Hair Advice Needed!!

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Hey girlies,

Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday so far, I'm not too happy that it isn't a very nice day today, it's like we get two days of sunshine and then that's it. Pfft British weather eh!

Now just a quick little post- I need some help and thought you girls would be the best people to ask! Recently I've noticed my hair has been feeling really dry and not in great condition at all. To be honest, I think most of it is down to the fact, I'm mostly pottering about the flat these days and I just put my hair up and I've had a couple of days of sunbathing which always makes my hair feel dry.

I obviously need some kind of deep conditioning, so can anyone recommend a great hair product conditioner/mask/ whatever you've found great and preferably from places like Boots/Superdrug.

I know the Aussie stuff is really good and my Mum uses the three minute miracle, so was thinking of maybe getting that but just wanted to maybe find out about some other products!!

Thanks girlies :) hope you all have a lovely Sunday :)

P.S I am thinking about starting to make videos as I have a video camera and I have no uni any-more, however I'm not sure what I'd make the videos about so if anyone has any requests or tips that would also be great! Thanks once again lovelies :)

  1. Hiya :)

  2. I know there's a massive hype about the VO5 Arganoil atm, which is like £4 I think from Boots, but for a conditioner/mask I recommend the Matrix Biolage Hydratherapie conditioner/mask - it's about £8 from cheapsmells or feelunique but most drugstore masks are about £5 anyway, and I've tried the Umberto Giannini one in the white tub and it just does not compare to the Matrix and I never use them! I didn't like the Aussie Miracle Moist, I don't think it's intensive enough! I love using the Tresemme Moisture shampoo, so their conditioner might be a good shout too! :) I have pretty dry hair so this is coming from someone probably in a worse condition than you ;)

    LOL sorry for the ridiculous length!

  3. Definitely buy yourself some Aussie leave in conditioner I guarentee you will feel the difference after the first time using it and i'm pretty sure all Aussie products are 2 for £5 at the moment so grab it whilst it's on offer in superdrug. I would also reccomend pantene intensive repair and protect jar or herbal essences beautiful ends intensive mask, whilst you're at it you can earn yourself some points in superdrug if you've picked up a beauty card. Needless to say don't over wash your hair and try not to use heat so much, leave it in plaits over night and have wavy hair the next day. Make sure you use a really good conditioner and leave it in longer than usual, if I have time one thing I like to do is leave my conditioner in my hair, wrap my hair up in a towel, sleep in the conditioner and then wash it out the next morning - your hair will be noticeably so much softer :)

  4. aussie is really good! I love vo5 hot oil treatment (but oddly enough it doesn't feel oily!) pop the little bottle in a mug of hot water to heat up and massage for a few mins and rinse out.

  5. I think you should try argan oil! But make sure to look at the ingredients to be sure that it's 100% argan oil, not that ridiculous Moroccan oil stuff. (:

  6. Start using Herbal Essences smooth& soft, the shampoo, conditioner and 3 times a week the masque. Use Aussie miracle leave in conditioner. you will see results it transformed my hair in like two days!

  7. I have incredibly dry, unhealthy hair that I damaged through dying over and over again and the only thing that has actually restored it was the Ojon haircare range. I use the 2 minute restorative mask treatment instead of a conditioner and honestly it works wonders. Then after blow drying my hair I use the Ojon Shine and Protect Glossing Mist. The range is very pricey and I was lucky to get it as a present otherwise I would have never have bought it for myself.
    Out of all the products I have tried this range was the only one that actually made me feel like my hair is healed. Definitely worth a try!

  8. I use john frieda stuff but don't think it really helps as my hair is like straw! I've heard about lots of hot oil treatments though which are meant to be great!
    The weather sucks today, hope it's not the ned of our 'summer' xx

  9. Aussie take the heat is lovely, honestly best thing i've used for ages! I used the leave in conditioning spray before i straighten it and it reacts with the heat of straightners or something. Its currently 2 for £5 at superdrug on Aussie xxx

  10. Definitely the umberto giannini mask. Think it's about a fiver from boots and it's the moisturising one in the white tub. It makes my hair so soft and smells gorgeous too!


  11. Coconut oil is a really good deep conditioner, and it's natural, too! You can get it at the grocery store, because it's used for cooking also. I don't know what kind of shampoo you use, but If you don't already, I suggest switching to a sulfate-free shampoo, because when I did it make my hair so much softer and shinier and amazing!

  13. Aussie's always a good shout, though if it's dry from heated appliances, the best thing is just to give them up for a while. It's the best thing I ever did for my hair! xx

  14. I'd definitey get aussie's 3 minute miracle, I love it.

    I also love James Brown London's Richly Moisturising for Dry hair shampoo and conditioner. Which you can get from Boot's. I have used his products for a good number of years now and even when I try to stray away from them and find another alternative I always go back.

    Good luck with finding something (:

  15. I hate when my hair feels like that! I would for sure use the Aussie 3 min miracle and i REALLY like the L'oreal Total Repair 5 mask for a drug store one but if you guys have Redken there, i would try the Extreme CAT-I did a review on that too if you wanna see that and then decide.So many options! =)
    I am a new follower too so i have a lot to catch up on your blog =)

  16. The best deep conditioners for hair I find are natural oil ones :) i normally mix extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, argan oil, camella oil, castor oil and almond oil together (in a dark glass bottle to prevent it from oxidising and going rancid). i apply to my hair n normally leave overnight. To wash it out u can use BIG shampoo from lush or for a cheaper alternative you can add some coarse sea salt to ur normal shampoo n use that instead. Condition as you usually do after shampooin.
