“I love messy hair. Like messy almost undone. I love it actually when I had just woken up, and I shower but I don’t wash my hair. Then I put a bit of dry shampoo.”

Editor’s tip: Yup, dry shampoos are not only good for cleansing. It’s also a secret ingredient to a great messy hairstyle! Use the TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo.

Fave trick for bad hair days:

“Mid-part and then tie it to a low ponytail.”

Hair advice to Filipinas:

“I think more than anything, own your hair. If you have curly hair, own it. If you have wavy, own it. Straight, own it. There’s always a way to elevate the look, but I think it’s always better when you do less damage on your hair. So don’t go to the extreme of heat ironing, curling—anything that has [an] infusion of heat [because] I feel like that really damages the hair. If you own your hair, you can wear it like how it’s supposed to be.”

Editor’s tip: Whenever you style your hair using heated styling tools, don’t forget to spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair to prevent damage.
