Caring For Ombré Hair: Styling

I recently shared with you all on the blog how I like to care for my ombré hair and which products I have been reaching for when it comes to washing it. I decided, what better way than to follow this up with which products I have been using to style my hair also. It is no understatement when I tell you that I am very low maintenance when it comes to my haircare and I'm a major creature of habit when it comes to my hairstyles too; most days I either wear my hair straightened with a centre parting, or wavy with a centre parting again. I have had a centre-parting since I was about 5 years old and I'm pretty sure it's destined to stick by me forever. Whenever I choose to put my ombré back in, I find that it really injects life back into my hairstyles and it seems to look best on days when I style it to look naturally tousled/wavy.

Regardless of whether or not I have washed & conditioned my hair, I will always add a little dry shampoo to my roots before styling; I find that dry shampoo adds just the right amount of grit to my hair and helps to hold my hairstyle, particularly if I choose to put my hair up into a messy bun. My absolute favourite dry shampoo is the 'London' scent from the COLAB range, which does not leave any white marks in my roots. Second to this, my next favourite is the 'Original' scent from Batiste. Albeit, the Batiste one can leave some noticeable white marks in my hair on first application, particularly as my roots are still brunette, but I work this in well to make sure it's gone by the time I come to styling.

For both my curled and straightened hair, I always use my trusty GHDs; for curling my hair with the GHDs, I spray in a little bit of heat protect spray, particularly to the ends and then gently wrap small sections of my hair around the plates and twist. I then choose to brush out the curls to make sure it doesn't look quite so tidy and work back in with a sea salt spray. I mostly use the Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising spray as I find this to be the most lightweight and it doesn't leave my hair feeling 'crispy' either. I've recently been trying out the Bleach London 'Swamp Spritz' spray too which leaves my hair with beachy-looking, tousled waves all day.  The Swamp Spritz spray can also be set to 'spray' or 'stream' on the nozzle depending on how much product you wish to apply with each spritz.  I tend to set it to the 'spray' option as otherwise it can leave my hair feeling too crispy. I also find it easier to work in with smaller spritzes.

The final product I use on my hair for any hairstyle has always been (and most likely will always be) the Elnette Satin hairspray.  If this beautiful gold can is ever discontinued, I will probably do a little cry.  I find that no other hairspray comes close to this and it leaves both my straightened and wavy hair held delicately in place for hours.  It also does exactly what it says on the can and comes out with the stroke of a brush.

I think that all of these products do just the job for somebody like me that always tends to stick to the same hairstyles.  Do you use any of these products? If you have ombré hair, how do you like to style your hair on a day-to-day basis? Give a girl some hair-spiritation please.
