Sunday Post: Hair Heroes

I admit it - I'm pretty rubbish at taking good care of my hair.  Lately I've got a bit better, but I probably still don't look after it the way I should.  These are the products that are regularly taken out of the hair drawer.

Every day without fail I spritz my hair with heat-protect spray while it's still wet and before I blow-dry it.  My favourite is one from Charles Worthington; it smells incredible and seems to keep my hair in good condition without leaving it feeling weighed down or full of product.  I usually also run a dollop of Charles Worthington Volume and Boost creme through my roots to add a bit of shape to my hair.  As much as I love this, you do have to be really careful that you rub it in well because every now and again when I'm a bit lazy and apply it while doing other things, I'm left with some product-heavy roots.

Every few days I run a bit of the Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Perfecter Oil through the ends of my hair while it's still wet to inject a bit of moisture - it doesn't leave my hair feeling oily or greasy but does make a difference to how hydrated and shiny it is!

Although it isn't photographed, if I'm curling my hair I use a dollop of the Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce mousse.  It keeps the curls in my naturally straight hair for longer, and adds a bit of bounce to my barnet!

After styling, almost every day I spritz the Charles Worthington Texturising Spray into both my roots and the lengths of my hair.  It smells incredible, adds a bit of oomph and holds a style beautifully.  If I want a bit of extra hold, the Tresemme Salon Finish Freeze Hold hair spray is my go-to.  It keeps every hair in place, and brushes out really easily when I want it to.

Lastly - dry shampoo.  Oily skin = oily hair.  I wash my hair every other day, and on the second day it's flat and lifeless.  I've tried a few brands of dry shampoo but I always return to Batiste.  Yes, the white cast is annoying and my hair does feel a bit product-y, but it works.  The oil is absorbed and a bit of life is added to my hair.

What are your hair heroes?
