The go-to hair products I reach for daily to achieve frizz-free, hydrated, easy to manage locks.
My current hair routine and maintenance is super easy – for me it’s all about air-drying and minimal products. But I’ve definitely done the hard yards to get hair that’s actually easy to manage and requires minimal maintenance.
In high school I dyed my hair so many times it went grey (true story – my nickname was Grandma), and I’ve sizzled my hair so badly I’ve had to chop it off and grow it all out. It took me years to realise that when it comes to hair, less (everything), is in fact, definitely more.
In all honesty I put it’s current condition down to sheer laziness; I’ve had highlights once in the past two years, simply because my hairdresser and I don’t live in the same country. But it’s my laziness that has paid off; if you want easy hair that behaves every morning without putting in half an hour in front of the mirror, you have to lay off on the heat/bleach/damaging products.
I’m all for experimenting with cool colours and new shapes (hello, candyfloss head), but surprise, surprise, hair is a whole lot easier to manage when it’s healthy. I have naturally blonde, fine, wavy hair, so obviously these products aren’t exactly one-fits-all. However if you’re looking for ways to condition, add moisture and just generally tame the frizz, this list can 100% help you out.
