So for this post, I am going to talk about my hair. I love my hair, I feel like I have been blessed. All the women in my family have ridiculously thick, voluminous hair. My little sister’s is so long she can sit on it. So I would be lying if I said to you that a lot of it wasn’t genetic. But here is a list of what I do to keep it this way:
- I actually have AWFUL dandruff, it may even be psoriasis, I should probz go to a doctors. But because of this I only have to wash my hair like once a week because it’s so dry and just doesn’t get greasy. This also means that I always start off a hair wash with T-Gel (I tend to go for the sensitive scalp one because it smells nicer).
- Shampoo & Conditioner – I always try and spend a bit more on these. I tend to go for ones for bleached hair as they make the highlights pop a bit more. At the minute I use Toni&Guy Illuminate Blonde shampoo and conditioner, and they are definitely doing the job. You can find it here: Shampoo, Conditioner.
- Hair masks – At the minute I am using the L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Long Hair mask because it was feeling a little straw-like. And after only 2 uses the stuff is working wonders so I will definitely be buying it again! Hair Mask
- I absolutely swear by the OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk anit-breakage serum, find it here. this tuff works miracles! Whenever it’s feeling a bit dry and drab I put some of this on and let it soak in and BAM! Shiny and new.
- Hairdressers – after some dying disasters back in year 9 I only let hairdressers near my hair with dye. NEVER AGAIN. It is so worth spending money on getting it done nicely. I don’t go for haircuts that often (maybe like every 6 months) and that is why I go for a balayage: so the roots are nice and low maintenance.
- Styling – I actually always use straighteners to curl my hair. I never got the hang of using wands and my hair is quite stubborn so they don’t really work for me. I try to avoid using heat toooooo much, but I still do quite a bit.
So there you have it. A lot of my routine is just kinda leaving it to do it’s own thing.
