I don't really talk about my hair on here, which is strange considering how long my hair is... To be honest that's maybe the main reason why I don't focus on my hair too much. I'm in such a hair rut, I go through phases of really hating it, feeling as though I can't do anything with it and wanting to chop it all off, but then I get the fear and daren't go through with it. 

This year however, I have promised myself that much needed hair makeover... I'm not entirely sure what I'll be getting done yet, whether it will be a cut or colour, or both, but I do know that I can't wait for my style refresh!
Until then, I'm doing my best to really care for my hair and make the best of what I've got, which has lead me to talking about my current hair care favourites (or heroes, for the alliteration lover in me).
For such a long time I never bothered with hairsprays, I couldn't find one which I loved enough to warrant using due to either awful residue being left in my hair or that overly crispy feeling which I really can't stand. A few months ago however, I received a bundle of hair products which included the Tresemme Ultimate Hold Hairspray which has totally changed my thoughts on sprays. 
This is so lightweight, so much so that I can barely feel anything in my hair, even when I use it in my roots it doesn't leave my hair looking greasy or weighed down at all. Whether I use this to hold volume or to hold my style, be it straight or curly, this never lets me down and the next day I'm able to brush through my hair really easily. 
I have a little confession to make with this one... I haven't religiously used a heat protector on my hair, despite using heated tools on an almost daily basis. It's such a simple step to spritz something over the hair before styling, so there's really no excuse, but for some reason it's never been a permanent step in my hair care routine.
I've consciously made the effort to use something recently though, as my hair (especially the ends) is starting to look a little damaged. The product I have been using is the Show Beauty Thermal Protect which not only smells incredible, but leaves my hair protected and feeling so smooth and soft. Due to containing wheat protein, this enhances shine and body, while protecting the hair from heat and therefore improving the hairs overall condition. 

In a bid to improve the quality of my hair, I have also been using the Unwash Hydrating Mask on my dry and brittle ends. This can be used from the roots, but I choose not to, as my hair can get a little greasy. I apply this on the bottom four or five inches of my hair when damp and rinse after five minutes.
The key ingredients of Argan Oil and Hydrolyzed Quinoa rehydrate the hair, add shine and prevent frizz. The hair is deeply conditioned and left feeling incredibly silky and soft.
I have said before how disappointed I am that I took so long to get myself a Tangle Teezer... I've really been missing out. My hair has always been a real nightmare to brush through, it's long, thick and knotty, but I find life so much easier with this little brush. 
The two-tiered teeth on this brush ensure smooth brushing, with minimum breakage and damage to the hair when wet or dry. I use mine morning and night, and even carry it around in my handbag for any midday touch ups and I can definitely see why they are so hyped up - they're easily worth it.
Lastly, when it comes to washing my hair, I have a few shampoos and conditioners that I always go back to and kind of use in rotation with each other. My current choice is a three product system consisting of the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo & Conditioner & In Shower Treatment
I struggle with achieving volume in my hair as it's so long and weighty, but this shampoo and conditioner somehow treat and detangle the hair without adding any weight and their volume boosters add some real body to my roots. The In Shower Treatment adds body throughout the hair and smooths the hair, making it appear silky and smooth when dried.
All three products smell beautiful, which transfers slightly onto the hair and a little bit of each seems to go a really long way... I'll definitely keep going back to this trio.
