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 back combing a la 60’s or just wanting to take more care to your hair after a normal day of outside stresses I have a few products to recommend.
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. My hair personally is always thirsty! Your hair is left soft and shiny. I
f I want to give an even more intense shot of moisture 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 to your hair. 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 it is a hair oil, I used to think this would just make my hair oily looking but how wrong I was. My ends area 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 hair and beard. 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 outside in, such as Argan Oil holding Vitamin E and antioxidants and Amla Oil helping to aid hair growth, oh yes please! The hair oil is non greasy with a lovely fragrance easy to apply truly giving your hair 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 my hair needs in this area. I don’t style my hair 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 hair brushes helping to detangle and smoothen your hair, 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 a sturdy paddle brush 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 stimulation 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 has 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.
