowing on my hair! As I generally use my GHD’s to take out the frizz, there is absolutely no need to straighten my hair after blow drying. However, if I wanted poker straight hair I would still use them, but that may be down to my blow-drying skills and rather than the product itself. I much prefer a frizz-free natural hair style which shows how thick my hair is, so tend to use my fingers to tousle my hair when drying rather than using hairbrushes etc.
I think it’s key to point out that products aren’t miracle workers you must still eat a clean and healthy diet to give your hair all of the right nutrients to be shiny and lustrous! The hair product is something to give you a helping hand 🙂
I would completely recommend this product to anyone who is having problems with frizzy hair as it has really helped! I also received a second product from lookfantastic which I will trialling over the next month – look out for my review in a month’s time….
