2016 Haircare Favourites

I have had my hair bleached for a quite a long time now and I absolutely love it. I really don't like any type of warmth in my hair so going grey/white was a perfect move for me, although naturally I did worry about the condition of my hair. I have never really got greasy hair which has resulted in it being pretty dry. I haven't owned a hair dryer for years after it blew up on me mid hair dry, freaked me RIGHT out! Isaac also hates hairdryers...and hand dryers...bacically anything with a really loud, long noise, so I just never bothered repurchasing one. The condition of my hair is pretty good and in 2016 I made a conscious effort to keep it that way, these products have well & truly made that happen (with the help of my hair god hairdresser)! Here is a round up of my 2016 Haircare Favourites and I promise you, they are good! 


Sebastian Hair Oil

Due to my hair being reasonably long I have always tried to put as little heat on it as possible. When my hair dresser used this on my damp hair after it was bleached it honestly felt better then when I walked into the salon 4 hours earlier. (I am definitely one of them people who buys everything the hair dresser recommends and then walks out extremely skint) although I am so glad I did. Its almost a gel texture which works perfectly when running this through wet hair. It doesn't leave excess product in the hair like some serums do and just leaves it looking and feeling like the woman, in the waterfall on the Pantaine advert! True story.

Fudge Shampoo
Again - I purchased this as my hair dresser highly recommend this purple shampoo to keep the warmth, orange tones out my hair. Now I have purchased quite a few purple shampoos which so many people have recommend and it has done nothing for me (apart from make my white bath matt purple!).
Recently people have been asking if I have had my hair done again or what I use and I truly believe its down to this, keeping that horrible yellow out my hair and keeping it a really cool tone white/grey! I will always section my hair to use this, starting with the bottom and working my way up. I will put a couple of pea size amounts in a jug and mix with a tiny bit of water to lather up, then apply it onto my hair. I will normally leave it around 3-4 minuets whilst I shave my legs, then wallaa, apart from the walls of your bathroom being purple its like going to the hairdressers and getting a toner put on (minus the £30!).

Aveda Dry Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner
Hair care is such a strange one for me as I love my high end makeup products but never seemed to splash out on high end haircare until last year. I think its the same for many ladies as spending £60 on a litre bottle of shampoo was never really an option for me. Ever since working for MAC and being part of the Estee Lauder company I discovered so many different haircare brands which I had never really known about before, Aveda being one of them.
A friend of mine worked at Aveda so it gave me a really good insight on the products before any purchases were made as her bathroom was FILLED with Aveda Goodies! She had the 1L bottles of the Dry Remedy Shampoo & Conditioner and it was from that day, the obsession became REAL! I instantly bought the shampoo & conditioner and have used it ever since due to such a dramatic change in the condition, look and feel of my hair since using them.
Aveda are brilliant with samples so if you get to your nearest counter or salon, I would highly recomened picking one up and giving it a go! The price tag really is worth it, I promise!

Aveda Damage Remedy Mask
Yes its another Aveda product but ever since I got this I have honestly used it every, single, time I have washed my hair. Aveda do a leave in conditioner mask or a shower one which you leave on for 2-5 minuets. I have both and they both work brilliantly, I could not for the life of me decide which one I preferred. This has pure plant oils and quinoa protein in it which restores the health, silkiness and shine to the hair, Philodendron and barley to seal in moisture and castor, jojoba and oils to smooth the hairs surface. I can honestly say it does all of them things when using it, the silkiness to the hair is on another level once your hair is dry and my hair brush just seems to run through my hair without pulling or tugging any nots.

Tangle Teezer
I swear the days are gone from you you used to dread getting out the shower and pulling (what felt like chunks) out your hair with one of them longhandled hair brushes when you were little. I purchased my first Tangle Teezer 3-4 years ago and I havent bought another type of hair brush since. It goes so easily throughout the hair, wet or dry and doesn't ever pull or tug your hair. Its just an everyday...ok I defiantly don't brush my hair everyday...but an essential to have! I really want to try the WetBrush brand next!

Thank you so much for reading my 2017 hair care favourites, let me know what are your haircare favourites as I'm always on the hunt for new ones (I'm a sucker for haircare now!)
