The one thing that I get the most comments about is my hair. I must admit, it’s rather long and I don’t get it cut that often. I’m constantly thinking about taking the plunge and getting it cut short into a long bob. If I’m not a fan, I can always buy hair extensions. With long hair and even hair extensions, it’s all about maintaining the hair’s health. I’ve always been very lucky that my hair is in great condition, especially for the long length. Believe it or not, I don’t have any secret products and barely do anything with it. Although I don’t have any big secrets, I thought I’d share some of my tips on how I manage my long hair.
Tangle Teezer aka Gamechanger
First things first, I could not live without my Tangle Teezer. You are only as good as your tools and the Tangle Teezer is a must for anyone with long hair. I’ve not looked back since purchasing one 7 or 8 years ago. My hair can sometimes get rather knotty and using the Tangle Teezer is a pain-free and easy way of detangling my mane. The one with a handle is the best and I couldn’t recommend this hair tool enough. Can you believe the Tangle Teezer got rejected from Dragon’s Den and it’s now one of the most loved hairbrushes on the market!
L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and Conditioner
For the past year or so I’ve been using the L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve found it’s so important finding a Shampoo and Conditioner combo that works for you. There have been a few other brands which I’ve tried recently and my hair went frizzy and greasy which isn’t a good look. So when you find a product which works for you, stick to it.
This is a tip which I should actually take into consideration myself. Regular Haircuts is an obvious way to keep your hair healthy and looking fresh. I’ve not had a haircut in over a year and a half and surprisingly it’s not in bad condition. I’m well overdue a fresh cut and I’ll most likely go to my favourite hair salon; Rush in York.
Know your style
I’d like to think that I could rock any hairstyle but that’s really not the case. I find that my go-to style is loose curls or plaits if I want it out of the way. You’ll notice that when I’m travelling, I wear my hair in plaits a lot. You’ll rarely see me on the blog with my hair scraped back in a ponytail or bun as I just hate the way it looks on me. I have a really dodgy hairline with uncontrollable baby hairs. If anyone has any recommendations for products to tame baby hairs, I’d be so grateful. I’ve previously been told to use hairspray on a toothbrush to comb the baby hairs but I’m yet to try that!
