She doesn’t wash her hair every day
When it comes to the age-old debate of how often we should wash our hair, Judd sits firmly on the less is more fence, saying it’s the best tip she’s picked up from working with professionals.
“Avoid washing your hair every day,” she says. “Over-washing can strip your scalp of its natural oils.”
Scalp care is key
Scalp scrubs and scalp serums have become the norm on hair care shelves, and Judd says she’s found looking after hers to be just as important as taking care of her hair; “it is literally the root to beautiful, healthy and shiny hair.”
She uses a clarifying shampoo to detoxify and remove impurities, as well as product build-up (from all that dry shampoo).
Beach waves are always in
Despite that beach waves video being from 2016, Judd says she still gets requests on how she nails the style.
“It’s very simple. I don’t need hair sprays; Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk ($14.99 at Priceline) is all I use along with my hair curler to help give my hair volume and texture, while keeping it from being floppy and preventing my curls from falling out,” she tells marie claire.
She also says not much has changed in her step-by-step overall, “I use the ghd extra-wide tong ($250 at ghd.com/au) but also use their straight styling irons from time to time to achieve a relaxed wave with the flick of a wrist.”
Sleek hair is the dream
Just like many of us covet Judd’s hair, she has her own envies too. “Kim Kardashian has amazing healthy, shiny hair,” she says.
As for the one trend she’s always wanted to try? “A severe middle part, sleek, straight look but I fear my face is too long to pull it off!”
Ask for ‘bronde’
When she goes to the hairdresser, Judd says it’s all about achieving a ‘bronde’ look that’s “not too warm but not too cool either”.
She’s also one for seasonal changes; “in winter I add more chocolate foils to slightly darken it,” she says. “[And] in summer I add more blonde foils to lighten it, but the base colour remains the same.”
Like balayage, only better.
