Hair Styling Heros

We all have those product that we love and rebuy for years - with no alternative being able to compare. I'm super lucky and get to try out a huge range of beauty products and to my husband's despair, despite packages dropping through the letterbox daily, there are still those I shop for religiously. So here are my hair-styling heros that I can't be without….

 My hair does get tangly when washed but a quick spritz of Unite 7 Second Conditioner  (£16.90 Urban Retreat) melts away any knots so I can comb my locks and start the drying and styling super quickly. I find I need far far less of this beauty than I do using other leave in conditioners, 3 sprays around my mid sections (left, right and back) and then the comb just slips through. Magic.

 A new hair hero for me is Living Proof Prime Style Extender (£19 Space NK). This really helps any other product you put in your hair, reduces frizz caused by dampness or humidity and helps hold your style to boot. 

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray (£22 Boots) was a discovery I made at the hairdressers when I was bridesmaid for my friend over 5 years ago where I had my hair curled… I didn’t notice how amazing it was until the next day when I expected the curls to have fallen out and my hair in need of a wash. Pretty waved remained and not a greasy root in sight. It absorbs oil so your hair doesn’t go limp (giving a extra volume) and helps hold your style - whenever I don’t use it (which is a very rare event) my style falls out and my hair needs washing much more quickly. Although this is called a ‘hairspray’ you apply it to wet hair pre-styling….

 My final hair-styling must-have is Therapy Rejuvenating Oil Mist by Label M. (£18.99 Amazon) I use this for ‘dressing’ my style - a term I picked up from a hair stylist… If I’ve gone for waves, after curling, I spray onto a bristle brush and go through the curls to make them into looser waves. It stops you just getting a frizzy-mess - defining the wave and added shine to your loos, helping create gorgeous soft healthy looking hair. I also use in a similar way when I go for a straight look too.

 Being the beauty junkie I am, I do use other products to create different looks, but these guys are my essentials that I take everywhere and use every time wash and style my hair. If you have any hair heroes you can’t live without I’d love to hear about them in the comments below, so I can try them out!
