It has been quite a long time since I posted my haircare routine, 2 years and 5 months to be exact. But it is the 2nd most read post on the blog so I thought it's about time I do an updated one!
I got a haircut at the end of summer which was supposed to be just a little 'trim' but we all know hairdresser's inches are like triple the length of real life inches, so my trim turned into a shoulder length haircut and well, I wasn't happy. All I wanted was to grow it out ASAP. And here's how I've been trying to maintain it:
Serums and Oils
I have definitely raved about Macadamia so many times on the blog and their Healing Oil Treatment is no exception. My hair tends to get quite dry at the ends due to using heat products and to help with that, I've been applying one pump of the oil to around the middle of my hair downwards. I just rub it into the palm of my hands and brush it through my hair because it is a thick oil and if you apply it directly, you will be able to notice once your hair is dry. I do sometimes apply a quarter of a pump to my dry hair after it's been curled, just to add that healthy shine as well as work it's treatment. Lovely product!
Heat Protecting Sprays
I had the Tresemme Heat Defence in my last hair care routine and it's still a very well loved product. I do use a lot of heat on my hair, I'll be honest and this saves it a ton of damage, I must say.
Another one I love is the Berina Hair Heat Protector which I bought from a hairdresser I used to go to after seeing the woman use it on me, then started seeing it in some pharmacies which is always great. I do love it for times when I want extra volume whilst protecting my hair from the heat and as you can see, I do use it a lot! I think this is my second purchase in well around 2 years which is obviously amazing.
For styling my hair, I'm still very committed to the Jose Eber tools. I love their straighteners and since my last post, I also invested in a curling iron which I have been loving! I do find curling my hair with the curling wand very kind and gentle on my hair if that is true at all. But, it definitely is a lot less drying and I'm not complaining!
Brushes and Combs!
For brushing my hair, I have a brush and a comb. Typically when you're out of the shower, you'll use your comb first to detangle your hair whilst still being gentle on your scalp and brush later on. I did get the Macadamia Healing Oil Infused Comb with purchase and it is meant to work along with the oil, distribute it equally and leave a well wanted shine. To be honest, I don't know if it does what is meant to do and I sometimes forget the comb or can't be bothered with it but we can't all be perfect. I also have this very cute pink brush, which is your ordinary brush quite frankly!
Other than that, I wash my hair everyday and I do try to change up the shampoo I'm using because I've found, if I use the same shampoo every single day, my hair tends to get used to it and it just won't work with it as a shampoo anymore if that makes sense. Meaning, the shampoo won't clean my hair as it should. Along with that, I sometimes use Macadamia's Deep Repair Masque when my hair is really dry but it is very rare for me to do so which is why I didn't include it in the routine!
But that is all I use to at least try and keep my hair healthy and growing. Do you have any products you love and would recommend? Let me know down below!
I hope you enjoyed,
