Hair Care

This post goes hand in hand with my last post I did when I was transitioning to brown hair and then going back to blonde. During this process I experienced breakage and my hair became really dry while slowly going back to blonde. For those who have experienced this type of transition before you know how devastating it is..

 Taking care of your hair is extremely important and depending on the texture of your hair whether it's colour treated, curly, thick, coarse etc. You want to make sure that you are using the right products for your hair type.

When I was experiencing breakage and dryness I took EXTRA care of my hair by using absolutely no heat on my hair for the first couple of months and did a lot of hair conditioning treatments. To this day I still don't blow dry my hair when it's wet. I let it air dry and then once dried I will then round brush my hair, curl it, straighten it etc. I am so used to doing this that when I go to the salon to get my hair done I literally leave there with wet hair {Call me obsessive I don't care}. Honestly though I have seen a HUGE difference in my hair by doing this and as we all know heat is not good for our hair period!
Now on to my current hair care products:

Pureology Hydrate Shampoo
It's sulfate-free, salt-free, has an AntiFadeComplex that won't strip colour. This shampoo is really moisturizing especially if you have dry hair and it doesn't weigh my hair down which is great.

 L'Oreal Professionnel Silver Shampoo
Now if you are a blonde you know that using a purple shampoo is a definite must! {No one likes brassy hair}. I use this about twice a week and let it sit on my hair for about 10- 15 minutes. This is the only purple/blue shampoo I have tried that "actually" works for me. I know there is another L'Oreal purple shampoo called "Shine Blonde" and that one didn't work as good as the L'Oreal Silver.

L'Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Conditioning Masque
This stuff is amazing when your hair is feeling dry. I use this once a week and leave it on for 3-5 minutes. I love using this when I first get my hair done it just makes my hair so soft and the smell is incredible.

Sfactor Serious Conditioner with Sunflower Seed Oil
This is more of an everyday conditioner. It leaves your hair silky and soft. {Sometimes I will even leave this on my hair for 20-30 minutes}

Macadamia Deep Repair Masque
This stuff my friends is hands down my favorite conditioning masque of all time. I use this once a week and leave it on my hair for 20-40 minutes and sometimes even an hour while I am cleaning the house or watching TV. Your hair will feel amazing after using this and the smell is out of this world!!! I seriously couldn't live without this stuff..

Sfactor Heat Protectant
{UV Protection & Thermal Shield}
You can put this on wet or dry hair but I usually put this on wet hair before styling.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment
I put a little bit of this into the balm of my hands and apply it to my hair once it's completely dried and before I have styled it to give my hair extra protection and shine. I also put a little bit more on my hair once my hair is completely styled.

Dove Dry Shampoo
{I am not the biggest fan of dry shampoo but this stuff is pretty good}
I apply it to the roots of my hair on the day's I don't wash it

I like to switch up my shampoo's every time I am done a bottle so my hair doesn't get use to the same product and plus I enjoy trying something new. I don't usually buy any other conditioners then what I have because these conditioners are absolutely amazing in my eyes and because I switch between the three of them my conditioners will last a pretty long time..{Note} If I didn't go through my bad experience with breakage and dryness I wouldn't have all these conditioners. Once my hair is completely healthy then I will probably only have one or two of them!

 What are your favorite hair care products? 
I am always looking for something new to try

Hope you all have a lovely day...

  5. I've been looking to get some sort of conditioner that I can use to soften and moisturize my hair. The winter months have really left my hair feeling dry. Do you recommend the Loreal Masque or Sfactor Conditioner, if I had to choose one?

    1. The L'Oreal masque hands down! It's less expensive and you get more as well! The only thing is, is you can't use it all the time (once or twice a week) because there is a lot of protein in it. The Sfactor is more of an everyday conditioner so it depends?! But I love the L'Oreal it's great for dry hair!!


  6. When I was coloring my hair I used Pureology. A little expensive for me but it was SO worth it. I love that stuff.
