Oh holy sweet Jesus it’s May?! Where did the last 4 months go?! Gosh. Okay let’s move on from that generic start to a post on the 1st of a month and let’s get started. One of my targets for this year was to grow my hair longer then it has ever been (which isn’t very as the longest it’s been it just below my shoulders) but make sure it was healthy as well. As I am in the pool at least 3 times a week my hair is constantly at battle with chlorine and on top of that I dye my hair so growing it out and keeping it healthy is a tough task. However so far so good, I have been growing it since January and I am happy with where it is! I have used an array of hair care products on it over the last 4 months but I thought I would share with you the products that I have stuck too throughout the process.
|So Far So Good!|
The first products I have kept constant is the brand of shampoo and conditioner I have been using, Bed Head. A while ago I noticed that B&M Bargains was stocking the big bottles of Bed Head products for only £9.99 a bottle, WOW! I was amazed so I stocked up and I definitely don’t regret it. The only thing is that when I go back to get more they don’t always have the same type in so I have to change it every time I need a refill; at the moment I have Moisture Maniac Moisturizing shampoo and Superstar Conditioner which is said to be for thick massive hair and I love both of them. They keep my hair soft, shiny, strong and on top of that they smell unreal which is always a bonus. I like the conditioner as well because it work wonders in it always seems to give my hair a new lease of life but on top of that you don’t have to leave it in for 4 days for it to work, 3 minutes and then you are done. Fabulous or what? So if you are looking for some new shampoo or conditioner or you are just a Bed Head lover, go check it out and see if a B&M near you have this offer in.
The next thing I have been loving the last few months has been the Aussie Miracle Colour Insurance Leave In Conditioner (phew mouth full) which I actually mentioned previously in a haul post; I got it as part of a deal in Superdrug at the time but I will leave a link to it below if you want to have a look. I love this spray. I normally use it after I have been in the pool just to give it a little extra care and it does absolute wonders. It smells lovely and it just makes my hair more manageable because not only am I going to have long hair but it’s extremely thick as well. It’s so easy to use as well, all you do is spray into damp hair after washing, comb through then you are done; I highly recommend it especially if you dye your hair like me or put it through as much damage as I do. Damn you chlorine!
The final thing I love which has been raved about all over the internet is hair oil; I currently use the Organic Argan Oil by Arganis Spinosa which I found in TK Maxx, again I have wrote about this in a haul post which I will leave the link to. I love hair oil because you only need to use a little bit and all you do is rub it into either damp or dry hair and Bish bash bosh it’s done. When my hair is wet I rub it in from the middle to the ends of my hair but when it’s dry I tend just to rub a little into the ends after it has been styled and it just helps to hide any split ends. If you have not used hair oil before I highly recommend it and if you don’t want to fork out a fortune on it then don’t worry, most brands have released their own version and you can get a bottle for as little as £5.
If you have any hair care products you would like to recommend to help my hair stay strong and healthy please tell me and I hope this has helped you.
Happy Wednesday/first day of the month kittens! Love Hann xx
