Hey my lovelies! I love the first few days in the week almost as much as the weekends, and today I'm especially happy because I'm sharing a no-nonsense hair tutorial with you guys that has needed to get itself on here for ages! Here's what's on the docket- deer-in-headlights experssion and all:) :
As funny as it may sound, this is kinda hard to post because it doesn't really feel like much of a tutorial since my hair is just plain and out, but this is showing you my quick and easy way I blow dry my thin hair to make it look thicker and set you up for tons of volume! I can't tell you how many times a day I get people who say, "well I might be able to do that except my hair isn't as thick as yours." Yes it is long, but my sisters it is not thick.haha I'm just good at making it look like it is! And today I'm gonna show you one of the ways I do that:)
This is so stinkin' easy, and so much faster than you might think, and I know it's going to make your life so much easier! I never tease my hair anymore since I started doing this, and because I have the cool infered blowdryer from josé eber I don't worry about heat damage like I used to! Those celebrity blowouts with their round brushes and rollers and clips, etc, etc, 1-3 hours later are nice and all, but when you're talking about real-life busy days there's just no way that's sustainable! I usually only blow dry my hair maybe once a week, and when I do I always use this method, because it's honestly just as fast as a regular blow-dry, but the results are sooo much better and I love starting with a fresh and full-looking head of hair instead of my regular flat head I used to be left with after a shower.haha But lets get on with it!

Tools & Supplies:
Steps 1-3: Start with semi-wet, clean hair, and make sure all your conditioner has been rinsed out (left-over conditioner weighs down your locks!). I usually leave my hair drying in a towel or whatever while I do my makeup so it's not sopping wet when I start to blow dry:) (1) Make sure that you thoroughly comb or brush your hair, but only using a brush if you have a soft-bristle detangling brush like my favorite one from coolway, otherwise you can really damage your hair. (2-3) Next you're going to spray on some heat protectent (my favorite is the tresemme), and comb through your hair a bit more to make sure you have a good even coating.
Steps 4-6: Next is the most important part! well, one of the most important:) (4) You're going to squirt a plum sized amount of the volumnizing mousse (my favorite is the fekkai! I've used a bunch of others and they're too sticky/hardening/flacky/ etc) into your hand, pat your palms together a bit, and (5) evenly distribute it throughout your locks as best you can, (6) making sure to flip your head over and getting your scalp as well.
Steps 7-9: NOW it's the most important part! Attach the narrow nozzle attachment onto your blow dryer (the jose eber inferred is everything for me when it comes to blow dryers!), and (7) start blowing your hair dry by flipping your head over and focusing right at your scalp. When I feel it's getting dry (which happens in seconds with this blow-dryer!) I (8) use my brush to brush all the hair ''down' and away from my scalp. Flipping your head over, (9) finish it all off by squirting a quarter sized amount of the coolway finishing oil for some anti-frizz action and added shine. Just rub it over your hands and run them lightly over and through your hair focusing on any areas (aka the front of my hairline!) where you might have extra frizz, and you're all good to go!
And that's all folks:) Half of the time I'll twist my hair up into a high ballerina bun type thing and leave it in for a few hours, and then when I take it out the ends have an awesome curl to them, but this is really just the basic type of volume I like to have in my hair at all times, and as I said I never tease any more!
So, I hope that this is useful and fun for you in some way, and also it's fun to share some of my favorite products with you guys since that's one of the biggest questions lately I get from you dears, and I'm so glad that you decided to stop by and visit!
I hope you have a great rest of your week, and stop by tomorrow for something really fun I have planned!
