Dry shampoo and why I love it!

This month’s featured product is my absolute favorite! It’s the dry shampoo from the evo brand, called Water Killer. I tend to have oily hair and scalp, but I lighten my hair, so I don’t like to wash it very often. This product is perfect, it gets rid of the excess oil, is a styling spray, and it gives me a bit of texture (which fine haired people need).

This particular dry shampoo is for straight haired folks only! It comes out with a white color to it, so you’ll have to brush it thoroughly through your hair to get the proper effect from it. I’ll talk about the steps I use on myself, and hopefully, these hairstyling tips will work for you as well.

When I use this product, it’s after I’ve showered and blow dried my hair. I begin by spraying Water Killer along my part, and then I spray it from my part to the ends of my hair. Next, I start at the crown of my head and gently lift up small horizontal sections and spray the product directly at the root. I repeat this until I’ve reached the nape of my neck. I then flip my head over and brush the product through the hair, flip my head right side up, and brush some more. This process assures that my hair will be completely covered.

This technique is also great for prepping hair for a wedding or special event style. Oftentimes, the fine, straight hair has a hard time holding a curl, but using the Water Killer on the hair (along with a great hairspray), will allow for a curl on even the straightest of hairs.
Again, I can’t say enough wonderful things about this product, it’s more than my favorite, it’s one of the products that I can’t live without!

Curly Hair Styling Product Tips

Devacurl Angel Hair Gel for curly hair styling

I absolutely love the Devacurl brand products for curly hair styling! Not only do they do great work on fighting frizz, maintaining moisture, and allowing for incredible shine, they are definitely affordable.

As a hairdresser, my favorite so far has to be the Angel light hold styling gel. I use it on wet hair that I’ve gently towel dried; I put about a half dollar sized amount in my hands and work my hands together. Then I scrunch the hair up (gently) from the tips toward the roots, being careful not to “overwork” the hair because this will cause frizz. Then I’ll put my client under the hood dryer to dry (you could just let your hair air dry).  After 10-15 minutes, I’ll finish up with the diffuser.

The gel acts as a setting lotion, so it’s important to allow the hair to dry completely. Once the hair is dry, you can then feel free to move it around a bit because it has already been set. If you do this too soon, the frizz will show itself, so be patient! Unless it’s going to be a rainy day, you’ll be able to enjoy bouncy, frizz free curls all day. I hope that any of these curly hair tips have been useful. Enjoy!
