Sneaky behind the scenes snaps…

 I have a love/hate relationship with my hair: same-day washed hair has too much volume, second-day hair is perfect and third-day hair becomes a greaseball beehive (sorry for the TMI folks). My hair meets the oily/greasy criteria, if you suffer from this, then this post is for you. To those bursting-for-volume and coloured hair types, I will cover those based on advice from friends who fit those types.

On a day-to-day basis, I use Aveda Shampoo & Conditioner to balance my scalp. It’s. So. Damn. Good. I used to make the mistake of using strong medical shampoos, oh, big mistake. It would dry out my hair temporarily but then extra produce sebum to lubricate the roots due to the lack of moisture. Aveda is pricey but it doesn’t contain the rubbish chemicals that you’ll find in supermarket products. I honestly think that shampoo is not a product that you should compromise on. I occasionally use Moroccanoil Shampoo & Conditioner, post here).

If you’re a dude and you by so happen to be reading my girly blog (awesome) — I’d recommend Aveda Hair Range to you too, depending on your hair type. For limp hair, I’ve had a nosey posey around on how to volumise and thicken hair. For a high street brand, the Pantene Pro V range is pretty good.

I’ve also discovered that Aussie Shampoo is great for pre-curling and has a yummy smell.

Back in my ginger-to-brown-to-purple hair days, I used to use Kerastase Riche Shampoo. It was great for keeping my rainbow locks healthy, whilst maintaining long term hair health. A message for Goldilocks, if you’re out there and reading this, let me know how the above products work for you, I have porridge.
