Happy Friday, everyone!! A few months ago I did a post about the tools I use to get my signature curls (you can see that here). It has been one of my most popular posts so I thought I would do an updated one since I get so many questions on the daily about my hair!

Below are my most frequently asked questions about my hair and the answers:

#1: Do you have extensions?

No I don't, this is all my natural hair but I've been growing it out for years! I wore clip in extensions while I was waiting for my hair to grow out though. If you're looking for a good extension, my friend Amber's line is amazing!

#2: What hair tools do you use?

About 6 months ago I was introduced to T3 after hearing amazing things from girlfriends and other bloggers! I was first drawn to it because their products are white and rose gold and super cute, which is unique for hair tools! I started by first using their Whirl Trio curling iron and after using it I threw away all my old curling irons. And since I've started using their blowdryer and straightener!

#3: What Shampoo and Conditioner do you use?

I switch off. I use Pureology Nano Works and also the purple Pureology (the one that tingles your scalp, it's amazing). My hair girl tells me switch up my shampoo and not use the same thing on it every wash.

#4: What are your go-to hair products?

I use the wet-brush to brush my hair out (it's a must if you have long hair). After I get out of the shower before I blow dry my hair I use Pureology root-lift, It's a 10 with Keratin (the orange lid), and Kerastase shine serum (I also use the serum on my ends before I straighten it). I also use the Nexxum rose gold hairspray (I just get it at the grocery store).

#5: What's the secret to getting long, healthy hair?

High-quality heating tools and using products with keratin!!!!! It is seriosuly worth every penny to invest high-quality heating tools that are designed to protect your hair, not damage it. Damaged hair doesn't grow, it breaks off. Using heat on your hair is what damages it the most. We all have to style our hair with heat whether that's a blowdryer, straightener or curling iron. It's so important to find and use tools that have the technology that will most protect your hair while using heat.

I'm sure you have all noticed I've been wearing my hair sleek and straight WAY more often than I use to. I LOVE my T3 straightener! It's called the SinglePass LUXE and it evenly distributes heat with their signature SinglePass technology so I don't have to damage my hair by re-straightening the same piece of hair over and over again (the thought makes me want to cringe). It's also great for creating loose waves too!

Ok now for the fun part... Use code PPSPLUXE when you purchase the SinglePass LUXE to get a free SinglePass Compact and be sure to enter their sweepstakes here for a chance to win the SinglePass LUXE! Good luck!!!

xo, Rach
