I’ve realised that using the correct shampoo for your hair type and hair concern is actually really important, so I’ve been I’ve been obsessed with trying different haircare brands lately!
Haircare Products To Try For Dull, Lacklustre Hair
With an increase use of heat appliances, my hair certainly has now turned weak, damaged and brittle. And using the wrong haircare for so many years probably didn’t help either! I don’t remember the last time I was happy with the condition of my hair but hopefully it’s on it’s way for shine and health!
Here are some brands that I’ve been using:
Milk_shake have released a range of minis consisting of the brand’s 8 most popular products. My favourite product from Milk_shake is the Conditioning Whipped Cream which I featured on my blog a few years ago. But I’ve recently tried the Incredible Milk 12-in-1 leave-in spray - it smells like ice cream and white chocolate! The leave-in spray detangles, prevents split ends, adds volume and shine, and has UV protections.
Their Sensorial Mint Shampoo and Conditioner is an refreshing, invigorating, cooling, organic mint formula for your scalp and hair which is perfect to use for hot days and after the gym.
If there’s one hair brand to try this month, make it Shea Moisture. There is a great history behind the brand which starts all the way back from 1912.
I’ve been using their Raw Shea Butter for the past couple of months along with their Superfruit Complex hair masque which has been so effective repairing dull, dry, lack-lustre hair. Just like Shea Butter is GREAT for moisturising your skin, this Raw Shea Butter haircare is brilliant for your hair. I couldn't stop touching my hair when I first used this.
If you have thick and unmanageable hair, try something from Shea Moisture’s extensive range. They do not use parabens, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, or petroleum. No nasties!
Rahua is a beautiful high end brand that uses high performance, nourishing ingredients such as Rahua-Ungurahua, quinoa, coconut and shea butter.
Their products are made with organic, and 100% natural, gluten-free ingredients that are suitable for vegans. It’s a gentle formula that cleanses without stripping your hair and scalp of it’s nutrients. Rahua is one to try if your hair is desperately calling out for some at-home-salon-experience TLC.
I’m not sure how many people have heard of ESPA but I was recently introduced to this spa brand. I wish I could say that my usual hang out is a spa, but I rarely go - and if I could choose to go to one right now, it’d be the ESPA Life at Corinthia Hotel in London. A girl can dream!
I’ve managed to get my hands on a bottle of ESPA Purifying Shampoo and Nourishing Conditioner. It removes product build up with it’s 99% natural formula featuring bergamot, jasmine, cedarwood, honey, coconut, jojoba and olive oil. It’s free from SLS but it still lathers up a treat. It’s suitable for brittle and heat damaged hair (perfect for me, then!) and leaves hair feeling clean for days!
If your hair is dyed and the condition is less than desirable, Pureology's Colour Fanatic range protects and boosts colour-treated hair. Finding the best conditioners and treatments is on the top of my list at the moment because now that I've got grey hairs to worry about, I will probably to continue to dye my hair for the rest of my life! Ugh.
Luckily, Pureology does the trick. There are so many great claims (anti-frizz, primes, reduces static, quick-drying...) but as long as it keeps my hair healthy and the dye in my hair vibrant, that's all I can about.
