So before I talk you through my hair care I thought I would give you a bit of information on what my hair is like: I have thick, really long brown hair and it is in quite good condition (due to one product in particular which I will talk to you about). I do use a lot of heat on my hair so do get spilt ends but this doesn't tend to bother me too much as I try and get my hair cut frequently. So let's get down to it!

So first things first... shampoo & conditioner... I try and alternate between different types of shampoos and conditioners so I have two main sets that I am using at the moment. The first one is the Goldwell set and I use the rich repair type which I really enjoy using. I bought these when my hair was in need of something more nourishing than I had been using and I do think this has improved my hair use after use. The shampoo lathers up really well which I like so you don't need a lot of product and the conditioner is super smooth so my hair instantly feels repaired as soon as I apply it.

Bought mine off of Ebay as a set for £12

The next set I use is the kms silk sheen shampoo and conditioner, I purchased these from my hairdressers in the largest bottles they do as they had a crazy good offer on, so it really would have been rude not to! I wouldn't say these are the most conditioning products so if your hair is in need of a bit of TLC I would steer clear. However, these really do make your hair SHINE soooo much, I had people commenting on how healthy my hair was looking, even though it didn't feel as soft as usual. So I am still torn with this product.. I love how my hair looks when I use it, but don't particularly like how it feels. Oh & both of these sets have the most amazing scents, they really are so nice and the staying power is so good, a day later I will still be able to smell them in my hair, which I LOVE.

Bought mine as a set for £25

Although these are my current choice of shampoos and conditioners I wouldn't say I would be running out going to buy them again, I'm happy with trying new products on my hair and don't think these work 'miracles'. But then again, I won't be wasting these either, I will be using these right to the bottom of the bottles as they weren't cheap!

One thing in particular I enjoy using on my hair is a deep Conditioner and my current choice to use would be the Vichy nourishing one. I apply this after shampooing and spread it all over my hair, it's a thick cream and it really does make my hair feel shiny & healthy. I was quite hesitant about trying a Vichy product for hair as I have only heard about their face products but actually I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoy using this once a week or so.

Bought from for £6.60

So here comes the most amazing product which I think I will continue to use FOREVER  and I really do adore this product, It is the ...It's a 10 Miracle leave in product. I will try and keep this short and sweet because I really could go on and on about this treatment. Basically, it is a cream spray which you spray onto your hair after washing and it claims to do 10 things instantly to your hair.
Bought from Ebay for £15.99

1. Repairs dry damaged hair
2. Adds shine 
3. Smoothes and controls frizz
4. Seas and protects hair color
5. Detangles
6. Prevents split ends
7. Stops hair breakage 
8. Creates silkiness
9. Enhances natural body
10. Flat iron spray and thermal protector

Honestly all I can say is if you haven't already tired this, try it! It is life changing. 

Bought from Boots for £4.99

So this brings me to my final product... It has to be dry shampoo and I use the batiste cherry version which I love the smell of! It's an every girls must have as far as I'm concerned for days when you simply can't be bothered to wash your hair and want it clean instantly or days when you just don't have enough time! I love this dry shampoo because of the cheap price tag and the fact that it is lightweight and doesn't weigh down my hair.

I'm so open to trying new products so please recommend me some products that work for you. Thanks for reading!

    1. Honestly it's so worth a try, I'm addicted! They also sell smaller bottle sizes on ebay so might be worth getting one of those to test it out, they last for ages as well anyway :) I'm pleased someone else shares my love for dry shampoo as well! xx
