This is a quick list of a few haircare accessories I have recently purchased. After spending the last few of my teenage years bleaching my hair, I have completely abstained from dye of any kind for the past two years to let my hair heal. At the moment I'm on that never ending journey to find products that will help nourish my hair and give it some well deserved TLC.
1. Set of Hairbands, Primark, Opai - This costs me about £1 when I was on my Primark haul and having very long, thick hair means I'm aways in need of hairbands. These are a nice camouflage colour which looks quite subtle and are just good, basic bands. My question is, where do all my other bands go to? It's the same with hair clips, they all vanish into thin air!
2. Tresemme Instant Refreshing Dry Shampoo - I'm usually a devout Batiste girl but having read so many other beauty bloggers talk about his has made me cave. I got mine a few days ago and feel as though it works okay. Not much better than my Batiste but not much worse, just okay. It doesn't leave that white residue which is a good thing I suppose. I think I need more time for my hair to adjust to using this.
3. Small Twinpack Hair Doughnuts, Primark, Opai - Again, costing just a quid, I got this on my Primakr haul. Recently I've mastered the art of putting a sock-bun into my hair! If you haven't done it or know what I'm on about then just YouTube it, you will not be disappointed. I made my first doughnut with an old, clean sock and some scissors but felt it's about time I got a real one. I tried this last night and it works great, although I felt like I missed my own little beauty D.I.Y version.
4. Klorane Shampoo, sample - I was given this at the till of my local pharmacy. It's one of this nicer pharmacies that have perfume counters as well as medications, so I thought I'd give it a try. Honestly, I wasn't impressed at all by this. The shampoo didn't seem to lather up at all and that made it very difficult to clean my hair and roots. It smells okay and that would be its only redeeming feature. Maybe my hair isn't the right type for it but still, I won't be trying it again. Disappointing.
5. Tangle Teezer - I have been wanting this for a while now after seeing all the positive reviews on it. I honestly thought, how this could be such a good product? but after I got mine, I was beyond impressed. This cost me £10.00 from Boots and it's the best tenner I've ever spent for my hair. It just brushes out the tangles in your hair (I have a lot) without breaking any and it also smoothes it out. I now use this all the time, morning, noon and night. I use it on dry hair and wet hair, both ways works just as good. My hair actually feels better quality after using it for only a week which is amazing! If you haven't got this yet then make sure you do soon, it is a wonder product for hair and I just wish I had had it when I was younger. I'm sure the genius who invented this is one happy person today!
