Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

Current haircare loves from Pureology, John Frieda, Kerastase & more!





I've mentioned (probably several times!) before that my hair is dry and quite damaged as a result of years of colouring, heated tools, illness and the medications that go with treating that illness but at the moment, my hair is behaving and looking and feeling a lot healthier. I have a LOT of haircare products but today am going to share the products that I am reaching for most often and that are helping my hair to look and feel better. 


First up are a shampoo and conditioner from Pureology and they are both from the Strength Cure range. I find that I always lean towards hair repair products, rather than just those for dry hair because I like products aimed at preventing breakage and repairing damage. Both of these products smell amazing - quite like cocoa butter mixed with baby powder, which I love but I was worried that they might feel too heavy on my hair or be difficult to rinse properly - thankfully, I was wrong. The shampoo lathers really well and when I rinse it out my hair feels very soft, clean and not at all stripped or brittle. I follow up with the conditioner, which has the same scent and I leave it on for 2 minutes before rinsing. My hair is feeling strong, smooth, silky and is less tangled and therefore less prone to breakage since I started using these products. These products are 100% vegan, don't contain any sulphates and include anti-fade and asta-repair properties. I would highly recommend them to anybody who has hair similar to mine.

Before I use my tangle teezer to brush through my hair, I spray some John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Miracle Leave in Conditioner through the lengths. This product is also aimed at nourishing the hair and preventing damage. I bought this to replace Unite 7 Seconds Conditioner because it is around a third of the price and I have to say that I am enjoying using it. It doesn't weigh my hair down and helps the tangle teezer to glide through my hair. I also use a few drops of Kerastase Elixir Ultime at this point - I always use some oil in my haircare routine and this is the best one I have tried. It is expensive, but a bottle lasts me for about a year. This oil can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment or pre-blowdry or post-blowdry - whichever you personally prefer. It really nourishes the hair and has a beautiful scent - similar to Calvin Klein Escape perfume.

Before drying my hair, I always apply a heat protector and the one I reach for most often is Kerastase Ciment Thermique. I use a small amount of this on the lengths of my hair (from the ear down) and it doesn't weigh my hair down at all. It is activated when heat is applied and it is fantastic at protecting the hair and nourishing too. It leaves my hair feeling very bouncy, which I love.

Before drying I also use Living Proof Blowout on the roots to add some volume to my hair. I have a lot of products which aim to increase the volume of the hair but this is my favourite at the minute. It makes a noticeable difference with a small amount of product and doesn't leave the hair feeling sticky or heavy like some volumizers do. It can also be used as a refresh on second day hair but I find that I don't need that because the volume stays in my hair.

This may seem like a lot of products but my hair doesn't feel at all weighed down by them and the combination of them is really working for my hair at the moment.
