If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember this video I posted waaaayyyy back in May and I really did mean to do a follow-up blog post featuring all these goodies before September, but, better late than never, right?
Alright, who else just L-O-V-E LOVES the days you don’t have to wash your hair? Today was one of those days for me and honestly, it was amazing. It’s such a time-saver. I used to wash my hair every single day…seriously, all of the days! Even if I wasn’t going anywhere, I’d wash my hair. Now I throw my hands in the air and do a happy dance when I don’t.
Sometimes when I don’t wash my hair, I can use a spritz (or 20) of dry shampoo and throw it back in a tousled pony and it would be perfect, but other days, I need it to look a little more fresh. Hence, this 2nd day hair tutorial video.
Step 1: Start with a detangling brush to get out alllll the snarls. Not that you have them. But, I do….I have lots of them actually. I follow that with Not Your Mother’s Plump for Joy Dry Shampoo. They have a wide variety of types but I like my hair full, so I’ve just always went with the Plump for Joy. Honestly, I’ve tried a few higher end dry shampoos and the results were, well, fine. But if I’m paying $40 for a dry shampoo…I kinda think it should be more than fine. It should be sprayin’ on some J.Lo tresses or an Ariana Grande pony. Plump for Joy has delivered the same (if not better) results as any of the higher end options I’ve tried.
Step 2: I like to brush and finger comb all the product through my hair. Then brush some more. Then add more product, haha. Repeat as needed.
Step 3: Section hair and flat iron. I sometimes do find I need to add more dry shampoo to certain areas after I straighten my hair. I used to be afraid I was adding too much - and I guess maybe for some hair types, there could be a limit. For mine, I’ve found that more is best.
Step 4: After I straighten, I love using Unite Texturiza throughout. Whereas the Plump for Joy I just keep adding, with Texturiza, a little goes a long way. A small spritz on either side and in back is usually all I need. I like to spray it underneath and finger-comb it through. I don’t really even understand how this “magic in a bottle” works, but it does. It adds a just-right amount of hold plus texture.
Step 5: I use my smoothing brush to really run the variety of products through from roots to tip. I did mention I like body, right? I’ll “fluff” the roots as well, and if needed, use, again from Not Your Mother’s, She’s a Tease Volumizing Hairspray at the roots only. This stuff is actually what made me love the Not Your Mother’s Line. SO GOOD!
Step 6: Lastly, I use the Pixi On-The-Glow stick, just on the lower portion to add a wee bit of shine. This stick is actually multi-purpose - use it on everything from hair to body, so it’s a perfection option for anyone who loves products that do more than one thing. And it makes your hair shine, so total win-win.
