My Everyday Hair

When I was asked to work with ghd a few weeks ago I was over the moon. My ghds have been a mainstay in my hair routine since I was 16. I was asked to choose a product to review (I chose heat protection spray because my hair gets hit with a lot of heat as you can see!) and use the product to create my own individual style. Which was where I got a bit stuck. You see, I'm not very creative at doing my hair. I've basically been doing my hair the same way for years. I struggled for weeks thinking of how I could do my hair in new and interesting ways for the review, but then I decided well, I might as well show you how I do my hair
every day! Because let's be honest, I'm not a complicated hair kinda girl. First off, my kit.
Left to right: Babyliss Pro Perfect curl, hairspray, Tangle Teezer, sectioning clip, ghd heat protection spray, round brush, ghd straighteners, Babyliss Boutique Hairdryer.

My kit is fairly simple, but I think I've finally found my perfect collection of hair appliances. For Christmas, my Mum bought me my Tangle Teezer and hairdryer, which is absolutely amazing and can dry my super-thick long hair in about 5 minutes. Of course, I love my ghds and I've had these for about 3 years now. If you want to find out more about my Babyliss Pro Perfect Curl, see this post.
Okay, this is my just-washed hair, given a bit of a comb through with my Tangle Teezer.
Then a spray all over with ghd heat protection spray. I am really bad at remembering to use heat protection spray but I dry my hair about once every two days and straighten or curl it three or four times a week, so it's definitelt a product I need to use. This ghd one is great because it's light and doesn't feel sticky or like it's weighing my hair down. Plus as a long-time ghd owner I trust their products! You can also use it on wet or dry hair, which is perfect for me as I often use heat on my hair when it's already dry.
Next step is just a blow dry until it's about 90% dry and I just brush it through with my fingers as I go. Sometimes I give it a comb through again with my Tangle Teezer as I go if it's extra knotty.
Post-drying hair. It's a little messy, so then I neaten it up with a round brush,
Section it up.
And dry each section with a round brush. I tend to do two or three sections in layers on each side of my hair.
So this is my hair after drying and then with a round brush. This is the point where I either go straight or curly. If I'm going straight, I just section my hair back up again and straighten each section with my ghds. But today I decided to go for curly.
Next stage is simply to curl my hair. You can see how I do that in my video here. It's dead simple with the Babyliss Pro Perfect Curl. I just section it as before and hairspray each section after curling.
Finally, I just straighten my fringe with my ghds...
And I'm done!

I hope that was useful! I'm not very good at complicated hair and I like to keep it simple. I'm a sock bun and go kinda girl most of the time, but this was actually really fun to do. Maybe next time I'll do a video!
