Some Recent Hair Care Discoveries

Hey Dolls :)

Over the last couple of weeks I've discovered a couple of new amazing products for my hair that I wanted to share with you all.

1. Argan Secret Hair Elixir

I recently went a wander round Sally's with my friend Clare which is where I found argan secret. Argan oil is something that has always intrigued me but for some reason I've never taken the plunge and tried it. However, when I saw that this serum used both argan oil and hemp oil I immediately wanted to try it. I think the thought of using an oil on my hair always sounded a little finnicky and messy where as I hoped the oil in a serum would be much easier to use. I've been using this serum on my hair everyday (I've gone back to hairwashing daily) and honestly it is brilliant! Firstly, I've noticed that the time it actually takes my hair to blowdry has been cut in half. The serum adds a tremendous amount of shine and leaves me with a frizz-free do. Consistency wise, it's a clear serum that feels so silky and smooth...

However, as with all serums, if too much is used it can verge on the greasy side. Scent wise the serum is amazing, a lovely sweetened vanilla. On days like today (PJ days) I end up applying lots to the ends of my hair to add some much needed moisture which works really well too. Argan Secret is £15.00 from Sally's.

2. Lee Stafford Flat Iron Protection Mist

After using the TreSemme heat protection spray for a good couple of years, I felt it was time for a change. The colour and scent of Lee Stafford products always pull me in and so I decided to try their flat iron mist. I don't really know if there's much you can say about a heat protectant other than it works! It doesn't leave my hair greasy and dries really quickly so I can get on with styling my hair. Plus it smells amazing!

3. Aussie Mega Instant Shampoo and Conditioner

As I've said before I have really oily hair meaning I need to use a really lightweight shampoo and conditioner - In boots Aussie hair care is 2 for £6 at the moment and honestly it is the best lightweight shampoo and conditioner I have tried. It leaves my hair so soft and shiny without weighing it down and they both smell delightful!

I seem to have bought these products all on a whim but honestly my hair hasn't been as soft or shiny in such a long time!

Lots of Love
