Current hair care routine and mini reviews

When it comes to haircare, I like to experiment with different products, and as a result I'm constantly chopping and changing my routine. Here's what I'm currently using:

Organic surge shampoo, BB sunday shampoo, L'oreal elvive conditioner, Batiste dry shampoo, Ojon hair mask, aircare, Haircare routine, Organic surge volume boost shampoo, L'oreal elvive nutri gloss crystal intensive conditioner, Batiste cherry dry shampoo, Bumble and bumble sunday shampoo, Ojon dry recovery 2 minute hair mask

I usually wash my hair every 2 days, and during the week, I like to use Organic surge volume boost shampoo. The shampoo is SLS free and very gentle on the scalp. It doesn't foam up as much as a normal shampoo, but as long as I ensure my hair is soaking wet first, I still get a decent amount of lather. The shampoo contains both peppermint and lemon essential oil, and I love it's subtle refreshing scent. It doesn't contain any silicone, however the presence of natural glycerine stops it from being too drying and I find it more moisturising than a lot of the shampoos I've tried in the past.

After shampooing, I always use a small blob of L'oreal Elvive nutri gloss crystal intensive conditioner. The conditioner is specifically designed for fine to normal hair and has a rich creamy texture. It takes a few minutes to rinse out, but once it does there's no residue and it doesn't weigh my hair down. I like the fact that it only needs 60 seconds to work, and it always leaves my hair tangle free, soft and smooth.

In between washes, I sometimes use Batiste dry shampoo to refresh and volumise the roots of my hair. I'm currently using the Cherry version.

At the weekend, I like to deep cleanse the roots, and intensively condtion the ends. My current products of choice are the Bumble and Bumble sunday shampoo and Ojon dry recovery 2 minute hair mask. The Bumble and Bumble shampoo really does live up to it's hype, and despite the price I would recommend it to anyone who struggles with greasy roots or uses a lot of products on their hair.

Finally I like to use a few drops of this new Ojon rare blends oil on the end of my wet hair. It contains 7 different oils, which when left alone separates out into these 3 layers (doesn't it look so pretty in the bottle). Scent wise it's fruity with a slight hint of nut and lingers lightly after application. A little bit goes a long way, and it really does help to smooth, nourish and add shine. I like the fact that it helps to prevent heat damage (thus neglecting the need for another styling product), but I do wish it came with a pump for ease of use.

Have you tried any of these products? What are you currently using as part of your haircare routine?

  2. Batiste is my favourite brand of dry shampoo and i don't think i can live without it. I always like to care for my hair because it is damaged enough as it is. I really need to try the bumble and bumble hair products because i have heard so much good things about them! :) Thanks for sharing xxx

    1. You're welcome. Batiste's great isn't it. Bumble and bumble are in Boots stores now, so you can go in and have a play with all the products x

  3. Loving the sound of the Ojon oil too! I could do with incorporating something like this into my routine. Boots also do they're own brand 'Expert' dry shampoo which is excellent. It's clear and not white and smells really clean (not overly scented). I used to be a Baptiste enthusiast, but have to say I'm now converted to the Boots brand as it comes through much easier and smells nicer! Great post, with great details! x

    1. Thanks Emma. I'd definitely recommend adding a hair oil into your routine, there's loads of good ones on the market now. I have to say I'm not a fan of the Boots own brand one but am glad it works so well for you x
