Three Products That Have Changed My Hair - For The Better

Hello! This year for my birthday I was given some lovely hair products that I was more then happy to try. I have since then noticed a huge difference in my hair, and am loving it.


My hair is wavy/curly so while that can look cool, my hair was always super dry, and I got split ends very easily. I always had very dry hair before I washed it, and I just hated how unhealthy my hair was.

After using these three products for about a month I have really noticed the change in my hair. It is so much softer, and shinier first of all. It doesn't look unhealthy anymore. I hardly have any split ends, and my hair stays nice and soft every day between washes. I have also noticed that my hair has been growing a lot faster, and for me that's a good thing, because I am trying to grow out my hair.

1. The LaCoupe orgnx Moroccan Argan Oil

It says it is for instant smoothness, shine and frizz control. I would say this product does everything it claims and more. It has made my hair so much more shiny and soft, but it has also contributed to making my hair grow faster too. It smells nice as well, so that's a bonus. 

I only apply it after I have washed my hair when its still wet. I put 4-5 drops of the oil in my hands, rub them together, and then brush my fingers through my hair, making sure that I spread it out evenly. I then let my hair dry naturally, and enjoy lovely soft hair.



2. Lush Jason and The Argan Oil Solid Shampoo Bar
This smells amazing!! It has the rose-jam scent, it fills the whole bathroom with the refreshing scent. It also has argan oil, so it strengthens your hair from the roots. I'm guessing this has helped my hair grow faster too.

The first couple of times I used it I noticed my hair was a lot greasier a lot faster, but as I used it more my hair got used to it, and now my hair is soft and lovely after every wash. You rub this on your wet hair, and it lathers like normal shampoo. I think it will last a very long time, because it has been a month, and it has hardly gotten any smaller.


3. New Hairbrush - Tangleeze

It's pretty much a cheaper version of a tangle teezer. It is still amazing though. I use it to comb my hair before applying my argan oil, and I use it for pretty much every hair style. It is small so that makes it difficult to use for ponytail etc. but on a whole you can use it for a lot. It's great because you can keep it in your handbag with it's little cover.

I also like it because before I was given this, my hairdresser had told me to get a hairbrush without bobbles at the end, because they cause a lot of hair breakage. I think this has really helped my hair stay strong. I have also noticed less hair coming out when I brush it, so I am quite happy about that as well.





Also even though I haven't included it in my list of products, I thought I would just add in the conditioner I'm using. I'm currently using the Tresemmé moisture rich, lustrous moisture conditioner.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and got some ideas for your own hair care. Would love to hear about some products that have really made a difference for you.

My Style Inspiration

Hello, for this blog post, I thought i would share the three people who really inspire my clothes and outfits. They are all quite different, and I kinda meet in the middle of them. I would say that with my own personal style I aim for more classy, feminine clothing, and you will probably be able to tell with these people. I'd like to apologize in advance for all the photos, there are heaps!

Blair Waldorf:
For those of you who don't know, she was one of the main characters in Gossip Girl. She has a very elegant, feminine style that I really love. She almost never wheres pants, and always dresses quite modestly. One of her classic "Blair" accessories is a headband. She always wheres colour, and owns her own personal style. Since the show isn't filming I kind of just incorporate her style into what I wear.






Zoella:
I think there isn't one teenage girl who doesn't look up to Zoe. I love her effortless, cute, girly, and fun clothing choices. She is unique in her style, and is happy to embrace that, She also makes some slightly more elegant outfits, and gives lots of tips for people on a tighter budget. She also does really lovely make up, and I get lots of ideas from her. She is a great role model, and I love her.





  Lauren Conrad:
It was Lauren's book, Style, that first got me thinking about my own style and what I love. She has really girly clothing, and designs her own lines of clothing. Her lines are quite often based on Disney, which I love. Sometimes she goes out in slightly shorter stuff that I wouldn't wear, but her books are really helpful for developing your own style. She also has quite classic make up which I like.







So there it is my three main inspirations, I hope you enjoyed seeing what I like, and maybe got some ideas for yourself. Would Love to hear who you like clothing wise!
