Today I thought I would share with you my everyday hair care routine. Since I had a massive chop to my hair and I cut off all the old and dead hair I have established a hair care routine every night and morning so my hair does not get as damaged as it was. I have also learnt many new things in the process about taking care of your very precious hair.
The Products I use on my hair are:
Kevin Murphy leave in luxury – Leave In Conditioner
TRESemmé Platinum Strength – Heat Protectant
Loreal Paris Total Repair Pro keratin+ Ceramide – Leave in conditioner
Thick Bristles Brush
Schwarzkopf Extra Care Super Styling Lacquer- Hair Spray
First of all after I have had my shower and washed my hair I start off with my Kevin Murphy leave in conditioner
This conditioner has special silk proteins which help soften and moisturise dehydrated and frizzy hair. It also has peruvian bark extract and mango butter which help protect your ends. This is great for coloured hair but seeing as I don’t have coloured hair I just use it for the moisturising and protecting abilities. Not to mention this smells like heaven! There is no other scent like this and I have no idea how to explain it but please just a minute of silence for this heavenliness
I use this conditioner straight after my shower because you have to apply it to damp hair. I usually use this at night because I have more time to spend applying it. I use this on my tips and in small areas in the middle of my hair to tame pesky flyways.I suggest you do not use this on your roots or it will make them oily and unless you have an infinite supply of dry shampoo this is not a great look.
After that I will apply TRESemmé heat protectant and dry my hair
I like to use platinum strength because my hair gets damaged VERRYYY easily and this just helps to ensure I am not causing any breakage while I blow-dry my hair. When I can I like to skip this part because it is good to give your hair a break from heat as this damages hair.
The next thing I do after I have made sure my hair is completely dry is, I brush through it with my thick bristles brush to get rid of any clumps in the length of my hair and I will then go over it and use my everyday brush. I use this brush and I massage the roots to stimulate the blood cells which encourages new hair follicles to grow- In other words it just helps your hair to grow faster.
The second last thing I do is apply L’Oréal Paris Elvive Conditioning spray.
This repairs and strengthens hair and conditions as well as detangles. It has Keratin in it which is told to do wonders for your hair. I like this product because it is in a handy dandy spray bottle so you don’t have to get your hands all full of product like the Kevin Murphy conditioner. The only reason I continue to use the Kevin Murphy is because of the scent! This Loreal Paris Conditioner is great because you don’t have to apply it to wet hair so it is much more convenient! As you can probably tell I am a BIG fan of leave in conditioners- What can I say? Im obsessed
For the last product I use in my everyday hair routine is Schwarzkopf super styling hairspray. I actually only use this on occasions when I can tell my fly aways are going to bug me.
The Super Styling Lacquer is great for me because no one likes crunchy hair from using too much hairspray and this is great because it holds shape easily and you don’t have to use a lot of spray. I much prefer this because my hair holds no shape whatsoever and this just gives it that little push to keep it in place for the day.
Finally on certain occasions I will admit that I have resorted to the very trusty dry shampoo. Even though this is not part of my everyday haircare routine I thought it was important to share with you. I use the not your mother’s dry shampoo which I will admit I stole custody of it from my mother (It’s a little ironic isn’t it) This does do wonders when your head all of a sudden decides to go fully blown like an oil slick. Dry shampoo like this helps to soak up all of the grossness in your scalp leaving you feeling fresh for the day ahead of you! I swear if this came in pocket size I would buy the whole rack because this is a great touch up for throughout the day.
Hope you guys enjoyed and maybe learnt a little through this post,
