Long Beautiful Hair

Is what I want! I had a bob for ages in college but hated it. And now my hair is long. I love the way it looks. But it takes some maintaining. Mainly, the thing that is missing from my hair is moisture. So I look for anything that will hydrate my hair. I've tried brands from the salon, and cheaper end stuff. But my favourite is this set above. 

I don't usually write beauty blogs, as I am no expert and only know what suits myself. I think make up and beauty products are a very personal thing, noone's skin/ hair/ colouring is the same. But when I find something I think people will like I like to share it. This herbal essences set has really helped my hair out. I haven't cut it since November 2011, yet the ends still look good when I am continuously using this product. It smells lovely too! And people always say they can smell it. It doesn't make my hair greasy, which is another problem for me. And when I need an extra boost they have a deep nourishment and shine intensive mask, which really helps. 

To keep my ends looking neat I use this cheap alternative to Moroccan Oil. This was from Boots and I really like it. Although it does make my hair greasy at the top if I put it too close to my roots.

What's your favourite shampoo and conditioner? Can you recommend any you like better?

  1. I love Herbal Essences- I've been using them since my early teens I think. I usually go for the pale green one (shampoo and conditioner), which I think is the 'for normal hair' one (but don't quote me on that). If used this one, as well, and both always leaves my hair soft, shiny, and hydrated, and they smell great. I can't fault them.

    I also love the Aussie range. I usually have one of their leave in conditioners that I spray in before brushing my hair after a shower and it works wonders on conditioning it. 3 minute miracle is great for a bit of TLC. Would really recommend using them. I used to have really long hair and they kept it in good shape :)

  2. Herbal Essences is good stuff. I like L'Oreal Everstrong (my hair breaks from coloring it), and Garnier Argan Oil leave in conditioner.
