Hair 'Mares

Reading through all my lovely comments from you beautiful people I have started to notice a common theme. You guys all seem to love my hair! I love getting these comments as I have always had a battle with my hair (as I am sure most girls have) and like the old saying goes, no one is ever happy with what they have got, right!? So as a lot of people seem to like my hair I thought I would do a little post about the products I use and how I look after it.

I have extremely thick hair and although I know people always want thick hair, it has always been such a big issue for me. First of all, my hair goes HUGE as soon as it gets any moisture, think humidity hair, think Monica from Friends hair. Ever since the age of about 10 I coined the phrase 'poofy hair'. This seems to cover all situations when my hair isn't as dead straight as I want it to be. Ever since the age of 13 when I got my first pair of hair straighteners, I have been a straitening devotee! I always straighten my hair to get rid of the 'poofiness' that seems to overtake it. However, recently I have started to appreciate my hair, and all the lovely comments I get about it have made me finally (kind of) love it and embrace my natural hair, I am even starting to not straighten it all the time!

Anyway, enough of that... here are my favourite hair products and recommendations to make your hair the best it can be!

First of all, my recently discovered and now favourite product: L'oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil. If you don't have the budget for Morrocan Oil, then this is definitely the next best thing, if not better. I apply it after washing my hair when it is still slightly damp and it makes my hair so shiny and healthy.

My next all time favourite hair product is Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, which does exactly what it says on the tin. This hair mask is an absolute miracle worker, leaving your hair feeling silky smooth!

Another of my fail safe products is TRESemme heat protection spray, an absolute must for all the straightening fans among you!

I always finish off styling my hair with a little bit of serum to try and keep the frizz under control! I have two favourite hair serums, Phil Smith Xtreme Style and Fish High Gloss Serum, two great products, I can't choose between them!

Finally the all time best solution for poofy hair is the ultimate pair of straighteners, GHD's. These are absolute life savers as I am sure you are all aware. As far as I'm concerned no other hair straightener can touch it! I would be lost without my GHD's and find myself taking them everywhere and I find it impossible to use any other brand, ultimate brand loyalty... I got my first pair at 15 and I am already on my 4th!

So there you have it, my product guide to luscious locks. You may never be in love with your hair but there are definitely many ways to make the most of what you've got.
