Winter Saviours Part 4 - Hair


My hair is dry and damaged due to over colouring but the cold weather and central heating make it worse, if I don't up my haircare game it becomes even drier and more knotty. I've got a haircare routine I'm really happy with at the moment and my hair looks and feels much better for it. The biggest concern for me at this time of year is to smooth down the damaged bits and keep it tangle free and moisturised to prevent more frizzy bits developing

I'm currently alternating two different moisturising shampoos - Kerastase Bain Satin 2 and Korres Almond and Linseed Oil Shampoo. The Kerastase one feels more luxurious to wash with than the Korres one but I still use the Korres one because the results after drying are so good. Full reviews of both of these to come

Recently I discovered the Charles Worthington Intense Rescue Melting Balm. This is a solid wax which you scoop out of the pot, rub around in your hands until it melts into liquid, then smooth over the mid lengths and ends of your (dry) hair. I like to leave it for as long as possible - all day if I'm working from home - before washing out and conditioning as usual. I find it makes my hair really smooth and soft and I like the feeling of 'feeding' my hair with an intensive treat. It's fairly pricey but I've had my pot for ages and barely made a dent in it, you really don't need much. Plus it's usually on offer in Boots with at least £5 off

I am a bit of a conditioner junkie, always trying something new (and spending a fortune on it!) But the conditioner I come back to again and again is Joico K Pak Intense Hydrator. I like to use this on towel dried hair after washing, comb it through then wrap my hair up in a turban and let it soak in for a good half an hour. After rinsing out and drying the results are absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it

Prior to blow drying I use Kerastase Nectar Thermique to protect my hair from the heat. It also acts and a leave in conditioner too and smells delicious

You can't beat a hair oil to keep your hair moisturised and I alternate between two - Orofluido and Moroccan Oil. I've yet to decide which is my favourite, both are excellent and make a great job of smoothing and detangling damp hair before blow drying

That was the last of my Winter Saviours posts, you can find parts 1, 2 and 3 by clicking these links

  6. I am def going to try some of these. Just cannot sort my haircare at the minute. I am guilty of over colouring, but i leave blowdrying to the last minute and only ghd my fringe, the rest i plait. I cannot find an oil i like but actually have never tried either of those. I just find they make my hair greasy and not last very long. I am finding it has helped my hair lots to only wash it twice a week and dry shampoo for the rest. Looking forward to experimenting, thanks again for the tips xxxxx

    1. I only use oil on the mid lengths and ends, that's where it's dry so it seems to absorb the oil really easily xx
