Best Products of 2010: Hair

I bought a few products this summer that have really changed how my hair looks and feels: superclean ( I think thanks to the sulphate free shampoo), shiny (thanks to the new hair dryer, I think), smooth (thanks to the new conditioner, I guess) and much less frizzy (thanks to a combination of all of the above, maybe?).

And that’s simply why I’ve chosen them for this entry.

So here’s what has changed my hair:

Samy Pure Shampoo and Samy gel for curly hair

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Luscious Long

This is probably the conditioner with the greatest smell I’ve ever had. Leaves you hair super soft and smooth…

 

Babyliss ProSpeed drier with diffuser

Noisy but effective

Of course none of this would work if I didn’t treat my scalp properly ( I have very sensitive scalp and if I don’t use an appropriate shampoo for this my scalp goes out of whack easily).

This year I started using the Korres Shampoo for sensitive scalp which has proved amazing.

 

Korres Shampoo with Laurel & Echinacea for dandruff and sensitive/dry scalp

So basically (and as crazy as it is) I must admit that my hair routine consists on:

1.  wash with Korres shampoo-wash away

2.  wash with Samy shampoo-wash away

3. Aussie 3 minute miracle conditioner (3-5 min)-wash and don’t rinse off completely

4. good amount of  Tressemme  mousse for curly hair

5. Tressemme mist to protect hair from heat

6. Dry hair

7. Finish off with a dollop of Samy gel for curly hair…

…and that’s why I’m always late the days I wash my hair…

Is your hair routine as crazy as this?

Gone Baby Gone-Part I

It’s not very often (actually it is VERY rare) that I happened to finish a product. Most often than not I get bored with things and moved to the next one before I finish something.

That’s why whenever I DO finish something I feel it must be that the  product either stands out for whatever reason or it’s really something I use daily or both.

So for the past few months instead of throwing away the empty stuff  I’ve been finishing up  I decided to keep it with the purpose of showing them in a post and sharing them with you.

So here they are:

Gone, gone gone!

One by one:

Neutrogena's Deep Clean range

These have been great this past summer. The wipes are moist and get the dirt away leaving your skin fresh and moist. The scrub is very good too. I used it everyday  in the shower and has that minty/fresh feel that I love in a scrub. I saw both being recommended in Youtube by girls with flawless skin and when I saw it in Boots I thought I’d try it. Great choice! It didn’t erase the flaws from my skin but it left it clean and fresh.

Tresseme mousse Curl Defining

I’ve talk about this one before. I like how it leaves my curls (well, defined, yes) when I need to blow dry my hair (which now is almost every time I wash it because otherwise it takes ages to dry…).

Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle

This was recommended by a good friend. And I’m not sure about miracles but this conditioner surely leaves my hair supersmooth and silky the way no other does. The next one I will try is the one for frizzy hair. If you haven’t tried it you should definitely give it a go. Look for the 2 for £6 offers in Boots or Superdrug (which run quite often).

More to come tomorrow.
