From coloring my hair darker, bleaching parts of it, swimming in the pool and ocean, blow-drying it, and flat-ironing it, my hair takes a lot of abuse. Since my hair is neither curly nor straight {but a weird, inconsistent sorta wave}, styling can be a challenge. But with Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Hair Repair Ultimate Repair line of products, I’m able to style my hair either curly or straight and it looks great either way! The Ultimate Repair line has three times the amount of liquid keratin for extra strength repair.

The Gliss Hair Repair Ultimate Repair line of products includes Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Shampoo, Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair conditioner, Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Anti-damage Mask, and Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Express Repair™ Conditioner. I began by washing and conditioning my hair according to the manufacturer’s directions. Next, I used the Anti-Damage Mask. Apply this mask to your hair, leave it in about 1 – 2 minutes, rinse, and towel dry your hair. I actually combed my hair with the mask in it to make sure I got out all of the tangles.

Now my hair is ready to style! I began with a curly look. I sprayed several squirts of the Express Repair Conditioner into my hair and combed it through. Next, I flipped my head over, and gently scrunched it with my hands. This gave me a gentle curl that allows me to leave the house just minutes after getting out of the shower. I tend to avoid hair products that give my hair that crunchy feel, but with the Express Repair Conditioner, my hair was soft to the touch and wasn’t frizzy.

To straighten my hair, I applied a little extra Express Repair Conditioner. After that, I quickly use a hair dryer on high to remove most of the moisture from my hair {it looks like a mess at that point, but that’s okay}. Then I section my hair using ponytail holders and flat-iron each portion at a high heat. When all of the waviness has been straightened, my hair is ready to go.

Do you see how healthy my damaged wavy hair looks? The color is vibrant, the fly-aways are minimal, and I don’t see any split ends. Most importantly, my hair doesn’t feel dry and it is very soft despite how coarse the texture is naturally. And I can comb my fingers through my hair because it is tangle-free.

When my hair is straight, it’s so much easier to style, so I added a cute French braid in the front. I tend to throw my hair in a ponytail each day {more like an “I just did a high-intensity workout at the gym mom bun”}, but when I braid the front, it keeps the hair from going in my eyes, so I’m more inclined to leave it down.

I’m really happy with the overall look and feel of my hair. I styled it yesterday, and after sleeping on it, my hair actually looks even silkier and softer. Generally I have to add a lot of serum or coconut oil to my hair to prevent it from looking damaged, but the Gliss Hair Repair Ultimate Repair line of products allowed me to get a great style without weighing my hair down with oils.
