Hair care Favorites
Hi my loves,hope you are all doing great:) Today I wanted to share with you my favorite hair products that help me maintain my hair long and healthy:)
First I want to say a few things about my hair.My hair's natural hair color is medium to light brown,it is a bit wavy and pretty dry,was always dry even before I started coloring it a long time ago.For the past year and a half I bleached it and colored it till I got the almost platinum blonde shade I wanted.I don't wash my hair every day because that would dry it out even more and honestly,it would be a pain to style it :) I don't wear hair extensions,never have.
So here are my hair care favorites I have been using for a while now and that work well with my hair.
This is 'KEUNE' Platinum Blonde cool blonde shades shampoo,or a purple shampoo.It helps keep the yellow,brassy tones away and maintain the pretty platinum blonde.
I am using this shampoo for a few months now,and I really like it.I feel it is very gentle to the hair,wich is important if your is bleached and colored,and I noticed a big difference from when I first started using it.I use it every time I wash my hair,leave it in for 2-3 minutes and rince it off. I use it after my normal shampoo for colored hair,which I swich every time and don't have a favorite.
It is very afordable,think I payed around 6 euros for it and that is a big plus:)
Schwarzkopf GLISS 'Ultimate Repair Conditioner' (for very damaged,dry hair) - First of all this conditioner smells great,just like most of the Schwarzkopf GLISS products. I use it after my purple shampoo,on all the lenght of the hair,just avoiding the scalp,leave it for a minute or so and rince well.It makes my hair feel soft and I think it helps with detangle it. You can find this at any drugstore.
One more product from the Shwarzkopf GLISS line.My favorite hair mask,or deep conditioner if you want. This one is Shea Cashmere intensive nourishing treatment for dry,drained hair. I also use this every single time when I wash my hair,it says it is a 1 minute mask but I usualy leave it on for about 5 minutes or so because bleached hair needs all the moisture and nourishing it can get.Smells amazing,the hair feels super soft,it helps with combing it out and keeps it tangle free.Also can be found at any drugstore.
After my hair is washed and I let it towel dry a bit,I use Avon's Moroccan Argan oil Leave-in treatement.I am in LOVE with this from the very first time I used it a few months ago when it came out in their catalogue.
It says it is meant for all hair types but I feel like it works best with dry hair,since it is an oil.It has a nice lil pump so you can control how much product you want.I use between 2 and 3 pumps,and spread it evenly just avoiding the scalp.Hair is left soft,even dry split ends can look much healthier (even the only real cure for those you trim them).It helps a lot with blowdrying,as I feel I don't need to put that much effort in it.
If you are looking to try a good argan oil but don't want to spend a ton of money on higher end ones,I really recommend you try this one.It is a product that does what it says,and you can always find it on some kind of a sale since Avon always have sales and promotions.
TRESemme heat protectant with UV filter,very important step of the hair routine reagardless of your hair type.I use it every time I blowdry or curl my hair with a curling iron.I spray it on before blowdrying on a still damp hair.Less frizz,less effort to style my hair and I think it really helps with keeping it as healthy as it can be.Now I don't use curling or straightnening iron very often,just every once in a while,but I blowdry my hair straight with a big rund brush a hair dryer.
Hope this was helpful:)
These are my hair care favorites,how about you?What are yours?
Love and kisses:***
