Over the past few months, I’ve really been trying to take better care of my hair – it was getting far too dry and frizzy for my liking so I decided to switch up my routine and give it a little refresh. I’ve really noticed a difference in the way it looks and feels these days so I think I’ve finally narrowed down some haircare that really seems to do the trick! Here are some of the newbies that I’ve introduced into my weekly hair routine:
I posted a picture of the Kristin Ess Strand Strengthening Reconstructive Moisture Mask on my Instagram a few months back, and I’ve been using it roughly once a week as an intensive conditioner after rinsing out shampoo. I leave it on for about five minutes while exfoliating in the shower, and then wash it out afterwards – it leaves my hair so silky soft and nourished which makes it super easy to comb out and blow-dry afterwards. I feel like this really injects my hair with enough moisture to deal with heated hair tools – I know it’s not the best to blow dry after each wash but if I don’t, I end up looking a little like Monica in Barbados…so this mask it the best I’ve found to help prevent my hair from getting too dry for the time being.
To help with the frizz situation, I love using the American English Seaberry Dry Oil* after stepping out of the shower to add a little smoothness and give my hair some extra shine. This is definitely going to last a long time because I only use the tiniest amount and it does the job perfectly. The scent is absolutely gorgeous too, and it lingers for a good while afterwards!
Before blow drying, I spritz the Kristin Ess Blow Dry Mist all over. It’s incredibly lightweight, so it doesn’t really feel like lots of product in your hair, but it works wonders at speeding up the drying process and protecting each strand from heat damage. I can’t look back now that I’ve tried this gem, and I know I’ll be repurchasing it for years to come.
If I want to style my hair straight after washing and a blow-dry, then I’ve found myself reaching for the Percy & Reed Dry Instant Volumising Spray* to lift my roots a little and make my (very) fine hair look a bit fuller. Again, you need the tiniest amount to see a difference, and I love that it doesn’t weigh your hair down or make it feel crunchy after a while. This one is also incredibly affordable, so it’s definitely a win-win.
The only thing left is a little texture, and I’ve found the OUAI Texturising Hair Spray* does a wonderful job at adding texture without knotting my hair. It’s the perfect product for that effortless beachy vibe, and it adds a little grit to avoid that slippery, freshly-washed hair situation. I flip my hair upside down and mist a little all over my head for a bit of extra volume – if you scrunch the strands a little as you style them, it gives that lived-in look that I’ve been wanting to achieve for the longest time!
