Luscious locks don’t always have to come at a price. As long as you take care of your hair and treat it as like a cashmere sweater instead of a cheap t-shirt you will most likely be alright! Doing things like using heat protection spray, oils and masks regularly helps keep hair in tip-top condition. Hair can age too so it’s really important to use the right products for your hair type as well and to not do things like bleach your hair, use heat styling tools everyday, etc. I’ve pulled together five of my new favourite budget friendly haircare heroes that do actually work. Read on!
Girls and guys just like you wouldn’t go to the beach without sunscreen you should not ever use heat on the hair without a heat protect spray! I also use heat protect sprays like styling sprays sometimes and this Keratin Smooth Protect Spray from Tresemme actually does 5 things in 1 product – frizz control, detangler, shine, soft feel, tames flyaways and heat protects! So I would really consider this a great multi-tasker – I will definitely be using it for both heat protection and a styling spray.
Now usually I tread carefully with oils as I’ve got fine hair but I do really like to use them on the dry ends of my hair. I massage in oil on damp hair straight out of the shower to hydrate and smooth. Again we have a multi-tasking product here in the form of the Keratin Smooth Shine Oil that does everything from taming flyaways to detangling. Another way I use oils is to smooth, smooth, smooth. Now a good tip is to use this on smoothing hair if you want an ultra-sleek pulled-back bun look – I recently tried this look at the hairdressers before an event and I absolutely loved it! So this will be my new sleek bun essential!
Oh I love a hair mask so much! Just like a face mask, a hair mask feels really luxurious and makes it feel like you are taking time out for YOU. Also hair needs extra special VIP treatment regularly because no matter winter or summer, there are always threats to the hair! From hard water to sun to wind – they are all after our locks. I like that the Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask can be used in place of conditioner once a week and left on for 3-4 minutes to work. That means that it’s super easy to inject this into your weekly beauty regime because it doesn’t take much time. A busy girl’s dream, really. Tresemme prides itself on being salon-quality at affordable prices as well so this is a real winner especially for the summer when heat and sun can leave hair at its worst.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money but also want volume for your buck then the newest shampoo from Lee Stafford is well worth a look at. This is a shampoo that’s great for fine-haired girls or those lacking hair volume. It adds oomph, body, texture, shine and gloss. Well that’s really all a girl could want right?
Again if you are going to use the Bigger Fatter Fuller Shampoo then you might as well use the conditioner that goes with it for the best results. This conditioner adds body and bounce without leaving hair weighed down!
