MY HAIR CARE ROUTINE

Tuesday, 19 August 2014
Today I am going to write about my hair care routine. 

So I have never usually cared that much about my hair until recently when I dyed my hair purple. After bleaching it and dying it purple my hair was pretty much ruined so I decided to try and find the best products possible for coloured hair. I am definitely not an expert and as mentioned before, I don't really know all that much about hair care so I pretty much made an educated guess on what would work.

Firstly, I will talk to you about what I use to wash my hair with. 
L'Oreal Paris Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo (Superdrug - £2.99)
L'Oreal Paris Elvive Colour Protect Conditioner (Superdrug - £2.99)
L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickness Booster (Boots - £5.99)
I decided that the best place to start with looking after my hair is finding a decent shampoo and conditioner which will retain my colour well. I decided to go with L'Oreal Paris Elvive because I have heard a lot of good things about them from reading other people reviews (especially when it comes to coloured hair), I haven't heard any bad things about this brand and because I don't really know what the difference is (and being useless with hair) I decided that I couldn't go wrong with this brand. I also spotted this Fibrology Thickness Booster and because my hair had become even thinner and straggly (more so than it is naturally anyway) I decided that this could do the trick to sort it out. To use the Fibrology Thickness Booster you apply after you have shampooed your hair and then massage it in together with your conditioner and then rinse them both out together. 
I have used the Fibrology Thickness Booster for a few weeks now and I can definitely see the difference already.     

VO5 Heat Protect Styling Spray (Superdrug - £2.95)
I also read that to maintain a vibrant hair colour is to ensure that you protect your hair from the heat (or avoid heat as much as possible) so to do this I have decided to wash my hair less so that I don't need to use a hair dryer however when I do use an appliance with heat then I apply this heat defence. Again, I have literally no clue when it comes to being able to tell if it works or not, all I know so far is that my hair hasn't fallen out or burnt yet, so that's a good sign, right?!

Killer Volume Dry Shampoo - (Superdrug - £1.14)
Since having my hair purple, dry shampoo has become my best friend. I want to avoid washing my hair as much as possible simply because the more you wash your hair the more like your hair colour is to come out so I decided to invest in some more dry shampoo. After reading a post from another blogger saying that they have found this new range of dry shampoo from Superdrug I decided to investigate the options. There are quite a few that I was interested in but then this one "killer volume" caught my eye the most. I love having my hair massive and I thought that this would do two jobs in one 1) Freshens my hair between washes and 2) Give it awesome volume. 
I have used this product quite a bit since I purchased it the other week and it definitely does what it says on the can. Plus, you can't go wrong with that price!


Tresemme Paddle Brush (Tesco - Price unknown)
Head Jog Styling Brush (Amazon - £2.50)
This little hair brush from Tresemme has been a god sent for many years. It was originally bought for me because I used to visit my Auntie a lot and ALWAYS forgot my hair brush... Anyway, it is so light and travel friendly that you can simply pop it into your bath and be on your merry way. I bought this Head Jog styling brush. I saw a similar item advertised one day while watching a YouTube video (as you do) and thought that it was a good idea and would be great for giving my hair some volume as I mentioned about, I love to do. There are a lot more expensive ones than this one however I found that this brush works just as well, plus, you can't knock it for the price.

Batiste XXL Plumping Powder (Superdrug - £1.99)
I found this little beauty instore last week and decided to pick it up as it was fairly cheap and I had never seen it before so I thought that I would give it a try. To apply the product you simple sprinkle a little bit of the product onto your roots and then massage in, then ta-da you're done! I have found this little buy very useful and I will definitely be purchasing it again in the future. 

If you think that there is something that I could use instead of a product that I have already mentioned because it's cheaper/better etc then please let me know! I want to keep my hair purple as long as possible.
