Let me preface this post by saying that I am by no means a hair care or hair product guru. I simply want to share my favourite products that I use to take care of my hair as well as my routine for using those products. In saying that, I do like to think that I take good care of my hair!
Generally, I wash my hair twice a week. For some, this may sound strange or downright gross but it works for me. I will usually wash it on the weekend and then again in the middle of the week, depending on what day suits me best.
On hair washing days, I will brush out my hair with a tangle teezer before jumping into the shower. Once in the shower, I will rinse my hair all over and every second time that I wash my hair I use Olaplex. I purchase the No. 3 Take Home Olaplex from my hairdresser, and one bottle of this lasts me quite a long time! It helps to make my hair feel so soft and healthy, and keeps my colour vibrant as well. On the other days when I don’t use Olaplex, I go straight in with the Joico Moisture Recovery shampoo. This range from Joico is honestly amazing! The combination of the shampoo and conditioner has improved my hair so much and I have only been using it for about 6 weeks. Once my hair is nice and clean from the shampoo, I apply the conditioner all through my hair and leave it in for a few minutes while I shower.
After the shower, I wrap my hair in a microfiber hair towel do my skin care. Once that is all done, I take my hair out of the towel and rub in some of the Kevin Murphy Young Again hair oil on my ends. I use about two pumps of this and rub it in with my hands then brush through my hair with a wide tooth comb. The final step is to apply one pump of the Kevin Murphy Smooth Anti-Frizz Treament to the ends of my hair.
I then usually let my hair air dry for a while before blow drying it to make sure it’s completely dry before I straighten my hair. I use the GHD hair straightener, followed by the Kevin Murphy Shine Spray. If I curl/wave my hair instead, I will follow up with the Ouai Wave Spray and some hair spray.
In addition to this, in between hair washing days, I simply brush out my hair at night after my shower and spray through the Batiste dry shampoo along my part and underneath my hair on either side.
Hopefully this gives you some inspiration for your hair routine to either change things up or try some new products!
