Get Sleek, Polished hair in 10 minutes with TIGI!

 

Hey everyone!

I have frizzy, thick, big hair and I always find blow-drying/straightening super time consuming. I didn’t have much time to style my hair when I headed to Lakme Fashion Week yesterday and this is where the TIGI Salon came to my rescue! The TIGI Zone (as its called) at Lakme Fashion Week is located near the Lakme Pro Stylist Lounge and has colorful decor – thanks to the fun packaging of the products.

This is what my hair looked like when Ritu from TIGI started styling it ~

To get the look, follow the following steps ~

 

– Start by applying a generous amount of TIGI Spoil Me Spray all over your hair. Keep half an arm’s length between the spray nozzle and your hair. After applying the spray, run your fingers through your hair to distribute the product evenly.  This instantly detangles, reduces the frizz and hence reduces the time you need to spend using heat.

 

~ Next, apply a smoothing cream like the TIGI After Party smoothing cream all over your hair. You need a very small amount, Ritu used a walnut sized amount of the cream for my hair. This will again smoothen out the frizzy bits and make the hair more manageable. It smells beautiful too so you can use this a deodorant for your hair (hence the name After Party!). It also contains minute Mica particles that add a nice sheen to the hair.

 

~ After prepping the hair with the Detangler and the Smoothing Cream, you’re hair is now ready to be blow dried! Generally stylists spend at least 20 minutes blow drying hair section by section which when tried at home, takes even longer! But Ritu barely took any time and only divided my hair in 5 sections. She said the products used to prep the hair are a boon for the stylists because they cut down the blow drying time in half!

~ To blow dry your hair, divide your hair into sections and using a round brush or a paddle brush, dry in downwards direction starting from root towards the end moving along the hair. Use the Brush to guide the movement of the dryer. The downward direction is important because we want to reduce the volume and give a sleek look to the hair. Depending on your preference, you can give an inward or outward flick at the ends with your brush.

~ Once the blow drying is done, you need to use something to give a little bit of hold. Ritu recommended the TIGI Masterpiece Spray for my hair type. She sprayed it from half an arm’s length away to give a light hold. If you want stronger hold, you can spray from closer to get more concentrated product in the hair. I hate the scrunchy hardness that setting products can give sometimes but this one is fairly mild. Another trick you can use here is to gently brush the hair after applying the spray using a paddle brush. This will prevent the hair from getting sticky, hard or sticking to each other.

 

~ Finish off the look by applying a small amount of TIGI Glaze Haze Serum to further add shine and tame any flyaways.

 

 

And this is the final look!!

    Ankita,

    I can’t be the only one who thinks your “before” picture looks absolutely gorgeous!!!! The voluminous, carefree, natural-looking curls complement your red lip amazingly and give you a great sassy look, full of personality, freedom and attitude! Sure, I know that in India so many beauties are blessed with naturally poker-straight, silky hair but I also believe that theirs is not the only kind of hair which is beautiful. Thick, textured hair might take a bit more product to keep it in check but I really think Lakme should take inspiration from your “before” picture next time they want to market a look full of individuality, strength and unique but undeniable beauty. I know that if I saw a girl with hair like yours in a bevvy of straight-haired ladies then you’d stand out to me instantly, and in a good way!

    I would ask anyone reading this comment who agrees with me to please just leave a reply showing your agreement – we need to support all forms of beauty, whether it’s kinky-haired gorgeousness or sleek-haired silkiness!

    Also, may I just ask, was you hair wet in the “before” picture? And approximately how long did it take you to achieve the length of hair which you now have?

    Ankita can you do a post to get polishes hair with products other than just TIGI. I am not a fan of using heat on my hair, but these days it feels like you cant get polished hair without blow-drying!
