An overview of my favourite products to use on my hair at the moment!
Haircare isn’t something I really talk about a lot on my blog, and it also isn’t something I’m super conscious of. In all honesty, I’m like most people, and my hair is forever a mess of split ends! However, I do have a current favourite ‘routine’ I’ve settled into and I figured I share it with you. Just as a bit of background information, my hair is quite long and isn’t in the best of shape, though I refuse to cut any off other than 0.00005cm each time I go to the hairdressers because long hair is my thing. I also wash it every day or every other day, and it’s quite thin and lacks volume, something which I have tried combatting in my haircare routine!
So firstly, my shampoo and conditioner. I use the L’oreal Elvive Fibrology range which has a thickening conditioner and shampoo. After a while, I’ve sort of started to find this isn’t doing masses for my hair anymore and I imagine that when I run out of this, I’ll most likely switch to another brand (any recommendations are welcome!). However, when I started using these I did notice that my hair seemed thicker and a touch more voluminous and easy to style.
For me, most of my hair care takes place outside of the shower, and I really love using things overnight. Due to my hair being pretty thin, it tends to get very knotty and scraggly looking within a day, hence why I have to brush it so much. To make sure it stays soft, I really love these following couple of things!
Firstly, I use the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Shine Deep Treatment. Now, if I use this for three minutes as advised, I don’t really notice much of a difference. Everything seems a little softer, but for really silky smooth hair, I wet my hair and leave this on overnight. I wake up with super smooth, silky hair and all I have to do is wash it out! I also use this Josh Wood Radiant Shine hair treatment oil which I apply overnight to dry or wet hair, usually just to my horrifically damaged ends and it helps my hair look a touch more glowy and feel more soft in the morning!
Whenever I really feel like pushing the boat out (which, let me inform you is not often – I’m lazy as heck) then I’ll use these two! I use the Philip Kingsley elasticizer before shampoo and I find it helps to give my hair that extra bounce, and the Percy Reed Wonder Balm when I feel my hair needs more moisture, again I use this overnight on wet hair.
The final product I use on my wet hair just before I’m about to dry it, and I use a few pumps and run it through my hair for some body and bounce!
Hope you enjoyed reading about the products I use on my hair! What haircare products are your favourite?
