Maintaining my hair I think is what makes a huge difference to it looking good or unkempt. Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer has been part of my routine for many years and if I don’t use it I regret it and my hair truly suffers. It doesn’t just make a small difference for me, it’s the difference between hair that has life, shine and volume after just one treatment to hair that can look dull, lifeless and dry. I use it up to three times a week and often sleep in it or leave it in all day, but of course you can leave it in for just a few hours. Don’t forget to use it whilst on holiday too if you can, as the sun can truly damage your hair in just a two week holiday.
Every six weeks I use the Hairfix Cleansing Conditioner. It’s superb and brings your hair back to life as it cleans away all the build-up. Ensure you read the instructions before use as it’s an unusual texture and you need to be specific on how it’s used. If you have your hair coloured, use this the night before and you won’t believe how your colour will look even better after it’s done.
I have always been a fan of the next two products. Firstly, Viviscal. I have invested in Viviscal since it was launched at QVC and helps to maintain the volume in my hair, and this is what I get a lot of wonderful comments about. It’s easy to take and just two a day does the trick, but you need to stick with it and be committed to see results as you’re not going to see a difference in just a few weeks. I think it’s worth the investment as our hair is our crowning glory and when we get older we are precious about every hair as it tends to get thinner and finer.
The Hairfix Follicle Plus Anti Age Haircare is a product I tried when it launched at QVC purely because I was skeptical and had to see it to believe it. I cannot rave about it enough. It sits by my bathroom sink and is used religiously every other night. I have the routine down to a tee, and it only takes me minutes to apply. I found the results astounding and it definitely gave me the results of thicker fuller looking hair around the hairline, widow’s peak and on the crown of the head. Those key areas where we start to see a change in as we get older. A small amount goes a long way too, so don’t over use it as its very tempting to in this 100ml size. Share it with the guys too. Just massage it into the areas of concern with your fingertips – great, easy, quick application. I apply it before I go to bed and wash it out the next day.
Finally, for those pesky grey hairs coming through Color Wow Root Cover Up is superb. I use the Platinum colour and it covers grey hair brilliantly and only comes out when you wash your hair with shampoo, so no rainy day disasters. The choice of colours is superb and it’s so easy to apply with no mess and it looks just like an eyeshadow. Just be brave and get stuck in as there’s no real technique. It’s perfect if you tie your hair back but tend not to when your colour needs doing as your hairline is showing too much grey. Tie your hair back and just apply it around the hair line. It will also get you more time away from the hairdressers and save you money on those regular visits to get your colour done.
Finally, good nutrition is a huge part of healthy, shiny hair, so ensure you eat well with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Here’s to great hair in 2018! Happy hair days!
Lots of love
