How to Create Kendall Jenner’s Flawless Blowout

How to Create Kendall Jenner’s Flawless Blowout 376 404 Naomi Soman

Kendall Jenner blew us away at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party with her gorgeous blow out. With some impressive volume and an adorable 60’s hair flip, this 22-year-old model was certainly turning heads. Here’s how you can get the same look at home! 

 

  1. Pre-Dry 

 

Make sure your hair is at least three-quarters dry before you grab your hairdryer. Remember, the hairdryer is just meant to help you style your hair. By towel drying or air drying your hair ahead of time, you’ll help to minimize heat damage. Then either take a flat brush or tousle your hair with your fingers and dry your hair in the opposite direction of growth until it’s about 90% dry.  

 

 2. Section Off  

Use one or two clips to tie up the top of your hair so you can work on what’s called the halo section of your hair—the crown and the bottom sections around your head. Take the top of the hair next and then finish off with the hair at the back of the head. 

 

 3. The Right Brush 

 

Invest in some high-quality, round brushes. A ceramic brush will hold heat better, so it will lend more bounce and texture especially to finer hair. You can also use our 100% vegan nylon bristle brush. Modeled off of a traditional boar bristle brush, this brush will give you a firm hold on your hair allowing you to pull thick, curly locks nice and straight. 

 

4. Up & Out 

Make sure to always pull the hair up and out. Start drying at the root very close to the scalp for plenty of volume and frizz-control. You’ll want to point the hairdryer downward toward the ends of the hair following the brush to make sure its smooth and shiny. Don’t forget to work the ends until they are completely dry and polished. Moisture tends to collect at the ends of the hair creating frizz and ruining an otherwise picture-perfect, salon-quality look. 

 

5. Rock & Roll:  

Roll the hair around your brush and rock it back and forth while blow drying it to create a natural curl in the hair. When you’re finished, gently release the hair and pin up the curl to let it set. Alternate directions as you go around the head so that the hair doesn’t clump together into one large curl. 

 

6. Cool Down:  

Let the hair cool for at least five to ten minutes before removing the clips. If you’re in a hurry, use the cold shock button on your blow dryer to help speed up the process. 

 

7. Extra Products: 

 

Make sure you’re applying a nice smoothing spray or cream to your hair before you start blow drying. Then apply a bit of Remilia serum to your hairline and ends to prevent further damage. Try not to use too many conditioners besides the Cosmocap though. Leave-in conditioners are heavy, and they tend to weigh hair down making it harder for you to create the volume you need for a blowout. 

Keep either sea salt spray or dry shampoo on hand while drying your hair. Apply a bit to your roots especially when you get to your crown to add some extra oomph. Finish the look off with a bit more serum and just a touch of hair spray and you’re ready to go. 

With a Cosmocap and these seven tips, you’ll be runway-ready. Grab your red carpet dress and prepare for the paparazzi.  

 

How I Keep My Hair Blonde And Healthy

How I Keep My Hair Blonde And Healthy 944 1024 Remilia Hair

I have been getting this question a lot: how is your hair so healthy, yet so blonde?

To be completely honest, my hair used to suck. Circa 2008 I was playing water polo and swimming pretty much 365 days a year and the chlorine did nothing good for me. This was my senior year of high school, so I splurged on hair extensions in the spring. They were the bonded type, which lasted me well through graduation and our senior trip to Cancun. Well, apparently you can’t get drunk for seven days in a row and neglect your extensions (they don’t tell you this when you get them put in). I came home with a massive dreadlock on the back of my head. The extensions needed to come out immediately, so I did it myself, and melted all of the wax bonds at home with my straightener. Unfortunately, with the extensions came out 75% of my natural hair. My hair post-extensions was so thin and gross, and needed a serious chop. I cried (true story).

Throughout college, I dabbled with different hairstylists and an excessive amount of bleach. My hair never really got past a shoulder-length, and I was dying to have mermaid locks, so I thought going brunette was the solution. Two words: Never. Again.

After going brunette, I said goodbye to my Fresno hairdresser and came back to my hometown salon. My hairstylist at home is an old family friend, and treats my hair like it’s her own. She had to do a lot of damage control after years of terrible bleach and an outgrown brunette dye-job, but over time my hair started to grow again. To this day, she refuses to let me go past a certain level of platinum for the sake of protecting my hair. While it can be frustrating not having full control over my color, keeping my hair a consistent blonde for six-plus years has been a game changer.

I have also made a real conscious effort to cut my hair every eight weeks. I used to wholeheartedly believe that if I never cut it, it would stay long— and while it did, it was never actually healthy. Sometimes I can persuade my hairdresser to let me skip a trim, but more times than not I’m cleaning up my jagged ends every time I see her. This has helped my hair in ways that I can’t even explain.

 

 

Outside of the salon, I try to keep up with a healthy at-home hair routine. I try to limit myself to washing my hair to 1-2 days a week. Not only does this help with the oil production, but it helps me avoid using unnecessary heat on my hair, too. And, I mean, washing your hair is just a hassle.

In the shower, I have three ride-or-dies. The first two are my Pureology products. I swear by the Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner. The second is the Redken Extreme Cat Protein Reconstructing Hair Treatment. The protein spray is a rinse-off formula that I use a couple times a month, and works as a more affordable option to a professional Keratin treatment. These three products have worked very, very well for my hair.

Once my hair is towel-dried, I spray in a tiny bit of It’s A 10 so I can easily comb through my hair. I use a hair pick for this, because I’ve found that it allows me to work through my tangles more gently than a brush would. After my hair is detangled, I’ll use my favorite hair serum from Remilia Hair. The Cosmocap from Remilia helps add shine and prevent breakage by using silk protein and keratin amino acids. Honestly, it’s a miracle product. I love how my hair feels after the Cosmocap, and I doubt I’ll ever go back.

Nine times out of ten, I’ll let my hair air dry, and avoid curling or straightening as much as possible. If I am curling it, I use the Navy Hair Care Style Navigator beforehand, to protect my hair from the heat and frizz.

My hair is still pretty thin and has a long way to go, but if you’ve seen where its been, you’d be amazed. I’m really happy with my routine right now, and if just one person benefits from this long-winded post, it was well worth it.

How To Achieve Healthy Hair While Traveling

How To Achieve Healthy Hair While Traveling 1000 562 Remilia Hair

Raise your hand if you have an upcoming trip planned? Perhaps it’s time for a vacation, or maybe you have an important work meeting on the horizon? Whatever the case, when travel is involved, it generally means pulling out that luggage and packing it with your essentials.

But hey, what exactly are those essentials? How do you pick and choose what to bring with you on a trip? Especially when baggage weight and airport security is involved.  

Don’t worry, friends. We’ve got a solution for you. Or, at least a solution that will ease up plenty of space in your luggage, without sacrificing your beauty routine.

‘Cause seriously, how many times have you left something at home, only to realize that product would have come in handy while traveling? Or perhaps you’re bringing full size bottles of products, adding to luggage weight and forcing you to check a bag when a carry on would be much more practical?

Say goodbye to this pesky scenario, and say hello to your new haircare solution for travel. The Cosmocap!

With this little baby in your arsenal of beauty products, it works just as well at home or on the road, without causing you any of the usual inconvenience you’ll find with full size hair products.

Don’t believe us? Let’s talk about how The Cosmocap can help whether you’re going on a quick trip, or on a full blown vacation.

Packing the Cosmocap For a Quick Trip

 

We’ve all been there: we’re packing for a quick trip that requires some airplane travel. Whether it’s going to see family, a weekend trip with your BF, or an important conference in another state, in these scenarios, a carry on is usually the best bet.

But hey, with weight and space restrictions, what are the first products you’re likely to eliminate from your luggage?

There’s no way you’re sacrificing those killers heels you bought specifically for this trip, and you’re not about to part ways with your favorite cleanser and moisturizer duo.

You start to wonder whether you really need those extra hair care products for just a quick trip? Maybe you could get away with a messy bun throughout the weekend?

Sure, you could, but if shiny, silky hair was possible without having to sacrifice on weight or room in your luggage, wouldn’t you want it?

Of course! And with The Cosmocap in your beauty routine, you can have it.

Our capsules are small, portable, and weigh next to nothing. And hey, best of all, the serum is contained in a biodegradable capsule, so you don’t have to feel guilty about contributing any waste to the environment.

Simply throw a couple of our capsules into a clear plastic bag, and you’ve got the perfect hair care companion that will ensure your hair is looking its absolute best all throughout your trip, even when you’re travelling with a simple carry on.

Packing The Cosmocap For Vacation

Even when a carry on isn’t possible, and you’re packing for a longer length trip, we still tend to make some sacrifices when it comes to packing our beauty products.

Once again, a similar narrative runs through our minds: Do we really need that special hair treatment? Couldn’t we just pack our hair serum in a reusable container to reduce weight? Maybe we should just skip the hair treatments altogether and focus on skincare?  

Stop right there. At Remilia, we believe that hair comes first.

And that most certainly applies to when you’re embarking on a vacation.

In fact, haircare tends to be even more important when heading on vacation. Nobody wants to spend their vacation prepping in the bathroom because their hair is so damaged and unmanageable. Not to mention, vacation often means plenty of humidity and salt water. Say hello to frizz and dry hair.

With some capsules of The Cosmocap packed safely away in your luggage, not only can you easily bring hair care products with you without sacrificing on space in your luggage, your hair is also guaranteed to look healthy, smooth, and shiny while on vacation.

Plus, each capsule is packed individually, meaning you’ll be able to bring the exact amount of capsules you’ll need throughout the trip, and you won’t have to worry about a reusable container leaking onto the rest of your belongings. Not a bad deal, right?

If you’re ready to stop sacrificing your hair care while on vacation, and you’re ready to pack for trips like the smart cookie that we know you are, it’s time to discover The Cosmocap.

Why Hair Care Is Key To Your Beauty Routine

Why Hair Care Is Key To Your Beauty Routine 1000 667 Remilia Hair

As ladies who want to both look and feel great, we understand that having a beauty routine is key to taking proper care of yourself.

This can include anything from skincare, to pampering sessions and manicures, or even to just playing with makeup; however, there’s one essential component that we know should never be neglected when it comes to your beauty routine: hair care.

Why? Well, first and foremost, because as a brand we strongly believe that hair comes first.  Always.

Because remember, your hair can determine your overall look. Trust us, if you show up to an event with dead, dry, and damaged hair, it really doesn’t matter how you style the rest of your look, your overall style is going to appear lackluster.

Not ideal, right? We didn’t think so. So today, we’re going to share with you five reasons for why your hair care routine is oh-so-important, and how you can implement your own routine today.

Let’s dive in!

1)   Damaged Hair Kills Your Look

Like we mentioned, damaged hair can really kill your entire look, but let’s elaborate on that, shall we? So, not only will damaged hair bring down your overall look, it’s also going to impact how you feelThink of it this way: when you’re having a bad hair day, how does it impact how you feel about yourself?

We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that a bad hair day isn’t exactly your idea of a good time. Develop a good hair care routine, and you’ll never have to hide beneath a baseball cap again.  

2) Your Hair Won’t Grow

Now, we know that not everyone is looking to grow out their hair, but for those of you who are, you’ll never be able to do so if you’re not taking proper care of your hair.

Long, luxurious hair that gets all the attention is only achieved when you take proper care of your locks, and a routine is an absolute essential part of that.

3) With Hair Care, You Have The Power

Here’s the deal with hair care: you have the power to change it, right now.

While things like skincare might be more difficult to manage, with hair care you can implement a routine today that would make a difference. Really, all it takes is the decision to start treating your hair with love and attention, and you’ll see an immediate change.

On the other hand, if you simply continue to accept your dry and damaged hair without any action, that will always be your hair’s reality.

4) Neglected Hair Will Continue To Get Worse

Blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons, for many of us, applying heat to our hair can be a daily occurrence.

But guess what? Each time you apply these damaging products to your hair, your hair will just get more and more damaged. Seems pretty logical, and yet many of us continue to do it.

What’s the solution? How can you improve your hair’s appearance while still styling it to your desired look? You need to implement a hair care routine. Plain and simple.

If you don’t, well, then get used to dry and damaged hair.
