Day 3- Win Design Essentials + Holiday Hair Style

Day 3- Win Design Essentials + Holiday Hair Style

Day3- DesignEssentials

I am all about saving time when doing my hair. The reason why I wear ponytails the majority of the week is because I don’t have the time to sit under the dryer for hours or to wait for my wet hair to air dry!

Design Essentials has the right formula for cutting down time! I was looking for a holiday style so I decided to do a twist out with rods on the end!  I decided to use the Design Essentials Natural Twist & Set Setting Lotion. This comes in a spray bottle. Check out their product line:

I washed my hair with their Curl Cleanser Sulfate Free and Moisturizing Conditioner. I love their shampoo because its very moisturizing and it has a nice consistency that I like. I am also able to detangle my hair with that, which cuts down on my conditioning process since it was already done 🙂

I lightly towel dried my hair and used the Design Essentials Twist & Set setting lotion. I put it on in sections and it immediately added shine to my hair. I combed it through with a paddle brush before sectioning off and twisting and put rods on the end.

I HATE sitting under the dryer and my hair was almost completely dry in 30 minutes under their so that was great!!

The next morning I took out the rods to super defined curls. Later that day I took out the twists and separated them.

For the holidays, I like to add cute headbands. I picked this beaded headband to add a little sparkle.

I decided to try an updo too!! I took 3 bobby pins and pinned the front into a faux-hawk and then took the back and did a loose twist and used a jeweled hair clip.

I love that my hair is super defined!!! Plus the detangling process was super easy.
