Haircare Essentials

Hi everyone! What strange times we are living in – as always, beauty blogging is a welcome distraction and I hope you feel the same! Today I want to talk about some of my haircare essentials. Obviously, it goes without saying that regular trims are an important part of hair maintenance but here’s what I use in-between to keep my hair in the best condition possible! 

hair care essentials ouai olaplex silk pillowcase

The OUAI Repair shampoo and conditioner has been a staple in my routine for years now after originally receiving them through PR (see my first OUAI post here) and they make hair washing a dream! I’m a little sad as these ones in the picture have been discontinued and reformulated but apparently they have the same scent and are even better formula wise so I can't wait to try them too! Talking about scent, all OUAI hair products are on another level scent wise and it’s so long-lasting! I love it so much I also have a couple of their perfumes! Most importantly, the formula is lightweight, paraben and SLS free which is something else I always look for in shampoo! 

Once a week I will incorporate a treatment into my routine when I have time to let it work its magic. The only treatment I have ever repurchased is the Olaplex No3 Hair Perfector which is a pre shampoo treatment that I like to leave in my hair for 2-3 hours to see the best results. It works so well on my damaged ends and makes them a lot softer, hydrated and also makes my split ends more sealed and healthy looking!        

As a serial heat user, post hair wash is all about protectant for me! My favourites are the OUAI Leave in Conditioner and the Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother. The leave in conditioner like all OUAI products smells amazing and feels really lightweight while smoothing my hair, detangling and protecting it from heat styling. The Olaplex No 6 is a leave in crème formula suitable for dry or damp hair and is perfect for adding some heat protection as well as eliminating frizz, hydrating ends and helping hair to dry quicker! 

For the past couple of years I have been using a microfibre towel to dry my hair as it’s supposed to be better than a regular cotton towel to help with less breakage etc. This one is just a cheap gym towel from TK Maxx but it’s the perfect size for hair and absorbs quickly! My mum also got me a silk pillowcase a few years ago for Christmas and while it’s a little “extra” I love it, it promotes better skin and helps with wrinkles due to its smoother surface, feels so cooling and it also minimises hair static and my hair is less crazy looking in the morning and less greasy on wash days!

So that’s it for my hair care essentials! I’d love to know yours!
