Hi dolls. How are you all? Did you have a lovely weekend? AMAZING weather or what?! I’ve been asked to do this post by lots of people… It’s all about my hair & what I use, do etc. A lot of you asked after seeing THIS post. To be really honest, I’m so over my hair. It’s so long & time consuming. Usually, I wash it at night, go to sleep, wake up, whack a bit of product in it (sort out the front untamed bits) & I’m off to go! But, when I have some time on my hands, I like to pamper myself - who doesn’t ey?
Usually, I use Herbal Essences because I LOVE the smell. But this summer I thought I’d go for something a little different. I’ve been using this new ‘VO5 for YOU’ range for about 2 months now & I’m quite liking it! My hair looks & feels great since using it. I love the fruity scent it has. I can’t wait to try the ‘Gloss me Smoothly’ & ‘Plump me Up’ shampoos! I wish they did a curly range in this, because I can see myself getting along with it really well.
It was only recently I actually started combing my hair after it had been washed for a long time. Ever since I’ve stopped straightening my hair on a daily basis I like to keep it looking curly/messy Not straightening my hair so often has improved the condition of my hair IMMENSELY! I would highly recommend ditching the straighteners if you’re looking for healthier & longer hair.
TANGLE TEEZER - I got the amazing Tangle Teaser a few weeks ago. I don’t know how it does it, but it works like a CHARM!! I don’t use my hair brushes/combs any more because of this little baby!
MOROCCAN OIL- I use this oil every day! It reduces the drying time for my hair (which is something I need as it’s so thick & long) but also leaves my hair feeling unbelivably soft. I can totally tell if I’ve forgotten to put it in as my hair feels crispy… if that even makes sense? This stuff is a GOD SEND! I love the fact that even if it is oil, it doesn’t leave my hair greasy - that’s the last thing I want!
BUMBLE AND BUMBLE B.B GEL - this stuff is AMAZING! Even though my hair is long & thick yet it hold curls in my hair for days!! Not only that but it doesn’t leave my hair with that hard gel feel. It gives my hair amazing texture & has made me want to buy more Bumble and Bumble products. I just wish it was travel friendly To open the product you twist the top & I can’t risk taking it with me when I’m travelling as I’d hate for it to untwist & squirt all over my stuff! Other than that, it’s a great gel!
For the days that I actually have time to do my hair I use two extra products.
TRESEMMÉ HEAT DEFENCE (RRP £5)- I’m so forgetful with heat defence but always try my hardest to remember when I’m curling bits of my hair or straightening bits. This stuff is amazing. Smells great, doesn’t break the bank AND protects your hair. I love the packaging, the spray-handle is great, makes me feel like a hair dresser! LOL
LEE STAFFORD’S MY BIG FAT TEXTURISED HAIR SUPER SPRAY (RRP: 9.29)- I’ve only recently got this. It definitely makes my hair bigger for the first hour or so… But overall it doesn’t last for very long, probably due to the weight of my hair. Also I find it a little too sticky for my liking. I am really disappointed in this (I had high hopes for it) - I wouldn’t get this again, no way. For that price I’d rather pay more & get something better. I think I’m going to stick to Bumble and Bumble products! But hey, it might work on SHORTER hair?
These are the two tool I use to straighten & curl my hair, standard!
GHD STRAIGHTENER IV STYLER (RRP: £99): Can’t complain about my GHDs. I’ve have these for a good 3 or 4 years now
BABYLISS PORCELAIN CURLING WAND (RRP: £25.49): I finally got my hands on this wand earlier this year, after wanting it for so long & it’s great. It truly creates lovely curls & for the price, it’s a BARGAIN! Full review coming soon
So, all those products & tools creates this! Here you can see just how long my hair is. I reckon if my hair was short, it would be naturally curlier. However, because of the length my hair is very wavy. I don’t really need to curl any bits, but I like to do it anyway From the back my hair looks EVEN longer!
Here you can see the waves that the Babyliss wand makes. This is literally my everyday hair. It’s got to a length now where I rarely have it down though… I’m always tying it up half way through the day because it just gets in the way. By the way, I always talk myself in & out of chopping it all off. I think deep down I’m too SCARED to cut it off
I always get asked if I have ‘ombre’ hair. But it’s nothing like that at all. After being in Mexico, the coloured parts of my hair became LIGHTER in the sun. But in fact my hair is like this…
I have ‘FLASHES‘ in my hair - I’ve had it like this for years now. But, I think now (because it’s longer) you can see them colour more? It’s great because your roots will rarely show, which means you don’t have to get your hair done every few months
I also get asked a lot if my hair is real… Yes! It’s 100% REAL, dolls. My parents were blessed with thick hair & have passed that gene onto me I have never, ever, worn extensions in my hair… but for some weird reason I’ve always wanted to? LOL
I don’t follow any rules with hair cuts, I get it cut when I feel like it (I know, that’s really bad right?!) But I do like to take care of it as much as I possibly can… Even though it can be a pain at times. Hope you enjoyed my current hair routine, gems! If you’ve got any questions or anything just give me a shout
Are there any hair products that you would recommend? I’d love to know
