Top Five Tuesday: Hair Products I Can't Live Without


Hey everyone

I'm linking up with Rachel from @JustPeachy  as per, for the Hair Products I Can't Live Without this week :)


Now 
Then














As you can tell, I have been blessed with ridiculously curly hair but only in the last couple of years have I decided to fully embrace my natural curly-top state and quite killing my hair with my beloved GHDs. 

Luckily this means that I really don't have to do much to my hair to make it look presentable (yay! no more spending an hour burning straightening my hair every night :D ) and this means that the few products/things that I use to tame my curls are absolutely non-negotiable - I must have them otherwise I risk looking like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards #justsayin! 

So anyways, here we go, my top five...

1) John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Shampoo - seriously this is hands down the best shampoo for my hair (that I've found anyways). It completely cuts out the natural frizz that comes with having curly hair and it smells amazing!

 
2) John Frieda Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Strengthening Creme Masque (whatta mouthful!) - I use this as my conditioner because I've found that it really helps to strengthen my hair (I desperately need this as when I get stressed out my hair decides to fall out - not good.) and it makes my curls super springy :)

3) Water - seriously never underestimate the power of water. You can give me all the curl rejuvinating products in the world but nothing (in my opinion) beats water. I use a water sprayer every morning to wake up my curls and make them all nice and springy after I've been lying on them whilst asleep. Plus using water means that I avoid that horrible crunchy curl that some curling products make #yuck 

 4) Hair elastics - for when my hair is being stroppy and only a ponytail/bun will do. I always have multiple elastics about my person (in my pencil case, in my bag, in my labcoat pocket, round my wrist) because of all the lab work I do on my course :)


5) Wide Tooth Comb - Because I have crazy curly hair I can't really brush my hair when it's dry because this makes my hair go crazy - think a cross between Hermione in HP1 & Hagrid (yes, it's really that bad). So this means that I only comb my hair when it's wet (this isn't as gross as it sounds I promise because I do wash my hair at least once every couple of days, every day in the summer) and a wide tooth comb helps me to do this as painlessly as possible. I tried using a Tangle Teezer for a while - let's just say, never again (it hurt like crazy! I think my hair was just too curly for it :S)

Side note: I wasn't sponsored in any way by John Frieda do include these products - I really do just love them! I may or may not have another 6 products from this line, all bought with my own money :S

What are the hair products that you can't live without?

  1. Your hair is simply gorgeous when curly. How long is your hair?
    I have straight hair, though if I let it air dry it is wavy, and if I sleep on damp hair it will be curly the next day.
    Products I can't live without:
    * Tresemme heat protectant
    (though sometimes I like to use Got2b Crazy Sleek Hot Smooth Flat Iron & Blow Dry Lotion Reviews because I love the citrus smell, and it works great)

    * coconut oil (I put this on the ends of my hair when it's dry, or use as a deep conditioning treatment)

    * bobby pins

    * miniature elastics (I love to do side braids, and french braids)

    * velcro rollers (LOVE THESE! I always use large ones to give volume to my hair)

    1. Thank you :) my hair has eventually regrown back to being approx halfway down my upper arm - I'm so happy, it took so long to grow lol! I really want to try some sort of oil for the ends of my hair - I might try coconut oil now :)
