OMG I feel like I haven’t written anything in ages. I know a post went live earlier this week but I was suffering extreme jet lag and if I’m honest, it was not well written at all. Alas, I am back with a bang, I snapped some photos when the light was permitting and I’m ready to get back on the blogging train (which would be amazing if it was real, am I right?). I thought I would start by sharing the hair care products I am currently using and my thoughts on them.
As you can see, I don’t use a great deal of product on my hair apart from the odd scoosh of Batiste to sort my hair out when it’s one of those days. I have never been much of a product user and I definitely hate overloading my hair stuff but I have a few products to try out in the next few months and I can’t wait to share them with you.
First up I use a really cheap and cheerful shampoo from none other than Aldi. I get greasy hair and absolutely fight with shampoos to find one that works for me. This one is probably Aldi’s attempt at Head & Shoulders and smells virtually the same as their similar product as well. The consistency of the shampoo however is very different and is a lot runnier meaning you don’t need much to lather up your hair. I always find the Head & Shoulders one a bit too thick so this one suits my hair a lot more. I can’t remember the price because I’ve had it about 3-4 months now but it was under £1.00 possibly so an absolute bargain. Overall it leaves my hair feeling fresh and clean and I would buy it again.
Next up is Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo, which I actually got from my auntie whilst in New Zealand. I have ombre hair so I don’t require a lot of blond toning however it can get a bit yellowy at the bottom and I was starting to get concerned whilst on holiday. You don’t need a lot of this shampoo to get a good lather however rinse it from your hands quickly as the purple tones can leave your hands a bit stained. I used this every other day for a couple of weeks and definitely found it brightened the blonde in my hair and stopped it looking yellowy. The bottle says you don’t need to do it this often however I think it’s personal preference. I will keep using it however I won’t need to for a couple of months as I don’t want to dry out my hair.
Lastly I have been using Charles Worthington Straight & Smooth Conditioner to leave my hair silky smooth. This is a fab conditioner and definitely softens my hair especially the beaten up blonde bits at the bottom. I never condition the top of my hair only from the ear downwards as I find the top only gets greasy looking once conditioner is added. I really like this one in particular as it has a lovely smell however once it’s finished I will be testing out something new and sharing my thoughts on that one.
I hope you enjoyed my little hair care post, keep your eyes peeled for lots more beauty posts and a travel one or two coming your way in the next few weeks.
Thanks for reading
