my hair - the truth



In this post you expect to find all my hair care tips, but as you see in the photo I'm not an expert and my hair are not in perfect shape, so don't expect miracles ;))) I'm a short-hair girl. You will say: "What?!?!" but the truth is that I have long hair only from recently and I had them short or medium all life. So I'm surprised how loooong they've grown and sometimes I have no idea how to behave me with them. 
They are naturally curvy and, unfortunately, tend to get oily rather quickly. I washed them everyday but since they got so long the ends are dry while the top starts to be oily so I try not to use styling cosmetics to reduce the build-up. And now the big secret - I never ever blow-dry them! I just dry them naturally with a towel. It requires more time but I avoid damaging them with hot air and they don't get that frizz. Below you will find my latest finds that I am tasting. I love Aveda products, the Smooth Infusion line leaves you hair fresh and light. I can't live without HairMed R3, it's a bit complicated to use, but it leaves your hair shiny and strong and.... it has the best (rasberry) scent!

In questo post pensate di trovare i miei consigli per la cura dei capelli, ma come vedete nella foto non sono un'esperta e i miei capelli non sono nella forma perfetta, perciò non aspettate miracoli ;))) Sono una ragazza dei capelli corti. Risponderete: "Che?!?!?!" ma le verità è che ho capelli lunghi da poco e tutta la vita ho avuto i capelli corti  di media lunghezza. A volte rimango sorpresa quanto lunghi sono diventati e non so come comportarmi con loro.
Sono naturalmente mossi e, purtroppo, tendono a diventare grassi velocemente. Prima li lavavo ogni giorno ma da quando sono diventati così lunghi sono grassi alla base e secchi verso la punta. Cerco di usare meno (o zero) cosmetici per lo styling per non appesantirli. E adesso un grande segreto - non li asciugo mai con il fon! Li asciugo in modo naturale con l'aiuto dell'asciugamano. Ci vuole più tempo, ma almeno non vengono danneggiati e non diventano troppo crespi. Sotto potete trovare i prodotti che testo ultimamente. Adoro i prodotti di Aveda, la linea Smooth Infusion lascia i capelli freschi e non li appesantisce. Ormai non so vivere senza HairMed R3, e un po' complicato da usare, ma lascia i capelli setosi e forti e.... ha il miglior profumo (lampone)!


And now some of my grandma rules that I try to follow:
1. Eat almonds and nuts to give your hair strenght.
2. Rinse hair with cold water, mineral one if you can, they will get shiny.
3. Comb your hair before washing and then only when they get dry, you will avoid breaking them.
4.Don't towel-dry to roughly, pat them gently with towel, they won't get frizz.
5. Clean your hair brush at least once a week.

 E adesso un po' di regole di mia nonna che cerco di seguire:
1. Mangiate tante mandorle e noci per dare la forza ai capelli.
2. Usa l'acqua fredda per lavare i capelli, magari acqua minerale, diventeranno brilanti.
3. Spazzola i capelli prima di lavarli e poi solo quando saranno asciutti, eviterai di spezzarli.
4. Non asciugarli strofinando energeticamente l'asciugamano, ma tocca i capelli delicatemente, così non diventeranno crespi.
5. Pulisci la tua spazzola almeno una volta alla settimana.
