Today's post will be a little mingle-mangle of a lot of hair related matters. First of all it's a post about my hair routine and thus a post showing you what I do to my hair to keep it bouncing. But then it's also a "Tried and Tested" post, including reviews about the hair products I use and about my new hair straightener. Last but not least it is also an article on my two favourite hairdos and will thus include the requested tutorial on how to make a perfect bun. Let's start off with my hair routine:
This is my favourite hairdo number one. Straight and easy, the perfect hairstyle for every hairlength.
1. Schwarzkopf Schauma Color Glanz Farbschutz-Spülung - a conditioner for coloured hair: I'm using this conditioner as I had tinted my hair last summer and the colour still hasn't gone. If it's all used up I will probably get myself a deep conditioner for long hair in order to care for my hair even better.
2. Yves Rocher Brown Reflexes Shampoo with china bark: One of my favourite shampoos so far, read a review about it here.
3. L'Oréal Paris Studio HotStraight: my favourite heat protection so far. It will be empty soon so I might get this one as a spray next.
4. Balea Oil Repair hair oil: I had heard a lot about repair oils but most of them were way to expensive so I chose to get this one at the drug store dm. It smells really good and makes my hair look way more healthy and also makes it easier to primp.
5. Schwarzkopf 3 Wetter taft 10-Karat-Glanz Haarlack - a glamour hairspray: I don't use hairspray to make special hairdos so the strenght doesn't matter but I simply use it as a finish so this sparkling hairspray is just perfect.
My new hair straightener I got as an early birthday present from my mum. My sister has a Philips hair straightener as well and I found it was a really good one so I chose a Philips one as well. Of course I had heard a lot of good things about the famous ghd but this one is just as good and doesn't even cost half as much.
The straightener has an even heat distribution and you can individually adjust the heat (I straighten my hair at 160°C/320°F which is perfectly enough). I think the size is just perfect as I often also use it for my bangs.
My blow-dryer is from the brand Braun and allows you to choose between 4 heat regulations. I'm really satisfied with it as well.
And now I will finally come to the tutorial on how to make the bun. It is in fact really easy and everybody with at least shoulder-length hair will be able to do it:
...and tie the remaining hair over the sponge, fixing it under the sponge with a hair tie or some barettes. Fix the whole thing with hairspray and you are done.
So that was if for my hair related post. I hope you liked it and it was helpful for you.
