Beauty | Hair Favourites



Hi Lovelies! I've been at stage recently of hating my hair. We got to a good place me and the old wig, and then I don't know what happened. I've put it through a lot. Bleaching, bobs, highlights, the lot and here we are, out the other side without any bald patches, some would call that success, I however remain disappointed.

Now don't get me wrong it is in the best condition it has ever been in, but it's a little lack lustre and life is too short to not have hair like Chezza Cole straight off the L'oreal advert is it not? I think this is mainly to do with not actually doing anything with it. I want to have rapunzel hair for summer so the hair dryer and straighteners have been nestled a way in favour of au natural beachy waves, but when I've been leaving the house at 8 in the morning with soaking wet hair still; only to glance in the mirror come 11 o'clock and see what I can only describe as Hagrid's child, well you know it's not a good hair day is it?

So speaking of good hair days this is what I like to use to create mine (when I can actually be bothered).


I actually received this in my last Glossy Box and rest assured I will be re-purchasing. I like to use this if I'm going out, it creates volume without texture and as a girl who hates the whole back combing business but still loves volume, it's perfect. Ingredients such as Argan Oil and Shea Butter leave my hair SO soft but still ready to tackle some bouncy curls that will hold all night. 



If you are a fellow blondie you will know how important a weekly wash with this purple bottle of goodness is. Eliminating brassy tones and bringing out a fresh bright blonde, this is a fair haired girls power product. You can really tell the difference after just one wash, so for a spruce in between highlight sessions this is FAB. I'm actually thinking about going back to my roots (quite literally) and going to the dark side, but for now this is a weekly routine for me. 


Oh palmers, you fabulous brand. I recently ran out of my Milkshake Incredible Milk Leave in Conditioner and between sobs saw this beauty. We all know how great Manuka Honey is so it can't be bad for your hair right? It truly packs a softening punch with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and of course Manuka Flower Honey which fights frizz and helps to improve hair and scalp health. It also smells lovely and does a great job at detangling. 



So after this post where I compared dry shampoos, I confirmed to my self, plus every one confirmed in the comments that Batiste was queen bee of the Dry Shampoo world. However I can't help myself can I and I had to try something different again. I feel like this performs just as well as Batiste but it's not as chalky, BINGO! Weightless, invisible and it smells great. 

How do you tackle a bad hair day?

  2. Bad hair days for me are (pretty much every day *sobs*) usually due to my unabashed laziness, I hate washing it and drying it and have always been told that heat damages hair so I tend to stay away from straighteners and curlers unless I really want my hair to look decent. In a pinch though, I wash it thoroughly and give my scalp a good massage - apparently it's good for the follicles. I love using sulfate-free shampoos as I find my hair feels a lot stronger and thicker. I pop some argan oil in my damp hair and leave it to air dry for about half an hour so it's not sopping wet. My hair retains moisture like nothing else! Then finally, I separate my hair into sections and braid all of my hair until I have around six plaits. Then after spraying some heat protectant and leaving that for a minute I blast my hair with a hairdryer for about fifteen minutes in every way possible. Upside down, to the left, to the right. My hair is never completely dry but it's damp, wavy and has volume (plus it looks clean and a lot thicker than usual). That's my trick, I really need to expand my repertoire.

  3. I've never really been bothered about hair products until recently, but I should probably start because my barnet is in need of a big dose of TLC! I really like the sound of the hair masks, thanks for recommending! x

    Always, Alice

  5. I wish I could get on well with Colab, but it feels like I have to use half a bottle just to see some improvement in my hair! Dry Shampoo is definitely my all time favourite product when I'm feeling lazy!

  8. I have the Colab dry shampoo but to be honest I've kind of forgotten about it. I should really whip it out again because my hair has been misbehaving lately to say the least!
