Current Favourite Hair Products.

I've mentioned before that I don't really do a lot to my hair, it's usually quite messy. I never even used to use conditioner! It's quite fine and soft but thick, if that makes sense. I wash it every day and then blow dry it and use straightening irons (though not on all of it). Bad.
Recently, I've rediscovered my John Frieda Frizz Eaze Serum which is an absolute miracle product. I've had this bottle for years, since it first came out I guess. Anyway, I've only recently started using it properly and my hair really loves it. Blow drying my hair makes it quite frizzy so this keeps it in place and makes it so soft, oh so soft.

I was given this L'Oreal Professional product Pli recently to give a bit of texture to my hair. My hair goes flat quite quickly after backcombing and styling so since I've introduced this it makes it easier to style (because its so soft and fine). I spray it through towel dried hair and then use my hairdryer to activate. It really does give it a nice thick texture without being crispy. I'd love to try more products from this range! 

I recently bought the new VO5 Give me Texture powder, I've used the Osis one for years but its quite expensive and I didn't like how yuck it made my hair. This variation is great, I find that it doesn't make my hair as sticky and horrible as the Osis and it's so much cheaper. I'd definitely recommend this! I just apply it to my roots, you only need a small bit or it looks a bit grey in dark hair. Then massage in and you have big hair. Done. 

You will recognise this Caviar Anti-Ageing Hair spray from the first ever Glossybox! I absolutely love this product, if a perfume came out with this scent I would absolutely buy it. I broke the bottom by dropping it so it has tape around it. I don't use it all time, but its nice to give a lovely gloss to your hair as well as apparently protecting it from age. Yay for caviar.

Lastly, a product that I've been using for years and another one from John Frieda. Its the Blow Dry Lotion which is applied to the roots of damp hair before blowdrying to give texture and volume. Another one I really recommend, I've repurchased this once I think as it lasts so long. I prefer this to the mousse as you don't really feel it in your hair. 

What are your favourite hair products? 


  1. I use the blow dry lotion too and I love it! I normally only use it for night outs though because it leaves build up on my hair if I use it all the time :( xxx

  2. this is the perfect post for me! i've been looking desperately for products to give my hair more volume, i'm going to give a couple of these a go :) xxx

  3. I don't do much to my hair either, to be honest! I just wash and condition with Tres Emme heat protect and use my Front Row heat protect spray before I set my straighteners on it.
