Hair along with skincare is everything and that’s why I don’t neglect my locks. I have been dying my hair for yearssss all sorts of colors and shades, and my locks have never let me down. I do add elements to help my hair when in need of a little pick me up.
The photo below was taken on a good hair day when I didn’t even need to brush my hair.
Lets start with the basics, shampoo and conditioner. I will always be loyal to the TIGI hair care range as it’s value for money (in TXMAXX) and the bottles are uber. I get the bottles that fulfill my hairs requirements at that time. To be honest tho, you can’t go wrong with their range.
Other shampoo and conditioners I get are to add the hair ‘pick me ups’. I currently have an Organ Oil shampoo to add shine (who doesn’t like shiny hair) and L’Oréal purple shampoo to lighten and to make me look a cross between Atomic Blonde and Storm. They both work wonders. If your hair turns shades of blue/purple, simply wash with Head and Shoulders as this strips the hair.
Like with skincare, I double up when cleansing my hair. The first shampoo application (usually TIGI) is to clean the hair and the second application is to add the pick me up i.e shine or lighten the hair etc. And then I add the conditioner(s). The purple shampoos are drying so I tend to add loads of conditioner and leave it in for 5-10mins.
A lovely conditioner I’m using is by IGK. Im slightly obsessed with this range. I recently bought the IGK scalp treatment. I have no scalp issues but I got sucked in because I love their range.
Let’s talk about texture. Texture is key and I love, love, love it! Who is with me on this? It allows gives you volume and waves in your hair. In other words, it turns your hair into a hot mess.
The IGK range gives you THE hot mess look. I use the IGK 1995 shampoo and it works immediately. The instructions say that conditioner is not needed but because I am a blonde bombshell, I need the extra conditioner to be added. This will give your hair power.
Another item to try is the IGK Beach Club texture spray. Don’t waste money on the travel size if you are willing to give this a shot because it runs out quickly. Get the bigger bottle. One spray and your hair goes bang bang. Love the stuff!
