I’ll let you in on a little secret: when it comes to my hair I’m really low maintenance. I’m lucky enough to have the kind of hair that has a bit of texture to it so I can wash and wear it without having to do too much to it. However there are certain things I have built into my hair routine:
I don’t go too long between a cut and colour
I get my hair cut by Renya Xydis at her salon, Valonz in Sydney’s Paddington along with getting my hair coloured (Dan at the salon does my colour) and I try and do this every 6-8 weeks so my hair looks fresh which I find means I don’t need to do too much to it.
I put a treatment in through my hair
If I can I’ll sometimes do a treatment in my hair when I’m at the hairdresser. If I don’t have the time I’ll just buy a leave-in treatment from the supermarket and I’ll just pop it in my hair when I’m washing it.
I don’t use too much product
To get a little body and texture in my hair I’ll use a volume powder when I’m styling it. Also I recently discovered Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray at a photo shoot I was on so I have started using it to help protect may hair from heat damage.
I wear it up or curly
My hair doesn’t require too much fuss so I tend to just roughly blow dry it to get the moisture out of it. Truth be told I don’t have much time to do my hair so most of the time I will just put it up in a ponytail when I’m on the go. Otherwise I find it easier to curl it than blow dry it straight so I just do loose curls or tie it back in a low bun or a top knot.
