Textured, tousled, undone hair has been a popular style choice for many over recent years, but you shouldn't need to damage your hair to give it a go! The low maintenance style is very achievable without using excessive extreme heat, which can end up causing stress and strain to your tresses. Here's how to do it.
Care for your hair
It sounds obvious, but hair needs TLC like the rest of your body. Try opting for a shampoo and conditioner that nourishes from the inside out, like the by Serie Expert. Massage your scalp while washing to promote circulation, and try to apply a luscious hair masque once a week to further replenish. The Absolut Repair range also comes in a , leaving your hair fully reconstructed, soft, shiny and easier to detangle. A quick trim at the hair salon is another way to instantly remove locks that are beyond help!
It's common knowledge that heat damage is a massive culprit when it comes to lacklustre, dry and damaged hair. So, it makes perfect sense to protect your hair before applying any heated tools to it, including your dryer or straightener! We love for this job. This multi-use bow dry cream coats your locks in a very thin layer of argan and almond oil which serves to protect your hair, as well as giving it extra shine, smoothness, nourishment and roughly 96 hours of volume control!
Power in products
As the saying goes, proper preparation prevents poor performance, and this is never more true than when prepping your hair to become its textured best. Allow your lengths to air dry up to 80% before styling with a hair dryer, to minimise the amount of heat needed. Apply texture definition spray before blow drying to create undone French-girl waves with natural shine. We rely on French Girl Messy Cliché spray to achieve those nonchalant tousled lengths with minimal fuss, as well as minimal time needed under heated styling tools! Try braiding your almost dry hair after spraying with Messy Cliché and then drying them with the hair dryer, for even more definition in the waves. Scrunch the lengths to emphasise the desired messy effect and head out the door in tousled perfection!
