Favourites & Empties: Haircare
My hair has been through a lot in the past few years, and I mean UH LOT! From letting my hairdresser chop it all off to insisting I want white hair like Daenerys Targaryen (and then every other colour under the sun… pastels, I’m looking at you), to what has become my signature (accidental) dip dye. So a few months ago, I figured it was about time I started looking after my locks and figured I’d share my wonder products and empties!
UBUNTU REPAIRING MIST | COLOUR REPAIR SPRAY | HONEY AND OAT MASK | FLUFF EASE HAIR MASK| MIRACLE MOIST SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER | LAVENDER AND MINT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER | HONEY AND OAT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
Shampoo and Conditioner
I was introduced to Paul Mitchell hair care a while back and since the products have become firm favourites. If you haven’t tried anything from PM before, you need to grab the express dry wash… no more powdery dry shampoo, no more distinctive batiste scent that says I could not be bothered washing my hair! But back onto the shampoo and conditioner, the lavender and mint set smells incredible and leaves my hair feeling soft, swishy and ultra clean.
When it comes to budget hair care, Aussie is my go to brand. After dying my hair every colour under the sun, I’m always on the lookout for moisturising products and Miracle Moist ticks the boxes. Plus, when my budgets tight, Aussie doesn’t break the bank!
I was so excited to try to label.m honey and oat collection (it smells just like the Oatifix face mask from Lush = dream pamper combo). The shampoo is refreshing and, when paired with another conditioner, absolutely fine but my hair just does not get on with that conditioner. Whilst the label claims it’s lightweight, I find my hair has 0 volume which makes being a sassy gal with an on point hair swish just that much more difficult!
When it comes to the label.m hair mask, I wasn’t expecting too much but I was really please with how soft and light my hair felt after use! I left it on for around half an hour (Netflix in the bath, ays) and let it get to work on my damaged ends. I got around 3 masks from the tub and have long, thick hair (yes it’s a nightmare to dry) but there’s another hair mask that I just can’t resist…
Lush Frizz Ease is my abso fave! Even though it uses henna and smells a little odd, it just works wonders on my hair. I usually pull it through the mid to end section of my hair but find when I’m getting a little frizzy on top, a small amount run through does the trick. My hair is more manageable and behaves much better after use and I managed to get 6 masks from my last pot!
I apply some form of hair repair spray after every wash, especially to my ends. The Lee Stafford spray has been in my life for a few years and I always find myself going back to it. If I ever forget to use it, I notice my hair is a lot more unruly! The Paul Mitchell spray is legit super food for your hair (Oh hey, Quinoa!) and it sparkles, so can things really improve from there? I’m still test driving this but first impressions are fab!
