HAIR STYLING STAPLES



It's not often that I talk solely about my hair care on here, so I thought it was about time I reviewed some of my go to products that keep my hair looking and feeling its best. I don't have a signature style, I'm actually really quite lazy when it comes to hair styling, although I do try to maintain it in a good condition, sometimes it just needs that little extra addition of oomph to keep it in check.

Aussie Miracle Beach Waves Spray | I've been a huge Aussie fan ever since my early teens and have been through more of their products than my bank balance would like to admit. One of the latest additions to my collection is their Beach Waves Spray; it contains Australian sea kelp extract, a nutrient-rich seaweed which is believed to have skin softening qualities.  This adds a lovely texture to my hair and being Aussie - it of course smells divine. I do find that it's very easy to go overboard with this so just a few sprays is more than enough. 

Toni & Guy Radiating Tropical Elixir | First thing's first when I jump out of the shower I massage a couple pumps of this into the lengths of my hair. I used to stay away from any sort of hair oil because my darn roots tend to get greasy quicker than I'd like, but by just applying this to the lengths and ends of my hair makes such a difference. I've repurchased this once already and I can't get enough. It keeps my hair feeling super soft and has totally revived my dry ends. The Tropical Elixir also fights frizz and helps the appearance of your hairs natural shine.

Batiste Stylist XXL Volume Spray* | Although I wouldn't say my hair is overly thin, it lacks serious volume, predominantly near the roots. I've tried out a few different root boosting products over the years, but nothing compares to this particular one. I was originally sent this a while back, as well as some other products from the Batiste Stylist range, and have repurchased this twice since. I prefer this to a powder as it's super quick and easy to apply, especially when you're still half asleep trying to get yourself ready for work, or when you're in a rush. It brushes out well and doesn't leave your hair with that familiar unpleasant feeling that most volumising products do.

Schwarzkopf got2b Happy Hour Hairspray | This has been my holy grail hairspray since the day dot. I've tried branching out and trying different brands, but I always seem to make my way back to this. It doesn't have that overpowering scent that a lot of hairsprays do, there's something slightly floral about the smell, which is a nice bonus. I don't use a whole load of hairspray because as I mentioned earlier I'm rather boring when it comes to my hair, but this has great staying power and hold, and brushes out easily. Plus I'm a sucker for colourful packaging!

Batiste Stylist Frizz Tamer* | On the occasional damp and humid days that we get in the UK, my hair likes to act up and just not play ball. I've never been a lover of frizz tamers - I find that they don't work that well on my hair, but I think because this is a spray rather than a serum it actually does what it's supposed to do. It's long lasting, so no sudden frizzy surprises throughout the day, and it leaves my hair lovely and soft to the touch. It's also keratin infused to help strengthen hair, which is a great bonus for those who's hair is a little damaged, like myself.

Do you use any of these products? What are your hair styling staples?
