Daily Washing IS Bad for You!
Many people give great importance to daily freshly washed hair. Although daily washing of the hair is not always necessary – with its pleasant fragrance, however, shampoo and conditioner are a special experience. A dry shampoo, on the other hand, proves itself one of the others as an everyday hero. After sport or between washes, it cleans not only the hair without the addition of water, but also provides the hairstyle due to its fine powder particles at the same time.
A twist on beach waves. The aim tousled and not too wavy, with hair styled in a side parting. To get the look, do it the day after you wash your hair; otherwise, it makes it harder for the style to last all day. Use a curl barrel iron to create very and I mean very loose waves – not forgetting that all-important heat protection! Then brush it out to make it an almost curl but not quite. It’s sexy bed hair at its best!
The same middle parting was also popular on the Paris FROW with models at Thierry Mugler, but this time is was all about the sleek blow dry. Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner in the shower, finishing off with a cold blast of water if you can bear it! This will close off cuticles and make for a smoother finish. Take hair into sections and spray with a volumizing spray to get the best result. Using a rounded barrel brush, blow-dry the hair in sections.
Sleek middle parting – super straight! Using frizz taming products and smoothing shampoo and conditioners will get you far here. Again, a blast of cold water at the end of your shower will work wonders for post-shower styling. Use the same drying technique as the Thierry Mugler look, but opting for a smoothing styling balm or foam instead of volumizing. Then run straightening irons through your blowdry, finishing off with a shine spritz for a glossy, healthy look.
Easy, effortless, undone – slick back hair at the roots with mousse and tucked behind the ears. Again, hair doesn’t have to be freshly washed to get the most out of the look – simply comb the mousse through with a web comb and finish with lots of spray!
Ponytails are back! Because who doesn’t want a fuss-free do? Easy to achieve and saves time in the morning, slicked back up-do can take you from the office run to drinks with the girls in the evening. Your hair doesn’t even have to be freshly washed! Simply spray some dry shampoo and massage into the roots, massage the product in and comb it out.
High or low? Oscar de la Renta went for a high up everything scraped back pony – secured with a hair tie and finished off with a LOT of hairspray. Mulberry on the other hand took it down low, slicked back softly and cleanly with a middle parting – comfortable but classy.
