With more frequent trips to the salon and less dabbling with home hair dye (yes you heard that here) I have been investing more and more in my hair. After all, if you can’t beat ’em join em and all that. I am currently rocking a dark brown to light blonde ombre, which I absolutely love especially as I am so undecided on whether or not I want to be a full-time brunette or a full-time blondie.
Shampoo: I am currently using the Lee Stafford ‘Bleach blondes’ purple shampoo which is pretty darn awesome at keeping any brassiness in my lightest blonde ends, at bay, Of course, the majority of my hair is a more sandy, warm tone of blonde but this shampoo just keeps the dreaded orange away whilst maintaining a clean blonde on the very lightest pieces.
Conditioner: In keeping with my purple tones products, I am using the Bleach London silver conditioner which I mentioned in my February beauty favourites. This conditioner is not only insanely nourishing and smells gorgeous, but it also helps, to again keep those prominent brassy tones at bay.
Deep conditioning: Once a week I like to treat my hair to something a little more nourishing and conditioning. I use coconut oil which is absolutely incredible at sucking the life back into over-processed, dry and highly damaged hair. I leave the oil on for as long as possible, usually 3-4 hours before rinsing, once dry my hair is transformed, into shiny, sleek and soft strands of goodness. I alternate this style of conditioning treatment with the infamous Bleach London ‘Reincarnation Mask’ which really helps to zap the life back into bleached hair. As the formula is quite thick, I tend to leave this on my ends for an hour or so before rinsing.
Misc products: I don’t use straighteners on my hair and go easy on the heat. I use the Nicky Clarke ‘Diamond Shine’ hair dryer for drying my hair, powering it on the medium heat. This thing is genuinely a shot of energy and my short, bob length hair is dry in seconds. I use the Redken Extreme ‘Anti Snap’ formula as a heat protectant and to pack the protein back into my locks. In terms of hair oils, I am still using the Alberto Balsam ‘Sleek and shine’ oil on the ends of my hair and keeping everything at bay with my leopard print Tangle Teezer.
