This just in: 60% off NUME flat irons with code IRON60
There should be an MTV True Life about how I never truly gave myself a decent blowout until this morning. Swear to God. 28 years old and I just could-effing-not figure out how to use the round brush to my advantage. Strategic use of a dryer? Forget it. I toss my head over and fry my hair ’til it’s a big ball of frizz. And then I straighten it ’til it’s so brittle it breaks. Repeat 2x a week.
Typically, when I find a routine that works, I stick to it. This includes but is not limited to beauty products. Why switch shampoos when the one you’ve been using since 8th grade cleans your hair? Seemed logical and easy enough for me. Until earlier this week when a plethora of hair products showed up at my door. It happened to be the perfect storm of new products so I figured I’d give them all a go in one morning. If I hated how my hair turned out I’d just chalk them all up to crap. Again, super logical.
So, this morning I put Drybar’s Sake Bomb shampoo and conditioner to the test, as well as their new leave-in conditioner. In all honesty, I’ve never been a huge fan of their products – I can always feel that there’s product in my hair and the next day there’s a ton of residue. I’m a 2-day hair kinda girl so I like my hair feeling as light and product-free as possible. Going in, I had no expectations but was very pleasantly surprised by how light, soft, and flowy my hair has been all day. Attributing this to both the shamp/conditioner duo and the leave-in conditioner that is residue-y in no way, shape, or form. 10 outta 10 for these three.
Because my hair was so soft it made drying way easier. Typically, I’m working with something that mirrors the texture of wet straw so this was a welcomed surprise. It made me want to pretend like I knew what I was doing with a round brush.
Finally, my favorite part: murdering my hair with a flat iron. Years ago, my neighbor had a Global Beauty straightener that made the curliest hair perfectly straight. It was like silk. I was never able to find that flat iron for retail and consequently, have never had silky straight hair like that since high school. Until this NUME Megastar flat iron made its way into my life. It’s a game changer. Not shitting you. With one swipe, straight hair. No more of this going over it two or three times bullshit. It saved me at least 15 minutes this morning and my hair hasn’t looked this good since those Global Beauty days. Am I comfortable saying this is the best flat iron I’ve ever owned? Absolutely. And it actually makes me excited to wear my hair straight instead of just getting through Day 1 hair to have something more texture-y for Day 2. If you’re in the market for a new flat iron, this one is currently 60% off with code IRON60. I’m prone to static and flyaways so I put a dime size of Kerastase oil in my hand and work it through the bottom of my hair and then add some Pret a Powder to my part to add a little volume.
And there you have it. Your best blowout ever. The end.
On Day 2, keep it fresh with a cap, then beach curl it up, and add a little dry shampoo to soak up the excess oil.
