I’m not sure about you, but the ponytail has definitely become the Lockdown hairstyle of choice for me, as I battle against roots and hair which needs a good trim. I was meant to be headed to the hairdresser back in April, for a bit of a refresh, and now we’re in May, with no salon visits in sight, I’ve been finding ways to feel a little bit more polished. One of the easiest has to be a little of Rahua’s Smoothing Balm, warmed between the fingers, and smoothed onto strands – it’s the quickest way I’ve found of looking and feeling more pulled together.
Naturally, I’ve got hair with a bit of a wave, which is prone to fluffing up at the slightest hint of moisture, and my habit of bleaching it, as well as straightening it daily, meant my hair could do with a bit of TLC. I’ve been using this whole period as a bit of a hair reset time. I’ve not looked at the straighteners since March, and each morning I’ve been washing with a hydrating shampoo and following up with a nourishing conditioner or mask. After blasting it dry with a hairdryer, I’ve been popping it up in a ponytail using a silk scrunchie.
To look as groomed as possible, I’ve been smoothing on a little of Rahua’s aptly named Smoothing Balm around the hairline to keep my hair looking as tidy and shiny as possible. It does an amazing job of tidying my baby hairs, giving it a great does of shine, and it’s full of Morete Oil, which is rich in vitamins A, C, and E and it even protects hair from damaging UVA rays! Cocoa seed butter in the formula not only nourishes, but strengthens strands too! Scented with Gardenia (one of my favourites) it’s a real treat to use, and I love the fact that not only does it make my hair look better, but it’s helping rebuild my hair too!
