Ever since I had my hair cut at the end of November (I think) I've tried to keep my hair in good condition. Using less heat and avoiding hair products which arent the best for your hair. This has meant that I have become a bit more picky with the products I use, as well as introducing new products into a routine. 

So like I said above, I wanted to use less heat on my hair, so I packed away my hair straighteners and curling wands and made a pact to only use my hairdryer when I really needed it! By doing this it meant that I would eventually cut down the amount of times I washed my hair each week. I used to wash my hair pretty much everyday. I can now go with washing my hair 2/3 times a week. The product that has helped me the most with this was Batiste dry shampoo. We all use it, I've used it for ages. But it is only until recently that its really becoming a favourite of mine, because I now use it so regularly. It makes my hair fresh and also provides volume, which is something I need after a couple of days without washing! I dont want flat hair!

On the days where I do wash my hair I use Sulphate/Paraben free shampoos. My current favourites are those from the Naked range. Styling wise I love the Tigi S Factor Body Booster. For a start it smells of strawberrys and cream, and the scent lasts in your hair which is divine, just like the shampoos I use, the products in the S Factor range are sulphate and paraben free, It provides just the right amount of volume to my locks without weighing it down. I first purchased this a few years ago when Zoe (Zoella) talked about the range in a blog post agggges ago! Another product which I use as an alternative to the body booster is John Masters Organics deep scalp folicle treatment and hair volumiser. I saw this on Celinas blog, her write up about it had me sold, and to be honest I do think it has improved the condition of my scalp and helped with my hair growth. My fringe that I had cut in is now too long to be called a fringe and the length overall seems to have grown a lot quicker than usual. Its a product that I will keep using!

Finally, of course I have to include a hair oil in this post. I have a nice little collection building up of hair oils (again another product I need to condense down and find one 'HG' product) but I thought I would treat myself to a little Moroccan Oil seeing as everyone under the sun harps on about it! I have to say I am really impressed, I use this on my wet hair and a tiny tiny bit on my inbetween washes days to ensure my ends are conditioned. This is something I have been using since I had my hair cut and I feel its helped keep the condition of my hair healthy and helped me avoid the dreaded split ends! I also really like the scent of this oil, which for some reason I didnt think I would. When I finish this bottle I think I will hold off repurchasing untill I have used up some of the others I have in my stash, but this could be a firm contender for my HG hair oil!


Much love,

  2. Batiste dry shampoos are my favourite! I hear a lot of people complaining that it leaves white residue, but it never does with me if I spray in moderation. I really want to try the one for brunette hair, especially as my hair is a medium brown I think it would be a nice contrast if it happened to be too dark x

  6. I'm fighting a constant battle to keep my hair in reasonable condition. The weather here is so, so cold and dry though, it's tricky. I use a lot of hair oils too but Ive yet to try this particular one. Its next on my list though!

    I love Batiste too but I'm starting to think it could be responsible for drying my hair out a lot and causing more breakage..... :(

    Hope you have a very happy new year!

  8. I recently heard that the Moroccan oil is actually meant to be worse for your hair! Apparently it contains silicones which in the long run will damage your hair as it dries it out but initially it will give the appearence of lovely soft hair! Just something to think about, it put me off using it so just thought it would let you know :) I use pure Argan oil from Holland and Barrett and i think it works just as well :)

  10. I really love the scent of Moroccan oil too even though loads of people seem to hate it. Batiste is an absolute staple for me too, literally would be lost without dry shampoo! x

  11. I love seeing other people's haircare routines. I'm always trying to keep my hair healthy as I'm desperate for it to grow! I've got some of the Lee Stafford Moroccan Oil but haven't used it yet, think I'll give it a try this evening. X

  12. I'm still undecided on Batiste, I love how it works but sometimes the smell is a bit weird but it does its job I guess! And I've just got my Moroccan Oil out too, I hadn't thought of applying it on inbetween days so definitely going to try that xx

  13. I'm going to be doing a hair routine soon too :) I love seeing other peoples, I do love hair care & what products are out there. I have the small Moroccan oil too that I actually got sent AGESSSS ago, it's lasting forever which is a good job as I don't thin I'll be able to afford it again
    Fab post my love xx

  16. I usually go for the Tropical one as it's my favourite scent! xx

  17. I haven't tried any of the colour ones, I think your right, if you spray too much in one place you will get the white residue. I usually evenly distribute it through my hair and it blends a lot better! xx

  18. Yes Mine has lasted ages! Im glad I bought the smaller size to give it a try rather than the huge bottle! xx

  19. Try to cut down on using heat, that could be the main source of breakage? I dont think Batiste would do that. Unless you are using it a lot! x x

  20. Ooh I hadnt heard that! I may have to look into getting something a bit more pure when it runs out then! I want to use the least amount of chemicals in my hair as poss! Thanks for the heads up xx

  26. I love moroccanoil, I have a new bottle of it but trying to use up some other oils I also have xx

  27. I've been trying to do the exact same thing with my hair recently! I try only to hair-dry it when I wash my hair and then leaving it as long as possible before I need to use heat again! It's amazing how much of a difference I've seen since I've stopped using so many appliances. I've heard so much hype about the Moroccan Oil too - Is it worth buying? I've always been reluctant because so many hair products I buy do nothing to my hair! Great post :) xx www.bettyvintage.co.uk
