5 HIGH STREET HAIR PRODUCTS YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO TRY

31/01/2017

2017 is the year of hair. 2017 is the year of my hair. 2017 is the year I finally give more time to my hair.


Lol, if I say this enough times do you think it’ll sink in?


I basically have always been outrageously lazy with my hair, using any shampoo, conditioner, mask etc. and then just letting it do it’s thing (which is usually frizz up into a mess more unacceptable than Hagrid’s). But this year I just realised that I need to do more, because hair makes such a huge difference to your overall appearance and, you know, I want to feel good in myself.


So I’ve been experimenting. Organic products, high end products, high street products… and what I’ve found – apart from 5 new holy grails – is that not only do New Look now have a Hair care range (hello, when did this happen and why did I not know about this immediately?) but it’s also ridiculously amazing. Insanely amazing. I’m talking gorgeous packaging, a vast range (shampoos, conditioners, shine sprays, beachy salt sprays etc.) and products that not only smell like an absolute dream, but they work like one too.


You Go Glen Coco New Look!

So let’s start from the very beginning (a very good place to start… no you have now got the Sound of Music soundtrack stuck in your head) and I’m going straight in with the Salt Crystals Volumising Salt shampoo. So, this stuff, is god damn incredible. Like, so incredible. It’s a volumising salt shampoo that lifts the hair and adds body whilst conditioning and moisturising simultaneously. I always find that volumising shampoos can make my hair quite dry but honestly, this stuff is pretty much miraculous. Nourishment and serious body – it makes me feel a little bit like the sassy girl emoji and I’m totally OK with that – and I genuinely just cannot get enough. It just gives enough volume to make you feel like you have all of the thick, bouncy, voluminous hair and I honestly just think that’s the one thing that almost fools people into thinking that the rest of you is “put together” (even if it really isn’t).

Because my hair is highlighted and styled fried to a crisp to oblivion, slathering on the conditioner is an absolute essential for me and I have found a new favourite in the Care and Repair Conditioner. It smells like an absolute dreamboat, it’s beautifully thick and creamy, it’s incredibly gentle on the scalp leaving absolutely no irritation – [insert all of the hallelujah emojis here] – and genuinely leaves my hair feeling like silk. 


I mean, you know the product is good when your tangle teezer is having a breeze combing through your hair and actually loving life for once.

I’m all about those effortless, beachy, scandi “I’ve just rolled outta bed” vibes, but I am also all about gloss. Shiny, healthy, glossy locks that can transform a whole look. The New Look finishing gloss Anti Frizz serum does that for me. All I do is rub a couple of pumps of products into the lengths and ends of my damp/towel dried hair, rough dry and leave to it’s own devices before styling the following morning and let me just tell you that this bad boy leaves my hair glossier than any other product I’ve tried. I have awkwardly semi straight but Hagrid/Hermione frizzy hair and the fact that this tames the majority of my frizz is just nothing short of a miracle.


I mean, I’m still part Hagrid because no product is an actual miracle and the serum doesn’t own a wand, but it’s like Hagrid on an extremely groomed day and I can handle that πŸ˜‰


It just leaves my hair silky soft and smooth, almost like I’ve just walked out of a salon and for Β£7.99, that is pure gold!

So I’ve mentioned I like gloss – only about 39483895 times – and another product that I now struggle to complete my routine without is the high shine glossing hair spray. This stuff. First of all, I want to point out that I was hugely weary of this as I am not a hairspray/finishing spray girl. I hate the crispiness and… hold, hairsprays give because I like my hair flowy and soft and touchable but this is different. Yes it has a degree of hold, but your hair is still movable, it’s still flowy and bouncy and definitely not stiff and stuck in one place. The thing that I love most about this however, is just that it delivers incredible high shine. I feel like this is my product that has to come out to play whenever I finish off a style/my hair is limp and lifeless and corpse-like because it just gives such a glossy, healthy boost whilst gently making sure that my hair style isn’t falling out within 2 seconds of walking out of the door.

Finally, the Root rescue volumising dry shampoo. I am the girl forever in search of the perfect dry shampoo. I want to spritz a couple of spritz and for my week old hair to miraculously look like I’ve just had a blow dry (lol at the fact that my life expectations constantly need to be taken down a notch) and whilst this product obviously cannot perform my necessary miracle, it is one of the best dry shampoos that I’ve found on the market. What I love about this one is that it doesn’t turn your hair into a big cloud of white powder. It gently refreshes your hair but is also really softening and natural. Yes it absorbs the oil – sexy times – but it also adds beautiful texture, volume and softness to the hair. It really is quite unique and has topped the leaderboard* of favourite dry shampoos for me.


*Please don’t act like we don’t all have this leaderboard because we do. Right? Right? Just me? Oh, awkward…

So that brings me to the end of my complete and utter New Look haircare range fangirl, to be totally honest… I could’ve gone on forever. They have a texturising sea salt spray that’s like “oh hey I’m an effortless beach goddess, how you doin’?” as well as ultra volume conditioner that I love, but the 5 mentioned today are 5 that I absolutely cannot imagine replacing for the foreseeable future. Because they really are that good. I have to admit, I was dubious when I found out that one of my favourite high street clothing stores had released a haircare brand because, more than anything, I just had absolutely no idea what to expect but as you’ve probably guessed by now, I have been nothing but blown away but how insanely amazing every product is. Every single one smells incredible, looks incredible and just performs like a total dream. What more could you actually want?


I would love to know if you’ve tried New Look haircare? If you have, which is your favourite product? And if not, are there any that you’d love to try? I always love hearing your thoughts πŸ™‚

As always, thanks so much for reading!

    Ah I'm exactly the same with my hair – basically buy whatever shampoo is on offer at the supermarket haha! I am determined to take better care of it this year though. That salt shampoo looks so nice, looks identical to the Big shampoo from Lush but I bet it's cheaper! Also completely off topic but the jumper you're wearing in this post is so nice!
