HAIR

I've been getting some questions about my hair: how I style it, what products I use, etc. So I thought I'd do a hair-post!

I made a little video to show you how I get some volume into my hair.


As for products, I don't use that much. The most important thing is that your hair is healthy, so use a nice caring shampoo. I use Gliss with shea butter. I don't use conditioner that often cause it makes my hair heavy and it gets greasy faster. Instead I use a good hairtreatment once a week. I love Bonacure Amino Cell Rebuild (pictured left).

After washing I blowdry my bangs and just blow though the rest not-so-thoroughly. I find it better to let the last bit dry naturally, so it doesn't get completely straight. Then I put some Osis+ Dust It powder (pictured right) on the roots of my hair. Awesome product for volume!

Other things that help my hair:
-Important: always comb your hair BEFORE showering. Your hair breaks about a million times easier when it's wet, so make sure you get all tangles out before you wash it!
-I'm always quite reluctant to getting haircuts cause I'm afraid they'll cut off too much, but a while ago I got my hair cut into lots of layers and I find it so much easier to manage, now. Looks a ton healthier and it seems to be growing faster, too.
-Most of the time I sleep with my hair in a bun to get some waves in there.

Note that my hair is very thin and and smooth and straight, your hair might be completely different, so these products and tips might not work as well for you as they do for me.

If you have any other questions regarding hair or anything else, you can ask me on Formspring or just leave a comment!

i can't believe i never thought of doing that! you're so clever. i pretty much use NO products whatsoever in my hair. i wash it everyday, conditioner and shampoo. if i dont condition it everyday it gets dry and gross really fast, but i think i have thicker hair than you, probably. thanks for the tip about brushing hair before the shower, i never thought of that either!

also: you are adorable

Haha yeah, I'm always amazed that not that many people think about brushing their hair before showering! I never read it in magazines either. I can't image not doing it cause otherwise I'll basically end up ripping all my hair out. I guess when you have thin hair you try as hard as you can not to make it thinner ;)

Ik kam m'n haar alleen net voor het wassen, en nadat het gewassen is kam ik er de knopen heel voorzichtig uit met m'n vingers. En ik ben altijd op zoek naar trucjes om wat volume in m'n uberplatte haar te krijgen, ik ben zelfs een lichte permanent aan het overwegen :D

ik ben een superfan van je stijl! en je bent supermooi :)
