Tressed To Kill

One of my firm beauty beliefs is that a girl's hair is a worthwhile investment. Unlike sky-high stilettos or La Perla lingerie which emerge from the wardrobe for special occasions only, your tresses are the style piece you wear every day. With a little time & some key haircare tools & products, you're well on your way to ensuring that bad hair days are a thing of the past!

Take time to find a hairdresser you click with, it's a relationship that may well outlast many others! A great hairdresser will spend the time discussing colour and cut options with you and will advise which suit your face best. Considering they work with hundreds of different faces & hairstyles, the advice is well-founded & valuable - listen up!

In addition to regular trims & colour maintenance, treat your hair monthly with an ultra-nourishing hair mask like the Restorative Hair Mask by Morrocan Oil. Intense treatments such as this one are packed with proteins that have been specifically formulated to repair & restore lustre to hair that has been stressed by too much colour treating and heat styling. Pop one on for five minutes while you're shaving your legs next & I challenge you not to notice an immediate difference!

No one, but no one's mane sits perfectly without a little styling! (Don't believe a word from those supermodels who claim to wake up with perfectly tousled waves!) Choose a great styling product that caters to your hair type & the style you're looking to achieve. My thick, kinky waves drink up Moroccan Oil's Hydrating Styling Cream, a rich, leave-in cream that works to eliminate frizz and results in super-soft locks. 

Invest in tools that will make styling (& your life!) easier. Top of my lust-have list is a new ghd air, the latest release from the same hair gods who created the legendary ghd straighteners. A good blow-dry is akin to hair nirvana & this high-powered baby, with it's ionic technology & smooth ergonomic shape will get the job done fast. 

Remember...while it may be tempting to press snooze & catch some extra beauty sleep in lieu of styling time, trust me when I tell you that the confidence you'll get from clean, styled hair will sustain you far more than an extra 15 minutes of fitful sleep. Hello great hair days!
