Everyday hair essentials

by ,

I’m a creature of habit and never more so when it comes to my hair. I tend to stick to products I love, a hairstyle that flatters and a ‘natural’ colour (albeit out of a bottle these days).

Not for me your fluffy-just-rolled-out-of-bed hair thank you very much. I want sleek, shiny and polished locks. To help me achieve a good hair day I rely on a couple of essential haircare staples.

Original Moroccanoil Treatment
I love this stuff and use it after every single wash. Infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil, the original treatment is designed to leave hair smooth and nourished. I have long, colour-treated hair which is thick yet can be oily at the roots and very dry at the ends. I apply the oil mainly to the ends although it doesn’t tend to make my hair greasy like other serums I’ve tried. The end result is always bouncy, shiny hair.

The original Moroccanoil is expensive but lasts forever – a drop or two is all I ever need. I’ve had my current bottle for at least a year at this stage. There are many argan oil imitators out there but I can’t imagine ever falling out of love with the original.

The Wet Brush
A good quality hair brush makes all the difference when it comes to styling my thick, unruly mop. I love the Wet Brush for its gentle detangling without damaging my hair. Developed originally for professionals, the Wet Brush is now widely available for us mere mortals to purchase.

As I have very long hair, I love how light the brush is and how gentle and flexible the bristles are. I also use this on my little girl who has wild, blonde curly hair (to my straight, black hair – I don’t know where I got her from!) and I haven’t had a single complaint or whimper from her. The brush is now a much-loved everyday haircare essential.

Have you tried either of these products?
