I’m sure by now you’ll know that I have bleached blonde hair and that finding the right haircare routine can be tricky for us blondes. However I think I have nailed my air dry routine, IGK is one of my go-to hair brands at the moment, all the products seem to work for my blonde hair. Every single IGK product is Vegan, cruelty & gluten free, has UV and Heat protection and is free from Petrolatum, Mineral oil, Parabens and Sulfates. #NOBORINGHAIREVER
IGK have just launched their newest product to their already incredible line up. Let me introduce you to No More Blow*, an air dry spray. At first I thought, how can a spray dry your hair for you, but honestly this can of magic is going to change your life, seriously.
On average my hair takes up to over an hour to dry naturally and I really like to try to limit the amount of heat products I use on my already dry ends. The advanced flash cooling technology behind No More Blow is genius and I applaud the guys behind IGK. The technology is weightless and the invisible starches help to dry the hair faster, resulting in less bending, frizz and breakage – which is exactly what my hair needs.
I take my hair in sections to apply No More Blow and make sure every strand of hair is covered. No More Blow also controls frizz which is ideal for me, my hair is super crazy when it’s left to dry in its natural state, this just helps to calm it down. I have taken some before, during and after pictures of my process with No More Blow, you can see that my hair is a lot more manageable and frizz-free.
Moisture is my hairs best friend, it just soaks it all up and it’s always after more hydration. I use Thirsty Girl* leave in conditioner everyday before I style my hair but in conjunction with No More Blow also.
I let my hair air dry with No More Blow, then when it’s still a little damp I go in with Thirsty Girl. I use Thirsty Girl mid-length to ends, making sure all my problem areas such as split ends are coated.
Thirsty Girl leave-in conditioner uses a patented Hyaluronic acid technology that forms a rich moisture barrier for deep hydration and protection. I love the pure coconut milk that thirsty girl also has in it, it helps to smooth, nourish and strengthen the hair – it also smells amazing.
My hair is so dry at the moment, due to bleach that I almost always reach for Mistress too. Mistress* is an anti-frizz hair balm (formally known as a hydrating hair balm). This calms down any frizz and fly always but also because of the gel consistency it really hydrates my hair also. Mistress also has natural coconut oil that detangles, tames frizz and softens the hair.
To keep my hair free from brassy tones I also reach for Mixed Feelings* leave-in toning drops. These concentrated purple pigment drops can be mixed with any styling product or leave-in conditioner – I use these mixed with mistress. Mixed Feelings is infused with prickly pear cactus extract to soften and add shine.
I can’t leave my hair completely heat free and I do reach for the hair straighteners to get the look I desire. However once my hair is straight I use Beach Club* spray to add texture and grit to my freshly washed hair.
I do this air dry routine after my shower in hope to control my crazy strands.
