Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe refers to herself as “an acquired taste.” But one thing her 1.6 million Instagram followers seem to agree on is her hair is always to their taste—long and luscious with perfect balayage highlights and exquisitely-shaped hair waves. Curious about her beautiful hair secrets? Get ready because she’s telling all!
Blow Dry Hair with Care
“I try to limit shampooing my hair to a few times a week,” says Kaitlyn. “Then, when I blow dry, I apply a protective product like Biolage BlowDry Glotion. I divide my hair into sections and blow dry with a round brush. I avoid hot air; I put my dryer on a cooler setting. Doing so means it takes a little longer to blow dry my hair, but cooler air is healthier in the long run. So think low and slow—low heat and a slow blow dry. It will last for days and prevent damage.”
Wavy Hair Over Night
Wondering how Kaitlyn achieves her awesome wavy hairstyles? “Before bed, I put my hair up with a scrunchie from my DEW line, or in a braid,” she reveals. “When I wake up, I have natural waves.”
Hair Masks Matter
Regular conditioning helps keep hair healthy, and a mask offers you an extra boost of moisture and hair shine. “I use a mask on my hair once a month when my hair is feeling dull and dry,” says Kaitlyn. “Right now, I am loving the new Biolage HYDRA SOURCE Deep Treatment Pack!”
Red Carpet Hair Prep Secret
If you’re heading to the stylist before a special occasion—a wedding or party, for example--try Kaitlyn’s red carpet trick. “Before an event or hitting the red carpet,” she says, “I shampoo my hair and air dry it with Biolage AirDry Glotion before meeting with my hair stylist. This way it’s clean and also has enough texture to support the style she creates.”
Let the Air Style Your Hair
Heat hurts—especially if it’s from a too-hot blow dryer or curling iron. That’s why Kaitlyn allows her hair to air dry as often as possible. “At least once a week, especially when I’m off the road and relaxing at home, I let my hair air dry,” she confirms. “I like to use Biolage AirDry Glotion, because it controls my frizz without the need to use heat!”
