How are you all? I hope you are having a great week so far. Sorry for the lack of updates on our blog lately – both of us have been busy with moving and preparing for the start of term. Tweedle T and I are both back in the UK for our masters degree this year! Greetings from the beautiful UK, though I am already missing the warm weather in Hong Kong.
In today’s blog I am going to be talking about my current hair favourites. These 3 goodies have helped transform my lifeless, volume deprived, dry strands into vibrant, voluminous locks.
First lets talk about my hair type. I have long Asian hair that is very thick and black. I have had lots of colouring done to my hair over the past year so I would say it is very damaged! I recently had it done to an ombre style, which I absolutely adore; but it does mean I have to take extra care of the lighter parts since it has been lightened and some parts, bleached.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray from Space NK – £19
I was in London over the weekend and managed to pick this goodie up! I have heard so many youtubers rave about this product and I finally have my hands on it! I picked up the smaller 75mL bottle to test out. It is also available in 300mL (£39). This texturising spray is definitely on the pricey side, but since it was just right there in front of me, I had to get it and see what all the fuss is all about! The lady at the till said that this is one of her all time favourties and that she loved it – which double reassured me!
What I thought:
For one, it smells AMAZING! Much better than any dry shampoo I have ever smelt (definitely beats Batiste). The description says it is “A brilliant alternative to dry shampoo“, which is awesome. Not only does it absorb excess oil but also adds volume and has an amazing smell. I sprayed the product into my roots at the top of my head, flipping my hair from side to side. It definitely did the trick! My flat hair instantly looked more voluminous. It is a great treat to have but I am not sure if I will buy it again purely due to its price… I shall use this sparingly! Overall, I am very happy with this hair spray.
However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, then you might want to try Charles Worthington’s Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray (£6.99), which the Tweedlets also love.
Phyto Nourishing Day Cream with 9 Plants for Ultra-Dry Hair
Phyto is a well known French haircare brand, famous for using natural ingredients. I picked this up in a drugstore in France over the summer holidays and I would recommend anyone with dry/ damaged hair to get this. After using hot tools on my hair or whenever my locks are looking dry, I will squeeze a pea sized amount onto my palm and rub it in. It is extremely hydrating and helps calm down any frizziness. It really impressed me because it was able to instantly make my hair look moisturised and revived.
Bumble and bumble Bb Hairdressers Invisible Oil
I got this in Sephora and thought it would be the perfect size to take on short trips. I used a tester bottle in the shop and thought it smelt great but didn’t really check to see if my ends looked more hydrated with it on. It was a small bottle and quite cheap so I bought it anyway. But having tested in out a couple of times now, it’s safe to say that I am in love with it! It works amazingly with my dry hair and again, leaves it feeling very hydrated. It gets rid of any frizziness and softens the ends, making it look very “polished”. It also smells like tangerines, which I am a fan of.
Autumn is just around the corner and we really need to make the extra effort to keep our hair looking healthy and strong. Remember to buy more intense, heavy duty moisturising conditioners and hair masks to keep your locks looking beauti-fall! ;)
Let me know in the comments section below what other products you’d recommend for the winter season and if you have used any of the ones mentioned above!
Lots of Love,
