Hair Care Routine

Today I thought I would share with you how I look after my hair. My hair is sometimes a bit troublesome as it is naturally curly and as with a lot of people who have curly hair it has the tendency to be a tad frizzy. I have been doing this routine now for about 6 months but have been using all of these products between 1 and 5 years (the hair serums have been in my life for what seems like forever!) I am going to give you a step by step guide on how I do my hair and also how I style it. Bare in mind that if you have completely straight frizz free hair this routine will not be suitable for you but to all of you out there with hair like mine then this might be useful.

Step 1: First of all I get my hair wet and apply my conditioner which is Tresemme Keratin Smooth conditioner, to the ends of my hair. Yes I meant conditioner first. This is a tip that I only used for the first time today but I have to admit my hair is feeling super soft at the ends now. I found this little tip in Elle Fowler's (her YouTube name is AllThatGlitters21) latest video (link to the video here) and she said her hair stylist said that it helps protect the shampoo from drying out the ends of your hair. After applying the conditioner I apply my shampoo which is also from the Tresemme Keratin Smooth collection to only my scalp since that is where the oil is and then rinse.

Step 2: Next I apply conditioner again but this time I use my Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Frizz Remedy Deep Conditioner but only to the very ends of my hair. I leave this in whilst I wash, exfoliate and do all the other things that might take 3 minutes and then rinse out with cold water. This may be slightly unbearable but this will help add shine to your hair and also prevent a bit of frizz.

Step 3:  When I get out of the shower I put my hair in a hair turban towel and leave it like that for about 15 minutes. In this time I get dressed and do my makeup. Sometimes I leave it in for more time sometimes it is less time, it just depends on how long it takes me to get ready.

Step 4: Once I am ready I take my hair out of the towel and spray the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave In Conditioner all over my hair to leave it soft and less frizzy. Then comb it through with a wide toothed comb so it is evenly distributed throughout all of my hair.

Step 5: This step varies depending on whether I'm leaving my hair naturally curly or if I'm going to style it so Version one: when I keep it curly I put my damp hair into a French Plait/Braid to dry so that I am left with more controlled curls than if I just left it to dry without any help.
Version two: I leave my hair to dry naturally because I am going to style it.

Step 6: Version one: I usually leave it in until it is dry or almost 100% dry and then when it is ready I take it out of the plait/braid and put a tiny amount of the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum to the ends of my hair and then anything left on my hands can go lightly on my roots but be careful not the put too much there because it will look greasy, comb through with a wide toothed comb and that's it done!
Version two: I leave my hair to dry fully and then I put the thermal version of the John Freida hair serum so that I have even more heat protection than just applying a heat protection spray and comb it through with a wide toothed comb.

Step 7: Next I spray the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine spray all over my hair, roots to the ends and comb it through again with a wide toothed comb to evenly distribute it throughout my hair so that it is all protected from the heat of my hair straighteners.

Step 8: This is the final step and that is to straighten my hair. I use ghd IV styler and just straighten it. There isn't much to it. I separate it into small sections and straighten my hair. It is as simple as that.

That is my current hair care routine. I'm sure it will change over the next few months as it gets into winter but as of now this is my haircare routine.
