As much as my eyes are always pealed for that one product that will solve every hair woe, I have acquired a few haircare staples. Despite not using much heat, having fine hair means there's always some form of battle with dry, frizzy or damaged ends. Aussie's Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner has been my favorite for a couple of years now. Containing Macadamia Nut Oil, it leaves my hair clean and nourished without weighing it down. Despite trying many other shampoo and conditioners, many more expensive, I always come back to this, it just works so well with my hair (though I do have my eye on the L'oreal Ever Riche collection!).
For days when my hair needs a little bit more nourishment but I don't have the time for indulging in a deep treatment hair mask, I use the Dove Damage Solutions Intensive Repair Express Treatment Conditioner instead of my Aussie conditioner. Richer than a normal conditioner yet gentle enough to be used daily, this treatment works quickly whilst leaving hair feeling soft and healthy (and smelling amazing!). I've also used the Nourishing Oil Care version of this and find they work equally well.
After washing my hair I then apply either Kerastase Nutrive Nectar Thermique or Redken Extreme Anti-snap to protect against any heat styling. I can't decide which one I prefer so tend to alternate between them, though I would say the Kerastase is slightly more nourishing for dry hair.
The newest addiction to my routine is the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-in Conditioning & Care Spray. Like all of the Dove range this smells amazing and works wonderfully, especially considering the low price. I spritz this all over my damp hair (avoiding the roots) for a little bit extra nourishment that doesn't weigh my hair down. It leaves my hair silky and banishes the majority of the frizz. I also use this on dry hair if it needs a little boost. As it's completely weightless it doesn't leave it at all sticky but restores moisture and adds shine.
To help reduce damage I religiously use my Tangle Teezer on both wet and dry hair before and after washing. This helps to get rid of any tangles without pain or damaging the hair as much as regular brushes can. I also have the compact version of this in my handbag for when i'm out and about. It glides through my hair easily and doesn't seem to yank too many strands out!
