LONG HAIR DON'T CARE


Giugno sembra essere il mese della bellezza. Dopo avervi dato alcuni consigli su come proteggere i capelli dai raggi solari e dalla salsedine ora vi parlo di come prendervene cura anche da casa. E' importante scegliere con cura i prodotti con cui trattare i nostri capelli, in quanto ogni donna ha esigenze diverse. Io, per esempio, uso prodotti pensati esclusivamente per capelli lunghi e danneggiati (ebbene si, dallo shatush). La linea che vedete oggi è firmata Elgon e mi è stata presentata durante il Cosmoprof, a cui ho partecipato come inviata di Bigodino.it. Dopo un accurato test sui capelli mi è stata consigliata la gamma Sinea ma, nei negozi specializzati, potete sottoporvi ad un consulto e trovare quella più adatta a voi. I passaggi per avere capelli sani sono pochi ma fondamentali: solitamente inizio massaggiando bene ma molto delicatamente la cute con i polpastrelli durante lo shampoo (che non deve mai essere più di uno) ed applico spesso maschere nutrienti. Inoltre, evito di utilizzare piastre ma quando non ne posso fare a meno, applico sui capelli bagnati dell'olio di Argan e uno spray protettivo per riparare le punte dal calore estremo. 
E voi avete consigli da svelate per quanto riguarda la cura dei capelli? 
Fatemi sapere come li trattate e quali tecniche usate per averli sempre sani! 

June seems to be the month of beauty. After giving you some advices on how to protect your hair from the sun and salt now I'll tell you how take care of them even from home. It's important to carefully choose the products with which treat our hair, because every woman has different needs. For example, I use products designed exclusively for long and damaged hair (yes, due of shatush). The line you see today is signed by Elgon and it was presented to me during the Cosmoprof, in which I took part as writer of Bigodino.it. After a test on the hair I was recommended to use Sinea but, in specialty stores, you can ask a consultation and find the one perfect for you. The steps for healthy hair are few but basic: I usually start with a very gentle massagge of the scalp with my fingertips while shampooing (which should never be more than one) and I apply often nutrient masks. Also, I avoid of using hair straightener but when I can't do without, I apply on my wet hair Argan oil and a protective spray to repair them from the extreme heat. Which are your advices regarding hair care? 
Let me know how you treat them and what techniques you use to let them be always healthy!

MY CURRENT BEAUTY MUST HAVES



1. Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 : this product can be used in three ways: as a mask, cleanser or scrub. I keep it in the shower and use it several times a week. This allows me to have always smooth and clean skin. 

2. YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à lèvres : the perfect gloss if you must stay out during all day. It resists perfectly on your lips for hours and never loses its brilliance! I'm addicted!

3. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner : I have them all and I use them really everyday. I'm not good to use liquid eyeliners but those creams help me to create a pefect line thanks also to the brush provided. Recommended for bungling like me! 

4. Labello Lip Butter in "Raspberry rose" : just released in Italy and already one of my favorite products. I adore its fresh but sweet smell and it is never absent in my bag.

5. Yves Rocher Noix de Coco Eau de toilette : I use this fragrance especially during summer because I love the smell of coconut. It reminds me of the white beaches of Maldives with crystal clear water and palm trees. It smells of light-heartedness...delicious! 

6. Sephora Foundation brush : this is REALLY a must have! I can't imagine another way to stretch out my foundation over the entire face so perfectly.

7. Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in "Enjouée" : I call it the perfect color and I could wear it every day. Just one pass to make happy every woman on earth. It is the perfect gift for the one you love or for yourself, just like I did.

8. Redken Curvaceous ringlet lotion : Managing curly hair is never easy. Redken simplifies things by giving definition to my hair and preventing moisture makes them too bulky.

9. Mac Blending Eye Brush : when I want to make my make up more sophisticated I always choose to create a smokey eye. To do this I need to have a good gradient brush, like this by Mac. If you want to focus on something cheaper but no less valid I recommend you the same version by Elf.

10. I Coloniali Velveting hand cream with Rice Bran Oil : I've never used hand creams ...until two days ago. This cream made with rice bran oil is like a drug for me and I can't live without it anymore. My hands have never been so soft and fragrant and I use it whenever I can. 

11. Clinique All about eyes Rich : I bought the "rich" version of the already famous cream for the eye contour by Clinique during my return trip from Greece. I'm very satisfied because it delates signs of fatigue from my face. You have to try it once in a lifetime...
