My Go To Hair Products

Monday, 27 February 2017

While I’m amazing at hoarding skincare products and doing my very best to ensure my skin stays in tip top condition, I’m awful when it comes to maintaining my hair. It pains me to say that I can’t do a thing with my hair other than straighten it and messily curl it. I can’t do cute hairstyles and I refrain from visiting the hairdressers out of fear they’ll shave my head (why do hairdressers not understand what “just a trim please” means?). That being said, when my hair does reach the stage where it’s drier than the Sahara and probably could do with being shaved off, there are a few products I use to sort the abomination on my head out.

Hair essentials

Let’s start with the thing I use multiple times a day and can no longer imagine my life without. I live in the hills of Scotland so naturally, I deal with constant rainy and windy days and my hair is usually a massive knot as a result. Conventional hairbrushes cause my hair to snap and clumps are often pulled out but thanks to the Tangle Teezer, I can brush through the bird’s nest that is my hair with total ease. It has actually made my hair that little bit healthier as I’m no longer destroying it every single time I try to brush it.

Raise your hands if you’re prone to drying your hair as quickly and as lazily as possible! I’m with you on that one. If there’s a hair dryer that can eliminate the damage I do to my hair with my lazy drying ways then I’m all for it. Fortunately, the Panasonic hair dryer was meant for all the people who resent drying their hair as much as I do. It has a “healthy mode” which allows for quick drying while also leaving the hair shiny and manageable. The quick dry nozzle also assists in drying the hair rapidly by separating the hair strands using strong and weak airflows. It also contains a slight acidity which is a similar PH to the human scalp making it perfect for people with sensitive skin.

Hair essentials

I usually don’t have the patience for a hair mask but when my hair needs one, I’ll use the Garnier Ultimate Blends The Strength Restorer. This was actually bought as a last minute purchase before going to Iceland since I was aware the Blue Lagoon was probably going to destroy my hair (spoiler: it did). Garnier hair products and I aren’t the best of friends so I was rather apprehensive about this hair mask doing anything for me but what do you know, it completely saved my hair from looking and feeling absolutely disgusting. I don’t use it as often as I probably should but when I do, there’s a huge difference in my hair.

Hair essentials

I have a habit of switching up my conditioner a lot but there’s one I keep going back to and that’s the Alberto Balsam Coconut and Lychee conditioner. Coconut scented shampoos and conditioners are my thing and I adore the way this one smells. It also does a great job at keeping my hair in check and at £1 per bottle, it’s a total steal!

Finally, we have the only Lush product to feature in this entire post. I know, me with just one Lush product, it’s madness! R&B isn’t exactly designed for my hair type but I use it anyway as it’s such a great product. My hair can be a little frizzy from time to time but R&B helps fight that frizz and it leaves my hair smelling incredible. I do tend to favour the Garnier Ultimate Blends The Strength Restorer Balm over R&B as R&B is a little bit too heavy for my fine hair.

So there you have my go to hair essentials. I really need to implement a haircare routine to rival my skincare routine but that will probably never happen. Maybe one day I’ll learn how to make my hair look as sleek and as healthy as possible but until then, I’ll just keep trying to maintain the current health of my hair with as little effort as possible.
