Hello there :)

For my first post, i've decided to talk a bit about hair care and hair styling. My hair is wavy, sometimes even towards curly. Everyone who has curly/wavy hair knows how difficult it is (sometimes) to take care of it. Anyhow, before my hair was dyed, it wasn't so frizzy, but now i have to deal with that too. The consequences of having dyed hair.. but i must admit, i don't regret it, i love my red hair!

Below you can see two pictures of myself: my natural color (1st pic) and the red color which i'm wearing right now (2nd pic), but my hair is a bit shorter (i cut it a week ago).

Now, these are the products i use in order to keep my hair defrizzed, shiny, untangled and most of all, healthy.

(from left to right)
Lee Stafford Argan Oil from Morocco
Syoss Max Hold Hairspray
Tigi Catwalk Curlesque Curls Rock Amplifier Cream
Tigi Rockaholic Born to Rock Leave-in Detangler&Defrizzer
Schwartzkopf Bliss Color Protect Leave-in Conditioner
Fekkai Marine Summerhair Leave-in Conditioner
Balea Trend it up Dry Shampoo

Now, i have a kind of "ritual", so to speak, after i wash my hair. Firstly, i dry it a bit with the towel, but i take care not to rub it, 'cuz that will only get my hair tangled and/or frizzy. After that, i use the Schwartzkopf Bliss Color Protect Leave-in Conditioner and i let it air-dry for about 30 minutes.

(When it's summer i prefer to use the Fekkai Marine Summerhair Leave-in Conditioner and Lee Stafford Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist and be done with it.)

Secondly, i use the Lee Stafford Argan Oil from Morocco, wait for another 10 minutes, and finally add the Tigi Catwalk Curlesque Curls Rock Amplifier Cream. The good thing is that the cream is extremely light-weight, has a great smell (as all the other Tigi products do) and it only takes a bit for usage.

Although i have tried a lot of hairsprays, i sticked to Syoss. It may not be the best brand in the world, but when it says "Max Hold" it really is true! Plus, your hair doesn't look greasy or flat and it doesn't lose its shininess.

I don't usually go over 4 days of not washing my hair, but when it does happen, i use Balea Trend it up Dry Shampoo. It's also very handy in winter, when all the coffee shops and bars are full of smoke and you end up carrying around in your hair that awful smell of cigar smoke. If you use hair perfume it will just cover the smell, but it won't actually get you rid of it. Now, the dry shampoo is a shampoo, right? :)

Needless to say, i use the Tigi Rockaholic Born to Rock Leave-in Detangler&Defrizzer when i have to brush my hair, of before i hop in the shower to wash it. Otherwise, i would really have a hell of a time to detangle it! Although, if you use too much of this product, your hair will become greasy, so watch out on the quantity.

One product that i have mentioned and is not on the above list is Lee Stafford Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist.

The reason for it not appearing in my photo with all the other products is the fact that i don't have it anymore, but i'll definitely repurchase it! The smell is great and it is also so light-weight, doesn't make my hair look loaded.

Finally, the only two things i haven't talked about are shampoo and conditioner. Yes, i do use conditioner in the shower even if i use a leave-in one after that. It makes my hair much more kind. These two products are from the same range of products: Infinity hair conditioner (balsam) and Imperity shampoo.

Both of them are based on wheat protein and are in recipients of 1200ml (which is a LOT, they last for about 3 months - have i mentioned that one bottle is around 7 dollars?

All in all, these are the hair products i use :) I have tried lots of other products before, from different brands, but i have come to love these and be completely sure that i want to repurchase them. My hair does look better and keep in mind, it is quite damaged due to all the dyeing.
