Fictionary: Dryatus

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.

I have three recurring dreams. 1. That if I take a street with a name in common with one even countries away, it’ll magically transport you, portal-like, where the other one leads. 2. That I discover fabulous new rooms in my own apartment. And 3. that I have wash and go hair that looks just as great as when I spend an hour heat-styling it.

One of these dreams has come true. Read on for deets and this week’s Fictionary entry.And so, for the tenure of the summer, I am on Dryatus. A dryatus is, obv, a hiatus from blow-drying. How is this possible? With LiQWd’s The Perfect Wave ($22), a styling cream that yields glossy waves that would perhaps allow YOU to be the victor of a hair-off with the likes of Gisele Bundchen. And you KNOW I would NOT be dropping a GB ref if it were not warranted. TRUST.

Here’s my get-hot-hair easy styling process. Wash and condition (lately I’m also lurving LiQWD SiLK Moisturizing Deep Conditioning treatment–super emulsifying). Towel dry, then comb with a wide-tooth comb to detangle. I then apply a bit of Alterna Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse (mousse is better than a volumizing spray when you’re air-drying) to my roots, some It’s A Ten Miracle Leave-in Product ($10) (another recent obsesh) on my ends. Next, I blast just the front of my hair (basically just my bangs) with my HANA air Professional Hair Dryer  and style with a round brush. Then, I apply a quarter-sized dollop of The Perfect Wave (which smells like delicious JUICE!) from my ears down to my ends before separating my hair into about 5-6 sections, starting at the bottom. I then twirl each piece into tendrils, let them air-dry and that is IT, my friends. Easy peasy, glorious waves that look better than when I blow out my mane and THEN curl with an iron. I think Dryatus will be a lot more fun than buyatus and guyatus.
