Just when I think how amazing my hair is now I don’t have to style and wash it everyday (thanks to working from home), I have an entire week away and my hair plays up like a mischievous child! After two days of heat from the straighteners, my hair had decided enough was enough, it wasn’t playing anymore and it basically gave up. Thankfully, I had many products on hand during my week away and now I’m back, I can truly slather my hair in all the goodness below. I’ve been using the products the odd couple times, but clearly not enough to combat my unruly hair. This post will not only contain treatments that you can use once a week (or more if you have the time) but it also contains quick fixes which are essential when travelling.
Dr Paw Paw Balm at £6.95 for 25ml
One of my all times favourite products is this multipurpose balm from Dr Paw Paw, you seriously cannot underestimate a good balm and this one can do everything. From brows to flyaway hairs and flakey skin that refuses makeup, it’s got you covered. I cannot say enough good things about it and I want to cry whenever I run out. It’s so rare that I get to the end of a product as I’m always trying new things out, so it’s a strong sign of how much I really love something. Perfect for a quick fix, keeping hair in place, helping curls and just overall going above and beyond of a normal balm.
Amla Hair Remedy at £27.00 for 100ml
This is a super nourishing blend of 5 super oils to help improve the condition your hair and strengthen it from deep within. With the oils being Amla, Coconut, Avocado, Argan and Lemon Essential Oil, you can easily see how these are going to be great together already. Perks of this product include promoting growths and helping lock in that luxurious shine. This oil really feels like something else, normally I find oils on my scalp so difficult to massage in, but this almost feelings as if it’s foaming (it isn’t), it’s just a weird but beautiful feeling of that you know it’s going a lot further than you thought it would. I like that in a product. Amla stimulates growth as well as nourishing it by helping the strength of your hair, it’s also great for cleansing the scalp of any buildup and keeping it moisturised to prevent dandruff. Amla even contains antioxidants which claim to prevent the hair from premature greying, sounds impressive but I obviously cannot vouch for that.
You simply massage this into dry hair and leave on for as long as you want, but a minimum of 30 minutes is recommended. I like to leave it on overnight like most of my hair treatments! You can even use a couple drops on the ends of your hair before styling, I do love a multipurpose product.
Maya at £4 for 55ml
A brand new, confident curling and styling crème, which has a unique blend of 12 natural oils and extracts. You can use Maya however you like, on dry, wet, damp hair, just through the ends or a little all over. Before styling with heat or before leaving your hair to dry naturally, you can even use it to style your hair by crunching the product in to help curls! Now that’s an impressive list, right? The ingredients inside even mean that this product is perfect to help combat dryness, lack of moisture, frizz and to prevent flat curls. The 12 natural oils and extracts are:
- Shea Butter
- Flame Tree Extract
- Tomato Oil
- Carrot Oil
- Olive Oil
- Argan Oil
- Marula Seed Oil
- Baobab Oil
- Cedar Wood Bark Oil
- Soybean Oil
- Rice Extract
- Radish Root Extract
Quite a list! It smells amazing but be warned, it’s A LOT thicker than you’d ever imagine, so really go sparingly with it until you’ve figured out the best amount for your hair.
Everybody loves coconut and everyone knows how fantastic it is for your hair, taking advantage of both is Lee Stafford. Two amazing products for quick fixes with potentially long term benefits, what’s better? First up is the spritz which looks like a milky creamy spray, but it’s actually an oil which helps to nourish and repair damaged hair. It can also be used to help detangle, smooth and boost shine! The balm is a little more heavy duty as it provides a heavier moisture boost and a little goes a long way. You can apply either product on wet, damp or dry hair. My personal favourite is damp and then if my hair is playing up, I’ll apply it again on dry and styled hair to smooth everything over. A final perk is that your hair then smells of coconuts!
COCO Hair at £14.99 for 100ml
More coconut! But this coconut product comes with a money back guarantee if you’re not happy, which usually means you’re going to love it SO much and I do. It’s a complete blend of 100% natural ingredients which reduces fizz and helps dry hair with the coconoil inside. It’s best used as a mask and you’ll need 2-4 pumps deciding on your hair or how excessive you are, I use LOADS. Cover absolutely everything from the root, right to the tip and then leave for a minimum of 20 minutes before washing out. You’ll see the difference straight away. Use it as often as you physically can, every time you use your conditioner is recommend to reverse the damage of really damaged hair.
