[HAIR] Hair Care Routine

22 June 2010

Hair Type:
Fine, flat, greasy/oily hair

Step 1: Shampoo Part 1
I'll use either one of these:
Alberto Balsam Juicy Green Apple Shampoo:

CIEN Shampoo For Daily Use With Herb And Aloe Vera Extracts:

Both of these shampoos are good for greasy hair. They make my hair feel so clean afterwards and they both do volume my hair. They both contain herbal extracts and vitamin B5 which strengthens the hair. I'll use wither of these shampoo. More like whichever I grab first. They're both cheap and affordable.

Step 2: Shampoo Part 2
Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo:

I do love to have big, volumising hair. I use this after the first shampoo. This is more of a gel consistency. My is is fine and limp and no volume at all, best volumising shampoo. It doesn't leave my hair greasy and for £3.59, it's good!

Step 3: Hair Mask
Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment
"Its vital hair and scalp complex helps to reduce hair loss. It improves follicle health which in turn increases the ability of the hair to anchor to the scalp. The soothing formulation reduces irritation and moisturises the scalp. It addresses hair and scalp ageing at a cellular level whilst providing an improvement in tensile strength to give body and texture by penetrating the hair reaching the inner cortex. Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment also improves the volume and feel of the hair."

It states to scoop an egg size into the palm and massage into the roots and end. Size equivalent to an egg is a bit too much. Leave it on for 5 mins then wash it out. Amazing hair mask. My hair is more controllable and the texture of my hair is good, leaving it soft. It slightly thickened my hair as my hair is very fine. I haven't noticed whether this makes my hair grow faster as my hair does naturally grow fast. Best hair mask treatment I've used and the smell i so nice. For £6.99, it's worth every penny!

Step 3.5: Conditioning
The reason for this being step 3.5 is due to the fact I only condition my hair once a week. I hate wash in wash out conditioners as my hair does get greasy after half a day. I only use the conditioner which was provided with my hair dye.
Superdrug Intense Colour Conditioner:

I use this to keep the colour of my hair vibrant and beautiful. This is like a leave in treatment. It states to leave it in for 2 mins. This does leave my hair moisturised and my hair doesn't lose its colour. Leaves my hair soft.

Step 4: Conditioning Part 1
Boots Expert Leave-in Thickening Conditioner:

This leave in conditioner is light and it's £2.99. Conditions my hair and adds volume. It makes my hair easier to style. I prefer using leave in conditioner like this. Hair doesn't get greasy throughout the day and it's perfect. A few sprays form root to ends and then gently use a wide tooth comb to comb threw or use my hands to go through my hair.

Step 5: Conditioning Part 2
Watsons Vitamin B5 Nourishing Leave-On-Conditioner:

I bought this in Hong Kong last year in the summer and it lasted me ages. Since the ends of the hair is the oldest, we need to keep it in good condition. I love to use this for my ends and it deep conditions it and it doesn;t need to wash out. It moisturises the ends and since it contains vitamin B5, it's great. I hardly get split ends and it was cheap in Hong Kong too since it was Watson's own brand. Can't exactly remember the exact price.

A lot of products right?

Other information:
Like I stated in the video, I don't blowdry my hair, hardly straighten my hair. I do sometimes curl my hair. Hot appliances aren't good for your hair.

  2. Hey Nicol! Does the Roots actually help to thicken? I need something for my roots, b/c they're oily like yours, so they tend to flatten >_<

    Darn I was hoping you'd have some good recommendations for heat styling... but you don't heat style LOL!

  9. allo allo
    secret army here

    Must tell you that I am Swedish man of 55, had problems with irritation in the "hair-bottom" (or how to say in english) for MANY years but I recently found that the Cien product with Aloe Vera and Salvia, at your second pic from the top of the site, is the best I ever tried!
    Other schampos give soon irritation back or make it even worse (like Head and S...) with zink pyrithon and other poisons.

    Love :)
