My Hair Care Routine & Hair History Pt. 1

As a girl who has gone from having soft, silky hair to having bleached, dry and damaged hair I feel I have tried and tested enough products to recommend some that really work and can restore your hair.

After going very blonde in the beginning of Summer 2014 and having 2 sets of bleach highlights far too close together my hair was in the worst condition it has ever been in. Before having my hair dyed it went through so much heat damage but with stood everything and was always so healthy but when all of that changed I was not happy! I then went on to try many products and here are the ones that have saved my hair and restored it back to a great condition!

First up is Head and Shoulder's Dry Scalp in the almond oil scent (which is an amazing smell by the way!) I use this as sometimes my scalp can feel very dry and tight and this seriously helps. Then we have Aussie's Mega Shampoo, I use this every so often as a clarifying shampoo, but wouldn't use this every time I wash my hair as it can be quite drying.

This brand and these products I cannot talk about highly enough, they genuinely saved my hair! I use the Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo and Brazilian Keratin Smooth Conditioner. These have honestly saved my hair and bought it back to being healthy. I discovered the brand at the end of the Summer and even though the products aren't cheap they last so so long as you don't have to use a lot.

Next up is a L'Oreal product, this is my favourite hair mask, I've used a lot but this one has benefited my hair the most. It also really does make my hair feel and look thicker, I also discovered this at the end of the Summer. I use this after my shampoo and before my conditioner. BUY HERE.

I have been using Aussie's Light Weight Miracle Recharge Hair Insurance
 and Herbal Essence Split End Cream for many many years not and I will never stop using them, they are great products. This Organix Coconut Weightless Mist is of course another saviour! It feels amazing in your hair and makes it feel so soft.

These three really are my saviours and I don't think I will ever be without them again! I bought the coconut oil spray end of Summer 2014 and use it every time I wash my hair (every 2-3 days), so it really is amazing how long it's lasting!

I never used to use a heat protector but now I feel I have to to help my hair, and this has to be my favourite. BUY HERE.

And those are the products that restored my soft, healthy hair.
Monday is going to be a timeline of my hair over the years, so look out for some very embarrassing pictures!

Love El

    1. Thanks! These products are so good, they saved my hair :) No I actually haven't! Xx

  7. I've heard a lot good stuff about Aussie products, would love to try it out! :D
    Nice post. Thanks for sharing!


    1. They are great products :) Thanks!

  8. The keratin smooth range is just amazing! I'm currently on the road back to healthy hair after years of dying and backcombing - super gross.

  9. Using heat protector products on your hair is a must when you style it with heating products almost everyday. After all, prevention is better than cure, and way easier as well. It'd be more expensive to restore your hair, once it has been totally damaged. Anyway, thanks for sharing that, El! Stay gorgeous! :)
