Secondly, I was a bit hesitant because I don’t feel like I have particularly amazing hair – or even just “decent” hair –
and thought nobody would give a shit so thought that it might be a little irrelevant. However, after receiving some lovely comments about my barnet, lions mane, Hagrid-esque mop hair in this post – which I’m pretty sure was all in the gorgeous photography but let’s just roll with it – and finding some products that I 100% couldn’t imagine my hair going without now, I thought it was time for a little update.
As I mentioned above, I was totally unfussy when it comes to Shampoo and conditioner. I really like Aussie as a brand, Richard Ward’s Chelsea range is lovely too. I also love
Kerastase and Moroccan Oil (but, ain’t nobody got $ for that all the time
) so I was a bit of a floozy – floozy? oh hey Granny next door – and flitted between a mixture of them all. However, ever since I tried out Bumble and Bumble’s Surf shampoo
, this totally
changed. It claims to give you buoyant body and a seabreazy texture and I would say it does exactly
that. It manages to give my hair some volume and body whilst keeping it silky soft and nourished, but not weighed down at all.
It really does just feel so light and weightless, add in the fact that it smells beautiful and there you have my perfect shampoo and conditioner. It is
expensive, much more than I ever thought I’d pay but this is totally worth it in my – not very noteworthy – opinion.
I only have one mask favourite at the moment and that’s Schwarzkopf’s Essence Ultime. It’s funny because I remember reading a review saying that it was just quite basic, but I have to totally disagree with that. It’s extremely thick and very creamy, it smells incredible and I just feel like you can feel the luxuriousness from the second that you put it on your hair. Wash out after a few minutes and my hair is honestly as soft as when I use much more expensive masks by the likes of Moroccan oil/Macadamia etc. You go
Glen Coco Schwarzkopf.
I have thick, slightly wavy hair that can get frizzy but struggles to hold a style – yeah, god really
did a number on me – so styling products are a bit of a lifesaver for my unruly hair. On a day to day basis, I opt for a loose wave and the one product that has become my “without this I would be Hermione’s identical hair twin” saviour is Got 2 B’s All star 10 in 1
. I am absolutely in love
with this because it really is a 10 in 1, does it all product
for a lazy cow like me
. It helps keep a style for longer, protects against humidity and
heat styling, gives shine and so much more. If I’m opting for straight hair, I’ll give a spritz of Got 2 B’s Mind blowing styling spray
which is a total wonder product and really does cut the drying time down to nothing (well,
obviously not nothing
, but significantly shorter). My final style is my “Am I Blake Lively/Tasha Oakley/[insert your own beach babe here] yet?” beachy waves. To achieve this, I wash my hair as usual, then spray a generous amount of Bumble and bumble’s surf spray
throughout my hair, plait it, leave overnight and ta dah… laid back, beachy, effortless waves. The surf spray is incredible for giving it extra texture and hold without letting it go frizzy/Hagrid-like which it definitely
would without it.
Disclaimer: I am about to rave about a hair product like there’s no tomorrow and I’m not even sorry about. [insert sassy girl hand emoji here]. My holy grail finishing product until the last couple of weeks was always Charles Worthington’s Volume and bounce texturising spray. And then I discovered Bumble and Bumble Dryspun finish and it has totally, totally wiped the floor with it. It instantly gives volume, texture and fullness but the difference between this and the CW spray is that this is weightless, it’s dry – you literally cannot even notice it in your hair – it’s just keeps everything in place whilst adding gorgeous texture. All the love in the world for this. All…
Once my hair is “done”, I love running some oil through the ends to keep it in good condition and nice and shiny and my favourite oil at the moment is Got 2 B’s Oil-liscious
. It really nourishes your hair and leaves it super shiny. Plus – and I would be a liar if I said this wasn’t the winning factor – it smells of watermelon. I rest my case!
The Pick me ups
Despite finally finding a routine and products that I don’t ever want to be without, I have to admit that washing my hair is a chore
for me so I try to go as long as I possibly can – #TrampOfTheYear – without doing it. I don’t particularly have a dry shampoo favourite but I have been enjoying Herbal Essences Dry shampoo
which I find works best left overnight and Bumble and bumble’s Pret a powder which is brilliant for adding a bit of volume to the roots and mopping up some grease (sexy times…
). I do feel like I’m never really
going to find a dry shampoo that I fall in love with. I just find that the ones that really take away the greasiness (forever sexy
) leave the dreaded white film on the hair. Any suggestions are very welcome!
So that’s it for my hair care routine/overly dramatic “can’t live without” post. I have to say, discovering these products has definitely made me appreciate and look after my hair a little more. And whilst I won’t be rivalling the locks of the Victoria’s Secret’s models any time soon, I am looking ever so slightly less Hagrid-esque. And as Tesco say, every little helps…
I would absolutely love to know what your favourite hair care products are? Any brands I need to try out? I would love to hear your thoughts 🙂
As always, thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!
These look like such cool products!
Candice | Beauty Candy Loves
Thanks lovely, I personally love them all 🙂
I don't know why but I always seem to neglect my hair and never spend a lot on hair products! Lately though I've been going going sulphate free with the OGX Coconut range and it's made such a difference to my tresses 🙂 I love the B&B range, might have to treat myself to some more of their bits!
Hanh x | hanhabelle
Ooh I was so tempted to try some OGX products, maybe they'll be my cheaper version of the bumble and bumble 🙂
These hair products looks amazing!
Thanks lovely, they really are 🙂
Great post! I love Herbal Essence's Dry Shampoo! I'm always on the lookout for new hair products as my hair seems to get immune (?) to the same product all the time. I really want to try the B&B range – who doesn't want beachy wavy hair?!
I know exactly what you mean lovely, hoping I don't need to switch these up as I love them! 🙂
I think I need got2be All Star in my life. My hair can take a lot of products in because they're quite thick and curly and wavy and puffy (how sexy does this sound? I know) and I love Kerastase OleoRelax range and RedKen Smooth Locks. Xx
Alexandra | Glam O’Clock
Haha I think you have amazing hair lovely, thanks so much for the recommendations, I've heard fab things about Redken!
Your hair always looks gorgeous Elle!
Thanks so much beauty! 🙂

I've been meaning to try Bumble and Bumble for the longest time. You've sold me. I'm off to find some tomorrow x
The Beauty Bloss

Thanks so much lovely, so pleased you liked it 🙂
I'm a big fan of Bumble & Bumble's serum as it doesn't weigh my hair down so would definitely like to try their other products and I'll have to give the Schwarzkopf mask a go!
Suze | LuxuryColumnist
They're so lovely Suze, I'd highly recommend 🙂
I've been thinking about Bumble+Bumble's range as I now have all my natural hair and it's a complete change to my usual routine – Surf sounds aweeeeeesomeeeeee
Britton Loves | Lifestyle Food Beauty
The surf range is so amazing Lauren, honestly you should definitely give it a go 🙂
Oooh I think I need to give BB's range another go… I have a few of their products – like the City Spray, but I think the Dry Spun finish is more what I'm looking for…
http://www.rockonholly.com – Fashion and Style Guide
The spray is genuinely incredible Holly, I've been recommending it to everyone! 🙂
Dryspun finish is amazing one of my most favourite products ever and i love Surf Spray too
It's so brilliant isn't it Andrew, so glad you liked it too!
I was totally the same with just using shampoo & conditioner, but have recently upped my game! I'm open to more products too, so will keep your fab recommendations in mind! 😀
Thanks lovely, so pleased you liked it 🙂
Omg yes you have the most perfect hair! I love the herbal essences dry shampoo and I have bumble and bumble minis but am always like cannot afford the big uns and shamefully DO use what my nan buys me, and yes I don't even live at home I am shameful haha! xxx
Haha thank you lovely lady. I am so with you on that, it is pretty expensive (I've taken to not washing my hair for as long as possible to avoid using it up 😉 )
Your hair looks so beautiful. So we can say these are really great products 🙂 xx
Ah thank you so much lovely, so pleased you like them! 🙂

I have yet to try any of the Bumble & Bumble range but I bought a travel set to bring on holiday – it's the invisible oil range so I'm looking forward to trying that. My one absolute must have is Macadamia Natural Hair Oil Deep Repair Masque – can't be without it! xx
Yes, I absolutely love that one too hun, such an amazing mask isn't it… will have to repurchase once I've used that one up 🙂
Your hair is so pretty!!! Mine is a hot mess.I like aussie and ogx for drugstore and redken . Never tried bumble and bumble
Thanks so much lovely, love the sound of some of the Redken products, and OGX have been raved about too!
I love seeing what products others use. I'm a big fan of redden for shampoo/conditioner . Tigi sfactor root boost is a great product for a bit of added volume!

Gotta listen if it's coming from you! Love your haiir!
Ahh thank you lovely 🙂
The B+B Dryspun sounds gorgeous, I might have to try that as I hate putting products on my hair after styling as they always seem to weight it down and take the oompf out of whatever I've tried to achieve x
Laura | Loved By Laura
Definitely give it a go Laura, I love it for that reason! 🙂
I haven't actually tried any of these products, but I love trying new hair products so must keep an eye out for some of these! x http://coffeeatmidnight13.blogspot.co.uk/
Thanks lovely, definitely keep an eye out 🙂
Those bumble and bumble products look great, I love nice tousled hair and yours always has a great texture and look 🙂 That Claudia Shiffer treatment is amazing and it smells soooo good, I swear by it too!
Ah thanks so much hun, so pleased you thought so! 🙂
Such a great brand.
I love products that have a moroccan oil- i think it really nourishes the hair.
I love your review in here too

Thanks lovely, totally agree, I love Moroccan oil too 🙂
I am that girl that uses whatever shampoos/conditioners I managed to pick up on offer in the grocery shop that month. I never used to have trouble with changing up my hair products often & using basic products but recently London water seems to be making my hair feel extremely dry so I definitely need to up my game. The Schwarzkop mask sounds amazing x
Beauty with charm
Ooh definitely check out the mask then hun, I highly highly recommend it 🙂
The Bumble and Bumble products look right up my street, I'll have to give them a go.
I'm that girl that uses whatever smells good, irrespective of what the product actually does…
