Hair Care Routine

Monday, 8 July 2013

I've never really been one to make a massive fuss of my hair because I don't think my hair is anything special worth fussing over. Don't get me wrong, I've always washed, blow dried and straightened, but I've never gone to the extent that some girls go to. My hair always seems to get to a certain length before it gets stubborn and decides not to grow any longer, so that's something I'm trying to tackle until it reaches my desired length. However, since I've been blogging, I've been reading different tips and tricks and I've actually started my give my hair a little more TLC. This hair care post won't be as exciting or exotic as posts on other blogs, but I thought I'd give you a little insight into what I use on my hair.

My mum is a bit of an Avon fan and while flicking through the mag, I spotted an Avon Advanced Techniques Moroccan Oil shampoo and conditioner. They were half price so I decided to order some and see how it worked with my hair. After using Tresemme for around six months - which according to my hairdresser isn't actually very good for your hair at all despite its salon professional USP - my hair had started to get greasy a lot more quickly than usual, so I wanted to try something new to try and combat this. The Advanced Techniques doesn't have the most luxurious of packaging, which I have to admit I do look for in a product, but it is in fact a really lovely product. The texture is silky smooth and it massages into my hair with ease, giving a really soft and bouncy finish. Once I've washed it, I use the Advanced Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil Leave In Treatment which I apply to towel dried hair. I avoid the roots and spread it through with my fingers from about ear level right down to the tips. It smells gorgeous and I've found really helps to prevent dry split ends and gives my hair a lovely smooth finish. My hair has grown a fair bit over the last few months which I'm sure is down to this, as I haven't been doing anything different apart from using this oil. So if you're trying to kick-start hair growth, then this might be worth a try.

I try to avoid drying my hair at all costs as it's just added heat that my hair could really do without. I always dry my fringe off because it tends to have a mind of its own if I don't, but unless I'm in a major rush I try and let it dry naturally. If I do happen to dry it, then I make sure I give my hair a few sprays of the Tresemme Heat Defence Spray. I also try and use this before straightening or curling to protect my hair against the heat. If I've clipped in my extensions for a night out and use my Babyliss Curling Wand, then I try to maximise the hold by using the Tresemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hair Spray. If I've straightened it, then sometimes I opt for the Vo5 Shine Spray for a glossy finish, although I'm very wary of how much I use as sometimes it can make my hair look a little on the greasy side. This may come as a surprise as most girls absolutely love it, but I'm really really not a fan of dry shampoo. If I'm totally honest, I can't stand the stuff. I mean, I know we use deodorant for under our arms, and dry shampoo is pretty much the same just for our hair, but it makes me feel a little yuck. I don't have a problem with other people who use it, and if it works for you then great - but the results I've had haven't been great and just leave my hair feeling stiff and dry. I know you can get Batiste ones for different coloured hair, which might be worth a try, but for now I only have a bottle stored away for absolute emergency's.  

So there's a little look into what I use on my hair - what products are part of your hair care routine? Are there any products you think I should try?
