Happy Monday friends! It’s already August 14th and quite honestly, I have mixed emotions about it. On the one hand, I’m gonna seriously miss the summer. Hot weather, ice cream cones as big as my head, reading in my backyard, hiking with my dog and just being outside and soaking up the sun. But the one dreaded thing that comes with summer, at least for me, is frizzy hair. Some of y’all are lucky and do not ever experience this (bless you and your perfectly straight hair genes). I cannot make the two minute walk from my car to office without my hair ‘expanding’ – guys, its a problem. So with that said, is it really so surprising that I’m pretty excited for fall? Aka the season of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, chunky knit sweaters, apple cider, colourful leaves, and most importantly – frizz free hair y’all.
Remember how I had some hair growth issues before? Well I’ve taken some necessary steps to *stimulate* hair growth again and guess what – it worked. This means minimal heat + not washing it every day, and using a dry shampoo instead. One I’ve been loving lately is this dry shampoo and conditioner from Voir Haircare. This stuff is a godsend, I swear. That white chalky powder you experience with literally every other dry shampoo? Ya, that’s not a problem here. Plus it instantly boosts volume, mattifies roots, and leaves your hair feeling totally fresh in-between washes.
Another thing I do is give myself a lil pamper sesh with a hair masque. This hair masque and scalp detox from Voir Haircare is BOMB. You put this stuff on your hair after shampoo, and it feels so soft – it’s incredible. It’s creamy yet lightweight, and after rinsing it out, your hair feels silky and supremely hydrated. So on those weeks where my hair needs some extra TLC, I’ll use this masque.
Can we just talk about this branding for a sec please?! You know I’m a sucker for anything aesthetically pleasing and these bad boys are no different. Voir Haircare puts just as much thought into the packaging as the products themselves. Embodying the elements of weather, each nature-inspired design is painted in-house and then digitally rendered onto their labels. Canadian brands have been killing it lately, and Voir Haircare is no different, all products are made in Canada, which is just phenomenal. If you want to get your hands on some Voir Haircare products of your own, you can use the code TERESADESOUZA15 for 15% off (code is good until August 31st and shipping is only available in Canada).
One hairstyle that I’m always wearing (esp. when it hasn’t been washed in a few) is the half bun, so I decided to show you guys how you can also trick your friends / family / co-workers into thinking that you washed your hair:
- Comb hair out with a paddle brush.
- Put dry shampoo in your hair (under the top layer), distributing the product with your hands.
- Clip the top section of your hair and start curling the bottom layers with a 1.5 inch barrel, hairspray when done.
- Gather the top section of your hair and create your bun, the messier the better. Bobby pin stray hairs.
- I like to brush out my curls for a more ~wavy~ look.
And now go about your day, and let everyone think that you’re rocking first or second day hair 😉
