#SBBC Day 8 – Maintaining Healthy Hair

hair

I was meant to post this yesterday but just didn’t the time, I usually try to have Sunday’s off to spend time with my family and at church etc so I’m doing an extra post today.

These are the products I am currently using to keep my hair healthy, especially as I colour my hair! I’ve also included my top tips.

John Freida Radiant Red Shampoo and Conditioner

I wash my hair every other day to avoid drying it out by over washing. I use this John Freida shampoo and conditioner to prolong my deep red hair colour. It does seem to be helping and it also makes my hair feel incredibly soft and moisturised.

TRESemmè Heat Defence Styling Spray

I heat style my hair so this is perhaps one of my most important items in my hair care regime. I spray it onto damp hair to protect from blow-drying and then straightening. It also contains a UVC filter which protects my hair from the sun and helps to keep it hydrated and stops the sun bleaching the colour from my hair. It smells awesome too.

Guy Kremer Protection Serum

You can never protect your hair too much, I mainly use this to smooth y hair and keep it that way all day but it also protects my hair from the heat styling too. It makes my hair much more manageable to straighten and strengthens it against humid and damp weather.

Top tips

  • Use a wide toothed comb instead of a hair brush.
  • If you have greasy hair use dry shampoo or talken powder between washes you can last an extra day and protect your hair.
  • Use the right shampoo for your hair type this will give the best results.
  • Avoid using hair bands too often; they can damage your hair.
  • Eat healthily and make sure you’re getting all of your vitamins.
  • Avoid heat styling if you can but protect your hair well when you have to do it.
  • Only dye your hair every 6 weeks(minimum) and make use of the weekly conditioner they provide!

VO5 – Give Me Texture Shampoo & Conditioner Review

1Reviewed by Tams

The last few weeks I’ve been bored with my hair being dead straight, I don’t know if it’s something to do with the sun being out but I’ve been hankering after textured hair that’s full of life. You’ll have noticed that I’ve tried a few different products recently that all aim to add texture to your hair. It started with this one but I like to give shampoo a good try before I cast my verdict.

The VOZ Give me texture shampoo and conditioner were really reasonably priced and I’ve used others of their before. I always like to start a new look from the base up, any products I use later on in my routine will always have a better result if I start with e relevant product. This is why I choose a shampoo and conditioner that add texture to your hair in place of my normal sleek and shine types.

First up, it smells amazing, as all VO5 products do. It has a really fresh and clean scent which I love. It contains a unique blend of collagen and minerals which gently cleanse product from your hair and create a style full of volume and life. The conditioner is also much lighter than most, it doesn’t weigh your hair down.

I found that because I have frizzy hair naturally that if I want to straighten it after this shampoo it’s hard to do so but if I want a bed-head or beach look it’s absolutely perfect. It really works with styling sprays to create a gorgeous textured style. I also don’t need to wash my hair everyday with this shampoo, every other day is plenty to keep it looking clean and healthy!

My husband is also loving this shampoo right now, it’s giving his hair a bit of oomph which he’s delighted with!

 

Aussie – Miracle Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Review

A bit more expensive that I’d usually allow but well worth it!

As a person that normally goes for the same shampoo nearly every time it was a huge thing for me to pick something new and a bit more expensive that I didn’t even know was any good. Turns out it was worth the risk! I color my hair a lot but don’t find many of the colour special shampoos to be much good so I tend to opt for something that keeps it strong and shiny. Hence, I decided to try Aussie’s new Miracle Shine shampoo and conditioner.

I love the delicious smell of all Aussie products and this one didn’t let me down. It also contains real pearl powder.. yes it’s glamorous too! The resuls are also amazing, my hair is left shiny and strong and I’ve even had comments on how shiny my hair has been recently.

The only drawback is it does tend to make my hair greasier quicker than normal and I have to wash it daily opposed to my normal every other day but I love the product enough not to mind this too much!

This week I’m going to try out the intensive treatment too so I’ll let you know how I get on!

What I loved most: The scent and results.

What I liked least: That I have to wash my hair double the amount each week.

Try it: Shampoo 300ml £3.50, Conditioner 250ml £3.50. Available from Supermarkets and drugstores. Found out more at www.aussiehair.com/uk
