The Haircare #9: Healthy Hair Helpers
Monday, 21 October 2013
You know when you get some new products and are dying to use them? This. I did some unscheduled washing just to use these the day I got them.
While not damaged as such but I get regular highlights, so sometimes my tresses can feel a little dry. To add some TLC I thought I'd switch up my regime. A pre-shampoo treatment that actually came as a freebie with one of the magazines is the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer I've used this before and keep meaning to buy it again. It can be difficult for blonde hair to look shiny but I slather this on a good hour before washing or sometimes even over-night for a more intensive treatment and it leaves my locks feeling seriously silky smooth and manageable.
I then lather up with the Kérastase Bain Nutri-Thermique shampoo and conditioner. Superficial I know but these smell incredible and the scent lingers too. Honestly, I keep wooshing (technical term) my hair to get the smell. This combo works well to cleanse without leaving my hair feeling stripped or dry and the conditioner adds some more moisture to my mane. Just to note that I have stupidly thick hair. If yours is finer you may find that these weigh it down.
As much as I love undone tousled tresses, it's nice having a super straight, sleek style too but but drying it can be a job and a half but I find that these make that job a lot easier with less sweat and tears ;)
