My hair falls almost to my waist and is thick and naturally wavy/frizzy (more towards the frizzy side unfortunately). I wash my hair every 2-3 days but if I know I can get away with it, I will try and leave it for longer to allow natural oils to nourish my hair a little. So what is my routine - well from start to finish, here it is:
here for £9.99 with free shipping (500ml bottle).
here at £5.90 for a 250ml bottle of shampoo and £6.75 for a 250ml bottle of conditioner.
Rusk Smoother Conditioner
As you can see, after depriving my hair of heat protection for so long I jumped to the other end of the spectrum and now use a heap of products on my hair before drying/styling. I towel dry my hair and use the Trevor Sorbie "Volume Booster" spray from the Beautiful Volume range. I spray this only at the roots of my hair (this also has heat protection and shine enhancing technology in its formula). To be perfectly honest I don't find it works that well for me and I only use it because I want to finish the bottle! You can get this spray at Boots stores for £5.10 (200ml). Next I take a pea-sized amount of leave-in conditioner (see above swatch) and rub this between my palms. I apply this to the ends of my hair mostly but I take the remains of what is in my hands and work that into the rest of my hair. This has a pleasant clean and fresh scent but do not use too much or it will weigh your hair down and make it look greasy. You can get this for approx £10 for 250ml online. I spray Aussie Heat Protection spray all over my hair (smells divine) and then finally spray the KMS California blow dry spray evenly over my hair as a last step before blow drying. This claims it will speed up blow drying time by 50% and it does not disappoint! The Aussie heat protector can be bought from Superdrug at £3.99 for a 150ml bottle. I received the KMS spray in my December Carmine box, but you can buy it for approx £10 for 200ml online.
That's it lovelies! That's my hair care routine in full. I do sometimes use dry shampoo in between washes if I really have to, but I try not to.
What is your current hair care routine? What shampoo/conditioners would you recommend for someone who likes body and volume in their hair but still wants to eliminate frizz?
If anyone would like a more in-depth review of any of the products mentioned above, please tweet me or leave a comment below and I will try and do a separate post on that!
