My Guide To Frizz-Free, Straight Hair

Top 3 Hair Products

Today I thought I would share with you my top 3 products that I use if I'm going to straighten my hair. These products help to make my hair as soft and as shiny as it possibly can be!
I have naturally wavy/curly hair, so when it comes to straightening my hair, it unfortunately requires a lot more time and effort. I don't straighten my hair that often, as I know the heat is not good for my hair, so I usually will just let it dry naturally and have it wavy. However, on the odd occasion, when I want my hair to look relatively presentable, I will straighten it.

First of all, I wash and condition my hair and then put it up in a hair turban for around 20-30 minutes, until it is damp. Always make sure that you wash your hair under cold water, (for as long as you can bear!) after washing your hair, as this makes your hair shiner and helps to reduce frizz. 
Then I take my hair out of the hair turban and spritz it with the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-in Conditioner spray. This stuff makes my feel super soft and healthy and also makes it smell amazing . This is great to use as it not only protects your hair from heat damage, but it also detangles your hair and makes it easier to brush out. 
Then I apply a very small amount of the Salon Chic So Smooth Shine Serum. (When I say to use a small amount of this, I mean a small amount! If you use too much it can make your hair feel oily and look greasy). My hairdresser actually recommended this to me as she uses it herself. I like to use this as it helps my hair to feel sleek and helps to smooth out any frizz. 

Before blow-drying my hair, I spray it all over with the TRESemm√© heat defence styling spray. I use this to protect my hair from any heat damage from using the hairdryer and straighteners. This also helps to reduce frizz and add shine.

To brush my hair, I use the GhD Paddle brush and the straighteners that I use are the black GhD Platinum styler. These are really good and they are great to use as they are much safer and better for your hair. They literally glide through my hair and straighten it so quickly, and funnily enough, they are recommended for 'hard to style hair'- aka wavy/curly hair!

I hope that you enjoyed this post and maybe picked up some ideas! Let me know what your top hair products are!

Love,

Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt & Contour Kit

Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit Ultra Fair

When I first saw Makeup Revolution's Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit a few months back, I immediately thought it would be perfect for me with travelling back and to, to University and also with my upcoming holiday. It is perfect for travelling as it contains 3 products in 1 packaging, and it is small and portable. I couldn't believe this kit was only £3.50 from Superdrug, given the fact you get a bronzer, highlighter and a blusher.

 The kit contains a small rectangular mirror at the top of the inside lid which again is handy for on-the-go. However, as the mirror is so small, it's not really that functional. I picked up the shade Ultra Fair C01 as it looked perfect for lighter skin tones like mine.

I would describe the bronzer as a light matte shade, which is perfect for my skin tone. The highlighter is beautiful as it is a shimmery champagne shade. It applies very smoothly and is extremely pigmented. I was most excited to try the blusher in this kit, as it has been referred to by other beauty bloggers as a dupe for the 'Nars Orgasm' blush. It is a gorgeous shimmery peachy-pink shade, and again it is very pigmented.
All the products are very easy to blend and have great pigmentation and for £3.50, you can't really go wrong with this! I love it for travelling or when I'm travelling back home from Uni for the weekend.
