hairy affairs

July 8, 2014
Finally – I am back! Actually, my last exam took place on friday already, but since the weather was beyond beautiful during the whole weekend and there was such a lot to organize (after weeks of studying there was a ton of stuff that had been set aside) it is only today that I finally found some time for the real important things in life: painting my nails, cleaning out my closet and giving my hair a special treatment. When I was younger I used to change my hair shampoo like weekly, I had never heard of conditioner and I was of the strong opinion that hair masks were completely overrated. But from the moment I started highlighting my hair even I realized that something had to change. However, over the past few years I have developed a routine that I stayed with because I felt my hair deserves better, especially during summer. With shampoo I have never been too picky, but when it comes to conditioner and masks there are very few products I let into my hair: Vidal Sassoon’s Repair products are my choice for everyday care – I use both the conditioner and the 1-minute-mask alternately and mostly in my hair tips to prevent it from becoming to heavy and thereby flat. Every few weeks I treat my hair with John Frieda’s sheer blonde mask which is extremely nourishing and leaves the hair perfectly smooth and heavenly smelling…

What are your favorite hair products? Have you tried these Vidal Sassoon products?

hair // beach waves

March 16, 2014
There is no better way to style your hair than wearing natural looking beach waves. Girls like me whose hair is flat and straight if we do not use a flat iron or a hair curler, we long for these waves and would give a lot to get them. But I guess that is mostly caused by the always-wanting-exactly-the-opposite-of-what-we-have phenomenon, because I know enough girls with the most beautiful curls who get up extra early to straighten out every single wave! Anyway, I have tried everything from simple curlers to heat rollers to a normal hair curler and I have come to the conclusion that the best and simplest way to receive dream waves is the flat iron version! I know, it is not exactly the healthiest method for your hair, but I only use the flat iron on special occasions, so it should not do too much damage – plus, I always use heat protection spray! 🙂 This tutorial helped me a lot, it needs some exercise, but the result is amazing!
