Hair Care routine

I've noticed that there's a few haircare routine video's/posts going around at the moment and I wanted to join in and share what I use on my hair!

Now first, what kind of hair do I have - well it's naturally straight/wavy ish - it's more straight than wavy but it has a slight kink to it, something I used to hate about my hair up until recently. It is bleached - I used to leave it absolutely ages before I bothered to go to the hairdressers, but I have a lovely friend who is now a trained hairdresser who does it for me now so I get it done more regularly (it means it's much cheaper and I get to have a natter)! Considering it's bleached, my hair is actually in pretty good condition - I see so many girls with dry bleached hair, but mine has never really suffered from the dyeing!

I am quite lucky with my hair, it takes a long time for it to become greasy which means that I don't have to wash it everyday-I actually only wash my hair about 2-3 times a week (most weeks it's 2, depending on what's going on).

So on to the products I use:

Shampoo & Conditioner

I love this range - when Vo5 re-packaged all their products they were on offer pretty much everywhere and I stocked up - A LOT! I am still shopping my stash (stash was bought in May) but I haven't felt the need to purchase anything different. I love the smell of these products, my bathroom smells gorgeous after I have used them! I have used a few of the different ranges (revive me daily, beyond blonde, gloss me smoothly) and they all leave my hair feeling very soft and smooth.

Vo5 Miracle Concentrate

This really is a miracle product - I couldn't live without it! I know everyone raves about moroccan oil and other such like products, and I can't compare as I've never tried any of these products as I bought this first (being the cheap ass that I am) and fell in love! A few little drops of this smoothed in to  my hair when wet, and it leaves my hair feeling oh so soft (so soft in fact that I feel the need to stroke it all the time)! I'm sure at some point I'll jump on the moroccan oil bandwagon, but for now, this is just perfect my locks!


Since August, I have straightened my hair 3 times - being out in Oz on holiday, I decided that it would be the perfect time to give my hair a bit of a break and let it go 'au naturel' - I figured as I was on holiday and could blend it with all the surfer styles, no-one would mind my messy hair, and I just grew to like it! If I'm honest, I grew to like the amount of time it took me to do my hair - all of about 5 minutes! I now literally towel dry, pop in a few drops of the miracle concentrate, a quick blast with the hair dryer and I'm pretty much done! I don't fully dry my hair with the hair dryer, just the top of the head really, otherwise my hair just looks really flat, does this happen to anyone else?

As my hair is bleached, it is very knotty/ tangly - it's a nightmare to brush so I couldn't be without the tangle teezer in my life!

Towards the end of the day, to give my hair a bit of oomph - there are a few products that I turn to that I've used for years and always go back to Tigi Queen for a Day Thickening spray & Label M Sea Salt Spray:

Head upside down and a spray of either of these and hair is very volumised! I love the smell of both of these!

Now all I need is a product that will help me get long luscious locks - I wish my hair would grow quickly, but alas, I am stuck with slow growth! Any tips or products that have worked wonders on your locks would be very welcome!


  1. I love the V05 range, especially the conditioner as its really thick and lasts a long time :) x

  2. Vo5 revive me daily shampoo gives me the right level of nourishment for my hair. I love the smell of this shampoo it is gorgeous. Nice Hair care products for my hairs.
