My hair care routine

I've dyed my hair several times in the past, from red to blond with green dip dye to brown. However because of school rules I had to return to my natural hair colour, which is blond, about half a year ago. My hair was pretty damaged back then. In the past half year I have managed to improve the health of my hair and I would say it is doing very well atm.

Products I use in the shower:

I am not picky when it comes to shampoo, I usually use whatever is there. At the moment this is the Herbal essences 'Hello Hydration' shampoo. I really enjoy using it as it cleans my hair and moisturises it. It is for dry and damaged hair and is therefore perfect for my hair. To clean my body I use the 'Vanilla Biscuit' Bath and Shower Gel by the little bubble co. I am aware that this is not for my hair but I wanted to include it because it is amazing. It literally smells like vanilla biscuits and makes my bathroom smell incredible. For conditioner I've been using the L'Oreal Paris Elvive 'Fribrology Thickening Conditioner' for thicker hair, which has done an amazing job at repairing my split ends and making my hair feel soft. Lastly every 2 weeks i use an intensive mask. Recently I've been using the Herbal essences 'Beautiful ends - Split end protection intensive mask'. It says to leave this in for 5 minutes, but I usually leave it in for about 30 minutes. After washing it out my hair feels so much better, it is smooth, hydrated and smells fantastic.

Products I use after showering/for styling:


After I've towel dried my hair I love putting in the 'got2B styling oil' by Schwarzkopf. I massage it in the ends of my hair and it just provides extra smoothness and shine. Moreover it protects the ends of my hair as one of its ingredients is Argan Oil. If I intend to use heat on my hair (I try not to blow dry my hair) I use the 'Heat Defence Stying Spray' by TRESemme. It does an awesome job at protecting my hair from the heat. If I need a bit of extra volume I often use the batiste Dry Shampoo. I love this apart from the fact that if you use too much and you touch your hair afterwards, your hand is white from all the excess dry shampoo.
If I want my hair to have more texture I use the Schwarzkopf 'got2b Texturising Salt Spray'. It does a great job and smells amazing. I also love the hairspray 'happy hour' from the same brand, as it is the only spray I've used so far which smells incredible (not included in the photo as I've sadly lost it recently).

I hope this was helpful for you. If you have any hair product recommendations please comment as I am always looking to improve my hair care routine.
Sending hugs out to everyone reading this :)
