It’s not the first time I have mentioned hair on my blog.
From my experience with hair extensions through to my more recent bob cut and vibrant colour, I have certainly put my hair through the test.
Of course through any dramatic change in your hair you are going to notice a difference in condition.
I have not been bleaching my hair for a while apart from on my most recent visit to Bad Apple Hair in Stafford, where I was assured that I would see no further damage as long as I use the right products.
visit they also did an amazing Protein Treatment but made my hair actually feel like hair again.
But a Protein Treatment on the day is not going to last a lifetime so now I need to invest in products to ensure that my hair is continually in good condition.
Recently I also realised that shampoo actually does make a difference to your hair condition – after years of convincing myself it was only the conditioner that made any difference.
After changing from cheap shampoos and now using the macadamia oil one, I have noticed a distinct difference in the moisture levels within my hair and it is nowhere near as dry as it was before.
Making my hair feels thicker and more conditioned from the first use, I don’t think that I will be going back to the bog standard conditioners I have been using up until now. I have also been adding an extra boost of moisture with some Tigi treatments that I also bought from the hairdressers during that recent visit.
To keep my hair in top condition after shampoo and conditioning I have also started to use a heat defence on some treatment oil specifically designed for coloured hair.
I read that heat treatments that do a dual purpose don’t work as effectively as a bog-standard heat defence spray would.
And after using this osmo one for a while I can believe that. My hair doesn’t seem to experience that horrible sizzle effect that I have been getting in the past with products that claim to do two things such as heat defence and shine/hold etc.
As well as the above I have also stopped using hairspray as much as I have been. I have found that my hair becomes really brittle and weak when I use hairspray, and somehow just breaks off.
So any tips for holding my hair style when I have you teach products would be more than welcome.
