I’m a big fan of afternoon tea! Although I’m not eating scones and cake at the moment ;p. But then I got to drink a lot of lovely tea! John Frieda had invited us to socialize and check out their products. Afterwards we had to try out the products ourselves. Sweet Maria started to straighten my hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight Spray. Now my hair was filled with a lot of other stuff, so I have to test it in freshly washed hair soon. It would certainly be nice if you did not have to straighten it everyday . Otherwise, I have always loved John Frieda Frizz-Ease Agent Perfecting Creme. I use it often at my ends when I have curled or straightened my hair. It collects the tips, moisturizes and also contains the UV filter.
It’s really rare that I go to the hairdresser, last time was 1 ½ years ago. Mostly because it never gets quite the way I wish it to be, and they always cut too much off. So I was excited when I was going to get a hair makeover by Ofia! I have met Ofia a few times, at different events, cause besides having her own salon on Frederiksberg , she is also a hairstylist for ghd.
Ofias fab salon is super lovely and cozy, right in the middle of Frederiksberg Allé . I started of by showing her some hair inspiration that I had fallen in love with. Golden stripes, without it being too red and a Hollywood haircut. And luckily Ofia was completely in on it .
I had quite a long outgrowth from some old home dyeing and worn out ends, as it had been quite a long time since I had been to a hairdresser. Ofia started doing two kinds of stripes in my hair. I had never it tried before! After a lot of stripes, my outgrowth had a little extra lightening, so the stripes would blend in more naturally into the rest of my hair.
Now for the haircut! Ofia herself has beautiful long hair and fully understood, that I diden’t want not much taken off. On the other hand I my ends were pretty worn, and it is the first time, that I am super happy getting my hair cut . My ends were corrected and at the front she did some layers, so now I can do the side swept bangs when I want to, but I can still get it behind the ears.
I also tried some new hair products that Ofia recommended for my hair. Philip B Detangling Mist, which contains vinegar, the smell is not wonderful, but it goes in and seals the hair’s pH value. Then Milkshake Conditioning Whipped Cream, this smell is on the other hand so delicious, you ‘ll really want to eat it! It’s a leave- in conditioner foam, specially designed to condition the hair. For the finally, my new favorite hair product Oribe Dry Texturing Hair Spray. Instead of backcomb hairing your hair, spray this into your hair, and it gives volume and fullness, it is fab!
Yay, I’m so happy with my new hair and next time it won’t be 1 ½ years before I go to the hairdressers . In a few months I will certainly stop by Ofias again, and I can really recommend her salon if you are looking for a skilled hairdresser in Copenhagen. See more on Ofias website here.
P. S. Ofia finished off my hair, by styling it with a ghd styler, you can win one on the blog right here.
Are you going to a music festival this summer? . I do not know if I’m going yet, but if I am, I will definitely make this look! Fab waves in your hair and of course some flowers . The look is easy to make and keeps well for several days, you can freshen it up with some dry shampoo, it’s only cool, if it looks a bit “messy”.
I have used:
Matas Salt Water Spray
John Frieda Secret Agent
How to do:
1. Part your hair into small strands and squeeze the wave iron around the strand. Starting from the top and down. Hold for 5-10 seconds at a time.
2. Once you have made waves throughout the hair, they just need to cool slightly before separating them.
3. Spray some salt spray in your hair, that way your waves get more structure.
4. Finish off with some Secret Agent cream, apply only at the tips, so your waves looks perfect.
5. Add some flowers in your hair and you’re ready to party and go to a music festival ❤.
I have a little Sunday ritual, which is going to the Urtehuset’s café on G. Kongevej! Here I eat a healthy salad , a little raw cake and freshly squeezed juices while I work. And there I like to shop some natural skin care . This winter I’ve tested Mádara’s DD cream and Time Miracle Serum, and I’ve recently bought a Cloud Berry Oat Milk Hand & Body Soap, which I have with me in the bath, it smells so nice!
My skin has been a little turbulent, since I stopped with the pill after 10 years of use! So it is obviously that the skin goes a little crazy. But it seems that the serum, which includes sea buckthorn, blueberry, red clover has giving nutrition to my skin. DD cream , which stands for Daily Defense , has really moisturized and calmed my skin. In particular where there has been dry spots . It contains arctic berries and oils. And I’ve also started to eat even healthier and I’m taking daily Icelandic fish oil shoots, all of which helps to hydrate the skin from the inside and out! Do you use natural skin care products ? .
