Winter brings dry everything: skin, eyes, hair. LIFE. Humidifiers, copious amounts of oils and lotions, and hair masks are my friend. When eva nyc sent me some products to save my hair and keep it looking tip top during these cold and dreary months and beyond—their therapy session hair mask and mane magic 10-in-1 primer plus the prettiest hair dryer and flat iron, ever—I decided to give you a little tutorial on how I use them, plus a quick demo of how I get loose waves in my stick straight hair (watch the full video here on my IGTV). Hair tutorials are my favorite, so this was such a fun partnership!
As I said before, hair masks are my friend. Not just in the winter—always!—but especially in the winter. I use this in the shower at least two times a week, let it sit for 5 minutes or more, and then wash out. It gives it a deep conditioning and keeps it hydrated. Since I wear my hair up often and use hot tools when it’s down, I have to be careful about breakage. Keeping my hair hydrated and soft with the therapy session mask makes it more flexible and less likely to snap like a bunch of dry pasta.
Heat protectant is an absolute must for me when using any sort of heat styling tools. I have fine and thin hair and can’t afford any unnecessary damage. If you’re not using a heat protectant, you absolutely need to—and I have a great recommendation for you to start with because 1. It’s $12! and 2. It does a lot more than just protect from the heat. The one I’m using in my video is eva nyc’s mane magic 10-in-1 primer: it detangles, reduces frizz, strengthens, softens, cuts drying time, adds shine, nourishes, smooths, protects against thermal damage, and protects against UV damage. Ooh, that’s a lot of things. It makes my hair soft and shiny, and keeps the static frizz away. That’s why I especially love it for Winter days when I want to wear a knit hat! Without a product like this, I look like I just rubbed a balloon on my hair.
So, how do you get flat iron waves? After spritzing with mane magic 10-in-1 primer, divide your hair into sections. Use the flat iron to wave small sections, making a wavelike motion from top to bottom, like this:
Repeat until every section is waved. Watch the full length video tutorial here!
