For the past week or so, the weather has been really horrific. It’s more than just some autumn rain – it’s cold, it’s windy and it’s very wet. This means I’m relying more than usual on my trusty straighteners in an effort to keep my hair looking normal.
And this increased use of the dreaded GHD‘s means that my hair gets a little drier than normal. To combat this, I’ve been using Tommyguns’ Jasmine, Wild Nettle and Sweet Almond shampoo and conditioner.
This is one of the first hydrating shampoos I’ve tried which is clear – usually they’re milky looking, but this is perfect if you have hair which needs some love but doesn’t want to be weighed down. When I use this, my hair is soft and shiny, and it smells ah-maz-ing. I think it’s the jasmine, but this smells like the most divine orange-blossom floral fragrance. It’s actually insane how good this stuff smells. (I may have caught myself sniffing my ends in Starbucks. It was all kinds of awkward).
After shampooing, I’ve been using the conditioner. It feels lightweight, but don’t let that fool you – this leaves hair so soft and shiny. And it smells just as good as the shampoo. Seriously, these are the best smelling shampoo and conditioner in the world! Since I’ve been using this my hair doesn’t feel as tangled when I get out the shower, and even my ends feel lovely and soft.
After I’ve blown out my hair – I use the Dew Drops as a finishing product, a teeny-tiny drop before I use my straighteners and another teeny-tiny drop after. The drops are really thick, and there is a silicone feeling to it, but these are perfect for preventing my hair frizzing up as it tends to do when there is this much moisture in the air. Not only this, but the Drops leave my hair really shiny, without feeling sticky or weighed down.
The best part about all of these? (As well as the smell and results) The shampoo and conditioner are only £5.50 each and the Dew Drops are £6.50 and all are available from Waitrose.
