Summer Locks : How To Keep Yours Smooth & Shiny!

batiste-dry-shampoo-1350316949

Being an Aussie Girl, I love the beach, the sand, the salt and the sun, but there’s one thing I don’t like about summer – dry, brittle and broken hair!
I’ve collected a mix of my hair go-to’s that add the soft and silky elegance my my own do. There’s always something to be said about the girl with long and healthy locks!

DE LORENZO ET EQUALIBRIUM MASQUE
The answer to all my prayers! I use this deep repair treatment masque to soften my ends, especially after seeing the hair dresser! It is super essential to continue to look after your ends just as it is your roots. De Lorenzo Equilibrium Treatment Masque is a intensive and extremely nourishing treatment that infuses moisture from the internal structure of the hair and removes external dryness. Not only is this magic potion good for all hair types, it will restore strength, health and natural shine. Plus, it is also Vegan, Australian Owned AND smells delicious. Win win!

MOROCCAN OIL
Absolutely the best thing since sliced bread. I always pop about a penny size of oil into the palm of my hands and work into the ends of the hair. It helps to seal the cuticle and prevents sun damage and split ends. If you have blonde hair, you can also use the ‘light’ version of this, as Moroccan Oil has been known to darken blondes from time to time!

BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO

Dry Shampoo is probably the best invention for oily roots / thin hair combos. It is absolutely perfect for adding volume AND dismissing that feeling of ‘I couldn’t be bothered washing my hair’ kinda guilt. We all do it and thats exactly why we all NEED it in our lives. My fave is the Batiste Dry Shampoo range – available from almost every store known to man. They also come in a variety of different fragrances / textures / cute coloured bottles. So take your pick!

KERASTASE CIMENT THERMIQUE (HEAT PROTECOR)

This is perfect for summer for reconstructing the damage caused not only by the sun but by your heated tools: think hair straightener, curler, hair dryer ect. Ladies, you should all know by now that you should NOT be using ANY of these heated tools without the protection of a heat protector for your hair! The Kerastase formula is simple to use – leave a penny sized amount in your hair and smooth over in an instant, starting from the ends. It also acts like a leave in conditioner even if you’re not using heat to style, so don’t wash it out until you’re due for a wash.

Ciment Thermique

Of course, it is always highly recommended you head to a reputable salon to colour and help maintain healthy hair. I always go to Blow Dry Bar in Port Melbourne for my colours and blow waves, and I highly recommend you try them too!

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕

  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack

  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
