Current Hair Favourites

I have totally unruly hair. I often say that if Russel Brand and Kate Bush had a love child, it would look somewhat like me. My curls are great but in the winter I usually brow dry my hair straight. Curls, for me, are better in summer when it is warm and I can afford to leave my hair to air dry. I am trying to grow my hair so I am trying to wash it less, put it up more and keep it in tip top condition.

My "go to" shampoo has been the Kiehl's Amino Acid shampoo*. This smells absolutely stunning- like Hawaiian Tropics sun cream! I am a huge fan of coconut oil and this product contains a fair amount of it. It also is paraben free and silicone free meaning it does not weigh my hair down. It makes my hair feel squeeky clean. Like many people, I have an easily irritated scalp and I have found that products with no silicone in them are better for me. I follow my shampoo up with a conditioner. My conditioner of choice at the moment is the Ever Sleek conditioner by L'Oreal. I am a big fan of the sulphate free range of L'Oreal products. They seem to work really well with my often coarse hair. This conditioner makes my hair less frizzy and makes it more manageable to blow-dry. I apply a 50p size amount in the shower, brush it through with my Tangle Teezer and leave it on 2-3 minutes before rinsing (I usually shave my legs during this time!).

Post shower, I towel dry my hair. I will usually moisturise (I'm being a very good girl since I've started to use my Creme de Corps from Kiehl's), get dressed then finish my hair. A big mistake people make is putting products in soaking wet hair. Your hair should be at least half dry before you put products in. I sometimes would take the hairdryer to my hair and just "blast dry" it until it's not as damp. I will then apply 2 pumps of Tresemme Platinumn Strength Leave In Conditioner*. I have found this makes the ends of my hair look much healthier. I blow-dry my hair and usually follow this with a quick run through of the GHD's. Finally, I finish my hair with a pump of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil*. I have been using this for months and a little goes a long way. It easily rivals many of the high end oils on the market. It makes my hair smooth and adds extra shine. I also love this dry oil as a treatment the night before I'm washing my hair. 3-4 pumps in the ends to help combat dryness has been working a treat!
