Styling the Tresses

Hi Chicas!

Here I am, as promised with my next post on hair care. To check out the first post, click here. In today's post I am sharing with you some of the coolest hair styling products that I have tried and tested over the years and found useful.

I do not style my hair everyday nor do I recommend anyone else to do it. In fact, if I have the time, I prefer air drying or towel drying over the quick blow dry. However, at times when I want to feel a little fancy, I do style it. When I do so, I am very careful about the products I choose. I am not discussing any specific hairstyles today, but a few products that you would like in your kit before you attempt any elaborate hairdo.

Heat Protectant: I find it very helpful to use a good heat protectant spray or serum before I use any heat on my hair. It is one of the most important products when it comes to styling because it lets me keep my hair safely glued to my scalp amidst all the havoc the styling tools let loose.

TRESemmé Leave-In Spray
Styling Tools: I try using economical styling tools that damage my hair as less as possible and last long. I read a LOT of reviews and do a lot of research before buying any of these because I do not want to be stuck with a straightening iron or curler that makes my hair smoke every time I use it. So far I have been happy with the tools I am using but my old hair dryer is now pretty much in its last stage. It works for me, but for people who need a powerful dryer, I would not recommend this one. My current choice for a powerful yet budget hair dryer would be  Remington T Studio Silk Ceramic Hair Dryer
My Faithful Old Philips Hair Dryer
Remington T Studio Silk Ceramic Flat Iron
Bed Head Rock 'n' Roller Ceramic Styling Iron
Hair Spray: To keep the style set longer. I usually choose a firm hold/high shine spray. I am also partial to a good smelling one!
Dry Shampoos: For the days when I am too lazy to wash my hair and when I want my hair to look a little dishevelled yet fresh. It absorbs the extra oil near the scalp and gives body to limp hair.
Tony&Guy Dry Shampoo and Sebastian Dry Clean
Combs: Last but not the least, I feel combs make a huge difference. On a regular day, I start with a detangling comb and end with a flat brush. I keep a teasing comb, a round brush and a tail comb handy for the fancy hair days. The teasing comb to tease the hair for voluminous styles, the tail comb for dividing the hair for layered styles and the round brush for quick, soft, blow-dried waves.
Hope you found the post useful. Happy styling!
