Today I would like to discuss my haircare routine with you. I don’t really care about my hair. In the sense that I don’t care how it looks. I do mind it being healthy and well-taken care of. It took me a while to figure out how to properly take care of my hair though. I still switch around my products from time to time, but I have now found a way of taking care of my hair that I like and I feel works.I have added pictures of all of the products that I use.
My hair is a dirty/ golden blonde color. It’s naturally wavy (and hence quite unmanageable at times), rather thick and it gets dry quickly, but greasy too. That is why I try to use products that nourish my hair, prevent it from frizzing but I also try to not overdo it as it will grease up my scalp very quickly when I use too many/ wrong products.
John Frieda Sheer Blonde Shampoo, Aussie Frizz Miracle Conditioner
The first step for me is cleaning my hair. For this I use shampoo and conditioner. I only use shampoo on my scalp, the conditioner goes in the rest of my hair. I put the conditioner in my hair after shampooing it, tie it up with a hair tie and leave it in until the end of my shower. This ensures that my ends don’t get any dryer, my scalp gets clean and my hair stays wavy as long as I air dry it. I don’t use any heat on my hair: no hair dryers, no straightener no nothing. My hair is already dry enough as it is.
Lush Jasmin & Henna Fluff-Eaze hairmask, Aussie 1 minute miracle frizz remedy hair mask
Once a while I like using a hair mask to nourish my hair even more. I like using the Aussie hair mask as a deep conditioner rather than a real mask. I just put it in my hair after shampooing just like with my regular conditioner. Since I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week this hair mask can easily replace a conditioner, because essentially it’s the same thing. The Lush one smells divine and I leave it for those moments when my hair can do with a little extra help.
Kerastase leave-in conditioner, SYOSS curl mousse
Then, when I get out of the shower and my hair is towel dry, I put in a leave-in conditioner and some mousse. The leave-in conditioner is there again to nourish my hair. I use the mousse to add some structure and give me those waves that I like so much.
Kerastase styling products: nutrigloss & oleo curl
There there are two styling products that I use on dry hair. The nutrigloss adds some shine and again more nutrients to my hair. I only use this on the very very ends of my hair as it is super greasy. The Oleo Curl is my favorite of the two. One, it smells nice and it is a sculpting products for curls while nourishing it at the same time. It stays in throughout the day and all you have to do is give your hair a squeeze and your waves jump right back into place.
Elnett hairspray, SYOSS dry shampoo
Then two products that I hardly use. I bought the hairspray to create my flapper girl hairstyle, but other than that I’m not a fan of hairspray. It’s sticky, it feels yucky and I always manage to get some of it in my eye. Dry shampoo is something I don’t generally use as well. It takes care of greasy hair when you haven’t washed it on time so that is the only time I use it.
Alright, that is my hair care routine & products. What’s yours?
One response to “Haircare products & routine”
[…] It’s been almost 2 years since I wrote about my haircare routine on this space. I’m not much of a haircare kind of girl, but ever since I had my hair cut in September I’ve been trying out a few things. By now, I not only know how to blow dry my hair (revelation no. 1), I also know how to blow dry it straight (revelation no. 2) or wavy (revelation no. 3) and I’ve even dabbled around with curling my hair (revelation no. 4). For each style I use different products. Some of those products I’ve been using for a while, others are new to the routing. This post will include all products I use on my hair: from cleaning to nourishing to styling. If you care to see the products I used to use, you can find my old post by clicking here. […]
