Haircare Routine Part 2- Protect and Style


Today's post is part 2 of my haircare routine- check out part 1 here if you haven't seen it already!

I'm trying to grow my hair so I've recently started using Redken Anti Snap which is meant to protect the ends of your hair and prevent split ends- I haven't been using it long enough to know if it actually does, but I do like the feel it gives to my hair and my ends seem more healthy since I've started using this.
Since my hair is very dry, I always use an oil on my wet hair- my favourite is the Wella Luxe Oil because it smells really luxurious and nourishes your hair without leaving an oily film behind. Unfortunately it's quite expensive but this is actually my second bottle of it- that's how much I love it. And it does last a very long time, even though I have very thick hair and therefore use quite a lot.
Since I've been using quite a lot of heat on my hair recently I've been getting out the heat protection spray again- this one is by got2b and the spray is really easy to distribute evenly through the hair. Obviously it's hard to tell whether or not products like this work well but I believe that it does and it definitely smells good...
I've definitely found that my hair has been breaking a lot less since I've started using a wide tooth comb instead of a brush when it's wet. Your hair is in its most vulnerable state when it's wet so you have to be really careful with it! I picked this comb up at boots for under £10 and it has a really useful hook so you can actually keep it in your shower which I love.
After I've dried my hair I like to use a texturising spray because I really like the messy, lived in hair look. Thanks to Amelia Liana I found the Charles Worthington Volume&Bounce Texturising Spray, which she says is a dupe for the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray. I've never used the Oribe because my student budget just doesn't stretch that far but I love the CW offering, which you can probably tell from the amount of mentions it has gotten on the blog already! It gives incredible texture and volume with hairspray-like hold, and while I don't love the feeling of it in my hair I am definitely in love with the finish it gives so I am willing to compromise.
Last but not least I have to mention a girl's best friend- dry shampoo. We all know that washing our hair too often is bad for it and let's be honest, sometimes I just can't be bothered or don't have time so I reach for the dry shampoo. I love the one by Dove because it's a clear formula and also gives a bit of texture to the hair. This is my second bottle of it and when I got it it was on offer for £3 at Sainsbury's so that's definitely worth checking out!

I hope you enjoyed this post! What are your favourite styling products?
