I thought that I would do a couple of my hair favourites. Over the past years , I hated the shortness of my hair ; for these last three years I have been growing out my hair. I am a natural brunette but when I was younger , I thought that I would follow the latest trend of red hair. Oh how wrong was I ! It looked to say the least very interesting and I have been growing it out ever since. Currently, the bottom of my hair , the ends, are a mixture of red and brown. I have been told that it looks dip dye so it hopefully looks okay.
I try and take care of my hair 24/7 as it has a mind of it's own. Some days , it will be the natural wavy ,curly way but some days it will be a fizzy ball. My dad lives with a hairdresser so finding products which work is quite easy. I tend to look online at products as they usually have others reviews about it.
The first product which I think helps with straightened hair and if you have hair like mine which sometimes goes fizzy after straightening. My life saver in many situations, Is the Schwarzkopf Got2b oil-licious weightless dry oil. This is a basically argon oil which makes your hair go nice and shiny. I asked my hairdresser about it and she said not to use it before using heat due to when heat is applied that it will burn your hair. For my hair, I thought that it would make it look greasy but I brought it any way to give it a try , however, it really works and is great for two-day hair. The price is around £3-4. You get a big 5oz bottle and you only need a small amount. It works by lightly spraying on you hair and brushing it through to the ends. Overall, it leaves your hair looking fresh and glossy.
Now , I think that Schwarzkopf is a great hair care company and works really well. The next product is from the same set as the first but slightly different in the fact that the first one is a spray and this one is an actual oil. This is Schwarzkopf Got2b oil-licious tame and shine styling oil. It's great for two-day hair as it stops fizzy and makes your hair easy to style. You don't need a lot but I think that the price is a bit steep for the size of bottle. At £4 for 50 ml , I would get this product but use when appropriate. You pump a small amount on to your fingertips and work at the roots and brush through to the ends.
The next review is .. as you guessed it another Schwarzkopf product. This product is amazing for two-day hair as it makes your hair look like you have styled your hair. Schwarzkopf Got2b Beach matt Mermaid Look Texturizing Salt Spray, this product makes your hair not only smell amazing but makes it go slightly curly but mainly wavy. I first used for going to a meal after I washed my hair and it worked but not as well as when I used it on two-day hair. You don't need a lot as if over used , it can make you hair very sticky and hard to tame. Its £4 and well worth the money. You spray at the ends on your hair and grab a small amount of your hair and scrunch it in your hands and leave it to curl.
Moving away from Schwarzkopf, I thought that I would include a heat protector. This VO5 Plump it up Blow Dry Lotion at 200ml , is great for adding volume and protects your hair at the same time. I have done some research, it's apart of a range of similar Plump it up products and I cant find what temperature it protects too. However, I find that for my thick hair it adds volume greatly. It , also, works on fine hair too. It costs around £3.70. I would totally recommend it if you need a bit of a hair boost. It's best works if you dry your hair upside down ; I recently used it normal and it worked just as well.
Finally, the next product is what every girl needs and that's dry shampoo. The amount of days in which my hair looks horrible and needs a boost until I can wash it later , are un-countable. There are many brands that sell dry shampoo but the one I want to review is Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush. Not only does it smell AMAZING but works a great deal. The only down side is that you have to rub it in a great deal so that you don't look like you have grey hair. I have not found one which is over £3.
( Another amazing brand for dry shampoo would be VO5)
Well , that's my favourite hair products at the moment so I thought that I would share with you some of them.
Don't know if you know but I post every Monday as I usually go shopping during the week end so I have some tie to write a haul.
