Current Favourites: Products For Dry Hair

the best affordable products for dry hair

I don't go to the hairdressers all that often (once a year, if that!) so I try to look after my hair myself and make sure that I keep it in good condition. I used to dye it a lot, using ash blonde shades to lighten my jet black hair. The brightest is will go is ginger! It went brassy so I dyed it to a chocolate brown (which only shows when the light hits it). 

Every now and then, I have the urge to go back to lighter hair but I'm going to wait for my hair to retain it's natural healthiness first, I want to repair the damage before I make it even worse. There's a drawer in my room that is filled with hair products so I've got no excuse not to have anything but shiny and glossy hair! Here are the products that I've been loving lately:

milk_shake Conditioning Whipped Cream: Of course, this is not really whipped cream, it is a mousse! I absolutely love the smell of this, it's actually reminds me of a milk shake! I think it smells like white chocolate or Mini Milk ice-lollies - it's a sweet fragrance, and rather unusual for a hair product, I like it a lot! This mousse is formulated to condition the hair and keep the moisture balanced. This protects hair and also seals colour. You apply this to clean damp hair and the mousse absorbs really well. It's not like a styling mousse that makes hair rigid and crispy. It leaves my hair feel soft and less tangled!

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Blow Dry Lotion*: This is a root booster and is probably best for fine hair, as it states on the packaging. I have very thick, heavy hair but it still manages to give it a bit of a lift at the crown. There's a lot of products in this range, I have tried the Luxurious Volume shampoo and conditioner and although it leaves me with full and soft hair, I wouldn't say that it's any different from other shampoo that I've been using lately. I like this blow dry lotion though, and it's not bad at all for £5.99!

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray: What styling product do you use when you have dry hair? After hearing a lot about sea salt spray last summer, I was eager to try it for myself. Not the best product to use for dry hair but when I curl my hair, I use this spray instead of hairspray because it's less harsh. It also doesn't leave you with crispy hair. It does, however, take away the shine, but that can be quite nice when you've curled your hair and you don't want it to look too girly or over done. Sea salt spray is perfect for creating beach waves or "tousled" hair. I realised, only a couple of months ago, that I've been pronouncing the word 'tousled" wrongly! How stupid of me!

Morocconoil® Treatment*: Another one of those hyped products. I've actually been using hair oils for a couple of years, so I have tried a few in the past and it's one of my beauty must-haves. This Morocconoil is in a cute little travel sized bottle! I didn't expect the consistency of this one to be so thick, and although the bigger bottles have a pump dispenser, this miniature bottle does not and I keep pouring out way too much. I guess you only need a few drops! For me, hair oil is one of those things that doesn't show results straight away but I use it once or twice a week to give my hair a boost of moisture and nourishments, which eventually transforms and maintains hair from damaged to shiny. At £12.85 for 25ml, it isn't cheap but if you want to rescue dry hair, I would recommend trying this little bottle.

  1. I've still yet to try Moroccan Oil, everyone raves about it.

    If you like John Freida I would recommend their Full Repair Range, the red bottles as they're really nice; I particularly like the shampoo :)

  4. I've heard really good things about the Morocconoil and John Frieda products!
    I have oily hair, so I don't really use anything especially - besides a nice hair mask and a bit of a cream for my ends.
    Please Take Care, have a nice day**

  5. I love the toni and guy texturising spray and not too long ago I was still saying tousled wrong so don't feel bad about that! ;)

    I received some moroccanoil to try and I can't wait to give it a go. The hairdresser used it once when I had my hair cut (absolutely ages ago now) and it left my hair so soft so I'm excited to use it!

  12. I love Toni and Guy's sea salt spray, since I've cut my hair shorter, I've been using it constantly! I pronounce tousled - "tow-sald", is that right?! x

  19. You write reviews in such a reader friendly way :) nothing too technical, and very easy to relate to! I don't really suffer from dry hair, I can only use the tiniest bit of conditioner on my hair otherwise it seems to get weighed down and feels dirty. I'm intrigued to try sea salt spray, the tousled look is so effortlessly pretty! I'm feeling very fed up with my hair at the moment, it is definitely in need of something! xx
