Looking After My Hair

I have thick wavy hair. Something that is a complete nightmare to style and frustrates me something fierce. I'm very bold and for an easy life I tend to GHD the life out of it. Sure, I use a heat protector but I still feel awful straightening it the entire time. Over the last month or so, I've consciously cut down on straightening and opted for styling my more naturally.

Washing My Hair

I'd heard great things about Argan Oil for curly/wavy hair but had never tried it.Enter Rich Hair Care Colour Protect Argan Shampoo and Conditioner* These lovelies protect coloured hair while also nourishing,strengthening and smoothing hair. 

 Both of these contain a precious blend of Argania Spinosa Kernal Oil to strengthen hair leaving it feeling soft, shiny and free of frizz. Hydrolyzed Wheat, Corn & Soy proteins are also on hand to help strengthen hair and reduce future breakages. They smell incredible and even though I've had them over a month , I've barely made a dent in the bottles

For Curly Days

Curly days happen during the week when I'm working. I apply Rich Hair Care Curl Enhancing Cream.

This is an  intense moisture cream that can help revive dry, tired hair to produce defined curls that are full of natural bounce. It also contains Argania Spinosa Kernal Oil to remove frizz and create softer, more manageable hair whilst Natural Coconut Oil Essence reduces static and adds immense shine. It also contains a blend of Hydrolyzed Wheat, Maize & Soy Proteins to improve the strength and texture of curly hair.

I find this brilliant for taming my wild tresses. Usually when I let my hair dry naturally, I have to tie it up cos the frizz is too much. With this lovely, I can actually leave my hair down.

For Straight Days

If I'm heading out to a special occasion or event, I always straighten my hair. 

I start off with a little bit of protection from Rich Haircare Pure Luxury Maximum Brilliance Protect and Shine.This heat-deflecting thermal protective spray is perfect for those who love their hairdryer, flat iron or rollers! The fine spray also locks-in moisture, prevents color fade and protects against UV & heat damage.

To keep my hair straight for as long as possible I use John Frieda 3 Day Straight. This is my 3rd bottle and I cant get enough of it. It makes my straight hair last much longer.  Retailing around €9 but you can usually pick it up on offer in Boots and Tesco. 

For ages, I wanted the Babyliss Big Hair brush but when I saw the Tresemme Volume Styler on sale in Argos, I just had to buy it. We got off to a bit of a bad start, as the one I bought was faulty.This was quickly rectified and I haven't looked back. This non rotating brush makes straightening my hair a doddle. Usually, I would have to wait a day after washing my hair before I could break out the GHD.  With this lovely, my hair is washed and straightened within an hour. It doesn't straighten my hair completely so I have to run my GHD over it.

** Rich Hair Care is free of Silicone Oil, Sulfates and Parabens. can be found in selected pharmacies aswell as **
