Haircare Saviours

September 13, 2013

I've been thinking of doing a post like this sometime now, as there are a lot of hair products that I class as saviours when it comes to my dry and damaged hair. So I thought i'd talk about these products a little bit and maybe it will introduce you guys to some affordable yet amazing products.
Dove Nourishing Oil/Leave-in-Conditioner - Boots (£3.59), Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo - Boots (£2.99), Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner - Boots (£4.99), Tresemme Platinum Strength 60-Second Treatment Shot - Boots (£1.49), Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream - Beauty Bay (£10.76)

If you've read my blog for a while now you will know that I drown on about how damaged my hair is from when I had my hair ombre'd and from constant re-dying as well as heat damage. Truth be told my hair has actually got a lot better and I like to think it's because of some of these products i'm going to talk about today.

Starting with the Dove Nourishing Oil/Leave-in-Conditioner (review here), which is basically a hair oil and leave-in-conditioner combined into one product. I apply this to the lower 2/3rds of my hair after I have washed it whilst my hair is still damp and this basically leaves my hair feeling so soft and conditioned, I just love it. I think I called this a 'miracle product' in my review and to me it is that amazing!

The next product isn't one I use for damaged haircare but is one that I think everyone should own, this is the Batiste Dry Shampoo, I have the Tropical one at the moment but I use pretty much any of the scents available. I'm sure most of you know about this product, but it's basically a dry shampoo that you spray into the roots of your hair in between washes when your hair is looking a little greasy or dull and it just makes your hair look good without washing it. Apparently this is quite good for adding volume too, but I don't tend to use it for that.

Back to damaged haircare, the Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner is a product that I have repurchased so many times, I just love it. It's basically like a deep conditioner that I usually apply to lower ends of my hair where it is most damaged, leave it on for 3 minutes and then wash off. It basically nourishes and 'reconstructs' the damaged hair, leaving my hair feeling so soft and nourishes. Also not to forget this smells flipping amazing!

The next product is one I featured the other day in my Shower Time Essentials (post here) and this is the Tresemme Platinum Strength 60-Second Treatment Shot. This is basically another deep conditioner that I use about once a week, applying this to the lower ends of my hair, leaving it on for a few minutes and I then rinse it off. This product is like most other deep conditioners, designed to reinforce and nourish damaged hair. I can normally get about 3 uses out of one of these tubes, but I may just buy the Tresemme Platinum Strength Deep Conditioner as it will probably last longer and work out better money wise.

The last product is one that I use here and there, I always seem to forget that I have this product. The product in question is the Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream (review here), which is basically designed to condition the hair by somehow controlling the moisture balance and preserves the colour integrity of the hair. I love this product, one because it smells just like milkshake that leaves my hair smelling amazing. I apply this when my hair is damp, concentrating on the lower sections of my hair  and it leaves my hair feeling so soft and conditioned, I just love this product and it's lasting for ages!
