Wash and go…on and on. Tomorrow is another day.
“Heaven forbid” says hair-obsessed beauty expert Jo Glanville-Blackburn, but recent research reveals that nearly 70% of us want to spend minimal time on our hair in the morning. Read on to find out how to do it in style…
Smoother for longer
How fabulous that my frizz-prone hair adores the 72-hour Tresemme Expert Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner, R79,99 for 750ml each; I swear you can literally feel the hair silkening in your hands as you rinse. It’s thanks to marula oil particles that keep your style in check, without weighing it down.
Need more volume?
Go for John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7-Day Shampoo and Conditioner, R115,99 for 250ml each, then work in a little Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion, R115,95 for 125ml, that’s heat-activated but builds volume with every use, so you really can extend the life of your shampoo. “Apply to towel-dried hair; blow-dry upside-down for maximum effect,” says top international hairdresser Luke Hersheson.
Have to wash it?
“Then wash it the night before and let it dry naturally,” says hairdresser Lisa Sheperd. “When you wake, your hair may seem unruly but it will style easily!” Apply volumising spray, then use a hot brush such as BaByliss 1000 W Rotating Airbrush, R899. Styling this way allows you to get the best of both worlds: smoothness and volume with relaxed, natural movement.
