Holy Grail Haircare

The inspiration for this post came to me as I was showering at the gym and grabbed my trusty pot of Macadamia Deep Repair Masque. I was thinking to myself 'I cannot live without this product' as I applied it to my dry damaged bleach blonde hair. My hair has always been important to me and when I qualified as a hairdresser in 2009, I vowed to keep my hair in as good condition as possible even if I gave up hairdressing. I love how using quality products can really make a difference to the appearance of hair and can often feel more nourishing than high street alternatives. Don't get me wrong, there are some cheap haircare products that can work miracles - such as Bastiste, but when it comes to hydrating my hair, there are only certain brands I feel that I can trust.

When I was 16 years old I enrolled on a hairdressing course at my local technical college and spent many long days doing work experience in local salons. This is where my love affair with TIGI began. I remember walking into one of my placements and smelling the sweet aroma of the Bed Head 'Blonde Stuff' for the first time. The salon was a concoction of hair spray and candy scented fragrances, it was every girls dream. In between clients I used to sneak to the back room and spend 10 minutes playing with all the products. Although I'm not a hairdresser anymore, I'm thankful for everything that hairdressing taught me and I still spend a ridiculous amount of money on hair care products. Usually I buy salon sizes on websites such as www.capitalhairandbeauty.co.uk so they last me longer. Salon quality products can be on the expensive side, but they are not diluted like most of the products you can buy on the high street. This means that you're getting more product for you're money and you need much less product per wash, as well your hair stays cleaner for longer and feels in a better condition.

There are so many products I could mention in my 'Holy Grail Haircare', but instead I have gone with the three products I use on a regular basis. Firstly is the Bed Head 'Oh Bee Hive' dry shampoo (link). I was introduced to this product a few weeks ago when I was getting my hair done at Parklife and I fell in love with it. I'm a massive dry shampoo fan and I carry my Bastiste around with me everyday, the only thing is that I find my usual dry shampoo doesn't give me enough volume. I'm a girl that loves big curly hair. Not only does 'Oh Bee Hive' have a fun quirky name, it's a fabulous product that gives everything it says on the tin. It smoothes my fine hairs, adds volume and makes my hair look salon clean, it's perfection in a bottle.

My second 'holy grail' product is the Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Masque (link). Hand on heart, I really could not live without this product. My hair has been incredibly dry since bleaching it and this deep repair masque helps condition my hair, adds shine and also improve my hairs strength. I have been using this product for nearly 2 years now and I can't imagine not having it in my bathroom cabinet. 

My final holy grail is the TIGI Urban Anecdotes Recovery shampoo & conditioner duo (link). These products are like 'Yin and Yang', they compliment each other so well and together they add volume, shine and nourishment to my hair. They also smell incredible. Since using these products my hair looks healthier, feels better and I'm getting a lot more compliments.
