Sometimes I find I use so many different hair products that I can never source what’s working and what isn’t. Likewise, if I overload my hair with products it can end up looking somewhat lacklustre. I’m sure a good diet and sleep would help all the more, but I always need that helping hand. Just like skincare, a good haircare routine is so important and that’s why I’m forever sourcing hair products. I mean who doesn’t want healthy, shiny and frizz-free hair? It’s such a confidence booster.
Yes I love my shine sprays, the volumizers and the like, but sometimes I need something a bit more heavy-duty. Products that deeply nourish and have more longer lasting benefits than just a quick-fix are always my preference. They are the kind of hair products that work when all-else fails, give me that feel-good factor and most importantly, help restore my hair back to health.
I reviewed the Hola Coco Coconut Oil Hair Mask * back in June last year and I still love it, you can read my review here. Infused with coconut oil and shea butter extract, this deep recovery hair mask delivers all the things you would want in your hair: more hydration, increased shine and reduced frizz. It now even comes in new and improved packaging.
Rich and creamy, this is something I always rely on as the results are instantaneous. Having used this for several months now, my hair looks and feels thicker and breaks less. This is my number one hair product when I feel like I really need a hair SOS.
I love the idea of a coconut drink for hair. However, as well as coconut oil, this includes a blend of raw macadamia oil and argan oil as well as rosemary leaf oil, orange oil, jasmine extract and vitamin e, all of which stimulate the scalp.
The bottle comes with a pump so it is easy to control how much you use and you apply 4-6 pumps of this on dry hair prior to washing. As recommended, I focus on the scalp and work any residue through the ends. It can be washed out after 15-20 minutes, requiring at least two shampoos to ensure that there is no residue left in the hair.
Despite being labelled as a raw coconut drink, it is in fact the other ingredients that stand out to me in terms of smell and texture. It has more of a dry oil effect and as the name suggests, my hair quite literally drinks this up. Overall, I find this very good as a natural scalp treatment, leaving my hair looking and feeling healthier in the long-run.
Sometimes I do like to go back to basics though and that means just using an oil in its purest and original form. Especially when it comes to coconut oil. It just feels all the more natural and organic that way and I simply warm a bit between the palm of my hands and apply it to the scalp.
I’m a lot more generous when it comes to using oils in their natural form. That said, it does take a lot more shampoo to wash it out. This little jar by Tiana Fairtrade Organics is perfect for on the go. I also like using this as a lip balm or on any dry patches on my skin too.
I remember when Moroccanoil first came out many years ago and there was a huge buzz around it, especially its key ingredient argan oil. At the time, I didn’t see what the hype was about but I now see the benefits of using this wonder hair product.
Infused with strengthening proteins and shine-enhancing vitamins, this not only smells absolutely gorgeous but strengthens my hair and helps control that unruly frizz. It has got quite a gloopy texture but my hair loves it. Luckily, provided I don’t use too much, it doesn’t leave any oily residue. Although you can also use this on damp hair pre-styling, I like to use it on dry hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and the ends. It’s a great finishing touch and I pretty much use this everyday.
I am definitely finding that these hair products are a great addition to my haircare routine. They leave my hair feeling nourished and the effects last until my next wash. So have you tried any of these before and which are your favourite haircare products? x
