February! The most romantic month of the year is here. With Valentine’s Day just gone, we know you’re still busy scurrying to prep for your follow-up dates. You may be so swept up in love that you probably haven’t had a chance to think beyond the love of your life. And while you’re scolding yourself for waiting till the last minute, and pulling your hair out in frustration, we’re here to give it some much-needed TLC and to jazz it up, style it up, and give your hair the ultimate oomph. Check out our list of the top 5 dreamiest hair styling products to indulge in this season.
Hold that awesome style!
Create the perfect hairstyle for the perfect date and ensure it lasts all day. All you need is a hairspray, a generous dose of spritzing, and ta-dah! You’re all set, literally! The right product will not only help maintain your style but also hold your hair in place, no matter what.
So, make sure your hair is never out of place with Schwarzkopf Taft Classic Hair Spray Extra Strong 3. Great for all hair types, you can fashion your hair any way you want. It comes with a stronghold feature that will hold your desired hairstyle, so you don’t need to worry about touch-ups every minute. The best part is that this product gives four times more power to the hold while deeply moistening and conditioning your hair.
Tip – Spritz your bobby pins with hairspray before using. Once they are dry, put them on. You’ll find that the pins stay still in your hair longer, and this reduces the hassle of constantly adjusting them
Play it smooth!
If there’s one thing you don’t need to bring on your date, it’s frizzy, unruly, unmanageable hair. Exactly why serums are such an essential part of hairstyling. Rough hair? Smoothen it. Dull hair? Shine it. Frizzy hair? Tame it. Messy hair? Untangle it. A hair serum does everything it takes to make your hair look wow! It works as styling as well as a finishing product. This truly is a genie in a bottle.
Let your date be as smooth as your hair with L’Oréal Paris Smooth Intense Serum. Enriched with argan oil and silk protein that’s full of essential fatty nutrients, it promises 48-hour protection. Its fabulous crème formula nourishes and smoothens hair from root to tip, and shields hair from dry and humid weather. It renews the shine and texture of your hair giving you instant smoothening and deep nourishment. Try it, and your hair will love it!
Tip – Slather serum on your hair before going to bed. This acts as a deep conditioning treatment as your hair soaks up all the nourishing moisture. Rinse with warm water in the morning for unbelievably gorgeous hair.
Straight up style!
Let’s get straight to the point; hair straighteners are a boon to hair styling and the perfect hairdo for a date. This magical tool doesn’t just give you fabulous straight locks, but it also helps tame unruly hair. Moreover, it promises shine and sleekness like no other. If you love a straight, not-a-hair-out-of-place look, look no further. Whether your hair is rough, coarse, wavy or curly, a hair straightener will work miracles.
Go straight for the Remington Ceramic Straight Hair Straightener. This wonder product is designed with anti-static ceramic-coated plates that not only protect hair but also deliver a sleek and smooth look in just one effortless stroke. It works amazingly fast by reaching a top heat of 230 in a super-quick 15 seconds. Now enjoy gorgeously straight hair in an instant.
Tip – Straightening the same piece of hair over and over again can cause damage. To avoid that, run a comb through the section of your hair and pull tight. Glide the comb across your hair, with the straighter chasing it. This will drastically reduce the number of times you need to straighten a section.
Curl it up, girl!
Big, bouncy waves or fun, flirty curls, either way, you can’t go wrong with the style. This effortless chic hairdo is easy to create when you have the right tools and by that, we mean curling iron. It’s super-easy to use and is the key to creating head-turning beachy waves and cascading curls. This will not only win you compliments but hearts too.
Show your hair some love with The Alan Truman Round Stick Hair Curler. Whether you want extremely tight, skinny curls, or flirty waves, this ultra-thin magic wand lets you do it all. This extra-long, tourmaline-ceramic coated barrel is lightweight. With 5 temperature settings and a 3-meter heavy-duty yet slim power cord, you can get as creative as you want with your hair. Be it tight-skinny curls, corkscrew curls, bouncy springy curls, tight Afro curls, loose flat waves, normal curls, loose curls and anything else your imagination allows, this multi-styler will whip it up in a jiffy. The best thing is that it doesn’t have a clip, which gives you flexibility, ease of use, and most importantly, speed. Suitable for most types of hair, it is designed with infrared technology that seals in moisture and helps you to retain and maintain the style all day long and until the next wash.
Tip – Here is a super simple, handy trick. The closer you are to the root of your hair when you start curling, the longer the curls will last.
Colour it your way!
Live life in colour, and flaunt every shade of it. If you want to jazz up your look or give yourself a glam makeover, colour is all you need. It’ll not only change the way you look, but it’ll also give you a compelling personality, an adventurous edge, and not to forget, oodles of attitude. So, this season, turn a shade more you. A red, perhaps?
Paint the town red and sport hair to match with Garnier Color Naturals Creme Riche Ultra Hair Color – Raspberry Red. Enriched with the goodness of almond oil and avocado oil, this nourishes hair and gives it a gorgeous shine and long-lasting colour. And if you have greys, this will cover it too, 100%. We promise your hair will love the nourishment, and you will love the colour.
Tip – Even out the colour and avoid streaks, patches, or lines by simply spritzing a little water on your hair and gently massaging the colour right in before washing it off.
So, there you are. Now with these 5 essentials, you can style your hair all-out and flaunt it with finesse. Give your hair the oomph it deserves and give your date a reason to stare at you, mesmerised. Swing your tresses from left to right and let cupid do the rest – dart off those love arrows, make heads turn, make hearts beat as you soak in the attention. Go ahead, let your hair down!
