I thought I would share with you guys what I use on my hair and what I do to my hair on a day-to-day basis. A little bit about my hair is that there is a natural wave to it. When I was younger around 3 years I had very curly blonde hair. However, over the years the curls have been a lot less curly and the blonde started to get darker and darker. Around the age of 12 years my hair was a dark blonde and I didn’t really like it, so I coloured my hair brown. Every since then I have kept colouring it myself. Until I started working in a hair salon then I got my colour done professionally. Now I have had about 6 inches cut off and balayaged.
First of all I wash my hair every other day as that is when it needs washing (e.g. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday). Aveda Shampure shampoo is such a great basic shampoo, it cleanses my scalp perfectly. It is slightly more expensive but I get the bigger bottle because you get more for your money. Cheaper shampoo’s I like is TRESemme Cleansing Shampoo, TRESemme Perfectly Un-Done Shampoo (which I am using at the moment) and Aussie Mega Shampoo. I do prefer clear shampoo’s as they are a lot lighter on my scalp. Onto conditioners and treatments. I love using hair mask’s on my hair, my favourite one is Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment. This has worked on my hair wonderfully, it’s put my hair back into original condition. I will use this every other time I wash (e.g. Monday and Friday). It is quite expensive but it is worth every penny. Cheaper option would be Dove Intensive Repair Treatment, this product is the only other one that has helped with my condition. Dove also do an Intensive Repair Conditioner, I still use and love the conditioner but the treatment is better.
After I wash my hair I don’t normally dry my hair, instead I will let it dry natural. Of course if I’m going out I will dry and style my hair. I normally wash my hair in the evening’s so I will put my hair into a very loose ponytail and go to bed like so. I don’t always style my hair everyday, I do straighten it about twice a week though. The straighteners I use are GHD IV Straighteners, I absolutely love these and highly recommend them. For styling products I will always apply my Aveda Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme, it smooths out any of my frizz and has a heat protector in it which is a bonus. Someday’s if I want some extra volume I will use my Aveda Pure Abundance Style-Prep to give me some more volume. I do normally use Aveda products as I know them really well and I work in a Aveda hair salon. However, I do really like TRESemme as well. I use their Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo and their Salon Touchable Feel Hairspray. In the morning after I straighten my hair if there are any flyaway I will use some Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Oil to calm them down.
If you are curious on how I style my hair I have already done a hairstyle blog. On a day-to-day basis I will normally put my hair half up half down for work as its so quick and easy to do.
