Current Haircare Routine

Over the past few months I have become alot more interested in haircare. I have spent the past couple of years trying to grow my hair and finally it is at a length I am happy with. While growing it, I was chopping and changing the products that I was using but I have finally found and stuck to these few the past while and I am really happy with my routine. I thought I would show you what products I use on my hair and give mini reviews along the way. 

 John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo & Conditioner - All time favourite shampoo and conditioner right here. I think I have bought one other shampoo & conditioner combo in the past six months and I didn't even finish the bottles and just went straight back to these. I find they give my hair a good clean and make it feel and look thicker without weighing my hair down. They smell lovely too which is always a bonus!

 Aussie 2 Minute Miracle- I know this is quite a controversial product to include. Some people love it and some people hate it. I honestly love the way it makes my hair feel. I only use it once every 3 or 4 washes and leave it on while I shower. It leaves my hair feeling and looking so much healthier and shiny. It is a brilliant quick fix if you feel your hair just needs that little extra pick me up. It's perfect for dry ends for adding that little bit of extra moisture to them. 

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Treatment- I have been after a treatment like this for a while, I tried the John Frieda offering but I just wasn't feeling it. But this...this is just amazing! I take 5-6 pumps and work it through my hair making sure it is well combed through. Then I just blowdry my hair as normal and straighten it. This keeps my hair straight for at least two washes and after I first apply it, it leaves my hair feeling silky smooth and gives me that "straight from the salon" feel.

L'oreal #TXT Volume Spray- Because there is no such thing as hair that is "too big", I spray this through my roots and mid lenths to make sure my hair is really voluminous! I am obsessed with big hair and since my hair doesn't hold a curl that well since it has gotten longer I have been using this to just give it abit of movement. It helps give you second day hair on the first day which is amazing! I love the look it gives when I just spray it at the roots and give it a rustle and I'm ready to go. I am switching between this and the Charles Worthington one which has a little more hold which I also love!

Batiste Dry Shampoo- For the days that my hair is not looking its best I spray a couple of sprays of this through my roots. It helps soak up any excess oil that may be hanging around and just makes my hair look fresher in general. This is the lazy day hair wash in a can! I love that it has a bit of a brown tint to it because I find that the original one comes out quite white on my hair and takes ages to rub in and make sure I don't look like I have just poured talcum powder on my head. But with this it comes out almost the exact colour of my hair so it doesn't take as long to blend in.

The Wet Brush- If you have hair that is really difficult to get a brush through especially after washing, you need this in your like! This glides through my hair and gets rid of all knots completely painfree! It has the added bonus of a handle- I haven't had a brush with a handle in what seems like forever and it makes life so much easier! Even though it is called the wet brush I have been using it on both wet and dry hair, and I find that it works equally well on both. 

GHD Straightners- My trusty GHD's. I don't know how long I have had these but they have never let me down! They are the best quality hair straightners I have ever tried and they really stand the test of time! I don't find that they damage my hair all that much (I'm not the best for using heat protection!) and they always leave a lovely shine to my hair. 

So those are my haircare essentials at the moment. I have been fairly consistent with my routine the past couple of months and my hair has been looking quite alright for it! Let me know if you think there is anything that I would like in my routine or something you think that would fit in quite well and let me know what your favourite hair care product is!
