Hair Products I’m Loving ATM (Jan 2013)

Heyyy guys

I am obsessed with hair products and I would say I go through my hair products fairly quickly, and I have tried and tested MANYYYYY from high end to high street (Drugstore)

Here are my current favourites:

Hair Product MDR

1) Pure Coconut Oil by Inecto:

Inecto pure coconut oil

125ml which is a good amount, I got mine for £1:75 from a local Chemist which is very cheap, yayyy, and its made from Pure Coconut Oil which is fab, it smells soooo yummy, it’s meant to detangle, nourish and moisturise, and it does just that, it’s so hydrating and since I don’t use a conditioner in the bath, I rely on a great leave in one, and this is the best I have seen so far, and it works as a great detangler even when your hair isn’t damp. It comes with a pump and comes out quite runny but it doesn’t give out so much product in one pump which is great and I spray pump straight into my damp hair and comb through.

2) [Urban Therapy] twisted sista de-Frizz conditioner:

Twisted Sista de-frizz conditioner

The one I got was 200ml, I got mine for £1.99 from Bodycare.I used to get the serum version which is the clear one, it smelt strongly of watermelons which I hated and it was so small and cost a lot, but then I found this one, which is much better, it’s the cream version, the only downfall is that the other one came with a pump, but I don’t mind too much. I use this at the very ends of my hair, just the tips and use it more like a nourishing cream, it works really great since my hair ends are dryer than the rest of it. This is great as you don’t even need to use that much, I use two pea sized drops and that’s enough for the ends and I have pretty thick dense hair. It’s supposed to calm, sooth, detangle, take away frizz and make your hair ready to style. The one thing that’s really noticeable is that it makes your hair so smooth and silky after using it and definitely makes combing easier.

3) Gliss Hair repair for brittle dull hair:

I got mine for £1.99 from Superdrug, I really love the Gliss range, especially the toner and hair repair spray, not because they work great, but they leave my hair spelling sooo nice, the come in spray bottles, for ease of application, they don’t really do anything for my hair, not that I’ve noticed, but I am totally and utterly in love with the fragrance!!!! The one I am mentioning is actually a leave in conditioner, it does make your hair shiny though, but I already have glossy hair and just prefer the non shiny matte hair =D Shiny black hair tends to look grease =( *sigh*

4) Loreal Elvive Damage Care:

Its a spray version and it contains ceramide which is supposed to seal damaged hair, it smells sooo nice, I love it, certainly does not feel heavy on the hair, the lightweight feeling means you can use a lot of product but feel like you’re barely wearing anything. This one is more difficult to find, but worth trying out. Especially if you use a lot of heat on our hair.

So they are my current favourites, I am looking into a new oil for my hair, currently I’m using Johnsons baby oil/Wilko made baby oil in Aloe Vera, I love the wilko one, it smells soo nice a little bit more thicker than the Johnsons and smells nicer, works real good. I’m looking into Moroccan Oil atm, but it’s sooo darn expensive, let me know if it’s worth it if you’ve tried it out, I;ve heard mixed reviews on that one.

Well that’s all for now, hope you liked this, let me know if you want more hair product reviews,

Dry Skin? Find the Perfect Moisturiser: Top 5

It’s been a long time since I blogged, but I thought that I should get a move on with this section (Hooray)

Since Winter is only round the corner, we need to prepare for the harsh wind that may dry up our skins natural moisture, I will be mentioning a few products that have worked for me.

All of the products mentioned are my favourites, but I will list them from my least favourite to my most favourite…out of all my favourites, I hope that wasn’t too difficult to understand!

Number 5) Aveeno

Aveeno

Aveeno

Aveeno is a Moisturising Cream made with Colloidal Oatmeal, made for dry/sensitive skin, it feels cool on the skin without feeling oily like most moisturisers tend to. It also helps to retain natural moisturising oils in your skin.

Cost: Around £4.50 (can be more expensive, depending on where you buy this product)
Available from: Boots, Superdrugs, Sainsburys and their website http://www.aveeno.co.uk

Number 4) Body Butter

Body Butter

Body Butter

Cotten Tree Body Butter is made out of cocoa. It is supposed to Hydrate, Moisturise and leave the skin feeling smooth. I really like this product, it smells good and does make the skin feel smooth, the only downfall is that when you first apply the product it leaves the skin feeling a little bit sticky and I hate that feeling.

Cost: Ranges from £4 – £13
Available from: http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk

Number 3) Dove Rich Nourishment Cream

Dove Rich Nourishment

Dove Rich Nourishment

The Dove Rich Nourishment cream is great. It leaves my skin soft and smooth. However, it was less sticky than the Body Butter, but it does not look oily on the skin, especially if you use a little, I tend to just use this on my face, but it’s been created to use all over the body.

Cost: Ranges from £1.25 – £3.00
Available from: http://www.wilkinsonplus.com, Sainsbury

Number 2) Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser

Nivea Rich Nourishing

Nivea Rich Nourishing

The Nivea Rich Nourishing Body Moisturiser has been specifically tailored for people with dry skin. This product contains Almond oil, which is supposed to intensively moisturise your dry skin. The product specifies that it restores and replenishes lost moisture, enhances the skins natural protective layer, promotes a non stop moisture supply. It claims to last 24hrs+, which is absolutely brilliant. I only use this cream at night-time and it leaves my skin feeling cool and smooth and I wake up with great feeling soft skin.

Cost: Ranges from £3.50 – £4.50
Available from: Boots

Number 1) Dove Silky Nourishment Cream

Dove Silky

Dove Silky

The Dove Silky Nourishment body Cream is my most favourite it leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft like a babies bottom! I’m glad they used the word ‘Silky’ in their product name, because that’s exactly how your skin feels after you use it, it contains essential oils to deeply nourish your skin. I found that it works best when used straight after a shower, it feels great, it’s a must have for people with dry skin!!! You won’t know how brill it is, until you’ve tried it! A similar product is the Nivea Soft/Refreshingly soft cream, but I prefer the Dove as it smells much better!!!

Cost: £3.00 – £5.00
Available from: Superdrug
