All About The Curls - HG curling products


Wow - the sun must be rising from the west. We all know that Adeline never talks about hair. Almost never. That's simply because I'm the most non-creative girl when it comes to hair and I have had my hair permanently straightened yearly since I was 14. (Read about my brief hair history HERE.)

Well, now that my regrowth has outgrown my chemically straightened hair big time and I'm unable to walk out of the house without looking like a haystack - I have joined the curls club and curl my hair whenever I have extra time to spare in the morning. (Read: only Fridays - Sundays). 

My 24th birthday - this is one of the rare moments where I'm extremely enthusiastic and spend 101% time and effort in curling! 
I thought I would share with you girls my HG products to create and maintain these curls! 

My trusty Modiva Curling Iron* previously reviewed HERE.
This is my one and only trusty curling tools that I own! I have a straightener but I gave up curling my hair using one since the last time I tried curling my hair with a GHD, it took me 1.5 hours and it wasn't long lasting. I know right. *roll eyes* I have been using this since I was sent over a year ago and it's still doing a great job!!!

Products used:

Batiste Dry Shampoo in DIVA: My FAVOURITE dry shampoo of all times! This is my second repurchase and will most definitely repurchase again! I use Miss Diva when I'm curling a-day-old-hair just to get rid of any excess oil and also to ensure my hair smells good!

O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray*: The "IT" hair product since 2012 - all you need is a few spritz of sea salt spray, have it up in loose bun for an hour, and you will get gorgeous wavy hair. Except my hair requires more effort than that (most of my waves won't stay due to the fact that it has been chemically straightened!) I often use this on my freshly washed hair before curling my hair to ensure easier formation of the curls. We all know that freshly washed hair ain't exactly the best t work on, don't we? Uhmm, did I mention it smells lovely too? #extrabrowniepoints

O&M Original Queenie / Firm Hold Hairspray*: Original Queenie is the final and most important product before I head out the door (who am I kidding, I gotta check my lipstick and make up for the 56th time and my outfits from 246 angles before rushing to the door). Gorgeous pink packaging, super lightweight, holds your hair FOREVER, non sticky (extra extra stars for this!!!) and doesn't have the icky smell most hair spray has - sounds like a clear winner to me!

Attempting a mug shot with the baby sis after curling her hair on a random summer day! Isn't she GORGEOUS?

Yours truly before the Swedish House Mafia #ONELASTTOUR concert last week! Mind-blowing.

That's how I get my curls - how did you do yours?
