Three Haircare Saviours

I recently had a fairly big change in terms of my hairstyle and I went from having fairly long hair to having hair that barely grazes my shoulders (photo of said short hair). I have mentioned on this blog before that I tend to find haircare a very dull topic but since getting it chopped recently, I've been all about the hair products. I did not realise how much effort it takes to make short hair look decent on me! "Short hair don't care"? More like "short hair, give me all the products and pass the straighteners or I'll end up looking like Lord Farquaard". Over this period of learning how to style my shorter hair, I've found a few products that have really helped me achieve the kind of look I was going for with my hair. These are the three products I've been using every time I wash my hair and even though I am most certainly a haircare novice, I think they're pretty darn good!

So a fun thing I learned when I cut my hair short is that because I have naturally wavy hair, my ends kind of flick out in a 1960s-esque fashion. To remedy that situation I've started straightening my hair. I've always been very wary about using heat on my hair on a regular basis, so it was important for me to find a good heat protectant and I've found that in the Toni & Guy Heat Protection Mist. My hair isn't the most voluminous so for me it's all about products that won't weigh it down and this does a great job at that plus I like the smell too!

After straightening my hair I like to add a bit of volume and the best way I've found thus far to do that is by adding some dry shampoo. I know that this seems like a weird step when you've just washed your hair and it's not something I'll use after every wash, but it makes such a difference to the volume of my hair. I often add a few spritzes, work it in with my fingers and then give it a light brush through. My go-to for this is generally the Batiste Floral and Flirty Dry Shampoo. It's a super cheap one and it gets the job done very well!

I know this may seem slightly excessive, but on top of volume I also like to add some texture to stop things from looking too "done". Yes, I'm taking this whole styling thing very seriously! The Toni & Guy Casual: Sea Salt Texturising Spray is a great one for adding a bit of texture back into the hair and making the whole thing look a bit more messy.

I've really been enjoying putting a bit more effort into my hair lately, it's definitely a change from washing it, letting it dry however and then just heading out of the house! I am still very much a haircare amateur, so I'm still on the hunt for great products. What are some of your haircare must haves?
