Haircare Routine

Today I'm talking about my favourite haircare products. You know, the ones that actually work and the claims on the product are true! I've found these kind of products hard to come by. Especially for my hair type. I have very thick, extremely long hair that is more straight than curly, but VERY frizzy. It's not particularly dry, just if I don't use the right products I can look like one of those troll dolls.... (although without the vibrant hair colours).

Here's what I use to keep the frizz at bay and take care of my long ombréd locks!

Shampoo and Conditioners


 My go-to duo at the moment has definitely been the L'Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Replenishing shampoo and conditioner. This smells really good and a little goes a long way. It smooths out the hair making it sleek and gets rid of any frizz.


Another firm favourite has been the Garnier Ultimate Blends Silky Smoother shampoo and conditioner. This smells so yummy! The scent is vanilla milk and papaya and it just smells soooo good. This definitely is a 'silky smoother' as it certainly does smooth out the hair and makes it feel silky to touch. This is my favourite variation of the Garnier Ultimate Blends range.




Because I've bleached my hair it is important to maintain that 'fresh' colour. Especially with blonde as it will become brassy over time. To combat the brass and yellow tones in the hair I use this Touch of Silver twice a week purple shampoo. This is amazing stuff! It's super cheap and works better than any other, more expensive purple shampoo I've tried. You just wash your hair with it and leave it in for at least 5 minutes, rinse and then the colour is good as new! The only negative with this product is that it can leave the hair a little dry so I always use a conditioning hair mask straight after I've toned my hair with this purple shampoo.


Hair Mask


My all time favourite has got to be the L'Oréal Hair Expertise SuperPure Intense Mask. You only need a tiny bit to cover the whole hair, leave it on for 5 minutes, then when you rinse and dry your hair there is a noticeable difference to the hair. It is smooth, silky, there is no frizz and it just feels like it has improved the condition of the hair dramatically in 5 minutes! I tend to use this once or twice a week.



Hair Oils and Serums




After I get out of the shower I tend to brush my hair with my tangle teezer then smooth a little of this Argan oil through the lengths and ends of my hair. Then just let the hair air dry. When it's dry it just feels like silk. I love this stuff so much I need to buy some more. It was a Christmas gift and I know it was purchased at Boyes and it was cheap as chips!


 Sometimes when I feel like my hair is feeling dry or the frizz is proving hard to banish I'll need something a bit more intensive. To do this I use this Body Shop Cocoa Butter Beautifying Oil. I have a bit of an obsession with cocoa butter at the minute. I think I'm addicted to the smell... but this product comes in lots of other scrumptious scents too so there's lots to choose from. I literally smother this stuff ALL over my head and hair until it is dowsed in oil. It feels like I use a lot of product but I've had this a while now and It looks like it's hardly been used. So it is certainly a worthwhile investment. I then will either leave the oil in my hair all day or sleep in it, then wash it out. It doesn't leave the hair looking greasy or oily but shiny and nourished.



When my hair is dry and I've styled it down but just want to get rid of any fly-aways or frizziness I use this Vo5 Nourish My Shine Miracle Illuminator. It can be used on dry or wet hair but I tend to use it on dry hair when it's styled. I just run a little of the product through the ends to smooth it all over. This product has a fine shimmer to reflect the light to give the illusion of shinier hair.
