My Hair Routine

Post date: Tuesday 24 September 2013

One fateful day in 2009, I grew bored of my long, poker-straight hair and begged my hair dresser to do whatever it took to breathe some life in to it. However as soon as the final snippet of hair floated to the floor, I regretted my decision. Sure, thanks to my new layers I became the proud owner of beautiful curls and waves, but they came at a price... I was now also the not-so-proud owner of a rather offensive bob-cut. 
It may have taken four painstakingly long years, but I have finally managed to grow it back out to its original length, whilst maintaining it's new-found texture.
 Me and my hair have been on quite a journey over the past few years and I have learnt a lot about how to care for it from the many tellings off I received from my hairdresser, but I have finally got myself in to a routine that leaves my hair healthy and happy; so here it is!

I wash my hair everyday; I know people say that you're not supposed to do that but the only way I could avoid getting my hair wet in the shower would be to wear a shower cap, the thought of which makes me shiver. I condition my hair everyday but only shampoo it every other day, because shampoos strip the natural oils from your hair and can leave it feeling dry. 

I then use a wide-toothed comb to untangle the nest. I never brush my hair because if I did, I would look like the sixth member of the Jackson 5.

I got this Phil Smith Argan Oil free with an issue of Cosmopolitan and have found it to be quite nourishing for my hair. I gently rub a little bit through the ends of my hair and it helps them appear less dry.

 My Trevor Sorbie Curl Cream is by far my favourite hair product, not least because of it's amazing scent. I rub a generous amount through my lengths and ends before scrunching and twirling sections of my hair to help enhance its natural texture.

Once it dries, it looks like this... Perhaps not the Tumblr-worthy beachy waves I always dreamed of, but certainly a lot better than the bob of 2009.

    Just recently I actually cut my hair, and it was fairly long. I don't regret the cut though. It's a nice change!
