Hair Products - What I've Been Using Lately ♥

I've been using a lot of different products on my hair recently so I just wanted to give you all a round-up of some products which I highly recommend and which have had a great impact on my hair and which are great for styling. It seems like I'm always trying out new shampoos and conditioners and I'm generally lucky with them as they seem to work for my hair but one shampoo and conditioner which I've been using recently and really love are Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo gives the hair a deep clean and helps to fortify the hair leaving a soft finish and hair ready to be conditioned. The conditioner is really creamy and moisturises the hair from within leaving it soft to the touch and perfectly detangled ready to come through. I really do love these products. My hair is in great condition after using them thanks to their strength cure system which strengthens hair from the inside and reversing the effects of micro-scarring caused by permanent hair colours.

A styling product which I've been using a lot is L'Oreal Professionnel Wild Stylers by Techni.ART Next Day Hair. This basically is a texturising powder which works in the same way as a dry shampoo. I always wear my hair down and spraying this on the mid-lengths of my hair and brushing through with my fingers whilst giving it a bit of a fluffing makes for tousled, grunge looking hair which I love. It gives that messy bed head style and lots of texture with minimal effort so it's the perfect product for someone like me who doesn't get a lot of time to do their hair in the mornings! Next Day Hair is €17.85 and is great value as I began using my can over a month ago and it's still going strong.
Another styling product which I've been using lately is Shu Uemura Detail Master, a directional fixing spray which gives hold and great shine. This product is great for creating those sleek, shiny, low ponytails which are always seen on the catwalks and I use it to create a one shoulder sweep, holding my hair close to one side of my head and letting it flow over one shoulder - such a pretty look for summer with some floral hair accessories by the way! It acts like a hairspray but it's a liquid spray. The hold in this is great and it gives a hardened effect to the hair to keep it in place, the shine is fab too. Detail Master is €27 and again is great value as it'll last for ages.

 I'm a big fan of Kerastase products and have featured them on the blog before and now that my Pureology shampoo is gone I'm using their Bain Densite bodyfying shamoo. This shampoo smells divine, something I've found in all Kerastase products I've tried and it gives amazing body to the hair. It's made my hair look and feel much healthier since I began using it. After I shampoo my hair I've been using Kerastase's Densimorphose densifying mousse which thickens the hair giving great volume after blow-drying. My hair always seems to look a bit limp but Densimorphose has really given it a boost and I love the volume it's injecting into my hair. Bain Densite is €19 and Densimorphose is €23.50. I highly recommend these products as the quality is amazing and the results speak for themselves, also the smell of the Bain Densite is gorgeous, I'd actually buy it for that alone.

There you have it, my hair recommendations at the moment. I really do love these products and actually enjoy using them on my hair. My hair has been looking sleek, shiny and volumised since I began using these products in turn. Have you used any products from the above mentioned? Did you like them as much as I did?

Stay pretty people!
