Current Hair Routine: The Styling



Continued from my previous post Current Hair Routine: The Washing here are the products I'm currently using to style my hair . . . 

My favourite haircare product ever, ever, EVER is Moroccanoil Treatment which I've been using ever since there was all the hype about it being a game changer in hair treatments (and rightly so). When my hair is still damp I apply the oil into the ends and then through the mids of my hair and it leaves it feeling and looking silkier, shinier and stronger, it disguises split ends and controls any flyaways or frizz. It basically just makes my hair appear to be in amazing condition! I go through this fairly quickly because I use 5 pumps each application, which is quite extreme seen as 1-2 pumps is recommended but I guess I'm obsessed and I have pretty long hair so this amount is what I like to use and it works for me :) It is fairly thick in texture but it never leaves my hair looking greasy!

The GHD Total Volume Foam is a product I'm still on the fence about. I bought it in attempt to give my hair some volume but I'm not sure it really does anything. Half the time I just let my hair dry naturally anyway so I don't even use this, but when I blow dry it I rub a few pumps of this foam into my roots and through the lengths of my hair beforehand in the hope it will give it some lift. I've seen bloggers who swear by hair mousse to add more volume to their hair but I'm yet to find a way for it to work for me!

I don't use a lot of heat on my hair, but for the times I blow dry it or curl it I rely on the GHD Heat Protect Spray spritzed over my hair to reduce any heat damage.

I find the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray really hit and miss! I've tried using it a few different ways to add texture in my hair - spraying it through my hair both when it's wet and when it's dry and scrunching it to create movement and spraying it through my hair before bed and putting it in a top knot hoping to create the tousled beachy hair look by morning - which sometimes I do and other times it just doesn't work out, looking really crinkly, unnatural and just plain weird! I really want to love this as it is such a hyped hair product which so many people love but I've just not got the hang of it yet!

I am never without a huge bottle of Batiste Dry Shampoo, I don't even know how my hair coped before I discovered it! When my hair starts looking a bit greasy I spray this into the roots to give myself a day or 2 extra before I need to wash it, which is a huge chore for me so anything that helps me prolong washing it is a winner! I've tried a few different brands of dry shampoo but I find they all do the same and you get more for your money with Batiste so I just stick with this now. I like how it has quite a gritty texture as it adds some volume at the roots too :) I know a lot of people don't like that this one's white in colour but for someone with very blonde hair this is an advantage as it just makes it look even blonder and is particularly handy to help disguise roots between touch ups.
