Today’s post is all about the fro!
I believe that a person’s hairstyle can really bring out their personality! My hair is currently an ashy blonde/brown colour. I still have my bleached bits and I am trying to keep it wavy but half the time it doesn’t work out that way, especially in the mornings, when my hair is an absolute mess.
I’ve done all sorts of things to my hair. Bleached it. Dyed it. Loose Curl Perms. Straight Perms… you name it. As a result, it has been pretty damaged over the years.
My hair history:
As you can see, in January 2014 I have blonde strands, which I have achieved by bleaching my hair (twice). Since then, the blonde bits of my hair has become very brittle. During the summer of 2014, I went and got a loose curl perm. Then in December 2014, I decided to dye it to an ashy-blonde with a blue undertone from Shiseido, where my blonde bits turned into a shade of ashy-blue. It looked really cool for about two weeks, before it turned into a lighter goldfish brown. From January 2015 onwards, I had been touching up my roots with L’oreal’s Excellence Creme in 8.1 Ash Blonde, and have kept it that way up till this day.
How would I describe my hair?
My hair has a mind of its own on. There are times when I have really good hair days, but it can also look completely flat and lifeless. As you can probably tell by now, I do like changing my hairstyle from time to time, I have even shaved a small section of my hair off before, I like being experimental with my look, as it really reflects my personality and style. Though I think I will give my fro a break, and will be keeping this hair style for the next couple of months.
Madison Reed is a hair care company that I have recently discovered. They have created a hair dye that is healthier for your strands than compared to most dyes! It’s free of gluten, PPD, sulfates, resorcinol and ammonia. I am definitely going to give it a try, to keep my dry and brittle hair at bay. The colour I would go for would be the Veneto Light Brown – 7NVA, which is a cool light-brown with smoky undertones.
Apart from using Dove’s Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner and Davine’s Nounou Nourishing Repair Mask, the Moroccanoil Treatment and Shiseido Tsubaki Water are also two of my holy grail products which I cannot live without!
Dove’s Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
It has the typical ‘Dove scent’, which in my opinion is a soft and delicate floral/musky smell. The formula is thick and creamy, and feels luxurious when applied. It contains coconut oil, macadamia oil and sweet almond oil with lactic acid. Personally, I think it has left my dry hair more hydrated without being weighed down.
Shiseido Tsubaki Water Mist
This leave-in hair mist is perfect for normal to dry, color treated or damaged hair. The convenient spray bottle makes it easy to apply a quick morning-fix hair treatment, or anytime during the day for extra moisture. Great for split-ends, color treated, sun damaged or permed hair. It improves hair manageability, eliminating tangles while providing deep nourishment, contains Camellia oil EX to repair damage hair, and Camellia leaf essence to give shine. Also contains Hyaluronic Acid derivative to lock in moisture from roots to tips – great for split ends! Absolutely love this and I have been using this for years. I usually use this on my dry hair, spray it 2-3 times before I style my hair or when my hair is badly tangled.
Need I say more! Everyone knows how amazing this product is. It definitely locks in the moisture from my hair after a wash. I can instantly feel the difference before and after applying this product to my hair. This is an absolute staple in my bathroom cabinet.
