My Haircare Essentials

Tuesday, 12 September 2017


I really don't do a lot with my hair. I'm completely crap at any kind of styling, hate washing it with a passion due to the fact it's so thick and nearly always have it tied up in a messy ponytail or bun out of the way. However, my hair is still really healthy and I do look after it. Here are the things that my weave could not live without.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo & Conditioner with Coconut Milk

I freaking love this Garnier combo! I picked it up on a whim because it was on offer in Boots and I'm so glad that I did. I've always been an Aussie Miracle Moist girl for as long as I can remember - but this Garnier Ultimate Blends with Coconut Milk makes my hair feel so soft, so shiny and takes about three days before it feels really greasy, which is a nice change. It's official name is the "wholesome nourisher" which is exactly what this does to your hair; it makes it feel pampered and nourished and leaves it feeling so clean. Both the shampoo and conditioner work really well together although I will say this - the conditioner is exceptionally heavy so a little definitely goes a long way! This stuff also smells amazing due to the coconut milk. I really recommend this to anyone with hair like mine.




Coconut Oil*

My hair gets super greasy really quickly so when someone suggested using coconut oil in my hair, I was really sceptical. However, I recently got send some from Chemist.co.uk and I was really pleased with how it made my hair feel. I just warmed it up in my hands and ran it through the ends of my hair while it was wet and let it dry naturally and the effect was insane. I've never felt my hair feel better. Coconut oil not only makes your hair feel nice, but it's also really good at keeping your hair healthy. Since I use heat on my hair quite a lot, keeping it healthy is really important to me as I don't want it all falling out - I have no idea how much a hair transplant costs but I have a feeling that it's not cheap! But something that is cheap is coconut oil, so there really aren't any negatives of using it. 

Argan Oil*

Chemist.co.uk also gifted me some Argan Oil, which was extremely generous of them. I'd never used this on my hair either due to the whole oil thing but again, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this out for the first time. It keeps my hair so soft and healthy, and I use it in the same way that I use the coconut oil. I usually alternate between the two when I wash my hair as I don't want my hair getting used to one oil and then not benefitting from it. I really love using oils in my hair now and I'm so glad that Chemist.co.uk sent me these goodies to try as I never would have bought them myself!



BabyLiss Ceramic Pro 230 Straighteners 

Johnny bought me these straighteners for my birthday and I really can't fault them. My hair is naturally very wavy and thick but I prefer the look of it when it's straight, so when I have the time, I always straighten my hair in the mornings. These straighteners do the job really well as well as being really aesthetically pleasing for someone who adores the combo of blush pink and black like me! These straighteners have heat settings up to 240 degrees, heat up really quickly and also cool down really quickly. I use them mostly to straighten my hair but sometimes, if I'm off somewhere really special I'll curl it using these - and the appropriate heat protectant on my hair as well which is very important. If you're looking for some basic but really effective straighteners that won't break the bank, I really recommend these! 

As I said, I'm no expert in haircare but these are just the things I use to keep my hair super healthy and happy. Honourable mentions also go out to my TangleTeezer and my hairdryer, those things are also a complete godsend!

    1. You should! Coconut oil especially is so cheap as well so for £2 you might as well give it a try!

  4. What stunning photos, Chloe! I'm terrible at styling hair, it's something that (as a so called adult) I feel I should be able to do but alas, I'm hopeless! Your Babyliss straighteners sound like a winner though! I've never tried an argan oil for my hair but I'm super tempted now!
