Haircare routine

My hair is long and extremely fine, not to mention quite damaged. Up until about 3 months ago, I didn't really have much of a Haircare routine - shampoo, conditioner and a heat-protect spray. Boom,done. Slightly shocking when you consider how long my hair is. Anyway, over the past few months I have actively been attempting to restore whatever life is left in my hair and try to protect it a little more.

Shampoo & Conditioner


Yves Rocher Volumising shampoo, Schwarzkopf Moisture Kick

I change my shampoo & conditioner frequently. I don't like using the same one for too long as using the same shampoo & conditioner for long periods of time can make your hair look dull (My dad should take note - a Vosene lover for years).

My current shampoo of choice is Yves Rocher Volumising shampoo for fine hair. I love this shampoo as it does make my hair feel thicker.However,I will be doing a full review on this product shortly on this product so I won't go into too much detail.
My current conditioner is one of Superdrug's own brand. I have used these previously and to be honest they are as good as any high end brand. The other conditioner pictured is Schwarzkopf moisture kick leave-in conditioner. However, I never use these two products on the same day. The one I use, normally depends on how late I am running for work in the morning (also known as how many times I press snooze).

Hair styling products


Clynol Glow Precious Oil, Fat Hair Root Lifting Spray, Fat Hair Thickening Spray, Naked heat defender spray


Clynol Glow Precious Oil: I use this product on the ends of my hair. One or two drops rubbed into my hands works wonders. I have reviewed this product which you can check out here.
Naked Style Heat defender spray: One of my must-have products is a heat protect spray. I don't straighten my hair as it is naturally straight (pain in the backside more often than not) but I do blow-dry it so I use it to protect from my hair dryer.
Fat Hair Root Lifting spray: As well as being naturally straight, my hair is fairly flat. It keeps no volume whatsoever. Therefore, I use this spray to at least attempt to get some volume into my hair. My hair does seem to like this product, so it seems likes there may be hope after all.
Fat Hair Thickening Spray: I concentrate this product mainly on the length of my hair to give it a bit of a boost. One thing I will say and that is that I love the smell of this product. It smells so good.

Miscellaneous


Vo5 Sea Salt Spray, Schwarzkopf detangling Spray


Schwarzkopf Kids detangling spray: I use this product quite a lot to detangle my hair as unsurprisingly my hair likes to get tangled up. It is another product which smells really good - it has a fruity smell.
Vo5 Sea salt spray: I use this product to give my hair a bit of texture. Usually I use it when I am going to curl my hair, however I have recently been using it much more on a daily basis.
