Hair care routine.

Sunday, 15 February 2015
I often receive a lot of comments about how nice my hair is. As silly as this sounds I've worked hard over the past year and a half getting it to this length. The longer your hair gets the harder it becomes to keep it staying strong and healthy and if anyone is struggling then here is my answer.

I do not wash my hair every day. I will wash my hair every other day or every 2 days as I find that washing it every day can make it look greasy. I use the Aussie luscious long shampoo and conditioner then at the end of every week I will put the 3 minute miracle treatment in but leave it in for around 5 minutes instead. I've tried many shampoos to keep my hair moisturised and looking/feeling healthy however this is the only one that has been consistent in working.
Once a month, I will apply the H'suan Wen Hua hair treatment from Lush. I will apply whilst my hair is dry, and leave it in for 20-30 minutes. I often do this when I am having a pamper night as it ties in well with applying a face mask as well.

All you Rapunzels out there will know how hard it is brushing long hair, and when it's curly as well it's just a health hazard. I've broken at least 3 brushes in the past year and many brushes have just ripped my hair out. Santa brought me a Tangle Teezer for christmas this year and I am never turning back to a normal hair brush.

1. Garnier Ultimate blends: I used these for a long time before I discovered Aussie, you can read one of my previous reviews here.                                                                                                                                                              

2. Alpecin Caffeine shampoo: I did get told that this was for men who were experiencing balding. However if you are trying to grow your hair it works wonders. It thickened and grew my hair quicker than normal, the only problems are that if you dye your hair your roots will come through quicker and it can also dry your hair out if over used.

3. Frizz Ease Rehydrate deep conditioner: Frizz Ease usually does wonders for those days my hair looks like a poodle/tumbleweed. However I was slightly disappointed with the deep conditioner as it didn't really condition my hair at all. My hair was still left all tatty, which wasn't the result I was looking for.

4. Lee Stafford Hair growth shampoo: These products are slightly pricey and you have to use them for a while before you see any effect but they are extremely good for your hair. My hair didn't grow as quickly as when using the Alpecin but it didn't dry out and my hair felt a lot nicer.

5. Bed Head Colour Goddess: Although I don't colour my hair this is really effective for keeping your hair well nourished and moisturised. It also smells like a combination of fudge and toffee and chocolate and just amazingness.

Other things that have also helped maintaining my hair is keeping on top of trimming it. You can go
to a hairdressers and get it trimmed but I find that my hair grows that quick it is just easier to do it myself once a month or so.
It's common sense that heat is a big killer of hair. I'm guilty of hair drying my hair on the highest heat just because it would take me around half an hour if not. This compensates for the fact that I don't own any hair straighteners though. I straighten my hair maybe once or twice a month and use my curlers maybe even less than that. If you are going to use heat make sure you have a good heat protection spray. 

And this is how my hair has been looked after!

My next post will also be hair related but may be a shock after this post...
