Hi lovelies! Today I am going to be sharing with you my current haircare routine. I get my hair bleached and use heat on it most days so it's very important for me that I look after my hair and keep it as healthy as it possibly can be. So here are the products I am currently using...
I usually wash my hair every 2-3 days, as it's not great to wash your hair everyday - obviously if your hair gets very greasy and you need to wash it everyday that's fine, I would just say to pro-long the time between washing as much as you can. For shampoo I have been using Phytovolume shampoo, shampoo and conditioner is something I switch up quite often so these are just what I'm using at the moment. I have tried a few Phyto shampoo's and I really like them, this one gives my hair a nice bit of volume without drying it out. It is also sulphate free, I like sulphate free shampoos as I find they are much gentler on my hair, I used to always get a dry scalp but since using sulphate free shampoos my scalp has been fine. Because it doesn't contain sulphates though it is quite runny so you need to go careful when pouring it out as it can go everywhere and it doesn't foam like a sulphate shampoo would, but does still have a decent amount of lather to it.
For conditioner I am currently using KMS Moisture Repair - I bought this as I said I like to switch up conditioners so my hair doesn't get used to it, but I don't think I will be repurchasing this again as I'm not that keen on it, I feel like it doesn't moisturise my hair enough. I sometimes use a treatment as my conditioner, one I love is the Joico K Pak Intense Hydrator, I really recommend this if you have damaged hair especially if you bleach your hair as is a protein treatment. I'm not using it at the moment as I was using it for a while and you don't want to use to much protein on your hair as it can make your hair become brittle. But if used in moderation it is great for your hair!
Now onto leave-in treatments/detangling sprays, after I have washed my hair I always tend to apply some sort of leave in product, I have a few which I alternate between. Firstly the Unite 7 Seconds Conditioner Leave In Detangler - this smells amazing! I won't go into it to much as I have reviewed it before (here) but it really helps detangle my hair and also has a UV and thermal protector. Another product quite similar is the it's a 10 miracle leave-in product - this is thicker in constancy though, I like to use this to help detangle my hair and add some extra moisture and it also contains a thermal protector, I will alternate between this and the Unite one. Another leave-in product is Redken Extreme anti-snap leave in treatment - which contains protein and helps protect against split ends and also provides heat protection. I don't use this all the time as it contains protein and as I said protein is good for hair but if used to much it can cause hair to become brittle, so I just tend to use this for a while then have a little break when I feel like my hair needs it usually after a few weeks. I apply one pump through my ends of my hair and a little bit through the lengths. Lastly it's Phyto Secret De Nuit - which is a hydrating regenerating night treatment, I use this if my hair is feeling dry and I want to give it some extra moisture, it is quite expensive and I don't think it's worth the price but it is a nice product.
For pre-shampoo treatments, I love coconut oil, this one I got from Holland and Barrett but you can find coconut oil in supermarkets. I went for this one as i knew it was cold-pressed and organic, cold-pressed is better as it contains more of the nutrients. I have already wrote about coconut oil for your hair so I will link that if you want to know more (Link) But i definitely recommend it, as it is very moisturising.
Lastly I use Schwarzkopf guardian angel heat protectant spray before I use heat on my hair, and I also thought I'd mention the Tangle Teezer as I always use it!
So that is my current haircare routine, I'd love to know what your favourite haircare products are?
