First up – the wash! For that I used the Bumble and Bumble Let It Shine Shampoo. I’m still in love with the Ojon Volume Advance range but I’m running a little low so I’m trying to ration it out for special occasions, but the Bumble and Bumble seems to be doing a good job of cleaning my locks. For conditioner, I used the Phyto Express Conditioner – this stuff is supposed to work a treat for extremely damaged hair so I was expecting it to be thick and butter like, however it came out quite watery but adds a nice bit of moisture to my hair and it felt pretty smooth afterwards. Thumbs up. Then I decided to go for the full-on, hour-long, arm aching bonanza that is blow-drying my hair. I usually just run my fingers through my hair and give it a rough dry which leaves my hair in an ok state and takes around 20 mins, but today I fancied doing a proper blow-out. I popped in some Moroccan Oil and the Lee Stafford Heat Protection spray and got to work with a large round brush and my hairdryer. I’m sure you know the drill – section up your hair and then run each section through the brush and roll the brush back down so it’s like your hair is sitting in one big fat curler. With my hair now in (desperate) need of a cut this is the only way to get some kind of shape in it. A bit of volume at the roots with some nice waves nearer the ends, I even styled it in a centre-parting! Woo too much change for one day, I need to sit down!

The Weekend Post #7: The Blow-Dry
‘The Weekend Post’ series took a little holiday for Christmas but today it’s back with vengeance! I’ve had a nice and relaxing weekend, some nice lay-ins littered with a few champagne cocktails last night and then a pamper day today – it’s pretty much my perfect weekend! Of course I did do a bit of re-organising (as always) – god knows how I always find something to sort out. However after ‘batiste-ing’ by hair beyond it’s limits last night it was time for a nice wash so I decided that a little hair SOS would be my focus this weekend.
