Hair care is not something I speak much about, I think it is because I am hopeless at hair styling and I generally wash it and hope for the best. If I really want to put some effort in, I will use a curling tong through the mid sections and go. However, I do take a lot of pride in the health of my hair and thought it is about time highlight some of my current favourites.
Firstly, I cannot live without Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo. Nothing, and I mean nothing removes brassiness at home quite like this shampoo. I am the kind of person who would prefer my hair to be tinted purple than to be on the gold side. So this little baby is a Ride or Die product for me. The formula is thick and is a beautiful dark indigo colour. It doesn’t dry out my hair at all and leaves it smelling super fresh. I hate it when shampoos are too heavy and leave my hair feeling knotty and rough after washing out, but Clean Blonde doesn’t do that at al. The only down side is that it can slightly stain the dry skin on my fingers, But as long as my hair is ashy, I don’t care in the slightest.
El8te sent me some products from their Nourish & Shine hair range, and I immediately fell in love. The scent is intoxicating and fresh. This range is 100% chemical free which is a huge bonus, so there is no hidden nasties nor is it damaging the environment. The shampoo and conditioner are full of Australian rosemary and citrus oils which encouage shine, while increasing circulation in the scalp to promote hair growth and health. This range is super refreshing and even leaves a cool tingling sensation on the scalp and neck, which I think will be amazing in the warmer weather. Although the conditioner isn’t as hydrating as I would normally like, a few squirts of a hair oil sorts that right out. Absolutely love using this El8te hair range.
Speaking of hair oils, Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil has been an absolute god-send. This little bottle of golden goodness sorts my locks out in no time. It leaves my hair hydrated, soft, smooth and tangle free. I have found that this budget-friendly buy out performs other more expensive hair oils that I have previously used. I pop it into towel dried hair and brush it though, and my hair dries so silky soft and frizz-free. I can also add it to dry hair if it’s looking a little lack-lustre. As a beauty blogger, I trial a whole heap of hair products and I am super fussy about my conditioner and leave in products, sometimes a conditioner dries my hair out so bad, but this little guy really helps to bring back the hydration. I have purchased this probably 3 times and the bottle lasts forever. I also have never had an issues with oily or limp strands after too much use – my hair just seems to drink it up. A+++
Olaplex is another long-running hair staple. I am lucky that my hairdresser has this treatment available to ensure the integrity of my hair isn’t jeopardized when coloured. This in-salon treatment is used to prevent damaged caused by colouring. You can find a more detailed review in Olaplex here.
Speaking of my Hairdresser, I can thank Hair & Harlow for the stunning colour, cut and health of my hair. I have so much trust in Justine and the team, and despite their huge popularity and success, they have remained passionate and above all, friendly. Visiting the salon is an absolute pleasure. They aren’t intimidating nor condescending, just beautiful down-to-earth driven women. Plus they certainly know their way around scissors and foils, known widely for their balayage techniques This amazing team pride themselves on a high quality of customer service, innovation, empowerment and education. Amy and Justine are total #Girlbosses.
“Okay, Okay, Camille, We get it. You hate dry hair” But just incase I haven’t driven that point home enough, I just HAVE to mention Catwalk by Tigi Oatmeal and Honey Mask again. This mask is the most amazing treatment mask I have ever used. It smells delicious and leaves my hair suuuuuuuuuper soft, hydrated and healthy. I use this mask at least twice weekly to keep my hair up to scratch. If you need hyrdation and health, get this bad boy in your shower and smother it all over you hair PRONTO! I believe they have a shampoo and conditioner in this range as well, so they are definitely on my wishlist.
I have recently mentioned this product, but just have to speak about it again. Oribe Texturising Spray is incredible. This dry-shampoo cross volumising spray, gives my fine straight hair texture and body. I spray in the roots and mid sections and style as usual for a salon style created at home. I love the volume it adds to curled or even straight hair. This little guy is a winner.
Last but certainly not least, Lady Jayne have the most amazing range of hair tools. I mean, who doesn’t love a good quality bobby-pin?! Their brushes de-tangle my hair without breakage and add so much shine. I don’t think I have ever actually used a round brush during blow-drying before, but this baby was so so so easy to use. I was actually able to successfully style my hair at home; perfect for a rookie like me. Plus their hair bands don’t pull, snag or leave me with a ‘ponytail headache’. Lady Jayne is widely available and for such reasonable prices, they are my go-to styling tools.
