Dry Hair Heroes

My hair is over coloured, heat styling ravaged and if the sun is shining I'm outside drying out any remaining moisture left in my wilting strands.
 I do however like to treat my hair regularly with intensive products to try and rectify the damage I have caused!
 Over the last few weeks I have been testing out different products so here is a run down of my faves.

Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Conditioner-200ml-£14.95

Rich, thick conditioner. Not much is needed to to coat hair and make it feel de-tangled and smooth during washing.
Containing Macadamia nut oil and Safflower to deeply nourish and hydrate the hair shaft.
This particular conditioner helps to brighten a dulling blonde hair. After I had dried my hair my boyfriend actually asked if I had been and had my hair highlighted again, and he is a boy who generally would never notice something like this!!
 Hair feels more manageable and smoother and it really did freshen my blonde.
 Definitely a product I would purchase again.

Liz Earle Botanical Shine treatment-150ml-£14.50 

I loved this treatment conditioner. It smells divine during washing and the scent lingers on your hair all day. Jam packed full of botanical ingredients including Blue sea kale (basically a sea cabbage). It lives in nutrient poor conditions (just like my hair) and will help to maintain your hair colour without dulling it down.
 Sumac wax which is used by Japanese sumo wrestlers to maintain their sleek hair helps to control frizz and manageability.
Cotton extract to protect hair and give it it's silky texture, orange, apple and Yangu oil extract to flatten the hair cuticle and Red algae to help build a barrier against dryness.
This conditioner is particularly good for course, frizzy hair. My hair tends to be a coarse texture underneath where I seem to get curly ringlets of frizz! This conditioner definitely smoothed the hair at it's frizziest parts.
Performs better when left on as more of a treatment. After shampooing I applied this through mid and ends and the gently combed through with a wide toothed comb. Left for 10 minutes and then washed off. My hair was mega shiny and felt light and swooshy! My hair never feels swooshy!
I would keep this one in your cupboard as an emergency deep conditioner when your hair has gone wild and needs to be shown who is boss!

Tommy Guns Jasmine, wild nettle and sweet almond oil conditioner-250ml-£5.50

I love the smell of Jasmine anyway so knew this would be a winner on scent alone.
 I really like the small plastic bottles also, they look pretty on my bathroom shelf..and that's important!
 This range is really affordable too which is great.
 This conditioner moisturises and soothes the scalp if you suffer from any irritation.
Sweet almond oil provides deep conditioning , wild nettle conditions and Jasmine leaves your hair smelling amazing. My hair felt really soft and shiny after washing although I did find it did seem to get greasier quicker than normal. Maybe I was using too much product.

These are three favourites at the moment. Have you found any great conditioners that work for your dry hair?



  1. Tati from GlamLifeGuru is always raving about the L'oreal total repair conditioning balm (in the black tub with yellow lid just in case I'm not remembering the name 100% correctly). I just picked it up and used it for the first time yesterday. Once again, Tati has recommended a fabulous product! I used it as my conditioner and left it on for about 4-5 minutes. My hair felt sooo smooth when rinsing it out. I have EXTREMELY oil hair so I tend to be very cautious with heavy balms/treatments like this but my hair looked and felt SO GOOD ALL DAY!! On a normal, day to day basis I use Pureology Hydrate (purple bottles) and it is the only shampoo and conditioner that prevents my hair from getting oily half way through the day. So I was incredibly impressed that this balm kept my hair in the oil-free state I've grown accustomed to. I will definitely be adding this to my weekly routine, I'm thinking just once a week will suffice as the last thing I want is to over do it and end up with a greasy mess by lunch time! I do get a full foil of bleach blonde done every 6-8 weeks and this balm really made my blonde highlights shine! I'm impressed with my first use and I highly suggest checking it!

  2. This sounds like a miracle to me!
    everyone check out my blog!!

  3. I love the Extreme conditioner from Redken! It makes my hair really soft and healthy

  4. Another to add to the list which I'm using here in Dubai because my hair has been super dry what with the heat an the air con is Philip B Lovin Leave in Conditioner... OMG its amazing xx Clare Elise

  5. Percy and Reed are amazing :) xx
