Current Hair Favourites

After almost a year’s hiatus, I am finally back. I actually kinda missed writing about beauty and fashion schtuff. This is something that really gets me excited and I am so glad to be back and running….or rather writing!
I am going to start off with recent hair products that I have really been enjoying these past couple of months. In December 2014, I took the plunge and decided to colour my hair a little lighter. I opted for balayage because I wanted my roots to be still dark but wanted my ends to be a little lighter. Although I totally fell in love with the look and style, the ends looked really dry and brittle. I chopped a couple of inches off my hair this past month hoping for a healthy appearance. We are getting there slowly and steadily. Below are the products I have been LOVING recently.
Lets talk hair type. My hair is really oily at the roots (I cannot go more than two days without washing it!), my ends are dry and my hair is wavy and frizzy! Talk about a living hell. But luckily I have found a few products that I have been using to tame the beast.

1      SHAMPOO:
Herbal Essences Rejuvenating Shampoo (~ CAD$ 5.00) AND Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo (CAD$ 25.50)
I use the Herbal Essences twice a week because it’s moisturizing and doesn’t dry out my hair. I use the B&B once a week (on Wednesdays, NOT on Sundays – Scandalous! I know) for a deep clean. Your hair will feel squeaky clean (almost rubbery, I don’t know if that’s a good thing), so make sure to follow up with a nourishing conditioner.

OXG Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner (~ CAD$ 10.00)
I could never find anything moisturizing enough. This conditioner is nice and thick. I apply this from the mid-length of the hair to the ends and comb through with a wide toothcomb to remove the tangles. I leave the conditioner on for about 5 mins and then rinse off.

Moroccan Oil Treatment -100ml (CAD$ 47.00)
I strictly use this product only on my ends. This tends to get greasy if you apply it to the roots. I wait until my hair is about 50% dry and use only one pump and run this through my ends. It makes my hair all soft and shiny!

4      HAIR MIST:
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer (CAD$ 29.50)
I use this after I towel dry my hair. I was initially skeptical because products like these tend to way my hair down, BUT…it didn’t! It is a very light spray that can also be used as a heat protectant. A couple of spritz and you are good to go. Plus, it smells delicious.

Batiste XXL Volume – Big and Bouncy (CAD$ 8.99)

I use this on second day hair for texture and soak up the oils from the roots. This gives incredible volume and oomph to my hair. Although it does spray on the hair with a white mist, just make sure to massage the product really well into the scalp. A little goes a long way, so make sure to use this sparingly.

So thats pretty much it for this post! There will be more to follow. 
Much Love,
