Today I’d like to talk about some of my favourite hair products. There is a brand that I have been using a lot since I started to dye my hair into blonde and that is Lee Stafford. One of the best things that I have found out is that Boots usually has a special offer for these. You can buy 3 Lee Stafford products for £15. Bargain!
As a Spaniard, my hair colour is naturally dark, but I love the way I look with blonde hair. When I started to change my hair colour, I had to bleach it quite a lot in a very short amount of time. This left my hair severely damaged and dry. My hairdresser recommended that I started using the Bleach blondes’ shampoo, which is suitable for bleached or highlighted hair. I was a bit sceptical about it to begin with, but when I saw that the horrible yellow tones suddenly disappeared, I almost cried out of happiness!
The only issue that I see with this shampoo is that your hair can turn a bit purple/pink if you use it too often; hence why I started to alternate it with the Everyday blondes shampoo (also suitable for natural, highlighted or bleached blondes). They cost around £6.99 individually.
Another product that rescued my poor badly treated hair was the Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. I know what you must be thinking right now: hang on a second, isn’t that for cooking!? Well… yes… but I have to say that it is one of the best things that I have used on to my hair during its worst days. Apply it as a hair mask and leave it on for about 20 or 30 minutes while your hair is still wet. Trust me. If you hair makes you look like a scarecrow, this is definitely worth a try!
Another product that I tend to carry with me in my handbag is the Coco Loco coconut balm. It costs £6.99 and has the benefit that you can use it any time, anywhere because of its size. Plus the coconut smell is absolutely gorgeous! In this range, you can also find the Coco Loco shampoo, which is a bit cheaper than the others that I mentioned above. However, I don´t think this is the best if your hair is in a very bad state.
As you can imagine, whenever I’m on holiday in Spain, I spend a lot of time sunbathing on the beach with my friends. When I’m there, I use the Beach babe sea salt spray or the Poker straight spray. They cost around £8.00 pounds each and will leave your hair feeling smooth and silky. My hair is naturally curly so after I go swimming it gets very tangled and it is difficult to manage unless I use these products. I can assure you that they will make your life so much easier during your holidays!
Finally, if your hair tends to break easily, then I suggest that you use the Bleach blondes’ conditioner or the Hair growth treatment pink. Don´t worry. You won´t turn into Rapunzel from one day to another; instead you will find that your hair becomes stronger, healthier and more shiny, smooth and hydrated. This last product costs around £8.49 and needs to be apply with a head massage while in the shower.
Seriously, these hair products are AMAZING! So why don’t you give them a go?
