I’m not good at doing hair. It’s just not my thing. Any time spent blow drying, curling or straightening is done under duress. And if I’m in a rush, my hair is the first thing to be sacrificed. A messy bun is a common occurrence. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for lazy day hair products. Things which make my life easier. Hacks, tricks and products which will speed things up and make it less effort for me.
Last year I tried Kerastraight. A salon treatment which lasts for 4 months or so. Taming frizz, making hair less susceptible to humidity. And cutting blow drying time down considerably. I was totally converted.
Kerastraight seems to be super effective for my hair. So I’ve had it done three further times. And have to admit it makes life so much easier. My previously frizzy and colour / heat damaged hair looks miles better. All with minimal effort from me, win!
Finding a hairdresser I love has been a game changer too. I go every six weeks without fail and keep up trims / treatments. My hairdresser always knows about the latest treatments and techniques, which will suit my hair.
When I’m elbow deep in nappies and sleep deprived, I’ll have even less time to bother doing my hair. I felt like a change and so decided to get a fringe cut in. Allowing me to wear it up without it looking too harsh around my face. I’m enjoying my new hair cut and have been trailing some new products to go with it. Perfect for lazy hair days (and new Mums without live in glam squads).
Lush Dry Shampoo
I was recommended No Drought by a friend, who raved about it. It’s about a fiver, but a little goes a long way. So I’ve found it to be better value than other dry shampoo. I love that it’s a natural alternative to the typical aerosols. And it smells amazing!
The powder is oil absorbing, so it refreshes hair instantly and gives volume. The only negative is the colour, as it’s so white I need to add it slowly and really comb it in. To avoid turning my hair grey.
No Drought feels a lot less heavy and sticky in the hair. So it’s quickly become my go-to dry shampoo.
EVERPRO Beauty Zero Grey Root Makeup
My hair is naturally now a more mousy brown colour. So whilst my roots aren’t drastic, they are certainly noticeable. I was sent two products from the Zero Grey range to try. Both aimed at brunettes and covering up roots or grey hairs, in-between salon trips.
These have been a life saver for me, when having my Kerastraight treatment. Kerastraight strips colour from your hair, so I have the treatment first and follow up with a colour the next time. Zero Grey is fab for hiding the discolouration if I want to go out or make more of an effort with my hair.
Zero Grey Magnetic Powder
The magnetic powder looks like an eyeshadow. And is put on using a cushion applicator. I love this powder for applying to the roots and anywhere near the scalp, as it’s more precise. This neat little console includes a mirror and the applicator, so is perfect for putting in your handbag.
Zero Grey Temporary Root Concealer
The root concealer spray can be applied all over and combed in. Whilst this can also be used on the roots, I like using this in addition to the powder, to hide discolouration.
