I'd like to thank everybody for the great response and cute comments from last week blogpost, and I hope you will appreciate the following post as well.
This week I'm gonna tell you what types of hair products every goth-boy or girl must have in their bathroom cabinet. Because I know how much you people color, bleach, put in extensions, back-comb and torture your poor hair.
Okay, let's start!
First of all it's very important to use right kind of products for YOUR hair.
Do you have a damaged hair?
Thick and unruly?
Thin and weak?
And ask yourself "What kind of results do you want with the products you're using?"
Shampoo, conditioner and treatmentFor me, it's important to use caring products that rebuilds and moisturize my hair, because I bleach it.
I always shampoo my hair at least two times to wash away the naturally grease from the scalp and the remaining styling products I've used.
Remember that you only need to use shampoo by your scalp (If you haven't used a LOT of products of course) The hairlengths will be washed while you rinse the shampoo out.
When it feels like your hair is clean (and you've got plenty of foam) it's time to start with the caring products.
Squeeze out as much water you can before using the treatment.
Start to apply the product in the lengths and pull your fingers through your hair to get the caring products in the whole hair. (Notice that you shall NOT put the treatment directly to your scalp! Then it will look like you haven't washed your hair in months ^^ )
When your hair is clean and towel-dry it's time to use the styling products.
I use to start by apply some moroccanoil in my hairlenghts.
If I will use the blow-dryer I also add some heat-protection (It can be in spray or creme-form ect.)
If you'd like some volume to your hair, you can apply the volumizing products when you have blow-dried the hair for a while to get the best effect.
I'm a fan of the 80's crimped hair! After I've crimped all my long hair I use "Dust it" from schwarzkopf proffessional.( you can find it at your hairdresser for about 16 euro) massage the product to the roots of your hair, before you start to back-comb it.I'll promise you to get a hair that stays in shape for at least one week if you follow my suggestions and being strictly with the back-combing! Finish your hairstyle with some hairspray- Voila!
The products I'm using:
Dust it - from schwarzkopf professional
Ritual salvation - from EVO
Silver shampoo & silver treatment from Lakmé
Helmut hairspray from EVO
Blond me shampoo, conditioner and treatment with cool tones from Schwarzkopf professional.
Hi, Adora here.
I'm sure this post is highly appreciated by all (as by me).
Remember; my sister is not only beautiful, she is a professional hairdresser and owns her own hair salon, one of the top 3 in Gothenburg (so she's VERY good!)! You can most definite trust her judgement.
I myself wash my hair once every week, and as Iva says I schampo twice (Schwartzkopf), and always adds a bit of my Directions Hair color to the conditioner to maintain the color. I let it set for only 5-10 minutes. Rinse and style as you whish. This is also the way I mix my pastel colors I've had before (soft pink, light purple, babay blue etc.) but I then have it in for 15 minutes. The result:
