Hair confessions: part 1


It’s been a long time coming I know and  due to the amount of messages I get asking what I use on my hair I thought I would write to you over two blogs. My hair routine is in fact practically fuss-free and with great results…

My shampoo and conditioner is from Color Wow. My fine hair loves the gel shampoo texture of which I use two or three pumps each wash. Surprisingly I use the normal to thick conditioner and again three or four pumps . For me a great shampoo and conditioner is where it all starts. Using luke-warm water I massage the shampoo into the palm of my hands before I put it in my hair so it’s not just sitting in my scalp. I massage the conditioner into the ends and mid length to get as much conditioner into this area as possible. I rinse with cool water to create the extra gloss and shine.

I use a Tangle Teezer to comb through my damp hair. I do it very  gently so as not to break the hair, but first I use a few spritzes of Daily Damage & Defence by Philip Kingsley to give my hair strength and to help detangle. It’s known as Elastisizer  in a bottle. My hair loves oils and after combing through I use three pumps of either Liz Earle Hair Oil or Living Proof Hair Oil. Both are superb and they don’t leave the hair looking flat or feeling greasy. I push it into and through my hair with my palms flat and the ends of my hair with my fingertips.

Now it’s ready to rough dry with the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer. As I am only rough drying and not styling with  the hairdryer you can use a hairdryer that works for you or try the Babyliss Smooth Vibrancy hairdryer, but the Dyson is super quick cutting down my drying time. I then add a few more drops of oil to the slightly frizzy sections and then I’m ready to style with my Babyliss Big Barrel Hot Brush which creates my style so quickly leaving me with smooth glossy waves. It’s the best hairstyler I have ever used.

On my next blog I’ll let you into the easy maintenance secrets of my glossy hair and how I treat it and keep it full of volume and strength.

Happy hair days!

    Hi Jill, thanks for helping us. Any chance of you videoing your routine, like Claire Sutton did a while back? Mainly to see your technique of using the Babyliss hot brush.
