Haircare Routine

So apparently I have never done a haircare routine post in all the time i've been blogging. I honestly don't know why i've put it off, but now i'm pretty happy with the products i'm using so I thought it was about time I shared them with all of you. For starters I have fine hair which is very flat. My roots get oily but the heads of my hair can get dry, I have have blonde highlights so I often look for product that help protect my coloured hair. 
Shampoo is something that I tend to change up a lot, my all time favourite is the Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo. However I dug out The Body Shop Rainforest Radiance Shampoo for coloured hair and i've been really impressed by it. It doesn't make weigh my hair done and smells lovely. It is also sulphate free which is something I tend to look for in a shampoo. Once a week or so I use the Pro Voke Touch Of Silver Shampoo to help keep my blonde highlights looking vibrant. 
My all time favourite conditioner is the Organic Surge Colour Protect Conditioner, this stuff smells like sweet peaches and nourishes my hair without making it feel heavy. Once a week I tend to use some sort of hair mask, i'm really not fussy with what I use. Currently i'm using the Boots Coconut and Almond Intensive Hair Mask, this is cheap and is surprisingly good. It makes my hair feel lovely and soft, it is great to use after the purple shampoo which can be a little drying.
After washing my hair I use a leave in conditioner, I either use the Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri Wheat Leave In Conditioner which is nourishing to the hair without making it feel greasy; the other one I use is the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave In Conditioner, this one is more intensive and is a great one step product since you don't really need to use an oil with it. I also use my Tangle Teezer with both of this to help comb through my hair. For oils I love the Macadamia Healthy Oil Treatment however I recently found the Miracle Oil by Aldi's own brand and it is actually pretty good! I would recommend it if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to some of the expensive hair oils. I apply either of these to just the ends of my damp hair. 
I keep it very simple when it comes to styling my hair. I always use the Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo, this adds volume which is very much needed and is great for giving a bit of life to second day hair. If i'm wearing my hair down I use a bit of the Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray, I tend to spray a bit of this on my hands and then rub it through my hair to give more body a texture. For hairspray i'm not fussy, at the moment I'm using a John Frieda Volume Hairspray which is okay and does the job. 

So that's everything I use on my hair. If you have any product recommendations for fine or coloured hair I would love to hear them. What is your favourite product in your haircare routine?


  1. I love that Healthy Sexy Hair leave in treatment! Works a treat :)


  2. My haircare routine doesn't have as many products as yours but some of those seem really mice. I might try that batiste dry shampoo (:

  3. How amazing is that purple shampoo? It pretty much saves my hair!
