My haircare favourites of 2015, one of my most sought-after posts and I can swear by these products if you are looking to grow your hair longer and add more volume. The products below have been part of my daily hair care routine for months and even years now and this help prolong my hair colour and grow my hair longer. (If you want to see my 2014 favourites then you can view this post right here).
The Aveda range was my first port-of-call for restoring years of damage mainly by colouring my hair often and using hair straighteners daily. This range has to be the most powerful I’ve come across to fix hair back to its natural state and enhance shine, moisture and boost hair growth. The Aveda Rosemary Mint Conditioner adds volume to my hair and nourishes the ends, leaving my hair much more manageable and silky smooth.
Split ends have always been a huge problem for me but over the past year or so they’ve not been a problem and that’s down to Argan Oil, I’ve used other oils in the past from Moroccan to Macadamia and they all work perfectly with my hair and leave it in excellent condition. I wouldn’t be without my hair oils now and notice how much they can increase hair length and prevent split ends.
Speaking of Argan oil I’ve been using extra hydrating treatment masks and love this one by Insta Natural Argan Oil Hair Mask, a gorgeous blend of natural ingredients that help to restore strength and shine to the hair. I normally apply this in the bath and leave it in for a good 15-2 0minutes but do enjoy using it as a longer treatment with a towel wrapped around my head as it leaves my hair super soft once washed out.
As I mentioned above if you’re looking to grow your hair then one of the fastest products that can give you great results is the Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum. This serum is applied directly to the roots and you start noticing effects after the first week! It’s brilliant and I enjoy using this every other day to add length and give my hair a vitamin boost.
If you colour your hair the first thing you want to invest in is a colour enhancing mask/treatment that helps to lock in colour and shine. This is a must have especially if you have red hair as it’s the most likely colour to fade quicker compared to other hair colourants on the market. I switch between the Aveda Madder Root range and the new Maria Nila range which I just recently come across in my local Sally Salon supplies store. I love the Maria Nila Colour Refresh treatment and use it every two weeks! It gives intense colour but still looks natural and lasts weeks! I always top it up but you could go a good three weeks before needing to use this again. You need to be very careful when using these colour enhancers as they do stain the skin when applying and I would recommend using gloves when applying these colourants.
You might have noticed my recent review on the Organic Surge hair duo and the shampoo has been a firm favourite of mine and something I’d keep buying as it leaves my hair full of volume and very shiny. The natural ingredients make this more luxurious and how soft it leaves my hair, I highly recommend you give this a try as it’s brilliant.
LUSH Henna has been my go-to hair colourant for a good three years now, ever since I started this blog actually and I’ve never looked back since so it’s a complete must have for me and a treatment I enjoy doing every five-seven weeks to give my hair the natural red finish I lust after. This block doesn’t just colour your hair but it also provides mega volume, strength and shines with the natural ingredients and volume enhancing properties. It gives my hair stunning highlights of red and looks completely different under different light settings depending on the weather so it’s great if you are wanting something unique to you and completely different.
The Bumble & Bumble pret-a-powder has been the best volumising/dry shampoo product I’ve used to date and I think the fact this gives you a two in one makes it totally worth the splurge and the effects are totally mesmerising! My hairs left with lot’s of volume and it thickens the hair up nicely to give lot’s of texture and keep oiliness at bay whilst working as a dry shampoo.
