It’s week 2 of the Best of Beauty Blog Challenge (#BOBBlogChallenge) and this week the focus is on those hair care items that we just couldn’t live without. I’ve really had to sort out a good hair care routine as I have longer hair which can be a nightmare if it’s not treated properly, so it has been nice to put together my hair heroes this week. Please let me know what your must-have hair products are as I’m always open to recommendations!
The first product that I reached for when I knew that the topic was hair heroes was a no brainer, and it’s the incredible Tangle Teezer. My hair is neither thick nor thin but there’s a lot of it and it is extremely prone to tangles, especially after washing, so detangling used to be a nightmare for me. I really can’t be without this brush now as it does an amazing job of smoothing out knots without any pain or tears and although it is a bit more pricey at £10.99, it’s a great investment that will save a lot of time and effort when it comes to brushing your hair.
I’m not very loyal when it comes to shampoo as I like to chop and change depending on what state my hair is in, but it’s normally very oil prone at the roots and dry at the ends so a deep cleanse is a must. I’ve found that while some deep cleansing shampoos do a great job of leaving your hair squeaky clean, they can also be very drying and weigh your hair down which I’d much rather avoid. Thankfully the Mega Shampoo from Aussie does a great job of cleaning my hair and also giving it a bit of lift at the roots so I’d definitely recommend this shampoo to others. I might even go as far to repurchase this shampoo which really says a lot about how much I like it!
As I’ve already mentioned, my hair is very tangle prone and this means that a leave-in conditioner needs to be in my hair routine. I’ve tried a few but my absolute favourite has to be the Boots Ingredients Coconut & Almond Leave-In Conditioner which I’ve already raved about so many times on the blog already. It does a fab job of detangling my hair, adding a little bit more shine and it also smells lovely so it’s a joy to use. The best part is.. it’ll only set you back £1.49! This is a haircare product that I’ve repurchased so many times already and I’m sure there will be plenty more bottles coming my way in the future.
My last haircare hero had to be my dry shampoo of choice as it’s a product I just can’t be without. Dry shampoo is such a handy product to have as it freshens up oily looking hair without being washed and it’s also great for giving a bit more volume and texture to the hair if it’s looking a bit flat. I was a loyal user of Batiste for years but I’ve now been converted to the No Drought Dry Shampoo from Lush which is simply powder in a bottle. This powder does a great job of soaking up oil without leaving a white cast in the hair and it also smells delicious thanks to the grapefruit and lime oil formula. This product takes a bit longer to get used to as you need to apply it with your hands as opposed to spraying a can, but once you get the hang of it you’re fine. The last thing I need to say is that I’ve had the same bottle for over a year and it’s still going, and that’s with constant use. Well done Lush!
