Over the past month or so I have had really badly damaged hair, so it after having a hair cut I made the decision to really make an effort to look after my hair and keep it in better condition. So I though I'd share with you the products I have currently been using and actually really enjoying. I am pretty fickle with my hair care product as I swap and change a lot until I find one that really suits me, which is where I am now.
The first thing I use is obviously is shampoo and conditioner. Now the brand is I am using is not one I had come across before, as haircare isn't really my thing much more of a make up girl. The brand is Andrew Barton and I am using the S.O.S Super Repair which is exclusive to Asda. I am using the shampoo and conditioner from the range. Seriously these smell AMAZING, they are fragranced with a stunning Brazil nut scent. The shampoo is a great cleanser leaving my hair feeling really clean without a trace of build up. The shampoo is more of a jelly texture when compared to your conventional shampoo, so you really do have to lather it up and massage through your hair and scalp. The conditioner is lightweight but it really does work well due to the high levels of Shea protein it has in it. I only apply the conditioner to the lengths of my hair as it tends to make my roots greasy (I experience this with most conditioners).
Next I give my hair a little towel dry and run just on the ends Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Anti-Breakage Serum. Again this smells amazing, just like chocolate. It is supposed to transform you hair into silky smooth locks due to its unique blend of antioxidant rich ingredients such as coconut oil, keratin proteins and avocado oil. This is a great product as it really does prolong breakage after a trim.
Before drying my hair, I pop it out of its towel give it a brush using Denman AnarKitty 'Ruby' D3 brush. Then I spray a leave-in conditioner and heat defense spray through the length and roots of my hair. The leave-in conditioner I am using at the moment is also from Andrew Barton and from the S.O.S Super Repair range. Again its a good product and smells amazing. The heat defense spray I am using is the James Brown London Heat Styling Protector. Now honestly I haven't got a clue when it comes to heat defence spray, what makes it good and what makes it bad. I just use one and hope it is doing the right thing. Then I blow dry my hair, I start my doing the front then flip my head upside down and do the rest. I find this adds a lot more texture and volume to my hair.
After blow drying I use a little bit of Andrew Barton Frizz Tamer Quick Fix Shine and Control Serum. This really does tame the frizz, it is a nice light oil which manages to keep my hair at bay for about 24hrs. Then run my brush through it all again and apply a little bit more heat protectant.
Now on to styling, I either leave my hair at this point because blow drying gives me the most lovely volumized beachy hair or going in with the straighteners. The straighteners I use are GHD V Gold Max Styler. They are amazing as I have really thick long hair so they get the job done really quickly and well. Once all straight, I apply more of the anti-frizz serum if needed, I style as required usually just as french plait to the side or up in a clip.
Twice a week I like to use a hair mask, currently I am using Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intense Hair Mask, which you can read my review of here. Which is good and does the trick.
I like to get a trim every 8 weeks, as by this time my hair ends it and it feel like a really lovely treat!
Lots of Love
