No more bad hair days…
The first hair product I started using was gel. I remember having it cut after school and sitting mesmerised, staring at the huge tubs of green or blue goop. At that time my hair styles were as you would expect…. An absolute nightmare. There was the French crop which I covered in concrete hold gel so the fringe dried into crispy looking spiders legs.

Like me, my hair can be a little rebellious! It’s slightly curly and I have to be careful how I style it otherwise it looks fluffy and dry. Below I will list some useful tips on how I coiffe my quiff.
- I try not to wash it too often. Daily washing leaves my hair particularly dry and fluffy which I obviously hate. I wait until my hair starts to look greasy before I wash it. I usually get away with once a week. In between I just rinse it in the shower.
- Most days I let it air dry. My hair has more grip and volume when it’s not super clean. On these days I comb my hair into place when it’s still wet and let it dry naturally. I recommend a carbon comb because they are anti-static and prevent fly away’s.
- On special occasions I go all out. In the picture above I blow-dried my hair and finished with a little product. I often do this on washing day to avoid the fluff or when I want to look my best. I rough dry my hair with a blow dryer and gently smooth out the front with a brush. My favourite is the Y.S. Park from Japan. I finish with a small amount of matte paste to create a piece-y effect. I’m currently loving Malin + Goetz hair pomade.
