One topic I’m yet to touch one (which I promised I would) is about hair. I was initially hesitant as I’m well aware of the vast range of hair bloggers/vloggers there are out there. Especially those who discuss and review various weaves and how to treat them etc.
For the past year I have used weave less and opted to wear my own chemically treated (or relaxed) hair. However, it seems to be an increasingly popular phenomenon to revert to natural hair and I must say that the majority rock it exceptionally well.
Because I prefer the more sleek look I like having my hair relaxed. Now keeping relaxed hair healthy and promoting growth does of course require maintenance, such as regular deep conditioning and ensuring that you are using the right products on it.
My bathroom shelf did used to be testament to the amount of products that I’ve tested but I’m glad I’ve found a family of great hair products that I can rely on. I’m going to share some of them with you now. The products I’m listing below can all be bought from any good supermarket or beauty store such as Boots or Superdrug.
When shampooing my hair I use Tresemme Moisturising Shampoo- it’s so good at removing dirt and even after towel drying you can feel that your hair is noticeably silky. I use their damage repair conditioner too, I only leave it in for 5 minutes for a short wash as it really does get to work immediately.
Post-washing care is so important as more often that not heat is required to dry the hair and it can really dry out in the process. Keracare’s leave-in conditioner is great and you only need a small amount to fully moisturise the hair. I also use a pea-sized amount of John Frieda’s frizz ease hair serum to give me the smooth finish I need.
That pretty much sums up what I use on a weekly basis. These products are suitable for any hair texture but if you have particularly fine or light hair I would suggest using very little Keracare leave-in conditioner, as it could weigh down the hair.
Although I’ve recommended the products that work for me, it’s important to figure out what’s right for your hair type. The leading brands aren’t always necessarily the most best, so be mindful of this when shopping around.
In light of this post being much longer than I initially intended, I’ll leave it there for today lol and will discuss my day to day hair products another time 🙂
Have a fun and productive weekend!
