KEEPING OMBRE IN SHAPE.























This post has been a long time coming. I have been an ombré gal for a good year or so now, well professional ombré hehe. I'm not sure if I can count the bad at home ombré experiments as a proper hair do but since then I have been looking after my hair as best as I can. For this I have been looking at what I put on my hair more closely and certainly using more organic products that do the job just as well if not better.

To start I found the perfect purple shampoo! Something that I was told in the hairdressers to prolong my blonde ends without getting brassy or looking discoloured once the colour starts to fade. I have been using Lush Cosmetics Daddy O shampoo (£5.49, 100ml) which is a tasty smelling violet scented purple shampoo best suited to banish and counter act brassy tones. You don't need much shampoo to create a lovely lather in the shower and it rinses off leaving silky clean hair. With fresh citrus and seaweed your hair is guaranteed to look shiny and healthy. No baddies in this shampoo.

Next up is two gorgeous deep conditioning conditioners (sorry for the lack of words there hehe!). First is from organic brand A'kin and it is their Macadamia and Wheat Protein Treatment Conditoner (£10.00, 225g) c/o. This conditioner is perfect for treating split ends, coloured and damaged hair to get it back to healthy luscious locks. The scent is amazing as it is filled with west Australian Sandalwood and Macadamia nut oil. With it's exotic woody scent and thick texture, I use it twice a week focusing on my ombréd ends I massage it into damp hair and leave on for a few minutes. When I wash it off, my hair is sooooo smooth. It's incredible. As an added bonus the conditioner contains 2% Wheat Protein, which helps repair hair follicles therefore helping with unnecessary tangles and knots. I love this conditioner and for the price I don't think it's too bad at all. 

Another treatment that I did feature in my June favourites last month is from John Frieda Full Repair Hydrate + Repair Deep Conditioner (£6.99, 150ml) and my love for the product still stands strong. It's such an easy product to just pop in your weekly hair routine and it makes so much difference. Like the A'kin product, this deep conditioner helps battle dry ends and damaged hair. I think between the A'kins and this product, I see more of a difference in my hair with this product. It just leaves my hair that bit softer and lighter. Having fair hair, I do always worry about using products that are too heavy but this one isn't at all. It doesn't weigh my hair down just makes it extremely soft. 

My final two products are a must for me. Toni and Guy's heat protecting mist (£6.99, 150ml) is a must for me as even when my hair dries naturally in the heat of the sun, it still needs protecting. I like this mist especially as it doesn't weigh down my hair as it is such a fine product. It also smells lovely which is always a bonus for me. My final newbie is Kahina Argan Oil (£74.00,100ml) c/o. This gorgeous but very expensive Argan Oil is rich in vitamin e and antioxidants, oh goodness is it good for you're hair. It helps dryness and nourishes your hair no problemo. 

All together these product give your hair the added nutrition that if your hair is highly coloured and damaged like mine, it's worth investing in some great products. What are your hair hero's?

  1. The A'kin conditioner sounds really lovely! I'm always intrigued by the Full Repair range too, but my hair has actually been in pretty decent conditioner recently for once!

  2. My favourite haircare product at the moment is John Frieda's Frizz-ease. I have naturally frizzy hair and this works great on me and helps keep my hair tangle-free.
