Sorry for that naked face pic! haha
My hair hasn’t exactly been the worst can but my hair and scalp tend to get dry fairly easily and I also used to get split ends very quickly. Not that cute of a look when wads of hair just falls out when you comb through it. A bit more on my hair situation: I have dyed hair. Basically because of this, I have to cater towards a routine that conditions my hair and also keeps the colour bright and vibrant. Most, if not all the products I mention, I have used for many years.
Pro-Tip 1: If you have dyed hair like me, stay away from sulphates in your shampoo and conditioners to keep the colour lasting longer. Unfortunately if you have dandruff-prone dyed hair, you will need to alternate your dandruff shampoo with another.
Pro-Tip 2: Change up your shampoo/conditioner to fit the season you’re in. Where I live, it’s currently winter and my hair is a lot drier this time of the year, so I like to use really moisturising products. Similarly, in the summer, it tends to get greasy rather quickly so I use a lighter, more volumising shampoo.
Pro-Tip 3: Leave the conditioner in your hair for 3-5 minutes before washing it out, in the mean time take care of whatever else you need to on your body when you shower.
John Freida: Multi-Tone Revealing Brilliant Brunette Shampoo and Conditioner | $15.99AUD each
Usually I use the Colour Protecting Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner ($15.99 each). The pair together is amazing, I’ve even had friends ask me if I re-dyed my hair because the colour seemed like I came straight out of the salon! There’s barely a nice and fresh scent and after you wash your hair it’s not the bounciest of them all but it’s definitely clean, and your coloured hair will look fabulous. I’ve used it for years now and I would recommend this for those with dryer dyed hair.
As for this one, it was on sale so I thought “why not”. It does a similar thing to the last one but this one is a lot more moisturising, leaving your hair incredibly soft and full looking. Unlike the last one, it doesn’t do too much to protect hair colour but it does help with really dry hair.
Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner | $17.99AUD each
If you’ve read my June Favourites, you’ll know I love the smell of coconut. This keeps my hair feeling fresher longer, and it’s really nourishing and hydrating on my hair… there isn’t much else to say! I usually swap between this and the Everstraight Brazilian Keratin Therapy range, both smell wonderful and I’ve had so many people compliment how my hair smells whenever I use these. I love love love love these!
Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum and Leave In Nourishing Milk | $17.99AUD each
I tried out Argan Oil, I wasn’t a big fan of the smell; growing up, my mum always raved on about the benefits of coconut oil in hair… but I always felt like that made my hair appear too greasy. Hence, the purchase of these two beauties. I use these products interchangeably, because otherwise I find my hair gets too weighed down easily. When I use these, I usually use them in damp, towel-dried hair. A couple of sprays/a pump of the product and distributed mostly through the ends of my hair, working my way up with whatever product I have remaining tends to help avoid heavy dragged down hair. These are great for adding elasticity, bounce, tackle frizziness and reduce everyday damage.
Tony&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray, Limited Edition by Marchesa | $15.99 AUD
This product is worth the price for the 200mL you get! The scent isn’t like typical salt sprays, which I actually enjoy, but rather a fruity and flowery sort of a smell. It’s a light spray compared to others I have tried, with a light hold but great definition. I tend to use this only on days where I know I have to go out the next day but I like to tie my hair up in a bun and spray the product into the bun with my freshly washed hair. When I untie my hair, I have natural looking waves which I add a little more definition into by adding a bit more towards the roots. It’s great and doesn’t leave my hair crunchy and adds a slight texture to your hair which is great when you’re planning on styling it. I’ve yet to try the original version, but that’s next on the list!
