Curls Made Easy
If you know me personally, you would know my hair is usually in a bun, braids or in an undone, textured mess. Between my job, my shoots, my blogger events and my adventurous outings, the last thing I want to worry about is my hair.
Born with pin-straight hair, I can't help but want some curls once in a while. Growing up, various curling wands and hairsprays did not keep the curls in my hair for more than five minutes.
I'm the kind of woman that's into low-maintenance hairstyles. And after discovering Nexxus New York Salon Care products and Theorie's hair tools, now I am also fond of low-maintenance waves in my hair.
I specifically use the PROMEND Split End Repairing System by Nexxus.
First, I use the Rebalancing Shampoo to cleanse and remove impurities out of my hair. Then I use the Restoring Conditioner that leaves my hair feeling really fresh and soft to the touch. Finally, I apply the Split End Binding Leave In Crème all over my damp hair and air dry.
I have a lot of split ends and this regimen helps seal and smooth each broken hair fiber. This whole process preps my hair for the perfect waves.
After letting my hair air dry, I comb it to get rid of the tangles and part it down the middle. Then I apply the Heat Protecting Mist by Nexxus. My hair is finally curl ready.
I specifically use Theorie's Quantum Switch Curling Wand.
Using the 25MM Barrel Size, I take small sections of my hair and wrap it around the wand away from my face. Some people alternate the direction of the curls but as a personal preference, I like when the curls go in one direction. I continue this process until every piece is curled and surprisingly enough, it only takes me about 10 minutes.
I finish off my low-maintenance waves with the Comb Thru Finishing Mist by Nexxus that gives my hair a flexible hold and volume.
I hope you guys enjoyed this long read as it is my first ever beauty post on the blog.
There will be more to come!
