#SBBC Day 8: How to maintain healthy hair

I have incredibly thick hair. It sounds like everyone’s dream – but they don’t have to deal with it! It is too heavy to hold a curl most of the time so instead it is wavy with a slight tendency to frizz! I’m also lucky enough that I started going grey at a very young age and have had to dye my hair on an ongoing basis since I was about 17 to cover my ever more extensive greys! Don’t ya wish you were me? 😛

Even as a young child my mother warned me to be very careful with my hair. She used to scare me by saying that if I let it get knotted/into bad condition that she would have to shave my head as it wouldn’t be possible to fix it. I was so afraid she was right that I have always minded my hair. This still didn’t stop me having a dreadful scare when I went to get highlights done for the first time as an adult and they did a strand test… The strand of hair disintegrated completely – purely from the damage done by home colouring!

I’ve never been one to use heat on my hair. The fact that it is so thick makes blowdrying or straightening it a pretty arduous task so I tend to just let nature take it’s course. I own a GHD but I have used it on my own hair about twice… At most! If I want my hair straightened for an event I go to my hairdressers and get it blow dried straight. Much less hassle! 😉

Keeping my hair in good condition is mainly down to the products I use and the fact that I haven’t heat damaged my hair. I figured it has enough to deal with in getting coloured every 4-5 weeks! The above products are the ones I am currently using – and loving!

Lush H’Suan Wen Hua and Ojon restorative hair serum are both products that I reviewed as part of my post on hair products during #JuneBBC (here).

I reviewed *Mark Hill MiracOILicious shampoo and hair mask here.  I’ve been using them since July and am loving them! A little goes a long way with the mask and it is *so* effective. I highly recommend it! Both products smell fab too! 🙂 If I am using the mask I don’t use the Ojon serum as I feel that would be overloading my hair with products.

Orofluido Conditioner is a relatively new addition to the routine. I’m loving that this is in a pump bottle. The smell is amazing and the conditioner seems really effective too. My mum is a massive fan of the hair mask from this range and I have heard nothing but good things about it. I use this conditioner if I am not using the Mark Hill MiracOILicious mask and will usually use the Ojon serum afterwards.

My hair is in great condition at the moment – despite my having gotten my highlights back in over the summer. In fact, I was recently asked if I had ever coloured my hair so that just shows me how natural and in good condition it looks. 🙂

Let me know if you have tried any of these products? What do you use?

* denotes PR Sample – everything else I bought myself… Hair products would make a pretty crap gift! 😛

  1. I’ve been going grey since I was about 21, which is SO handy, isn’t it? My Nana was completely white before she hit 30! I’ve quite thick coarse hair, I haven’t used the Orofluido conditioner but I do use the serum and it’s brilliant (plus it smells unreal) x

  2. I really like the sound of the Mark Hill mask, My hair is meh right now so need to do something to shake up the routine!
