On my last post I got some lovely comments about my hair and I realised that I haven't yet blogged about my hair care routine! As most of you will know, I really only buy things that I can afford with my student budget (although, I'll admit on occasion I'll treat myself to a designer brand product!). These 6 products are the only things I use to look after my hair - I've found these all to be great products that I've used for at least the past year.

   I thought I'd just point out to start off this post that I wash my hair about 3 times a week on average. I find this is all my hair needs and there's no point putting my poor, bleached hair through any more exposure to heat / chemicals than it needs! I also never use straighteners on my hair unless I need to. This helps the ends to stay in relatively good condition, as I'm a bit hairdresser-phobic and very rarely get my hair cut... tut tut.. I know!

   Of course, the first two products are a shampoo and conditioner. I've used Tresseme Colour Fade Protection (renamed to Colour Revitalising?!) for probably around 4 years now - I find it conditions my bleached hair just the right amount so that it's not straw-like but not stretchy either (if you know what I mean?!). The 900ml bottles last forever! I think my last lot took me over 6 months to get through! I normally buy these in when they're on offer, but they're only £4.69 each at Tesco without any offer, pretty darn amazing for more than half a years worth of product! 

   I also mix in a small amount of the Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Twice a Week Brightening Shampoo (phew!) when I shampoo my hair. Probably twice a fortnight I'll shampoo with just this to reduce brassiness. They sell this for £2.50 at my local Factory Shop, but I used to buy it on Amazon for a similar price. It lasts me about 3 or 4 months.

   Onto post-wash care. I guess the most important thing for anyone these days is heat protection spray. I've used Tresseme Heat Defence Spray for about 2 years now - this is the bottle I bought two years ago and it's still going despite using about 4 sprays each time I wash my hair. I still have about a third of the bottle left! I use it when my hair is damp. It's suitable for use with GHDs as it protects against heat up to 230 degrees (I've found this important to check if you use high heat straighteners / curlers, as some only protect up to 180 degrees etc). This retails at £4.69 (300ml) at Tesco and Superdrug.

   I also use this Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Spray. It's not the best leave in conditioning spray I've come across, but it's still a great product. It does make my hair more manageable. It's also lasted me a long time, after a years use I have a third still left. I spritz 4 pumps of this into my hair after using the Heat Defence Spray. This retails at £4.49 (250ml) at Superdrug.

   Finally, I use Moroccan oil on the lengths and ends of my hair about once or twice a week max. I apply a couple of drops after using the sprays, then I'll leave my hair to dry off in a towel for half an hour or so before finishing it off with a hairdryer. As you can tell, it's a bit of a messy product, but it works a dream! You'll also notice it's not the real deal, well, not the 'real' Moroccan Oil brand! I spotted this in T K Maxx for £9.99 (120ml) - saving a bucket load on the branded oil! It's by Monica Olsen and I'd really recommend it. I've seen a few other lesser known brands' versions of Moroccan oil in TK Maxx too, so before you fork out on the real deal have a look in there to see if you can find any bargains. This has lasted me probably nearly two years now too and I have more than half left.

   Well, this has turned into a rather long post... I hope it's not too overwhelming! If you have any other questions about any of the products or anything else to do with my hair feel free to contact me here or on twitter (@RobynMayday), I'll be more than happy to answer!


  1. Is the Tresemme heat defense any good? I've been searching for a good one that doesn't leave the hair heavy x

    1. Yes! It doesn't weigh my hair down at all - I just use it sparingly. I'd really recommend all of the products in the post :)! xx

  2. I love Tresemme heat defence, thought I tend to get product build up on my scalp after a bit so I have to give myself breaks from it. The Touch of Silver shampoo is fantastic too x

    1. Oh I've never had that problem! I just spray mine onto my lengths / ends so maybe that's why I don't have that? I guess my hair might absorb it more too maybe! It is great isn't it - such a bargain!xx

  3. Tresemme seems a good product from your reviews.I am using L'Oreal ,it is not that much effective.So shall i change it to Tresemme.

  4. I’m just commenting to let you know what a great discovery my cousin’s child obtained reading the blog. She noticed lots of things, which included how it is like to possess an amazing teaching character to get other folks effortlessly learn selected impossible topics. You undoubtedly exceeded readers’ expected results. Thank you for rendering such beneficial, safe, educational and even fun guidance on your topic to Lizeth. how to grow hair fast

  5. There are incredibly a lot of details like this to take into consideration. Which is a great point to raise up. I provide thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly you can find questions such as one you start up the place that the most crucial thing is going to be getting work done in honest very good faith. I don?t determine if guidelines have emerged around stuff like that, but I am certain that the job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls have the impact of only a moment’s pleasure, through-out their lives. hair cuttery near me
