During my trip home a couple of months ago, I got another perm. I’ve been having curly hair for two years in a row. I love the easy volume and style a perm brings to the table, but at the same time my hair is inevitably damaged because of it. A while ago I started trying out the new Redken Smooth Lock Butter Silk, and I’m going to review that with a couple of other hair products I’ve been using for you!
Four years ago when I was about to move to Belgium, I predicted my hairdresser would be one of the people I miss the most. Just to make things clear, I think this goes past the typical tricky Asian hair problem. It is more about the fact that he has never disappointed me during the 6 years and a half years I’ve known him. I am a minimalist when it comes to hair. I want a good cut that I can easily blow dry to make it look presentable. I use next to no styling products (I do need a curling mousse now after the perm), and after I successfully reduced the frequency of shampooing in the beginning of the year, it seems like I’m on the right track.
Even though at this moment there’s nothing else I want to do besides going straight to my hairdresser’s from the airport next Wednesday (it’s not a joke. The appointment has been booked!), I am here to share some products that have helped me through the year!
