Since I had a decent hair cut back over Easter, I’ve been consciously trying to look after my hair more, avoid heat as and when I can, and utilise hair products. I also never realised quite how many hair products I own, and seeing as I finish uni for good in a matter of days and will be moving out at the end of summer i’ve also been trying to use things up and have discovered some old and new favourites.
The Tresemme Renewal Hair and Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner are one of my all time fave hair duos, as I have a very sensitive scalp that is due to the odd flake or three (tmi, I know) if I use the majority of other brands. I find you only need a little shampoo, and my bottles normally last me a while longer than normal shampoo and conditioners do as well. They don’t break the bank and are pretty much always on some sort of deal in Superdrug or Boots.
I’m also trying to make sure I always use a hair protectant of some sort when blow drying, and especially if I straighten or curl my hair, and the Blow Pro Heat Is On protective daily primer is a perfect multi-tasker as it can be used on clean, damp hair and also on clean, dry hair for blow dry touch ups or restyling. I’ve had my current bottle just under a year now and it’s still going strong! I bought this in Superdrug but I couldn’t find it anywhere online, bizarrre, although I believe it cost me about £6 at the time, on some sort of offer.
I typically have quite fine hair that can be pretty volumised at the start of the day but quickly drops and goes pretty flat, and over time i’ve found a few fab products to help create some lift that stays! Of course my number one product is the Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray, which I have talked about a few times before (post here). It’s perfect as it instantly creates bigger hair. Simply spritz throughout hair, and ruffle with your fingers for an extra voluminous tousled look! Another product I have been enjoying to create volume, is the KMS California Hair Play Dry Wax , another multi tasker, you can use this product on damp or dry second day hair to create a super texturised finish. Don’t be put off by the word ‘wax’ as it’s just a super amazing spray and you won’t be left with year 9 style waxed hair, don’t worry!
Lastly i’ve been loving looking at other peoples favourite hair products and what they reccommend for healthy hair. In particular this Allcures article has some fab hair tips for spring, including copper coated bristle brushes for those with sensitive scalps (me) and great tips for redheads, auburn is the in colour apparently!
What are your favourite haircare products at the moment, and what are your tips for healthy hair?
