So today I thought I'd share with you my favourite products for damaged hair.
I bleached my hair for about 5 or 6 years, and over that time accumulated a lot of damage. Since about October last year that damage has been getting more and more obvious, so I've been spending some serious time lately trying to find a routine that helps smooth, nourish and protect my hair.
To help my hair grow, I take a 10,000mcg tablet of Biotin every day, and a Selenium supplement as well. I've found the Biotin in particular really helps my nails to grow stronger and longer than usual. My hair has grown much thicker than usual, and although I can't really tell for sure, I think it's been growing a little more quickly.
My natural hair is currently at a rather awkward length, with quite a few layers. The longest parts just about hit my armpit area, whereas the shortest lengths are just passing my earlobes. I currently wear extensions to hide my (unwanted!) mullet-like haircut I was given in February.
I put this on when my hair is still wet from the shower, though I will also dab a little on to dry, frizzy parts if I feel like I need a little touch up.
The smell is quite mild, I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but it's quite distinctive and overall pleasant. The smell doesn't last once it's in your hair which I quite like.
I only got this a few days ago and I'm already absolutely raving about it. This is Urban Fudge's Miracle Ends Treatment. When I first got hold of it I put it on dry hair, but I soon realised that wasn't how it works.
To get this to work to it's full potential, this needs to be applied to your hair just as you come out of the shower. I applied about a hazelnut sized amount and spread it through the midsection and ends of my hair, rubbing whatever was left over on to my scalp and roots.
After I had blow dried my hair the results were astonishing: my hair was soft, silky and there was no sign of damage whatsoever. This stuff really is a miracle worker! And as I picked it up on sale at Superdug I only paid £2.70 for it! If you're near a Superdrug I highly reccomend popping by and grabbing this at that price while you can.
My only drawback is the smell. It's nice, but reminds me of the scented makeup I had as a kid. It just isn't a very sophistocated kind of smell, however it doesn't last long after application.
