This week, we caught up with the beautiful Saadiya from the super cool, ever-inspiring blog that is That Girl Saadiya (seriously, this is one blog you’ll want to bookmark - it’s full of gorgeous outfits and blogger interviews, not to mention a shedload of other miscellaneous pearls of wisdom you won’t want to miss).
Are you as big a fan of Saadiya and her flawless tresses as we are? Then read on to discover her feelings on DIY hair makeovers and why she’s not a big fan of green locks...
Describe your daily hair care routine.
My daily hair routine is pretty basic! In the mornings I just spritz my hair with some water and a mix of oils to moisturise it, and I use some leave in conditioner if it's feeling extra dry that day. Kinda boring to be honest but it's quick and easy.
Tell us some of your favourite quick and easy hairstyles.
I love the top bun as it's a quick, easy, no-nonsense style if you’re having a busy day! I also love experimenting with braids or using a headscarf to accessorise with as that's something different and can make your hair look more interesting.
Have you ever had a complete hair disaster?
I wouldn't say I've had a complete hair disaster, but I remember getting my hair cut short when I was younger and I ended up haaaating it until it grew out, which seemed to take forever! Now every time I get a trim I get super anxious!
If you could only take three hair products with you to a desert island, what would they be?
Hmm, it would have to be the products I'm loving at the moment which are the Beautiful Textures Curl Control, Beautiful Textures Leave In Conditioner and the Moroccan Oil Treatment - they're so good and do exactly what they claim to do.
Have you ever been tempted to give your hair a DIY makeover?
All the time! Unless it's something complicated, I prefer doing my hair at home as I know exactly what I want and how I want it to look. Recently I've been thinking about changing my colour by using some red henna dye as I think it's easier and safer to use at home. I've been lusting after dark red tones with a brown tint for a while now, so might give it a try!
Who is your ULTIMATE hair crush?
I have two - blogger and Youtuber Sammie from Beauty Crush and model Samio. They are definitely my ultimate hair crushes - they always look so stunning and I love how they rock the curls!
Whose hair are you not a big fan of?
Hmm, if I had to pick someone I would say Amber Rose simply because I'm not a fan of her hair colour... sorry!
What are the worst hair crimes you've ever seen being committed?
Probably having green hair. Although, I'm being quite biased as I dislike the colour green in general! But I don't think it's a very flattering colour for hair. Any other colour I think is fine though - I recently saw a girl rocking electric blue hair which was cool!
What hair trend do you think has had its day?
I would say the undercut on long hair. I'll admit I wasn't a huuuge fan when it first became a trend, but now I just think 'ok we get it, let's move on now' (sorry to all you undercut lovers!).
What's the best hair advice you've ever received?
The best advice I've received was probably to lay off the heat! I haven't used heat for a couple of months now and it's worked wonders for my hair, helping with split ends and breakage. It also means that I've been using fewer products to try and repair heat damaged hair which is a bonus.
