HOW ABOUT THEM HOUSTON ASTROS BABY!!!! #EarnedHistory #EarnedHistory #EarnedHistory
It’s been such a whirlwind of emotions from launching my own business (#ICYMI) to participating in NaNoWRImo (aka basically a challenge that inspires authors to write 50K words in one month) to Astros winning the WORLD SERIES for the first time in history. So basically, madness!
Which leads me to the truth: Ain’t nobody got time to wash, blow and style. These last couple weeks I’ve been all about extending the life of my hair for as long as possible. Like during the entire World Series and all of it’s Minute Maid Park watch parties that didn’t get me home until 2 a.m. every night and the Championship Parade that left blisters on my feet from walking across midtown to downtown and back because #Houston. Ah, good times.
Typically I can make my hair go ~4ish days before washing it again but this time I was aiming for 6-8 days. I tried the dry shampoos, wasn’t touching my hair, put on the hats (luckily, I had a great new hat in my closet). Basically any and every trick I could find on Google to keep my hair clean for as long as possible. It wasn’t until I was hanging out with hairstylist Brandi from Purity Rae Salon did I realize what I was doing wrong in the first place. To keep your blow out blown out for as long as possible, it literally starts in the shower!
These are her blow out tips to keep your hair clean and styled for an entire week:
- Shampoo your hair TWICE and then condition it.
- When blow drying your hair, start with hot heat but end with cold air to really lock in your style.
- Use bio iconic products. Hair + technology.
- Apply the “spot treatment” method with products using very little and only to the sections of your hair that need the most control.
And that my friends is how it starts. Check out Purity Rae Salon on Instagram (@Purity_Rae) for some before and after pics of my hair that will leave you gasping. Swear, it was that bad.
