Like most people out there I can't be dropping cash at the salon every day, or even once a week, for a blow out and hair style. Even if I could the style would never last because my crown gets so oily and flat. For me, it's best to invest in products that will just make my hair look like I hit up a stylist on the daily. Nexxus New York Salon Care products contain premium, salon quality ingredients that help me achieve the hair look I'm going for - that "I just got the royal treatment" type of deal!
I'm big on using the Nexxus New York Salon Care products anyway (as I'm sure you can tell if you're a regular reader of my blog) but I changed up the type that I use to the Emergencée regimen, which has a Rebalancing Shampoo and a Restoring Conditioner (formulated with 100% pure Elastin Protein and Marine Collagen). I've been in the pool quite a bit with the kids being off of school and this duo is great for rehabbing damaged hair from within, nourishing and restoring strength.
Once a week I also use the Emergencée Reconstructing Treatment to really knock my hair into submission. Plus, I LOVE that it helps control the Summer frizz. I noticed that in the days after using this treatment I was able to achieve a wavy, bouncy style that generally went to the birds the minute I stepped outside.
For styling purposes I apply the NexxusMousse Plus while my hair is still damp and comb it through. I flip my hair upside down first to dry the crown because it gives me more volume and helps in decreasing the look of oily hair so I can get second day hair the next day. The Mousse Plus has a humidity resistant formula which is absolutely necessary for me in the hot months of the year.
Once my hair is dry and styled I use the Maxximum Finishing Mist because it has a strong hold and will keep my loose waves secure. Make sure as you spray you're holding the can 12-14 inches away from your head - you'll still get the hold that you desire without that crunchy feel.
How do I take this to the next day? With the Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist! You guys know I love me the dry shampoo because it amps up my style for day two but this one is even more awesome because it's ideal for color treated hair. Shake well and hold 8-10 inches away before you spirtz some into your roots. I let it sit for a minute then rub it in and brush very lightly with a wide toothed comb. It smells really good, too!
It takes a village, you guys.
