I'm kind of settling into a pretty regular, consistent hair routine since my last cut. I'm hoping that the next time my hair dresser sees me, he won't scold me again for my love of flatiron-ing.
When it comes to blow drying, I'm not one of those people who can give themselves a blowout . I have no idea how people can be that coordinated. I once saw an ad for a blow out class at a salon, but it was too far away, and I'm kind of thinking I wouldn't be able to do it without step-by-step guidance anyway.
So yes, I dry as quickly as I can with a hair dryer (i.e. the hottest setting + direct hair contact) and all my styling comes from a curling iron or a flatiron. The closest thing to a styling trick is me flipping my head upside down for a little lift, but I have to admit: the only result I get is a head rush from standing up too quickly.
This lotion has been fantastic for cutting my drying time into almost a third I would say. Pretty impressive! It takes me about 5 minutes to go from towel dry to 90% dry, which has saved me so much time in the mornings. Also, I never realized how much damage the heat from my hair dryer was inflicting on my hair - it just...never occurred to me, even though I absolutely use the highest heat setting and aim the nozzle so close to my scalp.
This product gets a heart! <3
