When it comes to my hair we have a love/hate relationship; it can be soft, voluminous and shiny, on the other hand it can be flat, flyaway and very dry on the ends, this normally depends on how lazy I’m feeling (bad Hayley!).
Over the years I’ve tried a variety of different products to try and tame my hair into something I can be proud of. I’m always one to look out for purse-friendly buys and will only occasionally splash out on something more expensive.
Recently, I’ve found that I’m always reaching for the same products and am pretty happy with my hair care routine so I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you!
Bedhead Tigi Superstar Queen for a Day Thickening Spray: I worship this metallic purple bottle of gorgeousness, my hairdresser first introduced me to this beauty and for that I am forever grateful! My hair is very fine and needs all the help it can get to be bouncy and voluminous, a quick squirt of this into the roots of my hair before blow-drying and I am one happy (voluminous) lady. I’ve never seen this in a drug store (correct me if I’m wrong), but it is readily available online.
Lush Roots Hair Treatment: This promises to stimulate the scalp and hair follicles and I’m a sucker for anything that will give BIG hair. I use this around once a week and love the tingling sensation on my scalp, the fresh scent of mint is scrummy too!
VO5 High Volume Hairspray: There’s that ‘volume’ word again (I think I may be obsessed!). I swear by this hairspray, I only picked it up recently after finding that my usual one was out of stock. It doesn’t have that usual disgusting hairspray smell, which is a winner with me! (if it doesn’t smell good, it ‘ain’t going on my head!). It holds my hair in place all day and is so easy to brush out.
Tresemme Heat Defence Styling Spray: I’ve used this heat defence spray for as long as I can remember and it’s never failed me yet. I spray it liberally through my hair before blow-drying and then enjoy the knowledge that my hair is happy and protected.
Batiste Dry Shampoo: I couldn’t live without this product. Ever. If I was told I could only have one haircare product for the rest of my life this would win hands downs. Not only does it refresh my hair when it’s looking limp and in need of washing, it also gives me that much-loved boost of volume in my roots. It may leave a white powdery hue if you don’t rub it in well enough, but as a blonde I can get away with this quite easily!
Loreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner: Again, something that gives thicker and bouncier hair (I seriously have a ‘volume’ problem here!). I never buy the same shampoo and conditioner twice as I like to experiment, however this is one I go back to again and again. After a few washes my hair feels thicker and in better general condition. Lovely!
OGX Coconut Milk Anti-breakage Serum: As my hair is so fine, I pick up split ends like a florist picks flowers (okay, I realise a florist may not pick the flowers themselves but you see where I was going with this!). Ever since I started using this serum I noticed a definite decrease in the amount of split ends and breakages I was experiencing. Be careful to use only 1-2 pumps depending on hair length, as too much leaves your hair looking oily and wet. Also, it lasts forever!
