Today I thought I'd give you a quick rundown of the products I'm using to take care of my locks (and also bug you guys for some recommendations) - this isn't really a topic I cover much on the blog, mainly because I'm no expert and I'm usually concerned nothing I say is going to be of any value. But then I figure - you guys might feel the same way! So maybe we can just muddle through together and share what works/what we don't like so much. Sound good? Worst intro to a post EVER.

SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER: With the start of the new year and with a new hairstyle to consider, I picked up the Bumble & bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil set from Space NK with an Ncentive I had that was expiring. Mostly because I'd heard good things and having used and enjoyed the Invisible Oil in the past, I figured why not? I've got a more in-depth review of this stuff coming up very soon but, thoughts aside, given the price of the full size of these babies? I'm definitely still on the hunt for my 'holy grail' shampooing and conditioning duo.

STYLING: Because I'm quite fond of a little curl'n'straighten and I don't want my hair to look like straw, I use the Tresemme Heat Defence spray - picked this up on a whim in Boots and I love it. Great price, it's light and doesn't have an oily texture at all, just leaves my hair feeling and smelling nice with its magical powers. I've been putting the Invisible Oil primer on trial at the same time as the shampoo and conditioner and I have to say - save your pennies. This came out quite gloopy and thick and whilst I can imagine it might work nicely on longer hair than mine, this left me with a greasy clump after first use. Not a winner.

My one true love salt spray is and probably always will be the Bumble and bumble Surf Spray - I use this on damp hair before drying or on second day hair for a bit of texture and grit (it also smells beaut). This has worked for me on both long and short hair, I guess it suits the thickness of my hair and never leaves me feeling like I'm overloaded or have a head full of product.

Not pictured because I am quite obviously an idiot, my ALL TIME FAVE is the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray. Volume, grit, texture, smells awesome, feels light, takes the brain work out of that effortless 'I woke up like dis' Alexa Chung look. I recommend this to everyone and when they don't believe me, I make them use it and watch their face change. It's a beautiful thing.

MAINTENANCE: Spoiler for Sunday's favourites rundown - this CoLab dry shampoo has changed my life. I picked up the scent Rio which is delicious and this is bar-none the best dry shampoo I've ever used. Remember that dry shampoo is not a styling product - this does what it says on the tin. It gives you fresh locks even on day two or three, removes grease and doesn't leave any kind of gritty, gross texture behind. In fact, it makes my hair soft. Mind = blown.

I've used the Caudelie Divine Oil on my body, my eyebrows, my hair - it's a wonder product. It smells sweet and sensual, feels rich and nourishing on the skin and when used very sparingly on the ends of the hair and any flyaways really helps condition my mane. I wouldn't be without it now!

Guys - hit me with your wonder products! Any awesome shampoos/conditioners out there I should be trying?

  2. I am absolutely loving the Colab dry shampoos right now! I just picked up the texturizing version of the Paris scent, and it's heart-eyed-emojis every time I use it =D
