The hair journey continues, and many of you have followed me on this journey to support my fragile Scandinavian locks. Whether you are using a lot of heated tools, maybe backcombing a la 60s or just want to take more care of your hair after a normal day of outside stresses I have a few products to recommend.
Knot today, Hair
After having washed my hair I have to be so careful when detangling these strands, more often than not I will find myself with a knot that I’ll have to cut out basically. So I am very much open to anything supporting this situation. Alterna has so kindly sent me two products to help, and they are part of their Caviar Anti Aging collection.
My first product is their Replenishing Moisture Leave-In Conditioning Milk, simply take 3 to 5 pumps and distribute throughout your hair. It not only helps detangling instantly but it also drenches your hair with moisture and leaves it soft and shiny. This is great for me, as mine is always thirsty!
If I want to give an even more intense shot of moisture to your locks then I will use their Ceramide Shots. Single dose fully biodegradable capsules holding a very potent ceramide shot. Simply twist off the top empty content onto your hands before applying. And here it’s best to apply from mid-lengths to ends, suitable on both wet and dry hair. Your hair is left super soft, less frizzy, strengthened and protected from further breakage, and of course, moisturised.
Something that is really helpful for me and also leaves my hair looking all smooth after having dried is a hair oil, I used to think this would just make it more oily looking but how wrong I was. My ends are definitely thanking me. Virtue has sent me their Correct Healing Oil in a travel size which is perfect for those beach days in Greece. With its unique blend of pure oils and their exclusive Alpha Keratin it gives deep nourishment and hydration. Before use remember to shake the bottle to activate the formula. This has been my go-to since I received it as it really leaves my hair shiny and smooth, this will be kept in my bag.
The next product is something you can share with your hubby especially if he’s working on that prize-winning beard. I am talking about the Luxury Hair & Beard Oil By Erim, in a chic black bottle you will find this luxurious oil working for both of us. So if you don’t want to share I recommend either hiding it or buying two. Containing 8 pure oils all 100% natural, carefully mixed to penetrate the strand from the outside in, such as Argan Oil holding Vitamin E and antioxidants and Amla Oil helping to aid growth, oh yes please! The hair oil is non-greasy with a lovely fragrance easy to apply truly giving your strands that much-needed TLC.
OK so we have washed out our hair and given it moisture and shine, let’s look at your brush. I’m not going to lie I am not known to put much thought into my brushes, I probably never clean them ( sorry! ) and don’t know much about what I need in this area. I don’t style my locks much and after my first round-brush disaster resulting in having to cut off hair at the scalp I am weary but obviously in need of support. If you want to make buying a brush even more fun definitely get your brush from Rock & Ruddle. Beautiful natural bristle brushes help to detangle and smooth, leaving it with a healthy shine.
They have several different kinds of brushes to choose from and with so many designs and even a choice to personalise, why not buy as a gift? I received two brushes, the Cats & Dogs hairbrush and the Peacock design both are sturdy paddle brushes with natural boar bristles and an additional nylon tip per tuft to help detangle with ease whether it’s curly, straight or extensions, all kinds of locks are welcome.
My favourite part is that not only is this a brush that does what brushes do best, but it also helps prevent breakage and hair loss as well as promoting hair growth by cleaning and stimulating your scalp. You can remove the rubber pad to clean properly which is so important for both hair and brush health. The Rock & Ruddle brushes have been praised by both models, stylists and LFW, that’s saying a lot!
Remember your precious locks now that the summer sun is here, wear a hat to keep your scalp from sunburn and now you have some product ideas to keep your hair nourished, hydrated and beautifully detangled this summer.
