The Perfect Blowout Using Design Essentials Agave and Lavender 4 Step Silk Press Collection.
I usually blow dry and silk press my hair once a year and Design Essentials has always been a trusted source. As you all know I’m a big fan of Design Essential products, a product I can always rely on.

Step 1 – Remove Build !
As a curly girl it’s important to ensure all build up is removed from my hair. I apply a R5 coin size amount of the Agave and Lavender Moisturising Hair Bath ( shampoo ) into the palm of my hands and emulsify before applying to the scalp and lathering thoroughly. If you have a lot of build up and tend to always co-wash your hair, double the shampoo quantity if you feel it is necessary. This shampoo really removes impurities and build up from the scalp. Use this as a clarifying shampoo once a month.
Tip : always ensure your hair is wet before apply shampoo, as you will find it lathers up quicker and you use less product.
Step 2 – Condition the hair
I apply the Agave and Lavender Moisturising and Detangling Conditioner for 5 mins onto my hair, which is absolutely magic for hair as it softens and hydrates its. You can also use a heat cap (if desired) for up to 15 minutes for a deep conditioning treatment. Rinse your hair and gently towel blot to remove excess water.
Tip: This is a great product for softening and detangling the hair, I just love it.
Step 3 – Moisturise and Protect! PROTECT!
It’s really important that you use a heat protectant on your hair. The last thing you want is to lose those precious curls. I spray the Blow dry and styling primer onto wet hair and comb through (with a wide-tooth comb) to the ends. Do not rinse this product out, this is your leave-in, thereafter continue to style as usual.
Tip: These products provide heat protection for the hair, ITS A MUST!
Step 4 – Keep on Shinning
One of my favourite products when heat styling my hair is the Silk essentials. I use a few drops and emulsify in my palms and apply to either wet or dry hair and style as desired. This stuff is magic.
FINISH AND KLA!
