MY TOP FIVE HAIR CARE ESSENTIALS



 Hi huns, it's been a while. But I am back, and this time for good.

I have all of a sudden had a crazy overflow of ideas because I have been finding and using items and products that I just cannot wait to rave about.

It's that horrid time of the year where your hair can quite frankly become a bit of a mare in the heat and the sunshine, and well, who wants a frizzy mop? No thank you!

I have been for the past what feels like forever now but realistically its been about two / three years been trying to grow out my fringe and be a lot nicer to my locks. I have always been the kinda girl you would not see without her hair pin straight and I would not leave the house until it was perfect. *sighs* I wasted so much damn time and effort lol. 

Buttt, I have actually succeeded and these days you will see me with all my hair scraped back in a ponytail (no more fringe hurrah!) or half and half in a pony or bun on the top of my head. It is so much better to maintain now, in fact I love the simple care free hair life! I used to have to wash my hair daily (BIG no no!) because I was so worried that it looked greasy or wasn't perfect. Basically I was just a pain in the ass when it came to my hair.

Although I managed to change my bad habits myself, I do have Palmers to thank as their Coconut hair care range has literally changed my life! All of their products do not contain any parabens, sulphates, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten or dyes. And trust me, it makes a HUGE difference. It's also nice to know I am not using any nasty chemicals that may cause harm. (I managed to run out of them just as I was preparing my post, typical. But I will have a separate review on these products very shortly.)

Anyway, here are my top five hair care essentials that I also love and keep on purchasing..

#1 Amargan Oil

My Mum has kept on buying and using this for years from our local hairdressers but I was always put off using products that contain oil due to the fact I have such fine hair and it can weigh it down. Though I was proved wrong because I absolutely love it now and it's like a saviour when I need a bit of extra hydration / moisture. It doesn't weight my hair down in the slightest, in fact its more of a powdery oil than a sticky oil. I apply a pump to my damp hair after washing it and then dry it off with my hairdryer. It leaves me with baby soft hair that's so much straighter and easier to maintain/style. Winner!

#2 Colab Dry Shampoo

I'll be honest, when I bought this I bought it purely on the fact the bottle is so pretty! Who could resist this design sitting on their dressing table?! Plus that I got it on offer when it was launched for around £1 on Superdrug because I had spent a certain amount. I had wanted to try another dry shampoo but I was skeptical because personally I have never really got on with them, especially Batiste as it left my hair practically looking like I had died it a patchy white! (Not a good look huns lol) But this did make me change my mind. It smells AMAZING! In fact I could smell it before I had even sprayed it. Imagine being on a Caribbean beach and getting that fruity tropical coconut smell? This is it in a bottle.. delicious! It also doesn't leave you with any horrid white patchy streaks (Batiste you have some serious catching up to do!) and I actually felt like it had cleansed my hair. For that reason I will always return to good gorgeous Colab. 

#3 VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray

Now that I am wearing my hair up practically alll the time, I needed something to hold back those annoying wispy baby hairs that just seem to appear and get right in your face. *grits teeth* I firstly tried a brand named Fudge and okay it was alright, and it smelt amazing, but I was left with a horrible sticky residue on my hair which made everyone around me worry for my sanity asking when I had last washed my hair (when I had just done it!) so I switched it up and found VO5 in my local Tesco's. (Which by the way is on offer at the moment for £3 - thank me later!) As you can see I always get drawn in by the pretty bottles, oops. But I was impressed the first time I used it. It's described as being a fine spray that is weatherproof, has ultimate hold and has a lovely fragrance. Which is what it is and all you really need from a hairspray. So if you're looking for a good one that isn't too expensive I highly recommend it.

#4 HeadJog Wide Tooth Comb

Nothing special, but it is an essential for me to get my hair perfected just the way I want it. I usually purchase it from my local hair trade centre because I have an account with them due to being a qualified beauty therapist. Although recently I have been finding them on E-Bay even cheaper and they arrive within a day or two. I do go through them quite often as I am terrible at taking them out with me in my handbag and then losing them. They just seem to be better than any other I have tried, because although a comb is a comb, it grips my hair back a lot easier and also quicker. 

#5 Diva Professional Twilight Hairdryer & Straightener Set

Saving the best till last! Who thought it would be possible to fall in love with a hairdryer and straighteners? But hey, I have! My boyfriend used to work in hair and beauty wholesale and I remember him showing me a photo of the new range and I just knew I had to have these! They are so different to any other electrical hair range I have seen as I was fed up of the basic colour ranges available and wanted something a bit different. Although I could not see me owning them for a while due to the price tag *gasps* They work out at £109.99 for the Straighteners and £69.99 for the Hairdryer. A little over my price range at that point. Butttt, I woke up on my Birthday morning with my boyfriend passing me presents, not expecting a single thing as we had told each other no presents this year as we want to save, and what a darling he had bought me the full freaking set! They are both infused with Macadamia, Argan Oil and Keratin as well as a high power Ionic jet for super shine. The straighteners also come in a handy sparkly black pouch to store them in and doubles up as a heat mat. Since using them I can definitely notice a change in how soft and shiny my hair is. My favourite hair care essential ever.


So there we have it, all my must have essentials! I hope this post has helped some of you find some new products to try out, and if you do please do comment below and let me know your thoughts on them! Also if there are any more products like these you think I would love, please let me know as I love finding new ones.


Love, H.
