Hi, I’m Rose. And I’m a hair care addict. There, I said it. If you’ve been an avid Gritty Pretty reader (or Beauty Talk listener) for a while, you’ve probably heard me rabbit on about how much I love my hair care routine and how much my hair health is important to me and blah, blah, blah. Well, I hope you aren’t sick of me yet because if there’s one thing I love more than Spring cleaning, it’s a Spring hair reset. Allow me to take you through my (very thorough) Spring hair reset routine.
Step 1: The Cut You know the best beauty editor-approved way to get rid of split ends and hair that is looking a little limp and lacklustre? A haircut. No ifs or buts, this is the only solution. So, my first stop on my hair reset escapade was EdwardsAndCo in Sydney’s Surry Hills. I have long, thick hair that has a very wild natural curl to it (although I like to wear it straight most of the time), so finding a hair expert who respects my hair while shaping it to look its best can be a challenge. EdwardsAndCo has never, ever let me down so I rarely stray from entering under that teal signage. I asked for round layers with an emphasis on face framing and adding volume and shape to the back. No surprises, they nailed it. So, I frolicked out feeling on top of the world.
Step 2: The Treatment Around this time of year is when I like to amp up the at-home hair treatments to bring my hair back to its shiny, healthiest self. In case you’ve been living under a rock: healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp so adding in a scalp-loving serum, scrub or oil to your routine will pay serious dividends when it comes to maintaining your luscious locks. I have been loving the Yours Only MASK for this exact purpose. A super gentle and nourishing formula that works to calm irritated or flaky scalps, I use this product about twice a month to give my hair a real reset. Particularly if I have been styling my hair a lot, I find this product helps to remove build up without stripping my scalp or causing irritation.
