I’m so honoured to have been ambassador for Maria Nila during 2020, and my hair have never felt, smelled or looked better! In this article I would like to take the opportunity to show you some of my favourite products that I just can't imagen being without after discovering them.
Let’s start with the basics. My wash-routine has changed a lot since I teamed up with Maria Nila and hair and scalp is not a problem anymore thanks to the Head & Hair Heal collection.
I start off my washing my hair with the Head & Hair Heal shampoo, I do this 2-3 times a week but never more than that.
Once I week I used the Head & Hair Heal Masque and massage it in to my scalp and hair, I leave it in for 5-10 minutes before washing it out. This has really been a massive change for me to the better! Add ing the heal masque to my washing routine has really helped fight off the dryness that I once had a problem with.
Last but not least I use the Head & Hair Heal conditioner and leave it in for 1-2 minutes before washing it out. I always use conditioner to finish off my washing routine.
I’ve put together two styling combinations that has worked great for me depending on length of my hair.
Style 1 - Styling Mousse & Slate Wax
When my hair is a bit longer I have found that the most ideal styling products for my hair is the Styling Mousse and Slate Minerals Wax. I start off by applying the Styling Mousse when my hair still is a bit wet. After that I let my hair air-dry or use a hairdryer before applying the Slate wax that gives my hair body and a better hold.
Style 2 - Gneiss Wax & Salty Mist
The second combo works best when my hair is a bit shorter to define my natural curls. I start off by applying the Gneiss Minerals Wax when my hair still is a bit wet to add a bit more hold. After that I use Salty Mist to give my curls a natural flair without giving too much of a shine when my hair dries up.
I hope you have enjoyed my tips and tricks! If you want more hairstyle inspiration I recommend you to take a look at this article: Styling with Philip Conradsson and Robert Preston. It is also available in video-format at Maria Nila's Youtube channel.
