My Hair Care Essentials

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 straightening devotee! I always straighten my hair to get rid of the 'poofiness' that seems to overtake it. However, I think I have finally found the right products to suit it and make it the best it can be Therefore, I thought I would share with you my favourite hair products and recommendations.
First of all, my recently discovered and now favourite product: Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment. If you don't have the budget for Morrocan Oil, then this is a slightly cheaper alternative and 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! I have been using bottle after bottle of this for about 5 years now and nothing else can even compare!
Another of my fail-safe products is L'Oreal Elnett Satin heat protection spray, an absolute must for all the straightening fans among you! I use the '3 Days Straight' version and again, I have tried others but keep coming back to this one every time.
I always finish off styling my hair with a little bit of serum to try and keep the frizz under control! My favourite at the moment is the Kiko Restorative Hair Serum which smells yummy and seals the hair cuticles to keep my hair shiny and frizz-free all day long.
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.
