If you know me personally, you know I hardly do anything to my hair! Confession: I didn’t even like brushing my hair until I was in college. Yeah, I know. It looked tamed from a distance but it was a rat’s nest underneath. It was for a good reason though! Brushing out my hair instantly turned my semi-curly locks into a frizzy afro. Whatever I could do (or not do) to tame my hair was my go-to hair routine, which coincidentally meant washing and air drying.
Right before my 20th birthday though, I walked into a salon with brunette hair and after a lot of bleach walked out with a beautiful balayage. Even though the hair was a nice change, all I could think of was, “great, now I have to style my hair.”
The bleach obviously damaged my hair a little, so I had to find a way to style my hair without heat on casual days. That’s where these babies came in handy:
Head and Shoulders Instant Relief Scalp Soother
I have dandruff and it tends to spike when my allergies get bad or when there’s a sudden change in weather. It’s unfortunate and very inconvenient, but this product helps on the itchy days! I watch quite a few YouTubers that go four to five days without washing their hair. I would be a dry, itchy mess if I even attempted it, haha! Currently, I wash my hair every other day or sometimes every three days if my dandruff cooperates. I apply this scalp soother in the spots where my head is flaky and itchy. It is safe for color-treated hair and the peppermint complex is soothing to the scalp.
DevaCurl Supercream Coconut Curl Styler
DevaCurl’s curl styler, for one, smells the best out of all the products in his post. I got my small sample from BeautyCon Dallas a while back and I never got to use it until now. What I like about this cream is that it’s lightweight and it really is good at defining the ends of your curls. I even use this product when I apply heat to my hair because it’s so good!
It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product
If you choose to try anything in this post, PLEASE TRY THIS LEAVE-IN PRODUCT. This is such a game changer to the hair game and I don’t know how I went this long without using it. I have uncontrollably frizzy hair, especially when I wake up. This leave-in product totally takes away my frizz and makes my hair so manageable to style with or without heat. Bonus: it’s also a heat protectant!
Not Your Mother’s Beach Babes Soft Waves Texturizing Spray
I’ve used these last two items for years! This is my OG texturizing spray. Whether you want to put it in newly curled hair to make a messy, textured look or put it in a wet bun and let it work its magic, this product will show awesome results! You can find Not Your Mother’s at ULTA, Walmart, Target, Walgreens – practically everywhere. The price point is not so bad either, so pick it up and give it a spin!
TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Hold Hairspray
When I say this hairspray has been through it all, it has really been through IT ALL. From my dance recitals when I was six to even casual date nights with my love, this hairspray reigns supreme! TRESemmé is great at making products that do the job without making your hair look like it has product in it. Some hairsprays make your hair look crunchy and even too perfect at times. The finish of this one, though, is natural and long-lasting! 10 out of 10 – would recommend!
This is my Lazy Girl go-to hair look:
1. Wash hair thoroughly.
2. Coat my hair in It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In.
3. Spray a tiny amount of Not Your Mother’s Texturizing Spray or apply a mousse for texture.
4. Split my hair into two parts and braid. Secure with an elastic and round the ends.
6. The next morning, apply the DevaCurl Supercream to the braids while getting ready and eating breakfast.
7. Before leaving the house, undo the braids! Shake and secure with hairspray!
**** Use the Head and Shoulder’s Scalp Soother during “no wash hair days” when necessary.
