Earlier this year I decided to have a little hair refresh for summer and cut my long, blonde hair up onto my shoulders. At first I was terrified and full of different regrets but as soon as a few days passed I realised it was long overdue! I always prefer my colour to still look natural which means it’s less maintenance (and money) for me! I always ask for a full head of highlights and finish with a strong purple shampoo to knock out any brassy tones. As for the cut I’ve had about 5-6inches off and a few longer layers added in for texture.
My hair is naturally quite dry so any heat styling just adds to the damage! A new love of mine is the Lee Stafford Coco Loco Heat Protection Mist*. I have been eyeing up this coconut scented, summer ready range since the minute it was released and I am smitten with the results. The coconut scent alone is enough to leave me wanting the whole collection! One thing I have noticed with this is that the scent stays locked into my hair all day which I LOVE. The texture is super lightweight meaning no greasy residue and the heat protecting ingredients ensure my hair is kept in the silkiest condition after styling.
Next up is the OUAI Wave Spray. I tend to spray this with a light hand all over before drying. The smell once again is beautiful and perfect for summer! Seeing as my hair is naturally quite straight this adds the perfect amount of texture into my roots and a delicate wave throughout the length. The results are amazing and it’s definitely helped me love my little hair refresh a lot more!
A new release from Batiste is their 2 In 1 Invisible Dry Shampoo and Conditioner. I was so intrigued by this when I stumbled across it in my local store that I had to give it a try. I love that its also a conditioner as my hair can feel a little worse for wear if I use basic dry shampoo. This is the perfect hair pick me up for in between washes and the conditioning properties make my hair feel super soft!
Whenever my hair is in need of a treat I always turn to the Lush Retread Hair Conditioner. This is such a nourishing treatment packed with avocado, fresh melon and olive oil to add softness and hydration. The next morning my hair always feels full of volume and healthy which every girl wants!
So there is a quick update on my recent hair refresh!
