I’ve been recently asked a lot about hair care tips, hair growth and my hair in general, so I thought it’s about time to share with you my secrets how I maintain my long hair. I’ve also written a post in the past about how to grow your hair when it’s shorter. You can read it here

I like my hair most when it's natural-wavy

My natural hair colour is a medium brown and I like to lighten it up with lots of warm highlights. Because of the bleach and my thick, wavy hair texture, my hair is always very dry. So I’ve tried and tested lots of hair care products for dry hair to maintain its health. Here are my current favourites:

What I'm using on my hair when it's dry

What I’m using on my hair when it’s dry

These are my goodies from Germany- if you’re not from Germany you might find these on the internet. The pink bottle contains a moisturising treatment which is all natural and organic, with aloe vera and hibiscus. I spray it into my hair whenever it fells dry or just to give my hair a nice smell and to freshen it up throughout the day. Also from the organic brand Alverde is the moisturising butter in the front which contains avocado. I use this especially in winter when the spray treatment is just not quite moisturising enough-this definitely is ;)The clear bottle in the middle contains nettle water which I every once in a while to massage my scalp. If you want to grow your hair a good scalp massage is very important because the health of your hair starts with the roots! Last but not least the good old coconut oil which you can find in almost every supermarket. It’s perfect to moisturise your dry ends, it’s all natural, makes your hair look super shiny and smells aaamazing. I also use this as a deep conditioning hair mask every now and then.

These are more international products. I use them under the shower- oops, not the phyto 7 cream though 😉 This one is just another awesome leave-in treatment for the hair, contains 7 different plant extracts and acts as a daily moisturiser- I couldn’t live without it! Eco Awesome by TIGI is my favourite shampoo. It’s a moisturising shampoo with white tea and without any sulfates. When you want to grow your hair you must make sure that there are no sulfates in your shampoos because they are very harsh on your hair. The small bottle in the middle combined with the bottle on the right are my favourite conditioners: Tommy Guns Jasmine, wild nettle & sweet almond conditioner smells amazing and is perfect for thirsty and coloured hair. Another favourite is the Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor for damaged hair which contains aloe vera and mint and smells just like bubble gum- I love it! In the front you can see my favourite hair masks: The rainforest moisture butter by the bodyshop is all natural and leaves my hair feeling super soft and silky. The phytocitrus mask by Phyto is a great favourite because it contains proteins that help strengthen and rebuild brittle, dry and coloured hair.

phew this was a lot! Are you using any of these products and do you like them?  If  you want me to do an in-depth review of any of these products, please let me know 🙂

Today was a good day! Not only was it my sister’s birthday, also the sun was shining, the weather was lovely and I received a lovely package from a great, new hair care range: Four reasons.

Usually, I would test a product several days before I write a review, but today, I was so excited that I decided to tell you my first thoughts about these products now.

The first thing that struck me was the lovely packaging- it’s really funny- just look at it! 😀

Besides this, I have lots of high-and low-lights, so my hair always needs some TLC. Therefore, I was very excited to try the Four reasons repair shampoo and conditioner. The smell of the two products reminded me of Garnier Fructies. It’s a fresh, clean and fruity smell which I really like. I had some worries that the shampoo might be too drying because of the fact that Sodium Laureth Sulfate are a bit high in the ingredients list, but fortunately it wasn’t trying at all on my hair. It lathered really well and removed all the dirt while being super gentle to my hair.

The Conditioner was very moisturizing and it says on the label that it will even rebuild over processed hair – sounds great! I will definitely tell you if it does that job after I’ve used it a couple of weeks.

Moving on to the next two products: I used the heat styler today on a friend who straightened her hair and it did a good job in protecting her hair and left it super silky – what more do you want?

Nevertheless, my absolute hero product is the For Reasons cream mousse.  It’s a lightweight, non-sticky mousse which is just perfect for relaxing thick, frizzy or curly hair. My hair is very thick and I always have to fight with frizz. I used it today and was absolutely impressed – it defined my waves, got rid of the frizz and on top of that, it’s moisturising as well. Priced at only £5.95, I think this is going to be a new staple in my hair routine!
