This year, I’m definitely going to take care of my hair more carefully. 2015 saw me experiment with a couple of techniques, which led to a whole lot of extra highlights, and my hair is definitely drier and more sensitised than normal. So, in an effort to undo some of last year’s ‘experiments,’ I’ve been turning to New Nordic’s Hair Volume Tablets. The supplements are packed full of extracts from apples which are rich in procyanidins, as well as vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Promising to nourish and support new hair growth, I’ve been popping a single pill every morning in an effort to get thick, voluminous hair in time for summer. New Nordic claims that the pills have a visible effect within a month, and a couple of weeks in – I can definitely see a difference. My hair seems to be growing faster than normal (my roots are already showing despite having a full head of highlights a couple of weeks ago) and my nails even feel longer and stronger than normal. I’m so happy with the results, and am definitely going to keep up with my routine, so my hair is in tip top condition for the summer!
New Nordic Hair Volume Supplements are priced at £21.74 for 30 tablets and are available here.
Invisibobbles have quickly become my go-to when I’m throwing my hair up in a ponytail. The design means that your hair isn’t left in a kinky mess no matter how long it’s been up for, and since they’re plastic they don’t snag or tear hair. Basically, they are everything you need for a healthy ponytail.
As if the design wasn’t great enough, they come in a complete rainbow of colours! Fresh for Valentines (which is next week, eek!) Invisibobbles have released some limited editions in clear and a gorgeous plum. The boxes have the most adorable images and rhymes, and I know I’m going to be reaching for these well past the 14th!
A pack of 4 costs £3.75 and is available from Boots. US readers can find them here
There is nothing I like more than a good blow-out; if I could get it done professionally every morning, I definitely would. Unfortunately, I don’t have limitless funds and a good hairdresser nearby I’m left to wrangle my air myself. Since my hair is long, I love when I actually spend the time and blow dry it properly so it’s all swingy and shiny.
Since my hair is long, I love when I actually spend the time and blow dry it properly so it’s all swingy and shiny. The newest tool in my arsenal is Trevor Sorbie’s Medium Radial Brush, and since it’s salon-quality it is ridiculously easy to use.
Once I’ve blow dried my hair until it’s about 50% dry, then I nozzle the hairdryer and start on sections, making sure to direction the air down. Since the brush isn’t too big, it’s perfect for getting everything perfectly smooth, and I can also flip my ends in a bit, meaning everything looks tidy, and, dare I say it, almost professional!
The brush £8.19 and is available from Boots.
I’m constantly on the lookout for products which make my hair feel all swingy, bouncy and healthy. Thankfully, Electric Hair’s Preparation Spray is making blow outs a whole lot easier! View Post
Argan oil’s moisturizing properties aren’t anything new. I’ve been using the stuff on my hair for years now loving how it prevents split ends and gives shine. I’ve also been known to slather some of the stuff on knees and elbows when regular lotion just doesn’t do it. Obviously I’m not the only one, Kahina Giving Beauty have created the most gorgeous soap with the oil. View Post
There has been a tonne of buzz about Kiko’s Hair Shadows which have just been released, so I knew I had to try one. View Post

All this cold weather we’ve been having can be murder on hair – I don’t know about you, but I’m pulling out the straighteners more than usual. Plus sleeping with the heating on, wearing scarves and when it gets really cold, wearing hats are all pretty rough on strands. So that I don’t feel too guilty about it all, I’ve been turning to Nanogen’s clever serum. View Post
So I’m at the awkward stage where my hair really needs done, but considering my colorist is happily ensconced on Madison Avenue, and I’m not, I want to extend these highlights for as long as possible. View Post
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. View Post
